  1. OK, let's start! Iso 6400, 18mm at f2.8
  2. Dass Digitalkameras Probleme mit kräftigen Rottönen haben, ist ja nichts Neues. Hieran habe ich mir die Zähne ausgebissen - das JPG aus der Kamera und das in Photoshop geöffnete DNG, hier wieder als JPG abgespeichert, waren einfach nicht ineinander überzuführen. Die Wahrheit liegt wohl irgendwo in der Mitte. Das Rot war jedoch gelblich, nicht Richtung Magenta und ganz und gar nicht matt. Irgendwie wirkt das JPG durchzeichneter. Weiß jemand, wie man das in den Griff bekommt? Ich habe es mit allen mir bekannten Methoden versucht (Kanäle, selektive Farbkorrektur, Farbtemperatur), ging einfach nicht. Vielleicht weil das JPF von vorneherein nicht soviel Dynamik mitbringt? Mit dem echten DNG ist der Unterschied natürlich viel krasser. Im DNG scheint der Gelbton (Orange) komplett zu fehlen, d.h. das Rot ist stark Richtung Magenta verschoben.

  4. I haven't got my CL yet, but not being technically savvy, I know I will be asking: How do I do this? How do I do that? I don't think I'll be alone. I am sure that fellow CL'ers will chip in with solutions. Ask away. I hope the moderator will pin this thread.
  5. Hi Guys, love the SF40 which you all had suggested. I love the flash, however i shoot in Afperture Priority and it seems that the flash only sincs at 1/60 . I also use Auto ISO, is there a way to get HSS on this flash and my CL ? I could not find a setting in the menu. Thank you in advance as always for your great help. I have just gotten the 35/1.4 which i would hope would give me a larger range on the flash.
  6. Remote beach - fishing communities, City and townships, remote rural areas, Tourist spot Victoria Falls, Safari through Botswana - wildlife. The luggage restriction will be down to 15 kg per person on some stretches, including handluggage and cameras. So: Focal lenghts from 24 equ. to 800 equ., at least one fast lens, redundancy, two bodies... Not too heavy and compact. My solution will be Panasonic GX8, 15, 25 DG Summiluxes, 100-40 DG Vario-Elmar, CL, 18-56, 55-135, Summilux-M 24, five spare batteries , two chargers, SF40, odds and ends. All will fit easily into a compact Hadley Presstop and weigh under 8 kg :). It is a kit that I have been waiting for for many years. If there had been a compact TL 100-400 the Panasonic would have been replaced by a second CL body.
  7. Hi guys, I wanted to add a CL to my Leica SL (to have a second body) Have you tried the SL lenses on the CL? How they work? (image quality, autofocus, etc.) I have 50SL and 90SL... Thanks in advance!
  8. Has anybody used any arca-swiss type L-bracket on the CL? Alain.
  9. The Leica CL will be available in silver anodized finish soon.

  11. Die Leica CL wird bald in Silber erhältlich sein.
  12. There have been many conversations here and elsewhere regarding battery life. I thought I would share my recent experience. I have just spent an interesting, if tiring day pounding the halls at Photokina. I had with me my CL, 11-23 & 18-55 lenses & three batteries. The camera was set to record raw+jpg (small). I used the viewfinder only with minimal chimping & diving into the menu. The first battery lasted all day at Photokina, and even into the following day walking around Cologne. Once the photos were in Lightroom a quick count revealed 462 exposures before the battery symbol started flashing red. To my mind, very impressive.
  13. I just received the very nice Korean-made LIM Thumb Grip for the CL, which appears to look identical to the Leica-branded CL Thumb Grip, and, is priced ⅓ less. Good enough for me. Color perfectly matches the CL, fit is excellent, and gives some added thumb support to hold the CL with more stability. Highly recommended.
  14. I know this has been covered in a variety of posts, but until Leica fix the issue with a firmware update I’m looking for what different solutions users are deploying, and it might be helpful to keep this issue under a common topic. Today was my first ‘full day’ of street shooting since I acquired my CL and the wandering focus point was particularly annoying as it often defaulted to the bottom left of the screen/viewfinder; why is this? I understand that you can reposition it by tapping the LCD screen, but I prefer to use the EVF and until you view, you don’t know where the focus point is, by the time you’ve recentred it a ‘decisive moment’ can be missed. How do you guys overcome the issue?
  15. Hi all, I have recently sold my Leica Q in order to buy something with interchangeable lenses. I am really struggling to chose between buying a new Leica CL, Summicron 23mm (and I will probably down the road buy the adapter and some M-lenses), or a used Leica M 240 along with a used Leica M lens (probably 50 mm Summicron). In the end both options will do the same damage to my wallet For info, I do currently not own any Leica lenses. I am not a professional, merely a happy amateur. My photography is concentrated around portraits (bokeh!!), family, travel, social activities, landscape, architecture. My heart is leaning towards the M, while my brain (and wife, even though she is not negative for the M) towards the CL. I am a bit afraid of the rangefinder, and if I will be able to focus as quick as I want to. The CL have AF on TL-lenses and focus-peaking on M-glass through the EVF (I know the M240 have focus-peaking on the screen and the optional viewfinder, but then the point of the RF is kinda gone?). After all the CL might just be a pit-stop to the M(?). I am not interested in sports- or action photography (even though we do have a eager and young dog), but it would be awful to miss a moment due to lacking focus. My question is; which option would you buy, and why? PS: I have in the process already passed on Sony and Fujifilm due to their overly-complex nature...
  16. Just curious... Have any of you had an SL... got tired of the weight of the SL glass, and have now gone CL completely?? I had both a Q and SL... with a ton of SL glass. I recently traded my Q for a CL 18mm KIt + some cash. I then added a 23. I just sold some of my SL glass... the 90-280 and 50 SL. I really love the SL and it's IQ, but I'm finding the CL a pleasure to carry around (just like the Q was). To me, the CL is basically an interchangeable lens Q. Yes, I would love if it was FF, but then the glass would be bigger. I don't see myself selling the SL...at least not yet. The SL body is not that big... but the zooms and 50 SL certainly are. Thoughts??
  17. I have had an M10 for over a year and recently purchased a CL as a backup. I love the CL but why oh why couldn't they put the 'Play' button in the middle like on the M10? Every time I want to view an image I press the 'Function' instead of 'Play'! I'd disable the function button completely if I could. Ok, I'll calm down now. Great little camera though!
  18. How would you like the leather trap comes with the CL? It has no adjustment in length, and somewhat long... I have not used it yet in order to keep it totally new, in case need to let go the CL. Would think the traditional Leica camera trap that's in all M and R cameras could be a replacement on this CL? Which one is more usable I wonder...
  19. Apologies if this has been discussed before. For those with more technical knowledge than me, is it even possible for Leica to add Bulb mode to the CL? I was trying to do some slow shutter landscape and was frustrated by the limitation of 30 sec shutter. Thanks.
  20. Just wanted to thank the community for all the great threads on the CL thread. I just made a deal to trade my Q for CL kit (18mm F2.8) + some cash to me. I will play with the 18 since it came with the kit... but may wind up going to the 23 F2. For anyone interested here is why, and I gave it a ton of thought. I really do love my Q PROS: 1. Interchangeable lenses. 2. Same mount as SL. I already have several SL lenses. 3. Smaller size. 4. Q is due for an update. CONS: 1. Crop sensor, which limits DOF. 2. No macro... which I don;t really use anyway. Thoughts??
  21. Hello dear CL owners! In my CL I noticed that the display warms up very quickly, more than other cameras (I had in the past). It's nothing dramatic, but in warm weather it's already noticeably warm. Do you make the same experience with your camera? Thanks a lot and a good week. Andreas
  22. Perhaps this topic had been addressed beforehand. I would like to know if these batteries can be used for CL: The battery is branded as DiviPower made by iCm Photography (China) - sold as compatible Panasonic DMW-BLC12PP rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery for Panasonic Lumix cameras. They are rated at 7.4V 2500mAh, higher than Leica's battery BP-DC12 rated at 7.2V 1200mAh. They are priced at 20% of the original. But I am not sure if the extra 0.2V will be OK for the CL circuitry? Thanks for your advice and thoughts. Benedict.
  23. Hi All, My first post here, I've only been lurking since I don't have a Leica, yet. I've been contemplating a Leica, hoping to get some friendly advises whether a used CL is a good buy, or a used M 262, and a couple of prime lenses for them. A bit of background. My first real camera was a Yashica rangefinder with a 41mm lens, a gift from my aunt when I was going overseas to study. I shot thousands of slides with it, well, that was my only camera. Looking back, I like the 41mm focal length, and to this day, I still don't shoot at 50mm. I shot for a while with a Nikon D300 and the generic 18-200mm zoom while working and traveling in Europe and Asia, an 85mm for portraits, that's pretty much all I shoot, very little landscape or macro or anything else. Occasionally, I rent the Nikon 14-24mm to do some interior work. For wide,the 28mm is not satisfactory for me, I would go 21mm or wider. I moved to the D810 for full-frame and only own 2 lenses, 35mm/2 and 85mm/1.4. So I want to get something more compact and don't mind APS-C to travel with, a Japan trip is coming up. I seriously considered the Fuji x100F/T but crossed that out after trying a friend's X-E2, something about the Fuji tone that I do not get excited about. I considered the Nikon Df but it's not much smaller. Then I started reading this forum. The M10 is out of my budget, and wonder if the M 262 is still a good buy, I will probably look for a 40mm first before considering a 35mm/2. Along the way I considered and ruled out the Q, excellent as it is, don't mind a fixed-lens but I think I would not be happy at 28mm. Yes, I know you can crop to 35mm and 50mm, but it's not the same, if you get my drift., So the other thought is a used CL, APS-C is fine. I understand the CL goes well with the 23mm Summincron for 35mm equivalent, the Nokton 40mm sounds good, but that'll be 60mm equivalent. So would anyone suggest a 28mm to give me a 42mm crop? Sorry for the long-winded post. Thanks All.
  24. So, I got my new CL. I always buy leather cases for my cameras to protect them. It looks like Leica's case for the CL won't be available until the Spring. That sucks! I wrote to Zhou and he has no plans to make one. Does anybody know if any third party is making, or is planning to make, a case for the camera? Thanks! Marc
