  1. Yodobashi Camera's top ten best-selling interchangeable lens digital cameras for the first half of November 2022 have been posted on CAPA CAMERA WEB. CAPA CAMERA WEBに、ヨドバシカメラの2022年11月上期のレンズ交換式デジタルカメラの売れ筋ベストテンが掲載されています。 >>Data collection period: November 1st to November 15th, 2022 データ集計期間 : 2022年11月1日~11月15日 第1位 ニコン Z 9 ボディ 第2位 ソニー α7 IV ボディ 第3位 キヤノン EOS R6 ボディ 第4位 キヤノン EOS R5 ボディ 第5位  ソニー α6400 ダブルズームレンズキット 第6位 ソニー α7S III ボディ 第7位 キヤノン EOS R7 ボディ 第8位 ソニー FX30 ボディ 第9位 ソニー α7 IV ズームレンズキット 第10位 ライカ M11 ボディ ライカのレンジファインダー機「ライカ M11」がトップ10入りを果たした。ライカブティックがあるヨドバシカメラならではの結果といえよう。 >>Leica's rangefinder "Leica M11" entered the top 10.

  2. 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 appeals, including it looking like a good tool for some R glass I have. So, anyone with an SL and experience with third party lenses, please share your experiences. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi all! I have been testing the Commlite CM-EF-L autofocus adapter with several Canon EF lenses on my Leica CL, and I am glad to report that it works. As expected, AF-C and focus tracking is not supported, but the AF-S works reasonably well. Focusing speed and precision with most lenses is at almost native T/TL lenses level. So: -AF-S works (no tracking). Touch AF also works. -IS with Canon stabilized lenses works. -EXIF data is transferred correctly to the files, save for the F/1.2 that is reported as F/1.3 (something I had already seen with other third party AF adapters on Sony cameras). I used A and M modes, on Firmware 4.0. Adapter firmware is upgradeable via an USB port on the adapter itself. There are no new FW listed on Commlite’s site, and it worked right out of the box. The lenses that I tested, and worked, so far are: 14/2.8L-II, 16-35/4L-IS, 24/2.8 IS, 24/1.4L-II, 40/2.8 STM, 50/1.2L, 50/2.5 compact macro (with and without the Lifesize 1:1 converter), 85/1.2L-II and 100/2 USM. The only glitch I have experienced is that Battery level is not correctly reported to the camera, and the first time I mounted the adapter on the CL, I got a warning message about the “Camera possibly not displaying reliable battery charge levels with this lens” that did not repeat. In fact, after a hundred exposures with different lenses, the battery appeared as depleted. The workaround I found was shutting down the camera, taking off the battery, mount a native TL lens, put again the battery in and the charge was there again, correctly reported at about 2 / 3. During next week I will try to test the adapter with more Canon FF lenses, and EF-S APSc lenses. I am very interested to see how the compact EF-S 10/18 zoom and EF-S pancake 24/2.8 perform on the CL. So, after all the let down expectatives we CL users held on the MC-21 adapter by Sigma, I am glad to share that there’s still a light on the path to use many more lenses options!

  5. Met with a friend a few weeks ago and brought my Summicron-R 90mm f/2 along. Unfortunately, I only used the Canon 85L and the Nikkor 58G after the first few shots with the Leitz, even though they turned out to be amazing.. I always process both colour and monochrome versions when I shoot portraits. Found that most of my students prefer colour whereas I myself like the monochromes better. Meet Kathi, a former student of mine and one of my favourite models She's simply amazing. The streets around us were buzzing with tourists and people staring at us. Some came over asking what we were doing. An older man even apporached me to tell me that I should swap to Sony to get a smaller, lighter camera. Then one man (in his sixties) told me that it wasn't hard to get good pictures of such a pretty girl. Through all that, Kathi remained perfectly relaxed and had loads of fun. (Click on the images to head to my flickr stream if you want to see some more of the pics we shot that day.) I really love the 90mm and am keeping my Canon 1Ds mainly so that I can keep shooting portraits with it
  6. Hallo! Ist da jemand unter Euch, der für Scannen von SW-Negativen den Canon CanoScan 9950F im erweiterten Modus benutzt? Ein Problem taucht immer wieder auf. Sofern Negative von mir korrekt belichtet und dann auch korrekt entwickelt worden sind, bewährt sich das Gerät hervorragend. Brauche ich aber eine Korrektur (Belichtung, Kontrast usw) durchzuführen, dann wirds schon hoffnungslos problematisch. Kurz und bündig: ich mach den Vorschau von allen 5 Negativstreifen. Im Vorschaufeld sehen die Miniaturen meistens gar nicht schlecht aus.(Bild 1) Würde ich sagen, wenn Helligkeit, Kontrast, usw. im Endeffekt dem entsprechen würde, was in der Vorschauphase zu sehen ist, hätte ich gegen das Gerät gar nix auszsusetzten. Aber nachdem ich das Vorschaubild gescannt habe, sieht das zu speicherne Bild dermaßen schrecklich aus, dass es keinen Sinn hat, es zu speichern. So versuche ich an der Belichtungskurve eigniges zu verbessern. Das Vorschaubild wirds dabei heller, einfach besser (Bild 2). Dann los mit dem Scannen, worauf es sich heraustellt, dass alle diese Einstellungen, die ich an der Kurve durchgeführt habe, gar nicht übernommen worden sind, bzw. das Bild sieht noch dunkler aus.(Bild 3) Als hätte ich an der Kurve gar nix hantiert. Und ja, jede Änderung an der Kurve bestätige ich natürlich mit der Taste "Bestätigt die entgültigen Ausgabe Einstellungen". Аber es hilft natürlich nicht. Habt ihr änhliche Erfahrungen?
  7. Who will solve this one? I have attached an interesting photo of Winogrand working, taken by photographer Tod Papageorge in 1967. The problem is as follows: Winogrand is using two Leicas (I assume) - up to his eye is one with a Canon 35mm f/1.8 attached. Down towards his left hip is another camera with a mystery lens. Which one is it? As Papageorge took this picture, Winogrand had just finished taking one of his most famous photographs. Seemingly with a 35mm Canon (not the well known 28mm he often used, and perhaps even made famous). Also of interest, I have actually seen his contact print. The roll starts off in London, then BOOM, first strike back in Central Park gives an iconic photo. This should be fun!
  8. Went out to test newly acquired Canon Ltm 50mm 1.4 Version II. What an incredible lens ! So much character wide open, pretty sharp as well. Very strong stepped down. Great contrast all the way. Best 200$ cdn spent in the last few months. Strongly recommend it to whoever is looking for affordable 50mm option and wants it to have "balls" Love it.

  10. Hi, this Canon Serenar 100mm f/4 lens is not M39 (LTM) lens mount, like most are. It has four flanges, but no external threads. Is it M mount? Something for cinematography? Thanks! (non-Leica owner trying to get to the bottom of this mystery)
  11. However, whereas the Canon F-1 Olive Drab retired long ago, the new Leica Reporter will be used...
  12. What are your thoughts on Leica rangefinder/viewfinders vs other cameras? I am currently using a Canon Canonet that I recently purchased. I am interested in purchasing a Leica, but am worried that the rangefinder/viewfinder might be too hard (squinty) for me to use? I do wear glasses. Mahalo!
  13. Dear ALL, I am posting this thread here seeking your suggestion. I am going to Alaska for a month from August-Sept. I do have both Canon (800/5.6 IS, and other Canon lenses, Canon latest Body) and also Leica DMR+R9 and Leica Modul system 400/2.8, may get 1.4X or 2X Modul making my system 800/5.6 and do have other R lenses too. I am in dilema whether to bring the Leica or Canon system with me thinking that Leica would be better in terms of sharpness and color saturation but Canon is AF, faster motor, IS. Also the charge on Battery for DMR does not last long. Would be great to hear your experience and thought. Thanking you all and looking forward to hearing from you.
  14. Hallo zusammen, ich habe seit kurzen zusätzlich zu meiner R9 mit DMR eine Canon 5D MarkII, an der ich gern meine R Objektive verwenden möchte. Das 19mm F2.8 Elmarit-R (Version 2) scheint ja nur nach Umbau benutzbar zu sein, aber mein Macro-Elmarit-R 2,8/60 (Ser. 3337...) müßte doch mit einem Novoflex-Adapter gehen, oder? Und das Summilux R 1,4/50 (Ser. 3077...), sowie ein Vario-Elmarit-R 4/70-210? Vielen Dank schon mal! Luise
  15. Pressetext: Mit der Ausstellung SOUNDS OF VIENNA feiert die Leica Galerie Wien einen der Großen der Österreichischen Fotografie: Franz Hubmann, der heuer am 2. Oktober einhundert Jahre alt geworden wäre. Das Fotomuseum WestLicht hatte vor genau zehn Jahren, zum neunzigsten Geburtstag des Fotografen, seine letzte große Wiener Ausstellung zu Lebzeiten ausgerichtet. Link: Sounds of Vienna / 100 Jahre Franz Hubmann - Leica Store Wien Wenn man das Hubmanns Selbstportrait näher betrachtet,ist erkenntlich,dass auf der Leica M eine Canon-Linse Anwendung findet. Das war mir bisher neu! Frage an die Oldtimer unter den Forenten: Das Foto entstand um ca. 1960. Wurden um diese Zeit herum auch von Canon Linsen hergestellt die an der M-Kamera Verwendung fanden?? Gab es damals das M-Bajonett noch nicht?? Kam das erst viel später?? Danke für die Rückmeldungen zu diesem Thema! Walter
  16. Hi folks, I have been thinking about buying another lens for my M8, something a bit wider to give me the 'classic' 35mm field of view. Here's the back story - I used to have a Canon 1DMkII and used a 50mm lens as my 'walkabout' lens, so when I sold it and went to the M8 I went for a 50mm Summilux mainly because that is a focal length that I was used to, especially since both cameras have a 1.3x crop sensor. So the question is - what are my options when it comes to achieving a 35mm equivalent on the M8? By my calculations I should aim for a 27mm to get the closest possible, but seems like I will need to compromise. Oh, one other thing - I would like to buy used and not spend too much. I'll list below the options that I've found, along with approximate used prices. (Mainly AUD, but that's not far from USD at the moment anyway...) Voigtlander 25mm f/4 - $420 (This actually looks like a new price?) Voigtlander 28mm f3.5 - just had a quick search online but not much success finding any of these?? Carl Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 - $1,000 Leica 28mm Elmarit (f/2.8) - $1,000 MS Optical Perar 28mm f/4 - $700 (The very far left-field oddball option... price is for new.) Canon 28mm f2.8 - $500 (Screw mount and would require adapter.) What is the opinion on much older lenses, say a 1970's 38mm Elmarit? Honestly I don't care about some paint wear or scratches on the body. Actually I suppose I shouldn't be too concerned, my Summilux is a 1970's model anyway and I am floored by the image quality (or maybe I'm just not very picky). I am seriously considering this old Elmarit, but my only concern is that it has neither front or rear lens caps, so I hope they're sturdy as it must have been stored like this as well... also 'cleaning marks' on the front glass. But this is by far the cheapest option... maybe a good cheap introduction to using 35mm? I figure I can always sell easily without much loss if I don't like it anyway. From what I have seen & read about the Canon 28/2.8 it seems like a great performer as well...? I don't necessarily expect the same performance as my Summilux, I suppose I am happy to experiment a bit because I have only used a single lens on my M8 so far. Interested to hear some other opinions. Are there any other screw mount lenses that I should consider? Cheers
  17. Hallo, auf meiner alten Canon 7 ist ein 1,2/50 mit M39-Anschluß montiert. Erst jetzt komme ich auf den Gedanken, diese Optik mit einem M39 Adapter auf der M9 zu verwenden. Das funktioniert erstaunlich gut. Allerdings harmoniert der Body mit der Kurve des Objektivs nicht ganz perfekt (Front Focus). Wenn ich die Entfernung einen Tick in Richtung unendlich korrigiere, ist die Schärfe perfekt. Welche Werkstatt könnte das Objektiv justieren? Leica fasst ja Fremdobjektive nicht an. Am Body möchte ich nichts ändern, weil er auf alle meine anderen Objektive abgestimmt ist. Vielen Dank für Eure Tipps!
  18. With my recent problems with small format Epson R800 I'm thinking of replacing it with something that will cope with a wide variety of media, which the Canon 9500 (now Mk II) seems to do. Does anyone have any experience with this printer? Other Epsons have been suggested by kind forum members, but they are mostly too large and espensive for my needs. Any thoughts and opinions welcome. Thanks. Tim
  19. Liebe Forenten, ich bin recht günstig in den Besitz eines F1.2, 50mm-Objektivs von Canon gekommen, laut Seriennummer aus dem Jahr 1959. Ich würde es gerne mit meiner M9 nutzen (Adapter von Voigtländer). Im Nahbereich fokussiert das Ding ohne Probleme, ab ca. drei Metern funktioniert das nicht mehr. Weiß jemand, wo ich das Objektiv justieren lassen kann? Danke im Voraus!
  20. This is a Canon 1D(s) issue, but I know some M8 users have mentioned seeing evidence of lubricant spatter on their sensors, so it seemed appropriate to note that it DOES happen. Support - Digital SLR - EOS-1Ds Mark III - Service Notices - Canon USA Consumer Products Kudos to Canon for being on top of this issue, even if they have been knocked for being slow to respond to some things (1DIII AF issues, e.g.) Kudos to Canon for the detailed and extensive explanation of what is going on - including the Mark-Norton-like "surgery" picture of the offending mirror hinges. As Leica moves (we hope) towards a more professional support and service system to back up the S2, I hope in their visits to this forum they take note of this post. This is how to address the inevitable occasional problems with products! ---------------- P.S. I hope this will not be an issue with my forthcoming 5DII, but that if it is, I hope the 5D will get the same service and response as the 1D models.
