Hi All, I recently just purchsed the Leica M10 (upgraded from the M240), and would like to seek your advice on which of the 2 lenses above I should get. I have attached the following list of bodies and lenses that I currently have. M10 M6 Konica Hexanon 60mm F1.2 Leica 50mm F2 Summicron APO Leica 35mm F2 Summicron Version 2 (8 elements) I shoot with my digial M 95% of the time (well I did only just recently purchased the M6) with my 50APO. I plan on using the 8 Elements more on the M6 for Black and White photography. So now that I am looking to add a wide angle lens, which of the 2 would you recommend? I know many people say that it's best to pair a 28mm with a 50mm, and a 24mm with a 35mm; and that 28 would work better if I wish to shoot some street + landscape, whereas the 24mm will be better for pure landscape. But do both lenses render really differently? Is it that much more convenient knowing that u do not need an EVF for the Elmarit? Could the Elmar be used for some street photography as well? And since the 28mm is much newer, does it have something the other doesn't? I would really appreciate if those of you who own / have used both lens could let me know your thoughts on both lenses performance wise, and which would you pick if you were me. Thanks a bunch! Cheers, Jeffrey
I find the level gauge to be an indispensable tool for controlling perspective, when capturing images of buildings, or in street photography. Once you got used to taking pictures with level gauge turned on you find use for it in any setting. Unfortunately I find the level gauge on M10-P rather disappointing and here is why: Level on M240-P is strong, visible at any light and is easy to read. 10-P level in contrast is poor graphic, can't be seen in bright light and worst of all it disappears when you need it most. i.e. when half pressing shutter release button. Let say you want to take meter exposure value from somewhere else in front of you before framing your picture. To save the exposure reading in memory you press and hold the shutter release button but that action removes the level gauge! I have attempted to compare two cameras on attached images that admittedly are not not in good quality but it does the job! Note that the circle in the middle of M10-P images is there due to centre weighted metering that was selected at the time and is not related to the level gauge 240 v 10 looking up RFS 300.pdf 240 v 10 looking down RFS 300.pdf 240 v 10 level RFS 300.pdf 240 v 10 looking up.pdf 240 v 10 looking down.pdf 240 v 10 level view.pdf
