I’ve always thought Leicas were cameras for snobs who wanted to show up. Yes, because how can you pay several thousands bucks for something that is so basic I said to myself (coming from the SLR world of perfection – and lately from the Fuji-X, AF high ISO little monsters)?? This until autumn of 2017, when I … More ONE YEAR WITH THE AMAZING LEICA M8
Dear friends, It has been a long time! Hope you all are doing fine. I would like to share with you a few photos and some rich photographic experiences I have made throughout 2017.

I have been lent a Sigma SD Quattro + Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art by Sigma. Thank you, Christian! These are niche products not to put in anyone’s hands. These cameras can truly do wonders as long as you know their strengths and weaknesses. Just keep in mind these are no mainstream tools. But that’s also … More FOVEONING – SIGMA SD QUATTRO IMPRESSIONS
The Canon EF 135mm f/2 L USM is an unique lens. If you are looking for very shallow depth of field and being able to shoot at a distance (for example that the subject is distant 10-15 metres from the camera) with a smooth creamy bokeh, this is THE lens you need! Period. This is … More CANON EF 135L, KING OF L

To be perfectly honest, I did not try all of them! But…I am in the photography since long enough to recognize what is good. At the beginning of my love story with the X-system, there was a X100. Although I liked the concept very much, I was missing having the choice of changing focal length. … More MY FAVOURITE XF LENS?
The Fuji X sensor produces images of outstanding quality. It is a great performer in low light and high ISO. Images are clean and almost noiseless up to 3200 ISO; they are so clean that sometimes I add some noise in Lightroom for a moody aspect and character. Some of my fellow photographers use sensibility up … More NIGHT AND X – A LOVE STORY
