Leica S CS in Solm told me it would work. Cheers.

Thanks for your post. Good to know. Leica CH says the new grip won’t work on the S2, but can’t (or won’t) explain why. Fact is the new one is 730 CHF and the old one 1250 CHF. I will bring my S2 to the shop and will try here in Zurich. Nothing else to…
Hi all, just an update.
My H to S adaptor and S2-P were back from Solm, and Solm has replaced a new adaptor for me. Now the focus confirmation indicator works perfectly! I also found out the lens firmware has be updated. When mounting on my HC lenses, the lens firmware version is 1.34.xxxx. I remember the version wasn’t so update before…[Read more]
Just an update, my s2-p was back from Solm. Solm checked everything and found everything is perfect, but did a full cleaning, adjustment for me, for FREE! My warranty will be expired in May, so I am so happy for this, esp. cleaning the CCD for free. :p
I now 90% sure my issue was due to the Sandisk Extreme 45mb/s, after my friend and I change…[Read more]

I got the Transcend 16GB wifi SD tonight and everything works perfect. It’s able to use with my ipad and iphone. Just the…[Read more]

Per a CF card, it is compatible with a UDMA6 card but not the newer UDMA7 cards. That’s one of the advantages that the new Leica S has, full compatibility with the latest 1000x UDMA7 CF cards. I’m getting…
Josh Lehrer;4239 wrote: The Leica S2 does not support SDXC or UHS memory cards, this is most likely your problem. You need to use an SDHC card, which comes in sizes of 32GB or smaller. You cannot use an SD card larger than 32GB in the S2 or S2-P. I would recommend Transcend Class 10 32gb SDHC cards, that is what I have used for a number of years…

I generally rely on auto focus, but Yes, in testing with the 50-110 just now, I do get proper focus confirmation with a dot (and audible signal) on manual focus as well as with AFs (manual shows arrows and dot properly).
Also, EXIF data is actually accurate for the fixed focal length lenses.…

Thanks for the input. I have no issue to use the 100/2.2 too. Just focus confirmation light not…[Read more]
My lens has loud clicking sound when firing the leaf shutter too, and it has more obvious delay than focal plane shutter. 🙁
BTW, may I ask if all of you have the same issue as I have experienced?
Many thanks first!
I have visited the local Leica service centre with my S2 and S to H adaptor, there was a S2 and another adaptor, and the product manager and I have tried both adaptors on each S2.
The focus confirmation issue were the same, only > appear no matter which direction we turned the focusing ring, and no dot lit up while focus was hit.…[Read more]
I didn’t pick up my M6 for a few months too. I actually sold almost all lenses, only keep the 40/2 and a vintage Sonnar 5cm f1.5 LTM. Mainly because I was mainly using my Pentax 67ii 99% of time.
However, after I got my S2, I sold my 67ii in 2 weeks. I finally found a digital camera I can trust and produce the result I want. (I was and still…[Read more]
I really wish there will be an adaptor for Contax 645 to S. I just sold my Contax 645 again (twice in 3 years…too heavy and bulky to me..), but I love the 80/2 a lot. The dim focusing screen was hard to use manual lenses, I almost bought a DB for it, but after tried my friend’s Leaf Aptus 75 on it, I gave it up, the battery was also an main…[Read more]

I would have the adapter replaced, and see if you still are having trouble. Normally, the S-Adapter-H works with the S2 just like the S lenses, meaning you have focus confirmation and full functionality of exposure…
Just an upate, I have just discovered another issue.
It has happened twice today that my S2 won’t fire suddenly, but it was working again when I unmount the lens and release the shutter, or with other manual lenses. Also restart the camera won’t help, I had to unmount the lens and remount again to make it working.
I think the adaptor is…[Read more]
