Totally confused by TL60mm Macro AF.

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I'm seriously considering this lens, could some kind owner do what 'Leica' themselves ought to have done and explain in detail what the user has to do to get this thing to AF and MF. I may be wrong but it would appear that the AF is in two halves, is this done manually or automatically. Does anything have to be set in the menus, etc, etc.

Or if there is and instruction somewhere, a link would be nice.

Thank you in anticipation.

I'm using the 60macro on my T as well as the TL2. In both cases I didn't noticed a "splitting" from the AF. I switch in camera menu between manual focus and auto-focus  - that's all.

Are there many changes between the original and the new instruction book?

I had this happen to me as well.  After several shots at very close range, I was unable to obtain distance focus - this was remedied by simply turning the manual focus ring and then the lens focused normally. I had NOT touched the focus limit on/off control at all.

So I guess my explanation here wasn't up to the task?😉

Actually, except for typing "slowly" twice - where "quickly" was intended in the first instance, your explanation was right on - just trouble finding these things sometimes!!
