  1. I found this Carl Zeiss Jena lens for Leica SM (M39) at a flea market. This is what I could find about it: The Herar should be cheaper opportunity to the Carl Zeiss Biogon. It was originally produced for the Contax mount. The lens was produced around 500-1000 times. The one i found appears to be a prototype/sample for the Leica screw mount M39. It has a connection for the range finder and the aperture can be controlled with the front ring of the lens. It was produced before 1939. I hope I got everything right. My two questions: Are the infos are all right (age, Version etc
  2. 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.
  3. Hi there. Couple of days ago I decided to try some LTM glass on my Leica MP and bought a new Fotodiox 50/75 adapter. While it worked perfectly I was surprised and mostly heart broken to see that the mid line of the lens mount had been scratched on my beloved camera which I saved for such a long time to buy. The scratch is superficial as far as I can see and on the 4,5,6 and 7 o'clock directions (The photo which I share on here doesn't do them justice. They are more visible than what looks like here). I didn't have time to develop my film so I cannot say if it damaged the mount on funtional lev
  4. 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
  5. I have an opportunity to buy at pretty close to the same price, and in the same excellent condition, either a 1980 Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 (black) or a ten year old, six-bit coded Summicron-M 50mm f/2 (black). From Erwin Puts' write up, the older Summilux 50 should render much like my 1972 Summilux 35 does, my all time favorite Leica 35mm lens. And the Summicron will have the modern look that works so well in my Summarit-M 75. I like both ... but which one to choose is a puzzle. They're both clean and include caps and hoods (built-in on the Summicron); the Summicron also includes original box an
  6. Hello All, today I was lucky enough to buy a fully functioning Leica R3 for $50 at my local antique store. Anyways, I don't have any R-Mount lenses and was wondering if there was an adapter for my Leica M lenses that will allow me to use them on my R3.
  7. I am curious about different peoples opinion about how effective are Leica's slide-out hoods. I have seen conflicting posts for some time. As an example one person thinks the 75mm APO-Summicron is optically an excellent lens, except the lens hood is ineffective so the lens is a poor design. Another thinks the lens hood on the same lens is just fine. I know I am talking about a variety of lenses over several generations. But I have a variety of lenses from several generations. In some cases I have purchased additional hoods from third parties, such as from Mr. Overgaard, and some I have com
  8. Hello, I just sold my Nikon gear and hopefully I will get my M10 next week. I also ordered the 50mm Summilux and for the lower range the 28mm Summilux. Since I am not familiar with the product range (yet), I am looking for something at the upper range. Yesterday I found a 90mm (Elmar ?) macro for which you need to purchase a macro adapter. Is this a good lens for macro shots since the adapter has a 1:2 magnifying factor or are there other, better lenses for that purpose on the market ? Thank you very much for your replies. Greetings, Jurgen
  9. H guys, As mentioned in another thread, I just bought an SL and 24-90. I have always bought a skylight / UV or protective filter for any lens I have ever bought but this is my first Leica and I don't want to interfere with or degrade optical quality. So wanted some advice pls - filter needed or not? Thanks John
  10. I know there are already a few threads which briefly touch on this lens, but I want to know: What do you think about the little 21mm f/4 Voigtländer? After planning a few photo trips this year, I thought I need a wide angle. Until now, my NEX-7 with the 12mm Zeiss Touit did the job, but I no longer wanted to bring that rather large combination with me all the time. My Billingham Hadley small still has a little room, and my M-system lacks a wide angle lens (I currently only have a 50mm and a 90mm Summicron). So today, I found a deal at leicashop.com (a well known Vienna-based Leica dealer
  11. any point in coding my lenses? 90mm elmarit 50/1.2 canon (code as noctilux?) 28/3.5 canon (not sure)
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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?
  15. 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?
  16. Hi everyone, i own both a m2 and a m4p. on all the rolls that ive shot on both cameras, ive noticed this weird flaring across the frame. i dont know if it is a light leak or if it could possibly be my lens. the m2 definately hasnt been cla'ed in a while but the m4p i just bought from a shop and has been cla'ed. i use a canon 50 1.4ltm and a voigtlander 35 1.4sc, but its the newer of the two lenses. Ive noticed that the rolls of film occasionally have flare across the top of the frame usually spanning from the top right to 3/4 of the way to the left but only in some frames. in the m2, t
  17. Hey, I'd like to do some wide-angle portraits. I found these photos and really love both the look and FOV. Can you help me guessing the focal length? https://flic.kr/p/URde7u https://flic.kr/p/VZuu21 I'd imagine he used 28mm or 24mm, or even wider? Maybe the 24mm Lux (because of the bokeh)? Has anyone else here taken similar shots?
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
