I agree with you about the MF Handgrip M’s straight back cable and USB port location. May I suggest TetherTools TetherPro Mini B USB Right Angle Cable Adapter (Item #: CU5462RT). This angled adapter is designed to extend to the left side of the MF Handgrip M. I have also seen USB Micro-B Male Right Angle…

I did receive a replacement multifunction Grip from Josh at Miami Leica. The replacement grip works perfectly, and I have used the tethering function for a number…[Read more]
I purchased the almost-new 21 Biogon shown earlier in this thread from David a few month back. Although I’ve never shot with any Leica super wides, I can say the Biogon is the sharpest, lowest distortion wide lens I’ve ever used. A great piece of glass at a very great price!

Talk about a niche product offering! Maybe the television manufacturers will take a hint from Leica 🙂 No offense intended towards Leica; just took delivery of my first M9, the 35 1.4 and the 75 2.5.
The system is everything I expected, and I am making money using it, which was my intent. I had agonized over the thought of waiting until 5-10…[Read more]
I’ve found the updated LR4 develop module to be a fantastic upgrade from LR3, and I use it if I have a small number of image files to process. I’m thrilled with the updated capabilities.
IF I have a large commercial job to run (200 to 1000+ files) that requires minimal adjustments where I can ignore the develop module, I revert…[Read more]
