  • For my SD15 I purchased the conversion kit from Sigmacumlaude so as to be able to use all my old Nikon 35-mm film lenses with it.  Also the SD15 permits easy (and easily reversible) removal of the...
  • Reid Reviews just published an interesting evaluation which he describes as follows:"Today I published a new essay called "Rangefinder Lenses on Digital Bodies:History, Techniques and Challenges"....
  • I've been happily using my Sigma-refurbished SD15 for the past year, when I only recently made the wonderful (to me) discovery that by simply removing the behind-the-lens filter (which would...

  • Runnicle wrote: Jim, yes, your query produced at least one hit. But nowhere in the listing does it actually say which mount it is. You know that it is DKL, and I do, but what about the rest of the...
  • Seemingly over 90% of threads now deal with the A7 camera, which I'm not interested in (or can't afford).  I love my 5n, but this forum is now no longer of much use to me.  And it's been a very...
  • Runnicle wrote: Jim, I found 5 ebay offers for 135mm Schneider DKL mount lenses, but not one 35mm for sale. The search term that I used on eBay was "Schneider DKL lens." Run: Try using this as...
  • Runnicle wrote: Jim, it seems to me that the 35mm S-K lens is pretty rare, and I can't remember ever seeing one for sale. Run:  There are a number currently offered on eBay in the U.S., one of...
  • Runnicle wrote: Jim, I'll be looking forward to seeing in action some of the lenses you named. Speaking of Nikon zooms, their Series 1 75mm -150mm has a reputation for sharpness, and produced great...
  • Runnicle wrote: Jim, it will be interesting to hear back from you as to the outcome of getting from DKL to GXR through Nikon rather than through M42. Can we also inquire whether you have other...
  • Runnicle wrote: Jim, first let me offer disclaimer that i have no direct experience with the DKL->Nikon, plus Nikon->M mount adapter combination that you're considering. However, in theory it...
  • Based upon my reading of the predecessor thread, I am thinking of purchasing the SK Xenon 50 f/1.9 lens for use with the M-Mount on my GXR. Rather than going through the DKL to M42 to M-Mount...

  • I believe you've defined fairly accurately what my focusing problem is stemming from.  Many thanks, and also for more clearly explaining just what the term "bokeh" actually refers to.  I confess...
  • Alan:  These comments do help me further understand what the LT is doing, and possibly can do, to emphasize bokeh, i.e., extend  (but not deepen) the out-of-focus area.  This would indeed prove...
