    Leica My Travel Combo: 28 + 50

    Hi guys, just wanted to share some photos with the 28mm and 50mm combo. I think I like it best. Basically I am a 50mm guy, but at times we need that occasional wider fov, so I added up the 28mm and it fills up nicely. It's the widest view in the RF viewfinder anyway. I have a 24mm 1.4 on the...

    Leica So how's the Leica Q?

    Am not a 28mm shooter... that's just about what keeps me at bay in getting one. So how's the Leica Q doing on your end? Or if you don't own one yet, is it still high on your list? (got a Summicron 28; but can't really say I can shoot with this solely, OTOH it pairs best with the 50mm!)

    Leica Circular Banding on MM?

    Noticed some circular banding on Monochrom shot at high-iso (iso3200 & up) underexposed by a few stops. It is not visible on web-sized photos, but on full-res, they are. They are not when properly exposed hehe. here's an example maybe you can see... Have you encountered such? I wanted to know...

    Leica M9/MM battery prob?

    I have noticed around same battery behavior on 3 of my batts... it is good until 50% of the battery life (as indicated from the M body), from there it dies out rather so quickly. What I noticed is when the battery is still new, it works fine. But as time goes on, say like after a few months of...

    Shooting India with a Monochrom

    At first, I really didn't felt comfortable the idea of shooting this country that is full of life and color with only a black & white camera, hence I also brought along another system (Micro 4/3s*) to complement my other shots. Overall, am satisfied with the combo, and would not hesitate to...

    Leica Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 Heliar anybody?

    I tried this in a store, wow I'm impressed! I like the size, and the price (relatively speaking). I took a couple of shots but it is still in my SD card. Anybody has this? Thoughts? //a big plus also is it takes 52mm filter! //am I doomed with a fourth lens? Oh no. :blush:

    Leica Monochrom sensor problem?

    Help, help! I was planning to send my MM for a CLA at the nearest Leica service center (HK), I've been seeing these nasty sensor dust spots that can't be removed by the usual bulb blower. When I emailed to the authorized Leica service center (HK), with the attached screenshot below, the reply...

    Leica My third lens?

    First it was the 50 Summilux, then the 28 Summicron... Now, what's next? I'm looking at the 90mm. Summarit 2.5 maybe? Is the 90mm really that hard to focus without a magnifier? Any suggestions? :confused:

    Leica Summicron 28mm Loose Front Section

    My 28mm Summicron F2 ASPH had a loose front section after shooting for a couple of days straight... and noticed some loose screws. The front section that holds the filter thread moves clockwise and counter, but it doesn't seem to tighten up either way. Any DIY solution? Though I don't like to...

    Leica Anybody shoots without an external viewfinder?

    For lenses wider than 28mm? Like 21mm or 24mm. Curious to hear what are your experiences and thoughts.

    Sony RX1 - the camera I don't need.

    But certainly wants one. Anybody out there feels the same ? (All the more the RX1R makes it a stronger proposition. :biggrin:)

    Leica Elmarit vs Summicron 28

    Hi guys, my new year's resolution was to self impose a one-lens policy for my RF which was the 50 summilux (I know it wouldn't last long!). But the new year seems to be far away now, it's mid-way through the year, I thought of considering my next RF lens. And I wanted to make some sense about...

    Leica What strap for your Leica?

    I'm currently using the stock leather strap from the MM, it has soften a bit by now, good enough... But I'm looking for another. I had an Artisan and Artist Silk Cord, but it was the version for DSLR and the plastic fastener broke, I didn't want to risk the strap getting loose on the Leica. So...

    Leica What next lens to get after the 50mm?

    I shoot mainly for street and travel photography with the rangefinder... I've been shooting almost 5 months with the 50mm 1.4 ASPH, I like the idea of being limited to one focal length. But just the other day, I was able to check and try at a Leica store a Summicron 28mm F/2, probably a bad move...

    Leica What is your camera bag(s) for your Leica?

    I have the Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag to carry both my rangefinder and Micro 4/3s camera. But I just picked up, by impulse, a Kata Lite - 433 DL bag. It fits in a Leica M Monochrom with 50mm 1.4 mounted, with half leather case, spare battery and card. It's good for those lazy days where...

    Leica Show us your shots with the 50mm

    Arguably one of the best focal lengths out there, so I think let's start a thread with images taken with the 50mm focal length. Here's my little share: Monochrom + Summilux 50mm 1.4 ASPH
