  1. There is a new lens in town. This design variant of the Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. features a matte black finish and light green engravings. It has an integrated lens hood which extends via quick twist. The EU price is €4,300.00, just 50 euros more than the regular black anodized version. More information: https://leica-camera.com/en-int/photography/lenses/m/summicron-m-28-f2-asph-matt-black-paint-finish
  2. Hi, does somebody own a Leica Summicron-M 1:2/28 Edition "Safari" or has seen real life pictures? I’d love to see additional pictures of the lens except the one official photography that’s spread all over the web.
  3. Hi all. Receiving my silver M11 (first-time M user). While I am figuring out what first Leica lens to buy, I would like to buy a couple Voigtlander lenses to get me started. What Voigtlander lenses do you recommend? I know it depends on many factors. Here is what I am looking for. 28mm (or 35mm), 50mm, and 70mm, in not particular order. I looked at the Cameraquest chart, but so confusing. Maybe start with 2lenses, 28mm and a 50mm. Thanks for the advice and feedback i know this is a Leica forum and hoping I don’t upset anyone asking this question here. 😊
  4. Hi everyone, I just got a used 28mm Summicron lens for my M6. To my surprise, the images came out slightly blurry and without the sharpness I would of expected? I also have a 35mm Leitz Summaron, which is my control lens and is indeed sharp. Yes, I develop and scan the film, and hadn't had this problem in the past. Any suggestions? Here's an image with my 28mm:
  5. Here is an interesting discussion on the 28mm vis-à-vis 35mm lens for documentary photography: Focal Length Feud: 28mm vs 35mm for Telling a story – by David Babaian and Simon King https://emulsive.org/articles/focal-length-feud-28-35 I have used both and at the end of the day it seems to me that either will work well, if you are willing to fine tune your shooting technique for each lens. Thoughts?
  6. Hello Everyone, I'm talking about one of my favourite focal lenght, 28 mm. I'm loving it for street for sure, but also for landscape. I really want to know if for landscape purpose there any appreciable difference betwenn 28 mm elmarit and 28 mm summicron. I mean, for landscape i usually shot at f 8 or something like that, I would like to shoot on m10, and the most important thing in this kind of photo for me is sharpness. Is the price difference worth ? Can anyone post some landscape photos taken with both lenses? Thank you all and have a nice day, Paolo
  7. Apologies if there are similar threads to this one - I haven't been able to find answers to my questions specifically. I recently sold my M3 since I'm looking for a body that accommodates wider lenses and has a hotshoe. I don't need a built in meter and am on a budget, so I wouldn't consider the M6. I also find the M5 too bulky, so this leaves the M4-2 and M4-P. I will mainly be shooting 28mm and 35mm lenses, so the M4-P seems ideal since it provides framelines for both. My first question is therefore whether the extra cost is warranted for 28mm framelines, or if I should opt for an M4-2 and use the entire viewfinder to approximate the 28mm focal length. Also, since there are few "user condition" examples of both models available online, I'm wondering how reliable the hotshoe is on these cameras - I use flash a lot and problems in this department would be a total dealbreaker for me. Would it make a tangible difference to opt for a late M4-P, or is it safe to assume that the hotshoe will function well in most cases regardless of model or year? My instincts tell me the M4-P is the ideal camera, but since there are a few M4-2's available for very attractive prices, I'm hoping someone can convince me otherwise!
  8. Hi guys, I own an M9 and a 28 cron and I absolutely love the images I am getting from this combo. However lately, I came across a 50 Pre-ASPH Lux on one of the websites for £1300 so I am very tempted to swap my Cron for the pre-asph lux to have a try particularly the focal length. (50 lux asph would be ideal but thats out of budget!) So, I have been searching around the forums and obviously cant find any direct comparison since they are not the same focal length to start with anyway. So I was wondering, how much sharper the Cron will be compared to the 50mm Pre-ASPH.( I am assuming it is sharper) Is it noticeable in daily photography?? If all I shoot is street and portraits normally viewed on iPad, MacbookPro and the max size I develop is around 5R. When I look back at photos that I deemed as 'keepers' when I was using Cron, most of them were taken at f2 or max f2.8. I feel as if that aperture gives me that magical image with perfect seperation but due to 28mm, Im always forced to take a more environmental approach. I am here to look for some advice and opinions and thank you all for your precious time. p.s. the online dealer is willing to make a direct swap for a 28Cron (very good cond) to a 50pre-asph lux (near mint). Is that an okay deal? how would you view the deal? Many thanks
  9. I am a new Leica M9 user and I bought my camera with a 50mm Summicron f/2. Doing a lot of travelling I felt last week in Chicago that I really need to go wide when shooting skylines, architecture and interiors (it was the art museum). In two weeks I will go to India and I really want something before that trip. I have been thinking of both the Super Elmar M 21mm and the Elmarit M 28mm ASPH and I am going back and forth between them. I am quite well aware of the positives and negatives of them but cannot make up my mind! What would be the recommendation from you using these lenses today in your daily photography and when traveling?
  10. Hi Folks, I have been disappointed with residual uncorrected color shifts in the corners of shots with my M9P and 28mm Elmarit ASPH and 24mm Elmar ASPH lenses (particularly snow scenes). The built in profiles of my camera don’t seem adequate for my samples of these lenses. Has anyone with the new Leica M worked with these lenses? If so, could you please post samples? Thanks, Steve K
  11. Hello All. I have a Summicron 28mm 2.0 Aspherical Lens. The model on the lens is "4068358" Does anyone have info about this specific version? Thanks, Michael
  12. Just wanted to share my first impressions of the mini 28mm f5.6 summaron lens: I wanted to get this lens for street photography ever since it came out and finally pulled the trigger. I was a little skeptical of its output having seen both good and bad shots on reviews with the lens, but wanted first hand experience and to finally scratch that 28mm daido moriyama itch. After the opening a nice black box and admiring this silver jewel for a moment in my hand, I quickly attached it to M10 and went searching for some test shots on a clear but cloudy day. I shoot my film M/A at f5.6 on bright sunny days so wasn’t worried by its lack of low light capabilities. The reverse position of the focusing tab takes some getting used to, really not very hard, and for closer subjects you need to take a step back than what is normal for other lenses, as you need more distance to bring things in focus. But from the moment I started snapping away I felt the same wonder and joy that you do with other Leica lenses. After an hour or so of taking photos this is what I noticed most: the center of this lens is very sharp but not in a clinical way; there is a smoothness to images; some shots do not produce vignetting but some do which, gives it the “classical” feel and really sets off objects in a cool way; its kind of an unpredictable lens which i like and comes down to personal preference; color accuracy was very good and no different than my 50mm summilux & 35mm summicron; the size of the lens is perfect for adding a 3rd lens to my small leather street bag. Overall, I’m very pleased with my decision to get this lens. Not only imbued with a piece of Leica history but also very capable of producing cool images in daylight conditions. I personally think this is one of those special lenses to own that captures unique qualities rather than the clinical kind you find everywhere else. Unlike, with other leica lenses where i expected images to be great, i was expecting this one to be less so, but was proven wrong. It really is a great little lens and has exceeded my expectations. Thank you Leica for making this!
  13. My 1st M6 film shot, here goes with analogue!
  14. Guten Tag zusammen. Ich habe mal wieder meine alte Leica m6 ausgepackt und zurück ins Leben geholt. Alles funktioniert soweit noch einwandfrei, bis auf den Bildfeldwähler. Ich habe ein Summicron 50mm Objektiv drauf und der Bildausschnitt von 50 + 75 mm wird auch im Sucher angezeigt. Der Ausschnitt 35 + 135 mm wird beim zur Seite bewegen des Hebels auch sichtbar. Nur der Ausschnitt 28 + 90mm zeigt sich beim nach innen bewegen des Hebels nicht. Es bleibt der 50 + 75 mm Ausschnitt zu sehen. Hat jemand schonmal von diesem Problem gehört und weiß was die Ursache dafür sein könnte. Dr Google konnte mir bis hierhin leider nicht weiterhelfen... liebe Grüße und danke im Voraus!
  15. The Royal Palace in Aranjuez, Spain. M240, 28mm Elmarit-M ASPH.
  16. I will be taking a trip to Europe again early next year which will be my first trip there with my M9 (instead of my 5DMII). I have all my bases covered above 50mm, so I am looking for a good, wider angle architecture lens that will not break the bank. I have read several reviews, each with their own merit (steve huff, reid reviews, etc..), but I have yet to find one that answers all my questions, so I am posing to this forum to get information on experiences with the following lenses Zeiss 35mm Biogon f/2 (is the gain of speed worth the $200 extra over the 2.8) Zeiss 35mm Biogon f/2.8 (can anyone validate rumors that this lens is sharper than the f/2 from 2.8 on) CV 35mm Nokton f/1.2 (I like CV, but most of their Nokton stuff is portrait material, not architecture. Does this lens follow that mode) Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 (not much out there on this one, but with a 28 frameline, this would be wider) CV 28mm f/2 ultron (most of the reviews are of the older 1.9, I think this one is too new for good assessment...but I am fishing) I do plan to do some cathedral and indoor architecture, so I will place a value on the f/2 and below lenses...however, as with the Zeiss, I understand that the 2.8 might actually be the better lens between it and the f/2 for sharpness and contrast. TIA.
  17. I'm using a Leica Monochrom with an Elmarit M lens, 28 mm, Made in Canada. It's f 2.8, ser 2978547 When I go into the camera's menu to tell the camera what lens I'm using I don't see this lens as an option in the list of usable lenses. What lens should I set the camera for ? Thanks A. David W.
  18. Hallo, ich überlege schon eine ganze Weile hin und her, ob ich den Schritt zur Leica mache. Wäre die M9 nicht so teuer, hätte ich mich schon entschieden, aber auch die M8 reizt mich. Das einzige Problem liegt dabei für mich allerdings darin, das passende Objektiv zur M8 zu finden. Ich möchte eigentlich unbedingt ein ungefähres 35er KB-Äquivalent, also ein 24er, 25er oder 28er und das alles nicht so teuer. Am liebsten wäre mir das 24 Summilux, aber nicht zu dem Preis. In Frage kommen würde für mich z.B. auch das Voigtländer 28/2, was sich an der M8 wohl ganz vernünftig macht, oder wie sind eure Erfahrungen? Eine kleinere Offenblende als f/2 möchte ich eigentlich nicht haben und das 28 Summicron ist mir auch zu teuer. Gibt es denn noch andere Objektive, die ich in eine Auswahl mit aufnehmen sollte? Gibt es außer dem 24 Summilux noch andere M-Objektive, mit einer größeren Offenblende als f/2? Und wie macht sich die M8 + Voigtländer 28/2 im Gegensatz zur Fuji X100 mit der ich momentan zum großen Teil fotografiere? Ich würde mich über Antworten sehr freuen! Danke und viele Grüße

  20. I can't choose between Elmar 24 3.8 or Elmarit 28mm 2.8 Who has used both and know what lens is better, I know this is a dull question since it depends on what I'll be doing with it... but just in regular which do you think is a better companion for my M8?
  21. So here is my story: I bought me an M6 and 50 Cron last winter, and i frigging love it. It is small, rugged and precise, everything i want in a camera. This summer i bought me a 28mm 2.0 Ultron to explore the wider aspects of RF photography and i really like it, BUT it is optically inferior to M-glass, has a bigger filter dimension, and it blocks too much of my finder. Also, i simply do not trust it. It seems unpredictable and mechanically inferior to my other Leica lens. Also, I am wearing glasses, which keeps me from seeing the entire 28 frame-lines. As part of my future plans i will do some extensive travelling, and so i am trying to figure out weather to get me an 28mm Elmarit ASPH + external viewfinder OR a 35mm Cron ASPH. I MIGHT get me an M4 or M6 as backup in the future, but as of now i shoot one body only. Most of my work is environmental portraits and landscapes, and i enjoy having my subject wide, but up close. I realize the 35mm is a somewhat of a middle-ground between 28 and 50, but i am not quite ready to give up on my wide® angle photography just yet. How is working with an external finder on a main-lens? 28(VF)+50mm or 35mm solo? All thoughts and experiences are appreciated. I know these are impossible questions to "answer", as it totally depends on each individual photographer, but what are YOUR experiences surrounding these lenses and/or working with an external viewfinder and glasses etc? Thanks!
  22. Hey everyone, I wanted to create a bit of a fun competition. Given the scary times we are all living in, Halloween this year will be spent in our homes and probably there wont be any trick or treaters. That is why its a perfect opportunity to share your “scariest” shots. These can be shots of scary subjects, scary edits or simply creepy shots you have taken. Rules: Must be taken with 28-35-50-75-90mm lens One post per person (if you are going to post a second one please specify on the second post that it is indeed a second post) All type of photography is allowed Winners will be picked by the amount of likes on individual posts (I’m open to suggestions If you have any) Good competition to everyone cant wait to see your best shots.
  23. here are the thoughts of two photographers on 28mm vs. 35mm for documentary photography. There is nothing "wrong" with the 35mm; for some reason, the 28mm focal length produces images that are more three dimensional looking to my eye. For that reason, I am drawn to the 28mm focal length. I think of my 28mm Elmarit as my documentary lens and my 35mm Summicron as my all-arounder. https://emulsive.org/articles/sharing-my-contact-sheets-india-snapshots-all-xa-all-colour?utm_source=EMULSIVE+Daily+and+Weekly+Newsletters&utm_campaign=e7c973b9ea-RSS_DAILY_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c4b55b017a-e7c973b9ea-174834361
  24. Hey guys, I’ve just purchased this lens for a good price. To make the long story short, it has some bubbles on the back element. I don’t have now the possibility to shoot on a digital camera but I will wait the results of my films soon. do you know what those bubbles are? I think that I will send this lens to a repair center ASAP.
