Can any of the old Leica screw mount lenses be adapted to fit on the CL

No problem. Use a suitable screw mount to M-mount adapter, plus M-to-L adapter.

Not too sharp, that old Hektor 135, mainly due to chromatic aberration. It does fine on the Monochrom, though and is superb as an IR lens on the M8.

With an old boy: Summicron 5 cm f 2. from 1957...

This one you can retract without fears, but you don't gain much space.

Thanks. Show us some results

Just for you Jaap 

because I couldn't go outdoor given some health pb and in a hurry just 5 shots at f5.6 around me.

No art, no special, just to see how it works...

HTH. Best.

 

BTW, used Capture 1 v.10 DNG neutral, no adjustements at all

I thought C1 does not support the CL yet. Would you mind to confirm?

They may not support it with their own profile, but I have been using C1 since I got my CL last December.  Both V10 and V11.  The generic Leica DNG profile works fine.

Hi LCT,

 

yes it is C1 v:10.2  The CL is not recognized as such but the Exif reads and shows Leica CL There is no special ICC profile available but you can use the generic DNG or any ICC you have ("show All" ICC profiles)

OK thanks but i can get the same when importing tiff files with my old C1 v8. Would you mind to confirm that the CL's DNG files can be developed directly though the current C1 version? Please forgive my question is the answer feels obvious to you.

I'm not sure that I understand what you mind in your word "developed" . You can play with any adjustments in C1 and when satisfied you can use the OUTPUT directly from C1 and get the file into the format you choose in the Output parameters.

Is that you ask? In fact the workflow is not different than any C1 version.

[......................]   so you can open directly your CL's DNG files into C1 right? [..............]

 

That is exactly what you can do

 

Happy workflow!

What budget friendly vintage lenses would the group recommend to mount on the CL?  Thought there might be other people like me that would like to experiment

An early Kinoptik f2 Erax (LTM modified) on the CL - a recent test:
