    Thambar-Crazy

    Ok - call me crazy, weird, mad, bored, out of focus, trend follower - what ever you like. I have it. Sorry - only iPhone photos. Unpacking and first impressions: Beauty - compared to many others. Impractical - compared to state of the art in handling. Unique - compared to many nowadays bubble-swirly-something bokeh cameras. Unexpected - in its characteristics and rendering. The beauty - I like it’s look on a silver M. Yes - it’s impractical. Turning the aperture ring means turning the focus ring too. Too much rotation for focussing. Hood fixing - OMG. Removing lens cap means removing hood unintentionally. So it gives an idea what photography meant in 30’s…. However - I accept it. It’s an impractical beauty. And the first guy I showed it said: „Wow - a real historical camera an looking brand new!“ Unique - as far as I can see after just a few shots in the city. I have a Petzval 58 and a Meyer Görlitz Trioplan 100mm. I’m going to sell them now to make my Thambar a little bit cheaper to me. Because it’s far beyond these lenses. All these "swirly-bokeh-pieces" are nothing against the bokeh and the glow of this lens. Unexpected - in street lights at night wide open IMO shows an ugly and a beautiful side: With center spot filter ugly rings or donuts. Without interesting glow around lights and nice or at least acceptable bokeh-bubbles out of focus. Yes - it is sharp - even wide open - eh - somehow. Kind of „soft sharp“. Low micro contrast but letters can be read - in center. To me it's really amazing. And as mentioned - glow everywhere where a bit of light comes across. In short: This lens is crazy. And I seem to become Thambar-crazy. Unfortunately the subject which this lens is made for - portrait and nature - I can't take before later this month. Of course I’ll show some examples here then. For the moment I have just a few shots made on my way from my friendly dealer - and just to see the effects of rendering. After all this partly boring examples in the web I hardly dare to add some others. OK - I do.
  2. This topic of 90mm lenses have been discussed many times I know. But I thought I should contribute too, with my own post and some findings. With my quest to get a Leica mount portrait lens for my Sony A7ii camera, I visited red dot cameras in London. I tried various lenses as below 1) 80 Lux-R (similar to 75 lux it is said) 2) 100/2.8 APO-R 3) 90 elmarit-m 4) 90 Summicron-m (non APO) 5) 90/4 macro elmar m I attach a collage of pictures (raw, unprocessed) made with maximum aperture of each lens, except number 2. Unfortunately, I did not like elmarit, you can see why from the attached picture. It feels too warm to me (bottom left). For me, I think the top left (80-lux) and top right (90 cron, non APO) have the best rendition; Lux for its dreamy magical look and the non APO for being very pleasant with good skin tones. macro elmar m (bottom right) is good too, but it won't achieve much separation with f4 over cron. I know this is a very limited set-up and these lenses will work differently outdoors. What do people think based on my attachment?
  3. Some time ago I started a blog (www.mbphotox.wordpress.com) about adapted 50mm lenses on my Canon DSLR. A Leica 50 was on my wishlist for half a year and when I finally went out to buy one, I came home with an Elmarit-R 135mm f/2.8 because the Cron had been picked up by another guy right before I arrived at the store. A few months later, I found a great offer online and bought an Elmarit-R 28mm and finally also the Summicron-R 50mm I had been looking for. Having three lenses, I figured "why not get back into shooting film?", and so I started looking for a suitable Leica R body. The SL2 was not an option since all my lenses are R-only, and the R6 was simply too damn expensive. R3 to R5 it was.. I stumbled upon this expensive offer that had been online for weeks, by a guy who wanted to sell his pristine Summicron-R 90mm together with a near-mint Leica R5... I ended up talking him down by 20% and bought the package Loaded a roll of Superia 200 last night and am looking forward to the results. Here are some pics (more can be found on the blog) The baseplate shows slight signs of wear, the brass shines through at some areas, but other than that it's perfect. My lenses, without the 90mm, I've still got to take pictures of that one. But it only arrived 2 days ago.

    Elmar

    This is using a 90mm Elmar f4 lens, from 1951 on a digital body. I managed to focus it, more by feel than by sight. I'm liking the lens a little more than I did initially. It does well in flat lighting, as shade, here.

  14. I'm going on a little vacation in two weeks. Might see a little bit of wildlife. Not that I want to be doing professional wildlife photography with the kinds of zoom lenses that entails, but I'd like something with much narrower field of view than my 23mm Summicron-T. Should I rent the Summarit-M 90mm or the APO-Vario-Elmar-T 55-135mm as a secondary lens? Anyone have experience using both? I tried the 55-135mm a few months ago and autofocus was so slow it was almost unusable (so might as well get the more compact manual focus M lens). But I haven't tried it with firmware 1.4.
  15. I just came back from a very nice backpacking trip and carried my M240 with just two lens. Cron ASPH 28 and Macro Elmar M 90. I have settled on this combo as my backpacking lens set. This is just three and a quarter pound combo with one extra battery and a lens pouch. Pretty light compared to anything out there equivalent. I didn't even feel it in my entire trip... not in the full 40lb backpack, nor in the light and fast summit backpack. I shot around 250 pics with 60% battery remaining. 28mm remained as my go to lens most of the time. It is perfect for any beautiful scenary and allows me to shoot fast without too much concern for framing. Aperture f2 helps me to get those nice campground shots in low light evening and campfire night shots. I changed to 90mm some times to get tight shots of the scenery and full body shots of my hiking buddies. I also used it to get multiple shots for stitching giving me 50MP picture of the scenery easily for few nice ones. Here are few pics: #1 View of Mt Whitney (14,505ft) in the center from Mt. Langley (14,026ft) using 28mm. Mt Whitney is the highest mountain in the contiguous United States. Before I had Leica (I had Canon gear), it was unthinkable for me to carry a high res camera with a sharp lens on this kind of trips. #2 Closeup of Whitney using 90mm (cropped heavily). I was amazed to see the hut on the peak. You can even make out few hikers (one immediately left of the hut and others on the right towards the drop. 90mm Macro Elmar M is sharp !! You can read about the hut here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smithsonian_Institution_Shelter. #3 Sierra bighorn sheep on a lifeless landscape using 90mm. We were threatened by the afternoon thunderstorm and rushing down as fast we could. You can see dark clouds behind the ridge. suddenly we spotted these animals running across the landscape. They are at the bottom on a smoother soil. These are endangered animals with only 500 in the wild. I simply pulled the camera and fired many shots focused to infinity keeping at f4 to get as fast shutter speed as possible. #4 Crop of the above to show how sharp it is at f4. I could even identify the animal from the crop. Now I just need more wall space to hang huge prints.

  17. I recently purchased a Hexanon 90mm for my M240 and I really am quite pleased with the lens in general, however I've noticed that it tends to focus behind what I'm intending which delivers a slightly soft image overall. When I use live view or the EVF on my M240 I can nail the focus and it is an impressively sharp image. I suppose with practice I can learn where this point is and just adjust for it, but I wondered if it is possible to adjust the point of focus on the lens so that I don't always have to rely on the EVF for a sharp image. I've read that the thickness of the KM lenses are just ever so slightly different than M mount lenses and as such they can result in slight backfocus (as I'm experiencing). Any tips?

  20. Ooh, don't be so aloof - gimme a kiss - look, I even brought you some carrots! R5, 90mm Elmarit-R, Neopan 400.

  22. M9 Elmarit-M 90mm f/2.8 @f5.6 Capture One V11 A monochrome day that looked like it felt in the M9 natural colour palette. You have to admire Leica for their choice of colour parameters for this camera's output, it makes it effortless, I don't think I have ever found settings for the Nikon output as satisfying but reports are the new D850 is "different" in that respect. Get thee behind me. The green on the Trees is Lichen BTW.

  24. Hallo Zusammen, ich hoffe, meine Frage ist nicht schon zum Xten mal behandelt worden, aber ich bin bei meiner Suche nach einem 90iger als Laie und Anfänger etwas durcheinander geraten. Ich besitze seit letztem Jahr eine Leica M9 mit einem Summicron 35mm und einem Summicron 50mm beide aus Canada und für meine Begriffe bekomme ich da schon schöne Fotos hin. Jetzt habe ich im Urlaub in Monschau zuweilen eine etwas längere Brennweit vermisst, da ich z.B. an Gebäuden, alten Häusern manchmal kleine Verzierungen gefunden habe, die ich mit dem 50iger nur schwer abbilden konnte. Auch Fotos von den streunenden Straßenkatzen waren problematisch, das sie mich nur auf gewisse Distanz heranließen. Also etwas mehr Brennweite wäre nicht schlecht, wie so oft ist da Budget überschaubar (+-600€) Jetzt find ich in der Bucht oder bei einschlägigen Shops gebrauchte Linsen zu akzeptablen Preisen, die hier im Forum vermittelten Informationen verwirren mich aber eher ein wenig. Was wäre denn passend für die M9, für Aufnahmen draußen bei gutem Wetter mit ausreichender Schärfe? Gefunden habe ich das Tele Elmarit, das Elmar, das Summicron oder auch ein Rokkor. Hat Jemand einen Tip für mich? Da ich hier in der Provinz ( was Leica-Shops angeht) eher auf die Online-Möglichkeiten angewiesen bin, kann ich natürlich kaum probieren. Und übrigens, das Gewicht spielt nur eine Nebenrolle, komme von der Nikon D200 mit großem Gepäck, bin da also abgehärtet. Für Infos jeder Art bin ich dankbar. Gruß Heiner
