View Full Version : Cle & 50mm
Hi, recently got a mint cle, great little tool!
Please the experts tell me about using 50 mm lenses on this camera.
Any technique or tips to use 40 mm framelines?
Happy new year!
On my CLE, the VC 50/2.5 with a 50/75 adapter brings up both the 28 and 40 mm frames. If you can imagine the 50 using the center 80% of the 40 mm frame, you'll be about right. Seems practical enough.
Though I rarely use the 50 on the CLE, it does make a nice compact package.
Learning to shoot the 35/2.5 using the 40mm frames was pretty easy for me. Experience using the 50 consistently will make you better.
If you can imagine the 50 using the center 80% of the 40 mm frame, you'll be about right.
I totally agree with that. That's how I used a Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM on a Minolta CLE for this portrait :
Hi, not sure concerning your quesiton but I have a similar one (so sorry if I'm hijacking your thread).
I'm considering pick up a Canon 50mm 1.2 screw mount and wanted to find out if it's too bit (IE interferes) with the rangefinder on a CLE.
It goes on the Leica CL with no problem of focusing. The CLE is a bit bigger. Hope this helps.
