Voe

that is an absolute briillant shot... sky is wonderful and the lighting in the foreground and fence is super.

Do you need a fourwheeler to get to Craigs Hut as I am off to Mansfield area later this month

Cheers

Thanks Neil. Yes, you definitely need a 4WD to get there as the road is really coarse, narrow and quite long. Actually I went there with knumbnutz (Neil) on one of the weekends.
On that day it was very cloudy and there was just this time interval of less than a minute when the sun light lit the house and it is when I got this shot. I think it was worth the drive

I bought one of those adapters from ebay and there are no issues except that it takes some fiddling to mount it on the camera. Apart from that it works as leitax.
Hi, please what do you mean "..some fiddling to mount it on the camera"? I found this one which looks pretty well manufactured:

Adapter for Leica R lens To Pentax P/K PK K10D K20D K-x - eBay (item 330417809928 end time May-25-10 02:49:28 PDT)

Do you think there is nothing to worry about buying this cheaper one? They look very similar so mounting on the lens should be also like leitax.

EDIT: There is also 5 holes on leitax one and 6 holes on the china one. On Leitax site there is written that the sixth one would interfere with the locking pin at the camera mount. Can someone
confirm that?

With fiddling I meant that you need to move the lens in and out a little bit while screwing it into the camera. I now see that it's caused by the locking pin of the camera, which locks into the 6th hole. The solution is easy. All you have to do is keep it pressed while mounting/screwing the lens into the camera. I have the Leitax mount on my summicron and made in China one on my 28mm Elmarit and if I were you I would go with the made in China one as it is much cheaper and it's not such a big issue to keep the locking button presses.

I really shouldn't have look into this thread at all.

Amazing images indeed.
If I eventually get the funds ... I might actually look into these lenses.

Voe ... I have a different perspective of Craig's Hut framed on one of my walls ... mind you I ddin't take the image myself though.

Thank you Voe, Id buy a china one its really much cheaper (on leitax prices is +16%VAT for EU customers). When you talk about that 6.th hole you have screws in all six holes? Is it right? Did you put some silicon grease under that ball that is recommended on leitax? Thx. Mark.

Yes there are screws in all the 6 holes (originally lens has 6 screws/holes). Instead of silicon I put white lithium grease (never wears or melts or leaks) where the ball is. Originally it had some regular grease, I believe what I did works better and for longer.

Summilux 50 f1.4 with a Chinese version of the Leitax. One problem is I'm not getting infinity focus but the upside is I'm getting a lens allowing closer focussing. Stuff I've removed are the cams with shims, the mount and that inner black section on the mount, so everything before the aperture mechanism. I suppose I'll have to email those Leitax folk to see if anything else is in need of removing to get infinity focus.
Anyway some flower pics courtesy of the Summilux.
