  1. Hi all, after reading all I could find on the forum I settled for using an achromat for macro up to the 1:1 range on the 24-90 for the moment and go for the 60/2.8 later or wait for the native SL macro. There seem to be three sets on the market: Marumi 5 and 3 diopter and Canon/Polaroid 4 and 2 diopter, which are about half the price. Would there be any reason in quality to go for the Marumi? Thanks a lot -cg-
  2. Hello, I am still evaluating if a SL is a good investment for my big collection of old R lenses. With the objects I photograph I use mainly the Macro and light Tele lenses: 60mm, 100mm, 135mm, 180mm I have almost not been using my all time favorite lens the 100mm/2.8 Apo Macro since 10 years (digital age) which I feel is a very big loss. The SL will be a fine investment if I can finally use this lens again for "daily work". So I am not interested to know how the latest AF equipment works (which I find too expensive and much too bulky for most work or for fun, probably because I prefer fixed length lenses). I am looking for people with experience (and maybe fun) to use the 90's R lenses (that not so long ago were regarded as top). I have invested much more into the R system than in M lenses, and I assume there must be many more people with the same problem. So I am looking for experiences with R-lenses with the SL, mainly for Macro use and for light Tele. If you can share your fotos even better. Imagine that you have a complete R collection, but little money to buy new equipment - so is the Leica SL worth the enormous price to reactivate the R system ? The 60, 100, 135 and 180 were the bread and butter lenses. Can they be that again with the Leica SL ? By the way, the Leica M 240 is definitely not worth the trouble (to put these R lenses in front of it) even if officially supported. Thanks for any responses.
  3. The Leica Elmarit-R 35mm f2.8 could have a very short focusing distance, I recently found it could give some quite nice shots on flowers. I put some other shots at BigBigLens.com - Leica.
  4. Das o.g. Objektiv lässt sich mit einem Retro-Ring zwar an der kamera befestigen, zeigt aber bei dem Versuch scharf zu stzellen, keinerlei Reaktionen? Wieso ist das so- gibt es einen logischen Grund?
  5. Made some (macro) pictures of the diversity of the banks of the river "Amstel", just outside Amsterdam-South, on a sunny afternoon. Enjoy!

  7. I received my CL a couple of days ago and one of the things I am quite excited about is being able to do some macro photography with it. To this end, I bought the M adapter L to use with some Novoflex macro tubes and my 90mm Macro Elmar. The pictures below are the result of a brief experiment to see how the setup works. I lit the subject with an SF40 flash mounted on a mini tripod and connected to the CL with a Nikon SC-17 flash lead. All images were taken at f5.6 First - Baseline shot taken with the 18-56mm lens... Now, 90mm Macro Elmar and the Novoflex LEMLEI + LEI-M - 10mm Extension
  8. On an elderly US convertible that is used (oddly enough) as an eye-catcher in a public garden in Spain. M240, 60mm Macro Elmarit-R.
  9. I know that there is the excellent APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60mm F2.8 ASPH available for the CL but for an occasional user of a macro lens the price tag in the region of £2000 is a bit of a stretch. I had the opportunity of trying the Laowa Super Macro which is available in various mounts and costs around £370. It is a 60mm f2.8 and due to an ingenious method of moving the internal components can achieve 2:1 magnification for macro without extension tubes or bellows and in normal use can focus to infinity on cameras using a cropped sensor like the CL. It is not made with a Leica mount but I borrowed a Pentax K version and used it with a PK-M adapter and the Leica M adapter L. The Laowa is a manual lens with no electronic connection to the camera but this is hardly a problem for a long term Leica user. At the 2:1 setting it focuses on subjects that are only 5cm from the front of the lens so lighting can present a problem if smaller apertures are desired. The lens seems pretty sharp and the reviews have been favourable. I have been sufficiently impressed to order one. 1:1 magnification 1:2 magnification
  10. And out of date! M240, 60mm Macro Elmarit-R.

  12. Hi I've been procrastinating for a very long time over getting something to work with my M9P for macro work - specifically taking shots of antique/vintage fountain pens I've restored for sale or show. Technically I should be looking at a whole different camera (or digital Visoflex if I had a later M camera) but it would be great to get something working with the outfit I currently have. To start with I have a Visoflex III and I have my M9P and a few lenses that suffice to say don't work well for close up. I'd like to keep this simple and not break the back and I've figure out I'm probably looking at a v2 Elmar-V 65mm f3.5 which is a relatively 'meh' lens specifically built for the Visoflex and won't work directly on the M9 but apparently but does the job. The Macro Elmar-M 90mm f4 has far too many zeros in the price even for a used one and it is indeed a nice lens. Here is where I am: 1. Elmar-V 65/3.5 + 16464 universal focusing mount (OTZFO) + 16471 (OTPRO) ring extension 2. Tele-Elmar-M 135/4 + 16464 universal focusing mount (OTZFO) + 16471 (OTPRO) ring extension Option 1 gives me infinity to 330mm (13") or 330mm - 270mm focusing distance with EF= 2x or 3.4x (apparently) Option 2 gives me infinity to 980mm (38.5") or 980mm - 680mm focusing distance with EF = 1.4x or 2x (apparently) I'm going to say the despite the Tele-Elmar being a significantly more useful lens outside macro work and with a significantly better optical formula its probably going to be a pain to use for my application use case. I could look at getting the bellows adapter for the 135/4 but suspect this is just going to get a little unwieldy and out of hand. Thoughts/experiences?
