  1. Back then, at the end of R camera and lens production, we were promised a "new" R camera to replace that well-loved camera and its lenses. The SL can mount R lenses and it can help you focus a MF R lens with Live View and the joy stick enlargement. But mounting an R lens on an SL is only half of providing an equivalent R camera. The MF experience is a two-fold hand and eye operation: focusing the lens by hand AND using a split-field viewfinder to focus it. That latter step is not now available for the SL, but could be furnished very simply. In AF mode, the SL sensor gets light through the mounted AF lens, detects the degree of un-focus (the error signal), and issues commands to the lens's motor to focus it. With a MF lens attached, everything is the same except that the commands have no where to go and are not used. To me there is a simple way to use that degree of un-focus (the error signal) with a MF lens. Let it drive a computer- generated image of a split-field viewfinder. As the MF lens is focused by hand, in lieu of a motor, the state of focus would be displayed as if there was a real, split-field optical viewfinder in use. Thus the eye-hand manual focus of the R camera would be preserved in the SL, or other AF cameras that can mount a MF lens. Think about it this way: Simply replace the motor focusing an AF lens with a hand focusing a MF lens, guided by a synthetic computer-generated split-level display in the Electronic View Finder. With this bit of digital skullduggery, any AF camera with an EVF which can mount a MF lens can be used exactly like any MF camera with a split-field rangefinder. I hope Leica will provide this feature in the near future so that R lens fans can use their MF lenses with an SL body just the way they used them on an R camera body.
  2. Guten Abend zusammen Ich hätte mal bitte gerne einen guten Tipp. Mir ist es nun schon zweimal passiert, dass ich mit dem SL 16-35mm einen permanenten AF Flimmer habe, den ich nur durch manuelles Fokussieren beenden kann. Nachdem ich die Kamera wieder komplett zurückgesetzt habe, funktioniert auch wieder der Autofokus. Vermutlich habe ich durch meine Einstellungen die SL irgendwie verwirrt... interessant ist noch, dass dieser AF-Flimmer beim 24-90 nicht auftritt. Kann mir jemand dazu etwas Gescheites schreiben?

    Back button focus

    Is the metering lock the same as Back Button Focus like on a DSLR?? Can you use the thumb button to activate AF and then recompose and take the picture like you can on the Leica S Thanks Neil
  4. Hello fellow Leica Q owners I seem to be unable to use my Leica Q in AF mode. The MF sign is constant in the top right corner of the EVF/LCD and no matter what I choose in the Menu I am unable to activate AF. I am stuck and frustrated. User error or technical glitch? Any ideas welcome cheers William
  5. Hi all, I"m considering buying a Leica TL2 which I want to use to take photos in the same way that I do with my IPhone for street photography. That is, touch screen focus only and most of the time I use burst mode to be able to nail the shot in terms of people moving into the scene. Questions: 1. Is the quality of the LCD on the TL2 comparable to a smartphone (I'm using an Iphone 7 plus currently)? 2. Does the TL2 have a 'continuous shooting' option or only single shot? I couldn't find this in the specs. 3. Can you program the camera to choose the focus point and take the shot simultaneously by a single tap on the screen? Or do you have to tap on screen to choose focus point and then press shutter button? 4. Is the AF fast enough for street photography? 5. I would be buying this camera with the new pancake 18mm lens. Would I be able to get maximum depth of field with this combo, as with a smartphone? That is, I want everything to be completely and equally in focus from foreground to background. I do not want shallow depth of field. I have looked at other cameras (Sony, Fuji etc) but the larger LCD screen is the main attraction with this camera so that it is similar to an iphone experience but better image quality. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance. Parasko
  6. I've used my SL for several months now and I'm planning on photographing an upcoming 5K run. Since this will be my first time using the SL in "dynamic tracking" mode, I'm hoping someone could please give me advice as to the best AF settings. I'm assuming I need to select "Dynamic Tracking" (or would Face Detect work?). Beyond that, I'm not entirely clear from reading the manual as to the pros and cons of choosing "Point", "Field", or "Zone" when tracking a subject. For example, I use Point in static mode to get more precise control over the focus point, but if I choose "Point" to get a specific runner, will tracking be handed off to the other AF points if (when) he/she moves off of that AF point, or does only the individual AF point remain active? Similarly, if I choose "Zone", does the tracking get handed off to the remaining AF points if the object moves out of the selected "Zone"? Applying my experiences with Nikons, I think I should choose "Zone", but my internet searches haven't found anything explaining how things work with the SL. Any help in pointing me in the right direction on AF settings for dynamic tracking will be greatly appreciated!
  7. I just found something slightly annoying when using the 24-SFD (A-Mode) and the Q. I know, it is not the latest flash model, but however, it reasonable in size and I have it ... Problem: When I activate the flash and try to lock focus by pressing the shutter button half-way, the focus is instantly unlocked again (focus box becomes green for a split of a second and then white again). Now I can configure the Q to only focus when pressing the AF/AE lock button, but this configuration is not my preferred one in all circumstances. And yes, I can manually focus, too. Any thoughts on this or anything I am doing wrong? Thanks
  8. Hi I use my SL mostly, if not to say exclusively, for photography. Mostly portraits. I don't know much about video. So now we got a new horse and I want ocasionally make some short clips. My first attempts with AF were a failure, I don't know if it's me or the camera (I think it's me). So what AF-settings would you suggest to start with? The set are four horses, two all black (seems impossible to focus them in AFc without hunting AF) which should be captured in the movement. Any idea? thank you!
  9. Hello, I used a 90 mm f2 apo with Leica M adapter on the SL. Manual focus point defaults to the centre after every shot. Is this normal for this combo of lens + SL? I find it rather bothersome to move the focus point to the area (eyes) I need after framing the shot. If I focus first and then frame the shot, I will surely have soft images at f2. Anything I am doing wrong? Any suggestions? Thanks.
  10. The ability to autofocus Leica M lenses strikes me as a neat development. Has anyone used the Techart adapter for autofocus of Leica M lenses on the Sony A7-II, the main camera for which the adapter was developed? I'm especially curious about how the AF adapter performs with larger lenses and R lenses using an R-M adapter in addition to the AF Adapter. According to the Techart website, the motor in the adapter should be able to quickly autofocus lenses weighing up to 700 grams.
  11. Hallo, sitze gerade im Hotel in Südkorea, neben mir meine neue Q. Habe eine Sache festgestellt, auf die ich mir keinen Reim machne kann, vielleicht hat jemand sowas auch beobachtet: Visiere näheren Bildteil an (2-3m Abstand), nehme Druckpunkt am Auslöser, AF stellt scharf. Richte dann mein Bild im Sucher nach Wunsch ein (halte Druckpunkt). Beim Auslösen kommt es dann ab und an vor, dass der AF nochmal "nachzieht"! Kommt bei etwa 5-10% der so gemachten Aufnahmen vor. Höre das auch akustisch, habe es entsprechend eingestellt. Im dümmsten Fall liegt dann der Motivteil in der Ferne scharf, was ja nicht beabsichtigt war. AF-Messmethode 1 Punkt, AFs-Einstellung. Kein Szenenprograamm aktiviert. AF Hilfslicht ist aus. Belichtung Mehrfeld Das Phänomen tritt übrigens gelegentlich auch auf, wenn ich ganz normal in die Ferne fokussiere und mal kurz den Druckpunkt halte, um dann 1-2s später auszulösen. Auch da zieht der AF nochmals nach - sollte er doch eigentlich nicht, wenn ich den Druckpunkt genommen habe? Ansonsten: eine tolle Kamera. Konnte mich wegen Unfall vor dem Urlaub leider noch nicht so recht damit einarbeiten... Grüße Thomas
  12. I'm a little confused at this stage. Only because I haven't got enough experience with AF on SL, I have only received my 90-280 zoom this week and to-date been shooting with M lenses only in MF mode. To make things worse, I come from the Canon platform where it was working somewhat differently. What confuses me is the AFc vs AFs modes and then the Static vs Dynamic (Tracking) focusing. So I can set the camera to Static AF. But still I can set it up with AFc ... Or set it to Tracking and to AFc. There is a number of permutations on these settings. Do you have the same problem of getting your head around it?
