  1. Hey dear Leica community, I recently got two offers for two Leica cameras. The first one is a Leicaflex (The original one, no TTL) with a Summicron 50mm f/2 (V1) and the second offer was a Leica R4 with a 35-70 f/3.5. I even got an offer for a Leica R3 (Made in Germany!) for around the same price. All cameras (inculding the lens) are somewhere from 250€ - 300€ (245$-290$) Which one should I buy, I am very new to the Leica world, since I mainly used Nikon yet. Or should i sell my whole Nikon System to get a Leica M camera? Greetings from Germany
  2. Hello Community, I am planing to buy a Leica R4 with a 35-70 mm f/3.5 for 260€ (252USD). First of all, is that a good deal? I am very new to the Leica world, and is the 35-70mm a good lens? The second thing is, do you guys know any common Problems of the Leica R4, so I can check the Leica before buying it? That would be awsome Greetings from Germany Florian

  4. Dear Leica Forum Comunity, i got my Leica Sl over 1 Year ago, and it might sound crazy, but i only used 3 EF-lenses Adapted to it. After some thinking, I decided to get some new glas, namly L mount glas. As much as i would love to get Leica lenses, i simply can not afford it. So i looked arround what i could use. I now come to a point were i have to make a decision. Is it more worth it to get Sigma glas, or more to get older R-lenses and adapt it to the SL. It would be great if someone could tell their experience using either of them on the SL Thanks for your replies Herbert
  5. Hi, I'm a relatively new Leica user - I've just been using the Leica R3, and after getting my film back, it seems I need to re-seal my camera. Though, when I bought it, the seller told me that the light seals had already been replaced right before selling. My question is - does it look like this light leak is coming from the canister window - and if so, can I just tape it up? I've ordered foam seals but I've got a trip coming up and I don't think that they're going to arrive in time. Thanks, Kerr
  6. Hi there, I'm new here, from Chile, and need some advice: I have seen a LEICA bellows (16 880) on the Website of a danish photographer, called Thorsten von Overgaard. I'd like to buy one and went on eBay, but these bellows seem to be sold out, perhaps because of the recommendation on that website (scroll down): https://www.overgaard.dk/Leica-M-Type-240-aka-Leica-M10-digital-rangefinder-camera-page-33-The-Leica-R-Lenses-on-Leica-M240-Catwalk.html I wouldn't want to put a blue NOVOFLEX bellows on my LEICA camera, so a new one doesn't do the trick for me. I'm a bit old-fashioned and so for my esthetics a bellows has to be black . . . Would somebody of you out there know, where I could possibly buy a 16880 bellows in MINT conditions? Or which one would be a good alternative to that 16880? What I need that bellows for is to be able to shoot photos in my house, while being confined through that epidemia. I'd take similar photographs as this Overgaard chap, you can look at his at the website (see link above). Very much looking forward to your posts, Peter

  9. Hi! I have a mint Leica R7, worked always without any issue but today I noticed when attaching the Summicron the "A" (full and centered) modes were no displaying when changing the modes (it displayed "m" and even the controls were manual), the same for the program mode (where it said time priority"). is it possible that maybe the metal contact of the selector needs a clean or the electronic has a big problem? or what can it be? (the lens I'm using is a "R only" lens, I had the R4s2 before and it functioned in all modes with no problems) Thanks
  10. Dear All, As per the reviews (Sony A99 Review), Sony A99 body has Image Stabilisation in the body itself and IS functions perfectly with even old Zeiss and Maxum lenses. I am basically Canon and Leica R shooter, never have had experience with Sony system. I am thinking it would be a great solution to use Leica R lenses with Leitax mount with Sony A99 and enjoy the IS facility especially the Tele R lenses/Modul system. Any experience and/or thought about it? Thanking you all in advance. Photography in Nature - Dhruba Kumar Sapkota
  11. This is going to be a bit of a newbie question as I am sure that folks on this forum probably hate the idea of mating a zoom to a rangefinder. I use a number of primes with my M and love them all but for the sake of occasional convenience and longer focal lengths I am considering an M-R adapter with possibly a Vario Elmar 70-210 or preferably the 80-200 (assuming I can find either). Does anyone have any experience of either of these two lenses on an M and are they any good? Is one better than the other because I notice that the 80-200 f/4 is a heck of a lot more money - if you can find one. Thanks for any advice.
  12. Hello guys, I've got this question, when you buy a summarit or R lens new the rubber on the focussing ring is usually black-black... but after a while it usually turns greyish at some parts... Now my question is is there some 'product' that can give the rubber back its blackness. My idea is that it turns 'white/greyish' when it 'dries' out... or something... Now I really don't know nothing about rubber, or plastic rubbers. So please enlighten me! Thanks!
  13. Hello fellow forum members, I've written a article about the Summilux-R 80mm lens, and how it performs on the R8, and on the M (Typ 240) with R-M adapter, and EVF2. You can read it here: Summilux-R 80 on the Leica R8 and M (Typ 240) | Jip van Kuijk Here are two preview shots but there is plenty more in the article itself:
  14. Hi everyone, I'm new here and hope someone can help me. I bought a leica R 50mm summicron made in Canada 2780309. The glass is almost perfect like the body. Focus and aperture are also in good shape. The problem I got is related with a focus issue. I can focus right but the scale doesn't match. To focus far away (almost infinity) the focus scale is between 8 and 10 feet.Not match between be in focus to infinity and the scale reading. Is like the breath's focus is shorter. I'm shooting with m4/3 mount. How can that be? Best regards. Francisco
  15. 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.
  16. Hallo welcher ist der beste Adapter für Leica R Objektive an EOS? Möglichst einer mit dem der Autofocus mit Hilfslicht funktioniert. Ich habe die 6D, Ich habe schon einen Adapter aus China über Ebay. Der ist nicht schrlecht aber ich finde ihn etwas instabil und wenn man Pech hat, fällt das Objektiv ab. Er sollte schon stabil sein. Danke Paul
  17. Hey guys, maybe nice to revive the R series a bit, and I don't mean R lenses on M bodies or other digital hocuspocus. Except maybe the DM-R... This thread serves to post images taken with a Leica R camera, and Leica R Prime or zoom lenses. Please while posting tell us the the camera model, lens and film. Or as much as you know so others can learn about the combinations that have made it possible for you to take the photo. Here is a example. #1 Leica R8 - Kodak Gold 200 - Summilux-R 1:1,4/80mm
  18. jetzt erschliesst sich auch der Sinn dieses Unterforums Zubehör-Offensive für die Leica M | photoscala "Der neue Leica R-Adapter M ermöglicht erstmals die Verwendung von nahezu allen jemals gebauten Leica R-Objektiven an der neuen Leica M.

  19. Hallo, was bedeutet "mit 60 mm Gewinde" , z. B. bei einer Anzeige "Leica Macro Elmarit-R 60mm 2.8 mit 60mm Gewinde" ist das etwas anderes als das "normale" Leica R Objektiv? Danke
  20. Ich wag´es gar nicht mehr hier zu posten* aber die CP+ wirft halt ihren Schatten vorraus:. Sigma bringt die SD 1 als "SD1 Merrill" neu raus - in "sinnhaften" Preisregionen. Preisrutsch: Sigma SD1 Merrill | photoscala * Warum hier - es gibt Umbausätze für Sigma dSLRs auf Leica R Bajonett.
  21. I recently wrote to Leica Germany asking if there would be a "digital solution for Leica R users" (from Leica itself) and mentioned that I was looking at the recently released Panasonic GH1 as a possible alternative "crossover solution". Their reply came back this morning and I quote: "Dear Mr Hodges, thank you very much for your request. We know very well about this serious situation concerning the following system of the R-system. Unfortunately it was not possible for the Leica Camera AG to develop a digital camera body for the R-system simultaneous to the new S-System. But our important aim is to continue the R-system into the digital technology and we are engaged to offer our R-customers an optimal solution which allows using the analogue lenses in combination with a fully digital body. For the necessary technical innovations the S-System will be an ambitious platform to integrate proved features into the new R-follower. We still cannot release any exact data about the introduction date of the new system, but be asssured, it won’t be introduced in the next 6 month. Thank you for your understanding." This also aligns with information I received from the distributor in Australia recently, who implied that something was happening, but not to expect an announcement before Photokina 2010. Life is good again, start saving your pennies Graeme.
  22. Hallo, ich habe eine Frage bzgl. meier analogen Leica R-E. Ich habe diverse Objektive dazu und würde mir gerne eine digitale Kamera zulegen. Leider kenne ich mich nicht aus, welche Möglichkeiten es gibt. Kann man die Objektive für eine digitale Leica ebenso verwenden? Oder gibt es sogar die Möglichkeit die Objektive mittels Adapter für eine andere digitale Spiegelreflex zu verwenden? Ich danke Euch schon mal für Antworten! Gruß Steffi

  24. 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 anecdote at this point). Cons : fixed focal (280mm isn't that versatile in a city, huh?). VE 105-280 Pros : good reputation albeit less praised that the 280/4. More versatile. 500€ cheaper. Cons : heavy zoom, tripod required. Not APO. Price isn't that important (I prefer to wait a bit more if that helps), and I will use either lens on my tripod anyway. Also, I am especially careful on vignetting... and on this point, the VE seems to be better! (VE charts available here, and 280/4 charts here) That sounds surprising since fixed focals are usually more optimised... Finally, my longest lens at present is a Lux 80. I consider buying an Apo-Extender later; even though not on par with the 90AA or 180 Apo (), results should be acceptable. And the gap problem posed by the 280/4 would be eased. Still, I'm unsure about all this... Do you think the quality of the fixed 280/4 (vignetting wise, especially) is worth giving up the versatility of a zoom, for the city person that I am? Maybe the zoom feature of the VE is more psychological than practical after all, since I will have to use a complex setup with a tripod? Any hint will be appreciated!
  25. Nach ein paar Jahren Ausflug in die Digitalfotografie mit leidlich-anspruchsvollen Kompakt-Kameras mochte ich wieder in die Leica Welt einsteigen. Ich habe eine R6.2 mit diversen Objektiven. Neben der Analog Fotografie mochte ich auch digital mit den R Objektiven fotografieren. Dabei geht es eher um ein -wenn auch solides- Ausprobieren, evtl. auch zur Überbrückung bis zur R10. Nach ersten Informationen bin zu zwei Alternativen gekommen: 1) 4/3 Kamera, vorzugsweise Olympus E1 - hier Insbeondere als Vorteil zu nennen der grosse Sucher und Kompatibilität zu allen R-Objektiven. Nachteil: Crop Faktor 2; mein geliebtes 50er wird zum halben Tele. 2) eine andere Standard DSLR Canon oder Nikon (wenn ja welche?) Adapter scheint es ja in grosser Vielfalt zu geben (wenn auch mit gewissen Einschränkungen der Objektiv-Kompatibilität. Was ist ganz allgemein der Vorteil von 4/3 fur R-Objektive? Handelt es si h hier lediglich um den allg. 4/3-Vorteil oder gibt es spezielle Vorzüge in der Kombination von R Objektiven und 4/3? Wer hat hier Erfahrungen? Bringt das überhaupt was oder ist das eine Illusion zu glauben, dass die R-Objektive etwas Anspruchsvolles aus einem Digitalbody wie der E1 herausholen? Gruss, panorama
