Thanks Andy.

 

Dunham Massey is well worth a visit in its current guise as The Stamford Military Hospital.

 

Yes, for the most part they allow indoor photography, although the odd property doesn't seem to have received the memo from Head Office

Lovely photos Jono, both artistically and technically.

 

Do you have any further experience with Leica M lenses on the T, and in particular how do you think the files compare with those from the M240?

More macro shots with the Leica T and the Leica 60mm macro elmarit R.

NB

No tripod was used in the making of these shots.

The EVF was used without focus magnification for focusing.

It worked really well, and the general setup is a pleasure to use

Thanks for the lovely shots. But tell me, does the sensor need cleaning already? It looks like that to me from shot no. 2, 5 and 8. Just like my M-E I guess.

Hi Mark

I've used quite a lot of M lenses on it - they seem to do well. . . The files are much more like those from the XVArio - probably a bit less dynamic range than the M . . . more 'traditional' colour. I like both.

Hi There

The sensor gets dirty sometimes - but I've not needed to use anything other than a blower brush - I guess I should have tided those up, but it doesn't usually get to me.

Certainly, access is easy, so if it needs cleaning it'll be a snap.

 

all the best

And, not that it will worry most of us, as far as I have experienced there is still a total ban on the use of flash - thank goodness. The trouble is that a lot of people don't know how to switch their flash off. The stewards are pretty quick to act when they see a flash go off!

 

This long overdue change is a great step forward as there are many fantastic photographic opportunities in these wonderful properties.

Interestingly, I first saw this "salt" photograph of yours in color over on Flickr - am assuming you know it's there under Transcontinenta BV'a photo stream:

/applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5531/14072058745_f048b2797a_b.jpg&key=c27eb3e4fe5cb72cc2fce6b7e509759048bf52cb933ba927c971254232651ea1">

 

I loved it in color the moment I saw it! Very nice in B&W, too, Jono.

 

That volcano shot is wild - never would have guessed what it was!

The color shot almost looks three-dimensional... well done!

Hi there

I didn't know it was there, but I was credited, and there is permission for it to be used, thanks for the heads up though.

You are more than welcome, Jono. The set of photos was a bit confusing to me. I am glad, however, that you gave permission for the photograph to be used and that they weren't up to no good - plus, it's a wonderful image.

Charged the battery and went for a walk with the Noctilux 0.95 fitted. Out of camera JPEGS, everything auto (apart from aperture and focus, obviously), downloaded using Aperture (which I am not really that familiar with).

 

First, some late autumn, early winter colour.

 

AWB, ISO100, f/0.95 @ 1/500

      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.
    • By wingedb11
      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.
