Leica T/TL/TL2 - the Image thread

Recommended Posts

Amazing - at the Singapore F1 race weekend, even in the paddock where millionaires stroll past you by the dozen and a double world champion can be standing right next to you, the Leica T is eye catching enough to be worth ignoring Fernando Alonso!

 

Woah! Is that a Leica T? by Aural Asia, on Flickr

Yvan de Meeus -

 

Welcome to the Forum. Based on your first post - an unusual and fine "selfie" I look forward to seeing many more of your images. However, in the future I most strongly urge you to wait until you get to your computer to post images -- By posting them via tapatalk you post a link to your photo. Please be aware that many of us will not take the trouble to click through a link to an image, so many of us will not have the benefit of seeing images posted as links rather than images posted directly here.

Curious - in Tapatalk it showed up as a full image the first time and only a link this time. Does Tapatalk reverse the issue with images posted directly to the forum?

Jar -

 

I'm glad to see that after being here nearly six years you're beginning to post. In the future I most strongly urge you to, at the very least, place one or two images directly on the Forum along with your links to other images to lure us into clicking through. Many of us will not click through without incentive to do so - Especially with so many links. Additionally, two of the links didn't work for me.

Not wanting to test people's patience, here is an image with the 50 Summilux ASPH & M converter for comparison.

 

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I cannot get the zoom to focus as crisply or as accurately as I can with manual M lenses.

 

Cheers

John

 

PS - these candle holders are all pretty uniformly white on the outside and varying colours on the inside - when lit, it looks like the reverse - oddly fascinating.

      After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ? 
       
      A little history :
      - 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
      - 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
      - 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
      - 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens  
      Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all ! 
      We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7. 
       
      Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
      None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS. 
      No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8. 
      No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm. 
      These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses. 
       
      So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses  ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But  no new lens = death of the system. 
      Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade. 
       
      So what do you think about this situation ?

      Do L-Mount lens from Sigma or Panasonic work with the original T (typ 701) ?

      I use the camera as a backup to my CL with the variety of TL lenses or adapted lenses. I might be looking into a Panasonic for high res-images. The Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 is a favored lens I'm looking at, but there are others I might look at.

      Don‘t know how others fell. But just saw that there is a new Firmware for the CL but nothing for the TL2 and this since a while. Communications turn primarily around CL. Is the T-series dead?

      Mike Johnston at TheOnlinePhotographer blog has been musing about the perfect 'simple' digital camera again, and I can't help thinking that a Leica T(L/2) fits his description perfectly - if only he (and his readers) knew it.
      He acknowledges that Leica is the only camera company embracing photographic simplicity, but the spectre of Leica prices keeps coming back - both in the blog posts and the comments - and the only cameras they seem to acknowledge are the M-series.
      To me, the menu system in the Leica T is the most intuitive and minimal interface that's possible in an advanced digital camera - especially the way that each user can choose their own subset of visible menu items: I have only 4 items in that menu, and regularly only use one of them (the metering type).
      Nowadays the T can be bought for less than a Fuji XE3. You can even pair it with an adapter for non-Leica manual lenses (ie: Olympus OM). Couldn't be simpler or cheaper.
      Incidentally, one of the points being missed in a lot of the comments on TOP's site is the scenario where the user changes a setting on a camera unintentionally. A lot of the commenters say it's easy to just ignore menus and settings they don't understand. But this was one of the problems I persistently had with my X100 - I'd pick it up after a long hiatus and somehow an exposure or other setting had been inadvertently changed, and it would first take me a while to notice, and then usually a long time to fix (hunting through tens of menus). And I'm an app developer, so used to device complexity.
      The T has solved all those problems perfectly.
