Tonight, Jono Slack was kind enough to join me on the podcast despite being sleep-deprived and tired from travel to discuss the products unveiled at Leica's recent event in Berlin. In addition to attending the event, Jono has been using a prototype of the Leica M Monochrome, which he put through its paces during a recent trip to China. Jono was also given the new Leica X2 to tryout and spent some hands-on time with the new APO Summicron 50mm lens.
Jono has great insights into the new gear. I hope others enjoy our chat as much as I did.
You can listen to the 29-minute* episode here: http://media.seriouscompacts.com.s3....m/SCP-0006.mp3
*We originally planned to include our discussion in a single episode with a second discussion I recorded tonight with Armanius, Terry, and Bob, but given the length of that second discussion, I thought it would be better to keep them separate.
