Leica T with manual lens

Recommended Posts

Just got my 7Artisans 55m 1.4 L mount lens today. It's a nice looking chunky bit of kit, and arrived just in time for my holiday today so hopefully I will get some use out of it. 

I wondered, is there a way with manual lenses of getting the T to zoom in to check focus? I thought I'd seen it somewhere but can't seem to find out how to do it?

I'll try and do a review of the lens when I've had some experience with it.

TIA

Tried another shot, my eyes were directly into the sun and focusing with the screen was pretty tough!

I've got the Visoflex on order 🙂

Happy to help. Make sure Focus Aid is set to On. The left dial will then become the magnification wheel. First turn, 3X. Second, 6X.

Doesn’t seem to work for me. My lens is L mount manual, maybe it only works with the Leica M adapter?

I’ve tried all the different shooting modes with focus assist on and off. Firmware version 1.9

🙁

I am using Nikkor lenses via an adapter and magnification does work. It is a little tricky to set it up right, but it does work! :)

After each firmware, I always take much time to set it up and I always forget how to do it! lol

The camera needs to be switched to aperture priority mode. Spin the left wheel. The symbols for setting the wheel function will appear on the screen. Factory setting is ISO. Click on it and select the focus mode item. After that, when shooting, you can turn the left wheel. Works with any adapters.

Brilliant! I should have realised that with Leica’s touchscreen interface touching the button was the way to change it doh!

Thanks to everyone for your help. Much appreciated ❤️
