  1. Hi folks, I have a problem with my Leicaflex SL and I'd really appreciate some advice. When I bought it, I put in a Cris adapter with a 386 battery - the meter worked just fine for about 2 weeks, and then just stopped working. Since then, I've tried several fresh 386 batteries with the Cris adapter and no joy with the meter. A google search found some mentions of the Cris adapter not working well with the SL. I really like the option of having a meter in camera, so I'd be very grateful for a solution, based on your experience. Many thanks, Raj
  2. Advice please, I have a Leicaflex. I am under the impression that 3 cam lenses (except 24 mm ) will work with it. I find that on later (but non rom ) lenses the aperture ring is stiff as it rubs against the camera. I tried a 1.4 85 and it was hard to turn the aperture ring, like wise a 3 cam 1.4 50mm. Put on a SL2 battery cover didn't help No problem with my early generation 50m cron. Am I doing something wrong? So the question is there a 1.4 lens for the Leicaflex I can use without this sticky aperture problem In advance thanks Adam
  3. Salve, I’ve broken open my Leicaflex SL2 and I’m stuck with a stuck meter needle. I’m wondering if the wonderfully knowledgeable people here have ideas how to proceed. One day the meter suddenly stopped working. The needle was just out of view and wouldn’t come down for either the meter switch or the battery test. I confirmed with an ohm meter that the circuits seem to be working. So I carefully took the top off and popped the prism out and it seems as if the needle is stuck, just out of view. It jiggles ever so slightly when I activate the meter. How could this have happened, and what can I do? Taking the whole meter assembly out looks prohibitively complicated. FYI, I commenced with the repair myself very hesitatingly, because I cannot afford a professional repairman. Last year I fixed my Summilux at home, which saved me about 250 euros right there. EDIT: here are some photos of the disassembly phase.
  4. Hallo, am ersten Tag einer Reise, die heute zu Ende gegangen ist, ließ mich meine Leicaflex SL2 im Stich. Ich habe einen Film eingelegt und ein Bild gemacht. Ein paar Minuten später wollte ich ein weiteres machen, und habe langsam den Auslöser gedrückt. Der Spiegel ging hoch und blieb oben, der Verschluss bewegte sich nicht. Ich habe den Film dann entnommen. Der Tag war gelaufen, da ich das Reservegehäuse in der Ferienwohnung gelassen hatte. Jetziger Status ist: Rückspulknopf ist reingedrückt, Auslöser lässt sich drücken, dann geht der Spiegel hoch und bleibt oben. Verschluss läuft nicht. Spiegel lässt sich am Hebel an der Seite runterdrücken. Ich gehe davon aus, dass ich um einen Werkstattbesuch nicht rumkomme, hat jemand aber evtl. eine Idee woran es liegen könnte und einen Tipp für eine Werkstatt? Fotomechanik Reinhardt ist ja leider nicht mehr aktiv und hat mir das letzte mal geholfen.
  5. Hey folks. I am relatively new to the forum and to Leica world, although far from new from this world!! Senior citizen status is reluctantly acknowledged. I am building my Leica collection and just acquired a Leicaflex in beautiful condition, described as "Camera are perfect working condition, speed and meter are accurate, with macro prism screen, screen are clean and clear, but with visible haze,This will not affect your viewing or focus. " The haze in the screen appears to be cement deteriorating, but with the micro focus center dot, it should not affect focusing. The shutter curtain is beautiful, and appears to be practically unused. All speeds work and sound accurate. Viewing though the back, the shutter appears to properly cover the full image area at all speeds. The winding mechanism is smooth as butter. The body covering is mint. The back hinge shows many tiny bubbly spots under the black paint. Mirror lock up and the self timer work fine. The interior of the camera looks mint. The problem is with the battery chamber. The center terminal of the chamber is detached and is rattling around loose. It was obviously broken. There is no way that the meter could have been checked, unless the damage was done by the person checking it - for example, pulling the tab up to produce more tension on the battery. (Yes, I know that can happen - thankfully I learned that little lesson on a throwaway cheap body of a junk camera). My dilemma is this: I have just begun my Leica collection (all to be users, not shelf queens) and do not know if I should return this body for a refund (only $110 purchase) or keep it and possibly leave neutral or negative feedback to the seller. The seller states in their listing that they do not offer partial refunds - either love it or send it back at the buyer's expense. Given that these bodies are a good 50 or so years old, I don't expect a $100 camera to look or operate as if it just left the factory. In your experience, should I expect to be able to pick up a Leicaflex in the near future for anything approaching this price, or am I better off keeping this one and continuing to be on the lookout for another one? If I keep it, if it were you, would you give no feedback, neutral, or negative feedback on the transaction? I would appreciate your input. I have learned a lot perusing this forum, and I am grateful for the body of knowledge and experience represented by its members.
  6. I seem to recall someone saying that some of the shorter Leica R focal lengths weren't compatible with the Leicaflex SL ... something about a change between the SL and SL2 providing more mirror clearance or something like that. I have the following: Elmarit-R 19mm f/2.8 v1 Elmarit-R 24mm f/2.8 Summicron-R 35mm f/2 They're all three-cam lenses. Would any of these be incompatible with the Leicaflex SL? Thanks! G
  7. Hallo Leicaexperten, ich besitze eine LEICAFLEX, die ehemals meinem Großvater gehörte. Die Kamera trägt die Seriennummer 108019, was meinen Informationen nach auf ein Vorserienmodell schließen ließe. Allerdings dürfte sie dann, sofern ich dies (äußerst dürftig) im Internet nachrecherchiert habe keinen "LEICAFLEX" - Schriftzug tragen.. Bei näherer Betrachtung tun sich weitere Ungereimtheiten auf, so hat die Kamera beispielsweise einen M42 Objektivanschluss. Dieser scheint jedoch nachträglich (und nicht sehr fachmännisch) angepasst worden zu sein. So weit ich mich erinnern kann, stammt die Kamera aus der Räumung des Dacora - Kamerawerks in Grafenwöhr. Dort wurde sie, wie ich vermute, zu Testzwecken zerlegt, was einige Kratz- und Hebelspuren, sowie deutlich beanspruchte Schrauben beweisen. Vll. weiß ja irgendjemand aus der Expertenfraktion, was es damit auf sich hat! Grüße & Danke!
  8. Good day to all! Perhaps this topic has not been discussed, or it was too narrow and scattered. In any case, I would like to invite owners Leicaflex (original version, Mark I & II) to share experiences on later editions R-lens to the body Leicaflex. I know that not all R-lenses 1-2-3 cam could be used. If you have experience - please note the name of the lenses that you just used to Original Leicaflex except classical lenses mentioned in the manual. Just wanted to know, are compatible with Original Leicaflex: Leica R Vario-Elmar 28-70mm 3-Cam and other young 3-cam zoom-lenses. Thanks!
  9. Ich habe davon gehört, dass es die Leicaflex möglicherweise gleich zu Beginn mit dem Doppelschwungaufzug gegeben haben soll. Weiß jemand darüber Bescheid? In Solms hat man die Unterlagen nicht mehr. Besten Dank
  10. Moin Zusammen ! Neulich konnte ich eine wunderschöne, insgesamt sehr gut erhaltene und funktionstüchtige Leicaflex (2) erwerben. Sie ist wirklich wunderschön, denn das Gehäuse scheint mir, obwohl etwas schwerer als die SL, doch in den Proportionen ausgewogener (nicht so hoch + schöne verchromte Einstellräder). Nur, mir ist aufgefallen, daß die meisten meiner R-Objektive mit 3-cam Anschluß sich nicht, oder schwer anschließen lassen, weil der solide Batteriefachdeckel das nicht immer zuläßt, bzw der Blenden-Einstellring daran schleift. Gibt es dafür Abhilfe ? Vielleicht einen anderen Batteriefachdeckel, der etwas schmaler ist ? Man könnte ja einfach ein Stück abdremeln, aber das möchte ich dem schönen Stück eigentlich nicht antun. Gruß, Philipp Ach ja, hier noch die Maße der schönen Dame, eventuell kann das jemand ins Wiki eintragen: Breite: 15,0 cm; Tiefe: 6,3 cm über Alles incl. Beli-Rahmen; Höhe des Gehäuses ohne Prisma: 7,4 cm; mit Prisma: 9,3 cm Gewicht mit Batterie, ohne Bajonett-Deckel : 836 Gramm Dagegen die Leicaflex-SL : Breite: 15,0 cm; Tiefe: 5,7 cm; Höhe des Gehäuses ohne Prisma: 7,9 cm; mit Prisma: 9,7 cm Gewicht mit Batterie, ohne Bajonett-Deckel : 778 Gramm
  11. I have recently been in correspondence with David Young, a director of the Leica Historical Society of America. I sent him a scan of a manual he did not have. He hosts a very wide range of Leica manuals here David Young's Photosite. He said he is currently looking for scans of Leicaflex and Leicaflex SL manuals. If anyone has a manual that they could send me scans or digital photographs (JPEG's, PDF's, DNG's or pretty much anything else), I will use Acrobat Pro to assemble them into a booklet and forward them to him. If you cannot scan them, you are in Europe and are willing to lend me your Leicaflex/SL manual, I would be happy to scan them for you and then return the manual to you. If anyone can help, please PM me. Wilson
