    It seems a little confusing to have this under the L mount systems grouping. I don't even own a Leica and think it should have a forum grouping on its own, away from L mount talk, as was the case at DPR. This would be a forum for M mount, Leica medium format, and cameras like the Q. Basically any Leica.

    The L mount systems forum should be a general forum for all L mount cameras (some Sigma, some Leica, some Panasonic).

    Thread title has been changed from Leica forum.

    It's partially my fault because I assumed all Leica's used the L mount system (an partially everyone else because the didn't tell me when I announced I was moving it to the L mount section :-) )

    But I am now getting conflicting messages as to what people want. There needs to be a definitive agreement from all concerned as to the structure of the sections and forums.

    So is it one forum called 'Leica' with all posts for all cameras in it?
    Is it a Leica L forum underneath L Mount and another one for all the rest?
    Do you want one forum for all or one for each sub-species of Leica camera?
    Something else?

    Discuss it amongst yourselves and let me know. Until I get the answer, anything I do will upset one or more of you and I want to minimise that.

    I have typed this before, but here it is again. There are several systems under Leica.

    Leica D-Lux cameras. (COMPACT)
    Leica V-Lux cameras, (Bridge, 1" sensor cameras)
    Leica X cameras (X1, X2, X 113 -A difunct APSC cameras)
    Leica Q cameras. (Q, Q-P, Q2, Q2M)
    Leica M cameras. (From the M8 to the M11 with MANY in between)

    None of the above has anything to do with L-mount.

    Leica T cameras (T, TL, TL2, CL) Those are APS L-mount.
    Leica SL and SL2 (L-mount full frame cameras)

    The easiest would be to have a Leica talk forum just as it is in DPR and another separate forum for L-mount related topics, which for example could be a post about a Panasonic camera and a Sigma lens, none Leica related.

    Ok ound this thread. I think there should be a general Leica forum. Leica Lmount threads will go there too. Even as an L mount user I seldom used that forum.

    Have a look here dprevived.com/t/will-there-be-a-dedicated-leica-forum/660/2/#post-6490 - and let us know there if you think the suggestions are OK

    That looks great! Thank you Alan, I just would remove an "x" besides the letter Q in the sub forum title.
