I'm tackling the following issue since ages . I would like to use my 82 Apo Televid as a lens , for various purpose : nature , and possibly astrophotography.
A) i'm chasing the leica 42306 adapter (no longer in production, but available in some places)
I have a question with this adapter , it's offers a T-mount interface in the back (camera side) but i've seen a female thread. I'm puzzled because I would have been expecting a Male thread, because all the T-mount camera adapter I have seen have F thread in the front.
Anybody having experience of such adapter would be welcome.
B) even more difficult question: my ultimate idea is to use the Televid as a "deluxe" guiding scope in astrophotography: for that purpose, I would like to use its native focal length of 440mm, that is to say bypass the 42306 that works as a focal multiplier .
I have seen that when one removes the eyepiece of the Televid, there is a Male thread (in parallel with the Leica "bayonet" mount (translation from French). This thread looks like 42x1mm or 42x075mm . I just wander if it would be possible to adapt an eyepiece holderr to this thread, to use standard eyepieces or a camera.
Any help, comment, advice, would be highly appreciated
By Charlie F.I own a Leica Q2. My first Leica.... and I love it. From the simple controls, to the image sharpness and colour fidelity.
However, for my occasional gig and landscape photography I use a Nikon D850 with a range of long and prime lenses. I'm toying with the idea of trading my Nikon for the mirrorless SL2. The similar controls, lens quality, sharpness and build quality are all factors in my consideration. Is this a sound move? Can I make it work? What lenses would be available to me [not just from Leica, but maybe Panasonic/Sigma, etc]?
Any advice/criticism welcome. Thanks!
NB. I currently use a 300mm Nikon lens for some of my photography, is there an option in the Leica system for such a lens?
By ScottjonI am looking for a Nikon F/G mount adaptor to L mount. There are a lot of $20-30. Models and $125 up models on the market, but very few reviews
I left Nikon for Leica because the newer lenses seem to be not as sharp as they were years ago. However, i do have some amazing lenses from a few years ago that i kept when i sold not D5’s.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a really good quality adaptor ?
By bags27I'm an (extremely happy) Q owner and also shoot film with a Nikon FE with 24, 50, 90, and 80-200 glass (all, AI manual)
I'm thinking of the Nikon 7200, which is a half sensor and which will work perfectly (increasing focal length by 50%) with my old lenses, so that I can also buy the fantastic AF-S Nikkor 300 f/4E PF ED VR that with the half sensor will turn into a 450 for birding.
However, after the Q, I just can't fully get my head around any digital camera besides the Leica: just too many buttons and too inelegant. I really love what I read about the CL and have thought about it for my non-Q alternative (which will make all the lenses the same focal length as the Nikon 7200).
However, I also want to use all my Nikon glass, esp. my contemplated 300. Or is there any obvious (not more than ~ $2k) alternative for birding telephoto (equivalent of at least 400) with the CL?
Is anyone shooting Nikon glass with their CL? how and what's their experience?
