Very good picture!

Leica CL + Nikon 50mm 1/1.4 is a great combo!

Thank you, Francois. Yes, I love to use this old lens. It always surprises me; but not very practical for street photography. AF works better for fast shots.

I will buy the Leica CL and the Nikon lenses adapter. I have 24mm, 50mm, 55mm Micro, 135mm Nikkor lenses.

Currently, apart my combo Nikon D700 and Leica Elmarit R 90mm, I use my Fuji X100 original. The two batteries of my Leica D Lux 4 are dead, so I can't use it.

Take care and post pictures!

Regards.

François

CL works so well with old Nikkor lenses, via Novoflex adapter. This adapter doesn't have any electronic connection between the camera and the lens and I am using my lenses like with a film camera.

You have a good collection of Nikkor lenses and if you are patient to use them manually, you would enjoy them. I had 135 but traded it as I was not using it often. Besides 28mm, 50mm, the excellent 85mm, I also have a Angenieux 35-70mm with Nikon mount that is amazing. But a little over sized on CL, although it works much more easier on T.

I used to have DLux 3, 4 and 5. I loved them and miss them a lot as pocketable cameras. Cellulars completely screwed up the Panasonic/Leica portable cameras. I found DLux 109 too big for  pocket and got rid of it after a while.

Enjoy shooting, dear friend,

Very best,

Louis

Angenieux were/are excellent glasses. I never had one but I know they were of great optic quality!

All the best.

As you  know, Angenieux is a French lens maker that has principally making lenses for movie cameras and  won Oscars for technical achievement. When this lens for Nikon was on the market in Paris, I rushed to get one. I don't know about todays glasses of its category, but in those days, it was the fastest  35-70  zoom with f/2.5.  It is amazingly sharp with a beautiful bokeh. Here, on my T with a Novoflex Nikkor adapter.
