  1. What is the best way to store lens' to avoid fungus?i) In a sealed plastic box with silica gel?ii) In a cardboard box where the air can circulate?iii) In a daylight area?The area in question is not damp and does not suffer any extreme of temperature just a normal UK house environment.I am asking because a previous lens from another top quality lens brand ( 70-300 zoom bought from new) was left in my camera bag and fungus started to appear, it was never used in the rain and was stored at normal room temperature Thanks
  2. Hallo zusammen, interessiere mich für eine gebrauchte M 8 und habe ein Angebot eines gebrauchtes Modells angeblich von 2011 mit einem Nokton 1,4/35, Elmarit2,8/90, Case, Pol-, UV Filter, 2 Akkus und Sucherlupe. Ich kann sie mir leider nicht ansehen und habe im Forum gelesen, dass viele nur zum Kauf mit Gewährleistung bei der M8 raten. Ich könnte o.a. Angebot von privat für 1650,00 erwerben. Was sagt ihr? Worauf ist dringend beim Gebrauchtkauf zu achten? Bei den Objektiven, weiss ich auch nicht, wie ich beispielsweise Fungus kontrollieren könnte. Bin nun etwas verblendet und hätte gerne mal ein paar objektive Meinungen hierzu. Vielen Dank schon einmal!
  3. Hello, This is going to be my first purchase of a more serious photographic equipment:D; I would like to obtain a Leica M6 (classic, No 223XXXX) as well as a used Voigtländer f1.7 (comes with adapter for M mount) from a trader in a local store for a reasonable sounding price (1050 EUR & 480 EUR, respectively). I will get a 1 month return policy. Regardless of what the trader claims (good condition): What are the main indicator clues, in terms of working condition and re-sell value, when holding the m6 or the Voigtländer lense in my hands in the store ? This questions also applies for M6 bodies and lenses quality checks in general. Keywords lense: fungus: what does it look like? How can I detect it?. Where would it be ? damaged interiour: detectable by eye ?. Can you feel it ? focus: aperture rings ? Can one feel the state ? body: light sensor state. Any way to see it while in the store ? Serial number: any clues here ? original packaging box & contents awailability: (is this important to maintain re-sell value ? ... in my case it is not available) I would be very grateful if someone could refer me to an appropriate link or tell me from his experience, regarding key indicators for good or bad state of M6 bodies (classic) and lenses. Replies in German would be equally helpful. Thank you very much in advance.
  4. I have a non-collapsible 50mm Summicron M lens that I recently discovered had a case of the white haze. The haze seems to be in the shape of a ring corresponding to closing down the lens to f2.8, with the cloudiness filling to the edges. This lens already had a liberal amount of 'cleaning marks' on the front element, but I liked the way it rendered. It was a little soft, but in a way that was almost flattering when shooting people. I had checked this lens ~9 months ago and don't remember seeing anything. There also seems to be the beginnings of haze on other elements inside the lens. I haven't done any tests yet, and I really am not equipped to do that kind of stuff. So some questions: How fast can this happen? Why did the haze form the way that it did? Can it be stopped, once it's started? Can it be fixed? Would the haze likely not affect images if I stopped down 2.8 or more? Is there group therapy available for people who are watching a lens they love die? Any help is appreciated. @ f2 (below) @ f2.8 (below)
  5. I've recently acquired a very cheap 35mm Summicron v4 M in very good shape. However, the front and back elements are filled with dust (or fungus). The edges don't have any obvious fungus or anything. The are only specs here and there, but mostly in the center of the elements. What do you guys think? Is it dust or fungus? Here are some pictures:
