Great point of view and I love the colors in the sky.

Thank you Gene. I had fun adding people in the image (a blend of five shots to maximize the number of skaters).

David, what size did you share that image? I ask because it looks bigger than 1024 on the long end. I tried to upload mine at 1600 and it failed.

Yeah, it's 1280 long end - largest size allowable on this forum. Lately I've been uploading two versions of my photos on Flickr: one publicly viewable at 2048px, and the other at 1280px only viewable by me (on Flickr). That's the one I use for posting here on POTN.

Ah thank you. That explains it. On FM, I'm able to use 1600px which looks great. I will try 1280px here.

leica M to E mount adapter that can autofocus. Basically an autofocus anything adapter as long as you can adapt to leica M. Lenses like the CV 40 would mount direct to the adapter and would able to AF right off the bat, same with your lux if you still have it. Older vintage lenses would simply need to adapt to leica M mount to have AF ability. The adapter has fake aperture readings and needs to be set to F2 all the time to trick the system. Set it to F11 - f32 to select whatever focal length you assign. For instance, I have F25 assigned to 24mm, F20 assigned to 200mm, and F16 assigned to 15mm, F18 assigned to 85mm..... I know it's all over the place, but there's some reasoning for the assigned numbers, related focal lengths. So if I mount the 85, I go to F18, take a snap, then go back to F2. My exif will show 85mm and IBIS works automatically for 85mm. Pretty darn cool. I have adapters for Nikon, Olympus, and Canon EF.

Yeah, got it. I knew of it when it came out and was interested. I was just not familiar with what TAP should be lol. So it seems some of you tried it? Does it work good?

Hi David

I've been using the TAP for a couple of months now and I've been very happy with it so far. I still have a fair amount of M-mount glass as well as LTM glass so I was curious about the ability of the TAP when used specifically with those lenses. It works really well with the Zeiss ZM 35 1.4, Zeiss C Sonnar 50 1.5, Zeiss ZM 85 and the Leica 90M summicron and Voigtlander glass. It tends to work best with mid-range glass, when you get into the longer focal lengths you may need to manueally 'pre-focus" the lens before engaging the AF. I've also tested it with with a number of manually legacy lenses and they work well.

Charlie has pointed out some of the annoyances with it already, L-bracket mounting, battery drain bug, etc. Overall it's pretty amazing technology, I'll probably be picking up a second one as a backup for when I travel.

there are nikon autofocus adapters, but they don't work lenses that are screw driven.

and very very careful, there are reports that they break cameras.

ever heard of this Sony patent?

Can you image if sony would add this tech into A9 or what ever next camera would be?

Basically TAP like tech inside the camera body, moving sensor back and forward.

Yeah, my main concern was how it would behave with a lens with shallow DOF like my leica 50 1.4 summilux. But since you tried it with several fast lenses id say it is wel worth the money isnt it? Thanks for your report :)
