  4. Simply using a tripod, 21mm 3.4 ASPH and a flashlight to create the product shots below. Not sure if People section is the right place for these photos...but I can't find "product shots", and I treat my motorbike as my GF~ LOL #1 - V-Rod Muscle + Reality Stone~ #2 - The "fire" was actually my hand lit by the flashlight... by mistake #3 - My friend's bike - Kawasaki ZRX400 #4 - Honda CBR250rr
  5. I recently bought a used "mint" Summilux 35 ASPH FLE and upon receiving it I discovered the inside of the lens to be extremely dusty. Needless to say, I returned it immediately. I do wonder how this could be possible though - the lens was sold to the previous owner in 2016/10 so it's been used for about a year. I just can't believe a one-year-old lens can have this much dust in it. Is there some type of design flaw with the FLE version that makes it prone to dust? I'm thinking about getting a new one so I don't want the lens to be like this after a year...
  6. I recently purchased a brand new unopened 50 summilux f/1.4 asph lens in silver and when I unpackaged it I noticed a clear liquid on the outside barrel of the lens. I was able to wipe it off but wondered what it was? And whether I should exchange the lens for a different one? Inside the lens it looks fine at the moment and not sure if liquid would have seeped inside. Just wandered if anyone had a similar experience. I want to make sure nothing is wrong with the lens since I spent 4K on it.
  7. This might have already been covered somewhere.....but here it is: Since getting the Summilux 35 ASPH FLE (11663), I have been troubled by the inconvenience of switching between shooting with and without the lens hood. In fact I like the lens without the hood, which is shorter. But in very sunny days I really also want to have the lens hood attached. I'm not one of those gutty ppl who can do without a protective filter. hence the problem: Whenever I remove the lens hood, I feel I should attach the thread protector, which can only be done by removing the filter first, as the thread protector has a lip that prevents it from being screwed into place if the filter is attached already. The other day I chanced upon a strange solution, as I looked at my fuji x100 and wondered if its lens hood adapter will actually fit the 11663's exposed outer thread. Well, it does fit. so I have been using it since, as it can be screwed into place with the filter attached to the lens. Sometimes I just use the x100's hood instead, which can be attached and removed easily. You can also flip it and attach it the other way around, which to me looks a bit better: Granted it doesn't look as nice as the Leica thread protector that comes with the lens, but it is indeed more convenient. Oh and...slightly increased finder blockage with the x100's hood, but the difference seems quite negligible.

    Closed for Lunch ?

    Leica T + 50mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH ISO 200, f1.4, 1/125 "Closed for Lunch ?"
  9. I've read one long thread and a few mentions of this phenomenon here on this forum. I'm curious of todays status regarding the rattle issue with this lens. I recently bought a mint in box 35 Lux FLE second hand, the lens is perfect in every way except that it sounds like a rhythm instrument. Mine is a 416xxxx meaning its 2012 produced. It has no back/front focus, It's super sharp wide open at f/1.4 and the focus ring is smooth and nice. The aperture ring is perhaps a little loose, but not bothersome, and about the same as my 50 lux. The sound is only apparent when the lens is moved up and down, not side to side (front element facing upwards) and is surprisingly loud, so loud that if I'm indoors in a silent room i hear it on my hip as i'm walking out. As soon as the ambient noise rise it drowns though. Meaning, it doesn't bother me that much. After researching the matter i understand that Leica has stated that this is normal and that it's the aperture cage that rattles and that this is a part of the design assuring that the lens will function optimally. I also read that different copies are affected differently, some pretty much silent, some rattles with different volume, and some vary depending on f-stop (mine quiets down a little at f/16) Now, in 2016, how many current owners of the Summilux 35 FLE is affected by this? I'm also curious if anyone reading this thread have purchased a new-in-box lens that do/don't rattle. I'm also interested in hearing from members that had the lens CLA'ed with this issue. I heard that Leica can use some shims or similar to mute the rattle if requested.
  10. Hi Guys, Am fairly new to Leica (6 months in) and I would like to seek your advice on which 35mm lens to get. I currently use a M240 body with a 60mm F1.2 Konica Hexanon and a 50mm Summicron APO. I am looking to add a 35mm lens to compliment my existing collection (and will be looking at add a 28mm Elmarit when the new one releases end of the month). I am considering the follow: 35 Summilux Pre-ASPH 35 Summicron Pre-ASPH Version 1 35 Summicron Pre-ASPH Version 4 35 Summicron ASPH (2016 edition) After doing some extensive research, I feel like the 3 Pre-ASPH lens may be a better compliment as it is softer / has more of a leica glow (since my 50mm APO and the 28mm Elmarit are both bitingly sharp)? I was originally going to just get a 28 and 50 and NOT the 35 since it seems to be too close to the other 2 focal lengths, so I am now thinking maybe getting something with more of a unique characteristic). Just wondering what all your thoughts are and why you think so? Your kind assistance is very much appreciated. Thank you. Best Regards, J
  11. I have a number of different modern Leica wide angles, fast and slow, on the M240. The one that I struggle with most is a new 28mm Summicron Asph. It has a lovely soft rendering, but often, used wide open or even stopped down, nothing much appears to be sharp, has the micro contrast or bite of the other lenses. I have no doubt that some of this is operator error, camera shake, etc. But it is noticeable in live view that the peaking shows less red than I am accustomed to with other lenses. Is this normal? Any suggestions for testing whether I have a lemon / Friday pm lenses? I know, I should have done some tests, but I am always distracted by something more interesting.

    The "Pizzardone"

    In Italy, but in particular in Rome, the local police man is called "Pizzardone". This one was actually standing outside the Place of the Major of Turin. M7, Summicron-M 35/2 ASPH, Tri-x 400 cheers, Massimo
  14. Hello guys, My question for today: What are aspherical surfaces in lenses, and what do they do exactly?
  15. I just purchased a used Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH from the NYC Leica Store. I got it for a really good deal, basically $1000 off. For some reason it seems to be a bit greasy. Also the glass looked like it had a smudge and I used my lens pen to clean it. It then greased up the front element. What should I do? Return, or just clean? If clean what do you guys recommend.
  16. The price for both of these lenses is similar enough that I'm considering them both.. Actually, what I'm considering is more like this. CZ 35mm Biogon f/2 + CV Nokon 40 1.4 or Nokton 35mm 1.2 ASPH II I need a lens for indoors, when visiting friends, etc.. and I need to to be relatively fast, ~ f/1.4 or so. I'm a big fan of Zeiss, the 50 1.4 on my 5D Mk III was my most used lens. I've read fantastic things about the Biogon f/2 and comparing the sharpness of the Biogon @ f/2 and the Nokton 1.2 @ f/2, they're pretty evenly matched (according to what I read via Sean Reid). Obviously the Biogon isn't that fast, so I was thinking of pairing it with a Nokton 40 1.4 for those indoor uses, while the Biogon would be for mainly outdoor usage (I had also tested an 35mm Ultron 1.7 but it was a bit softer wide-open then I was hoping). I'm picking up an M9 + CZ Planar 50mm f/2 shortly (that decision is finally made!), so unfortunately I do not have a ton of money left over for 35mm.. $1500-$1600 is probably it, so unfortunately any fast Leica's are out of reach. Is there anyone out there who has used both the Nokton 35 1.2 II and the Biogon f/2 and decided to keep one or the other (or has any input on the two?) I realize they have different applications, and I'm a bit worried the Nokton 1.2 might be just a large and unwieldy lens that works great in lower-light situations, but end up being not so useful for an every-day, general 35mm lens. I think the Biogon + Nokton 40 1.4 might be a better combo, but it's almost $400-$500 more. Thoughts, comments, suggestions?
  17. ich habe mir ein 1.5/50 asph. bestellt und es überzeugt mich in punkto optik und haptik. leider ist die fokusierung sehr schwergängig ... ich muss sehr viel mehr kraft aufwenden als bei meinen ZMs. gibt sich das mit der zeit oder habe ich ein besonders schwergängiges erwischt? danke und viele grüße jan
  18. Hi I was wondering which lens will last longer before showing this paint / finish wearing off marks. Will Summicron 35mm ASPH (black) last longer than Biogon 35mm (black)?
  19. Hey Folks, my first post here - yay! I noticed this horizontal bluish flare in the upper right corner with my Summicron 35/2 Asph. I shoot film (M4-P with original clip-on hood and B+W UV or ND Filter) so I can't do a thousand test shots. See the attached testshots. It appears in one or two images per roll. Didn't notice that with other lenses. Anybody experienced the same thing? Any suggestions? Thank you very much! P flickr: www.flickr.com/peertheer
  20. Hey everyone, I just recently got hold of this beautiful 35 summicron ASPH although i have a slight issue... The front ring where you clip the hood onto and screw additional filters into spins freely around, this doesn't not seem to be effecting any of the glass elements. I've read a few things of people saying they had the same problem and it's just something inside that needs tightening, screws or something? I'm normally pretty competent when it comes to fixing things but this is something i don't feel comfortable doing this as i don't want to risk it. Has anyone else had the same issue? Thanks. (i can include diagrams if need be)
  21. 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
  22. Just obtained a Monochrom yesterday. I am impressed with the details of the DNG it produced. first few photos, and behold, a huge dust! blow it off and it's perfect again! But just can't believe a camera with 100actuation of shutter have such a dirty sensor! I am blown away by the details this camera can produce. Love it!
  23. I know, i know - sharpness isn't the most important aspect of making photographs but if one is paying a premium for a lens, it better be good :-) I recently acquired a 50 Summilux ASPH and I've been testing it. I find it truly exception wide open at close distances but once the distance exceeds 3 meters, I find that the quality decreases drastically - even a cheap Summicron C 40 surpasses it on all apertures (I make it sound as if the Summicron C is a poor quality lens but it is stellar in many ways actually). I've been wondering if this is part of the quality of the lens or if perhaps my M9 and the Summilux need calibration? Here are a few pictures of the same scene at the full scope of full-stop apertures starting f1.4, f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, and f16.
  24. Hallo Zusammen, ich bin noch recht neu in der Leica-Welt und wollte mal eure Meinung zum angehängten Foto (f1.4, Fokus auf den Blättern im Vordergrund) hören. Ist dieses Verhalten in extremen Gegenlichtsituationen für das 50mm Summilux ASPH normal? Der helle Streifen der aus der Sonne läuft ist vermutlich eher ein Problem des Sensors. Gibt es hierzu Erfahrungen eurerseits? Viele Grüße, Oliver
