    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    Hi Steven
    Well - I've not done any proper testing - they only arrived this morning, but the first impression is that they're absolutely wonderful - compact, beautifully made and optically fantastic . . . my wallet is quivering with anguish!

    yes Bart - it's a wonderful lens, but the 55-135 is also stellar quality, with real separation and great bokeh

    Ok, you've convinced me. I picked up a T with zoom, and now looking forward to the 11-35. The T will be a welcome companion to my M and S.

    Heavy handed processing. Reminds me of someone who posts on the Sony forum. Can't find any difference between a Canon DSLR image and a Leica image.

    Good question.
    And I think the Problem is that ist Kind of a new type/catogerie camera and many might not really know what it is:
    -is it a luxury article where the polish is more important than the Features?
    -does it handle like a phone or like a camera?
    -is it made for photographers?

    IMO Leica Marketing focused too much on the polished Body.
    After using the camera for some I believe one can not say it handles like a phone, I find the handling somewhere inbetween a phone and a camera, but very simple (the last phone which was that easy to control didnt even have a touscreen).

    Also many People compare Features (incl sensor size) vs Price and here the T probably can not score.
    On the other side I am sure many People oversee that the T:
    -offers a very attractive compromise between excellent IQ, lens Speed and size
    -has a very intuitive and simple user Interface, which is - IMO- not only made for i-phone Generation
    - is made for taking Images and can deliver excellent results.

    Personally I cant make up my mind between the T and the A72, even though technically the SOny offers a larger sensor and much more Features.
    Thats why-at the moment-I own both. (At least I finally sold my Canon DSLR Equipment)

    HI Vivek
    Do you mean me? I assume so. Whatever, I'll wear the cap with respect to the black and white dogs and landscapes, but there's very little processing in the colour shots - maybe you could be more explicit?

    HI Tom
    Good points all - I actually have the A7ii and the E-M1, and like you I can't find a way to get rid of any of them. One thing is for certain, the T has fantastic lenses, without exception, and they're also very small (even compared to µ43 lenses). The 11-23 in particular is a real stunner.

    Give me another T body with IBIS, weathersealing and faster AF, and I think the decision would suddenly become very easy. Here's hoping! I'd also like a built in EVF . . . but only because it doesn't fit so well in my favorite bag with it attached, there's no problem in using it and it does have a tilt function as well. To my mind the camera is fun and straightforward to use, and does encourage you to focus on the essentials of exposure and compensation without a plethora of unnecessary menu options.

    But how do you know? It certainly isn't big around here, but the T forum on LUF is quite busy. Let's face it, it's not designed for the check box mentality of most of the people who hang around in forums - but there are lots of other photographers, and it doesn't mean it isn't selling to them. (personally I have no idea!).

    all the best

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    The more I look at this camera and the images made from it, the more i like it. It's rather expensive, but it's a strong statement; design, build quality and image quality. What is missing are a few more primes, like a 21 or 24mm and an 85mm eqv., all f/2 to keep the size within limits. I wouldn't be able to afford it of course, but it would make my dreams even better

    Having some more experience with the A7II now I would sell the EM1 if I did not have that underwater housing for the EM1. EM1 is too similar to the A7II IMO.
    Regarding the T vs A7II ... for me the T has to few and the A7ii too many Buttons and functions.
    With the T I miss a way to move the Focus point to another Position without taking the camera away from my eye.
    I also find the wheels of the T turn to easy, and I don't like to have to smear the Dislpay with my finger if I want to review an image.
    Like you say IBIS would be great as well.
    But I still do like the IQ and simplicity and the feel of the T - though the A7II seems to be the more flexible camera to be. I also like that the continuous AF of the A7II seems really quite good.

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    I love the T! I picked it up at the factory back in September. I have not posted many images, because for me it is more like a sketchpad and for personal images. I generally post my "serious" images, rather than the ones I am just taking on a more ongoing basis. I do find the T a great camera to use though. I feel like it has 80-90% of the image quality of the M9, in a more compact, more modern body. Of course, it is much better at high ISO's. The only criticism I have is that I still feel like the 100% detail looks better from my CCD cameras (M9 and S)...there is something visibly different between the S files and the T beyond just the size...still, the S costs a bit more than the T, so I am not complaining!

    Since I have the S for anything where I need the best quality, the T allows me to have a camera that is extremely handy, while still having few compromises. When I travel abroad these days, I generally only bring the T. I only have the 23mm and the M adapter, but in practice I only use the M lenses for video. I use the T similarly to how I would use the iPhone camera...as a replacement if I don't have the heavy duty camera with me. It frees me up to leave the M9 and S or Hexar AF at home on trips abroad, and still be confident that the camera is good enough and nice enough to use that if I do actually have to take a "serious" image, I can do so without a major handicap.

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    As a owner of also the S system like you Stuart it leaves the question: where stays the M between those the T and the S? I now often use the T where I would have used the M in earlier times.

    It's a very good point. I am rarely using the M at the moment. If I had to photograph reportage or an event in good light, I would likely choose the M over the T. I still prefer the rangefinder and manual focus 35mm for that kind of work. The S is a bit conspicuous for the way I like to work in that context, while the T is still a bit fussier to fully control than the M. (I mean the M still does exactly what you tell it to, nothing more, nothing less. I find the T can be more difficult to manually control, both because of the interface and certain weird little bugs...the dials on mine sometimes do not respond or do not respond how I expect them to. It is not all the time, just occasionally, but enough that I generally just leave it on P unless I have something specific I need to change. I still prefer the M and S interfaces where buttons and wheels have clear and consistent functions, even if I assign them myself in the custom functions settings.) I do find the M a bit too heavy and bulky to carry with me all the time, however, which is the role that I am using the T for now.

    Jono, can you comment on the handling of the 55-135 zoom on the T?
    Maybe if you have a chance when you not out taking awesome images you could take a quick cell phone picture of the T and the 55-135 lens.

    Oh yeah, forgot to ask are you using a half case on the T? I ordered the Leica leather half case and didn't like it so returned it.

    Sine I live in a ski resort, the T gets cold very quickly so looking for some kind of half case. Any suggestions.

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    HI Steven
    I think it handles really well - it's pretty small for what it is, although it does extend a bit.



    I hear what you say about the T getting cold (-9C last week in Courcheval did make it hard to handle). But I don't have a solution for you I'm afraid.

    All the best

    Thanks for the pictures of the zoom on the T.

    Gorgeous picture from Courcheval outstanding.
    Were you skiing? If so how did you carry your T along?

    Hi Steven
    I have a LowPro slingshot (I think the small one). It'll take a camera and a couple of lenses, I hate it in every other situation, but it has the advantage that you can swing it round in front of you on a chair lift. This time I had a T with the 11-23 and the 55-135, and a D-Lux in the top of it - works fine - it'll also take two Ms with a lens on each.

    I was skiing indeed (if you can call what I do skiing ) . Emma is slightly less reckless than I am, so I stop and take snaps whilst she recedes into the distance, then I can catch up recklessly

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    ive used the T briefly on a demo day, its beautiful hunk of metal, but the edges are sharp and instantly noticable to me, a half leather case thing might fix the issue, (and cold) but then that kinda takes away from the looks

    the lack of physical controls is :\, the touch screen is nice in some ways but frustrating in others.

    kit lens surprised me, seems really good.

    style over substance on the body? i think so, its not super terrible, but when you think what could of been... :/

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    I put all my cameras this size into leather half cases anyway, except for the ones that the half cases either suck or don't exist. Nothing makes my hands happier with any small block of metal/plastic/etc than some grippy leather to handle it by. ;-)

    Using the T fluidly takes a bit of re-learning/accommodation to the new control paradigm. I spent a half hour playing with one—by the end of that it felt quite natural to me.

    That said, I'm not ready to buy into a T system yet and don't know whether I will be any time in the foreseeable future. I'm pretty happy with my current equipment.

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    I dont have any problem with the edges..maybe my sample did get a better polsih
    I have the grey leather halfcase but do use the T more often without.
    The UI works better than I expected. 90% I use auto-iso (which is very well designed) and shoot in A , one wheel f-stop, the other EXP comp.
    Works fine.

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    I don't have any problem with the edges either . . . I've used the T for 18 months without any form of protection . . .

    Here's a couple of shots with the 18-55 lens

    Re: Fun with the Leica T

    Hmm - well, Here I am again
    I really like the T (thank you Tom for reminding me)
    I've spent the last 6 months with Qs and Monochroms (all great) - but the T really is a fine camera, and with the new firmware it works pretty well too.
