  1. The update required factory reset a couple of times when I changed lenses (option for changing f-stop disappeared) but now everything is working. I can't tell from the pdf manual how to actually see depth of field preview. Is that a partial press on the shutter?
  2. I use a elgato cam link and firmware 3 and have no problem streaming with autofocus for an hour on my Mac Pro.
  3. I would return a lens with that noise. My 50mm sl is almost silent.
  4. That looks seriously broken. It is hard to believe it is a card issue. I would replace the camera.
  5. Thank you for your answers. I was primarily interested in the contrast of the zoom in the wide angle range, as I understand its overall versatility as a one lens solution. For portraits, I probably wouldn't use it much anyway, as the maximum f stop is much worse than a prime. What I was hoping for was not so much MTF charts as actual comparative images where I could examine them to see if the differences were sufficient to warrant purchasing a series of prime lenses instead. I am actually pretty happy with the Summicron 50mm SL, 55mm Otus and 100 mm Zeiss Macro lenses; though I've considered purchasing the 90 mm SL for portraits. It sounds likely that the 35 mm prime would be more pleasing to me than the Zoom for moderate wide angle shots, even if the difference stopped down is not great.
  6. Thank you to those who have answered. What I have not found is some forum post or article that has pictures of the same scene with same f stop shot at 35mm between the zoom and prime lens that have not been post processed. It sounds like this has not been done and I would need to rent the two lenses to get the answer.
  7. You will probably need to add something as the lux is a more expensive lens.
  8. I am trying to decide between purchasing a 35 mm prime or 24-90 mm zoom for the SL2. Specifically, is there any substantial difference in microcontrast at f2.8 for 35 mm? I have a 50 mm summicron a 55 mm otus with adapter and a 100 mm Zeiss macro with adapter. I don't mind limiting range if the quality of images is actually visible. I have sold many lenses in the past that weren't quite sharp enough or lacked micro contrast. Unfortunately, I don't have the funds for both. Mostly I am interested in the 24-50 mm range but it wouldn't be bad to have autofocus for the telephoto range as well. Any opinions from people who have tried or owned both would be especially valuable. Thanks.
  9. LaTeX can create a beautiful book, but you definitely need to know what you are doing. (I have a book on Amazon done in LaTeX, with the Kindle version created in Flare) It is very unintuitive coming from any of the other DTP programs, but rock stable once you have set up all the parameters. It is really for longer books or math intensive projects where you want to use a set of rules to define placement of text and images (like Framemaker and MadCap Flare) or have complicated cross references and bibliographies. LaTeX is not good for color management, unlike InDesign or Quark. InDesign, like Quark or Pagemaker, is a paste up DTP - where you can put images anywhere you want, but it doesn't really use rule based positioning. I've published books with most of the major DTP programs over the years and would recommend InDesign in general for graphic intensive books and Affinity Publisher as a cheaper alternative (assuming you don't need Photoshop, Illustrator, etc and have not bought the Affinity alternatives). One thing to consider is multisourcing. You might want to create a Kindle or ePub version as well as a print version. LaTex is bad for that. InDesign is fair and Flare is better.
  10. Option for smaller DMG files would be good.
  11. I would love to see an adapter that automatically allowed IBIS as well as transferred lens and aperture data, but I doubt that is likely. Meanwhile, putting in lens data manually does improve the speed that I can shoot quite a bit.
  12. I stand corrected. Thank you. Zeiss 100mm Makkro Planar 1/60 sec trying to shake a bit. Will the lens revert to actual lens if you change it back to a Leica SL lens or do you need to put this lens data in each time?
  13. Donzo98: How are you assigning a lens profile? I don't get any option to do so. Stabilization is based on focal length of the lens. Maybe you are adding some setting that I am not, but I don't see any ability to shoot less than 1/focal length in seconds and get an ultra sharp image.
  14. It would be great if this were possible. From some of the photos I've taken, I don't think it does any stabilization.
