      • I just saw that the Leica fotos app had the notification for the update, I'm wondering if the update works through the app, I'll try next time…

    • Thanks for the feedback. We've updated the firmware file with the extra “_0” in the name to be correctly recognized by the camera. Not sure why Leica provided a file with the wrong name, but we've fixed it on the Red Dot Forum FTP server.

    • The M11 is an incredible and capable camera, no doubt there. But I lean on the SL2 for my landscape photography for few reasons. The SL2 and SL lenses are fully weather sealed. In many of the locations I go to, weather sealing is a must-have. The worst weather often makes for the best pictures, so not having to worry about the gear goes a long way to focusing on the task at hand. Secondly, the lenses of the SL system allow for greater creative flexibility and working speed. With three zooms, I cover everything from 16 to 280mm. Less lens changing amplifies the previous weather sealing point and being able to quickly move between wide and tele allows for more nimble shooting and precise composition. Lastly, the SL2 ergonomics and EVF are tough to beat for landscape. Six assignable custom buttons, extremely rapid operation handheld or tripod-mounted and an unrivalled EVF live view experience are perfectly suited to landscape photography. Multishot and IBIS also contribute to the overall SL2 advantage here as well. Hope this helps.

    • Understand your concerns. Ludwig is the internal codename of the camera. We host the firmware files since Leica has a bad habit of moving or removing the files. This allows our users to find and download older versions of firmware that Leica no longer provides access to.

  • Do you just shoot B&W? If so, I get the idea that the M11 shooting converted B&W may match, but not exceed the M10M. Therefore not a reason to change.
    I have a M10M and an M11. When I want to shoot B&W I use the M10M. Having a B&W camera helps me concentrate on structure rather than color. The issue for me will be if when the M11M comes out, if I…[Read more]

    • David,
      You certainly covered a lot of ground with the M11 in a short period of time! Thanks for the terrific review and beautiful images. As I often do with your reviews, I'll be coming back time and time again to re-read the information you have provided. As a side note, your images with the 18mm /3.8 APSH lens have put that one on my wish list – I hadn't really considered buying it before now.
      Best regards

    • (XX Mega Pixels) + (XX Bit)s + (XX Blendenstufen) = XX Millions PBB
      or in résumé XX MB 60 MB

      For M11
      60 MP + 14 Bits + 15 Blendenstufen

      See in German language
      mit einer Auflösung von 14 Bit erfasst und die Dynamik erreicht bis zu 15 Blendenstufen.

      with this code, MB instead of MP you give attention to a mix of resolution/Color depth/ Dynamic range . For the M11 you see that the sensor is giving more than 15 for dynamic range, which is new. BR jj
