  1. Guten Morgen, ich wollte nur mal kurz anfragen, in welchen Bereichen sich die M8.2 preislich aktuell bewegt. Die M8 rangiert ja so um die 1000 €, wieviel Aufpreis ist für die 8.2 gerechtfertigt Vielen Dank

    Bin beim Rundgang in der Stadt durch Zufall ins Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) geraten. Das Kunstwerk "Stuhl" steht direkt hinter der Eingangstüre. Der sitzende Aufseher hat mich beim Zutritt nicht angesprochen, vielleicht war die Leica um den Hals Legitimation genug, vielleicht lag es auch daran, dass ich unter kurzem Gruß zielstrebig die Treppe in den ersten Stock hinauf gegangen bin. Gruß Oliver

  7. Guten Abend Leica Forum, ich bin seit einiger Zeit auf der Suche nach einer Leica M8/8.2. Bisher habe ich dafür Ebay oder Ebay-Kleinanzeigen genutzt. Leider sind entweder alle Angebot meiner Meinung nach zuteuer oder zuschnalle vergriffen. Ich werde dort weiter suchen aber, wollte fragen ob ihr mir auch andere Orte empfehlen könnt. Egal ob Online oder nicht. Sollte nur nicht allzu weit von Frankfurt entfernt sein. Vielen Lieben dank schonmal im Vorraus. Liebe Grüße Flo
  8. So I have this set up but only 2 coded lens so far. my lens is 18mm f/3.8 ASPH (Leica coded) and 35mm 1.4 ASPH (code with Sharpie but recognized by the camera; as far as I can tell, when I push the info button, the diagram showed up). my problem On the camera I set Lens detection ON + UV/IR, 1st curtain, lend dependent auto slow sync; on the SF-58, TTL, pointing forward, F4 (manually set). in all modes (TTL, A, M) I cannot change the MZoom 18 to AZoom. According to the manual, I should be able to do that by pushing the Set button till MZoom or AZoom show up and then change it.... How come I cannot do that? next general question: is there a sync cord that I can use to get this flash away from the body? I am sure this is answered many times but I have trouble finding it as a new coming. thanks for your help.
  9. I have mainly shot a Nikon D3 + 300 2.8 VR at last weekends F1 GP, but had a Leica M with me at all times with a shorter lens. For the ones, who are curious, I have uploaded some shots from the weekend on my website in the galleries here. More, more, more on my site ;-) What really strikes me, is how detailed the crops from the M8.2 are. Thanks for looking!
  10. I really like, to have a print for a few weeks in my office, that, distracts me from work from time to time. I will have this one for the next days or weeks, to remind me of some moments in France, this summer:
  11. As I am processing tons of photos from the M8.2 over this weekend now, I still didn't put my jaw from the ground, as I am still amazed by the big difference, the new Lightroom 3 makes to high ISO Leica files. Leica really seems to have worked closely with Adobe, to come to better image quality during raw conversion. These samples are all straight out of camera + BW converted DNG files without further processing. You see 1:1 screen captures from my Macbook Pro 15" jpg without any processing or converting. The crops in the side by side comparison are 1:1 crops within Lightroom 3. Left side old Lightroom 2 - right side Lightroom 3: ISO2500 1/60 90 Cron @ f2 | shadow side badly underexposed With Lightroom 3 this is even good to print @ A3, as the grain gets even less prevalent during print. With Lr 2.6, it is more like pushed ISO12800 Tri X. ISO1250 1/125 90 Cron @ f4 I think | see the much smoother grads and the cleaned up under exposed surfaces in this cockpit shot in the pit lane? ISO 640 1/125 135 APO Telyt @ f3.4 | same as above - cleaner surfaces and slightly more detail without changing a setting - just converted the file into the new Lr3 processing engine. ISO 1250 1/125 135 APO Telyt @ f3.4 | much less grain, but a slightly softer look, as I missed focus by a hair in this shot. with the much better sharpening tool in Lr3 though, this is academic, to solve. The print will be awesome! All the issues, I had with the Leica M8.2 files, when I came from the mighty Nikon D3, then pushed Tri-X and then the surprising EPSON R-D1 seem solved now! Lightroom 3 let me push the Leica files now and clean them up to the natural grainy look, I prefer, giving me more light for the night shots, I love so much! I don't know about Aperture or all the other raw converters out there, as I am a Lightroom guy since I do digital photography, but this software is a must have, when shooting Leica digitals! For some, these might not look impressive - note, these files have not been touched yet! When adjusting exposure, noise reduction and sharpening, they look mind blowing. The difference between Lr2 and Lr3 is epic!
  12. Hello, this is my first post - so here it goes. I've got an M8.2 and just received it back from Solms after one month of repair for the dead-pixel problem. It used to have a nasty red-line at high ISOs, but I had detected it all the way down to ISO 160. I've just now done some tests shots and see the problem is now a green line - mostly at high ISOs only. Of course, I have all the nice documentation from Solms saying "fixed and tested". The camera was set to JPG when the problem has only shown up in DNG. Methodical they are not. So far, I've had some incredibly wonderful photos from Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia ruined by the red-line problem and am not in any way excited to find out how the green-line problem can ruin photos. Basically, I'm incredibly annoyed with Solms. Any advice for what to do? Any similar experiences with solutions? I purchased this direct from Leica Camera, so no dealers can help...

  15. So I have recently upgraded myself from M8.2 to MP and have several questions about filters. I have decided to keep all my Leica lens (18-f3.8, 28-f2.8, 35-f1.4, 50-f2, 75-f2, 90-f2 &f4) and they are all great Leica lens. The problems is that I only have the UV/IR filters that were supposed to be used for the M8.2. Question is 1. is there any problem using the UV/IR filters on the lens with MP? will there be any color casting? 2. to shoot wide open I often find 1/1000 not fast enough. So ND filters can help. How many Leica filters (not the thinnest in the world) can I stack before I get myself vignetting problems. (digital post processing will get rid of this in a heart beat but film.... I have to be more precise.) 3. what will be a good lens combo if I were to use both M8.2 and MP? suggestion please. thanks.

  17. Liebe Foristen/Dear Forum members, folgende Kamera mit Objektiv wurde gestern entwendet und von mir gestern der Polizeidienststelle in Bad Homburg als gestohlen gemeldet: the following camera and lens was stolen yesterday and I reported it the same day to the police office in Bad Homburg/Germany: LEICA M8.2 silber verchromt/silver chromed Seriennummer/Serial number: 3558651 LEICA SUMMILUX-M 1:1,4/35 mm ASPH. Seriennumme/Serial number: 4074699 Von einem Leica-Händler erhielt ich heute die Information, dass zwei junge, offenbar unerfahrene Männer im Frankfurter Raum versucht haben die gestohlene Kamera zu verkaufen. Leider war der Händler noch nicht über den Diebstahl informiert, so dass ein Zugriff nicht erfolgen konnte. Kamera und Objektiv sind bei Leica registriert und auch dort habe ich den Diebstahl gemeldet. Für jeden Hinweis der zum Auffinden der Kamera führt bin ich dankbar und bitte um Kontaktaufnahme (Handy 0151 50619224 oder Mail an fernando.salazar@t-online.de). Obwohl ich die Kamera erst ein Jahr genutzt habe geht mir der Verlust in aller erster Linie emotional nahe und gerade jetzt wo sich das Gefühl einstellte dieses wunderbare Werkzeug gut zu beherrschen schmerzt der Verlust umso mehr. Vielen Dank für Eure Hinweise und Mithilfe. A Leica shop employee informed me that two young and apparently unexperienced guys were trying to sell the camera with lens in the Frankfurt area but due to lacking invoice/documents they failed. Unfortunately the shop was not informed about the robbery when the guys showed up. Camera and lens are both registered at Leica in Solms and I have informed them also about the robbery. Any informations which can help to find the camera and lens are highly appreciated. In such case please contact me either on the mobile phone +49 151 50619224 or send a mail to fernando.salazar@t-online.de. I started to use the equipment exactly a year ago but even this short period was enough to feel deep emotional pain about the loss and more pain since I was starting just now to have a good grasp of this wonderful instrument. Thank you very much for any help or information to get back the camera and lens. Ein Frohes Neues Jahr wünscht Euch/I wish you a Happy New Year, Fernando Salazar
  18. So as you could probably discern from the title, I don't own anything Leica; unfortunately. However, I am hoping to jump into this wonderful "little" company sometime soon; however, I have a question or two. I have researched quite intensely for the past few months about rangefinders, their advantages and disadvantages, and the M8 and M8.2. I can't decide though which model would be better suited for me. Myself being a self proclaimed Leica virgin, I don't know if I could justify the additional price premium of the M8.2 over the M8. Do you guys think that the advantages in the M8.2 would really justify the extra grand or two in the aftermarket considering that I am brand new to this whole Leica field?
  19. Aufgrund der Tatsache, dass erst vor knapp einem Jahr die angekündigte M8.2 auf den Markt kam und zeitgleich die S2 angekündigt wurde, stellt sich die Frage, ob die Käufer der M8.2 jetzt vom nicht-avisierten Erscheinen der M9 verärgert sind (beim letzten Hessen-Treffen wurde geäußert, dass es KEINE M9 gäbe (siehe auch Forum). Zum einen ist der Abstand zwischen den beiden Neuerscheinungen M8.2 und M9 sehr kurz, zum anderen fand die Markeinführung der M9 ohne jegliche "Vorwarnung" statt - die Gerüchte im Forum und Internet berücksichtige ich hier nicht. Also, warum wurde die S2 angekündigt und die M9 nicht - auch wenn hier unterschiedliche Käufergruppen angesprochen werden? Freue mich auf sachliche Meinungsäußerungen. Gruß Jockele
  20. Any word on whether we can trade in the M8.2 (along with some cash) to get the M9? Or will we have to pay full price and start over?
