  1. Hey guys, I recently acquired a cron and decided to do some test shots with it. Was checking if there was any problems with regards to front or back focus but saw that wide open it wasnt that sharp with regards to the center object that I focused on. I attached a photo of the test I did + a cropped photo of the battery I focused on but was not sharp or there was blurriness on the letters. The shot though was done in my dining table with artificial light, f2 ISO100, 2 sec timer to avoid camera shake cause I dont have a tripod at the moment. I'll definitely shoot during the day when the sun is up to see if theres a difference but just wanted post this and hear your thoughts about this. Maybe the lens needs a calibration or something of the type. Kinda new to Leica lenses as this is my first M lens. Thank you
  2. Hello! This is my first post to this forum and what better way to start it off but with asking for thoughts about a M3 with a 50/2 Dual Range Summicron I have the opportunity to buy locally. I currently have an M6 with a Zeiss 35mm 2.8 that I love, but I have been eyeing an M3 for quite a while. I only got a brief look at it the other day and was able to handle it for about a minute or two before I had to go. The viewfinder seems bright with a little dust and it seems to focus properly ( non of this is 100% since I was only able to spend a little time with it). I cant really remember what shape the metal of the body was in but I do know that the the leatherette will need replaced.I also did not have a chance to inspect internals or shutter speeds. The lens seems good and clear as well, no goggles though. It is a single stroke late model. I will be going back by today to pick up some film and plan to take a better look at it and hopefully take some pictures. The asking price for both together is $600.00, Is this something that I should not pass up? I will post pictures once I take a second look at it. Thanks!
  3. Some time ago I started a blog (www.mbphotox.wordpress.com) about adapted 50mm lenses on my Canon DSLR. A Leica 50 was on my wishlist for half a year and when I finally went out to buy one, I came home with an Elmarit-R 135mm f/2.8 because the Cron had been picked up by another guy right before I arrived at the store. A few months later, I found a great offer online and bought an Elmarit-R 28mm and finally also the Summicron-R 50mm I had been looking for. Having three lenses, I figured "why not get back into shooting film?", and so I started looking for a suitable Leica R body. The SL2 was not an option since all my lenses are R-only, and the R6 was simply too damn expensive. R3 to R5 it was.. I stumbled upon this expensive offer that had been online for weeks, by a guy who wanted to sell his pristine Summicron-R 90mm together with a near-mint Leica R5... I ended up talking him down by 20% and bought the package Loaded a roll of Superia 200 last night and am looking forward to the results. Here are some pics (more can be found on the blog) The baseplate shows slight signs of wear, the brass shines through at some areas, but other than that it's perfect. My lenses, without the 90mm, I've still got to take pictures of that one. But it only arrived 2 days ago.

  5. I am a bit lost with what i have read about the radioactive summis. What is the deal with them? Are they more trouble than they are worth because of the browning? How about resale? Do people avoid them?
  6. I have just posted a new blog post at https://gerrywalden.wordpress.com/2016/09/05/just-one-roll-of-film/ which sabot a roll of film I shot in 2003 using a Leica M6 and (I think) a Summicron f2. It features 9 images in mono of a Mela in Southampton. Please take a look. Gerry
  7. Hallo. Ich suche eine Leitz-Linse Objektiv, Summicron M 35. Nicht neu. ist 800 eur ein akzeptabler Preis? Ich habe eins, gebraucht, mit einem kleinen Flaum im inneren gesehen. der Verkäufer sagt, ist ein Problem. freundliche Grüße Ann
  8. Hallo. Ich bin neu hier, 55 Jahre alt und knipse gut die Hälfte davon mit verschiedenen M- und (früher) R-Leicas. Und falle gleich mal mit einer Frage ins Haus ... :-) Wenn ich auf die IIIf das versenkbare 5cm-Summicron aufschraube, dann ist der Indexstrich für die Entfernungseinstellung nicht genau oben (wenn man die Kamera von oben anschaut), sondern ein paar Grad weiter nach links verschoben. Nein, ich habe das Objektiv nicht wie ein Schmied festgedreht ... Die Fokussierung sitzt jedoch auf dem Punkt - wenn der Fokusring auf Unendlich einrastet, sind auch die Teilbilder präzise verschmolzen. Ist diese Verschiebung des Indexpunktes bei Schraubleicas was normales, kann man das mit einfachen Mitteln beheben, ohne dass man gleich ein paar Hunderter nach Wetzlar überweisen darf? Oder ist das lediglich ein Schönheitsfehler, der nur Ästheten auf den Keks geht?
  9. Hello all, I just want to point out a fraudulent ebay scam involving my ad, here, in the "Buy & Sell" section: to my utter disgust I've just found today a semi-complete duplication of my ad on ebay (Item nr: 152831268092) by seller "loganlemsley58". He copied all the pictures and a semi-identical description of my item that I listed here five days ago. I've reported the scam to ebay and hope they'll take it out. It really is astonishing how crude these people operate. Kind regards, Horea
  10. Dear Friends: In the late 80's (when I was a kid) my father taught me how to use the Leica R4. I use the M-system these days but for last few weeks I have been wanting to make a comeback to film photography. I recently bought a used R4 with Summicron-R 50 mm lens. The lens looks great (I tested on Leica M10 with adapter). However, when I got the negatives developed and scanned, something strange showed up in the photographs. I am attaching a few examples. Can someone with an experienced eye help me figure out what is going on so that I can fix this problem! Your help is appreciated.
  11. Hi folks, I was in the Leica store to check out the newly released SL Summicron 90 + 75 mm lenses; they are quite nice and handling is superb. I was asking the sales rep about the dimensions of the later to be released 50 and 35 mm lenses and he answered that they would basically share the same dimensions in order to have a "uniform user experience". For me, this is a little bit of a bummer, as I think that size does matter, also on a pro system. How come, that a 50 mm and 35 mm f2 are 10 x 7 cm large? I would much appreciate, if the lenses would be smaller (shorter), this would make the SL much more usable as a travel and street camera. Ideally, they could share the same 67 mm filter threat, but be much shorter, say 5 cm. What do others think?
  12. Hallo zusammen, da mir ein Leica Macro-Adapter-M zu teuer ist, einfache Nahlinsen aber zu unscharf sind, habe ich mir einen Achromaten gekauft mit 5 Dioptrien. Ich fand das fokusieren über Kontrastkanten im LV-Modus aber zu ungenau und zu schwer zu erkennen. Mit der 5-fach Lupe im LV-Modus jedoch kam ich gut zurecht. Anbei eine Aufnahme im Makro-Modus und Blende 5.6, wobei ich den geringen Schärfentiefebereich sehr interessant finde, da der Hintergrund sehr schön weichgezeichnet ist. Viele Grüße, Andreas.
  13. Hallo zusammen, da hier und da schon einmal nach dem Puts-Kolumnen für die R-Objekive gefragt wird, möchte ich diese hier zusammenhängend veröffentlichen. Die Kolumnen wurden damals bei Leica frei veröffentlicht, sind jedoch heute nicht mehr verfügbar. Es handelt sich hier um insgesamt 17 .pdf Dateien die aufgrund ihrer Größe nicht in einen Beitrag passen. Gruß Thomas
  14. Jetzt da Leica APO-Summicron-SL 1:2/75 ASPH. veröffentlich wurde, darf ich erste Erfahrungen veröffentlichen. Ich durfte es vorab schon einmal ausprobieren und bin schwer begeistert was hier Leica wieder vom Stapel gelassen hat. Meinen ersten Eindruck kann man hier nachlesen. https://norbertwindecker.blogspot.com/2018/01/erfahrungsbericht-test-review-leica-apo.html
  15. Hallo zusammen, Erst einmal einen herzlichen Gruß zum Jahresende ins Forum, ich bin neu hier und habe ein Problem. Ich habe mir über Ebay Kleinanzeigen ein vom Zustand her hervorragendes Summicron-R gekauft. Es handelt sich um die letzte Version vor ROM, Made in Canada #3511846. Leider liefert es sowohl bei der R7 als auch der R5 in jedem Belichtungsmodus, außer in manuell, eine Störungsmeldung durch blinkende LED im Sucher. Der Verkäufer benutzte es an einer spiegellosen Kamera und hatte daher das Problem nicht. Blende auf kleinstem Wert und Plus/Minus Korrektur sind es nicht. Wenn ich bei gleicher Kameraeinstellungen ein anderes Objektiv aufsetze habe ich den Fehler nicht. Hat jemand eine Idee was das sein könnte? Vorweg schon mal vielen Dank Kurt
  16. Fotografiere mehrheitlich Landsachaften. Nun möchte ich ein 28mm Objektiv anschaffen. Die Frage ist welches? Elmarit oder Summicron. Ich denke ich mehme das mit dem besseren Mikrokontast. Gibt es hier Unterschiede?
