Manual for Elmar 50mm f2.8

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I recently purchased an Elmar 50mm f2.8 (newer version) encoded for the M9. It's a great lens, however I have no manual for it. Can someone direct me to a photcopy of the manual. I simply want to make sure I am locking/unlocking and collapsing the lens properly etc. It seem fine but . . . .

 

Thanks!

That's only the spec sheet not the manual! I came across that site earlier.

I don't remember having a manual for that lens when I owned it. I think Leica pretty much assumed if you bought it you know how to use it.

What don't you know how to do with the lens? I'm sure people here will offer advice that goes far beyond a manual if you ask them....

Hi,

I own the lens and I think I have a manual in the lens's box. If I find it today, I let you know and I will either copy it or take some digital shots and forward them to you.

Keep an eye on this post

Roofus,

I sent you a private e-mail, but in case you are in a hurry, here's the passage you are looking for from the lens's manual:

 

"EXTENDING AND COLLAPSING THE LENS

In order to enable the photographer to read the aperture scale from above, the white index point on the aperture ring must point to the red mark on the lens mount. In this position, the lens is fully extended and locked with a brief turn to the right.

ATTENTION: THE CAMERA IS ONLY READY FOR USE WHEN THE ELMAR HAS BEEN FULLY EXTENDED AND LOCKED.

In order to collapse the lens, carry out the inverse steps."

Perhaps I should add that to avoid trouble with M8/M9, it is recommanded to mount/unmount this lens fuly expanded.

Thank you atoumas and papimuzo. That is the information I was looking for!!!

 

Generally a manual for a simple lens is not required, however for they are useful for atypical lenses such as the Elmar 50, the WATE and the Summicron DR. That's why I asked!!!
