Pete, credit for that point goes to Mr. Karbe and Leica.

Out of curiosity, I upsampled the attached Pipit photo to 150%, and then cropped it at 100%, with only slight sharpening and no noise reduction.  Not a museum piece, of course, but still eminently viewable.

 . . . and then there are times one needs cropping and a teleconverter . . . 

SL2/280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R/APO-Extender-R 2X . . . the SL2's Continuous Manual Focus will never let you down! 😎

Ok, so maybe I didn't need the TC on this one . . . but I doubt the critter would have done another lap while I removed it . . . 🤪

Great Egret . . . 

Impressive skills to capture a shot like this on a manual focus tele lens!

100 mm Macro Elmarit-R

Just got this lens, so far ... loving it! Shot with a digital camera, next I will try it with my Leica R9 film camera.

Last evening, I had the time to pull out my Leitz Macro-Elmar-R 100mm f/4 and Focusing Bellows-R set to test them on the Hasselblad 907x. 

First hurdle was testing for compatibility with the Fotodiox Pro Leica R to Hasselblad X mount adapter, which has a built-in Arca-Swiss tripod foot. Happily, the foot just clears the back of the bellows unit (about .2mm to spare!) so the combination is usable. 


Now I have to go off and make some photos with it... :D

Hi Ramarren, thanks for information on using your Leica Macro-Elmar-R 100mm f/4.

I shot this image using the Fotodiox dlx stretch E-mount adapter onto my Sony a7r4, 35mm camera.

While the Leica 100mm f/2.8 macro is only a 1:2 (0.5x) lens, the Fotodiox "dlx" adapter has a helicoid that allows up to an additional ~ 35mm of extension.

So this combination, "on the fly", allows the magnification to increase from 0.5x mag, up to a 0.85x mag. I also have the Leica Bellows-R and it is an excellent bit of kit!!!

Cheers
