  1. I didn't know the TL 35 1.4 could produce a swirly bokeh.
  2. justbananas: I haven't had a chance to fulling test it, but here're my first impression: The good...build is fine, not over-build hence not heavy, but not plasticky either. Image quality is good with nice details. Produce nice colors but doesn't de-throne the 35 in this regard. The not so good...I'm surprised to find the focusing on the slow side, slower than the 35 1.4 especially in dim light despite being a lighter lens. Sometimes it hunts a bit before settling. At minimum focuing distance or close to it, sometimes it missed the subject entirely and instead focused on the object b
  3. PDP: Your point is well taken. Thank you. For model shoot, I plan to continue using Sony A7RII with the 55. I like working closer to the model even if there's enough room in the studio.
  4. Never mind that. I posted that pic in another section of the forum. Sorry, my bad.
  5. I posted a picture of the Golden Gate here, but it disappeared. Not sure what happened. I'm reluctant to post it again if it was taken out by page admin. If this is the case, it'd be helpful for me to understand the reason. Thank you.
  6. I got into the CL just last month. I love the color science of this camera especially when paired with the TL 35 1.4.
  7. If you don't mind buying used, the main auction site seems to have them. Not in abundance, just a few but steadiliy. I just picked mine up from the site last month.
  8. Mine doesn't demonstrate any temperature issue even in the summer. I use it for stills only and it's my habit to turn off the camera unless I anticipate a shot.
  9. Many thanks for all your replies and samples. They have helped me decide on the TL60. I have ordered the lens from a Leica shop. Cheers.
  10. Jacek.PL: images from the SL90/2 do look very nice. Skin tone looks natural and beautiful. Thank you.
  11. LocalHero1953: Thank you! Both samples are wonderful. I went thru the decision between CL vs SL not long ago and decided that at this point, the CL would work better for me. The SL seems a wonderful camera / system that I got distracted but finally swung back to my original purpose of reducing the weight. The SL may be in my future. Jacek.PL: Thank you for the samples. I already have the TL35 and am loving it. It's such a wonderful lens, isn't it? SL90 definitely seems like a great lens for portraiture.
  12. Thank you both of you for your replies. meerec: I did research the SL lens and haven't heard anything but praise for the 75. However, I plan to use the CL as my travel kit and keep things light. justbananas: the TL 60 is expensive for me too. I'm buying a used copy so it'll help.
  13. Hello...I'm looking for a portrait lens with AF for my CL and would like to hear from you on your choice of lens. I already have a few M mount lens + not really want to carry the weight of the SL lens, this narrows down my choice to just 2 lens - the TL 60mm and the TL 55-135mm. Neither one is very fast, but I think they are adequate. The main purpose of this lens would be for non-studio portrait. I will double-duty the 60 as a macro lens, and the long zoom as a landscape lens when opportunity arises or when I seek a diversion. I searched this forum, flickr, etc, but didn't see discu
  14. lykaman...Here's one from Monterey. M7 with ZM 28 2.8 I think. Don't remember the film.
  15. Thanks colint544. Thank you for starting this thread. It was your photos that first got my attention. They are wonderful.
  16. I've got one kinda like that - not 'street' per se, but taken from the street. Taken with the M7 and a 50's I think. No longer have the camera.
  17. Thank you lambda. I love your pics btw, the mood, the theme...they're wonderful.
  18. Love this thread....Plenty of great photos and photographers. Here's my first humble contribution.
  19. Think you're right on the long line. From what I gathered, this lens has been unavailable for quite some time now. The focal lengths of this lens are must-have for me. A bit surprised that it blows the highlight quite a bit despite compensating and metering for it, especially when compared to the 35 which seems to do much better. Cheers.
  20. I've only had the CL for 3 weeks and only with 2 lens - the 35 and the 11-23. It's enough time to conclude that I love the 35 while I'm only lukewarm when it comes to the 11-23. Percentage-wise, I have many more keepers from the 35 and this despite being a wide shooter. I have not shot with the M lens on the CL enough to conclude.
  21. All Leica camera will now have a small built-in lens in the back of the camera for taking selfies.
