This is quite the transition and shows how user-friendly the Q2 really is. 
I’m trying out the M10R with the Summilux-M 1.4/35 ASPH and an older Summicron-M 2/50. Using the 50 is a lot easier for some reason (although I’m not sure how it’s listed in the menu for choosing a lens manually). The EVF lines are brighter and the patch larger making focusing easier. Using the 35 the lines are dimmer and the patch smaller, and it’s really distracting seeing both the lens and the lens hood while composing an image. 
What am I missing?

thank you

Look up the lens number, ie: 11826, and look for that number in the list of 50mm lenses in the menu.

The focus patch takes a little getting used to for a new user. You’ll get it.

You will learn to ignore that hood in the viewfinder. Try keeping both eyes open briefly while  framing.

      Hello! I have been selling all my Nikon SLR gear to purchase something that I can just go and use. For 20 years I have had numerous lenses and cameras and just got tired of lugging it all around. So, after lots of video watching, reading and speaking with friends and comparing brands and models, I visited my “local” Leica shop yesterday.....ordered the Q2!  Looking forward to “learning photography” again and slowing down with my shooting. Looking forward to the conversations here. Hope to have the camera, ready to learn, within 2 weeks. Cheers!!

      Where can one find the battery charge level?
      What's the best way to extend the battery life? 
      If I shoot DNG/JPG, where do the JPGs end up? I don’t see them when I import the files into Lightroom. Are they the ones transferred over to the Leica Photos? 
      If one shoots A for aperture, shutter speed, and focus, is it the same as Full Auto in Scene Mode?
      I notice the photos I take in Black and White turn to color when I import them into Lightroom. Importing the B&W photo into Leica Fotos shows it is B&W, which I assume is so that it can be shared. My question is: Are there specific Lightroom presets that show the Leica style?
      I occasionally get the red box with spinning circle. Why does it do that? I assume it’s writing to disk but I’ve had occasions where I haven’t taken a photo at all, so there’s nothing to “write to disk.”
      Can I use the Leica Q2 LCD panel to focus/shoot like my Canon 5D Mark IV? Maybe I’m wrong but I recall seeing a video of a Leica Q doing so. 
      Does changing the user profile also change what’s found on the favorites menu? 
      Is there any sort of logic for how to set up the FN versus the wheel button? I appreciate their usefulness but I find I can’t remember what’s where and I end up going back to the menu button. Any suggestions on how to set it up logically?

      Hello to all
      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! 
      I am new here and new to film cameras, kind of.
      Used to shoot film in high school when I didn't really pay attention to photography as a medium, just a tool to keep some memories. Then, years later fell in love in video production and bought the canon 5dmk2 (that I finally sold two weeks ago). Having that camera helped me learn very fast so I started both shooting music videos and do photography, events and anything really. Not saying that I am a pro, I just get by doing projects I really like and fitting my hobby to become my second best work skill. 
      My "real job" is leather craft. I have a small workshop here in Zagreb, Croatia. We used to make a lot of high quality stuff for police and security agencies, but I have expanded my field to a lot of custom work (custom stuff for harley bikes, musicians and lately photographers). That way the creative juices are always flowing. Combining high quality standards, durability and cool designs gets you long way... 
      Of all my friends I got stuck on digital cameras for the longest time. Cause they used film for fun and research, while I was more or less working with my cams. At some point I did not know where the work stops and I needed a step back, slower gear... Manual focus lenses were the first slower gear. Every time I would travel to UK my camera bag was heavier and bigger and the basic kit I really needed was so simple. That I have solved with Sony a7s. A really cool little camera for work, but still the colors are a big problem there... 
      This summer I finally decided to get a film camera for a trip my girlfriend and I was planning. We bought an old olympus OM10. We went to Tre Cime, Italy, and hiked a lot around Dolomites. We used both the canon and olympus and were so excited to get home and develop all the rolls. When we did that and compared the pics to the digital ones I just felt like all the time I was messing around in raw converter I was actually looking for this film photo. And not just that, a lot of the colors were not even present in the digital pics... The digital ones had more detail and they seem sharper and so, but film is something else...
      To cut the long story short. I have decided to get a decent film camera and Leica was my first choice along with the Hasselblad 500... Hass lost due its size. 
      A couple weeks ago I decided to sell my canon to get some more traveling money (as I am going to USA for a month, to shoot pics and do some video) and a couple days later Leica M3 from 1955. knocks at my door. What could I do

      Hello everyone.
      I do not own Leica camera. Still carrying 6kg+ in my backpack full of Nikon DX.
      so Im about to jump for something that is simply 600g FX and one lens. 
      Leica Q fits that description, as I like travel photography, nature and street photo. I'm planing trip to Cuba this year and I go with 600g camera only.  
      Will Q also survive normal weather conditions? (light rain, fog, cold, warm, humidity) or are they fragile?
      Apparently Q is not weather sealed? My Nikon D90 also not and went through hell, Rain, fog, Humidity in warm climate and it survived. 
      does Leica cameras go ever on sale? Or can dealer provide discount?
      Where do you shop? 
      -> do you use protective case? 
      thank you guys for your patience.
