  1. Past hour
  2. Danke. Ja, die Stadt ist sicher eine Reise wert. Ich war 1969 zum letzten Mal dort, schon etwas voellig anderes heute. Kombiniert mit Dresden (für neun Euro) ergibt das einen schönen Ausflug.
  3. Cool. I had read the announcement of the X Pro ii L trigger, but wasn’t aware they would be releasing Leica compatible flashes as well.
  4. Saw this bison getting a drink at a stream. It became clear it also wanted to cross the stream.
  5. @intermediaticYou may have missed my follow-up comment: Further update: despite Don Goldberg's recommendation, I didn't have any success getting the camera to read the Gaia paint-coded Leica flange. Removed the paint with a toothpick and went back to the Uni Posca paint pens which worked. Try using something else other than the Gaia paint to code the flange. Erik
  6. You're a good sport Al. That weed does grow a flower so it's a pretty weed.
  7. I followed @egrossman's advice, buying the Gaia paint and the applicators. I have an old M-Coding kit (lucky me!) that I hadn't used since I got it since pens—including Sharpies—just don't last long enough to get the lens on and off once. It's a big ugly mess on there, but the three CV lenses I have are being read by my M10M and my M11. I coded the lenses as follows. Voigtlander 35mm 2 APO-Lanthar=Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH 11879 (I guess I should code as the 35mm APO-Summicron-M 35mm APO, but what is the code for that?) Voigtlander 75mm 1.8 Heliar Classic=Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5 11645 Voigtlander 50mm 1.5 Heliar Classic=Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH 11891 The M10M reads the last one correctly, but my M11 won't read it. I'm trying to recode it again, although if the other lenses are reading, I can just set it as the only active M non-coded lens and that will be fine. Other ideas welcome. Hope the paint holds up.
  8. Black and white you said m10m apo50
  9. Small bridge and big bridge. M9P with 90/2 APO-Summicron-M asph
  10. I had it and then sold it a year later. Biggest regret of my life.
  11. The M10M absolutely slays at higher iso's. It's wonderful to be able to shoot without hardly any penalty at 1600 and above. It's especially important if one wants to use longer lenses in a low lit situation and still have plenty of shutter speed and aperture. I generally have felt the whole high iso thing to be something of a crutch, but in the case of the M10 M it's actually like getting a whole new set of legs! Shot below, iso 12,500, 75mm.
  12. Today
  13. More news on the 12-24 zoom lens: OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED TODAY, 7/7/2022 - Internal zoom - 77mm filter mount adapter included!!! Awesome news. Not much stacking it seems but even one 77mm filter is great. The filter adapter doubles as a second, wider sun hood. - 15cm/5.9" close focus - 15 elements in 11 groups (2xASPH, 3xED) - 121.9 degrees maximum angle of view at 12mm and 84 degrees at 24mm - 497g/1.09 lb - very well controlled distortion (not a Zero-D unfortunately) - 10-point sunstars (5 blades in the aperture) Also the price has been announced - competitive $699 for Leica M mount. Other mirrorless options (Z, FE, RF): $649
  14. Deck guns of the IJN battleship Musashi. Photographed with the Leica TS 120mm APO Elmar S on a Leica SL2-S
  15. Why don't you get a subscription to Reid Reviews? It's a small price to pay and you can see comparison shots of many of the CV lenses vs Leica lenses, including on M10M. That said, the 35mm Voigtlander APO Lanthar is one of the best lenses available for Leica *period.*
  16. A large model of the USS Hornet configured for the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo with B 25 bombers on deck. This was photographed with the Leica SL2-S using the wonderful Leica TS-120mm Apo-Elmar S at the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum in Everett Washington
  17. 😌 Strange that I keep these oldies. As a note, the old M4-2 had a quick adjust/CLA by a friend, some months ago... the VF is clear and contrast has never been so nice, now this old horse is a real pleasure to use again (better ... smoother than newer M-As).
  18. In Spain I recommend using El Mar or El Marit. Pete.
  19. Das war mir schon klar. Aber deine genaue Beschreibung des Zustands in Asien treffen ja auch exakt die Zustände in Deutschland-Europa und vielleicht inzwischen auf der ganzen Welt zu. Das mit den Smartphones ist eh ein Phänomen. Hier sind wirklich alle Menschen gleich, zumindest wie wir/sie damit umgehen. Aber es gibt auch lustige Kuriositäten zu beobachten. Wenn drei ältere Damen, Gesamtalter zwischen 220-240 Jahren, sich köstlich mit ihren Smartphones beim Blümchen fotografieren amüsieren, da muss man schon schmunzeln und sich fragen: "Was machen die nur richtig um diesen Spass zu haben?" 😀 LG Bernd
