None. Only R-mount are film SLRs -the Leica R cameras.

DMR only then for native R glass ... otherwise digital Leica is relegated to M bodies only, adapting R glass if one so desires, correct?

Rusty,

The DMR replaced the film back and was usable only for the R8 and R9 cameras. At one point there was plan to make an R10 but that project was cancelled. The same was true of an AF camera that was to be released with a new set of AF lenses that would also accept and work with the R lenses.

After a whole week of staying away from FM forum and hoping to post new shots with Sony A7R (still waiting for it!) I had to like what I have, trusty D800E. Oh well

Weather in Vancouver cleared up a bit so here are few takes from grungy alleys of Vancouver Chinatown area. All shots with at f/2.8

Just to make it absolutely clear: the Rmount will fit on any digital body with the right adapter, not just on the M. The adapters are readily available, but a few of the lenses have parts sticking too far in. Manual focus. Also manual apertures, so the distictions "ROM" , 3cam etc. versions have no significance in a metering context.

+1 @ Leica R on most anything else due to the longer registration of R mount glass.

I just was beginning to wonder about Leica sensor/algorithm ... having recently learned of their relationship to Kodak @ sensor design. Recognizing the two pieces of the puzzle @ glass + sensor/algorithm I was just wondering what Leica had for options on the sensor/algorithm side of the equation.

With my SLR/C getting a bit long in the tooth @ "only" 14MP, a recent appreciation for seeing some M9 vs. A7R images caught my attention regarding what I might be perceiving as a philosophical approach difference between Sony and Leica. Much of Leica is really out of my league at this juncture, but educating oneself to the options, you just never know. My appreciation for Leica from an engineering/optical design approach is starting to wax a bit since some diff's were recently noted.

I just figured it was time for a bit more education into what native Leica bodies had to offer.

Got to shoot most of the weekend with the Leica's, enough so, that she(my wife) finally told me to detach my camera from me, or she was going to do it for me!! OUCH!
Really, really liking the subtlety and character with which these lenses portray! I'm hooked! I swear that in PP, these lenses hold more detail, and for some reason, when I go to boost shadows, there really isn't much "boosting" taking place...as if the shadows are just, lighter, than say a Zeiss, where I would ALWAYS have to boost shadows, to pull more detail....

And here are a few shots of the same subject, from different perspectives, with 3 different lenses...granted the positioning did change, 'cause I would change lenses, then come back to this subject, at various times. The 90 Elmarit, agsolutely blows me AWAY...what a incredible lens!!
Thanks for looking,
Gregg

I received my 19R f2.8 yesterday and I have to tell you guys - this lens is incredible!
I'm still waiting for my A7R, but on NEX-6, it's simply out of this world. Never seen a wide lens drawing like that,
including the Zeiss 21mm which I owned for a long time... And it's razor sharp wide open.
It's expensive, but if you find a good deal, don't hesitate.

Looks like Nelly has had a blue rinse, Gregg. Touch of Topaz in the street scene, LZ? The umbrella looks a little magenta to me - bit like the old Leica M8 issue. Nice pic though.

Thanks to Zhangyue/Michael for the heads up on the 21-35, I picked one up a few weeks ago and used it on a recent trip to Scotland, I can't disagree with any of his thoughts on the 21-35 performance and his comment on the 16-9 tests are spot on, so thank you.

I've avoided this thread till now ... only having one Leica R lens (90/2.8 Emarit) and a beer budget, I didn't want to sample too much champagne.

Quick question:
What digital cameras (any age/MP) have native mounts for using with R glass?



Leica R8 or R9 with DMR module. U can get perfect sensor by colours (10mp and 1,37x crop)

P.S. Sorry, was answered before
