  • The 1.4 35mm II MC is an interesting lens. I asked Photo Village about it and they said that it is much improved over the first version and that it is superior to the F2 Ultron. They said ...
  • Fair enough. I think for now I will stick with the 15mm. I am not sure if there are good cheap 21mm options...I have seen the Voigtlander F4 but that doesnt work well in color on digital Leicas. I ...
  • I didn't buy the 15mm viewfinder. I do have the olympus EFV though. It is not the easiest lens to focus. LV works for framing in the EVF or on the screen but getting sharp focus is a little bit ...
  • I ended up buying a used 15mm 4.5 III VM because I found one locally at an ultra low price. Now I still need a more normal lens. I am tempted to buy the 1.2 40mm or the 2.0 35mm Ultron. I am having ...
  • I thought 35 and 50 were a pretty common pair for Leica cameras? but you are right that they are very close in focal length. The 28mm lenses are bigger...which is less appealing as a primary lens.
  • Are you happy with the wide open results of the 1.5? the 2.5 looks like a very nice size. The difference between the 15mm 4.5 I II and III is pretty stunning. the 75 looks more reasonable.
  • Hmm the 75mm Summarit is interesting. Also now interested in the Voigtlander 15mm f4.5. Is the version III worth it over the version II? I think Lightroom and Capture 1 can correct for version II ...
  • Thank you for the responses. Are there any small 75mms? I basically just picked lenses based on images I liked on Flickr. The reasoning for the 40mm 1.2 was mostly just smallish size and speed. Als ...
  • Interesting. I am looking at some of the same lenses too. So is the f2 Ultron only good on film when compared to the summicron asph? I know some lenses dont work well on digital leicas, but are ...
  • Created discussion thread Voigtlander Kit Which 3 For Type 240?
    I am buying a M240 and I want a three lens kit to start with. If you stuck with the Voigtlander range what three would you pick? I don't think any combo would blow my budget. I am thinking of the ...
  • I ultimately just want to try it and see if this makes photography more fun. I ended up with a used M240 + a Leica 50mm f2.8 Elmar-M and a Zeiss 35mm f2 ZM. I really enjoyed my Contax cameras, like ...
  • Oops I just make a thread about batteries. You think a second one is necessary? It seems to last a really long time...more than any of my Nikon or Olympus digital cameras.
  • Created discussion thread How many batteries for M240?
    The battery lasts forever to the point that a spare won’t be necessary 99.9% of the time but this would be my first digital camera where I don’t have a spare. I like the piece of mind of a second ...
  • I ended up going the cheapo route to start. I got a used M 240 (silver unfortunately) for $2500. The camera is a great, lightly used condition with the original box accessories and a brand new ...
  • Thank you all for your responses. I am thinking of going with a Leica M10-P and then starting with some cheaper lenses (unless the $5.8k M10s from BigBoxSuperstore or 6th Ave Electronics have a ...
  • Looking for some advice from the forum: My goal is to have a camera that will make photography fun and that I will bring everywhere. I am trying to figure out what would make the most sense. I want ...
