More SL APO 28 SC closeups

 

 

Notice that even at f/11, the focus rolloff is quicker towards the foreground than into the background.  The shot was focused on the broad centers of the two pomelos.

Cheetah & her cub  -Zuka Game Reserve, South Africa  

SL2 & Sigma 100-400mm L  -I used this lens extensively last week while on a safari. The more I use it in the field the more impressed I am with its versatility, reach & IQ. To be fair, its IQ is not at the level of the Leica VE 90-280mm L, however the Sigma is very good & I find that I'm using the Leica lens less & less. (please click on image for better res.)

Beautiful.  RBB’s cat above looks cuter but these are both beautiful animals as well!

Superb! Have been thinking about the Sigma and your shots are very compelling.

Thank you. You won't go wrong with the Sigma it's very good up to a subject distance of approx. 15m, beyond that is where you start losing IQ.

With all of my long lenses on the SL2 & CL I'm using the electronic shutter, it makes a big difference. There's an element of shutter slap/shock with these cameras. 

Here's a shot  with the 1.4x TC, no noticeable loss of IQ.

Hi Michali, is it because of the reach or weight you using the Leica less?

      Has anyone found a source for a Leica SL2 L-plate with Spider holster pin? I've checked RRS and ProMediaGear.com without success. Maybe I'm not searching well enough. I'd appreciate anyone else's discoveries. 

      Because of ongoing neck and back trouble getting worse lately, I can no longer wear cameras on straps around my neck. I need to clip them at my waist with the Spider holster system, which I already have. 

      Thanks.

      Hi all, I have recently noticed a pulsing flicker in the outer parts of frame (where you would normally see a vignette) with my SL2 when filming video, it is not moire, but more of a pulse of three flashes and have no idea what it is but makes the video unusable. Has anyone experienced this?
      I am filming @ 24fps, C4K, L-LOG and NON, 180 degree shutter, with a Leica M lens and adapter, no fluorescents, I tested with image stabilizing and non and see it both situations.  
      Including a test below (random shots) and any help would be greatly appreciated! devastating to see this.

      My SL2 is locked up - indicates ERROR in top display, no viewfinder / EVF / LCD display, but I can see aperture changing in top display if I change the light in front of the lens. 
      No problems for four months after purchase brand new from B&H, then I use a Metabones-adapted Macro-Elmar-R 60mm f/2.8 for the first time, and after a day of successful photography the camera is locked up this evening. 
      Tried removing the battery for 10 seconds for reset - still locked up with ERROR in top display on power up. Tried different lenses - Sigma L-mount 85/1.4 DG DN Art that worked fine for four months, Leica M lenses on M adapter L that also worked fine for four months. Tried a couple different batteries. Still nothing. 
      **Any insights or fixes?** Combination of camera button presses to reset camera?
      Thanks.-

      I’m using an Atomos Ninja V 5” monitor driven by the SL2’s HDMI port. It displays the viewfinder image just fine, but none of the AF tracking and exposure data shown in the viewfinder. This gives me a very viewable display at low camera angles - the eyepiece no longer gets in the way, and I can actually see what I’m shooting.
       
      ** Is anyone else using an external monitor, and how do I get the AF tracking point and exposure info I see in the viewfinder to appear in the external monitor? 
       
      Right now all I get is the viewfinder image. I have to place the AF tracking point in the middle of the viewfinder and put the subject there when I’m using the external monitor without knowing if I’m AF tracking or not.
      Thanks..
