  1. Entrance pupil position for this lens? If anyone of you would know please let me know. I cannot find any info for it on Internet, thank you in advance,
  2. Good on you beewee. This is the most informative post regarding composite materials used in many industries. They even make aircraft bodies and wings out of this material.
  3. In a Hobby store you can get a small can (14mL e) Humbrol Enable Matt 34 White. Using tiniest of amount on tip of fine toothpick fill in missing paint, wait 10 minutes and wipe over with thinners – all very gently.
  4. Those who are using an extension tubes on M mount lenses to focus close (not necessary macro) would you please share you experiences. What extension sizes/ lens combination works best for you? Sample photos would be interesting too. Thank you.
  5. Well, there goes my plan to get a SL 2.0/50 Sumicron, thank you for all of your comments.
  6. The ring just protects/hides the thread when original lens hood is not being used as in my case. I will be using various size filters via step-up ring on this lens.
  7. Thank you for your information, I have sold my M 240 and for the last three years I have been using LS with 24-90 and a Leica M to L mount adapter (in some way I do miss M at times, perhaps when M11 arrives….).
  8. Thanking you so much, I have purchase the lens new, arrived yesterday; the ring had been hiding at the very bottom.

  10. Would someone who is using this lens help me with following: I have just purchased a Leica Elmarit M 2.8/28mm ASPH. (11 677). Would you please let me know if there is a ring to cover thread that the dedicated lens hood screws onto (I will not be using supplied lens hood) and its part number if known so I can order it. I have been unable to find any info on it. For clarity I am enclosing photos of the lens jpg691274 showing exposed thread that the lens hood screws onto, jpg1217512 is showing the thread covered by cover ring. Many thanks in advance.
  11. You can get hot shoe cover for a couple of dollars on ebay
  12. Personally I would like to see Tamron L mount lenses.
  13. Is that 3,780. AUD or USD that you are selling it for?
  14. I would contact your Leica dealer or distributer in your country to order one for you
  15. When I mount my new Panasonic S 4.0/70-200mm on SL in the Camera/Lens profiles it displays ‘Panasonic S 70-200 F4’, next line is ‘Optical Image Stabilization’, but both displays are grey out. Would members with the same setup let me know if your SL behaves same as my, thank you. Other then that I am very happy with this lens.
  16. This is a very pleasing report, I am picking up Panasonic 4.0/70-200mm lens tomorrow to compliment my SL and Leica 24-90 I guess next is to decide which teleconverter to get.
  17. After reading about someone misfortune of smashing top display and having it repaired for some considerable cost I have cut a 1.5mm thick Perspex to cover top display. Using thin double-sided 1mm wide tape along the edge stuck it over the display. Perhaps not most elegant, but look OK and certainly protects the display from possible disaster. Zero cost and about 30 minutes time to make it.
  18. An additional question regarding squeak on 24-90 after upgrade to F.W. V3.5. Has any one that uses 90-280 lens notices any similar problems? I have been planning to get this lens, but understandably I am hesitant now.
  19. Just a thought, what is your 24-90 lenses’ firmware? My one is ‘Installed Version 1.1’ I could not find on Leica website any info re. this issue or lens firmware downloads.
