  1. I am looking for a Nikon F/G mount adaptor to L mount. There are a lot of $20-30. Models and $125 up models on the market, but very few reviews I left Nikon for Leica because the newer lenses seem to be not as sharp as they were years ago. However, i do have some amazing lenses from a few years ago that i kept when i sold not D5’s. Does anyone have any recommendations for a really good quality adaptor ?
  2. Hello I'm tackling the following issue since ages . I would like to use my 82 Apo Televid as a lens , for various purpose : nature , and possibly astrophotography. A) i'm chasing the leica 42306 adapter (no longer in production, but available in some places) I have a question with this adapter , it's offers a T-mount interface in the back (camera side) but i've seen a female thread. I'm puzzled because I would have been expecting a Male thread, because all the T-mount camera adapter I have seen have F thread in the front. Anybody having experience of such adapter would
  3. 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 sc
  4. 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
  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 S

  7. 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,
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Hi All, Anyone know if there is an adapter for Nikon D lenses for my SL? Thanks
  13. 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
  14. Remember, remember the 5th of november .... [ ...oder so. ] Fakt ist morgen 5ter November um 5:00 GMT wird die neue Nikon DF offiziell vorgestellt. Ein Bild kann man sich heute schon machen: http://nikonrumors.com/2013/11/04/this-is-the-nikon-df.aspx/#more-66660 Die gerüchteten Specs: * The name will be called Nikon DF which stand for “Digital Fusion“ * Nikon FM2 like design, but with a larger pentaprism * Most likely be available in two colors – all black and silver/black (a.k.a. as Panda version) * Standard Nikon F-mount * Pentaprism viewfinder (meaning the
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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.

  19. 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 calle
  20. 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
  21. 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 m
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
