Quintessential Portugal from the archives: A trip down memory lane in 15 images

12
It was not until 2016 that we discovered Portugal. If you live in the Europe or the United Kingdom, Portugal is right up there with Spain as a top holiday destination. But living here on the other side of the planet, it is not high up our list of ‘must visit’ places…

Review: Leica Super-Vario-Elmarit-SL 14-24 f/2.8 ASPH

21
It's really difficult to criticise this lens; it handles beautifully, looks great and produces wonderful images at all apertures, focal lengths and distances. Flare, chromatic aberrations and vignetting are all really well controlled. Not only that, but for a Leica lens, it's a real bargain... 

Review: Leica Summicron-M 28 f/2 close focus

6
The improvements in the new Leica 28 Summicron-M f/2 are significant, and very much in concert with the recent re-issues of the 35 and 50 Summicron lenses. This lens completes the remake of the 'holy trinity' of high-quality practical lenses for the Leica M...

Jonathan Slack reviews the Leica 21mm Super-APO-Summicron-SL — sixth in a unified range

12
It's been a long wait, principally due to difficulties sourcing materials as a result of the pandemic, but finally, here is the Leica 21mm Super-APO-Summicron-SL. I think we were all expecting the 24mm to be the sixth lens in the range (after the 90, 75, 50, 35, 28mm lenses), but perhaps 24mm has fallen out of favour. At any rate, here is the 21mm…

Kimberley: The Land of the White Toyota and the Leica Q2

12
The Kimberley is an extraordinary place. First, it is vast, at 432,517 km2. Second, it is a true wilderness and very little of it is habitable. There are only three towns of any size and the population of the whole region is no more than 55,000, of which 40% are First Nation people who live predominantly in remote settlements…

Leica M11-P Review: The camera with Contact Credentials

10
The Leica M11-P, announced last month, is the latest iteration of the customary “-P” version of the standard M digital. In June 2011, Leica brought us the M9-P, the first of these modern variants. It's now a tradition that the -P (said to be for “professional”) with its cosmetic and minor technical tweaks, follows on around 18 months after the base model. So it was with the M-P (Typ 240), the M10-P and now the M11-P...
