  1. Is early days I realise, but I wonder if we could please have a thread devoted to third party lens performance on the SL please. In my case I would be interested in experiences with Zeiss F mount lenses (ZF/.2), particularly the 1.4/55 Otus, 1.4/85 Otus, and 2/135 Apo-Sonnar. But I also have a couple of C/Y lenses. I'm sure there are others here interested, as well as those with Canon and Nikkor glass. If I end up with and SL I will report first hand, but I haven't decided to pull the trigger yet (I had wished for higher resolution and IBIS), but there is a lot in this camera that appeals, including it looking like a good tool for some R glass I have. So, anyone with an SL and experience with third party lenses, please share your experiences. Thanks in advance.
  2. Has anybody used yet the AFS NIKKOR 14-24mm 2,8 G ED on the SL? ​What adapter are available? Can you post a link to this theme. I could not find any meaningful post. Thanks Hans https://plus.google....gmbpt=true&fd=1 https://www.facebook.com/khunhans

    Nikon Girls

    Leica T + 90mm f/2.0 APO Summicron M ASPH "Nikon Girls"
  4. I've been into photography from August 2008: relatively speaking, I am an FNG* (just look it up!) I would be interested to know peoples' history of camera models and what they were used for. Here's mine: Nikon D40 - perfect newbie camera with both auto and manual functioning, and in-camera editing. Nikon P100 - megazoom and nothing else to recommend it. Canon PowerShot SX110 IS - decent point and shoot. Canon PowerShot SX30 IS - huge zoom, lots of bells and whistles. Nikon Coolpix S9100 - point and shoot, pocket size, decent zoom. Minolta Dynax 5 - my first 35mm camera, very steep learning curve. Zenit ET - manual 35mm SLR, starting to learning old analogue skills. Casio EX-H15 - although low end by current standards, Casio seemed to produce some decent models at the time. Minolta Dynax 7 - an upgrade on the Dynax 5. Sony A500 - excellent dSLR with advanced features, compatible with Minolta lenses. Canon G9 - advanced compact, small sensor, yet surprising image quality. Fuji HS10 - excellent bridge camera which had a habit of freezing! Leica V-LUX - one of the best bridge cameras, thank God for LeicaSonic! Fuji X-E1 - much heralded compact system camera, used it for a while, but it's not that good once you start putting it through it's paces. Minolta Dynax 9 - incredibly advanced 35mm SLR, a joy to use. Sony A900 - a great dSLR, stunning film-like images. Leica M6 - a classic, end of story. Leica M9 - great model, had to send back as I couldn't get to grips with it! Voigtlander Bessa R2 - aside from build quality (still better than most), just as good as any Leica 35mm RF. Leica M4 - the beginning of my darkroom obsession! Pentax 645n - a great introduction to medium format, still holding its well-deserved value. Hasselblad 500c - another all-time classic, ideal way to learn all the core skills. Nikon F - the original and, some would say, still the best! Over the years, all the cameras have been exchanged, sold used, or put on commission sale at varios dealers. I have learned how to spot a bargain, then sell it for a decent price or do a good trade-in. .....and my current line-up Leica X2 - stunning images, KISS-Keep It Simple Stupid! Leica X-Vario - stunning lens, simple to use (like me!) Nikon F2 - back to using 35mm after a break! For the record, I have certain problems of a psychiatric nature, including obsessive tendencies, as you can see! Thank you and have a nice day!
  5. Hello to all, I would like to request your help/advice. I currently own and use a Nikon F3, but feel the need for something new to help with street/travel photography. After doing a fair bit of research I have come up with buying either the M5 or the M6ttl. I can't actually go to a store and handle these cameras and I will be buying online, I am drawn to the M5 but the worry is I am buying something bigger than my F3 when I am looking for something less intimidating when on the street? however the shutter dial and viewfinder look like great additions. With the M5 it seems the Shutter speed in the viewfinder would also be useful and perhaps better than the LED's in the M6? Could anybody who owns an M5 post some size comparison photos to give me some idea of what it looks like next to the F3? How Do you find the M6 TTL, LED system? I will be predominantly using a 35mm and 50mm lens to start with. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated, Thanks !
  6. I'm considering to buy me a Leica T as a second camera for street photography. I owe already a Nikon D800 with several nikon and sigma full frame lenses. Is there a possibility mounting these lenses on the Leica T? If so, are there limitations?
  7. OK I have just been given an LS5000 (I thought I was being given an old SCSI Coolscan but no!). I obviously need to run it via software and my only previous experience was with Nikon's own which is no longer an option as far as I am aware. I'm Mac based and running OSX 10.9.5 on a MBP so I do have USB ports (2) or could use a Thunderbolt with adapter if this gives any advantage ('though I doubt it would). Any suggestions given that I have a vast number of slides, some still in filmstrip form, and that speed whilst not essential would be useful? I have looked at both the Silverfast and Vuescan sites and both claim to be good; any others to consider?
  8. I'm an (extremely happy) Q owner and also shoot film with a Nikon FE with 24, 50, 90, and 80-200 glass (all, AI manual) I'm thinking of the Nikon 7200, which is a half sensor and which will work perfectly (increasing focal length by 50%) with my old lenses, so that I can also buy the fantastic AF-S Nikkor 300 f/4E PF ED VR that with the half sensor will turn into a 450 for birding. However, after the Q, I just can't fully get my head around any digital camera besides the Leica: just too many buttons and too inelegant. I really love what I read about the CL and have thought about it for my non-Q alternative (which will make all the lenses the same focal length as the Nikon 7200). However, I also want to use all my Nikon glass, esp. my contemplated 300. Or is there any obvious (not more than ~ $2k) alternative for birding telephoto (equivalent of at least 400) with the CL? Is anyone shooting Nikon glass with their CL? how and what's their experience? many thanks.
  9. I like to use my SL (&M) at events sometimes; They're less 'in your face' and back-breaking than lugging around a large Nikon with flash. Particularly at more intimate gigs. Always used to work fine, but I got caught out at a recent shoot with the SL. I've used various Nikon flashes and currently use an SB-910 (in manual mode). With firmware 2.2 and below, the only oddity I saw was when changing ISO or white bal - the reading would jump around as you turned the dial, however it would make the change ok. Not a deal breaker, just an inconvenience as you had to double check on the info screen where you were, to be safe. However, with firmware 3, things have changed. I used to have exposure preview on, so I could see my ambient exposure and then use the flash to light the foreground subjects (for parties and that kind of thing - people shots typically with bounce flash where poss, or direct). If exposure preview is on now - the LCD & VF displays both toggle on & off repeatedly between exp preview going on and off - so the screen flashes between dark & light which makes focusing hard / nigh-on guess work. Trying to find the issue, I tried reverting firmware back, but you can't do that, so next, switched exposure preview off and the screen becomes stable again. It's usable like this, but obviously, you lose real time view of your ambient exposure. Another tweak that I found worked is to ever so slightly pull the flash forward out of the hotshoe. Then the problem stops happening even with exposure preview on, but the flash is not secure. I know Nikon flashes probably aren't officially supported, but as I say - never had problems before in manual power settings mode and didn't want to lay out for a dedicated Leica flash, when I have all these others. I'm also now wondering if my Profoto (Nikon version) Air Remote will work ok. Something I love using in the studio, or on location with various F-mount glass. Anyone else using the SL in this way / seeing a problem? It's such a versatile camera, hopefully it can be sorted, as the option to choose your flash / triggering system, especially if you already own something else is fantastic.
  10. Hi All, Anyone know if there is an adapter for Nikon D lenses for my SL? Thanks
  11. Hey guys, I wrote a new article! In this article I will go over my workflow for photos taken on film rather than digital. I will be using software suite Nikon Scan 4, and will go over the settings I use for scanning with the Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED. This article will be most of interest to anyone using Nikon Scan 3 or 4 with any of the Nikon Coolscan film scanners. Some features and options will vary per scanner but most will be the same. It will also be interesting for people who use other scanners and software but will need to take this information as is and ‘translate’ it into their own software suites functions and options. Please read the article here: Scanning film with Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 - Jip van Kuijk I would love to receive comments and feedback here on the forum or in the comment section on my website.

  14. "Engpässe bei Elektronik" so lautet die Überschrift eines Artikels in der heutigen gleichgeschalteten württembergischen Presse "Sonntag aktuell" (leider auch in Baden erhältlich) Anbei ein kurzer Auszug: Da dieses Periodika (Zeitung möchte ich es nicht nennen) nicht die Speersitze des investigativen Journalismaus darstellt, vermute ich das dieser Artikel ein Zusammenbrau aus einem grössenern Beitrag aus der Wirtschaftswoche (der Name taucht mal auf) ist. Steht dort etwas detaillierter um was es handelt... * Sonntag aktuell, 22.05.11, Printausgabe S 5
  15. Anyone out there have any information on using the Leica Digiscope adapter with a Nikon ED scope? Leica states that the physical dimensions of the adapter are made to be compatible with the wide eypeice for the scope. Could this be used with a standard variable eyepeice for the Nikon? If the consensus is that the above will not work, how about a custom adapter? Could one be made that would work on a Nikon scope? TIA
  16. Hi, Has anybody used the adapter Nikon AIS to Leica M? Can you tell me if it's any good on a M9? Are there any issues? Thank you.
  17. Hi all, I'm brand new to the leica world and don't know so much about it. I just stepped into Leica these days and thought I'd like to own one. I think it could be much better than my Nikon D700+big lenses for candid street photography shots. But now the question is what body+lens to buy? I have narrowed it down to M4P, M6 or M8 + Elmarit 28mm f2.8. I'm fascinated by film although probably buying a digital would be more practical (though EUR1000 more expensive). Maybe being a Leica beginner I could have a quicker learning curve with digital. Also while familiarising and playing with it I'll throw away more shots(which in film costs more). Also the reason why you see only one lens there is because I want to start with only one to test the system and get familiar with it. Also because of cost issues obviously. I'd like if possible to keep the number of items low(I just have too much nikon equipment, will sell something...:-)). Maybe if I like it I'll keep 2 lenses(28 and 90) after a while. Does this make sense? Any advices from who did this before me? Thanks
  18. I know this would be a strange question, like why would someone wanna use Nikon lens on a Leica M6/MP?! Well...I am on a tight budget. I can probably afford to get a M6 second hand body, but maybe awhile till I have enough funds for a proper Leica lens. I have a Nikon FM2 with a few MF lenses. Can I use those on a M6 with the right adaptor?
  19. The S2 is rattling Nikons cage. Must be an engineering prototype rather than a pre-production model, so one would hope for some size reduction.
  20. Cos ähm Zeiss - scheint es geschafft zu haben das Japankartell zu knacken. Zukünftige ZF.2 Objektive für N unterstützen dank einer elektronischen Schnittstelle (CPU) alle wichtigen Betriebsarten wie Zeit-, Blenden-, Programmautomatik oder manuelle Belichtungseinstellung auch bei nicht AI-kompatiblen Kameragehäusen.

  21. Dear Forum, After years of hesitation and even more years of using digital, I purchased an M6 with a 50. One of the reasons is that I want to take more time to make the photograph and put in more thought and care to it. I feel like digital makes it so easy to make an image that sometimes quantity takes over quality. I think I will pay a lab to develop film and then I want to scan film myself and pick only the best for print. Could anybody please suggest a good scanner that does not cost thousands? Greatly appreciate your advice.
  22. I just picked up a used Nikon Coolscan 5000 from eBay-- now my "digital darkroom" is complete. Before I get started installing it, I've heard someone mention Vuescan software before. Would anyone advise using this software over the Nikon stuff they package with the scanner? What are the advantages (if any) of the Vuescan over Nikon's software? Thanks for your opinions! Mike
  23. Hello all I have switched to shooting wedding almost exclusively with film. I say almost, because there are times when I do use my D200. These are generally for the family shots at the ceremony and also times when I want a bit of fill flash. I am usually in the vicinity of about 28mm up to 50mm in my focal lengths on the D200 (equiv). I have not had the opportunity to handle the D-Lux 4, and viewing images on a screen is one thing, but the quality of prints is really my main concern. I find it a burden to carry a second camera system with lenses and a huge slr body, in addition to my 3x m's all with attached lenses. I am toying with the idea of switching out the d200 and going for the d-lux 4 with a viewfinder on top to compliment the m's. How will the image stack up against my D200? Has anyone had experience with the a similar type of dslr to compare to the d-lux? I am not looking to improve on iq, i find the d200 does a great job for what I want. Thanks in advance for any help. Tom
  24. I got impatient waiting for the mythical R10 as successor for the DMR and bought a Nikon D700. I am thinking of having some of my R glass converted to Nikon with the Leitax bayonet and would appreciate feedback from users with first hand experience, pros and cons. Thanks in advance
  25. Hi everyone! I had my first Leica last friday and was a D-Lux 4, after time wondering about a M8 I heard my pocket in those crisis times, and went for the son ;-). I work with DSLR and allways Nikon. (When Nikon f2 was hardworking in Vietnam, Canon was making xerocopiers) D2Xs, with several great lenses (10mm f.2,8, 300mm f2.8, 18-200mm, 70-300mm f.3.5-5.6, AI series: 50mm f1.2 noct, 500mm f.8 reflex, 24mm f2.8 and an old F3 w/speedmotor (stillusable). And allways lliked hard and contrasted images from nikkor lenses and Kodachrome 25, but always being fascinated to try with "this called soft ligth magic colors from Leica", Well sorry for being so dense, but just to say that after 2 days, several hours with my D-Lux 4 and 300 photos after... I'm very impressed, I now what a noct. lens is, but this 2.0-2.8 Vario-Summicron is AMAIZING!!!! I jus begun my contact with the camera but first impression could not be better, and results are GREAT. I wanted a near pro camera to come always with me and I think I found it! I will post you again when pictures would be uploaded yo my site. I also appreciate Capture One to optimize Raw files, only I use.
