images, finally! thanks!
I’ve experimented and found that if I fit the Grip, I can hand hold for 2 stops longer in the portrait mode.
This is my finding too! I can’t use the S2 without the grip properly. But i do mostly portraits anyway.
For those of you using or just trying this lens, pay attention to where you are holding the…

what is the shutter-replacement programm? did I miss something?
If you own the pocketwizzards it may also be an idea to adjust the synctimes manually. maybe they open to late or close to early, this can be set manually to adjust it to the needs of the camera
this is an old complaint about this lens, in fact I suggested a focus limiter allready one week after I had it. It is one reason why I don’t use this lens anymore for portrait work.
Instead, I use the Hasselblad 100/2.2 and the 150/3.5 with the HC-adapter, and they are great lenses for the S.
My wish is that one day they will make…[Read more]
well, what was the question?
If you want to spend another 15 k or so for a second camera body? Or for one alone, giving away the S2P?
Personally i don’t think a new S3 will bring much improvement, if it is only a new sensor and nothing more baluable. So there will some bodies come to the market in the 5-7 k range, as now,…[Read more]
I use the Elpro for Portraits, and it is amazing! But the dof is very very small and the usable focus range is very limited, so that it cannot be used in a shooting with other things than portraits.
Also, I have an issue when screwing off the Elpro, sometimes it is as glued to the lens.
Nevertheless I can really recomend it if you have…[Read more]
people think it’s the same as the LX7 but there are subtle differences. At least in jpg-files.
Nevertheless, I use the D-Lux 6 very often and for most family oriented photos it is a lovely camera, also for some other stuff like quick macros for selling something etc.
I even got the new RAW D-Liux6 which a lot of people say that it is…[Read more]
Stephan, I really like the look of these images too. Care to share your secret sauce and tell us how you arrived at these colors and contrast?
nothing much to say about that 🙂
I do almost all my processing in LR. Depending on the subject (mood, tonality) I choose either a custom preset or modify an existing preset to my taste. It is…[Read more]
I think the HC100 is a great addition (and you get automaticall “CS” with it) to the S-Lenses, and as the sensor of the S is a bit smaller you get the best out of the lens.
HC 100/2.2 and S 180 with Elpro
Sorry for the strong postprocessing but I don’t like to show my work without it (looks so unfinished)
Lovely portrait with great catchlights in the eyes,I have this lens on order,what is the AF speed like?I have the S120 but it hunts a little too much for fast portrait work…(pity Leica didn’t add a focus limiter to it)
I fully agree with you, the fact that Leica ommited to use a focus-limiter makes the 120 almost unusable for fashion and…[Read more]
you can search the net for DOF calculators that take in account the sensor size and make the calculation for each lens. Unfortunately, the S-sensor is rarely covered, so this search is not easy. There are more calculators – apps, so probably the search there will be more easy (still keep in mind that you need a calculator that covers the S-sensor…[Read more]
I think I remember having read somewhere that the Hasselblad adapter is also quite tight, but that it does click in place.
yes it is extremely tight and the button is so small that a klick is almost not noticable. But no problems so far with the Hasselblad adapter
Preliminary testing indicates that the scratch does not show up on photos, which is pretty incredible. But, every time I use this lens, which is frequent, and look at that scratch, I will feel sick. I am going to start searching online for a replacement. Several people have already expressed interest in buying this lens, though no price has been…

yes, last ones are really great!
it is always difficult to give an advice without knowing for what a lens would be used.
If you make makro, well, then the choice is simple. For fashion and portrait I prefer the 180, but you will need light for short shutter speeds, or flash or CS or both. I prefer the rendering and bokeh of the 180 (didn’t test the Elpro thoug, as I’m…[Read more]
