  1. Back then, at the end of R camera and lens production, we were promised a "new" R camera to replace that well-loved camera and its lenses. The SL can mount R lenses and it can help you focus a MF R lens with Live View and the joy stick enlargement. But mounting an R lens on an SL is only half of providing an equivalent R camera. The MF experience is a two-fold hand and eye operation: focusing the lens by hand AND using a split-field viewfinder to focus it. That latter step is not now available for the SL, but could be furnished very simply. In AF mode, the SL sensor gets light through the mounted AF lens, detects the degree of un-focus (the error signal), and issues commands to the lens's motor to focus it. With a MF lens attached, everything is the same except that the commands have no where to go and are not used. To me there is a simple way to use that degree of un-focus (the error signal) with a MF lens. Let it drive a computer- generated image of a split-field viewfinder. As the MF lens is focused by hand, in lieu of a motor, the state of focus would be displayed as if there was a real, split-field optical viewfinder in use. Thus the eye-hand manual focus of the R camera would be preserved in the SL, or other AF cameras that can mount a MF lens. Think about it this way: Simply replace the motor focusing an AF lens with a hand focusing a MF lens, guided by a synthetic computer-generated split-level display in the Electronic View Finder. With this bit of digital skullduggery, any AF camera with an EVF which can mount a MF lens can be used exactly like any MF camera with a split-field rangefinder. I hope Leica will provide this feature in the near future so that R lens fans can use their MF lenses with an SL body just the way they used them on an R camera body.
  2. Hi What are your Top 5 Favourite lenses? Any and all lenses.
  3. Infrequent visitor to this site but now and then I get the urge to pickup my R Camera and do film again. Last I asked this forum I was encouraged to do so and you all helped me find out that I needed new seals as I got false light on my film. I got the seals and then promptly moved out of country. I.e. It sitting there waiting for me to pick it up again and start doing something with it. I have a R3 bought new in 1976, and a R4 bought new by my uncle I don't know when. So where is the question you might ask, sorry for the long intro, and it will have to wait for yet another sentence. My uncle is asking me to help him selling his M7 gear, 4 lenses, and in this regard I looked under the M Cameras forum and saw some wonderful B/W photos by a gent in England, and that spurred me on to get going again. I had a look into eBay and a Swiss equivalent and got interested in buying a R9, and finally the question, what lenses can I use on it and what do I have???? My equipment is in the US and I'm here in Switzerland for yet another week before I can look at my 4 R Lenses but there are talk about 3 cam, and maybe other, as well as ROM Etc how do I check if my Lenses are 3 cam or, and can they be used on the R9? And what do I loose if not? Sorry for the long post but I'm re-getting the Leica bug
  4. Dear all, We have put an order on the XT1. Anyone who is using Leica R lenses on Fuji cameras? Any good reviews and / or user shots out there? We are particularly interested in Macro lenses as the 100/4. Best, Corrado & Rina
  5. Hi there.... I have 2 R lenses - Elmarit R 2.8/35 & Summicron 2/50 and would like to use these on a digital body with the appropriate adaptor. I'm resigned to the fact that Leica doesn't see fit to offer a solution - there must be many enthusiasts in this position. Have looked at Lumix G1, Olympus Pen as small bodies (not bulky DSLR) with recognised quality. My question is regarding the manual features of these lenses on new 'Auto/Manual' digitals. For example - focusing - does the camera recognise the lens focus? or is it all guesswork? The speed/aperture - does the lens change the camera or does the user change the change the camera to match the lens, or the lens to match the camera etc etc. Any assistance appreciated as it seems impossible to match R lenses with M cameras so I have to look elsewhere - bugger! thanks in advance!
