TechArt LM-EA9 For Leica M Mount Lenses is Being Teased

The TechArt LM-EA7 is one of my favorite AF adapters for M-mount lenses on Sony and it is finally being updated with the TechArt LM-EA9. The TechArt LM-EA7 also went by TechArt Pro and it was compatible with just about all M-mount lenses. It looks like the TechArt LM-EA9 is a bit more compact, which […]

A Tail of Two Cameras – Sony a7R and Leica M

Long-time readers know that I started blogging about photography at Leicarumors where I did reviews and attended meetings with Leica before diving into Fujifilm, Sony, and 43.
