I have a love-hate relation ship with my M8

 

every now and then when it anoyes me again I decide to sell the piece of shit

and moments later I love it again and giving it names, let it slip into my hands just for the fun of it

 

;-)

I bought a Panasonic GF-1 about a year ago and put away my "annoying" M8. The GF-1 is easy to carry around and takes great snap shots. Several weeks ago my wife and I went on a trip to a place that just begged to be photographed. I took the GF-1. When we got home I looked at the pictures and while they were very nice they weren't in the same league as the pictures that I could have taken with my M8.

Put good Leica lenses on an M8 and use the camera within its performance envelope and you (we) will be rewarded with jewels on the card. I have a GF1 and D300s, all great cameras, but not the same, even with great lenses.

What a waste of the 50 Lux ASPH in my opinion....

 

I think, the focus tab should have been made of massive gold instead of plastic.

Other from that, I find, it is a very, very beautiful camera.

A few years ago I was in Cochem (Germany) & saw a gold M-something for sale at the local market (might have been a wine festival or similar, I forget

)

 

Anyway, this was before I knew anything much about Leica & I thought that it must be a fake.In retrospect I should have bought it - as an investment obviously.

Wow, just realized one of my posts on this thread disappeared without a trace. Unless I was in a dream when posting that...

 

Anyway...

      This Camera was deliverded to me 18 Nov. directly from Leica Camera AG. I opened the box to examine the cameras functions indoors. There are less than 100 shutter actuations.The box includes everything exactly how it was shipped to me by Leica AG. It is a very beautiful premium compact camera with 4/3 sensor and great functions.
      I will ship anywhere in EU for $25.00 until Dec 15.
      After Dec. 16 I will bring to The States and ship inside the US for free.

      Does anyone own or has anyone seen a Leica Q2 Thumb support?
      Thanks in advance for a quick ping if you have — cheers!

      Disclaimer: I am very new to the SLx firmware, so it may be user error here, but thanks in advance if you can solve this issue.  
       
      Does anyone have an idea how to turn on permanent exposure simulation when the camera is in Manual mode ( set aperture, set shutter speed, auto iso)?  The SL2 will not preview the exposure even when the shutter is half way pressed.  I think it’s the autoISO that is disabling the exp preview in Manual mode.  When you use exposure compensation in Manual mode, it doesn’t change the look of the preview on the lcd at all, the exposure doesn’t seem to change until you take a picture and then see the screen as all black or washed out.  
      I had the same problem with the Q2, I posted there a few months ago without a solid answer to the issue.  
      Even when the exposure simulation is set to PASM, the exposure (f stop, shutter speed and iso) is not simulated when looking at the rear LCD or through the view finder.  
      On the M10-p, this is not the same deficiency of exposure preview at all.  On the M, With the shutter set, the aperture set (manual lens of course), and the iso on Auto, you can change the Ev compensation and watch the preview react by brightening or darkening without having to half press the shutter.  The live view reflects the shot you are actually taking, unlike the SL2 which does not display how bright or dark the shot is going to come out.

      Quick and dirty corner performance test using S1R and SL2.
      SL2 on Left S1R on Right. Lens is 28mm Cron ASPH V1 @f2 minimum focus distance. Pretty nice bump in corner IQ from SL2.
