Purchased locally from OO for $5. It is accurate but takes long time to operate and attention is needed.

Replaced it with TwinMatte 208L by now.

Heres 2 from the other day, I went out to a job early specifically to shoot this street art on the way.

the "Public Transport Authority" has commissioned artists to paint some of their walls that typically get tagged and look terrible, with some artwork.
these typically don't get tagged, as the vandals respect the time and effort the artists have put in to the work, the end result is a nicer looking underpasses and train station walls.

this is a train line underpass, next to the Claremont Showgrounds in Western Australia

this one is a 9 frame Panorama, shot vertically, stitched and cropped a little

and this was as i was walking back to the car, and saw the skateboarder, so set up and grabbed a shot as he walked past the artwork.
to give a sense of scale to the artwork, the 2m high (6 foot) flood depth marker in this pic, can also be seen in the first pic, halfway along the far wall of the underpass.

I am amazed by the talents some street artists show, the skill they show wielding a spray can as their tool of choice (but i also realise that it is the medium with which they choose to express themselves, like i do with my photography, and its taken a lot of practice)

Had a play with the new Leica T tonight (dropped into my local camera shop, and the rep was there ahead of the launch party a bit later on)

for a camera i wasn't interested in, and was certain i would dislike, i am actually very impressed.

It is bigger than it looks in pictures - which was my first surprise

it feels nice in the hand, nice and solid feeling, with a good weight to it (like an M) although the corners are a little sharp - i would prefer to have a deeper chamfer cut the whole way round the top and bottom, rather than a fuss made over the 45min hand polishing process, but i didn't have any issues with the edges digging into me either

it is simple to use, the touch screen system make it pretty simple to interact with, although i do prefer buttons.

the click in strap is a cool feature, releasing it requires a pin tool (like you would use to release the simcard tray on an iPhone) which means it shouldn't release accidentally.
it will probably reduce the ability to add a 3rd party strap though, at least till someone builds some adapters, i didn't really like the straps options i saw though (all silicon, like a "live strong" bracelet)

i didn't get a chance to put a memory card in to take some pics home to look at, and i didn't get a chance to play with the visoflex either.

all in all, i quite like it, but i won't be buying one - i only recently got my M, and i do prefer the "proper" layout and feel of using the M (rangefinder, dedicated SS and Aperture dials, and real buttons that can be touched without looking)
if i were looking for Mirrorless/EVIL camera, it would certainly be on my list for a closer look.

Seriously?

What does the T do that other mirrorless cameras cannot do (and for vastly less money)? Except for the admittedly wonderful styling and build quality, how is the T better than an X-T1 or A7r? To my knowledge, we have no evidence that its better with rangefinder glass (though one might expect so). Perhaps for that use, its worth a look.

But $2000 for a 23/2 lens is madness; I don't care if Oskar Barnack's ghost personally licked each copy.

The M is priced right, because it does something no other camera can do, and it does it very, very well.

But the T is a "me too" camera if ever I saw one.

It feels right.

Looking at them practically, i would end up with an XT1 or OMD-EM1.


But i buy cameras with my heart as much as my mind, things like the way a camera feels or how its menu works are just as important to me as resolution/iso performance etc (providing the cameras i am comparing are similar in performance)

Its why i got an M
For the same money i could have bought a 1DX and a lens, or a 5D3 and a couple of lenses
Or even a G1X and an epic holiday.
I bought the M though, and its a camera that i actually love, something i havent felt when picking up a camera before.

(And its not that i have too much money, the M has required a lot of scrimping and saving, although work does issue me a pair of cameras, so i do have the luxury of being able to buy a camera i want to use, not one i need to do my job)

I'm lucky enough to feel that way about the 5D Mark III. I don't know how a DSLR could be more perfect.

Ohh come now, a X-T1 is about $1300, a Leica T $2300. It's not that much of a premium for build quality and design. It's no worse than your typical Apple premium. The Leica M though comes at a massive premium over a Sony A7, one which is hard to justify.
