  1. We already have a very extensive 'Mandler Magic' topic, but as much I am keen on Mandler's signature look and his contribution to the "Leica glow", there is another very distinguished gentleman in the 'House of Leica' that as a leader of Leica's optical design team since 2002 gave us a bunch of new high performance M-Lenses and pushed the terms FLE, ASPH and APO towards modern Leica perfection. He was the guy that had the balls to say Dr. Mandler's 75mm Summilux 1.4 was his *least* favorite design and went on to "Make Summilux great again" - all the way down to 21mm. Show us some of the "cli
  2. What are your cravings, needs, wishes and desires regarding M lenses that do not exist yet? 21mm Summicron? Perhaps a 24mm Summicron? A brand new and Karbe - updated 75mm f1.4 Summilux? A new line of affordable budget M lenses? Some vintage revivals? Share your thoughts - within reason of course.
  3. Here's a new video that will help create M lens GAS (as if any of us need help in that area). The Art of the Leica M Lens with Peter Karbe https://vimeo.com/392151658
  4. Here's a question for M camera photographers (film or digital): If you were to choose to work with just one M lens, which would you choose and why? Which focal length? Which maximum aperture? Is the one camera, one lens approach a valid approach or is it an unnecessary limitation? Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this! 😉
  5. I just watched this video by Tony Northrup about full frame vs smaller lenses. He makes some good points about the larger lenses collecting more light due to 'basic physics' But this also has me wondering about M series lenses which traditionally have very good quality ratings despite their small size - where is the trade off? I feel like I am missing something in the way that lens size applies to a rangefinder?
  6. Apart from the $300 Leica service, one way to get lenses coded is to replace the flange, or send it away for coding to a third party. This led me to do some research on flanges. There is a Chinese vendor offering what I call Type I flanges, and also Type II ones. Here is what I found out. Note that:- All measurements in degrees clockwise from the centre of the key as viewed looking at the rear of the lens. Measurement are approximate and have been rounded to what appears to be the nearest whole number. All flanges come in three variations for 28/90, 50/75, or 24/35
