  1. I've had my CL for a year now. That's a long time for me to keep a camera. It's been all over the place with me, and I've put together a nice little kit with the 23, 18-56 and 55-135 which work very nicely together indeed. I've written up my thoughts, plus also the pros and cons versus the M10 (which I sold after I bought the CL). Enjoy - lots of pics if you don't like reading 🙂 http://tobinators.com/blog/2018/11/gear-and-kit/leica-cl-lenses-1-year-on/
  2. Can anyone tell me the actual aperture setting at the various focal lengths for the CL zooms? I know the setting at the widest and the longest focal length, of course, but what about in between? Thanks!
  3. This is on the way between Durango and Ouray back in September. Leica CL w/18-56
  4. Leica bietet jetzt für 3.950 € ein Leica CL Street Kit an, das neben der Leica CL folgendes umfasst Leica Summicron-TL 1:2/23 ASPH. Handgriff Ledertragriemen zweiter Akku
  5. Hi all, I've done a bit of back-pedalling, looking for a similar question here, but having found none, I'm somewhat confident this hasn't been answered before. So, hopefully, some of you may be able to provide an answer. What I'm trying to achieve: Using the EVF, I'd like to be able to use my right thumb to touch the LCD and focus; ideally using Touch AF + Release mode. Naturally, I've tried setting the CL to Touch AF / Touch AF + Release, tried EVF-LCD Auto / Extended, but, of course, to no avail. Am I missing something or is Touch AF limited to LCD mode only?
  6. I used to use an M240 and an M9 before that, however I was finding that when on holiday with family and young children I just couldn't manual focus fast enough and kept missing moments, or missing focus, so I decided to switch to an SL with the 24-90mm to get the benefits of autofocus (and to save some lens swapping). I love the SL. The 24-90mm is so versatile that I've found to my surprise I don't even really use my old M lenses any more. In fact I think I'll be selling my M lenses. However, after a year with the SL, and taking it on holiday over the summer, I have one misgiving which is the weight. I switched from a shoulder strap to a hand strap which helped a lot, but even so I can't say I relish the thought of carrying it around all day when heading out on a trip. I was thinking that a CL might be a great compromise. I'd probably get the 18-56mm and the 35mm f/1.4 to start with, but only take one of those out with me. I'd have to sell the SL as I'd find it hard to justify having both, but I might keep the 24-90mm to try on the CL and just in case I regret the change in the future. The CL photos posted on this forum look fantastic, somewhat alleviating my worries about going down to an APS-C sensor. I'll miss being able to back-button focus, but I think I'll adapt. However I've read the forum posts saying that the SL (and the Q) really are a step up in quality compared to the CL, which makes me nervous. Has anyone else here downsized from the SL? Any regrets?
  7. I just purchased a CL (coming from a Nikon 35mm film system) and am looking for a good starting point for setting up profiles. I've seen reference to Jono's recommendations but for the life of me cannot locate the actual settings. Any suggestions here?
  8. Hey All! I just published a review of the Leica CL on my website, and shotkit.com http://www.romeobravophoto.com/leica-cl-review/ I'm really enjoying this little gem!
  9. Greetings! Anyone tried to use the little flash unique that comes with the Leica D-Lux 7 package on a Leica CL body? Would that be compatible? (just for fill flash purpose)
  10. My CL didn't switch automatically between LCD and EVF any more, so I sent it in. As it turned out, the eye-sensor had shifted. Given that the camera just returned from a trip through Tanzania in rather adverse conditions, it was not pristine to put it mildly when sent in and it had received a couple of shrewd knocks, so it came as no surprise that Leica refused guaranty. I did protest gently, but success could not be expected. Anyway, the estimate came to 375 Euro, which I of course accepted. However, just now, the camera was evidently opened up for repair and CS revised the cost to 135 Euro. I find that really honest and customer-friendly.
  11. Dear Leica-Enthusiasts, I have been shooting with the Leica CL since a few months now and always use M lenses with the Leica and Novoflex adapters. However, over these last months I have noticed that lens-adapter-camera combination is not completely rigid. I can now slightly rotate the mount back and forth. It does not seem to affect the IQ but I am worried that it might loosen even more. Has anyone had similar experiences? I will probably just send it in to Wetzlar... Mika
  12. Guten Abend, schon lange bin ich lesendes Mitglied im Forum. Ich bin 44 Jahre alt und fotografiere seit vielen Jahren Natur und Straße, vor allem Makro und Street und liebäugle seit langem mit einer Leica CL. Jetzt habe ich mich endlich durchgerungen und mich für das Sondermodell der Leica CL Bauhaus entschieden. Ich gebe zu, ich habe mich in dieses schlichte Design verliebt. Leider war ich wohl zu spät... überall ausverkauft. Kann mir aus dem Forum jemand helfen? Gibt es noch irgendwo eine Chance an ein Exemplar zu kommen? Ja ich weiß, die Edition ist nahezu gleich dem Originalmodell bis auf den Schriftzug und den Gurt... aber verliebt ist verliebt. Würde mich freuen wenn jemand etwas weiß. Vielen Dank vorab und schöne Grüße aus Bayern Nadine
  13. Brand new option for CL with firmware 3.1 : always ON touch focus. Such as found with the Q2. Is a total mess with the CL. The CL screen is to close to the palm. And it always registers new focus point at the far upper or lower right corners. Way worst than wandering focus point. It makes the CL almost unusable !
  14. Hey gang - wondering if anyone else out there is having the same issue I am presently facing in trying to enable some camera's capture assistance features on my Leica CL? I'm presently using Camera Firmware Version 2.2. Here's the items within the Capture Assistants section of the menu and a rundown of the functionality I 'have/don't have' for each: Grid Setup - Working, no issues here. Clipping - Does not display. Horizon - Does not display (this is the function that I'd really like to enable) Histogram - Does not display. Troubleshooting so far: Disabled then Enabled (and vice-versa) for each function. No dice, doesn't make a difference for the display of Clipping, Horizon, or Histogram. Only the Grid Setup functions as it should. I've looked for items elsewhere in the menu that might correspond to the functions that I can't get to work. Maybe something is cancelling out their functionality? Can't see anything though that might be the culprit? Is anyone else out there having this problem? This has only arisen after I updated to the most recent firmware (2.2). I can't quite remember though if the missing horizon/level gauge immediately went away directly after the firmware's installation.
  15. Is there any setting that would show what Leica CL User Profile is set to on the LCD screen rather than having to menu dive. Thank you. Cheers, Terry
  16. It's been a long time since I've posted. But here's a shot from a recent trip to Turkey. For this trip —six weeks in Europe, with stops in Poland, Spain, and Turkey— I left behind my M240 and decided to only travel with the CL and the 18-56mm lens (I also brought my Voigtlander f1.1 M lens, but I never put it on the CL). While my first thought was to just travel with the M240 —I go back and forth on the idea of selling the CL and the two lenses I have for it, the 18-56mm and the 55-135mm— I decided to see if I could live with just the CL. I definitely missed my M, but I have to say that I kind of liked having autofocus. Anyway, one night, my ladyfriend and I headed over to Sirkeci station to catch the Dervish show. Over my years of travel to Turkey, I've caught a dervish show at three different venues, and Sirkeci remains my favorite. Thanks for looking, Santiago
  17. Has anyone used Auto-ISO enough to note whether the CL exhibits a stock preference to either shutter speed or ISO speed, or is it so damn smart it automagically knows which you would wish to be quicker? For example, when moving from indoor to strong sunlight and back again, setting at ISO max 6400, with a shutter minimum of 1/60s in AP mode you might expect sharp images with manageable noise all the time, but is it truly pot luck shot to shot which variable the camera changes to correct exposure? Is it true to say the function produces consistent results with only a "short range" set, if so what have you found to be acceptable? Three question marks in one post, sorry about that.
  18. Hi all, I am retiring in two months from my long career as a nuclear engineer, and treated myself to some quality equipment to reconnect to my old love of photography. I bought my first camera, a Minolta XGM after I graduated from college in 1982. Used the heck out of that thing, but ultimately replaced it with the Minolta Maxim 7000. I loved the whole auto focus and auto film advance, lol, and even started a weekend wedding business and developed the film myself. Shooting weddings ultimately paid for all my gear, yee ha! But then I had kids, and I set my cameras down except for family photos. Fast forward to the digital age and I picked up a Nikon D7000, 2010 I think it was, and really enjoyed the whole world of 16 mp digital pictures, but I never really got the bug again like I had in the 80s. But now, faced with the eternal question of what the heck should I do in retirement, I decided to come back to pictures. So, in the past three weeks I bought the CL kit bundle with the TL 18mm lens (27mm equivalent), the TL 35 (52mm) and the TL 60mm macro (90mm equivalent). I am done buying lenses, at least for this year! I have used the 18mm the most, think DC cherry blossoms, its just so handy. I got the 60mm macro last week and have enjoyed the macro mode shooting spring flowers and the like with it, also did some portraits of family members that came out nicely. Just today I got the 35mm from the Leica store here in DC. So have not used it yet other than a couple of test shots in the store to be sure it was working. Why did I buy Leica? I thought about a lot of cameras, and nearly pulled the trigger on the Fuji GFX system. But the more I thought about it, I really wanted a small system I could carry everywhere. Even with all 3 lenses and the body, my bag contents only weigh 4 pounds. And if I decide to just roll with the 18mm, then I don't even need a bag... that is amazing! I plan to travel extensively in my retirement, so I valued light weight and image quality above everything else. I wanted auto focus and a good lens selection to boot. I thought about all the major APSC cameras out there, for the smaller size benefits, and compared many review sites and user comments in various forums. I held all the cameras in consideration in my hands before I plunked down my cash. For me, in my situation, the CL was the winning camera. I didn't care it wasn't the newest. I didn't care it wasn't the cheapest (LOL). I didn't care that video was rudimentary. All I cared about were the aesthetics of the Lecia CL system and the images I saw being generated with the CL on this forum and others. I have had no buyers remorse, except for some troublesome thoughts that I may need a video oriented camera to supplement the CL at some point, but that is a worry for another day. Take care all.
  19. Help! I changed the SD card in my CL. It felt a bit solid as I pushed, so tried to take it out again. No luck. It’s stuck. On the plus side, it is working. But that’s not really the point! Has this happened to anyone else? Easy solution possible?
  20. Hi, I'm interesting in new Ricoh GR III recently, and I just know that it has a so called "Snap Focus" mode, I wonder is there a way to let CL do that? I've tried setting the Right Wheel Button to Focus Mode and it's fine, but when I switched to AF and focus to shoot, then switched back to MF, I had to refocus the manual focus ring to the focus distance I was set. Is there a way to let CL remember my pre-setted focus distance when switch between AF and MF?
  21. Can anyone advise of a wide angle for the cl ? Via adapters?
  22. To minimize the changing of lenses, thinking of a "second CL body"... although from reading many other reviews and user comments, the CL could have some improvements... Thinking how long before Leica may come out with a new "CL-2" ... (somewhat like the "Q2" now replaced the "Q") ?
  23. Has anyone experimented with mounting the 28PC R lens on the CL with the R adapter? While the crop makes it say 42mm equivalent, would it also have extended shift due to the smaller sensor? I think it shifts some 12mm, and that might be pretty interesting.
  24. Hello everyone, I have just now added a Leica CL to my Leica SL kit, using R, M and L lenses. I used the "Search" function of the forum, but came up empty. The CL manual states that the camera accepts UHS-2 SD cards (as it must!) but does it actually use the increased throughput of the UHS-2 cards? Thanks in advance. Guy
  25. Presently I own the Leica M262, Q and CL. I've been wondering if I should pull the trigger and get an M10. But I'm not sure if there will be a significant difference with image quality, when comparing it against the Q and/or CL. I absolutely love the Q and haven't put much time into the CL - other than the lack of battery life I like. When I look at photos from others, I have to remember they are posting their very best images and most include some post work. I'm not a professional and I am new to the Leica family. Just hopeful to get a variety of feedback from those who might have different levels of experience and knowledge. Thank you
