Voigtlander 25mm f4p and M246

Discussion in 'Leica and Rangefinders' started by aaron_ng|1, Nov 17, 2017.

  1. 1) I would like to ask what lens profile I should use for Voigtlander 25mm f4P (M-mount) for M246?

    I just got this lens. Took it for a spin. I set the profile at 24 f2/8 11878/11898 and got very poor IQ. Certain part of the pictures are fuzzy, with quite heavy shading on both sides.

    I set Lr's lens correction at Voigtlander 25mm f4 but the shading over-corrected.

    2) Does a LH-1 lens hood work better than the little round one that comes with the lens?

    Thanks for your replies.
     
  2. You might check rangefinderforum.com. They're much more active re Leica stuff.
     
  3. I'd try the Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M (6-bit code = XXOOXO). It's the nearest to the CV as to the largest aperture.
     
  4. Hello,
    I have put a 25mm/F:4 Voigtlander lens on my 262, which is, without video, the same sensor as the LeicaM240;
    At first I had terrible results in fringing and magenta issues.
    Then I set the profile at :28mm/F:2.8 ASPh and BINGO!
    I am getting great pictures (probably a compromise between the 25 and 28mm frame), no fringing, almost no magenta issues.
    Try it and see !
    Best

  5. Thanks. This is useful information. I may use my CV 25/4 on the M240 soon.
