I am a fairly new member here and have enjoyed back and forth, the information freely given, and the photographs...wonderful resource and entertainment.

 

Vorsatzlinse 1,2, and 3 have come my way (Elpro, Elpik, and Elpet). They are mentioned a few times in various threads here but only passingly. I would like to know more about their application...any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum !!!

 

In this forum - Wiki area - you can find some infos HERE : http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-wiki.en/index.php/ELCAT

 

They basically are a set of close focus lenses made to fit onto the standard 50mm lens of the early Leicas (the famous Elmar 5 cm f 3,5) : no much to add.. the trio provides 3 different ranges of focusing, and the focus has to be set with "mechanical" aids to measure the distance, having not any way to "couple" to the Leica rangefinder (and, by the way, they were made BEFORE the Leicas with rangefinder were made); after the intro of rangefinder coupled Leicas, Leitz made more "smart" (and complex)accessories for close focusing (NOOKY and similar)

Mr. Bertolloti

That is the information I needed...distances for use.

 

Mr. Braconi

It is those pictures of the lens that assured my purchase.

... So you just need to find a BEHOO

... neither rare nor costly (example : leitz BEHOO | eBay).

It can seem a rough device, but as all Leitz accessories is far from being trivially made...

      habe ein Paar Elpro in einer Auktion erworben, die leider auf o.g. Linse nicht passen. Wurden als passend angeboten, sind aber zu klein.
      ELPRO VIa+b haben einen zu kleinen Filterdurchmesser zum anschrauben, werde sie wohl verkaufen.
      Welches ELPRO passt wirklich?
      Danke für einen Tip.

      Hallo,
       
      ich würde mir gerne noch eine achromatische Nahlinse für die V-Lux 2 zulegen.
      Hat jemand hiermit schon Erfahrungen sammeln können?
       
      Für die V-Lux 1 bzw. FZ 50 wurde häufig die Nahlinse Elpro 3 empfohlen. Gilt diese Empfehlung auch für die V-Lux 2?
       
      Danke für Eure Rückmeldungen!

      Has anyone ever used a Leica Elpro 2 with a D-Lux 4?
      I have an adapter tube, with 52mm. If I use a 52-55 stepup ring, this should be a winning combo, no?
      Since my other camera is a Digilux 2 and its proprietary Elpro-D is beyond the reqch of my wallet, I was looking into buyin one of the Elpro filters for my D-Lux 4>
      Does anyone have the specifications for the Elpro 1,2,3 and 4? I'm not quite sure which one I should get (it would be for macro work on flowers).
       
      Thanks for your input!
