  • Joel:  In rough calculation, if you take 20% V.A.T. off their initial price, but then charge 50 Pounds U.K. for shipping (which they quoted me!), the increase in price in dollars would then be ...
  • I have been in further contact with Clifton Cameras and we have mutually come to the conclusion that there was a misunderstanding in my order.  They apparently hadn't realized I was in the U.S., ...
  • As reported earlier in this thread, I ordered one of these from Clifton Cameras and, also as I reported, they acknowledged my order -- and took my money via PayPal and American express -- and said ...
  • To possibly clarify a bit on the source of stock, I just received the following message from Clifton Cameras: ‚ÄúThank you very much for your recent order. As stated online, the stock is due to arriv ...
  • I've placed my order for one at this amazing price just to provide me a back-up GXR body in case my present one ever gives out.  The benefit of the included zoom lens gives me the plus of using ...
  • Today Sean Reid published an additional review that looks at the performance of one 25 mm and two 28 mm compact rangefinder lenses on the Leica T as compared to the Ricoh GXR Mount-A12. It includes ...
  • As one who lived four years in New Delhi years ago, your excellent "snaps" trigger some fond and vivid memories.  Many thanks.
  • Runnicle: Here is a brief summary of (and quotes from) Reid's conclusions: He states that his report looks at the performance of two compact 21 mm rangefinder lenses on the Leica T as compared to ...
  • Runnicle:  I will ignore Caldwell's snide remarks and attempt to deal with you directly on this. (In the past I have benefited much from the valuable and useful information in this forum from ...
  • In this subscribed review, interestingly the GXR M-Mount get higher marks than the new Leica-T with several wide-angle lenses.  Makes me feel good.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Can you tell me/us more about your Ricoh GXR with the modified M mount converted to 720nm infrared," or have you already posted info on this in the past? Thanks. Jim
  • Don: I'll be following your new thread with interest. Did you, by the way, notice my report last week on my successful usage of alternative Fotodiox adapters with my newly acquired DKL lenses (I ...
  • Tom: I have been a very satisfied Clearviewer user for years now, on various of my non-SLR cameras, both with its tripod mounting and its hotshoe mounting. I am now using its hotshoe mount, in the ...
  • Run:  Received today both the SK DKL 35mm f.2.8 lens (ordered from eBay at what I thought was a quite reasonable price -- $80 USD) in excellent condition, and the Fotodiox DKL:>Nikon adapter ...
  • 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 ...
  • Run: Try using this as your eBay search designation: SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH RETINA CURTAGON f2.8/35MM LENS.
  • Run:  There are a number currently offered on eBay in the U.S., one of which I will likely attempt to purchase.  Regards, Jim
