By Jk1002So I recently bought preowned SL with the thought in mind that I want to built up lenses first over the next few years and then hop over to a current SL model probably SL3.
I got plenty of M glas and will buy the Leica 24-90 sometime next year when I am back home in Germany.
In the meantime, I am able to get the TL 18-56 at around 1100$ preowned alternatively Sigma 24-70 is in same range.
I know with the crop in pixels the TL lens on the SL is a bit of a waste but am sensing that the TL lenses on Sl2 kinda megapixels are an epic low weight option.
What to do? I know there are few threads on Sl18-56 but it doesnt seem that it ever really caught much interest.
Sigma users seem happy but if I get a 24–90 anyhow does this make sense?
Since the wide angles are on the map to appear do we think Leica would do a lower weight 24-70 themselves? Or is this to close to the 24-90?
By email@example.comHey all, was curious about how the technical aspects of the Zeiss Biogon lenses ( 25mm or 28mm ) would match up with the CL + adapter. Im between either of those or the TL 23mm Summicron. Main use cases being travel and street photography.
The image render from the Zeiss seems almost better than the 23mm but worried that it wont perform as well on the CL vs a dedicated lens.
Has anyone used both on a CL or T?
Thanks in advance.
By Per P.I am selling my RRS L-plate for the Leica SL 601 due to lack of use. This is a modular plate in two parts, so you can use the baseplate on its own or attach the L-component to create a robust and tailormade L-plate. Everybody knows the quality of RRS and this plate is no exception. It has marks of use around the screw that connects the two parts but otherwise only the lightest marks of use. It comes with a magnetic allen-key that attaches underneath the baseplate and will be shipped in the original small box.
Price from new is €175. My price is €55 plus shipping from Germany (around €15 within EU countries incl. UK). If you want to use PayPal I will need to add €3 to cover the costs.
By nicci78After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ?
A little history :
- 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
- 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
- 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
- 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens
Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all !
We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7.
Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS.
No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8.
No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm.
These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses.
So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But no new lens = death of the system.
Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade.
So what do you think about this situation ?
