  1. Hi all, a while ago I've bought a used Elmarit-M 90mm (latest version) for which I found a few days ago by accident that the aperture blades do not fully disappear when the lens is used wide open. Consequently, the bokeh balls aren't circular, but have a more "saw blade"-like shape. If I turn the aperture ring beyond 2.8, which is possible by a tiny bit, the blades retract a bit more, but never completely (cp. attached images). As I wasn't sure whether this is by design or a defect, I have contacted Leica Support and they tell me that this is the normal behaviour, but offer a CLA fo
  2. I am experiencing an unfortunate problem with my APO-Summicron 90mm. After a brief portrait session at the office, I left the lens at the camera, over a desk. I almost always use it wide open and occasionally at f/5.6, but this time I went for f/16. When I returned to put it back to the leather case I noticed that the aperture ring was totally loose. It’s now spinning 360 degrees and the aperture blades don’t move at all. I always felt that the ring was too soft for my taste. I’d prefer it to be stiffer. But I never felt that there was a problem. In fact, the lens is still in very good shape a
  3. Hi, I'm looking at getting a Summitar and was wondering whether anybody can shed light on the two variants, namely the round aperture bladed version approx. pre 1950 and the later type with the hexagonal arranged aperture. Generally the latter version seems to be a little less expensive and less sought after if my observations are correct. Both lenses opened at f2 there is clearly no difference in aperture shape but any smaller setting then does the hexagonal opening perhaps provide a little less appealing bokah for instance? Or perhaps there may be other discernible differences? Thanks in
  4. Hello, All! Have just consolidated 30 years of Rollei, Contax, Tachihara, Canon and Nikon gear into an M8.2, a Summicron 50, an Elmarit 28 and a Preorder on an M. My first trip with the 8.2 has given me confidence my 2 years of soul searching has resulted in the right decision, but also reminds me I have new learning curves to conquer. With the equipment choice made, I have the workflow issues to decide and can surely use some experieinced guidance. I'm an iMac user who has defaulted to iPhoto and Aperture in the past for convenience, but feel the time has come to make a considered choice
  5. I 'm using my dlux-6 with Apple Aperture and i 'm having an issue deleting my photos from the SD. After copying my photos to the program, Aperture asks me if i want to delete them and eject the disk. I confirm but nothing happens:confused:. The only way is to delete/format the SD from within the camera (annoying)... Today i noticed that i don't have permission rights on any SD i connect with the camera (read only) but from a card reader i have no problem . I tried various solutions but nothing yet. Anybody with Dlux6 and OSX can confirm this? Thanks
  6. Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but how does the M determine the aperture used for a photo? The coding tells it maximum aperture of a lens but there is no linkage to tell the camera what aperture you set the lens to. My guess (or rather how I would design such a system) would be to have a secondary meter in the optical eyepiece which determines the EV of the scene and comparison of this to what the meter reading the reflection of the shutter will tell you how much you have stopped down. thanks,
  7. Werte Gemeinde, als M-Neuling und RAW Fotograf würde mich mal Euer Vorgehen beim Post-Processing mit Aperture interessieren. Was macht ihr, wie korrigiert ihr? Bin neugierig und gespannt, ich stell hier bisher irgendwie recht planlos rum.... Danke.

  9. Dear Leica fans, I'm new to Leica and to this forum. And I don't understand too much about photography in general either. So please be gentle? From my new D-Lux 4's manual I get that in A-mode I can choose between different aperture-settings with the up and down arrow's. In practice all I can choose is the lighting-setting. There's an aperture-value of f2.2 projected on the screen. I'd like to take some pictures with a sharp subject and faded background. Who can explain to me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks very much, Blew
  10. Hi, Just got my first Leica (DL4) and I'm loving it! However, I can't seem to change settings on Aperture, S or M, no matter what I do. While it was so easy changing those settings on my Nikon DSLRs, the manual on DL4 says the down (Fn) and up arrows should let me change settings if I'm on A, S, or M modes. My Fn button is currently set to do a Preview, I tried disabling that as I figured it might have been the case. I mean what's the point of having these features available on my camera and I don't seem to have control of my settings which is really funny. I should have just bought a

  12. Just got set up with my new X1 and very excited. I am an existing Aperture user but also took advantage to download the free edition of Adobe Lightroom courtesy of the kind folks at Leica. Just wondering what people's views are in terms of which is the preferred software for working with the X1's RAW images? Should I stick with Aperture or switch to Lightroom?
  13. Hi everybody! First of all, if this is the wrong forum for a repair-type question, please forgive a newbie and point me in the right direction... So: I just got my first Leica this past weekend - a 1956 M3, DS converted to SS. Seems to work fine so far. Anyway, the seller included an extra lens for free because it's not fully functional... It's a screw-mount Elmar 9cm 1:4 (90mm f/4), non-collapsable. It seems to be in mostly decent shape except that the aperture ring doesn't adjust the aperture. It's stuck most of the way open, and the ring just rotates without changing the opening
  14. Hi there, I bought a 50mm collapsible Summicron #116.... last week. The lens is in a very good condition. However, after shooting with it today I realized that the aperture ring is just a bit to stiff to turn nicely while looking throuhg the viewfinder. I did a quick search on the web for some repair instructions but couldn't find any. Does somebody know what to do to relube the aperture ring? By the way, do all of the 50mm Crons have such a long focus throw (I do only have the 35mm Ver. IV for comparison). One more thing I noticed is that the aperture index mark of the lens is
  15. I just installed Mac OSX update 10.6.5 and now I can open LX5 .RW2 files directly in Aperture and all other Mac apps that use the Apple system RAW decoder. I bet these same apps will now open D-Lux5 RAW files as well.
  16. Hi Would anyone recommend what is the "sweet spot" aperture of the VARIO-SUMMICRON 5.1 - 19.2mm f/2 - 3.3 lens? Seems Dlux 4 sharpest aperture was f/4.5 but on Dlux5, I've tried f/4.5 - f/5.6 without noticing subtle differences. What have folks found? best
  17. On your Mac, go to Software Update and download the latest patches. The App store is included in the 10.6.6 patch (am assuming in a 10.5.x patch too). Computer will restart. New icon on Dashboard and in the Apple menu for the App Store. Hoping interesting features start to appear for say Aperture.
  18. Hi everyone, Does anyone of you know about a good training programme (a course, weekend seminar, workshop) to familiarize oneself with the whole-workflow use of Apple Aperture 2? I've got the official Apple course as a book and CD-ROM and I know how to use the tutorials on the Apple website. However, I think to really get it work for me I need some face to face teaching by (an) experienced instructor(s). I'm located in The Netherlands, close to the D/NL border. Location could be one of the adjacent countries like D, NL, B, L, DK, GB, A, CH; language preferably German, English or D
  19. Dear dlux 4 enthousiasts, I prefer taking my pictures with aperture priority (control the depth of field). But I understand you have to set the aperture on the screen of the camera using the buttons. If you use the viewfinder with the screen turned off, can you only shoot in auto mode? Is there a way to set the aperture then? regards,
  20. Hallo, ich selber habe einen Mac und mich würde interessieren, welche Bildbearbeitungssoftware der "engagierte Hobbyfotograf" mit seiner M8/M8.2 verwendet. Das mitgelieferte CaptureOne oder andere Software? Welche Erfahrungen habt ihr gemacht? Lohnt sich Aperture oder Lightroom oder anderes oder ist das eher was für den Profi? Ich selber komme hauptsächlich im Urlaub oder seltenerweise an Wochenenden zum Fotografieren, meistens eben Familie, Urlaub und Spaziergänge in Stadt und Land... Gruß, govea
