During the time I had an M10-R a while back, one feature I thoroughly enjoyed was perspective correction. In fact, I had tried to source an M10-P this time around before I settled on an M10. Sometime between then and now, the SL2 was given that “power” in a firmware update. Just as with the other aspects of Leica’s image processing, its implementation is near perfection.
One L-mount lens that I held onto for a while after the CL bodies and TL lenses had been dispatched was the Lumix S 70-300mm, just in case Leica had decided to surprise its users with an updated L-mount body, whether full frame or APS-C. It eventually got ditched, with much reluctance.
Watching out for the Black Friday announcements on Sunday, I immediately clicked on one as soon as I saw that Panasonic had applied a nice discount. It’s due to arrive later this week, and will mark the first time in a couple of weeks that I’ve shot anything longer than 135mm. Its close-focusing capability is the drawing card for me, also having sufficient reach in case I encounter any small, confiding avian friends.
As I’ve finally become a 50mm shooter, next on the radar is a 28mm, which has been a “hole” between 21mm and 35mm so far: one too wide, the other too narrow at times. Getting there . . . slowly, but . . . slowly . . .
