  1. Hi all, I've been shooting a Leica M10-R for about 8 months now and I love it! However, I recently ran into issues apply lens profiles in LR. I just received my first 3rd party lens, the Voigtlander 90mm APO Skopar 2.8. I just realized that there is no lens profile applied and I'm not sure what I should do. The lens detection automatically selected "R-Adapter-M." I see that the other option is to turn it off, which I'd rather not do, as I have a few Leica lenses. The lens profile options in LR does not list this lens. Any suggestions? I'm a little lost and I have a trip coming up where I was hoping to use this lens extensively. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  2. I'm not sure whether I've had bad luck with getting lenses to fit on cameras, or if this is a common problem with the M system. My first Leica combo was an M3 SS with Summicron 50 V2. Since the body and lens shipped together, there was no problem getting them to mount. Next, I purchased an Ultron 28 f2. The lens fit into the mount, but I couldn't get it to click into place. Took it to a repair shop, and the owner basically got the lens to fit through brute force - said Voigtlander QC wasn't great and that this was basically to be expected. I used the lens like this for a couple of months, but it would often "unclick" itself somehow, so I eventually traded it for a LTM Skopar 28mm. Same thing happened with the first adapter - couldn't get it it to click in place. Went back to the shop, and was given a replacement that 'magically' worked without problems. Recently, I traded the M3 for an M4-P and, lo and behold, neither the adapted Voigtlander nor Summicron will even fit into the mount, let alone click. Thus out of 6 total Lens/body combos (2 bodies and 4 lenses/adapters), 4 have been faulty. I'd simply put it down to a service error or wear and tear, but the fact that this has occurred between unrelated lenses and bodies makes me skeptical. Has anyone had a similar experience? Am I doing something wrong?!
  3. I just received the new Voigtlander 28/2 asph Ultron in chrome from PopFlash in Thousand Oaks, California: www.popflash.com. Tony Rose's company is a joy to deal with. I enjoy 28mm lenses. I shoot with a Leica Q, the pre-asph f2.8 Elmarit V4 and the "new" f5.6 Summaron with an M10. Each lens images a bit differently. Voigtlander has really produced an amazing optic with the new 28/2 Ultron. This lens represents a significant improvement in their design and manufacturing capabilities for VM mount rangefinder lenses. It has edge sharpness at f2 with an M10 when coded as a 28 Summicron. I had the previous 28/2 Ultron lens. It as no slouch in the center but you had to stop down to f4 or f5.6 to get real edge sharpness. This new Ultron delivers edge sharpness at f2. This small chrome lens has some heft that reminds you of lenses from a generation ago. The bayonet lens hood is also a nice touch. Here's a photo I took today of a few books as a tribute to Erwin Puts who passed away. I miss his commentary on almost everything Leica. Stay healthy & be well. Richard
  4. Hi All: I recently rediscovered this lens while thinking about a trip. After I started using it again, I am finding my way into the wide-wide perspective of the 21mm. I haven’t been using it for “photography” yet, only for family outings. Noticing quite a few questions about this lens on the forum, it seems a photo thread would be appropriate. I’ll start! M10P
  5. Sunset at Vestrahorn, in Iceland, a location offering much more than the famous mountain’s silhouette to those willing to explore it. Leica SL, Voigtlander 15mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters. Thank you for watching, best regards Vieri .
  6. I am trying to find direct comparison of VM f1.2 lens, 35mm vs 40mm, looks not easy, anyone who has both can share experience on M camera? thank you.
  7. Here is my review of the Voigtlander 21mm f1.4 - in short: I really like it! https://www.erwinhartenbergphoto.com/post/wide-angle-wonder-how-i-ended-up-with-a-voigtlander-21-mm-f1-4-nokton-asph-vm
  8. Hi there, I purchased the Voigtlander 35mm f2 Ultron about 6 months ago at my local Leica store. I have a problem regarding the focus ring; it's a bit loose in a way where I can move the focus ring horizontally and vertically (about a mm or so). Its not a big movement or anything but I can feel the loose when I'm trying to accurately focus an image. I've never seen anyone mentioning this problem from this lens., or any Voigtlander lens in this matter. I wonder if any user had such an issue or if I'm getting crazy about small stuff. Thanks in advance for the answers, Renaud

  14. In the half term break I had a day where my son was at nursery and my wife at work. This meant I had a rare opportunity of having a day to myself. I had no idea what to do with myself. I decided to set off with the dog walking with the goal being to reach a local village called Affetside. The village is on the old Roman Road and has a lovely pub called the Pack Horse. My wife's family always called the The Pack Horse Inn "The Skull" as behind the bar is a human skull purported to be that of the executioner of the Earl of Derby. Anyway, I took along my M9 50 Summicron and CV15mm. The 15mm I am still getting used to and finding the best way to 'tame' it. I hope you enjoy the series.

  19. I know I'm going to open a can of worms with this thread, but I would like to know if there is anyone out there that is using or has used voigtlander glass with the M8. What kinds of issues if any and what successes. Also, is there a way to code the voigtlander lenses for the Leica digital rangefinders? I have an M8 and I want to buy some fast glass - particularly 35mm and 75mm focal lengths. I have a limited budget and the Leica lenses hold their value well, so no luck on used gear either. I also had a chance to shoot an M9 recently and was told by the Leica rep that the M9 is going to be a lot more sensitive to coding and the glass used. Please, any comments will help. Thanks, RW

  21. Hello everyone, I was lucky to have find this original 1950's Voigtlander Nokton 50mm 1.5. Can anyone tell what's the value of this vintage gem? I almost find no info on value from this original version. Thank you
  22. 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!
  23. I took some photos at the Whitney the other day. This photo of Shapolsky et al displayed some peculiar focus on the right side of the photo. Looking at the text, it looks like there is motion blur on the text on the right, but not on the text on the left. Is this just a common type of focus blur on wide-open, wide-angle shots? Or could there be something going on with the lens or camera (M9)?
