  1. Hi guys, I am sure this topic is covered over and over again, but I can't help starting a new thread to help me out in a very difficult decision. It feels like a very difficult decision anyway. Some background: I have been photographing for the past 15 years, and for a few of those professionally. I have been a strong Nikon fan throughout (sorry for swearing in the church), but have also owned and used a lot of film cameras, such as Mamiya, Hasselblad 2000FCW, Canon and Nikon 35mm film cameras. I would say i am a fairly decent photographer with, maybe, a bigger passion and lust than talent. :) Two years ago soon my son was born, and I just didn't bring the big cameras with me any longer, and I missed capturing those moments. I stopped all professional photography to make time for family and my day job. I sold all my other cameras, DSLRs and film alike to buy a new, smaller, more handy one. That I actually would bring with me everywhere and take photos. I never bought one, and now I miss I so much. So I started the hunt for the best camera for ME. I have been googling, foruming all across, and I just don't know how to drill it down any further and decide on the actual camera to buy. One thing I do know is that it is going to be a Leica. I just love Leicas philosophy, the picture quality, the "to the roots" thing, and I have decided once and for all that now is the time for me to finally own a Leica. I also know that I am on a budget. Coming in at a total of 2000 USD would be ideal - but if course, Leica is not cheap and there are many factors here. So anywhere between 1000-3000 USD is something I look at. For that money you could buy either a Leica CL kit brand new, Leica TL2 brand new, a used Leica Q, used Leica M9. I am not a rangefinder guy really, but I really like the concept. However, I will use the camera for many different scenarios such as travel photo, family photo, art works that I do, and just general hobby/art photography. I don't do any studio work any longer, so that I don't need, I don't do street photography in that sense, and I don't to long tele situation photography like concerts or sports. So basically, I do everyday photography and would like my photos to be nice to have, maybe frame them, and if I find time again start taking art work photos again. But let's focus on travel, everyday life typ photo. Now - what do you guys think? Where should I place my bets? I guess many of you have tried many of the cameras - which one do you believe I will be happier with? Thank you so much! I appreciate all and any input!
  2. Hi everyone! Nice to finally make the decision to join this community. I made the switch to Leica from Nikon last year when I purchased the CL with a 23mm Summicron f2. I absolutely love the camera and the setup for the type of photography I do. at the moment, my current setup is the CL with a f/1.4 Super Takuma 50mm (thorium glass model).
  3. Hi, I want to to know how good are the 50mm crop of the Q2 because I like that kind of prospective... A CL with the TL 35 Summilux 1.4 lens (so 50mm equivalent as is an APSC) is equal or better? Thanks to all who can help me

    UPDATE: Price is negotiable, please send me your best offer if interested! Hello, Up for sale is a new in box Leica TL (8854) in black, that I had purchased as a backup camera but never got around to using. The camera is in new condition, and has only been powered on to upgrade to the latest firmware v2.2 prior to me putting it up for sale. Included with the camera are all items originally shipped with the camera (Owner's manual, cables, battery, power supply with international plug assortment, strap, body cap, etc.), as well as all original packaging including the outer box. The protective film is still on the back of the camera as well. The horizontal lines that appear in some of the photos of the rear touch screen are only manufacturing marks on the protective sticker, and are not on the LCD themselves. Standard UPS ground shipping within the continental United States is included with the price of the camera. The camera is located within the Chicagoland area - local pickup is welcome as well. More images in higher resolution may be viewed by clicking on the link below: LEICA TL IMAGE GALLERY Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible! Thank you for your interest and best regards, John

    Leica TL2 black body, boxed and complete (straps, cable, instructions, charger, alternate power socket pins). Additional two batteries (3 total), matching Visoflex EVF Type 020, steel lug pins (2 nr), black dummy pins (2 nr), lug pin removal tool. Excellent condition, no significant marks, fully working with no problems. The outer box is a bit tatty at the closure point but intact. I bought the TL2 a year ago, used, from the Leica Shop, Vienna, as a back up for my CL for travel. I would keep it but it has been replaced by a full-frame Sigma fp. The TL2 sells for just under £1000 on ebay, and the Visoflex for another couple of hundred pounds. Including the Visoflex and batteries, this is a bargain! Postage or courier charges will be added at cost, to be agreed before final sale.

  9. I wanted to see how well (or poorly) my TL2 could be coaxed into producing infrared or near-infrared photographs. So I started this informational topic to pass along some of what I found out. I used infrared film only very occasionally during my predominantly film days, but there were times when it was just the ticket. One of my favorite B&W films was and still is Ilford's near-infrared SFX-200 processed in PMK Pyro, both for normal and occasionally for near-infrared photos (but that's another story). It turns out that the TL2's sensor collects an impressive amount of infrared light. (Simple test: try viewing the business end of an IR TV remote through the camera. If you can see the IR diode--I assume it's a diode--light up when pressed, then you've got something to work with.) The TL2 shows the diode very well. So did the X2, but the X2 didn't fare nearly so well once I tried using it with IR filters. The exposure times were way too long. Getting the TL2 converted to Infrared is an option, and one that will preserve exposure times we are more used to. Filters, as you all know, slow exposure times down. But if you only use IR occasionally, as I do, IR conversion of the camera isn't a desirable option. So I experimented with filters, and the results are as follows: I used three filters on the TL2 in various types of scenes. The three filters were--in order of ascending visible light filtration--first, the B+W 092 (which Schneider says "...blocks visible light up to 650 nm, and at just below 700 nm it allows 50% to pass through .... From from 730nm to 2,000 nm the transmittance is very high at over 90%"). The second (perhaps the Goldilocks filter) was the HOYA R72 Infrared, which is designed to pass 95% of the light between 760nm and 860nm. The third, and darkest, filter was the B+W 093 which . . . well, I'll let them tell it: "blocks the entire visible light spectrum. It therefore appears black and in contrast to the B+W 092 infrared filter 695, it enables shots in pure infrared without the visible red. The transmittance does not exceed 1% until 800nm, but increases to 88% at 900nm." I'll put results in subsequent posts.
