New to Leica and Forum | Elmarit 100 APO Macro Question

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello,

I am new to Leica and this forum so apologies if this question has been addressed before. 

I am shooting on an M10-P w/ most current firmware updated. The question I have is when I shoot on the Elmarit 100mm APO Macro lens, the camera will not focus peak. I am using the lens with the Leica R Adapter M on the M10-P since its obviously an R mount lens. All of the other lenses don't have this problem. Is this a "live with it" problem?

Cheers,

cl.

Welcome here,

Strange indeed.

As I've never rely on focus peaking with my M10, never seen this when I use the Apo-Macro-Elmarit-R 100mm on my M10.

Just tried that minutes ago, you are right that focus peaking never shows, close distance or far.

In my usual "front button magnify", it does show up, so you may focus with the "mag" to have along the focus peaking.

Thanks for the reply. That actually works perfectly. Thank you! I rarely use that button if ever, but apparently I should. 
 

Cheers.

With M- or LTM-lenses, which are rangefinder coupled, focus peaking is activated by the same mechanism which is used for the camera‘s rangefinder. With R-lenses and other lenses without coupling of the rangefinder this cannot work, so you have to use the front button.

      Aus meiner Sammlung verkaufe ich ein Leica bzw. Leitz Elmarit-R 1:2.8/28 (Version 1, 3-Cam, 11247) mit Rückdeckel, Gegenlichtblende und schöner Seriennummer 2996464.
      Es kann an allen Leica Kameras mit R-Bajonett verwendet werden (3-Cam) und über entsprechende Adapter natürlich auch an aktuellen Digitalkameras.
      Das Objektiv ist sauber und trotz seines Alters von ca. 40 Jahren in einem sehr guten Zustand. Die Fokussierung läuft gleichmäßig, altersbedingt hier etwas schwerer als bei neuen Objektiven, die halben Blendenstufen rasten sauber ein. Das Glas erscheint mir nahezu makellos und die Blendenlamellen sind frei von Spuren. Bitte Fotos ansehen.
      Ich verkaufe hier parallel auch noch ein sehr schönes Summicron-R 1:2/50.
      Bezahlung per Überweisung, Kostenloser Versand (EU, CH, NOR)
      Dies ist ein Privatverkauf unter Ausschluss der Gewährleistung bzw. Sachmängelhaftung. Ein Umtausch und Rückgabe sind ebenso ausgeschlossen. - - - - - - -
      Selling from my collection a Leica or Leitz Elmarit-R 1:2.8/28 (Version 1, 3-Cam, 11247) with rear cap, lens hood and nice serial number 2996464.
      It can be used on all Leica cameras with R-bayonet (3-Cam) and of course with current digital cameras via appropriate adapters.
      The lens is clean and in very good condition despite its age of about 40 years. The focusing runs smoothly, due to its age somewhat heavier here than with new lenses, the half aperture stops snap in cleanly. The glass seems almost flawless to me and the aperture blades are free of traces. Please have a look at the photos.
      I also sell a very nice Summicron-R 1:2/50 here
      Payment by bank transfer, Free shipping (EU, CH, NOR)
      This is a private sale. Excluded are any warranty or liability for material defects, exchange and return.

      Hallo liebe Community,
      ich bin neu hier und habe gleich mal die erste Frage. Seit kurzem besitze ich ein Leitz Elmarit-R 28mm/2.8 und suche vergeblich einen Adapterring um Filter (77mm) oder auch 4x4,56 Glasfilter zu adaptieren/ verwenden. 
      Eine Sonnenblende gibt es nicht, dass einzige was zu sehen ist, sind zwei kleine metal Stäbchen am äußeren Gewinde. (Bild ist angehängt)
      Wäre super jemand könnte mir diesbezüglich helfen. 
      Vielen Dank

      Sometimes Leica's limited edition cameras leave us scratching our heads with regard to appearance/style.  I don't think that's going to be the case with the M10-P Reporter.
      JMHO but this is a very nice looking camera:
