  1. Hallo, ich interessiere mich aktuell für das Nokton Classic 40mm f 1.4 Leica M. Welcher Sucherrahmen wird eingeblendet, wenn ich das Objektiv anschließe. 35 oder 50. Ich danke vorab für das Interesse. Gruß Ralf -- www.ralfhaun.de
  2. What are the odds! Few days ago, over the weekend I used my M2 to shoot my cat drinking water from the tap. Tri-X 400. It so happened that today he wanted to drink water again (he likes tap water) and today I happened to have the same lens mounted on M240. 50Lux ASPH. I thought it will be fun to compare the BW shots in almost same setup and exposure. It surprised me that I had to add +1.3 exposure to the digital file to match Tri-X output. It was very low light (1/30, f/1.4 @ISO400). You know which is which.
  3. Leica has announced a camera with "Digital Body. Analog Soul." in M10-D. I would rather prefer "Analog Body, Digital Help". Digital help as in scanned digital files, capturing and applying EXIF and GEO data and of course sharing and printing digitally. This has been my preference lately, rather than trying to go the other way (M10-D way with faux lever and artificially restricting digital advantages). What do you think?
  4. Just because I had 135 Tele-Elmar lying around, I used it on my M2. For framing I guessed based on central patch (it seems patch is 1/3rd the size) by comparing the framing against M240. I am not sure whether it will work. The film is still in the camera. I shot some closeup shots (5ft) as well to test focusing accuracy. Maybe in couple of weeks I will know. Has anyone tried this. Does it work?
  5. I shot my first test roll in newly acquired Leica M2. In precisely one frame, I got a shadow line on top of the picture (see below). It was shot at 1/500. There are other frames just before and after with same shutterspeed which do not have the same artifact. Anybody seen this? My camera was supposed to be CLAed (I bought from Tamarkin). Rest of the frames are good, except only this one. I have warranty therefore I will shoot another roll to see what happens, but would like to know what tribal knowledge in this forum has to say about this.
  6. Hello, I recently acquired two Leica M cameras from an auction. One is a M3, the other is a M2. They both are cosmetically in pretty nice condition, but the viewfinder on each seems to have an issue. The M3 seems like it may have some separation going on and the focusing patch seems pretty dim. The frame lines for the 90mm seems permanently visible as well. The M2 has what looks like dark spot inside the viewfinder—I'm not sure that this could be. When you looks through the viewfinder it still seems bright and the patch is clearly visible. I'm wondering if anyone can help identify the issue and also let me know if you think it can be fixed. Other than the viewfinders, the cameras seems in really great shape. Hopefully a CLA can clear things up, or a recement. Thanks! Ross

  13. Dear Leica user, let me propose you some shot done with the still great M2 and the Ektar 100, a perfect marriage for any traveller and photographer. Last year my lovely M9's sensor start to melt down, so going to Tokyo for holidays I took my M2 as companion traveller, being sure that it will have no sensor or battery problem. I really enjoy shooting with it and the Kodak Ektar 100 with its weird color is a lovely film. the only picture I post processed is this one , just a bit :-) If you have same spare time to have a look to more picture: http://blog.massimilianotiberi.com/leica-m2-kodak-ektar-in-japan/

  15. With up to $1000 budget, which one would you buy to use and keep? M2, M3 or M4 And are there variations to watch for or watch out for? Also, which starter lens? Thanks J
  16. I finally joined the forum so I can view the attached pictures you all have been posting, be it gear or photographs! What great pictures, thank you! Definitely worth signing up just for that. On to myself, my name is Patrick and I live near Washington, DC. I got bit by the rangefinder bug about a year ago, and I finally hit the Leica stage. I picked up a Leica M2 and had a CLA done by Youxin Ye. I never knew split images could be so bright! Before, I had a Canonet 28, Yashica MG-1, and a Zorki 4 with a Jupiter 8. I am really loving shooting film, especially black and white. I feel as if I am becoming one with the camera! I have started developing on my own rolls and it's satisfying and relieving! I find it relieving because I can get my black and white rolls developed anytime I want in my own house! If you want to take a look at my work, check out my tumblr and my personal blog. I am excited to share my Leica experience with everyone. I am equally excited to absorb the wealth of knowledge and experience contained here!

    Soon to be 3

    This little one, the daughter of a niece, will turn 3 in September. I have been fortunate to have photographed her since she was just a couple of months old. The first is with a 35mm Ultron and the second is with a 90mm Elmarit.
  18. This man, Ahmed, is employed as a car driver. He asked me to take a photo of him. I tried without success to tell him to wait for a day or two as it was obvious that he had just dyed his hair.
  19. Here are som photos from my New York trip earlier this year. This is the first rolls from my new Leica M2 with a Summicron 35. Feel free to leave a comment!
  20. Hello everyone. I'm really new here, so I apologize if I posted this in the wrong forum. I got myself a Leica M2 from '62 (checked the serial number) with an MR4 and a Nippon Kogaku 5cm 1:2 H-C lens. Everything is in great shape, the camera just has a few scratch marks from years of use, but whats really confusing me is the lens. The lens focuses accurately, except the rangefinder window in the viewfinder that tells me whats in focus doesn't move when I hit the 3.4 ft mark. So from 1.5 to 3.4 ft, I have no confirmation if the image is in focus. I fiddled around, and opened the pressure plate, set the camera at B and checked the focus mechanism, and I found that the pivot arm hits the back of the lens mount and doesn't move forward when the camera is focused at 3.4 ft. I found that rather strange for an LTM lens... Anyone heard of anything similar? I've been trying to find an answer but no luck so far. Also, anyone recommends a way to clean the haze of an internal element of the lens? Thanks!
  21. Hallo erstmal, ich bin seit Dezember stolzer Besitzer einer M2. Zunehmend interessiert mich die Blitzfotografie, also habe ich kürzlich einen Blitznippel gekauft, um meinen Stabblitz von Braun (LZ 42) an ihr betreiben zu können. Natürlich wird der Blitz nicht gezündet... Alles überprüft, alles scheint in Ordnung. Also kurzum den Blitz an meine Minolta XD-7 und Zorki 4K angeschlossen. Kein Fehler, der Blitz löst wunderbar aus. Sogar bei lasch eingestecktem Kabel. Drücke ich den Stecker vom Blitz, mit Kraft Richtung Blitzbuchse, löst der Blitz bei meiner M2 auch aus. Wieso tut er das nicht ohne Kraftaufwand? Ich muss mich schließlich darauf verlassen können, dass alles funktioniert. Bei meiner Olympus 35 RC übrigens das gleiche Problem. -> Blitz löst nur bei Druck gegen den Synch-Kontakt aus. Lieben Gruß Tobi PS: Mir ist von Nikon der AS-15 Blitzadapter aufgefallen. Um das Kabel nicht ständig zu belasten wäre es doch sinnvoll, diesen auf den Blitzschuh zu setzen und mit dem Synch Kontakt der Kamera zu verbinden, und den Blitz selbst über den Blitzschuh laufen zu lassen. Wäre dies sinnvoll? Ich plane den Blitz überwiegend entfesselt zu benutzen.
