  1. Hi. I was wondering whether the heads of both are interchangeable, i.e. can you screw the head of Elmar 9cm into the barrel of Wollensak Velostigmat 9cm New York? I have seen one such combo but the optical lens was destroyed so I was unable to test. I know the top of inner barrel should have matching last three digits, but I did not get to check them. My two further questions: are Wollensak Velostigmat 9cm 4.5 lenses RF coupled? And was there ever a E. Leitz New York 9cm Elmar? Thank you for your answers.
  2. this was on Instagram...hilarious.. The "Leica Look"....Industar M39 lens on a TL2..brilliant
  3. Hello, Could anyone using CZ Jena Sonnar 50/1.5 share your experience regarding focus shift? I got mine in less perfect condition: stiff focus ring and focus shift, unable to focus at infinity wide open. Use it with Leica LTM to M adapter on M8. I brought it to local repairman, but he could only make the focus ring turns a bit smoother. Thus I am wondering, is focus shift just a "normal" behavior of this lens? Have been digging internet about this issue but seems most people talked about the sonnar ZM version. Thanks.
  4. Liebe erfahrene Leica-Freunde, ich besitze ein "älteres" Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f1.5 Objektiv mit Schraubgewinde, welches ich mit einem M-Bajonett-Adapter (ebenfalls von Voigtländer) an meinen analogen und digitalen M-Kameras nutze. Leider hat dieses Objektiv an der digitalen M (240) ein bisschen "Backfocus", die tatsächliche Schärfe-Ebene liegt also weiter hinten als das Schnittbild im Entfernungsmesser. Oder konkret formuliert: wenn ich im Messsucher auf die Augen fokussiere, dann sind auf dem Foto die Augen etwas unscharf, die Schläfen oder Ohren jedoch scharf abgebildet. Nun die Frage an die erfahrenen Leica-Besitzer und -Bastler: Wie kann ich diesen Backfocus am Objektiv korrigieren / justieren? (am Messucher der Kamera liegt es zum Glück nicht, denn andere Objektive fokussieren ja korrekt) Ich bedanke mich sehr herzlich für hilfreiche Tips, Tricks und Hinweise. Christian

  7. I couldn’t find a place to share and / or discuss LTM lenses only so I’m creating this thread and will be adding pictures here from 1930s Leica lenses (and maybe some more modern LTM lenses). For those of you who also shoot with LTM lenses fell free to contribute to this thread
  8. 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 level. But I want to learn your experiences with similar situations if you had any. I read that these things can happen even when you use native lenses on cameras but as far as I know for the last 9 months my Voigtlander 35mm f/2 Ultron didn't damage or let alone scratch the lens mount on my MP. I reattached my Voigtlander after experiencing this situation and shooting another roll of film with it to see if there is any problem. Is there a possibility that I damaged my camera functionally? Can my Voigtlander be attached to the lens mount securely and without further damage either to the lens mount or the lens itself? What are you thoughts on Fotodiox adapters? The adapter that I bought seems that it is made of a material that is not similar to the material that Leica uses on its mount. I would be grateful to read your thoughts. Thanks in advance.
  9. Anyone know what PATT 8665 is ? saw this in an underground shop the other day, phone pic through an old glass cabinet
  10. saw this Very chubby Canadian Silver Summicron LTM today..quite heavy too
  11. I wonder if anyone out there used Canon 85mm f1.8 LTM on Leica III? I'm thinking of getting this lens but I'm afraid that it might be too fat at its base (probably about 60mm). It looks like the slow shutter dial might be in a way to mount it properly.
  12. I am posting this here and in the LHSA section of the Forum. I will give a Zoom presentation for the LHSA at 7.30 pm, British Summer Time, 2.30pm EDT, on 19th August 2020 about 'Choosing and Using Old Leicas'. A link to register for the talk, which is free for LHSA - The International Leica Society – members, is here. https://lhsa.org/2020/06/free-webinar-aug-19-choosing-and-using-old-leicas-with-willian-fagan/#myaccount The talk , while mainly aimed at those with smaller collections and photographers who want to have one or two old or vintage Leica cameras to use, will also be of interest to more experienced collectors and users. ‘Old Leicas’ will include LTM and M models from 1925 up to and including the M6. I will present Leicas from different generations in groups of 3 and will indicate my own personal favourites, which should give rise to varied opinions in the discussion afterwards. I will indicate some of my favourite films. I will also give tips about using older Leica cameras, in particular about the question of loading LTM models and film trimming in advance of loading. I will describe various accessories for Leica cameras and their uses such as viewfinders, lens hoods, winders, cases, close-up equipment and filters. The response to this has been very good, with 135 members from many different countries registered as of yesterday, indicating the increasing interest in vintage Leicas and film photography generally. There are still a number of places available. We hope to have some time for questions and answers afterwards. I hope to see some forum members online as I know that quite a few here are LHSA members.

  13. Does anyone know if there are any LTM versions of the Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm ?
  14. spotted this today, which model is this ?

  16. Hi there, I've recently come into ownership of a mint Summaron 35mm 2.8 lens. After some quick research I believe it is the original ltm mount. There is no red dot, and the lens focuses down to 1m. It comes with the original caps, bubble and the lens hood. Its in mint condition. I will upload pictures shortly but just wondered in todays market whats a good average price these lenses go for? Thanks Alex
  17. Hi. Used a Leitz M39 to Leica m Adapter on my M10 with a summaron 35/2.8 lens. The rangefinder coupling is not working and my M10 terminates the liveview witin seconds and sets back the manual lens selection to ‚auto‘. Does anybody have an explanation/solution? Thx a lot!

  19. I'm not sure whether I've had bad luck with getting lenses to fit on cameras, or if this is a common problem with the M system. My first Leica combo was an M3 SS with Summicron 50 V2. Since the body and lens shipped together, there was no problem getting them to mount. Next, I purchased an Ultron 28 f2. The lens fit into the mount, but I couldn't get it to click into place. Took it to a repair shop, and the owner basically got the lens to fit through brute force - said Voigtlander QC wasn't great and that this was basically to be expected. I used the lens like this for a couple of months, but it would often "unclick" itself somehow, so I eventually traded it for a LTM Skopar 28mm. Same thing happened with the first adapter - couldn't get it it to click in place. Went back to the shop, and was given a replacement that 'magically' worked without problems. Recently, I traded the M3 for an M4-P and, lo and behold, neither the adapted Voigtlander nor Summicron will even fit into the mount, let alone click. Thus out of 6 total Lens/body combos (2 bodies and 4 lenses/adapters), 4 have been faulty. I'd simply put it down to a service error or wear and tear, but the fact that this has occurred between unrelated lenses and bodies makes me skeptical. Has anyone had a similar experience? Am I doing something wrong?!
  20. A Pal posted this on Instagram, thought id share it here, love the last sentence > Even after 100 years, cameras haven't made much progress, except for "procedure". もっとも使いにくいライカ』 手元にあるこのカメラは、1928年製のライカB型(本国ドイツでは、Ⅰ型コンパー付という)の後期モデルである。購入した浅草のHカメラの話では、前モデルA型から転用したものではないかとのこと。 オールドカメラには様々な作法があるが、フィルム巻き上げとシャッターチャージが別個になっているこのカメラを使うには、①フィルムを巻き上げる、②距離を設定、③絞りを設定、④レンズ内のシャッターをチャージ、⑤チャージを解除して撮影、という多くの手順を踏む。 露出計がないだけでも大変なのに、楽ちんなデジカメに慣れた我々にはとても厄介なカメラだろう。このB型で唯一誇れるのは、低速シャッタースピードがはじめて使えるようになった点だろう。それにしても、90年以上前に作られたこのカメラでも、今のフィルムでそこそこの写真が撮れる。 100年経っても、「作法」を除けば、カメラはそれほど進歩していない。 
  21. I own a summitar 5cm f 1.2 from the W.Haven batch can some one give me more information about this lens, now I use it every day I am a fine art professional thanks ruchky
  22. Hi all, Received my M9 recently, so I've been looking at ways to get all my old lenses 6bit coded. I've forgotten to change the lens selection almost every time I've changed lenses, it is getting quite anoying when it comes to post processing. First one I've coded is the CV 35mm Ultron ƒ/1.7. I got a chinese made (Kipon) screwmount adaptor from eBay with ready-milled slots for black dots to be drawn on. The only problem is that when mounted the lens is rotated about 30 degrees from where it should be on the body. Doesn't seen to affect the focus, but it's a little annoying. Is this a common problem? I'm thinking of getting the original Voigtlander adaptor milled, if that's possible somewhere here in the UK. The shots I've taken so far are here: Steve's M9 photos if anyone's interested. Cheers, Steve
  23. Hello, my newly arrived ltm Nikkor Q 13.5cm has me a little puzzled about something. Query: when attached to my M8 should the lens' D.O.F. Scale be landing at top dead center? Using a known to be good 28/90 ltm to m adapter the d.o.f scale is lining up about halfway over toward the frame preview lever. The tripod block is equally out of alignment with the bottom of the camera. I put my CV 28 back on the adapter and it's d.o.f scale still lands top center like before, put the Nikkor on it and confirmed it still lines up off kilter when bayoneted onto the camera. Help! :-D I'm puzzled. And I can't find a clear pic on google or flickr of a ltm nikkor on a M body which answers my query. Thanks. Richard in Michigan
