A few shots from lunch break...

Recommended Posts

Thanks for these and for your initial reactions. I'm glad you're enjoying your T time.

 

I hope you'll continue your impressions as you get to know your camera better. Also be sure to add some photos to the sticky thread above, when you have a chance.

If what you posted is just jpg straight ooc barring the cropping I must say that compatibly with the reduced size for the sake of uploading the results are first class.

 

Thanks,

Bruno

Yeh images seem really clean to me...this is the B&W high contrast mode.

Ah, that's just what I asked you over on Flickr. So this is an in camera conversion using one of their modes - it looks very good to me.

Looking at the DNG of the one shot at f/2, with the lunch carts, I see quite a lot of green discoloration in the OOF shadows due to longitudinal chromatic aberration. I hope this aberration of the 23mm/2 gets better at smaller apertures, lenses usually do. The Zeiss 100mm/2 Makro has a similar level of LOCA wide open, but improves on stopping down.

In the same DNG there's also magenta CA around the nose of the lady in the forefront, which is quite pronounced. I think I saw similar effects with the Noctilux 0.95.

So far I have the strong impression that the camera does herself an excellent work on jpegs by removing aberrations. In the DNG files there's more detail to carve out, but it also implies a lot more work to do to clean the file.

 

Cheers,

I'm finding that I'm not able to get as good images in Lightroom as the camera produces in JPG. But presumably there's two reasons for this: 1. Lightroom does not have a profile for this camera yet, 2. I have been told my firmware is not yet final.

I had the very same impression processing with Rawtherapee (I'm a Linux user) the DNGs you kindly shared. Therefore I believe that the difficulty to tweak the DNGs be actually software agnostic and that Leica engineers did an excellent job with the jpeg correction algorithms.

This seems to be a camera for the advanced user who doesn't want to spend time tweaking the files.

Bruno

Just noticed something. I have a tiny ding (dent) above the Leica logo that I must have caused during today. S'pose I could cry about it, but then I got this camera to use it. (Still haven't taken off the screen protector though, building up to it!!)

It's the slings and arrows that we take that make us strong - now it will look like it belongs to you!

I'm amazed

I've got an empty body here, and the bit above the logo is really substantial and thick, amazing to think you could ding it . . .perhaps it was like that when you got it?

 

maybe you should wait until May 25th and then suggest a replacement

 

all the best

It's extremely sexy, but it's always bare aluminum alloy, so unless there's some surface hardening treatment or wear resistant coating I fear it's inevitably vulnerable to scratches and dents.

Best thing you might do would be buying some kinky lingerie like T snap & flap or keep it in an everready case. Maybe the neoprene one originally thought for the M series might fit.

 

Cheers,

Bruno

I believe that it is anodised silver or black. Bare aluminium would look scruffy very quickly.

      I bought my first Leica recently, a T. I'd always loved the design, the single block of aluminium build, and been intrigued by the touchscreen operating system. It always seemed to be a very modern interpretation of an APS-C camera by a company that's know for its long traditions. And with prices so low I thought it was worth trying one out. I'm a bit of a camera tart, you name it over the last 10 years and I've probably had one. I'm a hobbyist rather than a serious photographer and the feel of a camera and the enjoyment of using it is almost as important to me as the image quality.
      I didn't have a lens for it and while I was deciding which ones I should get I ordered the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 from China. It's a manual lens (I haven't shot manual for years), and quite long (82.5mm equivalent) but very cheap, and it luckily arrived the morning of my holiday to Suffolk so I packed the T as well as my Pana GX9 just in case.
      I was quite surprised just how much I enjoyed using a manual focus lens after so long away. I'm desperately short of practice but thanks to the T's ability to let you zoom in to focus (thanks to everyone on here who helped me work out how to do it) I think I did ok. My Visoflex 020 hasn't arrived yet so all my shots were done using the screen to compose and focus, which was a bit tricky.
      To say I was pleased would be an understatement. I love the feel of the T, think the image quality with the 7artisans was very nice, and loved the look and feel of the pairing. I've got a 35mm Voigtlander M mount as well, just waiting for the adapter to arrive! I think that will be a more useful day to day lens. But even so I found the 55mm quite useful, and even managed some wildlife pics. 
      Most of the images below were taken at F4, with one or two at f1.4 for a bit of variety. Any feedback or advice is more than welcome, I certainly consider myself a Leica beginner, despite my advanced age!

      I have a couple questions for those who have owned or had experience with the T and TL bodies. I realize this has been discussed in other threads, but I’m hoping for a little more insight. Even when auto review is turned off on my T body, the captured image lingers on the screen for a second (the equivalent of "blackout" on other cameras), prohibiting me from immediately composing my next shot. I admit that's not a lot of time, but it can have an impact on my shooting workflow. So my questions are 1) do the TL and TL2 also have this issue, and 2) does using a faster memory card decrease the time it takes for the monitor to become live again? For reference, I'm using a Panasonic SDHC Class 10 UHS-3 card with a 45 MB/s write time, and I'm shooting RAW (DNG) with 1.8 MB jpeg files. The T has no option for shooting DNG only, unfortunately.

      Hello everyone - I'm new here and would like to introduce myself.
       
      After a long absence from photography and recently only snapping with my (very good) camera phone, today i bought a brand new Leica T (silver) with 18-56 zoom lens. I've asked the company to update the firmware before shipping and want to ask you if there is any need in addition to whatever comes in the box. E.g. a decent strap, a cover for the body etc. I cannot find any filters to sit on the lens i.e. ND, UV etc.
      I do not intend to look for a VF atm and would rather put funds toward a 23mm Summicron.
       
      What are your thoughts please?

      Hi all - new to the forum and new to Leica!
       
      Just got an as new Leica T this week and have a couple of bugs I'd like to fix:
       
      Firstly the Leica T app was working fine until i upgraded the firmware to 1.7 - any ideas? won't always connect and when it does cant read the pics from my SD.
       
      Secondly - the strap lugs won't click into place without me putting the pin in - surely should only need the pin when taking the strap out?
       
      Any advice would be great!
       
      Thanks
