No focus peaking???

Three weeks? You have an extremely tolerant dealer .


I bought it in Amazon Prime, I have 30 days to try. I actually bought it 16 days to be exact.

I love the T, really, but I can't trust it, at least not yet.

For anyone who, like me, held some hope that a future firmware update of the T might include focus peaking, I just received a response from a query I sent to Leica that "it´s not planned to do this on the Leica T."


The shimmer works just fine for focusing on subject matter with lines, flat surfaces with texture, anything with contrasting edges, etc.  But for smaller subject matter with contoured surfaces, it's not accurate.  In moderate or low light, there's little or no shimmer; and in adequate lighting, the shimmer sometimes appears for more than a degree or two of focus throw--often yielding almost-but-not-quite critically focused images, which is most frustrating.


Much as I enjoy shooting with my T, it hasn't left my dry cabinet since I got an E-M5 Mark II for bird chasing a few months ago.  The E-M5 II has adjustable focus peaking, weather sealing, and an astoundingly effective image stabilization system, all lacking on the T.
