@Joakim, I always hate to read posts of this nature - it's one of the worst things that can happen to a photographer (within the realm of photography, that is).

Hopefully getting the word out about your stolen kit and reporting it to Leica will bear fruit.  We all wish you rhe best of luck in recovering your gear.

Sorry to hear. Do you have insurance on your gear? Hopefully it was non-violent and you’re ok. 

We are all ok and have insurance that should cover it, haven’t heard from them yet but will during next week. Thanks for kind words!

Thank you very much for your kind words!! Yes, it’s been reported to Leica already so if it appears in Germany, they will let me know. Insurance should cover it and thankfully we are all ok. Picturewise I lost maybe about two-three weeks (since we have been traveling and backup is at home). But that’s ok.

Sorry to hear about what has happened. I hope you are able to get your beloved items back.

I travel often and i was wondering if you can share what has happened as a learning for all of us who travel with our beloved Leica to capture those moments.

Due to the ongoing police investigation I cannot share any details at this point, but I can only give a few hints:

*Never leave valuables in any vechicles, even for a short time

*Never leave you camera bag unattended

*Do not bring more than an absolute minimum of gear when travelling

*Take pictures of your home regularly

*Scan all receipts of your gear

*Take regular backup of your data

*Make sure to have a very good insurance that also covers your gear when travelling for work

 

I don't think I will ever see anything of the gear, but my insurance company has been very helpful and I have been fully compensated financially. I have since this happend bought a new M10, Super-Elmar 21 (instead of my 24) and a Summilux 35. I don't think I will replace the 90mm because it was so rarely used.

The gear you lost now belongs to your insurance company, since they’ve paid your claim. At least you can move on with the replacements you’ve bought.

Smash and grab while stuck in traffic - nice. 

What a world we live in... 🤮

      I have a question about choosing the right 28 mm M lens for landscape photography. If it has been asked in other posts already, I apologise in advance.
      Background
      I have decided to buy a 28mm for my M240. It will be used for landscape photography almost exclusively.
      For the first time in my life, I am leaning towards an Elmarit ASPH. However, I always have this nagging inner voice telling me, that Summilux and Summicron are the only ways to go no matter the situation.
      So before buying, I want to make sure that I will not be compromising on any key aspects important to me with an Elmarit. And since I live in a place where trying different lenses before buying is not an easy alternative, I turn to all you skilled Leica experts in here for advice.
      My needs
      I will be shooting at apertures between f/8 - f/11 most of the time. And I will only rarely be focusing on objects very close. So I am not that concerned about bokeh (which I guess is not that relevant for a wide-angle lens anyway).
      The same thing goes for color rendering, since I’m shooting digital and will be postprocessing the RAW files anyway.
      However, I am very interested in achieving good sharpness from corner to corner. And I am also concerned about the handling of lens flare.
      Question
      Do you think the Elmarit ASPH will be the right choice for my purpose? Or will the 28mm Cron or Lux in any of their incarnations perform noticeably better under the above circumstances?
      Reading lots of reviews, both the Cron and the Lux obviously outperforms the Elmarit for low light situations. But will there be differences in image quality, sharpness and flare handling when stopping down to f/8 - f/11?
      Any input will be much appreciated. Thanks!
      - Peter.

      Hi all,
      a while ago I've bought a used Elmarit-M 90mm (latest version) for which I found a few days ago by accident that the aperture blades do not fully disappear when the lens is used wide open. Consequently, the bokeh balls aren't circular, but have a more "saw blade"-like shape. If I turn the aperture ring beyond 2.8, which is possible by a tiny bit, the blades retract a bit more, but never completely (cp. attached images). 
      As I wasn't sure whether this is by design or a defect, I have contacted Leica Support and they tell me that this is the normal behaviour, but offer a CLA for the lens nonetheless.
      Could any other owner please check with his or her lens?
      Thanks in advance,
      Rolf

      This awesome 21mm lens with f/1.4 f-stop totally deserves its own thread.

      The popularity of fast wide M lenses among Leica photographers seems to drop as soon as one drifts away from the optical viewfinder lines of the eternal 28mm / 35mm / 50mm trinity. Leica even went as far as to discontinue its entire 24mm M line of lenses at some point in 2020, including the precious Summilux 24.
      Yet for reportage, conventions, events, concerts, wedding receptions and people photography, a fast wide angle is usually priceless. What the Summilux 21 f/1.4 offers over other slower (f/1.8 to f/3.4) lenses from the 21mm scuderia (there are not many for the M, although Voigtlander and TTArtisan offer direct competition with same or very similar f-stop) is the incredible separation of the subject from the background, an amazing feature for a wide angle lens. The 21 lux is of course a Karbe masterpiece, Erwin Puts even said in one of his articles that "If you compare the 1.4/21 with the 0.95/50mm you see comparable quality."

      Please post your images and share your experience with the 21 lux - everything from series VIII/8 filters and other adapted filter solutions to your experience with this light beast in the field and on assignments, preferrably wide open. This is NOT a SEM thread, but a comparison between the two is OK.

      Something I consider to be a glaring omission from Leica's current M-lens line-up is a light, compact, 35mm lens. Or am I missing something? F2.8 would be quite adequate considering the high ISOs available on the M10. The target market would be those for whom minimum size and weight is a major actor, plus those seeking a lower cost entry into the world of Leica M.
      As it is, Voigtlander offer just such a lens, though the reviews are mixed.
      I assume such a lens would be called an Elmarit, as the code seems to be
      Elmar -f4.0
      Elmarit f2.8
      -chron f2.0
      -lux f1.4 or faster.
      Any comments as to when such a beast might become available, or should I just go and buy the Voigtlander?
