'Problem' with the lens is that for pro wedding / portrait photographers it does'nt go down to 2.8 but in compensation it has a very good range. So its value second hand is always going to be a bit less than a 2.8 lens.

It depends what type of photographer you are and what situations it will be used in. But its still a very good price.

1950s actually, well many people like retro, its all taste.
In this case its not retro, it really is using the same rangefinder mechanism.
It is hand made, expensive and extremely accurate, probably contributing to around £2,000 of the cost.

Leica is certainly a mixture of hand made jewellery, workflow and results. The first two are important, as in why people buy an Omega over a Citizen watch ... Some people never would but its individual taste + means !!

In terms of the A7(r), if I said it was the best interchangeable camera ever made, no doubt I would be flamed, but it is IMHO


Edited by: "colonel" 19th Nov 2013

Not very stylish something that is stuck in the 1970's

The new Sony A7 and A7r is probably a better camera in every measureable way and has full compatibility with Leica lenses and cost a 3rd of this.

Same price at Wilkinson cameras anyway.

Not really fair to compare with random China/HK-based ebay sellers, though. Firstly, there's a chance of VAT/duty, secondly, based on experience, I'd estimate a ~20% chance that it won't turn up at all, and you'll end up going through the PayPal dispute process.

Extension tubes don't give you more length I'm afraid, they reduce the minimum focusing distance of a lens allowing you to increase the maximum magnification. If people are looking for more length then you should consider teleconverters, not extension tubes.

You will get similar performance, but the added bonus of 105mm at the telephoto end, almost doubling your current zoom capability.

You also get some nice sharpness across it's range

On the -ve side, you get barrel distortion at the wide end and pincushion at the zoom end. I've read plenty of mixed reviews, but mostly positive from the perspective of a regular amateur.

BUT for the price, there is nothing better for this range of zoom. as others have said, there are better zooms, but they are pricey or shorter, and I wanted longer, the 18-55 is too short for me.

I don't know of any hacks for Panasonic or Nikon.For compact cameras, the name 'Leica' (same for 'Rollei' and 'Minox') is used by mainly continental distributors to sell re-badged Panasonic and Fuji compact cameras under their label.

If you read tests on the varies continental web sites, you'll find there is no difference between the models, e.g.Leica or Panasonic equivalent.

If you believe you have a better camera, you might put more effort in taking your shots and end up with better photos/videos. This would be the real difference.



Thanks for this.

Your point is well made. In the Cola wars Pepsi used an NMR scanner to view subject brain activity. People's pleasure centre lit up when they saw the logo of their favorite brand, regardless of the cola they drank! Vision like taste is massively subjective so the 'Leica' (same for 'Rollei' and 'Minox') fans will "see" better photos and pay more for these "brands"

Agreed the mod scene for Nikon is embryonic (http://nikonhacker.com/), Its a shame that other manufacturers do not open up their cameras as the change allow more capabilties and sometime better quality: youtube.com/wat…ted. One nice feature of the Canon's is the custom firmware can be removed by taking the battery out to return to stock firmware. I'm sure Canon have benefitted in terms of sales due to Magic Lantern and other custom firmware.

The only hack I've seen on the Panasonic is for the GH1 with ptools. "With PTool, you can up the video bitrate of the GH1 from a pedestrian 20Mbit to 32MBit in AVCHD. If you opt for Motion JPEG (MJPEG), you can shoot at an astonishing 50 Mbit/sec at a full 1080p. " taken from wired.com/gad…re/

I've noticed the number of SLRs and bridge cameras that can shoot full HD has increased, to meet the demand. The 600D with kit lens 18-55 EFS IS II and "starter kit" is now £375 from a UK retailer in London inc VAT but delivery is £25!

There is some alternate firmware for Canon SLRs, I think some of the Panasonics and Nikon, Not sure if this model has other firmware.
Most of the firmware from the enthusiast seems to work well and add real value.

magiclantern.wikia.com/wik…iki
chdk.wikia.com/wik…HDK

Its worth noting that the resale value of the Leica should be more than the equivalent Panasonic, I'd expect this gap to become larger as the Camera gets old as Leica is perceived as a well made Germany Camera. Even though these roll of the same line and are flashed with different firmware and a red dot.

BTW the Lumix LX7 also available as a Leica might be worth a look at around 360-380 on Amazon.

There is a lot of choice now in this segment of the market.

Heat added as this is the best price I've seen for this Leica!

Why would you buy this over a D3200? Having real trouble deciding!



Main reasons would be:
Build quality
Built in AF motor for older AF lenses
Bigger brighter viewfinder

Image quality especially in low light will be better on the new D3200, plus a 24mp image allows for excellent cropping potential.

Body only - was on HUKD including that £50 cashback making it £385
I concur the D90 feels better and is semi-pro, but on the d5100 I couldn't resist the tilt screen, 1080p video and simply because its lighter and better low light condition pictures.

If it was like for like in price I would get D90, but since I got it at difference of £70-80 I could use that for another lense (af-s 50mm).
If I knew I was going into professional photography 100% i might of bought the D90, but then again if I was very sure I may have just stepped it up and got a D7000.
At the end of the day both D90 and D5100 are great, if you want that final icing on cake you'll need to look at specific user requirements to decide between the two. Portability and versatility are quite high on my list, 5100 topped that.

shlunk - I had a go on the 3100 not the 3200 but imo thats a very beginners camera, very limited settings and things to play (I even felt the 5100 was a little limiting compared to the d90, but acceptable imo)

My wife is starting a make-up business and I need to be able to shoot good facial images and also wedding / party / occasion shots. I have been told that the 50D is the right camera for this. Any thoughts? I would appreciate any useful advice. Thanks in advance.



The lens will make more of a difference than any consumer body that you buy. If you're new to dSLRs, I'd advise against diving into weddings for a *long* long while - after all it's one of several peoples' most important days, and there is a *lot* to get right. Even down to things like bringing at least 2 camera bodies, in case one malfunctions. Etc etc....

That's not to put you off starting out though - everyone has to start somewhere! Any recent dSLR - I'd say the 450D or above (and especially the 550D and onwards), would do absolutely everything you need for now. An external flash unit for facial shots and a good, wide aperture lens, like the 17-50mm Tamron f/2.8 or Canon 17-55mm if you can afford it, and you'll have the equipment to get some cracking pictures.

Hope that helps
