Lens Profile setting for older lenses

Recommended Posts

Just acquired this Tele-Elmarit 90mm in decent condition. I believe it's a version 2; if so what ID number should I set in the lens profile for the CL?  I'm using it with a Novoflex adaptor.

This lens is part number 11800, and by the serial number, was made in 1981. The CL has a specific lens profile for it: "90mm f/2.8 11800".

You can find the part numbers for lenses and such on the Leica Wiki pages: http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-wiki.en/index.php/M_Lenses_x_Focal_Length

ramarren beat me to it, do you need to 6 bit code it or has your m-l adaptor not got the reader like the original one?

Hi John, the Novoflex doesn't recognise the lens.   I guess the Leica one does but I can't really justify the difference of £80 vs £300 for a lens that I probably won't use that often.  Here's a couple 'first pics' taken this morning, adjusted using Affinity Photo.
