Reader Comment: Guide to Leica

Brian N writes:

I have done a brief look at a few articles in Guide to Leica and I am delighted that I decided to subscribe.

Even though I have purchased most Leica M lenses I want over the past year (before my Leica M finally came in January 2014, I discovered that there is extremely valuable information on the lenses to hasten my learning curve in using them

I am an advanced skill photographer and was pessimistic on the value but was impressed at the value your articles will save me on testing and using the lenses and camera. I also just purchased the Sony A7R in December to get my equipment weight from a Sony A900 full frame system down. I love the joy of returning to Leica since my M4-P days and to manual focus.

How I found you was while doing some research on the Leica 100 f/28 Apo-Macro Elmarit R lens to use on my Sony A7R. I have not purchase yet. I was wondering what you think about buying the Leica Apo R extender 2x for it. I like the idea of having a longer working distance of a 200mm f/5.6 lens and this would be a compact option. I would use this on a tripod. I am fanatic on sharpness though but still reasonable on not expecting full 100mm sharpness.

DIGLLOYD: my goal with all my publications is not so much reviewing lenses and cameras (that is certainly a baseline prerequisite) but whenever possible to add how-to and usage tips that accelerate the learning process for obtaining the best results.

Beware of shutter vibration with the Sony A7R, particularly for larger and longer lenses and especially with a lens tripod foot which makes the vibration even worse.

As for a 200/5.6 combo, it will be just as awkward if not more so than the 180/2.8 APO-Elmarit-R, and much harder to focus.
