Great review David! Seems like a lens worth having.

This is subscription only but great source of info and the ISO 3200 looks veery good,I expect the new S to be as good http://digll…

Its also supposed to have a new Auto focus system which sounds interesting…
Either way I’m happy enough with my S and have a 30-90 on order which is my…

Tried turning the camera on/off, taking the battery…
Similar to Jack and others, using the back button to set focus and recompose works well and fast (I use the same technique on my Nikon and it is faster than moving the focus cross hairs for me). Have not had any issues with the focus. Picking a good contrast area helps.
Arif replied to the topic Florenz with new LEICA S and ELMARIT S 30 2,8f ASPH in the forum S Lenses 5 years, 9 months ago
I like them as well. Good effort to try new things and a mix of the old.
Sorry to hear that Marc, I had a similar problem and Eric Chan helped me out. Please take a look to salvage the existing files.

Mark, a lovely image. Must be even great in a large print.

I have not had the chance yet except the first test done on a dull day.. I love the feel of this Lens with smooth zoom, balance and weight.
The results are superb and with 30mm just 1/2 stop over the fixed one the difference is not noticeable at full 100% on my Mac.
I used 320 ISO f9.5/180. there is no sign of Moire…

I’ll post some that are “fair” to the camera. Most of what I have to date at ISO 1600 is with the Hassy 120 and I was a little too quick in stating that the adaptor worked better with the S. There is still an issue of recognising the lens.
Attached are some comparisons with the 30 mm S. Not world shattering…

The new menu system seems reasonably clean.
ISO 1600 seems useable …. Maybe D800-like noise?
Old peeve STILL here … I want to choose the priority CF/SD but…

The Hasselblad H lenses get along with the S2’s sensor quite nicely.
The HC50/3.5-II, 100/2.2, and 150/3.2N are a particularly nice set of lenses to use with the Leica … dual shutter capable, good handling size for the S2, and all use the same 77mm filter size.
Great to…[Read more]

Arif, if you can share any images taken with the zoom it would be appreciated. If I go down this road that one is on my short list.
Hi David, A simple portrait with no retouching other than simple ACR but not sure if it really shows all what the lens can offer. Portrait with the 100.
