  1. Hi folks, I have a problem with my Leicaflex SL and I'd really appreciate some advice. When I bought it, I put in a Cris adapter with a 386 battery - the meter worked just fine for about 2 weeks, and then just stopped working. Since then, I've tried several fresh 386 batteries with the Cris adapter and no joy with the meter. A google search found some mentions of the Cris adapter not working well with the SL. I really like the option of having a meter in camera, so I'd be very grateful for a solution, based on your experience. Many thanks, Raj

  9. I noticed that my images when using for example 1/50 shutterspeed with a 50mm Noctilux or even a 50 Summilux result in not the sharpest results. Something which I never encountered with the M series and with Sony A7II (image stabilisation in camera). Now I tend to shoot my SL with a minimum shutter speed of 1/80. Which result in very sharp files... What are your experiences with SL and manual focus M lenses and the shutterspeed? Any best practices or tips are welcome!

  11. Hi guys, Three questions. 1) Bad quality in Play mode. Yes, I've searched in the archives and I've selected DNG+(L)JPG, but the image it's still very "pixelated" at mid iso settings, large green or red squares especially in shadows, like a VERY basic, low-res JPG quality. Of course when importing DNGs on the hard drive there is no problem at all, but I wonder if that's really normal...? Any setting could I have messed with? 2) Is there a fast way to return to the center after zooming in and moving the point around the frame? 3) Is there a way to put the Electronic Shutter "on/extended/off" setting in a shortcut key or at least in the Favourite menu? Thank you all S.
  12. Jetzt da Leica APO-Summicron-SL 1:2/75 ASPH. veröffentlich wurde, darf ich erste Erfahrungen veröffentlichen. Ich durfte es vorab schon einmal ausprobieren und bin schwer begeistert was hier Leica wieder vom Stapel gelassen hat. Meinen ersten Eindruck kann man hier nachlesen. https://norbertwindecker.blogspot.com/2018/01/erfahrungsbericht-test-review-leica-apo.html
  13. Hi all, Sometimes when I insert a battery into the charger, after a few moments both LEDs come up flashing rapidly. If I remove the battery and insert it again, all seems to work fine. Is it the battery or the charger? Does it happen sometimes, or it's better to investigate it further? Thank you S.
  14. Hello, Before I start breaking or bending something, is the old 22228 R-to-M adapter (ie. the one that was originally made for Leicina super8 camera) compatible with M-adapter-L? Thanks S.
  15. Being curious about the noctilux in special moments i went to hannover yesterday and took some pictures "just for the show" at f1.0, until yesterday i did not want to rely to this combination.... further more i used the 28mm Lux (see next picture)

  17. Hi folks, I was in the Leica store to check out the newly released SL Summicron 90 + 75 mm lenses; they are quite nice and handling is superb. I was asking the sales rep about the dimensions of the later to be released 50 and 35 mm lenses and he answered that they would basically share the same dimensions in order to have a "uniform user experience". For me, this is a little bit of a bummer, as I think that size does matter, also on a pro system. How come, that a 50 mm and 35 mm f2 are 10 x 7 cm large? I would much appreciate, if the lenses would be smaller (shorter), this would make the SL much more usable as a travel and street camera. Ideally, they could share the same 67 mm filter threat, but be much shorter, say 5 cm. What do others think?
  18. When shooting with my Leica SL, I often set my crop ratio to square for composition. I the past when I imported my DNG files into Photoshop CC I was able to work with the entire 6000 x 4000 file. And was under the impression that only the JPG was cropped to 1:1. Yesterday while importing some DNG files into Camera Raw CC Version 10.2 the 1:1 cropping was applied to the DNG even though my file shows 6000 x 4000 px. Has anyone got any advise on how to retrieve my full DNG file dimensions? I have found some Adobe plugin for Lightroom CC online to retrieve the crop edges, but do not use Lightroom and prefer Camera Raw for processing my images. Any help will be appreciated.
  19. Ok, I have a weird obscure question. I was looking through the Leica SL camera manual today, to answer a question that caused me to look at the viewfinder illustrations. ​I saw one that showed an icon that was identified as the "HDR progress bar"? I am not aware that the SL has any HDR functionality. I looked in the index and read briefly through the manual contents and couldn't find any discussion or explanation of HDR in the SL. Does anybody know about this?
  20. I am experiencing a problem with the 3.2 firmware update. It is showing up in both of my bodies that I have updated to 3.2. There is an automatic freeze-frame auto review after EVERY shot. It is the equivalent of shutter blackout as I can't see my subject for a split second while the auto review flashes in the EVF (and on the LCD) and I shoot action so this is a real problem. Is anyone experiencing this? I don't (and have never had) Auto Review on. It is OFF. I can't re-install the update because camera sees it as already installed. Please advise. Leica: if this is a bug, please correct ASAP, I am a working professional and am severely handicapped because of this. Many thanks.
  21. I have just received my new SL and I want to be sure about the slots for the storage media. This is my first post here so I apologize if I am not using the correct procedure. On page 171: changing the memory cards: Slot 1 (top) operates according to UHS II standards, slot 2 according to UHS I. On p294 the technical data states: SD, SDHC, SDXC cards both UHS I (slots 1 and 2) UHS II (slot 2) Can someone please tell me which is correct. Also, if there is a discrepancy, Leica should be notified. Is there a US contact for customer service or technical issues.

    Outtakes from first photos for a B&B Hotel
  23. Moin ! Ich möchte einen kleinen Abriss und ein paar Bilder einer kleinen Exkursion (bzw der Versuch einer solchen) zum Besten geben. Nach anstrengender Woche bin ich gestern pünktlichst fertig geworden, hatte als Abschluss noch einen Termin zur Neu- Eröffnung eines B&B Hotels wo jetzt (erstmalig für mich) einige meiner Bilder in den Zimmern hängen und wollte mich danach auf den Weg nach Berlin zum SL Workshop machen. Geplant war eine Anreise mit dem Zug via Wolfsburg Hbf. Dort pünktlich angekommen stelle ich fest: Der Zug hat Verspätung mindestens 90 Minuten (!), ab zum Info Schalter -> Stellwerk Probleme Dauer unklar, kein Zug rein oder raus Also ab zum Auto auf die A2 (Freitag nachmittags). Mit einem mulmigen Gefühl fahre ich los und freue mich über die überraschend günstige Verkehrslage (lt. Navi und Radio). Bis ich dann stand. Und zwar vor Wollin. Ich nehme Kontakt zum Veranstalter auf, ich solle mir keine Sorgen machen, dem Pförtner werde Bescheid gesagt, ich könne den firmeneigenen Parkplatz haben, habe ja noch 2 Stunden bis Beginn. Es wurde 17:00 und ich stand. Es wurde 18:00 und ich stand. Reger Kontakt (und auch Mitleid) mit dem Veranstalter. Man kommt ja auf blöde Ideen---> ich stehe auf der Leitplanke. Mache Fotos. Ich baue mein Stativ auf der Autobahn auf. Wenigstens die Stimmung einfangend (zugegeben, nicht wirklich anspruchsvoll). Es wurde 19:00 und ich bin 50m weiter gekommen. Weiter reger Kontakt mit dem Veranstalter, sehr sympatisch und nett, aber ich stand ja wieder. Es wurde 20:00 und es ging plötzlich weiter ... Ziel Ankunft 21:00 Berlin Joachimsthaler Str. Ende des Workshops 21:30... ich habe etwas zu Essen bekommen, nen KAffee nen netten Plausch. Workshop ohne mich. Kurzes GEspräch mit der Dame von Leica. Bedauern. Sehr sehr schade. Ein paar Impressionen (Eintracht Braunschweig spielte gestern in Berlin)
  24. I´ve been planing this excursion for weeks, every time i wanted to start something went wrong. But yesterday .... All pictures Leica SL and 28mm Lux or 24-90 (see exif data)
  25. The newly released Sigma 14mm f1.8 Art lens is discussed in several threads, but it might be convenient to gather info in one dedicated thread. The lens is available in Nikon and Canon mounts. As a guidance to new/potential buyers, here are some findings after playing with three copies of the lens, all in Nikon mounts. The testing has been tailored for night/star/northern light/etc. photography, i.e., with the deep sky as a major component of the image. In the following I only discuss sharpness across the image when the lenses are set wide open (f1.8) and at near infinity. Other optical qualities are, of course, of importance as well (aberration, astigmatism, coma, etc.), as well as other shooting conditions. As mentioned, three copies of the Sigma lens have been tested, all in Nikon mount, but I guess the results are transferable to Canon mounts as well. The tests are done with Nikon D5 and Leica SL, the latter with two Novoflex Nikon-to-Leica adapters (one manual and one electronic): (0) Yes, even infinity needs accurate focusing! Therefore, forget the infinity marking on the lens (as on most lenses). (1) Set the lens to manual focus; it appears that the focusing is less reliable when the lens is set to auto focus (despite auto focus is not activated by any camera buttons). Don't ask why and I can not prove it, this is a suspicion I have based on the testing. (2) Live view on Nikon D5, at full zoom, is only marginally able to guide correct infinity focus. Using a loupe on the back screen is recommended, possibly needed. (3) Live view on Leica SL, at 10x magnification, is much more accurate than the Nikon live view (nothing new here) and can be trusted regarding infinity focus. Thumbs up for the SL! (4) In my case, the manual Novoflex adapter gives even focus throughout most of the image. This is not the case for the electronic adapter; when the center of the image is in focus, the edges smear, and vice versa. So there are differences in the mount precision. This does not imply/prove that manual Novoflex adapters are more accurate than the electronic one, rather that differences between adapters can be expected. So for accurate infinity focus with non-SL lenses, testing of several adapters might be required (actually, I have two manual Novoflex adapters, with one being a `keeper', the other less so). So adapters can be tricky. (5) Irrespective of the FF body used (Nikon D5 or Leica SL), copies of the Sigma 14mm f1.8 ART at f1.8 show differences regarding edge/corner sharpness when the central part of the image is in focus. Vice versa, when the focus point is set near(er) to the corners, the central part of the image may turn soft. So some copies of the lens do not stand the task. Actually, the excellent SL EVF can be used to judge the lens sharpness across most of the image. Set the focus somewhere in the frame, and 'walk' around in the EVF to check the focus throughout the frame (note that we are talking about focus near infinity). (6) Of the three lenses tested on D5 and SL, the latter with the manual Novoflex adapter, one copy is fine - being sharp across the image with only weak softness in the outmost corners. The lens is sharper than the Nikon 14-25 f2.8G zoom, a highly regarded lens (despite the Sigma is shot at f1.8). One copy is perhaps acceptable, the third copy fails wrt edge/corner sharpness. (7) For all three copies of the lens, optimal sharpness across the image appears to be obtained when the focus is put about 1/3 off the centre of the image. (8) I find accurate, manual focussing somewhat tricky with the lens; very small rotation of the focus ring moves the focus point too far/quickly, so I would prefer a longer focus throw length (but I guess this might influence the lens' autofocus). In conclusion, the new Sigma can be fine, even used wide open at f1.8, but testing is needed... Used on the SL, testing of adapters are also needed... Images will follow after some shooting.
