But I'm a bit concerned about the very tight thread. When removing it from the lens, there is a tendency to rotate the front element instead screing it off.
Can this harm the lens
Indeed, excellent results for portraits. I…[Read more]
Alex AR replied to the topic Help please ! prb with SanDisk 64GB SDXC Memory Card Extreme Pro Class 10 UHS-I in the forum S2 9 years ago
I also had problems with SDXC cards on the S… the reason was that they were pre-formatted in ExFAT or something like that. The S could not read or format them. Then I returned the card. I wrote to Leica and they told me that I should reformat the card in the Mac and that it should work then in the S. I could not try it as I had already returned…[Read more]

Does the TS adaptor really work on the Leica S with the Hasselblad adaptor? I think I read somewhere that it doesn't… but now insecure. Has anybody tested it? I guess adaptor on adaptor may have problems with the communications.

Yes, I know. It's ok when not sitting on the ocular. But when it sits there, it just falls off too easily. I think it it a great idea, just too weak magnet and hence a bit…[Read more]
Thank you for the shots of the lens. Looks more compact than I expected it to be. Any sample image you could paste? I am waiting for the lens for a while and I am quite curious to see whether it was worth the waiting.
Best regards, Alejandro

In fact, this link shows that the latest release candidate for LR4 includes profiles for S lens that haven't even been released yet.
Mark, looking at the link…[Read more]

very glad you have one as well.
I totally agree with your view: now there is finally a travel solution without much compromise. Couple it with a 180 and you have a nice allround kit.
The “readiness of the S for M9 type situations” was also one of my biggest concerns, but I have to say that it is performing better than anticipated.
Even at ISO 1600 one should not get scared off by the view at the rear screen. In reality the file looks much better than the screen suggests.
But certainly no replacement for a M9/Noctilux…[Read more]
Enclosed are two more pictures that may help illustrate the “high” ISO performance of the new S. No changes done to the file except cropping the JPGs a bit.
70 CS f2.5 ISO 100 @1/3s, ISO 1600 @1/30s
Not intended to do a “nice” shot, just to show the camera performance. Also to get you some DNGs to play with – for those who like doing…[Read more]
Here is the DNG to the “Hi-Liter” picture. Hope it works.
As I thought speed is more important than posting “nice” pictures: Here is one of the first pictures taken by me with the “new S” and the 30-90. Thought people will be interested in noise behavior. ISO 1600, 1/30s, f5.6@90mm, just anything I found on my desk after sticking the lense for the first time to the body… no editing, nothing, just the…[Read more]
Today I got my S together with the 30-90. Although already used to a Nikon D4, I have to say that the weight of the 30-90 is something different…
I will post a few pictures as soon as I had the time (and wheather :p) to do a few proper ones.
