CL FW 3.1 : Do not allowed always ON touch focus !

Recommended Posts

Brand new option for CL with firmware 3.1 : always ON touch focus. Such as found with the Q2. Is a total mess with the CL. 

The CL screen is to close to the palm. And it always registers new focus point at the far upper or lower right corners. Way worst than wandering focus point. It makes the CL almost unusable !

Can’t imagine why I’d turn on touch focus unless I was actually about to use it.

With Q2 when you need to touch focus. You just have to raise your finger and select a point of focus on the screen. It is fast and non obtrusive. 

With CL FW2.1 you have to press one function button to call focus mode menu. Then change to touch focus select only or touch focus and shoot. Then you stay always on touch focus until you change it back to anything else. It is cumbersome. 

With CL FW3.1 Leica brings Q2 great idea to the CL. But its screen is too close to your hand. Making always ON touch focus unusable. Very silly. Now it is even more cumbersome to activate and deactivate touch focus. Because it is now a different menu item than focus mode ! So lame.

Ah....I wondered why my focus point was in the top upper right corner, somewhere it's never been before, now I know..FW3.1. 

I've now turned TF off, never used it before anyway.

I see. 

I don't really like AF very much, use only manual focus M and R lenses anyway. Any focusing mistakes are mine... not caused by the camera. :)

I suppose that Leica assumes that touch focus will only be used on a tripod. To be honest, I cannot think of any other use.

      Greetings!
      Anyone tried to use the little flash unique that comes with the Leica D-Lux 7 package on a Leica CL body?  Would that be compatible?   (just for fill flash purpose)

      Dear Leica-Enthusiasts,
      I have been shooting with the Leica CL since a few months now and always use M lenses with the Leica and Novoflex adapters. However, over these last months I have noticed that lens-adapter-camera combination is not completely rigid. I can now slightly rotate the mount back and forth. It does not seem to affect the IQ but I am worried that it might loosen even more.
      Has anyone had similar experiences? I will probably just send it in to Wetzlar...

      Guten Abend,
      schon lange bin ich lesendes Mitglied im Forum. Ich bin 44 Jahre alt und fotografiere seit vielen Jahren Natur und Straße, vor allem Makro und Street und liebäugle seit langem mit einer Leica CL.
      Jetzt habe ich mich endlich durchgerungen und mich für das Sondermodell der Leica CL Bauhaus entschieden. Ich gebe zu, ich habe mich in dieses schlichte Design verliebt.
      Leider war ich wohl zu spät... überall ausverkauft. Kann mir aus dem Forum jemand helfen? Gibt es noch irgendwo eine Chance an ein Exemplar zu kommen? 
      Ja ich weiß, die Edition ist nahezu gleich dem Originalmodell bis auf den Schriftzug und den Gurt... aber verliebt ist verliebt.
      Würde mich freuen wenn jemand etwas weiß.
       
      Vielen Dank vorab und schöne Grüße aus Bayern 
      Nadine

      Looking at a preowned CL. Anybody know how to bring up the shutter count?  Appreciate it.
