I am also a very happy user of the Leica M8. Foto Nivo Schweitzer in Amsterdam has given a very good service. I think that it is a very good idea to organzize a meetingpoint for Leica users in Holland. Perhaps can Transcontinenta organize it?

I use my Leica cameras for theatre photography ( Remmelt van Veelen: photography; color / Cibachrome landscapes and travelphotography)

I do my landscape photography with the Pentax 67.

We could probably do it ourselves. I honestly have no idea how many of us would like to chat about the m8 in real life whilst having a beer instead of sitting behind a computer.

Ik heb mijn M8 via Autofocus, nu 3 weken geleden, en heb mijn D200 niet meer aangeraakt! (komt wel weer hoor). Fotografeer nu alles weer met een 40 mm Voigtlander.

Hallo,

 

Ik ben een tevreden Tilburgse M8-gebruiker. Kocht de mijne bij Talens in Haarlem, begin maart. Overigens wacht ik wel al 10 weken op mijn lenzen. Gebruik zolang de 15 mm Voigtlaender.

 

met groet,

Harry

Landgenoten !

 

Bought my M8 chrome from Kamera-Express in March.

Started with one lens: Zeiss Biogon T* 2.0/35mm ZM.

Then soon added a Summicron 2.0/28mm ASPH and an APO-Summicron 2.0/75mm ASPH. And since 2 weeks a Summilux 1.4/50mm ASPH.

Leica lenses bougth from LEICAbyMEISTER and LEICA Berlin.

Mainly combining shooting and walking in Amsterdam.

Thank you Jaap,

 

I'm waiting for the 28mm(2,8 non-asph), the 50 and 90. They are being coded in Solms or in China, i begin to believe. i just started using a leica m4-p 2 years ago. So i'm relatively new to RF camera's and feel very lucky to use an M8.

You can count me in as customer from Minderman as well. I appreciated how I could be convinced not to sell my old lenses but use them in stead. I have a 90 mm Tele-Elmarit, which is not as bad as some people claim, and a 3rd generation 35 mm Summicron that apparently can not be coded by Solms. Any idea's to resolve this?

 

Thanks & best regards, Maarten Zuiderduin

Maarten, you can easily handcode your lenses with a black marker. Here's a webpage telling you how. Leica M8 Lens Codes

Ik heb dat geprobeerd met 15CV en 35 S'cron pre-asph maar hij (of is het een zij?) herkent het nog niet. Heb het geprobeerd met de sjabloon (pdf-file) op die webpage.

Die sjabloon klopt niet helemaal. Je kunt beter de 6 'oogjes' van de sensor in de bajonet markeren op de buitenkant van je bajonet en dan met de lens erop op de rand van de lens aangeven waar de zwarte streepjes moeten komen.

Succes,

 

Hans

We kunnen natuurlijk een keer bij elkaar komen om de ontbrekende streepjes aan te

brengen....

Je hebt naar verhouding veel Nederlanders op dit forum gevonden. Misschien moeten wij Andreas om een regionaal forum vragen, Hans:D;)
