I take this view, from the roof of our offices and labs building every few years.  There is a new building in the scene, the National Library under construction in front of the Knesset.

The 'eyes' have it . . . SL75mm at f2.0.  Who needs a 10k Noctilux?

In my opinion, your image could benefit from one. What I see is a lot of noise in the background so a few stops faster lens would be great here. I know I am pixel peeking, on purpose, because I found your question rather amusing. Besides I’m not sure where you find a (new) 10K Noctilux. In Sydney, the 75mm Nocti is $19,900 ($15,000 in USA money) and the 50mm Nocti is $18,300 ($14,000 in USA money) 😂 😂 😱

Thanks for your comments and you make a good point, although generally I don’t pixel peep (or peek!).  This photo is straight out of the camera, with no adjustments, and could probably be improved with a little extra work.

As you probably guessed, the Noctilux comment was intended to be humorous, but I would probably have missed the point of focus at f1.25 if I had this lens.  I believe the retail price for the 75mm in the UK is £10,700 but can be bought for £10,250 (or thereabouts) at most Leica dealers.  Not sure how that compares at current FX rates.

Interestingly, the 90mm Summilux is can be bought for 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..
