By WanLeviaHi to all Leica lovers,
I'm new to the forum, at least as registered user, and I want to thank you all for all your invisible support you gave me when searching for precious info about Leica. Probably the best resource online on this specific and lovable world.
I'm interested to test some 35mm prime lenses (no Leica) for my digital M.
I've heard about great results with:
Voigtlander 35mm f2.5 Color Skopar Zeiss Biogon C 35mm f2.8 Zeiss Biogon C 35mm f2.0 (someone online affirming it is not sharp as the Zeiss 2.8) I know this is probably an old challenge but I just wanted to follow up it on 2020 , and I'm interested to a new lens.
Anyone here who want to share its opinion both on digital or analogical is very very welcome.
Furthermore....is it worth the Zeiss price gap (currently double the price for new)?
Thanks a lot
By theweijianI was listening to an interview between Dr Andreas Kaufmann and Ralph Gibson, and I was intrigued by this statement by Ralph Gibson:
I am curious if any of you have found that to be the case - that 75mm is "normal" for digital photography.

By Al BrownHave searched for a while for the ultimate pouch (neoprene, not leather) for my Leica M lenses. Finally found one for the "average" Leica/Zeiss/Hexanon lens. This bag can also be hooked to the belt via the sewn loop, having enough room for a finger to reach for the lens. I cut off the adjacent carabiner as it was useless. Now I can stack two lenses on top of each other (I have 4) in my ONA bag. I am not naming any brands, I am not associated with anyone, just informing anyone that was after such product that this company is in Munich, Germany and on amazon.de. They have even smaller (XXS) bags but they are too tiny for Leica lenses. The proper size they offer for the pouch IMHO was XS (7cm x 8cm). The bags are not the icons of design, nor very beautiful, but they do get the job done.
PLEASE SHARE YOUR LEICA LENS POUCH EXPERIENCE(S).

By nefariousHopefully nobody minds me asking an ignorant question...
I have an LTM Elmar 50mm f/2.8 and, reading the Ken Rockwell review, he recommends a Yellow #022 39mm filter for b&w photography with that lens. However, what I am really unsure about is how the filters fit to my lens and, if I am not to buy an authentic Leitz/Leica filter, what I need to look for on eBay, etc. I don't see any thread inside the collapsible lens so I am guessing that the filters either fit over the lens like the lens cap or somehow grip onto the inside of the lens.
Grateful for any insights plus suggestions re where I can get them!
By RoriboI have bought my first Leica T. It is nu first endeavour in the Leica system. It was a demo model in mint condition with alle accessoires and box. Just not a lens.
I am wondering how to best the Leica experience for the least amount of money.
So I have found a few options from cheap to more expensive:
1. Adapt my existing Nikon D glass with a lens adapter
2. Buy a 50mm Summicron F2 lens and an adapter.
3. Buy a new Sigma 45mm f2.8
4. Buy a new Leica 18mm f/2.8
If money was no object I'd would have liked the 23mm f/2. Alas that is not the case. So any advice would be much apreciated, about the above options and getting the best Leica colour and pop experience.
