I want it for all Leica cameras.
I have not used either the 35 1.4 older model or the 28 2.0 for astrophotography. I don’t believe vignetting is an issue with the 21 but if that’s not your preferred field of view, go with a 35. You have also reduced your cost. What is the issue is what ISO works best on your Sony. If you are willing to shoot at say 3,200 you don’t need…[Read more]

I have had success with M10P files in LR but not M10M raw files. Any suggestions?
The l-camera forum predicts Adobe will correct this error with their next update in March.
- In reply to: mrosberg posted an update S 120mm Macro on the SL2. As a partial response to what I\'ve been reading I decided to add the Leica APO-MACRO-SUMMARIT-S 120mm F2.5. I was excited about a fast lens that I could use for portraiture and macro photography. I purchased a near mint condition lens with a \"replaced\"motor\" on eBay. Unfortunately I\'m struggling with its use. It\'s surprisingly noisy autofocus was concerning, but more importantly it\'s almost impossible to lock and focus with this lens. When attempting to use this lens with autofocus, it simply hunts and doesn\'t allow me to make an exposure. In fact, I needed to use it manually until focus was close and then use the back button. Am I missing something? View
Yes they are a bit noisy as there is quite a distance the elements are moving, but very noisy if you don’t truly have a replaced motor gearing. The claim of a replaced motor on an eBay listing would be suspect unless they provided proof. The fact that it focuses at all suggests that it is working for now.
Your approach to focus manually and t…[Read more]
Well, I used the 007 at ISO 3,200 again, but the reason was I needed it to be able to use motion capturing of water at 1/400 sec f8 in this Triptych set.
Three separate shots that were then printed on 40″x60″ metal panels
This was shot with an S 007 through a window with a 24mm S lens.
This is the first time I've seen a full rainbow where the interior of the arc is a totally different brightness from the sky outside the rainbow arc.
This was shot with my M10M using a demo 90mm Macro Elmar.
Sun was coming through the clouds hitting some structures but not others. The skyline is St. Louis. The Arch is visible, but not lit by the sun.
f8 at 1/1500. ISO auto which turned out to be 160. Underexposed compensation set by .7. Cropped slightly, no filter. I usually have auto…[Read more]
I returned to the scene using three new bits of technology.
!. An M10M which allows for very high ISO and high resolution.
2. Remote firing of the M10M via LeicaFOTOS, and allows a self portrait if you look very closely.
3. A 12mm lens. The shot is ISO 20,000, f4.0. 1/15

Thank you. You wrote an extremely thoughtful and detailed explanation of the S lens system. You included some outstanding images too. It was fun to recognize the ones from the S2 autumn trip a few years ago. You brought back excellent memories.

Your B&W work is lovely. You deserve a M10M.
Your writing is excellent and much appreciated.

Excellent as usual.
Your YouTube videos were helpful. When I saw how high you were shooting in ISO I was surprised. Setting Auto ISO was the answer, and a good procedure.
