  • AFAIK it is a IMX455AQK Sony sensor. I have a photo of it in front of me but i’m not allowed to disclose it sorry. See: https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/330064-leica-aps-c-no-more/?do=findComme ...
  • In answer to the J. Allen's OP i would suggest that it is mainly the viewer's imagination. It is not the rangefinder, given that modern Leica M bodes are both RF and mirrorless cameras. When i ...
  • No SL camera here but i use almost exclusively M lenses on both Leica digital CL and Kolari mod Sony a7r2, let alone various M cameras. I keep one L lens for the CL though, the excellent Sigma ...
  • Nice images :-) Got a new v3 with my first M4 in 1971. Very good lens indeed but i have sold it in the eighties to acquire a v4. Only issue i had with v3 was veiling flare when shooting into the ...
  • Aside from some adapted lenses, lenses with no M mount don't work on M cameras. As for M-mount lenses, autofocus is possible on some mirrorless cameras with special adapters like Techart. I have a ...
  • Sure mirrorless cameras are simple but they are not all autofocus. A camera like the M11 has both RF and LV capabilities and yet is a manual camera using the best or among the best manual lenses ...
  • Yes but your M8 has no live view capabilties, so better use an M-mount lens on it. Some of them are affordable like Voigtlander's or even China made brands like 7artisans. I bought a 7art 35/2 for ...
  • Hard to imagine given that the register distance of micro 4/3 is shorter than Leica M's, let alone that there is no focus cam on micro 4/3 lenses enabling to operate the rangefinder of M cameras. ...
  • No idea about the tube but the mod was probably made to improve the flare protection of the FOOKH silver hood. Perhaps the previous owner did not like the taller FLQOO black hood below. Best, LCT
  • Fast and inexpensive is somewhat an oxymoron ;-) but you don't seem to own a 75mm lens. If you like this focal length for portraits or otherwise, i would recommend the Voigtländer Nokton 75/1.5. ...
  • Did you try on eBay? https://www.ebay.com/p/211776885?iid=115439482337 https://www.ebay.com/p/211776885?iid=255956272615 Best, LCT
  • As far as my M8.2 is concerned, i don't recall having seen a lens name in the exif data of any jpeg file since i got the camera in 2011. Best, LCT
  • Depends on the raw converter. Just checked on my M8 files that RawDigger displays the name of 6-bit coded lenses. Best, LCT
  • Advantages of the Summarit 90/2.4 vs Elmarit 90/2.8 v2 are f/2.4, a bit lighter weight (368g vs 394g with hoods), 0.9m MFD (vs 1m) and native 6-bit coding but i need to do side by side comparos to ...
  • What focal lengths were you using if i may ask? Your Q2 was 28mm and your CL how much, 35mm? If so, you were comparing a 28mm (28x1 for the FF Q2) to a 52mm (35x1.5 for the APS-C CL) equivalent ...
  • I use mainly an M11, a Kolari mod Sony A7r2, a digital CL and a bunch of M lenses i don't count any more. I prefer compact gear and my film days are over so i don't expect any change for now. What ...
  • Summilux 35/1.4, world’s first 35 mm f/1.4 lens for a 35 mm camera, entirely developed in the Leitz Canada plant of Midland, Ontario and remained in the line for 35 years since 1961 to 1995. Best, LCT
  • They are not. The Summicron 35/2 with goggles (11108) was made for the M3 because it had no 35mm frame lines. The version sans goggles (11308) was made for the M2 which did have such frame lines ...
  • I voted no. Any lens can have defects and the Leica QC is not better than others at avoiding them. As far as my (admittedly several) Leica lenses are concerned i can quote a stiff focus ring, a ...
  • I have no experience with either v3 or v4 Elmarit 28/2.8 lenses so all i can say is my Elmarit 28/2.8 asph v1 is a fine lens with a modern character, high contrast, moderate vignetting and CA and ...
