Cool stuff, indeed.
One note on the Leica 120mm APO: you are absolutely correct about the retraction of the lens at infinity. This can also pose an issue when using a 4″ filter carrier. Our workaround is a simple, inexpensive and low-tech one. We took a cheap 72mm UV filter and knocked the glass out of it,…
I just do not understand why I missed this combination earlier. It is perfect for macro work (and is actually how I have my DSLRs set up). I really do not understand why I assumed that the back button would not override setting MF in camera — ddoooh!
Anyway, a smart sand lizard from today using this method.

Regarding autofocus, my initial procedure with primes has been to keep the camera on manual focus and have the rear button set for auto focus. That way, I push the rear button to bring it into focus and release it. Then I can recompose as I wish, with no seeking issues.
Since getting the Zoom, I have…

Anybody found a smart way of attaching it to the camera so that it does not disappear? Yes, there is a solution called “pocket”, I know, but the problem…
What new grip? I can confirm that my old one works well on the S … So logic says that the opposite should be true.
Where are you in Switzerland? If close to Basel, you are welcome to try my old grip.

Josh Lehrer;4043 wrote: Very nice Joe! I am glad you were able to make use of the +0.5 EV technique. While the S puts out a great file from the camera, there is a lot of “potential” in the files that can be brought out with a combination of tone adjustment, sharpening, and noise reduction (for higher ISOs) within Lightroom 4. I have found that the…
I am not sure if I am being exceptionally stupid here, but it seems to me that Leica have completely changed the LEMO connection so that the old remote release for the S2 (and the custom cables I have for wireless) simply do not fit. The change is from the old red dot five pin to a new six pin layout. Can you confirm this and also if you…[Read more]

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…[Read more]
There are some very cool cables in the box. No more custom cables for Pocket Wizards and wireless remote. Hassy adaptor seems a bit more reliable too.
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 cannot.
Nice gallery. Your work looks ideal for MF and the S2 to me. Big animals that you would not be needing 600 mm + for on a 35 mm are what the S system is for. It will never be a platform for birding though …. it is surprisingly good for insect macro in the field.
