  1. On a dull cold spring day this little gem arrived in the post; A Nickel 35mm f3.5 Elmar body in a chrome 11 o'clock focussing mount. No infinity catch. No visible serial number. The long focus stop screw looks nickel. The mounting flange is smaller than the camera body lens mount. I have read about that on the forum, but thought it only related to early interchangable 50mm Elmars. Both parts have a "O" for standardised. It couples with the camera rangefinder and the distence scale seems to match the rangefinded distence, the scale goes down to 2 feet. The focussing cam on the back of the lens shows machining marks and looks quite different from an ordinary pre-war 35mm Elmar that I have. Could it have been converted from an un-coupled model? Maybe an "unofficial" conversion using mismatched nickel and chrome parts, both early?

    For sale or possible trade an immaculate Leica WATE lens. Lens has been used twice and is like new comes with original box and padded pouch. Finder has never been used and also comes in original box and padded pouch. Also include is the specific filter holder for the WATE and a B&W polarising filter. Not a focal length I use so looking to move it on and try a film Leica body so willing to trade for Leica MP preferably but would consider others with cash either way depending on trade. I'm looking for £3250 for the package or close offers. Fees and shipping to be agreed. I'm based in West Yorkshire for viewings or possible meet.

  4. Hallo Freunde der analogen Fotografie, seit einer Weile fotografiere ich nun schon analog, erst mit einer Canon AE1 und jetzt mit einer Olympus OM1, da ich vollmechanische Kameras mehr mag, so kommt es auch, dass ich mir jetzt eine alte Leica zulegen will. Da mein Budget als Schüler begrenzt ist und ich Schraubleicas bald schöner als dass M-System finde, habe ich meine Suche auf die IIIF, IIIC und IIIG eingegrenzt, wobei die IIIG auch schon fast zu teuer ist. Dazu soll es noch ein schönes Elmar, Summitar oder sogar Summicron sein. Da ich Händlern generell mehr vertraue bin ich auf 2 Angebote gestoßen: Leica IIIC mit Summitar 50mm f/2 und Beli für 500€: https://www.meister-camera.com/de/gebraucht/5297/leica-iii-c Leica IIIF VLW mit Elmar 50mm f/2 für 445€: https://www.leica-store-muenchen.de/de/gebraucht/15166/leica-iiif-vlw-3550mm Ich weiß wirklich nicht, welches Angebot ich nehmen soll, da beide Kameras ziemlich gleich sind (Der Blitzanschluss der IIIF ist mir egal). Die IIIC hat halt noch einen Belichtungsmesser und das bessere Objektiv für Naturlichtfotografie, jedoch, hat Sie kein Rückgaberecht, der Zustand ist schlechter (das Chrome blättert ab), sie hat Selbstauslöser (eigentlich ein cooles Feature, was jedoch kein Muss ist) und ich habe von vielen gehört, dass es nur selten ist, dass man ein Summitar ohne Kratzer findet, da dass Glas sehr weich ist. Objektiv und Kamera sind beide von ca. 1949/50. Die IIIF hat an sich ein (licht-)schwächeres Objektiv (ist das ein großer Unterschied?), keinen Belichtungsmesser (welchen ich eigentlich nicht wirklich brauche, jedoch ist dieser ganz nett) und ist ein Umbau (was nicht unbedingt schlecht ist?). Jedoch hat der Body einen besseren Zustand, die Kamera hat ein Rückgaberecht und ist 50€ günstiger. Der Body ist auch so von 1949/50, von dem Objektiv kenne ich aber Jahr, was auch bedeuten könnte, dass es keine Vergütung hat. Ich gehe bei beiden Kameras davon aus, dass ich sie noch justieren lassen muss, dazu will ich sie für 120€ zu Oleg Khalyavin schicken, hat da jemand Erfahrung? Schon mal vielen Dank im Vorraus für eure Antworten! Max
  5. Hi, everyone! Please make me sure, that I'm correct, if I have these thoughts about this lens: - Changeable, but non-standardized (not interchangeable): - no "0" on the mount anywhere (as I know this is not a prove) - close focus to 0,5, that I can't use with my modded Leica II (I->II standardized), because it's uncoupled - below one meter the finder "jumps" - it has three digits serial number, as I know the last three digits from the body's serial, that ensures, that it can be used only with the body it was built for. (if it's true, 2307 pieces were made of this kind of Elmar 35mm) I gathered these information, and want to be sure, if they are correct. S o please help me, if you can! And one other question! If these things are true - is there any chance to find the body? Best regards! Jeremy
  6. Hello What kind of ring adapter do I need for M2 to match old uncoated version of nickel elmar 3.5 Pawel
  7. Hallo Ich habe ein Leitz Elmar 3,5 cm f 3,5 M39 mit einer 300000er Seriennummer von ca. 1936 in sehr guten Zustand. Es ist kein LTM Objektiv,eher ein Pancake. Bitte entschuldigt meine Ausdrucksweise.Ich habe von Leica oder Leitz Objektiven nur wenig Wissen. Leider ist etwas Dunst zwischen den Linsen. Ist es möglich dieses Objektiv selbst zu zerlegen? Gibt es eine Anleitung ,wie man das Objektiv zur Reinigung der Linsen zerlegen kann. Das Werkzeug dazu habe ich oder kann es besorgen. Für Hinweise wäre ich sehr dankbar. Ich habe schone viele Objektive gereinigt.Nur dieses ist mir zu heikel. Gruss Michael

    Elmar Portrait

    This was taken in March, 2016, with Sony a7ii camera on which was mounted a Leica 90mm Elmar f4 lens, from 1951. I'm going to keep this lens, it has the look I want.
  9. Hello everyone! Just recently I came upon a wonderful set of the Leica IIIC together with 3 (seemingly in mint condition) lenses. The SN of the camera itself is 374588 and the only information I could gather is that it was manufactured in 1940. More about the lenses - elmar 3,5 cm, summitar 5cm, SN 559993, thambar 9cm SN 540124. There are some more additional bits and bops in the set. I tried to make my own research but couldn't find much on the internet. Can any of you, professional Leica users/keen fans let me know more about the history of these items? I am more curious other than anything.
  10. Hello guys, my name is Mat, I'm from Argentina. About a year ago I started shooting street photography with a Fuji X100T and for the last few weeks I've been really wanting to try and buy an M3, so I did it. I bought one, in a trusty camera shop here in Buenos Aires, and it seemed to work well, film advance, all shutter speeds and rangefinder worked well so I had no doubt about it and went for it. After about 3 hours of leaving the store, I sat on a bench to load some film and try it, when I removed the bottom plate a big chunk of the vulcanite broke down and fell, didn't even mind about that because it's replaceable, so I started shooting, finished a roll and left it to be developed and scanned. When I got back home later that day, I was fiddling with it and put the shutter speed dial in 1 sec, fired the shutter and heard it open but never close back, instantly I called the guys at the shop and told them this two problems, they told me to bring the camera to them the next day and that they'd take care of the service charges. Today I left the camera on the shop and went to the lab for the scans and the negatives, when I got home I saw this: And this: Some photos had this "vignette"-like thing that looked like the photos were Extremely underexposed on one side/"correctly" exposed in the middle/overexposed on the other side, for example: AND, the few photos that looked "fine" had this weird black line on one side like this: This one has all of the problems at once: And there's this one that looks fine without any problems besides the shitty quality of the scan: I do not really know if the problem is part of this shutter curtains issue, or if it's the lens, by the way I'm using an Elmar 50mm 2.8, maybe I didn't extend it all the way it should be extended or it might be another problem, but please note that this is my first experience with an M camera and I still don't have the skills that the M call for. Thanks beforehand for any advice, they will be much appreciated! Sorry for the long post and for my bad english! Cheers. Mat.
  11. Looking to purchase a 24mm Elmar. Found a great deal on a new lens. Would like to hear from M240 and other M owners how they like it especially since it will be used primarily on a M240. Have heard that the new 3.8 is better then the last generation 2.8. The 3.8 has different characteristics and is a little more contrast to it.
  12. Hey everyone, Looking for a bit of friendly advice and opinion. I currently have a Leica M-A and like to stick to the "One Camera, One Lens" method of keeping my work consistent and always improving. When people talk about this, one lens usually refers to focal length, not exactly one lens. After lots of trial and error I learned that I see in 50mm, so I prefer using that focal length for all of my shooting. However, I currently own a 50mm Summicron-M and a 50mm Elmar-M (both newest versions, both brass chrome). I can't decide if I should sell one, and if so which one, or keep both. The summicron is quite a bit heavier than the Elmar, although I wouldn't classify either as light since they are both the chrome versions. The Elmar obviously have a size advantage, but the annoyance of uneven aperture settings and the collapsible function can sometimes get annoying as it doesn't lock collapsed and can just slide out if positioned in such a way. I'm having a hard time deciding if it makes sense to keep both, and if not, which one to keep. I currently justify ownership of both by saying the Elmar, while limited, is more suitable for when I'm not out specifically to be shooting, but walking to work or just running errands. The smaller size is nice when I'm not focused specifically on shooting. I'll use the Summicron when I'm going out to shoot, as its usability is substantially better, at the cost of its size and weight, but when I'm shooting the camera is in my hand and not really packed away or even hanging from my neck. Let me know your thoughts everyone, interested to hear some opinions on the subject of owning multiple lenses of the same focal length. Thank you!
  13. Hi to all interested in photographing with vintage screw mount Leica`s.

    Elmar

    This is using a 90mm Elmar f4 lens, from 1951 on a digital body. I managed to focus it, more by feel than by sight. I'm liking the lens a little more than I did initially. It does well in flat lighting, as shade, here.
  15. Hi, My Elmar 24mm had a rattling sound which was originating from the front ring of the lens, where the name and serial number is printed, see enclosed pic. The ring was glued with three dots of glue and this was not sufficient for holding it. Anyone else who have similar experience? I will send it to Leica Wetzlar for inspection. /Bapu
  16. Greeting Knowledgeable Gentlemen, I have a curious little accessory here. From the waist down, it's a normal lens hood fitting the 3.5cm & 5cm Summicron, Elmar, etc. Instead of a normal hood, however, it has a male 49mm thread on the front. It's marked "42" on the rear chrome surface that faces the camera. Please help!
  17. Hi I've done some searching (both in the forum and online in general) and still can't seem to figure out how to make this all work cohesively. I'm hoping someone can give me some simple instructions - I'm sure I'm just overlooking something. A few months ago, I bought the M Macro Adapter, thinking it would enable macro photography on all of my lenses. I honestly can't tell if it does - it's not at all like the macro experience I'm used to with my Nikon gear (where I can get a fly ball to fill up an entire frame). I play around with it every now and then and can get visibly closer than I can with anything else... but it's not very macro. So I was traveling recently and got an amazing deal on the collapsible Elmar 90 Macro kit - add in the tax refund and I felt morally obligated to buy it (that's the GAS speaking). It comes with the lens, the goggles, and a variable finder. Nice. So... to shoot macro - what pieces arm I supposed to be using ? Any basic guidance anyone could provide will be super appreciated ! Thanks
  18. This is going to be a bit of a newbie question as I am sure that folks on this forum probably hate the idea of mating a zoom to a rangefinder. I use a number of primes with my M and love them all but for the sake of occasional convenience and longer focal lengths I am considering an M-R adapter with possibly a Vario Elmar 70-210 or preferably the 80-200 (assuming I can find either). Does anyone have any experience of either of these two lenses on an M and are they any good? Is one better than the other because I notice that the 80-200 f/4 is a heck of a lot more money - if you can find one. Thanks for any advice.
  19. I am a new Leica M9 user and I bought my camera with a 50mm Summicron f/2. Doing a lot of travelling I felt last week in Chicago that I really need to go wide when shooting skylines, architecture and interiors (it was the art museum). In two weeks I will go to India and I really want something before that trip. I have been thinking of both the Super Elmar M 21mm and the Elmarit M 28mm ASPH and I am going back and forth between them. I am quite well aware of the positives and negatives of them but cannot make up my mind! What would be the recommendation from you using these lenses today in your daily photography and when traveling?
  20. I recently acquired a Leica II screw mount camera with a collapsible Leitz Elmar 50mm f/3,5 lens. The 81587 serial number on the camera body seems to date it to 1932. But I am really curious about the lens. The rotating barrel with the depth of field markings has a three digit serial number… “420” – not the six-digit number that seems to have started around 1933. There is no “o” engraved near the lens focus lever although there is an “o” engraved in the 12 o’clock position of the lens mount on the camera. I assume that this is the original lens that came with the camera. My questions are: 1) When was this Elmar lens made? 2) Was it designed to specifically match my Leica II camera body? 3) Will it work correctly on other Leica screw mount cameras? Thanks for any information you can provide.
  21. friendly female runner [ATTACH]320586[/ATTACH] M8.2, Elmar 2.8 - 50mm 2. Vers., ISO 160, 0.022 sec., Aperture 3, 15. June 2012.
  22. I can't choose between Elmar 24 3.8 or Elmarit 28mm 2.8 Who has used both and know what lens is better, I know this is a dull question since it depends on what I'll be doing with it... but just in regular which do you think is a better companion for my M8?
  23. I've compared a few classical Leitz/Zeiss lenses at the NEX-5N - maybe someone ist interested: NEX-5N and classical 50mm Zeiss / Leitz lenses 1) Leitz Elmar 5cm 1:3.5, uncoated (1936) 2) Zeiss Jena Sonnar LTM 5 cm 1:1.5, coated (1941) 3) Leitz Summarit 5cm 1:2, coated (1952) 4) Zeiss Jena Biotar 5.8cm 1:2, cooated (1953) 5) Zeiss Jena Tessar 5cm 1:2.8, coated (1956) 6) Zeiss Planar ZM 2/50mm (2005) 7) Zeiss C-Sonnar ZM 1.5/50mm (2005) I'ts just a small comparison - but better than nothing. If someone of the native english speaking could correct my terrible English i would be more than glad - just send me a message via "contact" at artaphot.ch, including the corrected text. I will insert it as soon as possible. Stephan
  24. As if anyone could have doubts about the M9 being a great landscape camera...! (M9-P + Elmar 24mm f/3.8) Cheers! Photography by Baldomero Coelho
  25. Can someone tell me if this is truly a triplet? From what I know the knurled focus ring and 39mm thread suggest this is of Walter Mandler designed triplet. It is also bayonet mount But all Serial number lists suggest its made in 1962: 1 913 001-1 967 100: 1962 According to Erwin Puts it is made in 1964: 4/90mm, Elmar , 3-element lens, 1964. This lens is a Canadian design and with only three single elements, a case-study of optical simplicity. Its full aperture performance is better than that of the predecessor with the classical 3 group/4 element construction. Overall contrast is a bit higher, the definition of fine detail has improved edge contrast and especially the performance in the field is much better. Vignetting is .7 stops. At 1:4 the contrast gets visibly higher and now very fine detail is recorded over the whole image area with good clarity. The Elmarit 1:2.8/90mm at 1: 4 cannot equal the 3-element Elmar here. Stopping down further brings in finer detail and at 1:11 we find image quality of a thoroughly modern level. This lens has been introduced at the same time as the Tele-Elmarit 1:2.8/90mm, which replaced the Elmarit 1:2.8/90mm. As the Tele-Elmarit could not be used with the bellows attachment and had not the best performance at closer distances, Leitz offered the Elmar as a lens for these applications. Close up performance is quite good. Distortion is negligible. It does show the intriguing strategy of fine tuning the lens performance for a specified set of tasks. It was not possible in those days to create one general purpose lens and so Leitz optimised the designs in different directions. A luxury that could not be extended indefinitely as it was a costly strategy. With modern glasses, this lens would deliver a very interesting performance. Any insight would be appreciated? I hope I am not violating any rules by quoting Puts? If it truly is, What is the value of this lens in decent condition, not mint but pretty nice? Thanks in advance.
