The specifications are identical to the original X2 and the exterior is upgraded to match the new T-system: Now we have a bewildering range of products that offer comparable features and performances in widely differing packages.
It’s a matter of taste and usually photographers discuss a ‘nice’ or ‘pleasant’ bokeh the out-of-focus area is always unsharp why the quality discussed is if one likes the way it renders or not by a particular lens. In Leica M cameras two pictures has to meet and lay ‘on lecia of each other’ for the picture to be in focus.
Imagine the range of possibilities: It is in fact a modern replica of the M3 even the viewfinder lacks the prominent white bars that grace the viewfinder of all digital M cameras. This is poetry and insight at the same time. With this strategy Leica followed in the footsteps of Nikon, the company that started as a premium manufacturer of professional photographic equipment and expanded its range with equipment for the amateur snap-shooter that was the name of that species of photographers.
I just have to have it. Just a frame, as for example very old cameras the original Leicaor when using cameras in diving where you can’t look through the camera. This made it posible puhs the software to correct the image, and for the lens type to be read lekca the EXIF file. The argument for a short list of necessary features is a clear profile with optimized characteristics.
M-body evolution in chronological order: Similar information is equally available for Leica reflex cameras and the corresponding R-mount lenses. Canon on the other hand followed the opposite road. Nothing as capricious as the human mind and the bandwagon effect. Personal fights are not allowed on this forum.

But the high performance demands a production technology with extremely narrow tolerances. Elmar Refers to the maximum lens aperture – here f3.
Some of these lenses are repeated in the R-lens section below for clarifying purposes. The bloated feature list did away with this potential advantage. Some journalists already predict the end of the traditional mirrorbox as the main design component of the system camera professional or amateur. Next step, I made a 24×30 inch print of the ptus. Silver-halide black-and-white emulsions are often praised for their tonal range, not only the contrast range, but in particular the fine steps in the range, the tonal gradation.
In fact we only have one single pleasure centre in the brain. You can find an overview of the evolution of Leica M rangefindersas well as a compendium of M-mount lenses on separate pages on this site.
In nobody did take the digital technology serious and film emulsions, especially slide films, were continually improved.
The display screen has been replaced by a ISO dial, made of the same stainless steel. What most buyers of digital M cameras forget or do not know about is the fact that the capacitors and transistors that constitute the bulk of modern electronic circuits all leak energy and these leaks may interfere with the proper functioning of the circuitry.
In the days of silver halide capture and chemical processing the technique was rather simple, but the mastering of the details of this technique was not. I am simply saying that the AgX process is different and more basic than digital and when using it, the core values of photography can be experienced more properly and then it is possible to transfer these values into the digital domain.

If we have to believe current insights in neurobiology and psychology and why shouldn’t we? Here is my article and test photos of the Thambar Viewfinder a device on a camera showing the field of view of the lens. Therefore companies try to reduce cost by re-using as many components as possible. For the camera body, Leica could draw on the vast experience accumulated over generations, but for the digital parts new expertise had to be built up or hired. Sensitivity is nice again, but what increased photographic opportunities do you get when you can expose a scene at ISO No lens is absolutely free of flare and secondary reflections.
Leica photographers should take their responsibility and start using the tools, exploring the limits and try to accumulate experience and knowledge to extend the capabilities.

The speed and intensity of product announcements and product updates is costly and investments have to be recouped already at the start of a product cycle. Commercially the darkroom may be dead who wants to wait for more than a second to see and distribute his image? One of the reasons may be the almost insatiable yearning of the public to want to discuss the Next Thing or even better the Impossible-Next-Thing.
Please let these posts stand. Luxury products are recognizable because of five characteristics: The film emulsion by definition only produces raw images. And when we look at the average performance, the M system is only one of several options.

In the Netherlands there is a new initiative that encourages young photographers to take pictures of the old master photographers, made with the old cameras of those masters themselves. The idea behind the MM is to emulate the workflow of the classical slide film: This is simply the attitude of keeping up with the neighbors: Tradition, art and nature provide these anchor points.
