Hi, I wonder if anyone knows if there is an exposure preview deactivation option on TL2? I understand that it is avaliable on CL and SL which allows the LCD screen or EVF to remain bright enough for framing and focusing when a non Leica ttl flash is attached. Many Thanks. Kind Regards, Gil

Sigma Fp stopped working  when I put M lens with Metabones adapter  LM to L. Just black screen and no one button works . No picture...When I put back Sigma lens -Fp works normal. I put  the same M lens  with adapter back on  Leica TL2 and it works. Everything worked  fine two  days ago with the  same adapter on Sigma Fp. Adapter for Pentax lens  to L  worked , too . What is the problem ?

Hi all I have been out of the photography scene for a bit....but my creative juices are flowing again. I still have my nikon lenses,24-70, 70-200, 14mm, 28mm, 50mm. I have an old d90 and D300. But I am looking to move to a bit more up to date. I have always loved Leica film cameras. I have thought about the TL2, Q Series, or M Series. Any thoughts as why not to go this route and look at a more up to date Nikon? Thanks, JJ

I have the pdf file of the English manual for the TL2 dated sometime in 2017 (I think). Newer firmware has changed some of the functions especially in regard to the two control wheels. The notes of F/W 1.4 say that the left wheel can be used for exposure compensation during video recording but my manual doesn't reflect that. So, how does one get an up-to-date (F/W 1.4 or later) English manual for the TL2? Dan

My apologies if this has been answered before but I searched this forum and coudn't find the answer. Basically, is it possible to use zone focusing on a CL/TL2 with a TL lens? Would it be possible if I used an M lens + adapter with the distance markings on the lens? Thanks for your time and help. Dan

Hi, I have no experience in video shooting, so I'm asking a few basic questions. I would like to do a 3 minute video (basically turning the pages of a book on a desktop). Is there a consumer daylight bulb available that represents true daylight (eliminating color cast)? I will be using a Leica TL2 with a 50mm Summicron for the job. What would be the best exposure and shutter speed to use? Thanks so much for the advice:) Aaron

I already own the Leica TL2 and zoom lenses. Originally budgeted for the Fuji 50R, but decided to wait for the Panasonic.  Should I go for the 24mp or 47mp? I only print up to 13 by 19 in. But iI plan to use my Leica lenses,  TL, R and M. Your inputs much appreciated.

The Leica Q has been rumored to use Panasonic's Depth-from-Defocus; the Leica CL seems faster at auto-focusing than the TL2 is possible that same AF could be true for the CL?

I'm in the market for my first Leica. I like the TL2, but I worry about obsolescence because it was released almost a year ago in July 2017. Here's my question: When do you think Leica will release the TL2 successor? This is the release history of Leica's TL-System cameras: Leica T (2014) Leica TL (2016) Leica TL2 (2017) It seems reasonable to think they'd release the TL2 successor this year or next year, but I wanted to ask the experts for a more informed opinion.

I am considering selling off my |Pentax K1 dslr) and lens and contemplating buying a Leica CL. Had anyone in this forum jumped ship from Pentax (or any other brand of dslr for that matter) to a Leica CL or TL2 and was it a positive move? I love the K1 but it is heavy and seldom used and in reality little fun to use anymore. I want something more versatile and fun to use. Many thanks. Ray :-)
