    Coming back to Leica

    Go to post #32 - posted a link to a toolcut kit that has severed very well with both Leica and Voigtlander. I also used it to replace a battery in my Dell laptop! Well with the money don

    Interesting that Leica uses philipshead while VM uses flathead.

    Coming back to Leica

    I decide to send my Tri-Elmar 28-35-50 in to have it coded. I began the conversation with Leica on April 9, getting confirmation of receipt on April 19. I received information that the lens was being sent to the factory on April 22. I also received an estimate for the work requested around this...

    Coming back to Leica

    I keep forgetting to mention this. I have a Lowa 15mm and Mitakon Speedmaster 90mm both of which have the slots milled into the flanges for 6-bit coding.

    Coming back to Leica

    I will not lie, yesterday was brutal however today is much much better. It might be that I now have 8-lenses for my M11 with 4 of them Leica. Went down the rabbit hole this morning and ordered a new 75mm Summicron from the Leica store in SFO (they had one new in stock). It's funny when you...

    Coming back to Leica

    Buffalo seems like a lifetime ago! Not to be overly graphic, I went in the hospital mid Nov for a blockage and a couple days later they removed the colon in my right side (I kept my appendix). I remember the first time I turned on the right side and felt stuff move into the void! :). Was told...

    Coming back to Leica

    I've replaced the 135 myself which was easy. I should have the Voigtlander flanges Monday and hope to have them done as well. The 28-50 has been shipped to NJ where they will do it. I'll keep you posted.... Don Forgot to add that I had picked up a tool kit that while advertised for computers...

    Is it worth to get a 28mm lens from a new brand?

    I have a Voigtlander 28mm and am very pleased with it. This of course is from my very limited experience with it. My M11 lens herd (9 and counting) includes a mixture of Leica, Voigtlander, and a Mitakon. Back in 2010 when I got my first M9 I had Leica and 1 Mitakon. Truth be told I still have a...

    Coming back to Leica

    Been busy the past couple weeks with my Chemo treatments with little time for photos. I have been researching 6-bit coding and found a seller on e-bay that I now trust. Ordered a flange for the 135 that came properly coded for $39 plus shipping (Atlanta GA). Great communications and I found that...

    What am I doing wrong or missing?

    I've been using my newly coded lens for a couple of days. The one issue I've had is the coding on my 28-50 lens wore off and I've since redone it this time allowing the ink to thoroughly dry before mounting. Yes, I do have that spring and yes the coding shows which FL I used so win win.

    Coming back to Leica

    Quick update. The encoder arrived late yesterday. Started using it this morning. Interesting that the Lowa 15mm and 90 Speedmaster both have been milled so no need for the encoder. I coded the 28-35-50 and it works just as well ( I also found the tiny spring). The info changes with each change...

    It's a Nokton and I believe it's good.
