    It’s a security thing.  You need to be signed out to log into a second device.  Esentialy it forces you to log in twice if you didn’t log out of your other device.  It happens to me all the time.  I’ll talk this over with our web team this week.  See Chris’s post above.

    Thanks, Peter for the detailed post.  I was brought up on Leica and loved the older cameras.  I even did the big Leica video for that other website.  It was great to see the dedication everyone at Leica has for their cameras and design.  Leica has never been the camera for the masses.  It knows its niche market and that for them is what counts.  The *2 is a nice camera but you did well pointing out the things missing and frustrations of working with it.  These days I am using the Fuji X100v and love it.  It has a tilting screen and a new very sharp and excellent lens.  Plus a lot of other features.

    The megapixels beat the Fuji for sure.  I also loved the Sony RX 1and it served me well on many occasions where I just wanted to have a camera that was convenient and it has some great features.

    You would think though that Leica could do a tilt screen and hybrid viewfinder like Fuji for the price.  The lack of ports and other things makes me scratch my head.  The images though are really nice.  I did a comparison of 11×17 images from the Fuji x100, sony Rx1, and Q2 and it was hard to see any noticeable difference at that size.  IMO that is where it matters.

    The bottom line: the cameras mentioned are all good and if they work for you then that is what counts.
