  1. Unter dem Titel: "Grüne Hölle Nürburgring" sind im Leitz-Park-Wald Wetzlar , entlang des Leica Naturlehrpfads, 75 Bilder des Fotografen HP Seufert zu sehen. Seufert war jahrelang für Auto Motor Sport tätig. Die Foto Outdoor Ausstellung ist frei zugänglich.
  2. I have just spent almost an entire day at the Leitz-Park in Wetlzar, and thought I would share some thoughts and observations.... I made an request for an appointment well in advance, and explained which products I use (M + various lenses; S + various lenses), and that I would love to have a short tour if possible. My appointment was 8am today. It seems like a rather early start, doesn't it? But in actual fact the workshop staff begin work at 6am and finish between 1pm and 3pm. I was looked after by Mrs. Olga Brunda, a customer care staff member who is a great credit to Leica. She is knowledgeable, passionate about Leica, very courteous and thoughtful. As we began the tour and were chatting she was working out as we went where to spend time and where to skim. She said that she diverted some of our time away from historical matters (because I had read a lot on the subject - Mr. Puts excellent books and so on), and focused instead on technical ones - things we were seeing. In other words, my tour was tailored. She later said that an hour had been allocated, but we spent more than that, and it was absolutely fascinating. First of all the Leitz-Park is a superb super modern design (as you'd expect), that sits up on a plateau above the old town of Wetzlar. Nearby are other optical-technical companies that sprang out of the Leitz business, either directly, or in association. Part of my tour took me past some windows into manufacturing and repair areas that anyone visiting can see. A clever interactive projected touch-and-play screen sits superimposed over the window into an area where glass elements were being lacquered. By touching the window on the projected menu you can watch a series of videos on lens manufacture. But Mrs. Brunda also took me past other windows where aspherical elements were being ground, various lens assembly bays, repair bays for M, and S cameras and lenses. Of course some windows were shuttered to protect prying eyes from you-know-what! Meanwhile, prior to the tour, Mrs. Brunda offered if I would like an Leica cameras or lenses attended to. I gave her my MP-240, which was checked, sensor cleaned, and a 35mm Summicron ASPH which was checked and re-calibrated. I also gave her my S-E, 24, 45 and 100mm S lenses which I had with me and these were all checked, and the sensor cleaned. While waiting for all that work to be done, a specialist in the Leica S showed me how to change the focusing screen (I purchased the matt screen while I was there), and then another gentleman from the Leica Akademie spent a few minutes with me giving me a few tips on technique. I then spent time in the Leica shop. This deserves special mention because not only were the staff very helpful, but you can try any and every product Leica make - every camera, every lens, accessories, binoculars. They have the lot. Most Leica boutiques have a few items you can try at any one time, but how often do you find they don't have what you want, or moreover, don't have two items you might want to compare? Today, for example, I took the 4/90 Marco-Elmar-M and the 2/90 APO-Summicron-M ASPH ,together with the Leica Macro adaptor M, and took various photographs both indoors, and outdoors, at different distances and apertures, so I now have a pile of files I can compare. This will help me decide if and when I buy another 90mm. But equally, should I have wanted to, I could have gone through the entire S lens range, etc. There is also the staff canteen, which you have access to (I had lunch in there for a very reasonable price) as well as a Leitz-Park Cafe for coffee and cake (I didn't go in). Also on display is a great collection of cameras, lenses, binoculars, and all sorts of Leitz stuff on display going back to the beginning. Have you ever seen the back of the S1 for instance? In all the photographs I have seen of this only the front is shown. There were a lot of items there I had ever seen before and it was very interesting (for me!). There are, as you would expect, many photographs on display, including exhibitions from the Barnack competition, and various historic photographs taken by 20th and 21st century Leica users. I spent probably half a day there. That's probably more than most would want or need, but I didn't feel any time was wasted. Even without an appointment I would recommend a visit - the exhibitions, displays, video/window peeping (one window) is there for visitors to see, and the flagship store there is great for trying items out. But I would recommend making an appointment if you can.
  3. Hi, my rather new MP is suffering from the "underexposed frame syndrome" (and also a lot of software failures). My reasearch here indicates that at least the shutter has to be replaced. My research also indicated that Leica service is rather slow. What can I do to speed things up? Any advise? I have to time this carefully, as I have no replacement camera. There exisits or existed an express service, but asking google I can not find any current information. Has this service be discontinued? Any other hints that worked for you for speeding up things? Thank you, Bernd
  4. I received an email this afternoon from Lars Netopil about the newly formed Wetzlar Camera Auctions https://www.wetzlarcameraauctions.com/en-gb/home Lars is involved, as is Jo Geier, formerly of Westlicht/Leica shop in Vienna and now with his own business called 'Mint & Rare'. The first auction is planned for October 2019. At the Westlicht Auction last week, the CEO of Leica AG, which now owns the business, announced that the Westlicht Auction was moving to Wetzlar in 2019. I believe that I read somewhere that Rahn Auction in Frankfurt may also move to Wetzlar . Time will tell whether these matters are related, I suppose. William
  5. Neueröffnung des Ernst Leitz Museums in Wetzlar im Oktober 2021 unter dem Motto: "Fotografie sehen, gestalten, erleben" In Wechselausstellungen werden die Bilder bekannter Fotografen zu sehen sein. Das Museum läd ein zum interaktiven Handeln zwischen Geschichte und neuerer Technologie.
  6. I was fortunate to receive an invite to the opening of the new Ernst Leitz Museum in Wetzlar on 30th of September. My article about the new museum is here. https://www.macfilos.com/2021/10/11/opening-of-the-ernst-leitz-museum-in-wetzlar/ The museum is more than just about vintage Leica cameras and so I will also post a thread about this on Barnack's Bar. Any Leica enthusiast should enjoy a visit. William

  8. Hi there, my name is Wim, I’m from the Netherlands and I am new on this forum. I came here because i bought a Old black leica camera in a thriftstore. I got curious about the name of the model, if i can make it work, it’s value, and if i could clean and (if needed) repair it myself or if its better to bring it to an expert. I already did some research on the forum but i couldnt find my exact model and lens. Here are some pictures. I hope you can help me out with some info!
  9. Alle SW-Aufnahmen sind mit der LEICA S entstanden.

  14. I just want to draw your attention to two articles about todays ground-breaking ceremony at Wetzlar Leitz Park: Lokal Newspaper: Wetzlar: Leica: Spatenstich f Forum thread (with pics) from Holger1 http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-forum/leica-kundenforum/235802-leica-spatenstich-wetzlar.html#post2050214
  15. Holger 1 posted this link to an article of the local Wetzlar journal Wetzlar/Solms: 11-J in the german part of the forum. The best is to use an online translator. I´ll only summarize the important facts: _ Leica will move in spring 2013 to the Wetzlar´"Leica Park" _ in autumn Leica will present their detailed plans about to the public. _ Leica increased the lens production from 63 lenses to 120 lenses /day. It is planned to increase it to 240 lenses /day.
  16. Wer einen Besuch in Solms plant (machen muss), der kann neben dem Opticparcours (Optikparcours der Stadt Wetzlar), den wir im Rahmen unseres Forumtreffens begehen, neuerdings auch unser Wetzlarer "Dunkelkaufhaus". DUNKELKAUFHAUS WETZLAR besuchen.
  17. Hi all, I have with me a black 35mm summicron. The inscription on the top says in caps 'SUMMICRON 1:2/35 LEITZ WETZLAR' with a serial number 275****. Now I am a bit confused, because according to the lists I've consulted on the net, with that serial number this lens should have been made in Canada and probably inscribed as Leitz Canada? At the bottom of the lens barrel the inscription says in captial letters 'LENS MADE IN GERMANY'. Do I have here a production line freak or have I misunderstood the history of it and that it is a common item? Help much appreciated. Thank you.
