Does anyone have experience using a visoflex 020 to calibrate a 50mm f1.1 7Artisans lens for the Leica M10 RF? Using the supplied focussing chart from 7Artisans as recommended seems more involved.
Currently, I can see a discrepancy between the focussing using the RF compared to the visoflex 020 - no calibration has been undertaken to-date.
Appreciate any advice or experiences e.g. do you recommend using the 7artisans chart as the method of choice ?
Hi, I miss the Leica experience, so I'm about to click Purchase on a Q-P.. Because of my crappy eyesight, I will want to Lock In the Single Focus Point. I have read that this is Not Possible and that at times the Single Focus point will drift away from the Central position.. Is this true? If So, is there any way I can Lock the Single Focus Point in the Center Position? How about Multi Point Focus, does that stay Central & Permanent? - I appreciate these are basic questions, but very important bearing in mind my poor eyesight.. Tx in advance... L
I know that nearly everyone on this forum is more knowledgeable about Leica cameras than myself. I have a Q2 on order.
Several reviewers have reported high ISO/low light issues with the new sensor. Do people think that these problems can be be rectified, or at least improved, in a future firmware update? Or is the camera stuck with them?
Or do the issues not really exist?
Hello, I want to share with you my last experience with the SL.
It was the first studio session on location I had, mixing strobes and ambient light, since I purchased the SL. During this session I have had a really hard times trying to focus on some faces during this group & portrait session yesterday!
I was in a white walls area and the ambient light was rather normal (sunny day). I was shooting with a moderate natural and clear back-light coming from 2 windows. I used 2 strobes on the persons. Most of the time, I was more or less able to focus easily, but on one face it was almost impossible, wherever I set the focus point on the sensor, to focus! I had to add a side continuous light to be able to focus. And even so it was not obvious to achieve it right all the time.😳
To be honest, I am a little disappointed by the "lack of power" of the AF response. Even my previous DSLR (Nikon D800 & Pentax K1....) were better in low or contrasted lights than the SL. 🤔
On a more positive side the image quality (especially skin tons) is far better than everything I had in hands before. 🤩
Has anyone gone through such difficulties and is there a better camera setting to insure better results? Many thanks in advance for your educated advice. 😁
Hi All SL-users!
I have had my SL for some months and used mostly M-R lenses with the adapers and the 24-90 Zoom which covers most situations. The system is heavy, but once you get used to it, -you start wondering why not use lenses of your 645 cameras:)? I have the Contax 645 lenses and wonder if anyone has found suitable adapter to use these on the SL - even if the AF and some other functions might be lost? Some time back there were still companies which made tailor-made adapters, but I have learned that we are maybe past those times?;) However, there are individuals who are keen to solve problems and I remember someone making an AF-unit of Nikon's 16A-teleconverter, which was not that difficult after all... Even the Photokina exhibition might have revealed something on this front?
So, -please, share any of your experience and of this topic? if there are any:)?
