    Leica 50mm woes

    I like the Canon a lot, in low light. Out in the field it has the Gaussian characters: small and thin focal plane wide open, with a lot of attention to the smallest artifacts of the skin, somewhat like the last generations of Leica lenses. Follow the finger She helped me a bit :) The lens...

    Leica Adapting a Jupiter-3 in Contax mount for optimum wide open performance

    Thanks. I did it, worked out fine. Apart from that I to turn it off, I held the diaphragm ring also in the hand, and that slipped a bit so that is off-center now, display does not show 1.5 but just before that. :-(( Stupid me. But the black ring on the outside is sooo small. Should have used...

    Leica Adapting a Jupiter-3 in Contax mount for optimum wide open performance

    Thanks. I have used brown baking paper in the past (it is coated) and it can be easily cut (to the contrary of aluminium foil). This is measuable to be about 100n for a layer. So I should take the head out completely, add the little paper ring, place it behind the existing shim for sturdiness...

    Leica Adapting a Jupiter-3 in Contax mount for optimum wide open performance

    Yes, one single screw, about 2 mm from the bottom. Then, if I turn it loose, I expect the head will be able to turn loose from the filter ring up front. I also expect that if I only unscrew the lens by say 90 degrees the focus will be optimum at F 1.5. Are my expectations too high ? Then I...

    Leica Adapting a Jupiter-3 in Contax mount for optimum wide open performance

    In the past I had a 1962 Jupiter-3 in LTM, that was impossible to focus consistently (front focus issieus well known because of different Leica body register). I had adapted it myself through some twisting to work superbly wide open. Unfortunately I sold it. I regretted it the day after. The day...

    Orion-15, a 28mm LTM lens. Interesting how, even at F8, there is a very strong sense of depth. (Although I must say, the right side of the picture with this lens is misaligned in the sense that it is mucho softer on pictures of a brick wall, here that is not to be seen of course).

    It's really mass. Big numbers. I mean, when I got my M8 in 2007 I took about 7.000 pictures a year, with the M240 after 2014 which is a bit clumsier it is about 3.000. That mass, looking at each picture in Capture One, critically, helped me to increase my skills. It takes hours of learning...

    Zig-zag through the festive season. Could be J-3, straight out of camera. Also non-competing :cautious:. Paris shop window of a chocolatier, somewhere around Rue Faubourg St Honoré. Great to see how this trace forms its own layer in the picture. This picture is hors-concours.

    What sensor size and resolution to equal 4x5"?

    How about the Leica monochrome camera's? Having no Bayer filter improves the resolution; and the new one has such a very high pixel count that should come a little bit in the 20x direction. I remember having seen large-frame (e.g. 3.5x5 to 4x6 cm) camera's, that really should fix the gap, if...
