    Micro 4/3 Adjust lens mount of E-M5.2?

    The mount of one of my E-M5.2s is quite tight. Tight enough to be a "bother" when it is used. Has anyone here ever adjusted your lens mount? Any special secrets? I'm sure it is "within tolerances", but surely mine is not the first one to just be too tight to mount or remove a lens.

    Leica Adapting a Jupiter-3 in Contax mount for optimum wide open performance

    In the past I had a 1962 Jupiter-3 in LTM, that was impossible to focus consistently (front focus issieus well known because of different Leica body register). I had adapted it myself through some twisting to work superbly wide open. Unfortunately I sold it. I regretted it the day after. The day...

    Leica Showcase Minolta Chiyoko 3.5cm F3.5 in Leica Thread Mount

    This lens came out in 1956 and features "multi-layer achromatic coating". This lens is rare, meaning a few hundred made in Leica mount. It was also available in Minolta's proprietary mount for the Super-35. This is the last lens that I needed to complete a collection of Minolta LTM lenses...

    Leica Showcase Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F1.5 Sonnar "T", Pre-War- converted to Leica Mount

    The Sonnar series of lenses evolved fairly rapidly in the 1930s. Every year seemed to bring a change in the mechanical construction, materials used, and optical formula. In 1935 Zeiss brought in the equipment to apply coatings to optics. By 1938 coated lenses were marked with a "T" for...

    Leica Showcase 1934 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F1.5, converted to Leica Mount.

    The F1.5 Sonnar is amazing, 7 elements in 3 groups. This uncoated lens has near perfect glass with a nice bloom on it. The glass on the F1.5 lens is more durable than that of the F2. It is common to find the F1.5 lens with glass that cleans up nicely. The F2 lens- glass is softer, much like the...

    Leica Comparing Leica M lenses and other Leica screw mount & R adapted lenses

    After messing around with some non-Leica lenses, I though I'd try to shoot my Leica lenses with a tripod at the same target. I had to dismount and remount the body because the lens selection was inadvertently left in a manual mode incorrectly set in a couple of cases. Also, all the lenses were...

    We know the 50mm f1 will be out this year. But, it was announced at the Fuji Summit that 4 new lenses are coming in the next 12 months. Any guesses what the other three may be?

    Which mount to speed boost?

    Say you didn't have any foreign lenses or adapters for your APS-C body. You want to invest in one good speed-boosted 0.71x adapter. Is there any particular direction you'd take? Why? Note: Nikon G covers all Nikon F lenses.

    Leica Showcase Minolta Chiyoko 13.5cm F4, Leica mount

    This is an obscure lens, very little written about it. The 4-digit "3xxx" serial number puts it around 1948. Hard to tell production numbers, but probably a couple of thousand. More than the Nikkor 13.5cm F4, many less than the Canon 135 F4. One of the best resources for Minolta Chiyoko lenses...

    Leica Showcase Industar-50 Collapsible Mount 50mm F3.5

    This lens is a Tessar formula 50/3.5 in a brass mount with "very shiny Chrome". Performance compares well with the post-war 50/3.5 coated Elmar and coated Zeiss Tessar 5cm F3.5. The I-50 is the third formulation of the 50/3.5 Tessar in the Industar series, it improves on the optics of the...
