Muriwai.

 

What interests me is the image quality. With "only" 16MP, the detail and image quality is superb. But, the complaints about the AF speed and electronics (EVF switch) are probably justified. I like the UI (but then I'm an iPhone user), and I don't machine gun pictures, but it needs care, particularly for fast moving objects.

Hmmmmmm, thanks again.

Can't hurt to go see, look through one, touch, try it.

The "issues" sound similar to my beloved X1.

Well, a wasted trip, while I did see two brand new (demo) "T's", neither had a charged battery, so the UI still remains a mystery to me. I came away dejected, feeling that the NZ agents would have at least had something I could have looked at, looked through, and fired a couple of shots off with. I'd forewarned them of my visit as well, to no avail. They were apologetic, but I still came away despondent.

 

Not sure what to do now, which way to jump. It's my second try at seeing what the T is all about, and still yet to see what one actually looks like powered up. I did manage to touch an X Vario, but it was the T I went to see.

Grumbly I am.

Thank you John. I'm there infrequently, usually parked at Mechanics Bay for anything from an hour to five or six hours. I usually walk into the CBD if I am there for a while. Normally more often over the summer months.

 

Your offer is most gracious. I don't really need to shoot anything/everything, but the ability to look at what the menus are like etc, and maybe see how it shoot would be invaluable.

Regards

Gary

And here are some shots using the 50 cron. I think it works quite well.

      After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ? 
       
      A little history :
      - 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
      - 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
      - 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
      - 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens  
      Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all ! 
      We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7. 
       
      Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
      None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS. 
      No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8. 
      No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm. 
      These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses. 
       
      So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses  ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But  no new lens = death of the system. 
      Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade. 
       
      So what do you think about this situation ?

      Do L-Mount lens from Sigma or Panasonic work with the original T (typ 701) ?

      I use the camera as a backup to my CL with the variety of TL lenses or adapted lenses. I might be looking into a Panasonic for high res-images. The Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 is a favored lens I'm looking at, but there are others I might look at.

      Don‘t know how others fell. But just saw that there is a new Firmware for the CL but nothing for the TL2 and this since a while. Communications turn primarily around CL. Is the T-series dead?

      Mike Johnston at TheOnlinePhotographer blog has been musing about the perfect 'simple' digital camera again, and I can't help thinking that a Leica T(L/2) fits his description perfectly - if only he (and his readers) knew it.
      He acknowledges that Leica is the only camera company embracing photographic simplicity, but the spectre of Leica prices keeps coming back - both in the blog posts and the comments - and the only cameras they seem to acknowledge are the M-series.
      To me, the menu system in the Leica T is the most intuitive and minimal interface that's possible in an advanced digital camera - especially the way that each user can choose their own subset of visible menu items: I have only 4 items in that menu, and regularly only use one of them (the metering type).
      Nowadays the T can be bought for less than a Fuji XE3. You can even pair it with an adapter for non-Leica manual lenses (ie: Olympus OM). Couldn't be simpler or cheaper.
      Incidentally, one of the points being missed in a lot of the comments on TOP's site is the scenario where the user changes a setting on a camera unintentionally. A lot of the commenters say it's easy to just ignore menus and settings they don't understand. But this was one of the problems I persistently had with my X100 - I'd pick it up after a long hiatus and somehow an exposure or other setting had been inadvertently changed, and it would first take me a while to notice, and then usually a long time to fix (hunting through tens of menus). And I'm an app developer, so used to device complexity.
      The T has solved all those problems perfectly.
