How do get the CL to recognise a Voigtlander 35mm F1.2 III lens?

Recommended Posts

I have a Voigtlander 35mm 1.2 Mk III lens fitted on my CL with the M-L adaptor. I set the lens detection to auto, in the menu, but I'm not convinced it is recognised as the shutter speed set seems too low.

The lens is not in the dropdown menu as those are all Leica lenses. 

The photos look OK in Capture One, but I would like to check that I've picked the right settings for the camera to recognise the lens.

Any ideas?

You could hand code the lens with the same code as a Leica lens, or set a user profile for it (i have one for the CV 35/1.4 v2), but beware that the CL corrects for distortion. Better choose a similar Leica lens re distortion then. Don't ask me which as i have no experience with the CV 35/1.2 v3 sorry.

Thanks Ict,

I could set the nearest Leica 35mm lens, which is the 1.4 ASPH. Do you think that would work better?

I'll give it a go.

I have no idea sorry. I should know how the CV 35/1.2 v3 behaves re distortion for that.

I wouldn't worry about it, manually setting the lens profile every time you change a lens is a pain. I have the pre asph 35 Summilux that doesn't have the lens profile settings. I tried to remember to set the lens profiles, too many things to do. None of my other Leica lenses have markings either, I am fine with out using the lens profiles. I would do a couple of photo sessions with out the profile, then set the profile and see if the images are any better. Unless you lens has some linear distortion the lens profiles don't do much.

The Summilux 35/1.4 pre-asph doesn't need any profile due to its low distortion.  

My point was to try out the lens, if any distortions bother the user then look for a lens profile. Also that it is a pain, at least a slow down to manually set a profile for the lens.

Will do, many thanks. I took it out today and it worked fine in the 'auto detect' mode even though no specific lens was showing.

      I am looking for an L-Bracket, with Arca Swiss compatibility, for use with my Leica CL camera. Occasionally it will be used with tele-zoom lenses, but mostly with smaller lenses.
      There are a few threads on this subject in the forum, dealing specifically with bigger cameras, but none that I could find relevant to the CL. Googling brings up a lot of brand-specific solutions; a few claim to be universal. I would welcome any reports from members of this forum, of user experience with such a device, and recommendations. Thank you.

      Hi, 
       
      I bought a ex cl on ebay. working fine. only after a roll of film almost lost the rewind. Very loose, coming off. 
      I realize this is a 40 yo, + camera. wondered if there is a fix for this, or do i have to send it in for a cla? 
       
      Any advise appreciated.

      Hi,
      Maybe the future of the CL and TL2 will be the same sensor of the Sony alpha 7C: compact camera, full frame and 24 MP? 
      There are also rumors of an SL2-S with this specs so it can be the end of the CL and TL lineup?
      Currently I have a T and I'm worried if upgrade to a TL2 for Black Friday or wait.. I will be happy to uprade for the extra megapixels of the TL2 but there are some cons for the fact that with the same sensor the pixels are smaller?
      Happy if anyone can help with my decision
