  • 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  • I think  the thyristor technology is now regarded as outdated because when the thysistor measures enough light any remaining charge is wasted making it a rather inefficient system.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.
  • Thanks Vetteran, Just to clarify, the flashes you mentioned are the Metz 26AF2 and the Meke MK320 which both have the same pin layout and work well with the V-Lux 114 providing TTL compatibility. ...
  • Leica cameras use two different flash systems. "True Leicas" M,X and TL series use this system as does the CL according to the Manual p59. Flashes such as the SF24, SF26, Sf40 etc are recommended ...
  • I think that we can all agree that the Olympus 12-100 is one of the best m43 zooms currently available but to benefit from its amazingly good dual IS you really have to use it on a modern Olympus ...
  • It might be easier to use a card reader with a usb type C plug - they are available now. Transfer speeds  can be much faster than wireless. That is how I do it with my Macbook.
  • I think we are agreed that the baseplate is metal. The battery cover is plastic probably to allow the use of an Eye-Fi Wireless card. My Leica M240 has a traditional removeable baseplate which has ...
  • Thanks for the clarification. My reply was directed to rashid7 who is having problems using the FL LM3 on his G85.
  • The G80/85 does not have the extra pin in the hotshoe which supplies power to the flashgun. You will have to use a self powered flash.
