  1. I keep hearing good things about the Leica 40mm f2 Summicron. (also read Minolta Rokkor option). Just wondering if it’s as good as the reviews appear to be. Currently have a Nokton 35mm 1.4 & a 50mm 1.2 Nokton. The 50mm is a great lens but quite big and the 35 1.4 is a bit of a so and so for vignetting. Wondering if the 40mm f2 would cut the mustard on my M6/M10 combination.
  2. Hi everyone, I just purchased my first cinema style lens for the SL2-S and have just done a quick review and first impressions about it here I know some users have wondered how non-Leica lenses perform on this body, so I thought this could add to the literature. I have to say that this lens has been a pleasure to use and edit from– the wide angle is insanely fun to use! However, and I guess I don't really touch on this in the video, I don't think this is a normal walk-around lens like most Leica lenses are intended for. Even the bigger SL lenses can seem normal to walk around with. Becau
  3. I must admit that since acquiring it several years ago, I do not much go to my Noctilux 50mm f/.95. My biggest disappointment is that while I really want to use it for portraiture, the minimum focusing distance is so far that I am unable to fill the screen with my subject. Instead, I must back away significantly and then crop. So, before I consider selling the beast, I thought that maybe forum members could post their favorite .95 images to persuade me otherwise. I'll start with a photo from the .95 that I am happy with. Happy New Year! Image: Copyright 2020 Gordon Ownby
  4. I've done a review of my favorite lens. You can read more here: Zeiss Planar ZM 2.0/f Review. Has anyone else had this lens and switched to Summicron? What was your reason to do so?
  5. My 240MP viewfinder shows the 28mm frame line no matter what lens I have mounted--35mm, 50mm, 90mm. I turn them all to the lock position, but the frame lines read only the 28/135 boxes. Any ideas? Or do I have to send it back to Leica?
  6. I have an r5... but all this talk about cams is confusing.... all my lenses, except my 50 cron are 3 cam... I don't feel the need for an r8 or r9, does single cam,2 cam, or 3 cam or any other variation make any difference? current lenses: 24 elmarit,50 cron, 90 elmarit, 180 elmarit
  7. I picked up a Voigtlander 50 1.5 M mount version from ebay. Very disappointed, the lens is useable because of focus shift. Nothing is in focus. Now, I have 35/3/5 summaron, elmar-m 50/2.8 and 600-800 cash. Which lens do you guys suggest that I should go to? I just sold 35/2(eight element) and elmar 50/3.5. I am familiar with 28, 35 and 50 lens.

  9. Kudos to Leica NJ on APO 50mm Lens Service The quality control at the factory in Germany on my last three Leica items purchased new was lacking. First a 50mm 1.4 ASPH lens was exchanged in NJ, then an M(240) body had the sensor changed in NJ, and finally an APO 50mm lens with a loose optical cell was properly repaired in NJ in June. I write here to compliment the NJ service department especially with respect to this latest problem in case others might be concerned about their doing similar minor work on this particular lens. Leica emailed me (in Canada) a prepaid overnight shipping label, p
  10. Does anyone know if I can connect Leica M lens to Canon 5D body? if so, could anyone recommend the right adapter for Leica Summicron-M 1:2/50 e39 lens and Cannon 5D body? Many thanks, really appreciate it. Sia.
  11. Have been loving the Leica Q since purchase 2 months ago in mid June 2015. BUT: Noticed a speck this week, which was confirmed today in the Leica store in NYC (SoHo) that is possibly dust or other particle on the sensor. It shows up on all pictures making the camera unusable. Since it is single-body camera and you cannot remove the lens to clean it yourself, this is a BIG problem. However, the BIGGER problem is the camera is apparently so new that even Leica official service (in NJ, who have otherwise been super nice and accomodating) have said don't even bother sending it yet as THEY do
  12. A Flickr member has pages from an old booklet about Leica lenses. The descriptions help identify variations that a lens model went through. The writing combines technical detail, history of production run, and promotion. https://www.flickr.com/photos/summicron/sets/72057594070107293
  13. Andreas has a great summary of the SL lenses, but the dimensions/weight section of the table is blank. Does anyone know these figures, particularly the 90-280? I'm wondering how it compares to my Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VRII. Apologies if this info is available. I have had a quick look through the Leica site and here, to no avail.
  14. Hi guys, just bought a T with 11-23 and 55-135, upgraded to fw 1.43 and I have noticed the when the tele is fitted I have 5 Auto Focus options instead of the standard 3 (M, AFs, AFc): the menu shows also AFs and AFc with a couple of small arrows on the sides, as shown in the pictures. I looked on Manuals, forum, etc, with our finding what do they mean. Any idea?? Many thanks!
  15. Hello, I was shooting the other day, and noticed when i tried to focus on some towers (miles away from Brooklyn) on my M240/50 Lux ASPH at infinity the double images are ever so slightly off. even the focus peaking was not on the spot. When i tried with another lens, the double image were ok ! so i believe the lens need to be readjusted for infinity ? if so should i sent to leica or there are other reputable place in the US that can do it quicker...? Thanks for your help ! Best Vadim
  16. I stumbled across this website yesterday looking for info on the drawing style of a Leica lens. Most of the current crop of Leica lenses are discussed, along with photographs from those lenses, and also the ZM and CV lenses too. It's a useful resource. http://rangefinder.yodobashi.com/lens/index_e.html
  17. I've been quite impressed with the 35/1.4 (Version IV) and the collapsable 50/2 (Version I). What are your favorite smallest and most versatile Leica M lenses?
  18. Hi, I'm currently vacationing in Europe. While I was in France, a dust hit my sensor. It can't be remove by blower. Good thing there is a leica store in Paris. Anyway, any tips on the proper way to change lenses to prevent dust? Whether indoor or outdoor?
  19. I'm considering buying a Leica for the first time. From some video reviews, I noticed that with a 50mm lens, part of the rangefinder frame is occupied by the lens. Does that mean that with a 35mm lens, an even bigger portion of the frame will be occupied by the lens?
  20. I'd like to get 35mm lens, likely the Summicron asph or Summilux FLE for my M240 to fill in a gap in my current lineup. The lenses I currently have are a 50mm Summilux (II) from 1962, 90mm Summarit and 21mm SEM. The lens would be general purpose: travel, landscape, street. Sometimes I need something a bit wider than 50 but not as wide as 21. I feel that 50mm will probably remain my most used lens so even though the 35 Lux is a fantastic lens and I like the look of the images from it, I'm wondering if the Summicron would be the better choice. I've tested these lenses in the past but ha
  21. Hey guys. Just wrote a review of this lens after owning it for 10 months, with some pictures. Check it out if you'd like Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH review | Observations
  22. Hi folks, New to the forum so, greetings to all. Studied at the London College of Printing decades ago and now have time and money to invest in a Leica. Have been mostly using point and shoots for the last 2 decades. Learned on a Pentax K1000 back in the day. Presently live in South America so will be taking a trip to NY to buy. I'd like to buy an M240 but I have 3 questions. 1) Lenses - what is the ASPH lens? And could somebody explain the 6-bit code lens to me? I intend to buy standard digital lenses. What should I be looking for regards description? The prices vary consi
  23. Hi All! I'm hoping someone can clarify a question that I'm sure many of you will know the answer to--or direct me towards an already existing thread. I recently purchased a Summicron 50mm lens from KEH as well as a Summicron 35mm, neither of which came with the proper retaining ring. I was told at the Leica store to purchase Series VI 14160 rings, and have done so. The problem: I would like to use a 62mm filter on these lenses but cannot figure out which initial step up ring will fit into the lenses--39mm, 41mm or 44mm? There is a lot of conflicting information out there about ser

    lenses for M9 and m240

    I had my lenses adapted to the M9 (e.g. distance / focus of each lens was syncronised to this particular M9) now I am going to buy a M240, I am wondering if the distance / focus will be correct to the M240 too Does anyone have appropriate experince ? Thank you very much for your reply
  25. Anyone here have used the small Japanese lens MS Optical Super Triplet Perar 3.5/35 on a Leica M 240? I would love to get one but wonder if there are any problems on this new camera. Any advice is appreciated.
