By jruffoloUPDATE: Price is negotiable, please send me your best offer if interested!
Up for sale is a new in box Leica TL (8854) in black, that I had purchased as a backup camera but never got around to using. The camera is in new condition, and has only been powered on to upgrade to the latest firmware v2.2 prior to me putting it up for sale. Included with the camera are all items originally shipped with the camera (Owner's manual, cables, battery, power supply with international plug assortment, strap, body cap, etc.), as well as all original packaging including the outer box. The protective film is still on the back of the camera as well. The horizontal lines that appear in some of the photos of the rear touch screen are only manufacturing marks on the protective sticker, and are not on the LCD themselves.
Standard UPS ground shipping within the continental United States is included with the price of the camera. The camera is located within the Chicagoland area - local pickup is welcome as well.

Thank you for your interest and best regards,
By LocalHero1953Leica TL2 black body, boxed and complete (straps, cable, instructions, charger, alternate power socket pins).
Additional two batteries (3 total), matching Visoflex EVF Type 020, steel lug pins (2 nr), black dummy pins (2 nr), lug pin removal tool.
Excellent condition, no significant marks, fully working with no problems. The outer box is a bit tatty at the closure point but intact.
I bought the TL2 a year ago, used, from the Leica Shop, Vienna, as a back up for my CL for travel. I would keep it but it has been replaced by a full-frame Sigma fp.
The TL2 sells for just under £1000 on ebay, and the Visoflex for another couple of hundred pounds. Including the Visoflex and batteries, this is a bargain!
Postage or courier charges will be added at cost, to be agreed before final sale.
By jaegerregardless of RF or DSLR, there is grease mark on LCD. I hate the smell days later if I forgot to wipe it. For the same reason I don't like people touch my cameras...
I use right eye to focus which should be better than lefty. I've tried to rotate my head clockwise to avoid touchy touchy but weird becoz I use both eyes.
I have a diopter + prescription on the M already but my nose is still touching the LCD. I'm thinking to add a larger eyecup that can push my face away a little which I haven't tired yet but would it work?
P.S. It's not an extreme case, my nose is normal to medium size. =P
By bcortonI wanted to see how well (or poorly) my TL2 could be coaxed into producing infrared or near-infrared photographs. So I started this informational topic to pass along some of what I found out.
I used infrared film only very occasionally during my predominantly film days, but there were times when it was just the ticket. One of my favorite B&W films was and still is Ilford's near-infrared SFX-200 processed in PMK Pyro, both for normal and occasionally for near-infrared photos (but that's another story).
It turns out that the TL2's sensor collects an impressive amount of infrared light. (Simple test: try viewing the business end of an IR TV remote through the camera. If you can see the IR diode--I assume it's a diode--light up when pressed, then you've got something to work with.) The TL2 shows the diode very well. So did the X2, but the X2 didn't fare nearly so well once I tried using it with IR filters. The exposure times were way too long.
Getting the TL2 converted to Infrared is an option, and one that will preserve exposure times we are more used to. Filters, as you all know, slow exposure times down. But if you only use IR occasionally, as I do, IR conversion of the camera isn't a desirable option. So I experimented with filters, and the results are as follows:
I used three filters on the TL2 in various types of scenes. The three filters were--in order of ascending visible light filtration--first, the B+W 092 (which Schneider says "...blocks visible light up to 650 nm, and at just below 700 nm it allows 50% to pass through .... From from 730nm to 2,000 nm the transmittance is very high at over 90%"). The second (perhaps the Goldilocks filter) was the HOYA R72 Infrared, which is designed to pass 95% of the light between 760nm and 860nm. The third, and darkest, filter was the B+W 093 which . . . well, I'll let them tell it: "blocks the entire visible light spectrum. It therefore appears black and in contrast to the B+W 092 infrared filter 695, it enables shots in pure infrared without the visible red. The transmittance does not exceed 1% until 800nm, but increases to 88% at 900nm."
I'll put results in subsequent posts.
