Hello, I am still evaluating if a SL is a good investment for my big collection of old R lenses. With the objects I photograph I use mainly the Macro and light Tele lenses: 60mm, 100mm, 135mm, 180mm I have almost not been using my all time favorite lens the 100mm/2.8 Apo Macro since 10 years (digital age) which I feel is a very big loss. The SL will be a fine investment if I can finally use this lens again for "daily work". So I am not interested to know how the latest AF equipment works (which I find too expensive and much too bulky for most work or for fun, probably because I prefer fixed length lenses). I am looking for people with experience (and maybe fun) to use the 90's R lenses (that not so long ago were regarded as top). I have invested much more into the R system than in M lenses, and I assume there must be many more people with the same problem. So I am looking for experiences with R-lenses with the SL, mainly for Macro use and for light Tele. If you can share your fotos even better. Imagine that you have a complete R collection, but little money to buy new equipment - so is the Leica SL worth the enormous price to reactivate the R system ? The 60, 100, 135 and 180 were the bread and butter lenses. Can they be that again with the Leica SL ? By the way, the Leica M 240 is definitely not worth the trouble (to put these R lenses in front of it) even if officially supported. Thanks for any responses.
