    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. 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.
  3. Ooh, don't be so aloof - gimme a kiss - look, I even brought you some carrots! R5, 90mm Elmarit-R, Neopan 400.
  4. Moin ! Ich mag ja "Shortstories in Bildern", vielleicht durch einen kleinen Text ergänzt..... manchmal ergänzt ein weiteres Bild jedoch auch. Also heute 2 Bilder #1

    M240 + 90 Summicron-M
  6. 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

  8. Hallo, tja, manchmal kommt es anders als man denkt. Nach Recherche, Bilder schauen etc. pp - ihr kennt das alle - bin ich heute nach der Arbeit losgezogen um entweder ein neues oder gebrauchtes 50er Summicron zu kaufen. Also verschiedene gebrauchte ausprobiert. Hmm, die einen wackeln, die anderen sind nicht 100% scharf. Bis auf ein silbernes gebrauchtes für rund 1800 Euro, alles nix wirklich tolles. Dann kann ich auch gleich ein Neues nehmen. Naja, dann aber immer noch ein wenig rumgeschaut und ein sehr schönes, hervorgend gehaltenes 2.8er 90er Elmarit gesehen - zefix, Fokus leicht und perfekt, bei Offenblende sehr, sehr scharf und prinzipiell ja nicht viel größer als mein 1.4 35 Zeiss (ein Traumoptik übrigens). Preis war auch sehr gut, also mitgenommen. Aber eigentlich wollte ich doch ein Summicron - da der Sauter die Leicapreisanpassung noch nicht gemacht hat, ab zum Sauter - das Leben ist nunmal manchmal teuer ... beim Sauter, dann aber doch noch das Zeiss Planar angesehen. Hmm, auch sehr schnuckig. Klein, leicht, sehr gut verarbeitet und statt 2040, halt nur etwas über 700 Euro. Also hin und her verglichen, Laptop aus dem Auto geholt und ... ich konnte keinen wirklichen Unterschied bei der Optik feststellen - und ich wollte wirklich einen sehen. Ach ne, eigentlich sollte doch das 50er ein Leica werden ... am Ende hat dann doch die Vernunft gesiegt und ich habe mich für das Planar entschieden. Sollte es mich irgendwann mal jucken, kann ich immer noch wechseln. Am Ende habe ich noch einen schönen Paketpreis bekommen und die Zeiss-Geli für das 50er und 35er auch noch dazugenommen. Und so kommts manchmal anders als man meint ... Das das Planar sehr gut ist, wusste ich schon, wirklich überrascht hat mich aber das alte 90mm 2.8er Elmarit (mit Ausziehblende) - das Ding ist eine Hammeroptik und extrem easy zu fokusieren. Wer nicht zwingend das Summicron braucht, kann hier bedenkenlos zuschlagen. Für Leicaverhältnisse ein echtes Schnäppchen. Anbei natürlich noch ein paar Bildchen die auf dem Heimweg und Zuhause mit den beiden Optiken entstanden sind, nichts weltbewegendes, aber halt die ersten ... Gruß Daniel
  9. hi all! I have 35 and 75, both lux. but some times I would like to get picture quality as at my 35 lux. 75 bit different. looking at 90/2.8, 90/2, 90/2AA... I shoot landscapes, portraits. not sure but maybe 180/2.8 or 180/2.8 APO as I also wanted something longer than short tele. use these at typ 240 and Sony a7II. any ideas?
  10. Dear Leica community, relatively new to the Leica M world I am thinking about adding a 90mm to my yet small set of glass (50mm Summarit, 35mm Summicron Asph.), especially to take on a 3 months South America trip. I use an M9-P (and a D-Lux 5 as back-up). I read a lot in this forum, blogs, Ken Rockwell/Steve Huff (I know!) etc and my thoughts are as follows: (1) Tele Elmarit (thin) is the smallest and lightest and, therefore, prone to serve as a travel companion. (2) Tele Elmarit is (i) wide open a little bit inferior in terms of optics and (ii) stopped down to f4 equal to the Elmarit M and Summicron but as a relative beginner I will hardly ever notice the difference. (That said, I must say I did see a big difference between a Summaron 35mm/f2.8 and my Summicron 35mm/f2 asph, for whatever that's worth.) (3) The price for a Tele Elmarit in a good condition ranges between EUR 700-1000. My impression is that the price as gone up since 2009. (4) Most reviews say the Elmarit M is better than the Summicron and much smaller and lighter and if the f2.0 isn't absolutely necessary the Elmarit is the better option. We see similar used prices for both. I am not 100% sure how I would use the 90mm but my plan is to not only use it for portraits but also for landscape and street photography (why not). Now, my questions are: (1) Are my thoughts correct? (2) What would you recommend? (3) I have an offer for a Summicron M in good condition and an Elmarit-M (haven't held it in hands but allegedly good condition as well) both for EUR 850. Reasonable? Many thanks. Greetings from Munich Daniel
  11. As quite new Leica user I have the M9 with my 50mm Summicron f/2 and my newest purchase 21mm Elmarit from 1991. Now it is time for a 90mm. Which one should I buy? Used is also fine for me.
  12. A less than ideal for a trip up the Shard. M9, Elmarit-M 90mm, SEfexPro2.
  13. Can someone tell me if this is truly a triplet? From what I know the knurled focus ring and 39mm thread suggest this is of Walter Mandler designed triplet. It is also bayonet mount But all Serial number lists suggest its made in 1962: 1 913 001-1 967 100: 1962 According to Erwin Puts it is made in 1964: 4/90mm, Elmar , 3-element lens, 1964. This lens is a Canadian design and with only three single elements, a case-study of optical simplicity. Its full aperture performance is better than that of the predecessor with the classical 3 group/4 element construction. Overall contrast is a bit higher, the definition of fine detail has improved edge contrast and especially the performance in the field is much better. Vignetting is .7 stops. At 1:4 the contrast gets visibly higher and now very fine detail is recorded over the whole image area with good clarity. The Elmarit 1:2.8/90mm at 1: 4 cannot equal the 3-element Elmar here. Stopping down further brings in finer detail and at 1:11 we find image quality of a thoroughly modern level. This lens has been introduced at the same time as the Tele-Elmarit 1:2.8/90mm, which replaced the Elmarit 1:2.8/90mm. As the Tele-Elmarit could not be used with the bellows attachment and had not the best performance at closer distances, Leitz offered the Elmar as a lens for these applications. Close up performance is quite good. Distortion is negligible. It does show the intriguing strategy of fine tuning the lens performance for a specified set of tasks. It was not possible in those days to create one general purpose lens and so Leitz optimised the designs in different directions. A luxury that could not be extended indefinitely as it was a costly strategy. With modern glasses, this lens would deliver a very interesting performance. Any insight would be appreciated? I hope I am not violating any rules by quoting Puts? If it truly is, What is the value of this lens in decent condition, not mint but pretty nice? Thanks in advance.
  14. While on a walk about I came upon a tree in San Juan which had about 10 of these fellows on it. This caterpillar is the larval stage of a pretty large but undistinguished moth. The caterpillar however is amazing... this one was about 6 inches long... they look very fierce but apparently only filled with toxin to taste poorly to birds. They had stripped the tree bare. Thanks for looking.
  15. This is a long exposure 90 sec... made looking down on a small pier by the San Juan Gate. Many thanks for looking and for your comments.
  16. Hi, I am in the market for a used 90mm M. What are your experiences with those two lenses - which one would you recommend and why? Used price are somewhat similar... And what about 75mm 2.5 Summarit. I read about some people saying 75 Summarit is brilliant, but at the same time they didn't like 90mm 2.5 Summarit that much. Any help is welcome. Thanks / Alex
  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?
  18. Captured today in the afternoon in Torino. Leica M-E, Elmar-C 90mm, DGN to B&W in Lightroom 5. thanks for watching, Massimo
  19. Film arrived from Amazon. M3 arrived from eBay. Looks clean and great. Collapsible vintage 90 arrived. I mount it on the camera. Extend it. Aperture clicks smoothly. But focus is stuck. I know that this lens locks focus until lit is extended and twisted clockwise. I've done that. And tried pressing the button on the lens, bout that seems only to permit it to collapse. Am I missing a key step or did I get suckered on eBay? I'm guessing its user error but can't find anything on Ken Rockwell or here to suggest what that might be. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hi everybody! First of all, if this is the wrong forum for a repair-type question, please forgive a newbie and point me in the right direction... So: I just got my first Leica this past weekend - a 1956 M3, DS converted to SS. Seems to work fine so far. Anyway, the seller included an extra lens for free because it's not fully functional... It's a screw-mount Elmar 9cm 1:4 (90mm f/4), non-collapsable. It seems to be in mostly decent shape except that the aperture ring doesn't adjust the aperture. It's stuck most of the way open, and the ring just rotates without changing the opening. I see two screw holes on the aperture ring, but no screws. I'm guessing there are supposed to be set screws that make the ring adjust the aperture. My question: Are the screws tough to find for this? If so, I'm hoping that's all it takes to fix the aperture. It would be nice to turn a freebie into a usable portrait lens. I don't think it would be worth the money to send it in for repair based on what these go for on eBay or KEH. Any thoughts?
  21. I need a little help here, I inherited my fathers Pentak and Leica camera - M8 (used) and M6 (never used) with lenses and accessories. I am thinking of keeping one of the cameras to take pictures of my kids, ie. Sports, vacations and general pictures. My limited experience with cameras are my Iphone 4 and $100 Nikon, Kodak, and Sony pocket cameras. What would make the best camera for my needs and abilities - please consider I am willing to learn how to use the camera! Any help would be appreciated.

  23. Das 35+90 wird oft als die klassische Weltreiseausstattung bezeichnet. Ein 35 mm auszuwählen ist kein Problem. Das neue Summilux scheint schon ein vielversprechender Kandidat zu sein:) Aber jetzt wird es kniffelig: Welche leichtgewichtige (!) 90 mm überzeugt an der M9? Summicron 90: leicht? Wohl nicht direkt. Tele-Elmarit-M (4 Linsen)? 225 gr. Das ist mal leicht für 90mm! Aber als ich den Händler gefragt habe, hat er mir davon an der M9 abgeraten. Es soll vergleichsweise weich sein. Für Protraits bestimmt ganz okay. Aber vermutlich nicht ganz passend an der M9. Summarit 90: 360 gr. Gewicht okay. Aber ist die Performance an der M9 gut genug? Vielleicht könnt ihr mir weiterhelfen? Habt ihr vielleicht sogar Fotos von typischen Reisemotiven mit 90 mm an der M9? Vielen Dank für euren Rat! (Suchfunktion habe ich schon benutzt)
  24. Guten Tag, ich habe ein summicron M 90mm Gekauft. Seriennr. 2813709 Leitz Canada mit Auszieblende. Ausgehend von Leica-Wiki habe ich Filter E55 gekauft - passen aber nicht. Warum? Und was kann ich machen? Gibt es Adabter? Vielen Dank schon mal für hilfreiche Antworten.
  25. Just a curiosity really... saw this item for sale on ebay: a Leitz 7.5cm f/0.85 lens? Never heard of it in the books before so I was wondering if anyone else knows about it. Maybe it was for some military application or other? I've only heard of a 90mm f/1 lens up until now... boy Leica has made some amazing stuff. ~ Mike
