  1. Just found out that my next M246 suffers from sensor issues. My first M246 was replaced because there was an error with the sensor on the first one, and now it's happening all over with the M246 which replaced the first one with sensor error; i have to send my next M246 to service. Three years ago i jumped in the water: I switched to Leica from Nikon (and a short period with Canon) after 25 years without any techinical faults or issues what so ever, and i never looked back. That is until now, because i'm wondering if i really want to stay with Leica after these experiences after all. Three years with severe errors on two different digital bodies (sensors). - Is this sufficent enough? - What would you expect from Leica's customer service in this matter? - Would you go the other way around again, turn the back on Leica and return to Nikon based upon the experiences these (first) three years? Or shall i just tolerate this?
  2. Hallo liebe Community, Ich würde gerne mehr über meine Leica III wissen, was zum Beispiel ihre Seriennummer angeht ob sie mit eine "berühmten" Leica in ihrem Seriennummernradius hergestellt wurde oder ob der weg den sie zurück gelegt hat irgendwie nach verfolgt werden kann. Ich hoffe ihr könnt mir ein paar antworten geben denn ich mag es viel über meine Kamera zu wissen Seriennummer ist die : 330689 Liebe Grüße, Nils
  3. I've kept my Summarit-M 90mm in the dry cabinet for some time. I recently took it out and found the rubber ring turned white or kind of greyish. I tried a cleaner pen from Lens Potion. The website is www.LensPotion.com
  4. Guten Morgen, Ich bin neu hier und habe mir eine Leica III gekauft um auch den richtigen einstieg in die Messsucherkamera sparte zu haben. Ich hoffe ihr könnt mir zu anfang Tipps geben auf den Bildern seht ihr meine Leica die kommt in der nächsten woche per post
  5. Hey all! While anxiously waiting for this camera to become available, I was wonder if you can connect the TL2 directly to an iPhone or iPad using a Lightning to USB-C cable to import photos. Not sure is there is some kind of active component in the camera adapter that Apple sells, or if you'll be to import simply with this cable. Thanks in advanced!

  8. Did I miss the big L-mount camera announcement scheduled for June 14? Usually takes a couple extra days for news to reach Idaho. The ponies run every third day.
  9. Ladies and gentlemen, today I published my review of Harry Benz amazing straps for Leica cameras (Harry Benz also produces straps for any camera, of course). You can read the article following the link below: HARRY BENZ “THE BROGUE” STRAPS FOR LEICA CAMERAS REVIEW Hope you'll find it interesting, thanks for reading. Best regards, Vieri
  10. (Following up my post in the Iceland thread with this separate thread since the discussion has moved away from Iceland): JTLeica asked: "I dont mean this as a dig, but I would love to know what you do with your A7RIII images that you cannot do with your Leica images... Being someone that shot an A7RII for two years." First, to reiterate what I posted above and many times before in the forum, I love my Leica, the plurality of my disposable income goes to Leica, and I shoot more often with my M10 or my CL than with any other camera (including my phone). In fact I brought my M10 with me into work today, like I do most days, whether or not I expect to run into any apparent photogenic subject matter. But I am also objective enough to call it like I see it, and from my perspective—consistent with many other observations and data, including some postings in LUF—the A7rIII offers some real *imaging* advantages. That doesn't mean that the a7rIII is overall a "better" camera (I carry the M10 daily, not the A7rIII, after all), as it's not so black and white. Size, fun factor, and other considerations weigh in as well. But since you asked about imaging, here are some advantages I've seen with the A7rIII over the M10, which includes many comparisons using the best native lenses for each system, as well as using the same M lenses on both the M10 and the A7rIII: 1) Cropping capability and detail. As you might expect, having 42 MP vs. 24 MP means you have significantly more cropping flexibility and can show more detail. Here are two photos taken with the A7rIII that are a 10 MP crop and a 16 MP crop out of the 42 MP original: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8hfrphgligas10s/Sony%20a7riii%2010.3%20MP%20crop.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/fdnqbuf3yboik1d/Sony%20a7riii%2016%20MP%20crop.jpg?dl=0 There's not much else in the original frames that I liked. If I had taken the same photos with a 24 MP camera, even ignoring the other imaging advantages listed below, the same crops would have been 5.9 MP (6" wide printed at 300 dpi), and 9 MP (10" wide @ 300 dpi). I appreciate that for some viewing or printing formats, even a 5.9 MP image is fine. But for printing beyond small size, or viewing on a 15 MP display like the 5K monitor that I'm using now, it's not ideal. As a related point, 42 MP also helps when capturing details is important. Here's a comparison of a test subject: A7rIII + 85 GM @ f/5.6: https://www.dropbox.com/s/inb8frdf7hkf8we/85%20GM%20at%205.6%20on%20a7riii%20center.jpg?dl=0 M10 + 75 Noctilux @ f/5.6 (about the sharpest a Leica M lens gets): https://www.dropbox.com/s/oru79iyb5alqbrt/75%20Noct%20at%205.6%20on%20M10%20center.jpg?dl=0 A7rIII + 75 Noctilux @ f/5.6: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hrcdu83gcs7fi9o/75%20Noct%20at%205.6%20on%20a7riii%20center.jpg?dl=0 To my eye, the A7rIII shots capture much more detail, either using the native Sony lens, or using the 75 Noctilux. 2) Noise and ISO performance. Consistent with other reports, at higher ISOs (>5000), the combination of a brighter frame for the A7rIII even at the same ISO setting as the M10 (see other LUF posts that have extensively discussed this topic), and an inherently less noisy sensor, I get about 1.5 stops more ISO latitude with the A7rIII than with the M10. What might be less publicized is that even at lower ISOs I see substantially less noise with the A7rIII. Here are two images of the same subject using the 75 noctilux. The M10 photo was taken at ISO 800, and the A7rIII photo was taken at ISO 1000. Yet the sensor noise in the out-of-focus wall areas is actually lower for the A7rIII photo than the M10 photo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wa65iut21uoslcc/75%20Noct%20at%201.25%20on%20M10%20center.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/rp6y0x4unk0hs1t/75%20Noct%20at%201.25%20on%20Sony%20a7riii%20center.JPG?dl=0 3) Color. The M10 photos using AWB generally come out more yellow than real life, while the A7rIII photos using AWB are usually closer to real life in my experience. The wall color in the above two photos is a good example—the actual color of the wall is very close to the A7rIII capture (rust-colored, not ochre-orange). I routinely fix this in post, but I'd rather not have to. 4) Raw file headroom at the top end. The M10's DNG files leave almost no room for highlight recovery. The raw files of the A7rIII, like the various Nikons's I've shot in the past (D700, D800E, D810, D810A, D4, D4s) all offer quite a bit more room for highlight recovery. Again, for most situations I enjoy shooting the M10 more than any other camera, which is why I use the M10 more frequently and own more M10 gear than Sony gear. But my love for Leica does not cross into blind fanaticism (despite what my wife says!), and when shooting under conditions for which the above imagining strengths of the A7rIII are critical, I take the Sony instead. These findings are also reasons why I'm excited by the rumors that Leica continues to release new full-frame cameras. If the rumored C-M has a sensor and/or software that addresses any of the above issues, I will buy it, along with its native lenses.

  12. (0) Preface Confession: I like my Soviet Leica clones! There, I’ve said it! You may start throwing eggs and rotten tomatoes at me right here and now - or you may defer until you have read this piece with a little tongue-in-cheek Since this forum teems with true LTM experts (no irony here, I appreciate the knowledgeable and helpful members of this subforum), most of you may rightfully decide not to bother with these propaedeutic musings. No offence taken. Fig. 1: ca. 1955 FED-1(G), ca. 1951 KMZ Zorki-1b, 1932 Leica II(D), 1953 Leica IIIf(RD), harmoniously side by side. Although this whole post is is a bit off topic, I take the liberty to post in LUF, because even the Leica company museum in Wetzlar proudly exhibits an astonishing array of Leica clones, understandably, in order to underpin the desireability of the original.

  14. I was searched for a topic called the "Decisive Moment" but only found a couple of brief entries, so started this one. The only picture I can really be happy with at capturing that moment is this one. I saw the lady on the bike coming into the picture and just had enough time to frame the picture with the flagpole on the left and streetlight on the right, lucky that I was just the right distance away to get them in the picture, though they are on the very edge of the negative, and the lens was focussed at the right distance, and she was just in the right place when the shutter fired. Leica 2f with 50mm f2.8 Elmar, Ilford Delta 100, scanned from a darkroom print. Makes you appreciate HCB's skill, quick eye and quick reactions.

  16. I'm selling my 21mm Super Angulon f/4 M mount in favor of something a little more "practical". While in Cuba earlier this year, I found myself using the Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 on my Contax G2 quite a bit but for my next few trips, I'll bring only a couple of M bodies (M7 & Typ 246). I really love the results that I got out of my Zeiss and am wondering if I should go with another Zeiss (25mm f/2.8 or 28mm f/2.8) OR a new-ish 28mm Elmarit ASPH. So my two questions are "is the Elmarit ASPH quality worth more than double the price of a used Zeiss 25mm or 28mm?" and "In order to keep my work consistent, should I just stick with the Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 for the way it renders colors?" Examples of my work in Cuba with the 28mm f/2.8 on the Contax G2 below. Both photos with Portra 400.
  17. Its now nearly a year since I purchased the M246, and I was thinking to take a quick look back at how my experience has been with this camera. It was during a relative cold and dark period of the winter last year here in Norway that I was evaluating what I could do to enhance my photographic interests and capabilities. At the time I was using the Sony system, which to be fair I was very happy with. The sensors were impressive, and the lens setup had become very good, especially when taking into account all the amazing lenses from Leica and other producers that could be used with a simple adapter. Still, there was something intriguing about owning and using an M. I had always looked at Leica cameras as somewhat mystique. One the one hand I found them simple and elegant - which is stark contrast to Sony cameras. On the other hand I wondered why people would actually pay to not have features that I found so important for a modern camera. A simple thing like not having to do a black screen after a long exposure or the ability to move around the focus point in an electronic view finder was to me almost a must at the time. But I wanted to try a Leica - to find out what the fuzz was all about. I had a few choices of course. I could opt for an old M9, but knew that I would despise its low ISO capabilities. The M240 was nice, but I didn’t really see how it would change my photos from what I achieved with my Sony. So I opted for a special camera instead, a camera that only saw things in black and white and had its speciality in distinguishing between light and dark. As soon as I tried the camera I was in love. Never before had I pressed such a smooth shutter. The body was sturdy, with no plastics. Everything was manual, and apart from ISO i could always see the settings before pressing the shutter. The camera felt good to hold, and more importantly the rangefinder was a joy to use. I quickly learned that I was just as right-eyed as left-eyed, while I have always used my left eye for photography. And somewhat surprisingly, I seldom saw the need for an electronic viewfinder, and all other quirks, techs and specs from the Sony camera soon became obsolete. It didn’t take long before I discovered that the M246 was a very special camera, not only because it was only in black and white, but also because it thrived in whether conditions that most cameras despised. Not long after I purchased the M246 I travelled to Lofoten for a week with photography. Originally I hadn’t planned to use the Leica that much, but in the end 85 percent of the photos I took that week was with the M246. The key was the weather. Every day was stormy, and the weather conditions were the worst I have ever experienced. The wind was so strong that a tripod became unusable for large periods at the time, and snowstorm after snowstorm came in from the north, forcing me to run for shelter every 10 minutes. Pockets of sun were just that, pockets that lasted for minutes before they were overrun by a new snowstorm. It was in this weather I discovered why the M246 was so special. The camera loved bad weather. The darkness, the storms and the wind was captured in a beautiful way that no other camera could capture. That I only had black and white made the images more pure and raw, thereby amplifying the mood created from the lack of light. It is this that is special for the M Monochrom. It shines when light is scarce, whereas most cameras shine when light is abundant. This has opened up a whole new world of photographic perspectives for me. Since then I have never looked back. I now see shapes and light in a completely different way, and its all thanks to the M246. ISO capabilities are incredible, and it is fantastic to be able to take photos with ISO up to 10 000 without really sacrificing contrast or details. I truly believe that I have become a better photographer after acquiring it. At least I find it much more inspiring to plan new trips and projects. Are there things about the camera that bothers me? Of course. Like several others have mentioned on this forum, its easy to burn highlights with the M246. This has not been a major problem for me, because I just avoid overexposing in the way I have done with other digital cameras. Besides, the level of details in the shadows is very impressive, and its easy to adjust for under exposure in post-processing. I still miss being able to move around the focus point when using the EVF, but thats also only a minor issue as I most often use the rangefinder. Thanks for reading, and now some photos.

    Leica SL with Noctilux 1.0 Gin: Blackwoods superior Tonic: Nordic Blue
  23. When shooting with my Leica SL, I often set my crop ratio to square for composition. I the past when I imported my DNG files into Photoshop CC I was able to work with the entire 6000 x 4000 file. And was under the impression that only the JPG was cropped to 1:1. Yesterday while importing some DNG files into Camera Raw CC Version 10.2 the 1:1 cropping was applied to the DNG even though my file shows 6000 x 4000 px. Has anyone got any advise on how to retrieve my full DNG file dimensions? I have found some Adobe plugin for Lightroom CC online to retrieve the crop edges, but do not use Lightroom and prefer Camera Raw for processing my images. Any help will be appreciated.
