    In addition to your comments I recently read an article that was from a company (I believe it was called I Fixit but I may be wrong about that) who took the entire MacBook Pro apart to determine its “fixability.”

    They discovered that much of the unit is glued in place and that the display is integral to the unit and if damaged the…[Read more]

They can’t even produce enough lenses to meet demand…the last thing they should be devoting resources to is something like a right angle finder, which will only appeal to a very small and specific set of users.

    Plus, they could have said that because of the backlogs for both S2 and M lenses that they simply did not have the resources to work on lower priority items such as the L Finder.

    Saying that the solution is to buy another system that has this accessory is a new high of arrogance, even for Leica. Germans are often misunderstood when they speak…[Read more]

    Well, as I said my only problem has been with the 120mm and that happened only twice. I was focusing close to infinity and the S2 just kept hunting.

    I think the best advice is to use Al’s method. Using the AF button on the back to get close then tweak seems like a pretty quick and reliable method.

    Anyway I am not knocking the AF of the…[Read more]

    I am not sure the horizon is tilted although at first glance it looks that way.
    I think that the fog (always there somewhere in Northern California) is creating the illusion of tilt. If you look carefully at the extreme edges it appears to me that both extreme points are at the same level. JMHO

    for the most part I find AF to be pretty good. Not in the Nikon class but pretty good. My 120mm sometimes gets into a hunt mode when focusing towards infinity but not always. Probably something I am doing wrong but we’ll see.

    The 70 and 180 seem to AF very good.
