  1. Finally winter has come to Stockholm after an exceptionally warm christmas and new year. The sun was shining and I took the SL for a walk. With thermo-glowed there was no problem operating the SL. I now appreciate the placement and heft of the on-off lever being an on-offer. The other buttons were also workable. Thankful for their size. And my hands kept warm. I did not take any precautions with the battery. It was not fully charged and I did not hold the hand-grip to keep it warm. The camera hung on the strap around my neck. And the SL did function as usual. No temperature related problems during 90 minutes in the cold. (As the M does at these temperatures apart from thermo-glove usability issue.) /Eric
  2. Hi, I came across this blog post about the SL in cold conditions and I thought it was a nice read, very encouraging indeed. http://scenictraverse.com/blog/2016/1/26/review-how-does-the-leica-sl-like-the-cold
  3. Although I've been considering the SL, I've been put back by the realization that it seems that focusing M lenses on the SL will not be a straight forward action. Based on what I read in Reid Reviews (and another source I don't now recall), since the M lenses are designed for a mechanical finder, and not for focusing Through The Lens, they lack auto aperture stop down (AASD - which is what every SLR has, as well as the native lenses for the SL). So the implication seems to be that in order to focus well an M lenses, you will need have your lens wide open to focus and then re-adjust aperture as desired prior to pressing the shutter. I'm attaching a brief screen capture that helps explain my concern in a more articula way. Is anyone out there using M lenses and is this in fact necessary? I don't have the experience, but would seem to be a cumbersome task to do for every shot made, making me feel it will only work for very 'still' kind of image making. Any thoughts? I would really appreciate 'real life' feedback. Thanks so much. m.
  4. I have owned a Leica camera since the introduction of the M9, and since then, each and every iteration of the M series, excluding limited editions. In late October, I purchased the SL, along with the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90. Initially, I shot solely with the Vario-Elmarit on the SL, but I soon got the urge to try my assortment of M lenses, and so I purchased the Leica M-Adapter T, and began using primarily the 50 Lux and the 90 Cron, on the SL. Although I have become fairly adept at rangefinder focusing, the EVF focusing experience with the SL was truly amazing. Focus magnification and focus peaking made focusing with the M lenses, especially the longer lenses, quick, easy, and accurate - or so I thought. While shooting with the SL/Ms, it seemed that I was hitting focus with amazing consistency, that is until l reviewed them on the LCD and zoomed in to check focus. It was just not right. Same thing when I viewed them in Lightroom - very much out of focus. Therefore, I started questioning my shooting skills, but knowing that as a left-eye shooter I am pretty good at shooting hand-held, I felt that something else was wrong. So, last night, I set up a quick test using the same two lenses, the 50 Lux and the 90 Cron, on the SL and M240. I stood an open book on my dining table, and then, in turn, shot with the SL and M240 rested on the table top. My suspicions were confirmed: focus is way off with both adapted M lenses on the SL, while spot on with the M240. I did not take the time to determine if the SL is back- or front-focusing, but it is definitely not focusing as indicated in the EVF. I called B&H, and they offered a replacement without explanation, even though I am considerably beyond the 30-day exchange period. Is it the camera, or the adapter? Soon to be determined. Is mine an isolated case, or has anyone else experienced this issue?
  5. I would know how this particular lens behaves with the SL. Is there a profile available for correcting the geometric distortions? Thanks, Manolo
  6. Hi everyone, First post so pls allow me to say Hi! I have been reading this form on and off for over a year and have learned lots from it. My photography history is film OM10 thru range of Nikons to F5. Then kids came along and downsized to small easy to carry compacts. Back to proper cameras with Fujis: X100 - slow so switched to X100s; XPro1 (too slow for me); and XT1 with 5 or 6 Fuji lenses. The Fuji kit has been good and has delivered some good images but although well made they feel a bit toy-like. My Leica interest has been there for years. I used to long for an M6 in the days when I couldn't afford one! I nearly bought an M240 last year but - with the greatest respect to range finder lovers - I found that RF is not for me. I need to see the image I am taking. Looked closely at the Q but don't want a compact and don't want to be limited to 28mm. I went to the UK Photography Show at the NEC last wk end and played with Ms, Q and .....the SL. I had played with all of them previously at the Leica boutique in Mayfair. My impressions were that the M is a beautiful design but not for me. The Q....despite attending a demo class....still the same - too limiting for me. I had written off the SL due to size but I tried one with an M lens......WOW!! Size and weight were fine = the perfect easy carry when needed. So so I came home last wk end decided to buy the SL. I have since read lots on here which has helped inform me. Would like some help pls: 1. To get the most from the SL, I think I need to get the 24-90..... My last big camera was the Nikon F5 with an 80-200 f2.8 and that was a weight so SL and lens are fine. Any feedback from those that have carried it all day? 2. Been looking at which 50mm M lens to add for when I want the smaller size and lower weight. Am reading lots on here between the lux, APO and Noctilux. I can see that the lux and APO will both be smaller than the noc. Wondering if anyone else been in same situation? Thanks all John
