By paulgreenfieldJust 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!

By Aivarhi all!
I have 35 and 75, both lux. but some times I would like to get picture quality as at my 35 lux. 75 bit different. looking at 90/2.8, 90/2, 90/2AA... I shoot landscapes, portraits. not sure but maybe 180/2.8 or 180/2.8 APO as I also wanted something longer than short tele. use these at typ 240 and Sony a7II. any ideas?
By nikonosguyI have an r5... but all this talk about cams is confusing....
all my lenses, except my 50 cron are 3 cam... I don't feel the need for an r8 or r9, does single cam,2 cam, or 3 cam or any other variation make any difference?
current lenses: 24 elmarit,50 cron, 90 elmarit, 180 elmarit
I am still evaluating if a SL is a good investment for my big collection of old R lenses.
With the objects I photograph I use mainly the Macro and light Tele lenses: 60mm, 100mm, 135mm, 180mm
I have almost not been using my all time favorite lens the 100mm/2.8 Apo Macro since 10 years (digital age) which I feel is a very big loss.
The SL will be a fine investment if I can finally use this lens again for "daily work".
So I am not interested to know how the latest AF equipment works (which I find too expensive and much too bulky for most work or for fun, probably because I prefer fixed length lenses).
I am looking for people with experience (and maybe fun) to use the 90's R lenses (that not so long ago were regarded as top).
I have invested much more into the R system than in M lenses, and I assume there must be many more people with the same problem.
So I am looking for experiences with R-lenses with the SL, mainly for Macro use and for light Tele. If you can share your fotos even better.
Imagine that you have a complete R collection, but little money to buy new equipment - so is the Leica SL worth the enormous price to reactivate the R system ?
The 60, 100, 135 and 180 were the bread and butter lenses. Can they be that again with the Leica SL ?
By the way, the Leica M 240 is definitely not worth the trouble (to put these R lenses in front of it) even if officially supported.
Thanks for any responses.
I think my cherished R3 may have a shutter fault. I fitted new batteries recently intending to use the camera and gave it a check over.
I haven't checked it with a film but, it appears that the shutter isn't firing correctly at 1/500 or 1/1000 speeds - all other speeds seem fine but at those top speeds the shutter fires, but you can't see any light through the shutter as you trip it.
It's an odd one and not a fault I've ever seen before - just wondering if any one else has experienced this or if anyone knows if the R3 shutter can be fixed?
I will contact some repairers also, and - just for certainty - run a film through it.
I've had this camera since new, it was a present and has sentimental value as well as being a great SLR body, so I want to save it!
