  1. Ralf, the summarit are very well made. I think this thread could be a comprehensive answer to you question.
  2. Andba, the best 90 is the one which best fits your rangefinder. All Leica 90 are very good or great if perfectly focused. A perfect match between camera and lens is by far more relevant than the type of lens. The perfect match is mainly a matter of luck and astrology. Try several different lenses and buy the one best matching your rangefinder.
  3. Depending on the kind of trip: M10 Elmarit 28 asph + APO Summicron 50 or SL2 + Elmarit 28 + SL 50 f2 + SL 90
  4. John, Having both the SL2 and the M10, I tried my M lenses on the SL2. comparing to other mirrorless, the SL2 is, by far, the best option for older SLR lenses and M lenses. The new Elmarit M 28 Asph and the APO Summicron M 50 are great on the SL2, but the focusing experience with wides is not the same as on the M cameras. While wide lenses are tricky to focus, the 90mm lenses are a pleasure. You easily nail focus on the eyes and image quality is gorgeous. Some older wide lenses designed for film cameras show some corner softness, nonetheless the corners are much better than on othe

    +1 The 35 and the 65 on a 47Mp sensor are the right choice. You will decide what’s right for you. I love the APO 90 SL, but I use the tiny Elmarit when I need a 28. Having only SL APO is neither mandatory, nor necessary 😉

    Hi Roy, welcome to the forum. You will love Leica cameras and lenses. The SL2 is really fantastic. I love mine.
  7. I do some motorsport shooting. Set the autofocus parameters accordingly. The SL2 is fantastic. when panning to follow cars in the box lane or on the finish line, the standard technique is prefocusing (also with Sony and Canon). take the Monza track: a GT3 on the finish line is close to 300km/h or 90 m/s. Just prefocus. In the pit lane, cars are slower, 60 km/h, but you are on the barrier between the lane and the track, so you are higher then the cars and you are too close. Again, just prefocus. another problem is the background: look around and you see a lot of structures,
  8. Touching it, one understands why it costs more than the Sigma sibling. Very similar to the Sigma, but not the same. Leica put some magic in it. Colors are true Leica. I agree with Jono Slack: this is a true Leica lens.
  9. Or a 28-70 f4. More compact and lighter
  10. New instructions, old firmware on the Italian website. https://it.leica-camera.com/Fotografia/Leica-SL/Obiettivi-SL/Download maybe something is arriving?
  11. True. One can make his own profile either with a dedicated software or tuning colors and saving the selection as a color profile. https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002862017-How-to-create-a-Custom-Camera-Profile- Nonetheless, the profile embedded into Apple software is quite good. I have no insight, but I suspect someone at Apple was a Leica geek. He or she put quite e bit of effort into making a profile for himself and then saved it into the application as a default. Fiction? Reality? Profiles embedded into all softwares always seem to be something unfinished
  12. IMHO, different softwares have slightly different camera profiles. The better the better profile, the easier the job in PP. So, yes, the best is the one you like the most, but they are not equal when you consider the quality of the camera profiles. Aperture 3, now discontinued, had the best camera profile for M9 and M8. Ten years ago it was surprisingly good at PP M9 files (bus average with other camera). Lightroom and C1 are both good, but most of the time foliage and skin tones are slightly off when PP M9 files. This is pretty weird, because these software do a great job
  13. Same lenses with M10. I suppose your Elmarit is the recent Asph, not the old pre-Asph.
  14. If you try once, you are addicted forever😉
  15. I heard it's coming, it's lighter and smaller than the 24/90, but I heared no mention about the manufacturer. Leica never made bad lenses, so I expect this one will be as good as the old R zooms were, whoever will be the manufacturer.
