  2. Here is a copy of a page from the 1938 Leica Catalogue coming from a dealer in Dublin and altered by hand to reflect prices increases and new models which were available around 1949. For example, IIIb becomes IIIc, but the model change does not really account for the huge increases in price. In 1939 a IIIb with Summar cost £43, but in 1949 a IIIc with Summar cost £86, an increase of 100%. This cannot be just explained by the change in model from 'b' to 'c'. In 1938 a IIIb with Xenon cost £59-6-0 and in 1949 an equivalent IIIc with Summarit cost £98-10-0. The war had obviously caused inflation effects and wage increases and material prices and shortages would also have had an impact. The dealer in this case was largely an optician business and I suspect that the supply to Dublin may have been from the Leitz office at 20 Mortimer Street in London. At that time the Irish pound was linked on a one for one basis with Sterling. Any information on British prices in the post war period would be welcomed. There may have some tariff differences by that time. US and European price increases over that period would also be interesting. William

  4. Hi guys, I haven't find any serious comparison between new Summarit 35mm f2.4 and the older f2.5 version on the net. I've read in some reviews there isn't any difference between the optics and the new version only advertised as aspherical however the older has the same optics ! Is it right? But Ken Hansen a famous Leica dealer believes that there is a huge difference between the optics, design and picture sharpness and Summarit f2.4 can be compared with Summicron f2 in quality. What do you think? have you ever compared or experienced both? I'm have two choices to buy now with the same $1150 price. one is a brand new Summarit f2.5 and the other is a lightly used Summarit f2.4 which has been bought 3 years ago. Should i go for brand new f2.5 or the quality difference worth it to buy the used f2.4?
  5. Hallo und guten Tag, nachdem mich vor etwa zwei Jahren der Rotpunktvirus in Form einer X1 infizierte, beschäftigte ich mich mehr oder weniger auch mit den Messsucherkameras. Zur X1 gesellten sich später noch eine X-Vario und eine X-E. Die Vario ist mein treues Arbeitspferd mit einer wirklich tollen Optik und besticht durch gutes handling. Dennoch ging mir eine "M" nicht aus den Kopf, das Probehalten einer M8 brachte jedoch nicht den gewünschten Effekt. Nun war es soweit, eine gebrauchte M9 oder M-E soll es werden. Bereits vor einigen Tagen ergatterte ich ein neuwertiges Summarit 75/2.5. Warum diese Brennweite? Ich fotografiere gern am langen Ende meiner Vario (70mm) und wollte daher diesem Exoten eine chance geben. Die Lichtstärke genügt meinen Ansprüchen. Eine toll erhaltene M-E aus 2015 mit ca. 7000 Auslösungen wurde für einen fairen Kurs von meinem Vertrauenshändler angeboten, da schlug ich zu. Es ist nun das Kassenmodell in Rammsteinhaptik - aber mir gefällt sie sehr gut. Mit dem MS komme ich auch schon recht gut zurecht, ich freue mich auf die erste Fototour. Die Bedienung finde ich logisch und schnell, besonders die elegante Lösung mit dem Belichtungsspeicher und das satte Auslösegeräusch fasziniert mich. Im Zulauf habe ich einen Visoflex III, da ich auch mit Telebrennweiten arbeiten möchte. Mal schauen, was sich da noch tut. Anbei ein schnelles handyfoto Viele Grüße!

  8. Hi All, I'm a bit new here or rather I've lurked here for a very long time without posting. I've tried searching a bit, but I can't seem to find anything on the specific question I have or perhaps I'm searching poorly I currently have a chrome 50mm Summilux pre-asph that I am using on a M3 and M7, but as it's well documented this lens has a bit of a classic look to its rendering and at times lacks the micro contrast and corner sharpness of modern designs and do love the look of the lens. The classic rendering is a big part of why I haven't upgraded to an ASPH version. I do a lot of portraiture and this look is very forgiving in that scenario. I've used this lens for about 3 years now so I feel pretty comfortable with its look overall. That being said, there are quite a few occasions where I would like a bit more of a modern rendering. I think I like the modern rending for a lot of the non portrait everyday type uses. So I am wondering if there are any users here who currently field a pre asph summilux and an additional 50mm lens as a complement in other situations. I am seriously considering the 50mm summarit 2.4 as my second lens. I have heard that it has a way of rendering that is a bit classic and modern at the same time and has a smaller footprint. Does anyone an opinion on using the older lux and summarit as a sibling lens? For reference I have also used the 50mm DR summicron(Loved the handling and sharpness, but it was similarly classic to my summilux) and the 50mm Zeiss Planar f/2(liked the lens, but didn't care for the handling) Thanks so much!
  9. Hello, a new Leica owner here. I found an M6 with a 35mm f/2.5 lens on sale for $1700 from a local pro photographer. It's not in the newest of shape but well maintained and cared for. The lens was bought new 3 years ago. Is this a good deal? Thank you in advance.

  18. All; I currently own a Leica M8, and have a 28mm and 50mm lens. On the M8, the 28mm is a (37mm equivalent, and the 50 is approx. a 66mm) Blah-Blah-Blah Anyway, I was thinking about a 35mm, (which would give me approx. a 46mm on the M8). I'm not looking to spend $3k on a 35mm Summicron. I've heard some good things about the Summarit and the Zeiss Biogons. The only thing about the Summarit is that the optional shade ($135.00) only screws in part of the way, as there is some sort of stop, which keeps it oriented properly since it is a rectangular shade. Now, what if I use a Cut IR on the Summarit, (which is pretty much mandatory for the M8)? Can the Optional Summarit lens shade screw into that properly, or should I just opt for a 'generic' B+W screw-in round metal shade for $25.00? You would really have to own a Summarit to know what I'm talking about. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks, Brad

  20. Morris dancing is a traditional folk dance from England and dates back hundreds of years. The dancers dance traditional jigs usually wearing bells and ribbons. It's thought the Morris comes from Moorish and they were imitating North Africa/Spanish dances. As you can see from the images, most of the dancers are older and it is thought that Morris dancing could die out. Though there has been a revival apparently with Neopagan Morris dancers and the 'Dark Morris' which comes from a Discworld novel!

  21. Hey guys! I spent 6 weeks in NYC basically just taking pictures ... mostly street, but also Landscape and People ... I mostly used my M9 and 35mm Summilux ASPH (pre FLE) wide open and sometimes my S (006) and 70mm Summarit. If I don't comment which combo I used, it'll be the M9 35Lux combo... Feel free to comment and critique I'm not a pro and I just do stuff the way I like it .. so not everything is perfect... Here are a couple of shots from the End of July .. some of the best sunsets I have ever seen.

The light streamed through a gap in the buildings diffusing the fountains with a beautiful golden light. Just at the moment a young girl decided to cool off.

  24. I own both the Summarit and the Summitar. I like the swirl bokeh of Summitar better. What do you think?
