The volvo shot and subway shot are very nice.Is the Lx1 a fixed lens and body combo?

Here is question for the Leica users.Suppose I was wanting to trade gear and move to Digital Leica.My Budget is $3000 I figure i might be able to get a body and one lens.What combo would you recommend?

M8 or M8U and CV Ultron 35/1.7 or Summicron 40. The CV is out of production but you see them fairly often. Another choice which I've heard is good but haven't tried is the Zeiss Biogon 35/2. There's also the CV Skopar 35/2.5. Too slow for my taste in this FL range but it's the cheapest of that group. If you decide to go that way, PM me and I'll make you a good deal on one.

Hm....come to think of it, I haven't taken bench shot with M8u yet....
I'll do that this weekend.
But, those pictures from X1 look really amazing....


Here are few from this morning from Biogon 35/2.0 ...

Luka, you are going about this test in absolutely the wrong way. You are so good a photographer that your talent overwhelms whatever weaknesses the equipment might have. In order for a test like this to be conclusive, you need to entrust the camera to a fellow who has no talent at all, so that only the equipment's performance will shine through -or not-. As it happens, I happen to be just this sort of totally worthless fellow. I will send you my details so that you may ship me your X1. Postage prepaid, of course! And no need to thank me. This sort of selfless humility and dedication are, I must say, my trademark...

Zombii: I know, that's my attempt at a bribe so that he lets me stay in the thread.

Thanks Jim. Yes, the X1 has an ASP-C sized sensor (like the M8 but a more recent design) and a non-removable fixed 24mm / 2.8 Elmarit ASPH lens.

I'm afraid however that you have disqualified yourself by your great photos in the Zeiss thread.

Wow, what a difference a night makes!
Thanks Thrice! Nice shot! I have the black one, few scratches, perfect optics and 6 bit coded, so it is only about 18 months old. It was owned by a photographer doing regular trips to Afghanistan, and having a body guard while he getting his shots. Just wish this lens could speak.
Excellent photos Paul. The colours and rendering are amazing. The ZM 35/2 Biogon is an excellent lens, in a similar line with the ZE's.
I really the shots, fixedgearmike. Fantastic travel cam.
Luka, amazing shots!!! : I am with Philber on this one. You will make some amazing shots with the camera.
Maybe a suggestion Paul, would be great to include the X1's within the thread.

Thanks Charles and Daniel - and Paul for including the X1

Daniel: I knew about the different brands of sensors (Kodak/Sony), but I was not aware of the difference in crop and that the M8 had a CCD sensor. Thanks!

Test of longer exposures (30 seconds) from my balcony. Had they made the bottom of the X1 just a millimeter thicker, it would have fitted into a standard Arca-Swiss clamp.. but no. Fortunately however the camera is so light that you can just place it on the plate of the ballhead on the tripod..

Luka, Nice shots, and great travel cam!
I have always felt the best photography is done, with the camera that you have with you, and not wishing it instead.

Luka....wow.....wow! I will say these are the first great shots I am seeing from this camera. It seems that not many are using it. Is that because they are sold out or nobody wants to pay $2,000 for a 'P&S' type camera? I know....not a P&S......

I have been wanting a smaller pocket/jacket type camera and totally overlooked this one. May have to consider it

Here is another from the other evening with ZM 35 f/2 Biogon. Still learning how to PP files with M9, so any work flow comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks Ryan!

I think the reason is the price in comparison to comparable cameras (such as the GF1) in combination with its well documented shortcomings. The camera isn't very good at all - the sensor and the lens on the other hand are very good. I think many people are willing to give up a bit of image quality for usability and in that case the Panasonic, Olympus & Sony alternatives are better. If you on the other hand prioritize image quality, well, then you can learn to live with the faults of the camera as then it can make sense.

Charles: Great pictures! I really like that last portrait.

PSquared63: I love that second shot. Very nice rendering and good choice of light.
