    Sometimes you don’t even have to leave the poolside to create art. Depending how you define art of course… Leica CL with 23 Summicron

  • La douce France with the Leica CL

    La douce France with the Leica CL

    You can spend hours and days in the picturesque villages of the Allier, a region slightly north of the massif centrale. It’s really a lovely area where the weather is good in September. I didn’t touch my camera a lot, but neither did I intend to. Instead, I caught up on reading, took a swim […]

  • Good deal on occasion Leica 23/2.0 Summicron

    Good deal on occasion Leica 23/2.0 Summicron

    Kamera Express has a temporary discount of 10% on all occasion cameras, lenses and other gear. I briefly looked at what they have in stock for Leica. The most interesting lens is an occasion Leica Summicron-TL 23/2.0 for 1079 euro. It seems that the front cap has been replaced with a non-original one, but that […]

  • A walk in the park with the Leica T and CL

    A walk in the park with the Leica T and CL

    The more I shoot with the Leica CL, the more I’m starting to love it. With my T (type 701) and the tiny 18 and 23mm lenses, plus a 50 Summicron M with the adapter, there’s a complete kit that is incredibly light and versatile. Of course I much prefer the CL to the T, […]

  • The Leica CL is such a nice camera in and around the house

    The Leica CL is such a nice camera in and around the house

    I try to make it a habit to take a camera anywhere I go. Last Christmas we visited our friends and when we left, one of our friends started to cuddle our big furry friend Dorus. I took my CL, which was in my jacket pocket and took a few shots. Although these are simple […]

    It’s been a while

    I’ve been busy with other things lately. To start with, I participated in the Rapha Festive 500 challenge, where I rode 556 km on my bike between Christmas and New Years Eve. Took some time for preparing. Also, December is always packed with last minute assignments and chores at home (paperwork, insurances, blablabla). Because I’ve […]

  • How good is the AFc on the Leica CL?

    How good is the AFc on the Leica CL?

    If you want to test your focusing skills, just bring a puppy. They’re agile and unpredictable. In this (very unscientific) test, I brought my little friend Dorus, the Rhodesian Ridgeback (4 months old). I set the Leica CL at continuous, single point AF (middle point) and high speed drive mode. The lens was the excellent […]

  • The Leica CL is impressively good

    The Leica CL is impressively good

    Two weeks ago we were in Sweden with my parents, brothers, sisters and the grandchildren. We don’t meet often as our family lives all across Europe. I knew my parents were looking forward to the reunion, so I had to bring a camera to take at least one group shot and lots of snapshots. For […]

  • The Leica CL is much better than some say

    The Leica CL is much better than some say

    If you’re into a new camera and the Leica CL has caught your eye, you’ll probably start reading reviews. If you prefer watching video reviews, the first review that will pop up is this one, made by The Camera Store TV. Unfortunately, this is also the worst and most biased review I’ve seen so far […]

  • The Leica CL is here

    The Leica CL is here

    Now that we know there’s no ‘mini-SL’ on the horizon, I decided to give the CL a spin when I visited the Leica Store in Amsterdam today. I was sold in less than 15 minutes. When you’re used to shoot with the SL, the CL simply IS a mini-SL. Yes, it’s not fullframe, but I […]
