I have an offer of this lens at hand, like new, decent price: https://en.leica-camera.com/Photography/Leica-S/Leica-S-Lenses/TS-APO-Elmar-S-120MM-f-5.6-ASPH Any experience with it on the S? (I know it is a a Schneider-Kreuznach design also available on other cameras)
Hello all, I'm new to this forum but not to Leica. I've used a few digital M's over the last few years including the M8, M9 and recently an MM. I enjoy the system hugely and have used it for mainly street and travel photography. I use a 28mm summicron, and 50mm lux. Occasionally I do architectural photography for which I get paid. In the past I have used a combination of nikon and canon dslrs usually with 17/24mm tilt shift lenses or Zeiss primes with a nikon 800 or 5D. In the past I haven't really done enough commercial work to justify buying into a full system. Sometimes I buy lenses as I need them and sometimes I hire. When I am not doing paid work I always prefer to use a Leica. I have used an M9 in the past for architectural work but its not ideal. Recently I have been offered a large architectural job to photograph a number of completed projects for an architect. I need to choose a system for the job and wondered whether a M10 with a canon adaptor would be a good choice. The live view would be a big help and i think the DR is good enough. I've been thinking of replacing the MM with an M240 anyway but I am a little nervous of using it commercially for this type of work. I don't really want to buy into a dslr system again unless I have to but they do have their uses. If I need to then I would get a Nikon 810 although the nikon tilt shift are not that good in my opinion. Any advice on the use of tilt shifts with the M240 for commercial work would be appreciated and please be frank about any shortfalls with the combination. Many thanks in advance. Paul
