  1. We already have a very extensive 'Mandler Magic' topic, but as much I am keen on Mandler's signature look and his contribution to the "Leica glow", there is another very distinguished gentleman in the 'House of Leica' that as a leader of Leica's optical design team since 2002 gave us a bunch of new high performance M-Lenses and pushed the terms FLE, ASPH and APO towards modern Leica perfection. He was the guy that had the balls to say Dr. Mandler's 75mm Summilux 1.4 was his *least* favorite design and went on to "Make Summilux great again" - all the way down to 21mm. Show us some of the "cli
  2. Hi Guys, Am fairly new to Leica (6 months in) and I would like to seek your advice on which 35mm lens to get. I currently use a M240 body with a 60mm F1.2 Konica Hexanon and a 50mm Summicron APO. I am looking to add a 35mm lens to compliment my existing collection (and will be looking at add a 28mm Elmarit when the new one releases end of the month). I am considering the follow: 35 Summilux Pre-ASPH 35 Summicron Pre-ASPH Version 1 35 Summicron Pre-ASPH Version 4 35 Summicron ASPH (2016 edition) After doing some extensive research, I feel like the 3 Pre-ASPH lens may be a better
  3. I am curious about different peoples opinion about how effective are Leica's slide-out hoods. I have seen conflicting posts for some time. As an example one person thinks the 75mm APO-Summicron is optically an excellent lens, except the lens hood is ineffective so the lens is a poor design. Another thinks the lens hood on the same lens is just fine. I know I am talking about a variety of lenses over several generations. But I have a variety of lenses from several generations. In some cases I have purchased additional hoods from third parties, such as from Mr. Overgaard, and some I have com

    Nature's Connections

    Leica T + 90mm summicron apo asph ISO 200, f2, 1/250 "Nature's Connections"
  5. I have added M240 + APO 50mm setup in my studio photography workflow (in parallel with Hasselblad H4D-50 which is my main camera) and all I can say is I’m amazed with the quality and resolution of this lens. Contrast, sharpness and clarity on the glass and dynamic range of M240 sensor is very impressive! I have shot this photo with M240 + APO 50mm + Broncolor Para 88 with grid (main light) + Broncolor Grafit A4 pack + Elinchrom Octa Light Bank (fill light). Post process with Photoshop and Lightroom. Thanks!
  6. I found a Black-tailed Hare ("Jackrabbit") this morning in Yolo County California. Technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R, shoulder stock & monopod. All comments welcome.
  7. hallo allerseits, auf die gefahr hin, das sich alteingesessene leicaner und forumisten wieder über die unwissenheit und dreistigkeit der "neulinge" aufregen, stelle ich meine frage. was ist der unterschied zwischen normalen objektiven und jenen mit dem zusatz apo, außer das letztere wohl entschieden neuer und um etwa den faktor 5 (gefühlt) teurer sind? ich lasse mich auch gerne auf alte links verweisen - ich war nicht ganz in der lage mich auf einen schlag durch das ganze leicalatein dieses forums zu schlagen wer ist so nett und führt mich ein bissl ins leicanersein ein?
  8. The California Foundation for Birds of Prey held an Open House yesterday, where several non-releasable birds were on display. Among them was Cleopatra, a young female Golden Eagle who was found near death by a Sacramento-area rancher. Cleopatra had contracted West Nile virus (thus the name) and though she is now fully capable of flight, she would not survive in the wild because the virus led to neurological damage which prevents her from seeing clearly at close distances. The first several months of captivity were terrifying for Cleopatra. She paniced at any nearby movement and it w
  9. Hello fellow R users, I'm a facing a little dilemma and decided to count on your experiences to make a decision, if you don't mind. Basically, I am looking for a mid-range tele lens to use in small valleys especially. But I'm living in a big city and remain there most of times, though... So I came across two classifieds selling these lenses at quite a good price. Here's my current state of reflection: APO 280/4 Pros : legendary quality, APO will help for difficult lighting conditions I guess. A bit lighter than the VE. Slightly brighter than the VE (well, it's more of an a
  10. A tiny bit of fluff, more voice than flesh & bone: This bird was one of hundreds in the Yolo Bypass wildlife area between Sacramento and Davis. The song is the bird's territorial defense; a highly variable song, a neighboring wren will often repeat specific riffs of his neighbor's song. technical stuff: Leica R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO + 2x APO-Extender-R, shoulder stock & monopod. All comments welcome.
  11. The Oak Titmouse is a member of family Paridae which inludes Chickadees and Tits (I didn't name them, I'm just the messenger!). The Oak Titmouse is primarily a California resident, with a few populations in Baja California to the south and Oregon in the north. The Oak Titmouse, like all Paridae, are the definition of the word kinetic. As its name implies it's preferred habitat is oak woodlands, where they nest in a tree cavity; this morning I found a pair bringing breakfast to the kids: technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO + 2x APO-Extender-R. All comments welcome.
  12. The Davis (California) Wetlands is part wastewater treatment facility, part wildlife habitat... I chose to emphasize the wildlife habitat last week In order of appearance, Least Sandpiper, Western Sandpiper, and Long-billed Dowitcher x2. All photos: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO, 2x APO-Extender-R, monopod & shoulder stock. All comments welcome.
  13. I had my heart set on getting a used Noctilux 50MM f/0.95, but I also found a used Noctilux 75MM f1.25. I wanted the 50 because I regret selling my Summilux ASPH 50MM - I really miss that dreamy/creamy look! The 50 Noctilux could be a suitable replacement, with an extra stop to boot! The "more usable" focal length is another plus. On the other hand, the 75 is appealing to me because it is a more modern lens with less CA/purple fringing, less vignetting, and a sharper look. I also don't have any 75MM yet. I shoot a lot of portraiture, but admittedly it's more environmental, so not tot
