Check out my latest review of the Leica M10-P. The biggest difference functionally between this mid-cycle body and the original M10 is the shutter dampening system and the touch screen. It's not worth the upgrade unless these two features are really important to you. It does point to the future of the M system though, and I think it's a great direction. Hopefully Leica will improve connectivity (wifi, Bluetooth) and perhaps a hybrid viewfinder like Fujifilm's X-Pro/X100 series. Even an optional external viewfinder would be welcome, although not ideal. Does anyone want video to return to the M body? I know most don't, but I wouldn't mind. I would love to try some crazy bokeh 50mm Noctilux video pull focus shots, although you can always adapt it to the Leica SL. Enjoy the video and the embedded pictures.

When I found out I had another work project in Hong Kong, I knew I would take 1 zoom as my standard lens (I typically take the XF10-24mm), and another lens to review. The XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR would be a perfect lens to test in Hong Kong, especially in conjunction with the super compact X-T30. Check out my thoughts on this lens.
