Close-up Mod - Leica Summicron 50mm F2 Rigid with a MFD of 0.75m

Close-up Mod - Leica Summicron 50mm F2 Rigid with a MFD of 0.75m
@yukosteel has recently published a new disassembly article focusing on modifying the Leica Summicron 50mm F2 "Rigid" lens to reduce its minimum focusing distance from 1m (3.3 feet) to 0.75m. This lens is one of my favorites due to its exceptional performance and unique rendering. However, a common issue with this lens is its limited focusing range of only 1m. Yuri tackled this challenge by reducing the minimum focus distance to 0.75m, greatly enhancing the lens's versatility.

Official: Leica M11-P announced
Update: Both Leica M11-P in Black and Silver are in stock at B&H Photo right now:

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?q=Leica%20M11-P

----------------------


The Leica M11-P camera that was previously rumored has been officially introduced, along with a brand-new Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH lens. What's remarkable about the M11-P is that it's the first camera globally to have technology that follows both the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) and the C2PA standard.

Improvements for the M11-P include:

1. Taking off the red dot Leica logo from the camera's front.
2. Adding an engraved Leica script on the top cover.
3. Installing a dark chrome viewfinder.
4. Using sapphire glass on the rear display to make it more durable and resistant to scratches.
5. Increasing the internal storage to 256GB, a boost from the previous 64GB.

The M11-P is offered in Black (Aluminum top) and Silver (Brass top)
Aside from these specifications, there's a hardware modification involving the inclusion of a secure chip. This chip is responsible for activating the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) technology we discussed earlier.

Official: Nikon announced NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena lens

Official: Nikon announced NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena lens
The NIKKOR Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena is a prime lens known for its exceptional brightness. Its name, derived from Latin, signifies a state of complete spatial fullness. This lens aims to excel in light capture, producing pleasing background blur (bokeh), and delivering sharpness from corner to corner of the image.

Nikon meticulously crafted this lens to ensure consistent brightness across the entire frame. Its 11-blade diaphragm and substantial rear glass element contribute to creating a circular bokeh effect and adding a three-dimensional quality to images. With its 135mm focal length and wide f/1.8 aperture, it allows for creating a shallow depth of field, enhancing your photography experience. Unlike the Noct lens, the Plena supports autofocus, but it lacks built-in vibration reduction (VR). This lens consists of 16 lens elements in 14 groups and has a weight of approximately 2.2 pounds or 995 grams.
