By willeicaAnd now for something completely different. We all exchange our views here, but we do not hear each other speaking. Now you can hear what I sound like. After the huge amount of interest in my 'Swiss Photos' article, this website in California, which specialises in collections of all kinds, asked me to record a podcast on my camera collecting activities. This was recorded in the form of an interview and the host in California then edited it down to what is heard here. I was asked to avoid too much technical detail, but there is a lot here about Leica and some of my other collecting interests. The second half of the piece goes into the Swiss Photos in some detail.

By loadingHello everybody,
I need some advice regarding repairing/CLA of an M6.
The camera seems to have shutter capping (It might be partially my fault since I took out the camera at -7 degrees Celsius a whole day, however, after that, I shoot a roll in a normal temperature environment -my house- and everything was fine, all the images were fine)
So... these are my questions:
1. Do I sent the camera to Leica Camera without prior notice? I mean, do I ship it with DHL and that's it?
I'm asking this because on their service page they do not specify all the types of Leicas they are repairing. I'm assuming M6 is one of them but it's better to play it safe.
2. I want my problem to be fixed and also I want a full CLA (I've noticed some gunk on the winding gears and the low exposure times are not quite accurate). Should I specify the CLA part in the attached document or the CLA of a camera comes by default with the
3. Please don't laugh on this one but the camera will be sent to: Leica Camera AG, Am Leitz-Park 5, Wetzlar, Germany? I'm asking that just to be sure that I'm sending the camera to the right address.
I realize the questions are a little bit odd but I never sent a camera for a CLA (I usually shoot with two EOS3 cameras-never had a problem).
I bought recently this Leica from Ebay and I want to make it "as new" before I start shooting with it intensively.
Thanks in advance for the answers
By Aaron DanielHi all, I've noticed there isn't a dedicated thread for editing L-Log footage, so I will begin one here. I realize that colouring and re-touching video is a very subjective field, but I wanted to see how others work within Leica's limited literature surrounding post-production in video.
I've just updated my Atomos Ninja V to the latest firmware, which now allows for L-Log recording from leica (the past year with the SL2 was a little tedious working with both internally and externally recorded video footage). Now, with this update, BT2020 seems a lot nicer.
I've just done my first video about this update here:
By augustwest100I was wondering if anyone has done side by side comparisons of the Sigma L mount 24-70 with the Leica Vario Elmarit 24-90.
I find that I use my Sony a9 mostly as follows:
75% of the time I have the excellent 55mm Sony Zeiss 1.8 on it due to the best balance of size, weight, sharpness, bokeh, every day use
20% of the time I use the excellent zeiss batis 25mm 1.8
5% of the time I think about using my 70-200 f4 Sony or my excellent 24-70 Sony G master f2.8...and then decide I don't really want to carry it around, so I take the 25mm and the 55mm instead and alternate use. This can be a pain when I need to swap them back and forth but is lighter option and sometimes I just take one.
So I am trying to figure out where I would start with a Leica SL2 system, as I only have a Leica M 35 summicron presently:
Go with a 24-90mm Leica Vario Elmarit (costly and heavy) and use my M lens when I want a lighter setup to walk around with.
Go with a Sigma 24-70 for general use, and then put money towards an autofocus Leica 35mm or Leica 50mm.
Neither of these setups will address the 70-200 lens that would be missing, but I rarely used it, so I can do without I think and either pick up a used 135mm manual focus lens, or maybe a 100mm macro lens and crop it.
At any rate, would be nice to get some feedback on the image quality of the Sigma 24-70 as that might help me decide. I am continually trying to choose between the SL2, SL2s and M10r and it doesn't seem to make sense to get the SL2 system without at least one autofocus general purpose lens. Otherwise, might as well just go with the M!
