    Leica A Small 35mm Lens Test

    I recently received a CV 35mm LTM f/1.7 and the advice that it is a good lens. I have been using an old Canon 35mm LTM f/2.0 (Black) with pretty good results. And I have the CV 35mm f/1.4 Nokton II. So why not compare them? I threw in an old '51 Jupiter-12. They are in order Canon, CV...

    Leica Question re Amedeo Adapter

    DPR Leica refugee

    Hi, I am Jay. I am in Sugar Land, Texas. My first real camera was a Kodak Retina IIa. That is when I fell in love with rangefinders. I used my brother’s M3 on occasion and had a Canonette for a while. After that it was Nikon SLRs and DSLRs. I have now back in the Leica fold with a CL and a M10-R.

    L-Mount L-mount short telephoto options - 70-300 vs 70-200 f4

    Anyone got any views on these two lenses? The 70-300 seems to get very mixed reviews which leads me to conclude there's a lot of copy variation. The 70-200 looks a better option, but it's more pricey of course and only goes to 200mm without the TC.
