Hi Kevin,
Can the color of the customized text be specified by the buyer? Nothing fancy, say red instead of white for example.
Thanks.

I agree. Perhaps it's just this particular picture, but the chrome seems very close to the original, whereas the BP looks a bit "washed out".

Kevin: if that's not too much too ask, could we perhaps...

TTa and 7a indeed seem to be manufactured by the same company (DJ Optical).
Does anyone know if focus on the TTa 35/1.4 is user-adjustable, like on 7a lenses?

I'd be happy to take a black one (ideally paint, with red markings...:cool:) if/when they choose to make one. LTM or M is fine.

FWIW, paid 1,300 USD for mine 18 months ago (mint but no box, no case, etc). Prices have gone up a lot lately due to increase demand.
I wouldn't be surprised if about 2,000 USD is the current going...

+1 for Amedeo Muscelli's adapters.
Bought one recently for using old Nikon RF lenses on my M8/M9.
Beautifully made and works flawlessly. And it's not golden;)

Same here. Only slight issue may appear if you want to use it wide open in strong daylight with an ND filter, as the vignetting is somewhat increased at certain angles.

Yes, it will - but you may not get optimal image quality. Ideally, you'd want both UV/IR filter and coding. The in-camera correction is less important at 35mm than it is for wider lenses, but still...

Below links to a few sample images taken with the CV 21/4P, if you're interested (the vignetting was added in PP - the lens doesn't show much, particularly if you code it).
This lens is incredibly...

Yes, you need a finder for both. Due to the 1.3 crop factor on the M8, however, the CV15 finder may be used for the CV12. And you may get a CV21 finder for use with the CV15.

In the light of the pictures you posted, I'd agree that 75 or 90 may be too long. I'd also strongly suggest trying a 50mm.
But if you really want a longer Leica lens at a "moderate" ;) price, the 75...

With lens recognition turned on, a menu screen will pop up on the LCD indicating that the lens is recognized as a WATE. You should then select the 16mm option.
Hope this helps.
