We figured we’d take a Leica APO-Telyt-Modular R 400mm f/4 and modify it for use on the Leica S2. Yes, it works! Yes, it’s sweet!

Check back soon for the results of our in-depth testing and lots of sample images. We’re going to have fun with this one.

Good looking combo

    While the small 1.4x module is great, the 2x module is also quite impressive. Speaking from experience, with a rock solid head and tripod, the combination of the detail and resolution of the S2 and the rendering of the APO-Telyt-Modular system would be spectacular. For wildlife, also getting excellent feather detail and eye sharpness would be aided by the better high ISO capability of the S2 compared to the DMR. You can easily up the ISO to 640 or 1250 on the S2 in a variety of settings. I can imagine how much fun you are having testing out the combination.

    Update, to accomadate the lugs/cams too much metal must come off the Pentax to Leica adeptar, the lugs need to be removed aka butchered off, bugger.
