elmarit 24 mm

Recommended Posts

Hola a todos. Soy nuevo en el foro

 

Tengo una M6TTL y un Elmarit 24mm con un visor externo. La composición con este lente es muy difícil porque la M6TTL es un par de milímetros más alta que otras Leica M analógicas (M2,M3,M4,M5,M6) por lo que el visor externo no es muy preciso.

 

Me encanta el lente pero quisiera buscar una Leica M que me de menos problemas

 

Quisiera conocer si alguien tiene experiencia con alguna de estas cámaras y un Elmarit 24mm.  Me interesa conocer si han tenido problemas de composición

 

saludos desde Ecuador, América del sur

Hello everyone. I'm new in the forum
 
 
I have an M6TTL and an elmarit 24mm with external viewer.
 
Composition With this camera is very difficult because the M6TTL is a couple of millimeters higher than other analog Leica M (M2, M3, M4, M5, M6) so the external viewer is not very accurate.
 
I love the lens but I would like to find another Leica that has fewer problems
 
I would like to know if anyone has experience with these cameras and the Elmarit 24mm. I'm interested to know if they have had problems of composition
 
 
Greetings from Ecuador, South America

Hi Armando,

 

these few millimeters do not affect the accuracy of the finder! The optical axis of the finder and of the lens must be parallel, than there is no difference. 4mm more ore less of your photographic subject in a distance of some meters - what does it mean? Nothing! Only the so called parallaxe in close distances is growing a little bit.

Thanks for the answers. Here, two pictures made at less than 1m of distance. 

 

I did not want to cut my children heads!!

Nice Guys ;-))

 

Does your finder not have a dottet line in the upper part of the viewing area? This is a hint, which parts of the picture will fall off when you are in the near focus range.

 

In former times everything was better ;-)))): look at this old vario finder, which has a lever underneath the eyepiece (it stands between infinity and 4m). With this lever you could tilt the finder in order to get the right picture depending on the distance of your subject. But: can you imagine, how often people did forget to adjust this lever? Or forgot it willingly because by time they got the experience to know how much will fall off in closer distances. That is my advice to you too: get experienced and dont "believe" your finder in every aspect.

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got my m2 off ebay and had a look through the viewfinder only to see 2 main very noticeable spots. I attached a picture and the one on the lower left looks much dimmer and looks like a dot and a hair almost? It's kind of light greyish and I think it's a particle or dust but I'm not quite sure. However, in the middle the speck seems much darker (basically black) and more prominent. Could this be separation or is it another speckle of dust (imo it doesn't seem like one). If this has happened to you or you know what it is, any input on how to fix or your thoughts would would be greatly appreciated! 
      Also the shutter curtain on the front seems a little pushed forward and I can see the whole seam on it, is that normal? The curtain works 100% fine but I'm not sure if Im supposed to see the whole seam and overlap of the two curtains. On the back it stays slightly open by 1mm or so (didn't include a pic sorry)... should it cause a light leak? The camera was also recently CLA'd.
      Lastly, the viewfinder has some "gold specks" which I think is separation, but I hope i'm wrong.  
      Please help if you can clarify, recommend a fix, or give any thoughts on ^^. Overall the camera seems amazing and none of the things I mentioned has really bothered me, but if I can learn more about them then it would be great.
      Thanks in advance, 
      Ashley

      Hello
      the help of experts is necessary !
      I want to buy  the Leica X type 113 camera , but original electronic Leica viewfinders are really  expensive.
      Also it is impossible to use analogs from Olympus like for X1 and X2 models.
      Anyone knows  is it possible to use on this camera some kind of old types of optical  viewfinders for example the 36 mm from Voigtlander or Leica?
      Waiting for answers .

      I'm planning to get a 28mm Summicron for my M-A. Of course the camera's viewfinder has frame lines for 28, but the lines are a little difficult to see at times if the hood is being used. 
      I'm thinking of adding a brightline finder for quick shooting. The older 28mm Leica finders are difficult to find in good shape. The Zeiss 25 28 finders are optically great, but can be fragile.
      So the other option I'm considering is the current Leica 21mm Brightline finder with the brass housing. And then to use the frame lines in the finder meant for use on the M8. Given the 1.33 crop factor, my understanding is that these lines should correspond to a 28mm on a full frame camera.
      Any experiences or thoughts?

      I just wanted to verify if focus shift is a design flaw on 24mm Lux or something it can be fixed by adjustment.
      Since this lens has forgiving depth of field so the focus shift will only noticeable at the following conditions....
      1) at close subjects that's less than 1.5 meters, please set yours at 0.7 meter on the barrel to test.  (don't push all the way, some lenses might go below 0.7m that your viewfinder doesn't)
      2) provided your lens and camera are perfectly calibrated, which supposed to be no issue wide open at f/1.4 at any range.   The focus shift will happen started from half click increment.  Greater than f/2.8 will stop seeing focus shift just simply becoz this lens has very wide DOF.
      I use this lens for close subject intensively so please don't tell me how to use it or how you use it -- thank you in advance.  I start noticing all my pictures are out of focus between 0.7 to 2m when aperture is set to f/2 plus or minus half stop.  So I did a test at home to confirm my copy does have focus shift between f/1.8, f/2 and f/2.4 (I include half click).  My lens @f/1.4 is perfect at any range, every click closing (not step) will result in two inches back focus,  @f/2 is worst at about 5 inches total.  Beyond that range like f/2.8 is fine, it starts to recover a wide range of DOF - some called it zone focusing. 
      If it's not a design flaw, then I need to speak to a Leica technician who is going to fix this lens.  Thank you very much.
