By HGDJONESLooking to do more sports/action photography with my CL. Not Sports Illustrated covers - just kids soccer and theater production work. Worried that SIGMA 100-400 would be too heavy. I know CL is not a sports camera but 10fps with decent focus tracking should be good enough. Need at least 200mm to feel close enough in most cases.
By bgbI purchased a Q end of last year, liked it so much that I sold my Nikon DSLR, Lumix FZ-2500 and Fuji XE-T3. I then purchased the CL with the 18-56mm lens a few months later. Now with adapters to use my Rokinon wide-angles, and 7 Artisan lenses I find myself using the Leica CL way more than the Q. There's no doubt that the IQ of photos from the Q, a full-frame camera, are better than the Leica CL, t's a fantastic camera and lens with macro capability.. But I'm thinking of selling it add more lenses for the CL (or at least pay it off 😎). Anyone else face this situation? BTW, with all that's going on in the world at this time, I'm fully aware that this is no big deal, but it keeps my mind off the other cataclysmic issues we're experiencing. All opinions welcome, any recommendation for lenses?...thanks. I am currently waiting for arrival of the TTArtisan 35mm F1.4 lens to ship. Be Well everyone.
By twcxzHi everyone,
I'm currently working on a project to once and for all fix the analogue Leica CL's broken take up spool problem, by 3D printing them.
I've ran a roll through mine with version 2 of the spool and it works pretty good, but i'm working on version 3 which should be better still - I got the dimensions slightly wrong on this one - it's too short.
How many of you CL owners would be interested in buying such an item? They'd cost around £20 and be sold through eBay all said and done, and I'd make a video showing how to take apart the CL and install them, as well as reassembly - International shipping would happen too through the eBay GSP as I'm UK based.
The attached photo is version 2 and not by any means the final version as this is still in very early development, but the quality of the ones that go on sale will be much higher. This one was printed by a friend of mine, but I'm soon going to acquire my own printer and make them much better.
I know also that this doesn't look anything like the original, but when I copied the original part dimension for dimension, curve by curve, it didn't work and suffered the same problems as the original.. immediately. Thus I simplified it and made it more "3D Printer friendly."

I'm selling a superb Leica 50mm Apo Summicron - M Black Chrome limited edition lens.
This lens has been purchased new on 01/02/2020 and used for less than 50 photos so it is completely new, free from any mark of use.
It is under warranty until 01/02/2022 and sold complete with all accessories and original Leica luxury box.
This lens becomes difficult to find new or in second hand and its price is rising: (f.i.: launched at us$9700 list price it is now proposed by B&H at $10500 and there's only a few items left).
I purchased it because I wanted to have a collector item from Leica and because I knew the price of limited edition models is going up with the time.
But I have no Leica M camera anymore and then decided not to leave this beautiful lens on the shelf for years.
My asking price is the exact same price I paid for it. I could benefit from a nice 12% discount that you can also benefit from.
International shipping is possible but only using UPS + fully ensured value (I'm located in Brussels, Belgium).
Sales of 2nd hand items between private persons usually means no customs and sales taxes to be paid at the US customs.
I just sold a Leica S007 camera in California to a forum member and can provide references of past sales with perfect feedback from the buyer.
Thanks for watching,
By Jose_SalcedoThe optical and mechanical elements of the lens are in excellent condition, with clear glass and perfectly smooth focusing. The retractable sunshade has some minor damage but that does not interfere with the optical or mechanical operation of the lens, that work superbly.
The sale also includes an original Leica R-M Adapter ROM, #14642, in new condition, as well as a 60mm Leica Uva filter to use with the lens.
This lens has an exceptional optical resolution and color rendition.
