Leica T/TL/TL2 - the Image thread

@Mara7

 

Thank you for your kind comments—Cremona is a nice place for photography.

 

I have no problems with the start-up time of the T, or with its responsiveness in general.

 

All the shots are hand-held, I rely on Auto ISO to counter camera shake in low light conditions.

 

Thanks again.

Nice pictures.... LR 5? How did you get the warm nice colors?

Best regards Alexander

 

 

 

 

 

 

QUOTE=jmr;2719328]I took the T and the 23mm Summicron on holiday to Cremona, in northern Italy, last week.

 

There's an album on my Flickr page with some more shots. Hope you like them.

I've created a preset in Aperture that I use to give my colour shots the look of Fujifilm Astia, or something close to it, that I find pleasing.

I agree with everyone, John - and as you already know, I love your Fuji Astia style, as well!

As you know, Aperture doesn't yet support the version of DNG produced by the T, although it will from the Yosemite release of OSX in the Autumn.

 

Until then I push the RAW files from the camera through Lightroom to produce JPGs which I adjust and store in Aperture. I prefer the JPGs Lightroom produces, even with a simple batch processing setting, to those direct from the camera. When Yosemite comes out I plan to switch over to using Aperture to process the RAW files.

Pretty happy with how this turned out!

 

I'm using the T with the Summicron 23mm.

 

Settings for the shot:

 

Manual Focus

1/400 sec. shutter speed

f/2.0

ISO 100

 

Taken at 8:05 PM CST. The golden hour!

 

Comments/Critiques are welcome.

 

P.S. Bonus for me was realizing my son is in the background struggling to stay on the squirrel ride. Haha.

Some shots from a recent holiday in the Loire Valley, France, with the T and the 23mm Summicron.

 

 

 

 

 

There are more in my Flickr gallery - hope you like them.

Josh and John - thank you both very much for keeping this thread going. Loved the "squirrel ride" observation.

And I urge everyone to take a look at John's Flickr set because he has some wonderful images. While there seem to be some who don't quite achieve what they'd like with this camera, there clearly are those who do so beautifully. Looking forward to more!

John's images are some of the best I've seen from many photographers on any medium in some time. Such tasteful use of exposure, respect to color, and wonderful composition. Kudos to a great talent, John!

Great shots John! Lots of inspiration to find in your flickr gallery. I like how well exposed your images are. I discovered that the RAW files from the T are a tad overexposed (even on v1.1).

 

I brought my Leica T and Summicron 35mm f/2 for a trip to the cabin this weekend. I also made an Exposure-story with more images from the T: A trip to the cabin by Kristian Pletten

Kristian, you and your "wolfpack" clearly had a wonderful adventure in an exceptionally beautiful place. Thanks so much for posting your photos here, as well as including a link to your story. I really enjoyed looking at your photos, as well as reading the storyline!

 

Vikas, thanks to you also - this group thread is great because not only do we get to see people's first impressions with this new camera, but we also have the opportunity to see such different parts of the world, as we all have different walks of life.

 

I know I'm not alone in appreciating everyone's photographs.

      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.

      anyone get a chance to play around with one of these yet?

      Hello I currently have a Leica TL2 using a adaptor for a M mount lens .
       
       I want to get a auto focus lens that will work with the TL2,  I just don’t want to spend 1,500.00+  At the moment.
       Do I have any options ?
    • By plasticman
      Because the Leica T M-adapter is an order item in Stockholm, I can’t try one before buying. I like the T, but not being certain of focus in low-light situations is occasionally irritating. And the Novoflex doesn’t have focus-zoom assistance.
       
      If you have the Leica M-adapter, how do you use it? Is it possible to zoom in, check focus, then zoom out again to compose your image? How’s the zoomed image? Sharp and detailed, or noisy and blurred? 
       
      What options are available for the dials in manual mode? Right now, the left-hand dial is wasted on f-stop (which is disabled with M-lenses attached, of course). Does the Leica adapter free the dial for something useful?
       
      In general, is it much more useful than the third-party adapters? Does the camera-system adapt to it intelligently, or is it a missed opportunity?
       
      PS: I saw Jono Slack’s review of the T, where he dismisses the adapter as less than useful. I wonder if firmware updates or other factors have given anyone another perspective?
