    Leica Digital CL with adapted lenses?

    What I really want, I guess is a digital Barnack and the CL seemed like an actual Leica branded way to do it, perhaps better than the E-PL1 I have now for that purpose. It looks like this isn't really the best way to approach it. So, the search continues ... APS-C, built in VF, cheap and higher...

    Leica Digital CL with adapted lenses?

    I have a soft spot for screw mount Leica lenses so that's my main driver.

    Leica Digital CL with adapted lenses?

    I was pondering today if the digial CL would work well with old LTM lenses via stacked adaptors? LTM -> M -> L ? Anyone tried this? I'm still trying to find a digital equal to my old IIIf and Summitar. I love my Nikons but miss a certain something about Leica.

    Leica After the homewrecking incident, what to do with the shrapnel

    Oh, yeah. Now that I'm almost done with a MF set (just one lens left) I may start doing the AF/AF-D set since they play nice with my 7100 and if I ever get a Df they'll do well then too.

    Leica After the homewrecking incident, what to do with the shrapnel

    I'll have to remember that when my Industar 22 finally arrives and I pop it on the old E-PL1 to get my tessar fix :D

    Leica After the homewrecking incident, what to do with the shrapnel

    There is also the G lens issues. I'm not as annoyed as some by the lack of an actual aperture ring since it can be done by the dials on the camera but by the same token I don't care to lose the options.

    Leica After the homewrecking incident, what to do with the shrapnel

    I've been finding that I like the older AF/AF-D lenses better than the newer AF-S lenses. Not sure why - a little smaller, yet feel better made than the super light plastic fantastic. OTOH, I can't complain optically - the 35/1.8 DG is amazing. I owned Leica in the past and loved the IIIf...

    Leica Not bad for a 16 year old 5mpx digital camera

    I remember learning about CMOS in relation to, 7400 series TTL components. Just never dealt with anything fancier than a detector cell for a door "ding dong" circuit.

    Leica Not bad for a 16 year old 5mpx digital camera

    Heh. Had to go do a lookup on the differences between CCD & CMOS in this situation. Turns out the first digital I bought - a Canon A590 had a 8mp CCD in it but you couldn't have told the difference by me. It was for ebay and other such stuff, not "real" photography. Really wasn't that bad a...

    Leica Company in the United Kingdom offering Professional Lens conversion to Leica AND a new Sonnar

    Bah, physics. Who needs that? :laugh: More seriously, I think you explained that once over at RFF and I had forgotten. But it makes sense that there was some real reason for it given the skill of the Nippon Kogaku & Zeiss optical people.

    Leica Company in the United Kingdom offering Professional Lens conversion to Leica AND a new Sonnar

    Which reminds me that I do need a 105 P & 135 Q in my bag too. :D Wish Nikon had done a 50 sonnar too but there is the 45 Tessar at least :D

    Leica 50mm woes

    If you decide you want a Leica lens let me suggest the single finest one I ever used - The Summitar 50/2. Summicron like stopped down, capable of almost crazy and soft wide open. I regret selling that lens more than any other.

    Leica "Leica" subreddit on Reddit

    Tom, Roger and you were the ones I missed the most from there, but really the place was well past it's "best by" date when I stopped going there. This place seems really nice and I'll take it happily.

    Leica Rangefinder to rule them all

    Always liked Canon for rangefinders. I still have my Canon 7 and keep fighting the urge to get a P.
