  • The elmarit lenses are both excellent but how they work on a CL I cannot say.  The 28mm is very small and light so may suit a smaller camera.. if you are looking at a 21mm, consider the super ...
  • I spent 18 months in South Africa in the early 70’s (71-72), mainly the Transvaal as was and the Orange Free State, as was. It seems a shame, after all this time that the townships still flourish. ...
  • The reason for using a longer focal length lens, for portraits, is (a) to allow more distance between subject and camera ( this prevents noses looking too big and out of proportion) and (b) to ...

  • There is another boat on the left, just popped over the horizon but the white object on the left is a hotel.. I think. If not, then there are seven boats.

    In the same way that Leica represent something special in camera history, the Metz hammerhead represents a similar position in flashgun history. You pop in the battery and it’s ready to go to ...
  • A lot of Leicas have been used during wars, maybe you mean sports where it’s impossible to get into the action.

    The 3501 module is the “Leica” module but whether circuits have changed, during the digital revolution, I am unsure. Thanks for your comeback.

    The sca 3000 system, does the 3501 module work okay with the SL 601 and M 240?

  • 28 to 70mm f2.8 was available from Canon as an “L” lens and was very well received. It morphed into the 24-70mm which could be considered the zoom equivalent of a 50mm. Maybe it will make a ...
