  1. Hi! My Leica M10 and some lenses got stolen yesterday in Gothenburg. If anyone sees them, I would be grateful. To moderator, if this is the wrong place to post, please move it. In the bag was: 3824764 Leica Elmarit-M 90 4081227 Leica Elmar-24-M 4112250 Leica Summilux 35 ASPH 5152626 Leica M10 Black Leica E46 filterx2 (on the lenses) Leica M10 Battery Charger for Leica M10 HP Zbook 2017 I will also report to Leica. Regards, Joakim
  2. This topic of 90mm lenses have been discussed many times I know. But I thought I should contribute too, with my own post and some findings. With my quest to get a Leica mount portrait lens for my Sony A7ii camera, I visited red dot cameras in London. I tried various lenses as below 1) 80 Lux-R (similar to 75 lux it is said) 2) 100/2.8 APO-R 3) 90 elmarit-m 4) 90 Summicron-m (non APO) 5) 90/4 macro elmar m I attach a collage of pictures (raw, unprocessed) made with maximum aperture of each lens, except number 2. Unfortunately, I did not like elmarit, you can see why from the attached picture. It feels too warm to me (bottom left). For me, I think the top left (80-lux) and top right (90 cron, non APO) have the best rendition; Lux for its dreamy magical look and the non APO for being very pleasant with good skin tones. macro elmar m (bottom right) is good too, but it won't achieve much separation with f4 over cron. I know this is a very limited set-up and these lenses will work differently outdoors. What do people think based on my attachment?
  3. Hello guys , I just bought a 21mm Elmarit f2.8 lens (the old one) for my Leica MP Typ 240. Really enjoyed the lens. I just noticed that its min focus distance is 0.7 while i read on the internet that you can find a version that focus at 0.38. Any other differences between the two lenses ? Somebody here have experience with the close focus version ? I took some Street Pictures and wrote a little article for my blog: www.walkingphotographer.net/blog/21mm-street-photography Thanks for your time ! Eolo www.walkingphotographer.net
  4. 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 compliment as it is softer / has more of a leica glow (since my 50mm APO and the 28mm Elmarit are both bitingly sharp)? I was originally going to just get a 28 and 50 and NOT the 35 since it seems to be too close to the other 2 focal lengths, so I am now thinking maybe getting something with more of a unique characteristic). Just wondering what all your thoughts are and why you think so? Your kind assistance is very much appreciated. Thank you. Best Regards, J
  5. Hey guys, together with Sailronin (Dave) here from the forum, we manage the 70mm Summarit-S lens group, this gave me the idea to start one for every lens: Super-Elmar-S 24mm Elmarit-S 30mm Summarit-S 35mm Elmarit-S 45mm Summarit-S 70mm Summicron-S 100mm Apo-Macro-Summarit-S 120mm Ts-Apo-Elmar-S 120mm Apo-Elmar-S 180mm Vario-Elmar-S 30-90mm Become a member of the groups you have lenses for, or just browse the groups of lenses you are interested in or maybe want to get to see some samples. Please since the groups are new, add photos to the once you've taken photos with so the groups will soon turn alive! Not that the 70mm lens group is 'owned' by Sailronin, and moderated by me as well hence me sharing it here.

  7. I'm selling my 21mm Super Angulon f/4 M mount in favor of something a little more "practical". While in Cuba earlier this year, I found myself using the Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 on my Contax G2 quite a bit but for my next few trips, I'll bring only a couple of M bodies (M7 & Typ 246). I really love the results that I got out of my Zeiss and am wondering if I should go with another Zeiss (25mm f/2.8 or 28mm f/2.8) OR a new-ish 28mm Elmarit ASPH. So my two questions are "is the Elmarit ASPH quality worth more than double the price of a used Zeiss 25mm or 28mm?" and "In order to keep my work consistent, should I just stick with the Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 for the way it renders colors?" Examples of my work in Cuba with the 28mm f/2.8 on the Contax G2 below. Both photos with Portra 400.
  8. Hallo, ich bin sicher, dass das Thema schon mal behandelt wurde, kann es aber nicht finden. Bitte entschuldigt, falls ich damit nerve. Also: Ich überlege, für meine Leica Monochrom und die M7 ein 28 'er zu kaufen. In der Auswahl ist das Summicron 2,0/28mm Asph. und das Elmarit 2,8/28mm Asph. Einsatzzweck soll hauptsächlich Street Fotografie sein. Also eher schnelles handeln und kleinere Blende (8). Die geringere bzw. höhere Schärfentiefe spielt also keine so große Rolle und der Unterschied zwischen beiden beträgt immerhin 1900 €. Zu welchem Objektiv würdet ihr mir raten? Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe schon jetzt! Beste Grüße Marc
  9. I am a new Leica M9 user and I bought my camera with a 50mm Summicron f/2. Doing a lot of travelling I felt last week in Chicago that I really need to go wide when shooting skylines, architecture and interiors (it was the art museum). In two weeks I will go to India and I really want something before that trip. I have been thinking of both the Super Elmar M 21mm and the Elmarit M 28mm ASPH and I am going back and forth between them. I am quite well aware of the positives and negatives of them but cannot make up my mind! What would be the recommendation from you using these lenses today in your daily photography and when traveling?
  10. Die Belederung -eigentlich ist es ja wohl kein Leder sondern eher eine Art Gummi- meines Elmarit 90mm ist auf einer Laenge von ca 3 cm in einem ganzen Stueck abgebrochen. Es sieht so aus als habe der Vorbesitzer dies schon mal geflickt weil das offenliegende schwarze Metall klebrige Spuren hat. Vielleicht war ein Papierkleber o.a. benutzt worden. Soll ich dies mit Superkleber kleben oder Uhu oder...? Vielen Dank fuer jeden Ratschlag! (als Newbie hoffe ich hier im richtigen Forumsteil geposted zu haben, wenn nicht bitte ich um Korrektur)
  11. Hallo, ich möchte mich gerne von meiner Leica Sammlung trennen und habe deshalb die M6, ein Summicron-M 2/35 , ein Elmarit-M 2,8/90 und ein Noctilux 1:1,2/50mm zur Überprüfung an den Leica Customer Service eingeschickt. Ergebnis ist, das für das Austauschen des Entfernungsmessers und Reinigen der M6 fast 600 € berechnet werden. Für die beiden Objektive mit neu fetten, Optik reinigen und neu justieren werden jeweils knapp 400 € veranschlagt. An das Noctilux traut sich "keiner" ran. Ist auch kein Wunder das Teil ist wie neu und wurde nur 1-2 mal verwendet. Meine Frage lohnt sich eine Reparatur der M6 bzw. Wartung der beiden Objektive in Höhe von fast 1600- € ? Oder gibt es eine Alternative zu dem Leica Service. Besten Dank und Gruß Frank
  12. I can't choose between Elmar 24 3.8 or Elmarit 28mm 2.8 Who has used both and know what lens is better, I know this is a dull question since it depends on what I'll be doing with it... but just in regular which do you think is a better companion for my M8?
  13. Hi, I am in the market for a used 90mm M. What are your experiences with those two lenses - which one would you recommend and why? Used price are somewhat similar... And what about 75mm 2.5 Summarit. I read about some people saying 75 Summarit is brilliant, but at the same time they didn't like 90mm 2.5 Summarit that much. Any help is welcome. Thanks / Alex
  14. Hey guys I wrote a short article about the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm ASPH. You can read it here: Review: Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f2.8 ASPH. - Jip van Kuijk Please leave your thoughts here or in the comment section on my website.
  15. Dear Leica community, relatively new to the Leica M world I am thinking about adding a 90mm to my yet small set of glass (50mm Summarit, 35mm Summicron Asph.), especially to take on a 3 months South America trip. I use an M9-P (and a D-Lux 5 as back-up). I read a lot in this forum, blogs, Ken Rockwell/Steve Huff (I know!) etc and my thoughts are as follows: (1) Tele Elmarit (thin) is the smallest and lightest and, therefore, prone to serve as a travel companion. (2) Tele Elmarit is (i) wide open a little bit inferior in terms of optics and (ii) stopped down to f4 equal to the Elmarit M and Summicron but as a relative beginner I will hardly ever notice the difference. (That said, I must say I did see a big difference between a Summaron 35mm/f2.8 and my Summicron 35mm/f2 asph, for whatever that's worth.) (3) The price for a Tele Elmarit in a good condition ranges between EUR 700-1000. My impression is that the price as gone up since 2009. (4) Most reviews say the Elmarit M is better than the Summicron and much smaller and lighter and if the f2.0 isn't absolutely necessary the Elmarit is the better option. We see similar used prices for both. I am not 100% sure how I would use the 90mm but my plan is to not only use it for portraits but also for landscape and street photography (why not). Now, my questions are: (1) Are my thoughts correct? (2) What would you recommend? (3) I have an offer for a Summicron M in good condition and an Elmarit-M (haven't held it in hands but allegedly good condition as well) both for EUR 850. Reasonable? Many thanks. Greetings from Munich Daniel

    This young nephew is studying to be a lawyer. It was an overcast evening and I just managed this with an Elmarit 90 wide open at 1/30 sec. on ASA 200 film.
  17. Hi. Sorry, I don't mean to re-hash old discussions. I have read numerous threads on 21mm Elmarit vs. 24mm Elmarit issue (as well as 21mm Elmarit vs. 21mm Summilux issue) but just cannot come to a conclusion on the matter. I am looking for a wide angle lens to add to my arsenal of 50mm Lux and 35mm Cron both of which I am very happy with (but I just feel the need to go wide at certain times). I have used the 21mm Elmarit (both pre-asph and asph) and am aware of the issues of loss of shapness and dark edges when wide open as well as some distortions but still think it is a neat lens (actually prefer the pre-asph). I have read on this forum and at other places that 24mm Elmarit is a "dream" and that it is optically superior. What makes the 24mm such a "dream"? I see that the 24mm usually commands a premium over the 21mm and wonder if the price reflects this sentiment. Is the 24mm such a superior lens that I will just be missing out a lot if I "settle" with the 21mm? Is the combination of focal lengths (as mentioned above) a consideration as well? I have also considered the Voigtlander Cosina 21mm/4.0 due to its size and cost advantage but have read that it is not good for the M9 given its rear nodal point being too close to the sensor. Pleaes help me with some feedback. Thank you for your help.

  19. darf man die ketzerische Frage stellen, ob auch andere Mütter hübsche Töchter haben? Mal bitte alle Vorurteile beiseite - was darf man vom Zuiko halten? Hat jemals jemand den Mut gehabt diese Beiden (evtl sogar Meisterstücke) zu vergleichen? Ein Elmarit könnte ich für 250€, das Zuiko für 400€ haben - für R haben wir schon so einiges gutes 2.8/35, 2/50, 2.8/90 jeweils die aktuellen Modelle, bei Olympus würde das halt schon gut reinpassen ... Fragen über Fragen ... Die eine mehr Blende reizt mich nicht so arg, das Zuiko hat halt 9 Linsen (Kontrast & Brilianz?) - aber soviele Kittgruppen - das das nur unwesentlich ins Gewicht fallen dürfte. tschau Tilman
  20. The ferris wheel at the square in front of the Palace theatre in Copenhagen. One of my first Leica-shots, as I've only owned my M8 for five days (it was bought second hand from Meister Camera in Hamburg). The lens is an Elmarit 24. Thanks for watching.

    M7, 24mm Elmarit.
  22. Anybody here who went from the 24/2.8 to the Lux and tell me the experience? What can you do what you could not do before getting the 24? Do you use f1.4 and f2 often so that you would say the move made sense? Would you do it again? Can you post some images? Thanks a lot
  23. I experimented with IR photography using my Elmarit 28/2.8 on the M8. I realized that this lens appears to cause a significant hot spot under IR conditions, especially with apertures 8 and up. Can you please share your experience with other lenses on the M8 when using for IR photography? Thanks! Ralph
  24. Hey I just purchased a 28mm Elmarit for my M8 but it did not come with a hood. I know the filter size is bigger on this one (49mm) so I am having a bit of a problem locating a rect. hood. Does anyone have a good location to get such a item? It is this one: 11804 - 2.8/28mm Elmarit-M - 1979-1992 M49x0.75 12536 <-- This is the Product ID of the hood. - 14001 E49 Also, if someone has experience with this lens, is the hood necessary? - I purchased a 49mm leica cap on ebay so that the front element is protected (as it looks like the original lens has a rect. cap on the lens shade.
  25. Hello everyone This is my first thread in the forum, but unfortunately it might be my last! Last Saturday was the Thames festival in London, and I took out my M6 to photograph the event. In the evening, my camera bag with all my Leica equipments was stolen near Earls Court station. In it contained a M6 TTL and two lenses. Fortunately, we have a good CCTV footage of the thief showing his face clearly. I have reported the theft to the police who said there is a chance of catching him from the footage. But I'm afraid that when they do it would be too late. Can anyone suggest what else I can do in the mean time? I have heard that it is possible to report the serial number to Leica where they kept a database of stolen equipments, but I haven't had much luck looking for this online. The serial numbers are: Leica M6 TTL 2756569 50 Summilux 3783157 24 Elmarit ASPH 3964779 Please, please be careful with your bags. It only took me half a minute from it, with table full of people I know.
