    Leica Summilux R 50mm version 1

    I've finally got off my bum and started a thread for this great lens. I use it on a Leica R7 for film shooting and a Canon 6D for digital. I love all it's characteristics - large aperture, colour rendition, 3Dness, sharpness and wicked flare given the right conditions. If anyone else has (or...

    Leica Leica M Landscape?

    Hi David, If you are looking at shooting wider than 28mm you also need to mount an external finder on the shoe mount (or guess the frame) as the M's do not provide frames for lesser focal lengths. I do a bit of hiking and do not use an external finder on my camera as they stick out from the...

    Leica Anyone here fixed vertical alignment on an M9 before?

    $50 didn't seem too bad compared to the (up to) $500 I was quoted by our Leica reseller to adjust it.

    Amin Requested feedback.

    Another (or second) option could be to run with something over a bit longer timeframe so that us dinosaurs that still use film have a chance to enter :rolleyes:.

    Leica Anyone here fixed vertical alignment on an M9 before?

    Amin, I had to adjust the vertical alignment on my M8 when I owned that but I'm not sure if the M9 is the same process or not. I had to gently pivot the red dot back and forth to soften the glue, then remove it. I bought a tool off eBay for $50 and then adjusted the mechanism by trial an...

    I use a Gordys leather wrist strap and don't miss having a camera dangling around my neck. The Leicas I have had it on are light/small enough for it to work quite well.

    Leica 35 or 50? Or something else?

    50 for me. I have a summaron 35 at the moment I am playing with too but am considering getting rid of it in favour of a 35-70 zoom for my R body for versatility. I'm just not into wide angles so for me 35 is as wide as I go.

    Leica Bit Coded Lenses

    In the back of my foggy memory (from my M8/9 days) is a recollection that the coding allows the camera to automatically compensate for some issues that individual lenses have such as colour shift and vignetting as well as allowing EXIF info to be collected. Most lenses that are not already...
