    Yes, I know it is supposed to only work on TTL-HSS … and that is the way it worked before.

    Suddenly, TTL-HSS is not available at all in the SF58 selection menu, but TTL is there … then, the camera and flash will fire in just TTL up to 1/4000 in CS mode and up to 1/125 in FP mod…

    David Farkas;6166 wrote: Interesting approach. I’m trying to think about how this could be implemented without creating a possible stumbling block. Imagine you pick up the camera, forget to change the focus zone and end up either thinking the lens is broken or missing a shot because you were fumbling with the menus.

    Any thoughts?

When you add the macro to the H body the A.F settings shows a new setting which is exclusive to this lens,that is the ability the choose from near scan,full scan or infinity scan.

    David and Josh, may be you guys can let Leica know my simple (firmware) feature request:
    With S lens most times I need to get handheld speed of at least 1/2f instead of 1/f. In aperture priority + auto ISO mode, the S supports setting minimum shutter speed of 1/f or a manual…[Read more]

  • melantye replied to the topic SDXC card issue? in the forum Leica S 6 years, 2 months ago

    Ok SDXC card issue resolved, thanks to Alex AR’s post

    (1) Do not format SDXC card in Leica S since out of factory they’re ExFat format
    (2) Instead, format SDXC card in PC/Mac first into MS-DOS(FAT) format.
    (3) Then format the card in Leica S again just to make sure

    Happily now the card works in S.

  • Looking forward to the review David! Also if possible, please share with us how you’d like to process the files from MM.

    I think David mentioned sometime ago that it’s not a priority with Leica currently. I guess to achieve the new increments they need precise calibration at each ISO level.

    They can add that BW mode with the CS switch, that way does not change the form factor or add any unnecessary buttons 😀

    Very impressive news on the CS lenses!
