A lovely collection of glass, Richard. I assume you use most of these lenses off a tripod (the larger/heavier one)?
Thank you. This is only a small portion of my Leica R lenses. I have 16 lenses all told. As to usage, it all depends on what I am doing. I do a lot of work on a tripod due to the nature of what I photograph including consistency for composition and bracketing. For the shorter focal length lenses in the 21mm to the 60mm or so, I do a lot of hand holding of the lenses. But again, it depends on what I am doing and shooting. If you look at my Facebook photo page and can access it below, you will see why; I do a lot of landscape and nature work and have come from shooting large format down to 35mm:
Also, if you are wondering about the largest lens in the image on the previous page, it is my Leica 280mm f4 Apo Telyt. My even larger Leica 280mm f2.8 Apo Telyt and Leica 560mm f5.6 Telyt lens which are not in the photo and are also used for wildlife and landscape work are always supported either grip (almost never), monopod, or usually tripod.
