I may be going to Tokyo some time next year. I'd like to know what my options would be as far as renting Leica equipment goes. Don't know where to start. Google search doesn't yield much. Any places that you know of? How easy is it to rent there? What are the requirements (if any)? Any input would be much appreciated. Ta in advance.
Hi all, I have had an SL with 24-90 for 18 months. Lovely IQ but heavy combination so been using a couple of Zeiss ZM lenses (35/1.4 and just got the 50/2). Enjoy manual focus on the SL and the EVF is great....although it is still clearly an electronic VF, not optical The decision to go with the SL was difficult - I was torn between the SL or an M. At that point I had a full range of Fuji gear but wanted my first full frame digital and had always wanted a Leica. It really was a head vs heart debate - my head questioning the viability of a rangefinder mechanism today etc. Anyway....I am once again considering an M. Tried the M10 pre Xmas and produced some very pleasing images, with crisp focus. I am happy staying at 35 and 50mm but a bit concerned about manual focus on the M and (probably a bigger issue), not ‘seeing what you get’ in terms of image as I am used to EVF. The lack of info in the VF concerns me a bit I have come close recently to buying an M10P and 35 summicron but wonder if I am better going for a used M to start with - chance to prove to myself that I can get on ok with it. Could even use my existing ZM lenses initially. So any advice on used Ms pls? Cheapest entry is an M8 but I don’t want to go so cheap that I get an experience that puts me off....so an M240? Other option is to rent one for a week, anyone help me out with recommendation pls (UK)? Thanks everyone.
