    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    18 months between models being significantly upgraded is a joke when your shelling out that much on a camera!! I foresee the S/H market being flooded with A7Riii's knocking the secondhand values of all sony's for six, I'm just glad I got out chasing features & megapixels and turned to the dark...

    Official Talk Leica thread

    Cracking lens with a modern style of rendering, very sharp, superb micro contrast, only just pipped by the modern Summicrons for sharpness. I still have mine even though I now have a Summicron 50mm. In short if you can't afford a "cron then you need the Zeiss. The only downsides are the 43mm...

    Are cameras and menus too complicated?

    It took me 3 days and several youtube video's to set up my Sony A7RIII via its plethora of menu's, it took me 10mins to set up my Leica M10 including the fast access menu for regularly used features. So yes they have gotten far too complicated.
