  1. Dear all, I will probably have a trip to Namibia and Zambia next August. I am a long time M shooter and shoot exclusively with my Ms. For Namibia and Safaris I plan to get a new body and longer lenses. From what I have read, I should go for a body allowing long telephotos such as 200-500m, 300m with 2* extender, ... and maybe even with an APS-C body (Nikon D500 ??). I'd like the idea to get a body that can also be used with my M lenses, but so far, the longest SL-zoom seems on the short side ? (and there is no extender, am I right ??) Thanks for any comments / point of vues ! Didier
  2. Douglas Herr is my personal hero and foundation for everything Leica R. He so much symbolizes the core Leica R user that he would be the first person to ask what he thought of the Leica SL system. When I realized Leica Camera AG didn’t send him a Leica SL to test, I decided to send him my own Leica SL for some months. When the camera returned after four months, I was eager to learn what his take was on it. I asked if he would care to write an article, and here it is. Enjoy!

  3. SL with 280 Apo-Telyt-R and 2X Apo-Extender, Diablo foothills, California
  4. I found a Black-tailed Hare ("Jackrabbit") this morning in Yolo County California. Technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R, shoulder stock & monopod. All comments welcome.
  5. Yellow Waters Billabong, Kakadu National Park. Kakadu, in northern Australia, is a vast area of wetlands, wildlife, ancient rock art, rare plants, stunning rock formations and more… M9-P and 50mm Summilux (at f16)
  6. The California Foundation for Birds of Prey held an Open House yesterday, where several non-releasable birds were on display. Among them was Cleopatra, a young female Golden Eagle who was found near death by a Sacramento-area rancher. Cleopatra had contracted West Nile virus (thus the name) and though she is now fully capable of flight, she would not survive in the wild because the virus led to neurological damage which prevents her from seeing clearly at close distances. The first several months of captivity were terrifying for Cleopatra. She paniced at any nearby movement and it w
  7. I brought the new year in with a few photos of ducks: Canvasback Ring-necked Duck Bufflehead Mallard All photos: R8/DMR, 560mm f/6.8 Telyt, shoulder stock & monopod. All comments welcome.
  8. Friday morning I spent a few hours at the state fish hatchery at Nimbus Dam, a few minutes from home. The hatchery's water outflow often contains small fish (or portions of fish), a fact not lost on the local birds. A portion of the outflow is let into a settling pond where it eventually makes its way through percolation and direct flow to the American River, a few meters below the hatchery. Many of the local birds consider the settling pond to be a prime feeding area so among some species, the Common Goldeneye among them, 'turf' wars are fought over the best locations. Yesterday two pa
  9. Early this morning after several weeks' scouting the area: It's a Black-tailed Hare, also known as a Jackrabbit. technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R, shoulder stock & monopod. All comments welcome.
  10. The Oak Titmouse is a member of family Paridae which inludes Chickadees and Tits (I didn't name them, I'm just the messenger!). The Oak Titmouse is primarily a California resident, with a few populations in Baja California to the south and Oregon in the north. The Oak Titmouse, like all Paridae, are the definition of the word kinetic. As its name implies it's preferred habitat is oak woodlands, where they nest in a tree cavity; this morning I found a pair bringing breakfast to the kids: technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO + 2x APO-Extender-R. All comments welcome.
  11. Yesterday I visited the Sierra Nevada north of Truckee California; after about a mile along a washboarded gravel road I found a meadow filled to overflowing with wild mountain light and the promise of a drenching. At the meadow's edge a pair of Mountain Bluebirds was converting invertebrates into the next crop of blue bug-eaters: technical stuff: R8/DMR, 560mm f/6.8 Telyt-R, UET-R extension tube, shoulder stock and monopod. The second photo is cropped significantly. All comments welcome.
  12. I spent last Saturday at the California Raptor Center's spring Open House, where several of the non-releasable birds were on display for an up-close-and-personal look at them. The California Raptor Center in Davis is a licensed rescue and rehabilitation facility operated by the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine: Raptor Center Keep in mind because of captive living conditions these should be considered portraits of individuals and not necessarily representative of the species. Sadie is an imprinted Northern Saw-whet Owl. Athena is a Barn Owl who was rescued and brought back
