Hi, got scans back from first roll shot on my M2. Small apertures seem ok, as does the focus on distant subjects. But some portraits at the closest focus and wide open are not good at all and some completely off. I had no trouble with my M9 and the Summilux, and I was under the impression that film was more forgiving. I don't have the M9 anymore to test. One thing I noticed was that the focus patch on the M2 wouIdn't kick in until about .8/.85. I've tweaked the cam now and it does now kick in when the Summilux is at its closest focus, so this may solve the problem on the next film. However, I notice that the Summilux focus ring actually moves past the .7 mark to about where .6 or .65 would be. Perhaps this is the problem, an additional one, or normal – as I said the lens worked fine with the M9, and I quite often shot at 1.4 at close ranges. Any advice would be great thanks, Colin.
