I am sure that there are questions and answers for this camera type too. Post them here, T-TL-TL2 owners.

I may have an obvious question. Some system shots I notice are overexposed, whites completely washed out, leaving burnt out blobs in the image, needing a twist of the ev wheel when in aperture priority mode to - . Thurthermore , I have now a Manfrotto supplied 18% grey fabric disc which folds in my pocket. The performance of my Leica T has rocketed in white balance, richness of colours, everything. I am almost wondering if the huge leap in quality is going to dwarf results when/if I upgrade to a TL2 ! Why do people point and shoot when they have afforded such highly priced and very highly capable technical equipment. My experience stems from darkroom knowledge of processing in black and white from age around ten or eleven.

Answer:

 

1. Digital shots should be exposed like slide film, otherwise you risk blowing essential highlights. Pulling up shadows is easy, provided you use DNG
2. White balance is set in raw conversion, provided you shoot raw (again

),so a grey card is not really needed, but it can make life easy.
3. The TL2 sensor is a jump forward compared to the T.

In case that a third party Chinese battery stucks in your TL camera (only slightly comes out) a thin plastic card (like a credit card) can help. Slightly insert its angle in the gap between the battery and the grip and "push" the mechanism manually.
