Hi All SL-users! I have had my SL for some months and used mostly M-R lenses with the adapers and the 24-90 Zoom which covers most situations. The system is heavy, but once you get used to it, -you start wondering why not use lenses of your 645 cameras:)? I have the Contax 645 lenses and wonder if anyone has found suitable adapter to use these on the SL - even if the AF and some other functions might be lost? Some time back there were still companies which made tailor-made adapters, but I have learned that we are maybe past those times?;) However, there are individuals who are keen to solve problems and I remember someone making an AF-unit of Nikon's 16A-teleconverter, which was not that difficult after all... Even the Photokina exhibition might have revealed something on this front? So, -please, share any of your experience and of this topic? if there are any:)? br Hans
Leica lenses produce beautiful bokeh -- so much so that often the blurred backgrounds are what makes a photograph. I've most recently been thrilled with the 90-APO-R with Fuji 400x slide film, and the 50-summilux-M ASPH on Delta HP5, and the 135-Elmarit-R on anything! In addition to my Leica set-up I sometimes shoot a Mamiya 7; the 65mm and 150mm lenses produce the most pleasing blur. What about 645 systems? In particular, I recently acquired a Fuji GA645 (a MF point-and-shoot). Very harsh bokeh. What about the Pentax 645AF system? Thanks for sharing your experience. Dean Seattle, WA
