Good photos you all, great to see the x series at work...and yes, for mountain scenes and hikes the small sizes and the light weight are ideal !

A couple from my X Typ 113

Hi everyone,
Adding a couple from my X (113). Still getting used to this camera, and its EVF. I'm a little bit frustrated that they never released a firmware update to help the slow focus speed (especially in dim environments), but I really like the image quality.

I used a cheap, wide angle adapter on this one:


Here's another showing you can get *relatively* close:


And one more, from an early, behind the scenes event I was working:

Lemalk,

Welcome and thanks for keeping this thread happening I love the X 113, and find the manual focus works really well in dim light with the magnification (focus assist) feature. Also the Summilux actually manually focuses like a real manual focus lens, rather than focus by wire.
Sometimes in situations where I need quick focus, I find a spot in advance and hold focus then shoot when the moment is right. There are some sacrifices with this like every camera but image quality, ease of processing the files and layout and feel of the X 113 have made it a keeper for me.

I never considered putting a wide adapter on the camera and your pic looks good!

David

Thank you very much for the welcome and the tips. As you mentioned, like any camera, the X takes some adjustments and getting 'used to.'
I appreciate it for what it is, then become slightly frustrated by it, then return to it since the images are just very, very, easy to work with (as you mentioned).

Cheers - and let's keep this thread going

Thank you Robert! Of course technically the X is still larger than the X1- X2 or X E, but yes still small and sensor-wise also if that was what you were referring to.

I was initially attracted to the X1 because the form factor and shape of the body reminded me of the Leica IIIa, c, f

Thank you Robert, for keeping the thread alive with a beautiful post!



I usually work with DNG but have had fun tweaking my JPEG engine on the X 113. This is ISO 1600 1000th @ f2

I had a Leica Q for a while last year. I sooo liked the immediacy of the focus and responsiveness but couldn't in the end get along with only a 28 mm FOV for the price. I took some images I really liked, but had a hard time seeing that wide. Here's one I like:

Hey Jeff,

I like the space/FOV in that one. I didn't click with the Q but more because of ergonomics. I actually stumbled on the X 113 when I went to try the Q and really liked it. I'd had an X1 earlier and loved that camera.

Thanks for posting

David

Artist Point at Mount Baker -Washington State



My intention heading to Mount Baker yesterday (a beautiful October Saturday afternoon) was to go up high on a fire road and then hike. Overrun by hikers and cars, we turned back and settled for the tried and true Artist's Point. I can't recall ever photographing at this spot before although I've been up many times in the area.

From the motorway, #2



A few days ago because of family reasons we had to make a short trip. Weather was not good but better than a few days before.

Sometimes when driving I see something interesting and ask my wife to take a photo...and sometimes she manages to make it as I desire

My small almost 8 years old Leica x1 is still a good companion when photography is not the main purpose of the trip.

That's fun to see Robert. I made this on the way home from picking up my X vario at Fed EX. Stopped at a light which just changed. Was hoping to catch the red. My girl friend was driving -safety first indeed! David

Is that a mill building, Dave? It resembles the one at Alley Spring, Missouri. Nice Image!

Hi, Rob!

Yes, thanks,, it is the old Starr's Mill south of Atlanta. A quick snap from two years ago. The X1 did a marvelous rendering as usual.

Thanks Robert. My decisive moment was supposed to feature two red ones but hey, the green worked okay

Great thread. @jpressman, I love the colors - the pop of the red hat, the pattern on the coat.

@DwF - that Mount Baker shot is awesome!

As mentioned earlier, I have been using wide angle converters to approximate 25-28mm FOV, but had been getting frustrated by the smudged corners and strange bokeh. Took the converter off and was surprised once again how crisp this 35mm lens is.

Converted in Lightroom

Nice lemalk!

The FOV of your X draws my attention to your subject in foreground where the weight of his large frame is on his left leg. It spotlights his patience in waiting for the two inside, where the guy on the right patiently waits for the guy on the left. That in turn moves my attention to the nice texture on the door and building, and back to the guy waiting. 35 seems perfect here.

Sometimes it's fun to use the on-board flash (here outside a brewery) which dials down nicely...wish I used it more.

Nice sentiment and photo Robert. Thanks for keeping this thread alive
I have been pretty busy lately so I have nothing too new but plan to get out with X Vario this weekend. Here is one from a few weeks back and with winds and clouds this morning, we are still fighting to feel spring here!
