I have VARIO-APO-ELMARIT-R 1:2.8/70-180mm, 11279. The manual states that camera can be used with APO-EXTENDER-R 2x 11262, so I would presume that newer 11269 would work as well. What does not work is Leica APO-Extender-R 1.4x 11249 - physically protruding back assembly does not allow you to mate them together.

Was bird watching this morning, when one of the legs of my bogen tripod collapsed, resulting in my Leica APO-TELEVID 77 breaking in half(literally). I'm the original owner, does Leica's passport warranty...


If you registered the warranty, it may be covered. You'll need to give Leica a call. They will want the Ser. number of the scope when you call.
You can reach them at 1-800-222-0118.
Good luck.

There is moisture trapped between the lenses. I took eye piece off to let air in but it didn't help. The moisture is actually trapped between the two pieces of glass in lense.


Hi Rebecca,
This is something that Leica will need to repair for you, as they are the only ones who have the tooling and parts to get inside of your scope. If you are in North America, you can contact them at 1-800-222-0118. Seeing as how the scope is supposed to be waterproof and nitrogen purged, I would suspect that any repair service is covered under your scope's lifetime warranty.
Best Regards,
Ben

Canon Extender EF 2x II


There are 2 Canon fittings, EF for all EOS cameras and EF-S for 'crop' cameras. The Canon extender does not fit crop cameras. Whichever make you look at, make sure it will fit the type of mount you have.
If you have not yet bought your lens of choice, Sigma are good and do their own extender compatible with their own lenses but not Canon's. This may be a good option for you

While focusing at f/8-22, the ring "catches" or snags" on something, internal (mechanical in nature) momentarilythen continues. It sounds "mechanical, metallic"


sounds llike the small bearings in the ring over riding and snagging
Try usng a compressor from the local garage to blow around the mechanism to remove any dirt that may be under the ring. This can cause "sticky bearings

Thanks for using fixya

I can't say whether your specific camera / lens combination will work, but bear in mind all teleconverters result in some loss of image sharpness (especially 2X models.) You will also lose about 2 stops of light.

Sigh... There's just no real alternative for big, fast glass :-)

E-330 choice of lenses


Hi Fredher,

Your wife has many lens choices for her camera.
Her camera is called the Four Third Camera.
You can use lenses made by Leica, Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma.
Also, can use older OM lenses for the Four Third, but you will need an adapter for it. Adapter can be purchased from Olympus.

Leica, Olympus and Panasonic make Four Third Cameras and lenses.

Sigma makes lenses for Four Third, too. .
You just have to tell them that you have a Four Third camera.

Try to sell that 40-150 lenses. Then buy the 50-200/2.8-3.5 SWD. If you got the money, buy the 90-250/2.8 from Olympus.
This will give you the reach for sports without getting run over.

50-200 is equal to 100-400mm
90-250 is equal to 180-500mm.

Just to get a 500mm/F2.8 on a 35mm camera will hit you over $12,000.00 USD.

If cost is a factor, then buy the Sigma APO 70-200/2.8 II EX DG Marco HSM.

70-200 = 140 to 400mm

To get a 400/2.8 will cost you $9,000.00 on a 35mm camera.

All lenses above all made for the working pros.

Hope they are helpful.
