  • No. A OUBIO converts screw mount Visoflex lenses to M mount and has a tripod foot. Unless your Visoflex lens is screw mount you do not need it. LCT made several suggestions. Probably the Novoflex ...
  • The lenses designed for the Visoflex were mounted on the visoflex which was mounted on the camera body. If you mount a visoflex lens on the camera it will not focus unless you add a spacer of 41mm ...
  • You may have tried this already but if not you could try cleaning the code reader on the camera mount. I have never had any problem with hand coding Zeiss lenses. I use a Sharpie marker pen.
  • I agree that the 7Artisans 50mm f1.1 lens works well with Leica M camera bodies. However despite any extra clearance due to the L-adapter-M the lens will not focus to infinity when used with the ...
  • If you order the lens direct from 7Artisans specifying that you want it to have the TL/SL modification they will supply it with the mount of the rear element milled by a millimeter or two to ...
  • The Tele Elmar 135mm is a real bargain at present. I always found it rather challenging on my M240 using the rangefinder but quite usable with the clip on EVF. I am finding it even better on my ...
  • Have you updated the lens firmware to the latest version?
  • Unfortunately you are correct - no stabilisation.
  • Replied in Not Bad But...
    I think the 35-100 f2 lens is 4/3 not a micro 4/3. They work well on the Olympus E-M1 ii with an adapter.
  • Brian, when you get your G9 I hope you will tell us how you get on with it. Like you I currently have an Olympus E-M1 mk2 and a Panasonic G80 and am tempted by the G9. I tend to use my Olympus ...
  • I hope to be able to answer that question soon  as I have a SF26.. I am still waiting for my pre-ordered CL to arrive. My dealer tells me that he is expecting a delivery from Leica "in January". I ...
  • Very nice pictures Vikas. I see from your profile that you are mainly in Singapore but as you mention the coldest day can we assume that you are currently in the USA? It is pretty chilly here in ...
  • I am not surprised. I assume you ordered the "Leica" version and got the Olympus/Panasonic /Leica version which would work nicely with the Pana Leicas but not with the M,X,T nor it would seem the ...
  • I think  the thyristor technology is now regarded as outdated because when the thysistor measures enough light any remaining charge is wasted making it a rather inefficient system. The only auto ...
  • Nikon use the same layout of hot shoe pins as Leica so their extension cords work with the Leica system but I would expect the flash system to be different. Nearly all cameras use the centre pin ...
  • I agree. I often use my ancient Vivitar 2500 on my Leica M240 though I always use a Wein Safe-synch to be on the safe side despite Leica's claims that the M series cameras can tolerate quite high ...
  • Louis, It is possible that the contractual arrangements that existed between Metz and Leica may no longer apply as I think the most recent Leica branded flashes are made by Nissin.
  • That is interesting. Metz do offer versions for most makes except Leica thus forcing us to buy the very expensive Leica branded version. Red Dots are not cheap!
  • It is confusing that Leica use two different flash systems. This is not very clear in the documentation.
