  1. I use this lens quite a bit. In my opinion it is one of the unsung heros of the Leica family. The only issue I have had is when I do not extend it properly and lock it. Of course its not as good then. But that is my error. The size is great and with the excellent high ISO of the M 10s the slower aperture is not an issue. I use it with the Macro Adaptor on occasion and find it is a delight.
  2. I am finding this thread interesting and amusing. Interesting because of the ingenuity of some of the solutions and amusing because on another thread on this forum people are talking about using very fine sandpaper to effect wear on the black paint M cameras so they show brassing. It's what once was called antique faking. In both cases I see the love of the Leica camera which we all share. I would ask both those who want the camera to show no use and those who want to fake lots of use - have you forgotten that this is but a tool created to record an image, not unlike a hoe is to chop up the s
  3. I meant Wealth not welsh... No insult meant for the good folk in Wales.
  4. Leica Store Miami- Very knowledgeable about all things Leica as well as being honest and rapid in shipping. Look at their used - recent tab. Often they have Q2s. I have bought several used toys and they were hard to tell from new. Talk to Josh or David. Good people. They also run the Red Dot Forum a welsh of information and real life reviews.
  5. I enjoy using my 21mm Elmarit on my M-10. I have found using the Visoflex (020) the most satisfactory method. Using Live View is also an option. The Visoflex is a handy product though expensive. I noticed that Leica Store Miami has a couple of used ones for sale on their site. I don't have a mono so I don't know if the image in the EVF is in color or not. You have an enviable kit! Enjoy it.

  6. Might I suggest that you rent a SL2 and adaptor and try it for yourself. It might be money well spent.
  7. I will put in my plug for Leica Store Miami. I have bought a used M-10, several used lenses, a new CL, a new SL2 from them as well as a few other toys. I have found the condition of the used equipment to be better than described and with a couple of lenses, I thought they had sent me a new one. The photos of the used equipment are of the actual piece of equipment being sold. They are not stock pictures. The people working there are most helpful and know Leica inside and out. They also run the Red Dot Forum which is a grand source of information. I have no affiliation with the store, just
  8. No, the SL2 and SL2 S are the same size large cameras. The CL is small.& compact which is its appeal. And the SL2 S isn't monochrome.
  9. I have toyed with getting an M10-Mono but it's very expensive and seems to be having some issues. I use an M-10, an SL2 and a CL with pleasure. I don't want a Q Mono because I don't want a one lens camera. So I thought how wonderful it would be to have a CL Monochrome. Cheaper than the M10M, able to use any lens I want, small, high quality - all the joys we love in the CL. So I have two questions: 1. Am I the only one interested? 2. Is it possible to make a Monochrome CL sensor? Thoughts are welcome! George
  10. Leica Store Miami has the Paul Smith CL and 18mm lens kit available. I wish I had bought one rather than the plain one that I did. They have a decent return policy, but I doubt you would want to return it. You will love it. LeicaStoreMiami.com Leica CL 'Edition Paul Smith' Limited to 900 sets worldwide $3,395
  11. I find the Visoflex useful for my 21 Elmarit and somewhat for the macro-elmar 90. But it's not a great piece of equipment. For what it's worth, Leica Miami has a (or just had) a used one. I'm not sure they are worth the full price.
  12. I also use the Leica M to L adapter. It is Leica quality and a thing of beauty. I could not get a black one, so it's a bit of silver on an otherwise all black set up. As for Arca Type plate I use a 40mm one from Breakthrough Photography which I bought at Leica Store Miami. It fits perfectly on my M 10 as well as on my SL2. It is snug and very nicely machined. I like it better than the other plates I have used.
  13. Yes, thanks, I have the non-electric version which is fine - almost. I wonder why Novoflex dropped the electronic version? It would seem to me that with two SL2 cameras available it would be sensible to reintroduce it.
  14. Is there an MC-21 type thing for Nikon lenses on SL2 that allow auto focus? I am getting a new SL2 tomorrow and have many Nikon lenses the I'd love to be able to use on the Leica. I have the Novoflex Nikon =Lmount adaptor which works on my CL, but doesn't allow any autofocus etc.
  15. I have no idea behind the reason for the price increase but it was high enough that today I ordered from Miami a new SL2. Perhaps I used as a justification that I "saved" $600. by getting it today... In any event it will be here by the weekend which is exciting. I'm not sure my wife think's I'm all that wise, but my dog does. I look forward to using it with my M lenses and my long Nikon ones.
