    z7 & 500 PF?

    Is anyone using these together? Seems like it would be a good setup for longer hikes.

    new-to-me toy! a7rIII

    Just arrived today from my usual pusher. Favorite feature so far? The menu option to change the direction the shutter speed dial turns! I couldn't re-program my brain after 30 years of Leica-R shutter speed dials.

    tell me about the FE 100-400 GM

    I've noticed that the FE 100-400 GM has decent MTF and is smaller and weighs less than my beloved Leica 280mm f/4 APO and I started thinking, which could be a bad thing for my piggy bank. Any user experience? I especially welcome comparisons with the 280 APO, experience with the 1.4x and 2x...

    another a7II to a7rII upgrade question

    I'm evaluating an a7rII to supplement and possibly replace my a7II and have found that the a7rII gives me more aliasing in fine feather detail than the a7II does, and I suspect it's due to the lack of an AA filter. Has anyone else encountered this? Any remedies?

    Please compare a7II, a7rII

    Aside from the MP and size of file differences i.e., the viewfinder: the a7II shimmers when a detailed subject is in focus, does the a7rII do the same? electronic shutter: the a7II is sufficiently responsive for my needs when the electronic first curtain is enabled but it fails at shutter...

    Please explain the purpose of the AA filter

    What's the point of an AA filter (on the a7II) if I get this?

    Looking for Leica-R APO

    Either 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R (backup while the primary its taking its biennial vacation in Allendale) or modular 400mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R. User condition is fine, I care more about optical and mechanical function. PM me please.
