Leica M10 Hands On Review

Put simply, it was fun.  It made me think.  It made me want to work for the shot.  It’s a different way of shooting than using a zoom lens and 12fps autofocus.  I found myself focusing, composing, and waiting; anticipating the shot.  It was almost a zen-like experience.  It didn’t hurt that I was getting some nice images.  The M10 is unobtrusive.  It doesn’t stand out in a crowd, instead, it allows you to become part of the crowd.

What the Sony A7rII taught me about my 42MP Leica M 240

Yes, you read it correctly. I am writing about my 42MP Leica M 240, and, yes, I know that a Leica M 240 has a 24MP sensor.

What I discovered in the process was that I could use by Leica M at 42MP and achieve even better results.
