  • OK, I'm going to come across as an old camera phart. Anyway YOU want to make the pictures, not the camera, though the current generation cameras can try. 1) stop using auto ISO, you have to learn ...
  • Replied in Leica CL Input
    With an M lens f stop and focus are manual, within the CL you set the ISO and shutter speed, works nicely set on A, aperture priority or use M manual. I use a Leica M adaptor. The focus is good, ...
  • Replied in Leica CL Input
    I bought the CL because of the M lenses I had. The only one I am using is the 90 f2.8 Elmarit. I bought the 23 f2 Summicron, very nice lens, for something wider I have my 11-16 Tokina from my ...
  • Replied in Cherry blossom
    A very old cherry tree on the Washington DC tidal basin. This was a cherry blossom weekend crowds everywhere, but loved this tree. Leica CL with Tokina 11-16 f2.8 around f5.6 (adapter won't show ...
  • Replied in Cherry blossom
    Nice macro image (well a little lage to be macro) but a nice spring image. Heading to Washington DC to see their cherry blossoms this weekend.
  • Very nice images, originally I thought it might be a captive bird. There are no jessies on the legs so I was wrong. Every once in a while you can get a wild bird at short telephoto focal lengths. ...
  • Replied in First M Lens?
    My preference on M bodies is a 35 Summicron f2 (any vintage) just a nice set of lenses. I have used 35 Summicron, f1.4 Summilux and f3.5 Summaron and prefer the Summicron. I had 2 M cameras and I ...
  • Granted this will be a heavy lens but I am looking for something long on my CL. I have adaptors for several lenses and I am kind of tired of them. When I saw the 70-200 in the L mount I thought ...
  • Why I decided on the 23 f2, nice size, works very well on the CL, I am not an autofocus person but it is nice when you have it. I am using the big Tokina for now for really wide, if the 11-23 was ...
  • I find the 23 to be an excellent lens, the other fast wide to look at is the 21 f1.8 Voigtlander Ultron (M mount). I looked at both and decided on the 23, more compact, got a good price on a used ...
  • Definitely mud season on New Boston Rd. We have friends who live up there and on dirt roads off New Boston. River Road Lyme NH Canada 35 f1.4 Summilux, this road isn't too bad.
  • Sugar mapling is no longer picturesque, tubes going from tree to tree to 200 gallon tanks. If you see cans on the trees it is generally someone doing it for themselves, my neighbors do.
  • Just up Rt 5 from Norwich, been here about 15 years.
  • Created discussion thread A Walk in the Woods First Day of Spring
    Ok this is Vermont, northern USA, all with 23 Summicron Leica CL
  • The way it was explained to me by a guy who had worked for Leitz, their tolerances are much tighter all through the lens process, design, glass, and build. If they have a problem they fix it, shut ...
  • Just adapted a 40mm Makro KIlar to my CL, a tiny light macro that seems fine on the cropped sensor. At infinity on a film Canon there was light falloff at the edges. I have only used it for copy ...
  • I found the Leitz 11-23 too slow, so adapted my Nikon mt Tokina 11-16, big lens but well balanced and f2.8 as well as an APS-c designed lens. The Fotodiox allows aperture adjustment thankfully. Tok ...
  • B&H has Iberit Handevision lenses, not as cheap as 7 Artisans, more in the Voigtlander price range. Tom
  • As with the rest of the fan boys here I am really liking the CL. I have the 23 (really, really nice lens) and several old M lenses, 25mm, older 35f1.4, an old 90 f2.8 . Images are terrific, bigger ...
  • With the stratospheric price of the 60mm Leitz lens I bought a Nikon adapter so I could use my 55 Micro Nikkor on my CL. It works well but is totally manual. Close focusing is tight with a 55, it ...
