  1. I recently found a super deal on a Visoflex 020 being sold by Adorama through auction listed as having major defects; the details described as "** Item Notes: Viewfinder does not switch back to LCD screen properly; Likely proximity sensor issue; May have other issues; Cosmetic condition is E ** However, the price was too good to pass up, less than half price of a brand new one. So I took a chance and bought it. When I received and tried it out, to my surprise, it worked, but there were green lines across the display. The lines went away when I angled the viewfinder to the max 90 degrees angle, but only temporarily. Issue returned when I adjusted the angle of the viewfinder again. I spent the latter half of a Friday evening/night before I pinned the problem down to the LCD connection to the main board. I started disassembling the base module where the unit connects to the camera at the hot shoe. There are four screws at the bottom, then the top of that module can be lifted up and out. There is a swinging door with the tiniest spring that attaches to that top piece, very easy to lose. The door can fall off easily. The hot shoe connection can then be disconnected from the metal hinge assembly by removing two silver screws and pushing back the two plastic tabs securing the connector to the hinge plate. To disassemble the main eyepiece module, the rubber eye "hood" or protector had to be removed; it is held in by double-sided adhesive at the top and bottom inside. Behind that, there are two screws left and right flanking the eyepiece that hold the upper and lower housing together. After I removed those, I spent a lot of time working the housing, trying to figure out if there were any other screws, or if adhesive or tabs were holding them together. Turns out, I took a chance and found out there is a tab on each of the three sides. The bottom comes off, and the main assembly is attached to the top housing. The ribbon flex cable connecting the base module to the eyepiece main module had no signs of damage; connection was fine, and removing/reattaching it did not resolve the green-lines issue. There were no breaks on the flex. However, pushing the flex beneath made the green lines disappear temporarily. So I removed the mainboard from the top housing assembly, and found a misaligned connection between eyepiece LCD and the mainboard: see, the connection is crooked It may have dislodged from the connector after a drop, or perhaps maybe it was never properly installed at the factory. Or maybe the continued adjusting/angling of the viewfinder furthered the loose connection? In any case, removing and reinstalling the connection made the green lines disappear and have not reappeared ever since I reassembled everything together. I tested the eyepiece multiple times on my TL before reassembling everything back together. Gotta say, I'm very happy with the viewfinder. Though it seems to pale in comparison to the viewfinder in my recently acquired CL, it is still a very welcome addition. And very fun to use. I'm not a serious photographer, but I'm slowly working my way into a new hobby.. Some background; I have repaired other people's smartphones in the not too distant past, and I collect and repair vintage Macintosh computers. After my experience with the TL, Leica cameras are working their way into becoming a new part of my collection.
  2. Happy New Year! Now the CL is about a year into the market, I wonder how many could share your experience of your CL with the TL 60mm/f2.8 Macro lens? Is a good combo? Is this lens worthy at this high price? I now only have a 23mm/f2.0 as a "native lens" with a CL, and not really used this system yet, very unfamiliar with it.
  3. Hello, I am being offered a mint condition TL + T 18-56mm lens at a very attractive price. I already have a X Vario which I have enjoyed using for several years, but the slow & unreliable autofocus has frustrated me. Is the autofocus on the TL better than on the X Vario? I know both have a 16mp sensor, but are they the same sensor? How do the JPEGS & DNG files of the two cameras compare? Would I see an improvement from the TL over the X Vario, especially in the jpegs? Finally, is the auto white balance on the TL better than the XV? I’d be most grateful for your thoughts. Thanks in advance. Regards, Firoze
  4. With the launch of the TL2 and the CL this year, Leica has boldly put its weight behind its APSC systems. The cameras look and feel great, though they would undoubtedly benefit from a richer selection of fast lenses to partner with. Personally, I see the TL / CL cameras filling an important void for M shooters. With rangefinders, lengths between 24-50mm tend to hit the sweet spot, and while the fast telephoto lenses render beautifully, manual focusing a 90mm Summicron on a rangefinder for candid street or action is borderline masochistic. In this respect, it would be great to see TL Summicron or Summarit prime equivalents of either the 75, 90, or 135 focal lengths, all with fast auto focus. I know we have the 55mm - 135mm zoom, but F 4.5 is not workable in low light, and the 60mm F2.8 Macro, while gorgeous, is a little too slow to auto focus. I would love to know what other people want to see on the TL lens roadmap. Let us build a little public pressure to ensure that these smart systems get the lenses they deserve.
  5. I am thinking of buying a TL/TL2 camera. Currently there is a new one Leica TL titan for 999EUR (1200 USD) at Leica Store Berlin. And I have a good opportunity to buy fairly new Leica TL2 for 1500 EUR (1850 USD). Does it make sense to save money rather then go for TL2 ? I will be using TL 23/2 cron. And for the second lens I am considering using TL 35/1.4 or 60/2,8. I love the idea of a fairly wide lens such as TL 11-23/3,5-4,5 but I am not quite sure whether aperture is sufficient, if there is not enough light available. thanks for your comments and suggestions Radim
  6. Any news about this camera? It is clear that it is going to appear sooner or later, but WHEN and HOW will it be? If you look at the current product range, there is one or more camera every 1.000 Euros, with a lack at around 3.000€: C and V-Lux: 1.000 Euros TL2: 2.000 Euros + lens small SL (or TL w/EVF): 3.000 + lens Q: +4.000 Euro SL: + 5.000 + lens M: + 6.000 + lens S: etc. etc.... And the TL lens range has a great potential to be used on more then one body only. I believe it will be more a "small" SL rather then a TL with EVF, for which is hard to ask for 3.000 Euro... Better a pro look, with the bulky but acceptable EVF, watertight, heavy, similar to SL but smaller... What do you think? any news?
  7. I just started using my new TL today, and ran into a problem, which I'm sure has a lot to do with my inexperience. I'm a relatively new photographer, and I've mostly only used Canon Rebels, which is what I learned on. I have 2 strobe lights, which I'm triggering with a PocketWizard. With my TL, the viewfinder is too dark to see anything, and when I take the photo, the pictures comes up as fine. If I use settings so that I can see the subject in the viewfinder before the photo, then when I take the photo, it's completely overexposed. What am I doing wrong? With the Canon T6i, it all works perfectly, but with the TL, and all the same settings, I'm having the issue. I'm sure it's something simple, a setting, that I'm not doing correctly. I've looked through the manual and it doesn't tell me anything. I don't understand why, if it is perfectly light enough for me to see the object with my own eyes, it would be almost black, through the viewfinder.
  8. Just curious, has anyone had experience using Voigtlander lenses on the T/TL? (I see that Louis uses a Nikkor 50mm 1.4, which looks excellent. And, Rick P has used the Zeiss Sonnar 50 1.5 with terrific results. I recently started using a Zeiss Planar 50 2.0, which has been quite nice, but was wondering about some faster lenses, as well, thinking that if I were to later acquire the SL 601 they'd serve dual purposes). Specifically, I was considering the Voigtlanders 35mm 1.2 and the 50mm 1.5. Thank you for your thoughts. Rob
  9. Bei der Ersteinrichtung der Leica SL habe ich festgestellt, dass die TL (linke obere SoftKey/Taste) sich nicht individuell belegen lässt. Andere Tasten funktionieren einwandfrei. Das bedeutet, dass nach einer entsprechenden Einrichtung durch längeres Drücken die programmierte Auswahl (bei mir Weissabgleich und Iso) erscheint. Eben nicht bei der TL-Taste oben links. Kennt jemand das Problem ? Für mich scheint es ein Firmware-Bug zu sein. Danke schon mal für Eure Hilfe ?
