  1. Running backwards, Drive on continuous medium, Shutter speed priority. 24/90 at 24. Some frames show vignetting, others don't. Thoughts?
  2. Hi, I came across this blog post about the SL in cold conditions and I thought it was a nice read, very encouraging indeed. http://scenictraverse.com/blog/2016/1/26/review-how-does-the-leica-sl-like-the-cold
  3. Habe bislang immer nur Metz-Blitze benutzt. Aber von meinem neuen Leica-Blitz SF40 (nicht von Metz) bin ich begeistert. Der Kleine hier hat einen Metallfuß,der, wenn er aufgesteckt wird, einrastet, und super leicht mit einer Hand wieder abgenommen werden kann. Er kann TTL und Highspeed, sein Motorzoom geht von 24 - 105mm, hat ein 9-stufiges Videolicht, der Reflektor kann senkrecht gestellt werden und auch um 180 Grad gedreht werden. Und toll ist auch, ich muss nicht mit 3 Händen irgendwelche Menüs auf einem Monitor durchsuchen; hier gibt es auf der Rückseite 2 analoge Drehräder! P.S. Best.
  4. I have owned a Leica camera since the introduction of the M9, and since then, each and every iteration of the M series, excluding limited editions. In late October, I purchased the SL, along with the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90. Initially, I shot solely with the Vario-Elmarit on the SL, but I soon got the urge to try my assortment of M lenses, and so I purchased the Leica M-Adapter T, and began using primarily the 50 Lux and the 90 Cron, on the SL. Although I have become fairly adept at rangefinder focusing, the EVF focusing experience with the SL was truly amazing. Focus magnification and
  5. Hallo liebe Leica Freunde, mich interessiert ganz besonders, wie sich M-Objektive an der SL machen, ganz besonders natürlich Weitwinkel Linsen bei offener Blende. Ich denke über die Anschaffung einer SL nach und würde gerne meine vorhanden Objektive daran benutzen. Wie sind also Eure Erfahrungen? Viele Grüße an das Forum, Holger
  6. PROFIFOTO 3/16 wird am 24.2.16 eine 20 seitige Sonderbeilage zum SL-System im Heft haben.
  7. Wer kann mir denn erzählen wie ich Auto-ISO einschalte ohne dabei auch die Verschlusszeitbegrenzung aktiv zu haben? Ich möchte z.B. die ISO-Begrenzung zwischen 100 und 3200 festlegen, aber keine Tv begrenzen. VG Burkhard
  8. Werte Forumsmitglieder, Da ich im Internet keine detailreichen Landschaftsbilder in voller Auflösung oder gar DNG Format finde, wende ich mich an euch, und zwar an alle welche eventuell die D800 und SL besitzen. Ich bin Landschaftsfotograf und als solcher sehr interessiert an feiner Detailauflösung meiner Motive, welches mir eine D800 (24-70mm) annähernd bieten kann. Bei der SL mit weniger Auflösung, aber besserer Optik (24-90mm) bin ich mir nicht sicher ob das eine Steigerung der Bildqualität wäre, da mich die Kamera auf Grund der Möglichkeit M-Objektive zu verwenden aber doch r
  9. I just updated my SL yesterday to the new firmware 2.1 with no issues during the installation. Looks like I sold my house and am going to sell some furniture so I grabbed the SL w/24-90 lens and a pw to use with my sb900 flashes. The camera I normally leave in AFC, Static, field for focusing unless I'm walking around downtown and sometimes change to face recognition which is like a dynamic focusing. When trying to focus yesterday, I had sufficient ambient light and used the flash for fill, the camera would hunt like crazy trying to get a lock. It is also locking focus but nearby objects
  10. Liebe LFB Freunde, hiermit laden wir Euch herzlich zu unserem "Sommer - Grillfest" am 16.07.2016 ab 17:00 Uhr ein und damit zum 3. LFB - Treffen 2016. Wir treffen uns am Samstag bei Andreas in Marienfelde. Themen, Vorträge oder Überraschungsgäste haben wir nicht geplant. Wir wünschen uns, dass Ihr gute Laune mitbringt, reden über dies und das und hoffen, dass Petrus mit uns ist. Bei schlechtem Wetter haben wir die Möglichkeit uns im Haus aufzuhalten - somit findet das Treffen in jedem Fall statt. Da dieses Treffen ein "Sommer - Grillfest" im Freien ist, laden wir auch he
  11. I had the chance to look at the new SL today and here are my thoughts, if anyone is interested! The first impression - even for someone who uses a DSLR - is that the body and lens are big, the lens particularly so. It's a very hefty lump of metal and glass. I think the 'thinness' of the body (compared to a DSLR) actually makes it feel bigger, due to the body/lens balance. The focus/zoom rings on the lens have a nice weighty and smooth feel to them. Very Leica-like. I do wonder though, why Leica couldn't make a lens with a constant f2.8 aperture at the size it is. I have sa
  12. 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
  13. Andreas has a great summary of the SL lenses, but the dimensions/weight section of the table is blank. Does anyone know these figures, particularly the 90-280? I'm wondering how it compares to my Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VRII. Apologies if this info is available. I have had a quick look through the Leica site and here, to no avail.

    Last rays from the sun falling in sideways from the window. Leica SL / 80 Lux-R.
  15. Headed on safari in a few weeks. Has anyone gone on one With the SL and the 90-280? Did you find that it was enough for you or did you have other lenses/bodies that you used more? I am worried that the 280 isn't enough and that the 24mp isn't enough for landscape/safari photos. Thank you in advance for your comments!
  16. Is early days I realise, but I wonder if we could please have a thread devoted to third party lens performance on the SL please. In my case I would be interested in experiences with Zeiss F mount lenses (ZF/.2), particularly the 1.4/55 Otus, 1.4/85 Otus, and 2/135 Apo-Sonnar. But I also have a couple of C/Y lenses. I'm sure there are others here interested, as well as those with Canon and Nikkor glass. If I end up with and SL I will report first hand, but I haven't decided to pull the trigger yet (I had wished for higher resolution and IBIS), but there is a lot in this camera that
  17. (Can I ask the moderators to please PIN this thread so it can stay active for a few months). I thought I'd start a thread of firmware improvement suggestions for the Leica SL. When we have sufficient content, we can send the list to Leica who might consider them for a future update. With a little bit of self-imposed discipline, we might get a useful thread that can influence future firmware updates. So, some ground rules for this thread: 1. Only firmware improvement suggestions please 2. Please don't debate each suggestion, filling the thread up with pros and cons (start a separa
  18. I went to pick up my order at dealership and to my dismay noticed a dust spec inside EVF;IDealer plan to send it back to leica as a defective item. I thought leica has now a grip on QC.
  19. Hi, picked up my new SL yesterday. Went through the manual to figure out to get the AF to work for almost an hour now. But it won't work. The focus ring on the lens has simply no effect at all, I tried all possible combinations, the lens will not focus. Pressing the shutter half way down has no effect either. Any idea? Had anybody similar issues? Firmware is 1.1

  21. Finally winter has come to Stockholm after an exceptionally warm christmas and new year. The sun was shining and I took the SL for a walk. With thermo-glowed there was no problem operating the SL. I now appreciate the placement and heft of the on-off lever being an on-offer. The other buttons were also workable. Thankful for their size. And my hands kept warm. I did not take any precautions with the battery. It was not fully charged and I did not hold the hand-grip to keep it warm. The camera hung on the strap around my neck. And the SL did function as usual. No temperature related pro
  22. I would know how this particular lens behaves with the SL. Is there a profile available for correcting the geometric distortions? Thanks, Manolo
  23. Although I've been considering the SL, I've been put back by the realization that it seems that focusing M lenses on the SL will not be a straight forward action. Based on what I read in Reid Reviews (and another source I don't now recall), since the M lenses are designed for a mechanical finder, and not for focusing Through The Lens, they lack auto aperture stop down (AASD - which is what every SLR has, as well as the native lenses for the SL). So the implication seems to be that in order to focus well an M lenses, you will need have your lens wide open to focus and then re-adjust apertur

  25. Watching these conversations about the Leica SL have been instructive and entertaining. How a product launch can release so much passion is beyond me. It's a product. It might succeed. It might fail. The company made its bet and now will see how it fairs in the market. Being a brand new product, the company owes no allegiance to existing customers of any of their other product ranges. So there's no need for the passion. You either like it or you don't. A lot of the discussions seem to revolve around one Question: who are the target customers for this new range? Answer: Me. A
