D2 / LC1 troublesome scroll-wheel

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)



I am interested if anybody else has experienced the problem, that the scroll wheel of the D2 or LC1 (in my case) behaves unpredictable / jumpy. When you are zoomed into images in the Play-Mode it is impossible to tell if the camera will zoom in or out, no matter how much you turn the wheel, or in which direction.


I would be also happy to hear what could cause such a problem - dirt, broken microswitch, ...


Thanks a lot for your experiences.

I have a hard time predicting whether it will zoom in or out. However, I think the fault lies entirely with me for being unable to remember which does which. I can see no obvious causality between CW/CCW rotation and zooming in and out.

If you turn the wheel with just your thumb it sticks. If you turn it with finger and thumb it's ok yes ..?


I managed to dismantle mine and lubricate it with silicon oil. Works better than ever now.


It's a tricky repair though, only attempt if you're confident else send to Leica .

One of my D2s had that problem. It drove me a little (more) nuts with aggravation. I put off repairs until the original sensor failed. Leica made the whole camera new again at NO cost. Great company.

      Hallo Freunde,
      was macht ein Hobby-Fotograf am Sonntagmorgen?
      Er spielt mit seinem liebsten Spielzeug Indoor 
      Dies ist meine Digilux 2, die ich sträflichst vernachlässige !
      Hab schon ein schlechtes Gewissen.
      Anbei eine Spielerei aus der Digilux 2   die immer noch
      perfekte Bilder abliefert  (mit dem 2. Sensor) .
      Schönes Wochenende Euch allen

      Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 141st Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with more than 1,900 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme.  Also, thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us!  
       The 142nd Barnack's Monthly theme for July 2020 is:
      This month's theme is any picture that includes a wheel or the word "wheel" on its own or as part of another word.  It could be a spinning wheel, a stationary wheel, a wagon wheel, a blue wheel, a spoked wheel, a wheelhouse, a ship's wheel, a pulley, a castor, a tractor wheel, a steering wheel, a flywheel, a flying wheel, aircraft undercarriage, train wheels, trainer wheels, soapbox wheels, go-kart wheels, a Catherine wheel, a bicycle wheel, a tricycle wheel, a tandem wheel, a random wheel, tank track wheels, a block and tackle pulley, steel wheels, racing wheels, a mill wheel, a wooden wheel, a Tibetan prayer wheel, Wheeler's Furniture sign, a pinwheel, pram wheels, Wheel of Fortune, The Arkwright's Wheel pub - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free!  
      It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's just helpful.
      The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it!

      Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post.

      Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme.
      Note: Moderator Pop has very kindly assembled links to all of the past Barnack's Monthly threads as a single archive that can be found here: Barnack's Monthly Index.  Thank you, Pop!   Pete.

      Just received the new 2X Tele Converter DMW-STC20 for the Panasonic Lumix S PRO Leica 70-200 F4 O.I.S. Sample image below from my SL taken at 40m 
      Panasonic 2x converter   (   400 mm  - Leica - Spot - Aperture priority - ISO 1600 - ¹⁄₅₀₀ sec at ƒ - 8.0 - 0 EV -   )  -1230695.jpg
      Very happy the results so far although maximum aperture is down at f/8.0 - OK for sunny days. Total cost for both items less than 50% of the Leica 90-280 f/2.8-f/4.
      The DMW-STC20 with the Leica 280mm might be fun!

      Ist zwar keine Vollblut-Leica.
      Aber für den bevorstehenden Schnorchel- und Strand-Urlaub musste was wasserdichtes und robustes her.
      Um dann hier Bilder herzuzeigen, sollte sie unbedingt ein Leica Objektiv haben. Darum das ältere Modell Lumix DMC FT5. Baujahr 2014.
      Objektiv Leica DC Vario-Elmar 3,3-5,9/28-128mm mit 4,6-fach opt. Zoom
      Ist nur zufällig in Camouflage. So merkt man die Gebrauchsspuren nicht so schnell.
      War dafür ein nettes Bundle aus einer Kleinanzeige mit 2tem Akku und 2 64GB Speicherkarten.
      Falls jemand sowas überlegt.
      Erste Eindrücke.
      Die Kamera ist viel kleiner und leichter als gedacht, passt locker in eine Hemdtasche.
      In 1 Sekunde nach dem einschalten bereit.
      Die Menüführung ist nicht überladen. Trotzdem braucht man etwas Übung und Fingerspitzengefühl um die Tasten zu bedienen.
      Es gibt nur eine Handvoll Motivprogramme plus eine Manuelle Funktion.
      Mit der Bildqualität bin ich sehr zufrieden. Zoomen sollte man allerdings tunlichst vermeiden.
      Videoqualität ist auch recht gut (wahlweise AVCHD oder MP4). Durch das geringe Gewicht wackelt man allerdings. Also wo hinstellen oder ein kleines Stativ nehmen.
      Stereomikro. Videolicht.
      GPS ist an Board. Noch nicht getestet, soll laut anderer Tests bis auf 10 Meter genau passen. Höherer Stromverbrauch, eh klar!
      Via W-LAN und Panasonic Image App lässt sie sich fernsteuern und Bilder übertragen.
      Makrofunktion tadellos, Nahbereich bis ca. 4cm.
      Fallhöhe bis zu 2 Meter sollen ihr angeblich nichts antun, Tauchtiefe bis 13m.
