Some of us would like to see Leica revising and extending the Tri-Elmar concept - ...  very useful for hiking and travelling.  { WATE & MATE }

Whether the new Vario-Elmar-M will go into series production is not yet clear ( *... ).

With the introduction of system cameras with 'real-time image display' and electronic viewfinder, the proven Visoflex housing with M bayonet can be omitted if required.

 

 

The use of E. Leitz Visoflex components is a weight-, volume- and cost-optimized alternative:

5. - lens head E. Leitz Tele-Elmar 1:4 / 135mm (182g)

APO-Extender-M (155g) with extension ring (57g) = 212g )

Depending on the variant of the focus unit used, the total weight is 725g or 883g.
The OROLF is too heavy and bulky for me. (;-)

The intermediate spacer/ring with integrated tripod mount (No.16466(Y)/OUBIO) is useful for using the APO-Extender-M.

In the post 'What comes after...' I mentioned the complementary continuation of the new product range VISOFLEX-EVF and current 'Macro-Adapter-M' (14652).

Example of use: At the left front the 'model of a focus mount with M bayonet' as a replacement for one or two 'high value' Macro-Adapter-M (14652).

Thorsten,

 

I'm looking at the 'model of a focus mount with M bayonet' and am wondering how you interfaced the Leitz "Adapter A" 39mm to the Leitz 16464 (33mm x 0.7mm pitch)?  Did you modify a 16471 adapter with a 39mm female?

 

Best Regards,

 

Rick

Hello Rick,
 
correctly recognized. 

 
Here you will find detailed pictures (&) and notes on the application with the corresponding order designation.    (German language part of the forum.)

 
I think the focusing device16462 (optimized) #14-2 is more robust and therefore also gets an adapter to M39 / Adapter " A ".

 
Regards,

Just recently this brings me back to an older consideration that also looks very satisfying.

Design  (2012) digital CL camera with full format sensor... (;-) - The S. A7C camera shows that it works!

 

In this case, the Flicker-Free View with TO-M   -  an extension ring ~14,4mm and ring No. 16471... ( (;-) perfect)

 

Thorsten

      Two shots taken same day within a couple of minutes apart.
      One shot was taken with the SL2 single shot with SL16-35 and another with M10R with WATE. 
      Both shots taken at ISO100 / M mode / F9 / 1/20 sec on tripod.
      Can you tell which shot is taken with SL2 + SL16-35mm lens?

      What are the practical experiences with the Leica Tri-Elmar 4/28-35-50mm (E55) on a M10?
    • By onasj
      The Leica 28-35-50 Tri-Elmar (also known as the Medium Angle Tri-Elmar, or MATE) is a lens well-known for its complexity, and for the fact that it hasn't been made in ~14 years.  As one might expect for a lens that offers three of the most popular focal lengths, 28 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm, it's a highly versatile lens, especially for travel and street photography, or whenever carrying multiple lenses is a challenge.  
      The MATE is an engineering marvel— not only does it offer three focal lengths at constant f/4 aperture, but changing the focal length also mechanically changes the frame lines to match, AND if 6-bit encoded on recent (digital M) bodies, will also change the focal length displayed in Live View and the focal length recorded in each image's EXIF data to match, thanks to the body's ability to detect the frame line lever position.
      One of MATE's shortcomings—the maximum f/4 aperture—is mitigated by the high ISO performance of M10-generation bodies, especially the M10 Monochrom.
      I was fortunate to obtain one of these lenses recently (v2, E49), and while putting it through its paces, found that the MATE actually offers a "fourth lens"—a ~40 mm pseudo-macro (close-focus) option that is accessed by setting the focal length to the mid-point between 50 mm (the middle position of the zoom ring) and 28 mm (the clockwise-most position of the zoom ring when looking at the front of the lens).  The precise position is not critical, although a position close to the actual mid-point between 50 and 28 works best.  
      At this setting, you end up with a ~40 mm focal length lens that can close-focus to ~0.4 meters!  While not as macro-capable as a true macro lens such as the 90/4 Macro Elmar, one can capture subjects at a much greater size than otherwise possible with this lens, especially given that its minimum focusing distance is normally a full 1.0 meters.  Of course the rangefinder cannot be used to focus in this mode, but Live View with focus peaking works quite well for focusing in this mode.
      Attached is a matrix showing the same subject photographed with the MATE at all four focal lengths, always at the minimum focusing distance.  The entire frame of each image is shown (no cropping).  You can see that the "40 pseudo-macro" option has a much larger subject reproduction ratio than the three standard focal lengths.
      I've also found the 40 pseudo-macro option quite useful for taking portraits—more so than the canonical option of 50 mm with a 1-meter minimum focusing distance.  This option is optically quite good, approaching the (excellent) 50 mm focal length in terms of overall sharpness.
