    Leica Lately I've been shooting with Voigtlander lenses

    I just noticed that in the last few weeks I've been keeping the VC 40mm f1.2 on the M240 and Carrying the VC21mm f1.8 in the bag... Actually they are brilliant lenses. Here is a sample in color and B&W (courtesy of the Nik plugin). This was taken handheld with the CV Ultron 21mm f1.8

    Leica Corrupted Card ......

    I'm suddenly getting about half my files coming into Lightroom like this, all skew whiff. Could it be the card is corrupted? I notice that my M240 also jams a lot again when using the Olympus viewfinder, it did this some time ago and finally stopped working altogether. Just trying to avoid a...

    Leica Leica CL with M21/3.4

    I just bought a CL with the M21/3.4 mounted. I have never used the EVF before. I am not used to the focus-peaking yet. I feel that it is not as easy to focus precisely as the maunal lens on the DSLR. Does any friend like to share your experiences in the focus-peaking? Also, your experiences in...

    Leica B&W film processing/scanning in West Country UK

    I'm a newcomer to Leica Place, and a returner after many years to shooting b&w with my Leica M3. I want to send/take my films (Ilford XP2) off for processing (C41) & scanning to cd, but it seems after some googling that this is going to cost the best part of £20 per roll, which simply doesn't...

    Leica Canon rangefinder repair suggestions?

    I think I did a proper search for previous threads on this topic. I was surprised not to find any. Forgive me if I did it wrong. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions about a repair person who is good with the later Canon rangefinders? I'm talking about the Canon P, VI-L, L-1 vintage, not...

    Leica Zeiss Hologon 16/8 converted to Leica M mount

    Since I am expecting to get back my Leica M9 soon with a new sensor, I decided it is best to focus on using this camera and not get another camera at this time. I was drawn to the Zeiss Hologon 16/8 since a while as it will open up a new type of photography for me. I am used to 50mm and 35mm...

    Leica Is the M9 sensor replacement same as sensor in M240?

    I am still waiting to get back my M9 from Leica NJ, and I wonder how the images will be like with the replacement sensor. Has anyone here seen major differences in their M9 after getting a new sensor?

    Leica Showcase Minolta 5cm F1.8, Leica Thread Mount

    This lens is a 6 element in 5 group Double-Gauss, the same as my Minolta Hi-Matic 9 that I bought in 1969. That was a lot of lawns. First shot with it- could see on the back of the M9 screen that it rendered like the lens on my Hi-Matic. I'm happy. The salesman at K-Mart convinced me that the...

    Leica Showcase CV 40mm f1.2 images, first impressions

    So I decided (impulsively) to purchase this lens after sending back the 7 Artisans 50mm f1.1 I had ordered just a few days before. I did not like the softness of the 1.1 which might have been a less than excellent copy. Anyway, I really want a very fast lens with great characteristics but I'm...
