  1. The problem is two fold. Firstly, you have Leica lenses selling at a premium compared to similar Japanese or China made lenses. Secondly, you have Leica fans making exaggerated claims about Leica performances. We need to find a middle ground.
  2. I have tried manual focusing on both the Lumix S Pro 70-200mm f4 and 50mm f1.4 and they both focus without much difficulty with the S1R. With the SL 24-90mm and SL 50mm f1.4 Summilux attached to S1R, due to focus by wire, manual focusing is not as easy as with the Lumix lenses. I found the EVF not reactive enough as I manually turn the focusing ring of the SL lenses.
  3. Recently, I had the opportunity to compare the Lumix 50mm f1.4 and the SL 50mm f1.4 Summilux over 2 days. Both lenses were attached to the Lumix S1R and where necessary, a tripod was used to minimise user error. I also chose electronic shutter over mechanical shutter to minimise any vibrations. Out of the various subjects taken with both lenses, I did find the Lumix lens to be more prone to β€œvibration” blur. This effect is, however, not evident in every photo and is something that I would not consider as detrimental to the final image. I reckon most folks will not even notice this or comp
  4. Thanks for your inputs, helged and caissa. Much appreciated. It would be good if I can delete my own post.
  5. Still no luck despite refreshing the page. I give up. Is there a way to delete unsuccessful post?
  6. This is only applicable for new lenses. Firmware upgrades may still be forthcoming for existing lenses to improve AF and other functionalities like lens IS. At least that is what I am hoping πŸ˜€
  7. Some bad news. I tested the MC-21 with the Canon MP-E 65mm Macro and it did not work at all. The aperture seems to be stuck at f99 😞 With the Canon 100mm Macro L IS, it seemed to work - AF and aperture control - but it underexposes by at least 1 stop when using flash in manual mode. Switching over to the Novoflex adapter, both lenses worked fine, even with flash. I think the firmware needs updating on the Sigma MC-21.
  8. I can now confirm that there is no drop in frame rate with the MC-21. I wished the lens IS could be activated just like the MC-11 ☹️
  9. That is strange because mine does not detect any M lens I mount on my S1R. Oh well, I guess I have to live with this handicap ☹️
  10. Arggghhhh! Can't post because used up all my attachment allowance per post
  11. Same here. I will not buy the SL2 if it does not have IBIS. The IBIS of the S1/R is truly fantastic and is really helpful in getting sharp images in very low light situations. It is even better than the Sony a9 and a7RIII.
  12. I have yet to compare them side by side but I am not too worried of the Zeiss lens because by f2.8, vignetting is almost negligible. Both are very good performers. The Zeiss lens offers so much more for the money.
  13. Agree with Jeff above. The only reason for me to buy the Leica adapter is because I trust that Leica's adapter is made to exacting standards so that their M lenses will be perfectly aligned with the sensor. Well, at least that is what I am hoping for πŸ˜†
  14. Thanks for the honest feedback on this Panasonic zoom lens vs the Leica. Much appreciated.
