  1. Hi to everyone here, I currently owned M6 and MP (type 240) by nature, i usually like shooting at 35 mm focal length. I am aiming to upgrade my summicron asph to a summilux which 35mm summilux lens will be the ‘one lens’that would fit with my two camera bodies?(digital and film) I will be studying abroad( in edinburgh), so i would like to hear thoughts and comments from fellow experienced users in this forum. Thank you
  2. Hi all, apologies if this topic has already been covered (I couldn't find any direct comparisons). I'm new to the rangefinder universe, I finally took the plunge this week and invested in an M10 with a 50 ASPH lux. I'm looking for a (preferably fast) wider companion and interested in hearing from people with experience of both the Zeiss 35mm 1.4 and the Summilux 35mm 1.4 - what have your experiences been, are there any advantages/disadvantages of one over the other (I know the Zeiss is bigger), which do you prefer? I don't mind sacrificing reduced weight and size for superior image quality, I'm already loving the feel of the 50 lux's files and want to keep that micro-contrasty Leica vibe. I know these things are subjective, opinions welcome! Thanks in advance! Chris
  3. I just got my black chrome 50mm Summilux ASPH (11688). As a number of people who have received their lens have pointed out in this thread http://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/242441-new-35-cron-and-50-lux-available-in-black-chrome/, the hood won't fit over numerous E43 filters people have tried. I tried with my Carl Zeiss E43 UVa filter, which attaches to the lens just fine, and in this case the hood also won't fit. I thought I would illustrate the problem for two reasons: 1. As a warning, should this affect any purchase decisions. It would seem a normal E43 filter and the supplied hood cannot be used at the same time. But also... 2. to solicit advice from people less mechanically-challenged than me! Perhaps I'm just not doing this right, and there is actually a solution. Please help! Okay, here are the pictures to illustrate this problem - Note the female groove at the top of the lens barrel. The hood has squeeze tabs to pull these grips flush with the lens. The hood has a male groove that stops the hood being lowered any further than this groove. Releasing the tabs moves the grips back out and they clamp onto the female groove on the lens. Attaching this filter (and I presume many others) does not cause a problem with the overall circumference to clear. This one is perfectly flush with the lens barrel. Here is the hood affixed without the filter. Note the height. Here is the hood affixed with the filter. The extra height created by the filter prevents the grips from reaching the female groove on the lens barrel. It has no grip at all really and would come off at the slightest bump. The issue then is one of height. I'm not sure if any filter will be thin enough to avoid this problem. Thoughts...? What am I missing here?

    Schönes Summilux der ersten Baureihe. Who doesn't like the goggles too much should be aware that this M3-version has close focus ability down to 0.65m, whilst the even more expensive M2-version only goes to 1m... Condition see pics, nice aperture click stops, smooth focussing, body without scuff marks. There is some dust inside as expected, but no scratches, cleaning marks, no haze, no mold, no oil on blades. The goggles have some faint marks on the outer glass, but are clear to look through. I am in Spain, and every four weeks in Germany. Insured shipping at cost. EU sales preferred! Spreche auch Deutsch. También hablo Español. Good light!!! Knut

    Seller' Note: Gently used. Excellent condition. Minor signs of wear. Slight smudges on screen and body (see photos). Lense is perfectly clean. Always carefully handled. Includes all shown accessories (Leica box, manuals, battery, charger, plugs, cable PLUS third-party extras such as a camera case, extra batteries, and charger). Thanks for looking. From online: Leica 18441 Overview Embracing high quality imaging and compact forms, Leica's X (Typ 113) Digital Camera packs in a large 16.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and marries it to a Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens that will provide users with spectacular images and an equivalent field of view to the iconic 35mm frame. The camera also shows off Leica's brilliant Made in Germany design with a sleek black body with a brown leatherette trim. Furthering the camera's capabilities is a physical control ring located on the lens barrel, offering tactile manual focusing during shooting. The wide f/1.7 aperture then adds more creative possibilities by allowing photographer's to take control of their depth-of-field and take in more light for low-light shooting. Merging a variety of different technologies, this camera is able to capture remarkable stills at up to 5 fps in the raw DNG file format as well as Full HD 1080p video at up to 20 fps. On top of this, it can utilize sensitivities of up to ISO 12500 for sharp, clear photos in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. In addition to manual focus, this camera does come equipped with an 11-point AF system that will quickly and accurately lock onto your subjects. Composing and reviewing images is done via the rear 3.0" 920k-dot TFT LCD screen. This display has a wide viewing angle and 100% coverage so shooters will know exactly what they are going to capture and will not be misled when shooting at angles. Users can also pick up an optional optical or electronic viewfinder to further their comfort during use. The camera records images and video to an SD, SDHC, or SDXC card. Also, the compact lightweight magnesium and aluminum body is reminiscent of their classic M rangefinders. Taking cutting-edge digital design and merging it with art, Leica has teamed up with Italian fashion label Moncler to produce a truly stunning version of the Leica X (Typ 133) that embraces the design firm's French heritage and melds perfectly with Leica's precise German engineering. The brilliant design and imaging capabilities make this special edition a perfect partner for the fashion-conscious and photography minded. Only 1,500 of these cameras have been produced, each with a matching case and padded white pouch that emulate the look of Moncler's world-famous down jackets. And, the included leather carrying strap bears a "Leica & Moncler" inscription. 16.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor Packing in a larger 16.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor into a compact point-and-shoot body, the Leica X is able to balanced excellent image quality with sensitivities up to ISO 12500 and portability. The size of the sensor will create sharp, highly detailed imagery and allow users to capture images with shallow depth-of-field. Leica Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens Providing photographers with the perspective of an iconic 35mm lens with the APS-C sensor, the fixed Leica Summilux 23mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens will appeal to many with its outstanding quality and fast f/1.7 maximum aperture. This lens also features a physical focusing ring for exacting control during manual focus and can focus as close as 7.9". The lens is also optimized to minimize aberrations with a 10 element in 8 group design that incorporates two aspherical elements. Fast Operation Autofocus and continuous shooting greatly benefit from the speedy processing of the Leica X (Typ 113). Up to 11 AF points are available for rapidly locking onto your subjects and the camera can shoot continuously at speeds up to 5 fps for 7 frames.

Audio recorded via the internal mic benefits from an integrated wind-cut filter to ensure clarity. Videos can be saved in the Internet-friendly MP4 format and uploaded directly to mobile devices or social media sites without conversion. Additionally, users will be able to watch their creations on a larger screen via the built-in HDMI-out connection. 3.0" 920k-Dot TFT LCD Used for composition and image review, the 3.0" 920k-dot TFT LCD located on the rear of the camera offers bright, vivid colors with a wide viewing angle for clear images from all sides. This interface also provides 100% coverage, so you will always know exactly what you are going to get. DNG File Recording Maximize your post-processing capabilities by recording in the raw DNG file format, which provides increased data and latitude for pushing images later on. This also allows users to dial in color without relying on previously compressed data and ensuring that they are delivering the best image possible. Body Design Made in Germany with an aluminum and magnesium design, this sleek camera offers the durability and beauty expected from Leica's long legacy of camera design.

  6. Hi, This is a question about why is the R 35mm Summilux priced quite high on the second hand markets? The second hand prices for R lenses is of course regulated by supply and demand and tend to be lower than their M counterparts. There are the rare lenses of which few were made (I think 35-70/2.8) so these go for many thousands above original price. Others have a unique character or performance (80 and ROM 50 Summiluxes) and were always high in price. The 35mm Summilux, when I bought it as my first lens to replace my hated 28-70 was cheap and was in the hundreds of pounds (certainly far less in relation to the ROM 50 Summilux). Although the reviews were that it was a mediocre lens, I loved it. Even more on the DMR where it was more equivalent to my favourite 50mm view. I see these now on sale for very high prices equivalent to the ROM 50mm, why is that? I am not interested in selling mine though. From whom is the demand for this lens?

    I am selling my black Leica CL along with lenses, case, grip and adapter. Prices of individual items: Leica CL (case, grip, batteries etc): USD 2000 Super Vario Elmar 11-23: USD 1600 <---- the SVE has been spoken for. Payment pending. Summilux 35/1.4 USD 1800 L-Adapter M: USD 240 Reasonable offers especially on more than one item considered. The camera in excellent condition along with Leica half case (brown) and a the CL grip (cannot be used in conjunction. The camera works flawless - I never had any issue with it whatsoever. The number of exposes is probably slightly above 1000. The camera has been updated to Fotos compatible firmware. External look is almost spotless except one or two very minor marks only visible under close inspection. Two additional batteries are included (one original Leica, one third party). I have purchased the CL new in December 2017, thus the camera has got Leica warranty until December this year. For the lenses and the adapter, I was not able to spot any marks but won’t completely exclude the possible existence of minimal traces under extremely close inspection. I have purchased the lenses new in December/January 2017, thus the lens has got Leica warranty until December this year. This is a private sale so any warranty / guarantee requests have to be dealt with Leica directly (on request I can add a copy of the purchase receipt). Payment can either be done through Paypal or Bank transfer. No additional costs for the buyer. Shipping outside of Switzerland at cost +-. US/Europe would be around CHF 40 per parcel (2kg). Please take note some countries add customs to imported used cameras and lenses. Pickup of items in person possible, but it has to be in Zürich.

    Up for sale is a used Leica Summilux 24mm F/1.4 as I do not use this focal length so often. I am the only owner and user of the lens. Despite the imperfections it is in perfect working order, as intended. Condition: There are small usage marks on the black paint on the barrel from regular use. Please refer to images. The metal lens hood is very slightly bent near the ventilation mark, see images. Under close inspection the glass have some very minor marks on what seems to be on the very surface of the lens, on the outer coating on the glass. The marks only appear when held on certain angles towards the light which meant that I had difficulty with photographing them to this post. I would like to stress out that under no circumstances do this appear on images, no matter the lighting conditions. Perfect user condition lens. The lens only comes with front and rear caps. The price is 3500 USD. Offers are welcome 50 USD for world wide air parcel. This item is sold from Greenland. I am not responsible for buyers country import taxes or custom regulation.

    I am looking for a Summilux M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH black chrome edition lens. I have a like new Rolleiflex FW with W-Apogon 4/50 lens to trade. This is the exact same lens as the Schneider Super Angulon 4/50 with HFT multicoating used on early production FW cameras, with the name changed for licensing reasons. From the serial number, I believe the camera is from very late, near the end of their production of TLR cameras. Probably 2012. The styling and black leatherette covering are the same as used on the last model Rollei/DHW made, the highly collectible FX-N. A new original strap is included. The camera has seen very little and careful use. Comes with box, manual and inspection certificate. Great camera, but want to get back into Leica M. I also have a near new Rollei lens shade and a new Rollei/DW Photo 45-degree prism available for the camera. The camera was purchased from Shouten Select. The prism was purchased from Leica Store Lisse/Photo Henny Hoogeveen. Images of the camera are used with permission from Marco at Schouten. I can send more details and new images.

  11. I have recently got my 75mm Summilux back from service because of back focusing. It is a bit better, but still far from perfect. At a distance of one meter, the focus is very good. But at three meters the focus is about 10 cm behind. And the back focusing increases even more at longer distances. Is this a well known problem for this lens? Shouldn't it be possible to get a better result, or is a visoflex the only safe alternative for accurate focus? I will mainly use this lens wide open. Would it be easier to calibrate it for f/1.4 only, instad of all apertures? Do I have to pay for another service if I am not satisfied?

  14. Dear Friends, I found really strange that apeture ring on Summilux 35 1.4 ASPH moves really fast and without FIX on apeture. Does it really have to work like this or it's not? Thanks for your replies. BR, Yermek
  15. I have recently bought a used Summilux 50mm. The serial number starts 250..., so I think it's from around 1972. It's been working fine since May on M9, M6 and CL (with adapter). Using today on M-D and the focus and aperture rings are starting to stick when focus nears infinity. Put simply, if I'm at around f8, then move focus towards infinity, the rings 'catch' and turning the focus starts to turn the aperture at the same pace, moving it up (from, say, f8 to f11). Anyone else had this happen. If no easy fix then I have a 12 month warranty, but it would be a shame to lose it for a few weeks. thank you
  16. Hi Long story, but I somehow wound up with a 35mm 1.4 ASPH Summilux-M (the 11 874 version) and a 35mm 1.4 ASPH Summilux-M (the 11 663 version). The 11874 was my favorite lens, but now I prefer the 11663. I don't need the money right now, and it's not really taking up appreciable space in my apartment, but it seems to be selling for $4000 or so on auction - which is actually more than I paid for it back in the 90's. Is the general consensus that used lens prices will continue to increase ? Or should I sell it now while I can ? Thanks ! (this was mistakenly posted to the M 240 forum; sorry about that)

  19. There are certain Leica Summilux 35 1.4 non ASPH lenses that are incompatible with the M8 or M9. I have one that is made in Canada. I looked everywhere to find clues on how to fix the issue. I found little pieces of information and I wanted to do everyone else a favor by taking a video of how I resolved the issue. First, to test if you have a problem - Set the focus to 3 feet (not to infinity). Mount the lens into your M8 or M9. Move the focus ring toward infinity GENTLY. If you feel resistance before infinity - stop. You have the issue. Now, to unmount, backup your focus ring to 3 feet again and then dismount. If you have the issue, do not try to mount the lens while focus is set to infinity. Bad. The problem - There is a shroud that sticks out (a black piece of aluminum highlighted in my video) at the back of the lens. This shroud increases in height as you move to infinity. The M8 and M9 body is preventing that shroud to further stick out while moving to infinity. I have highlighted in the video exactly which part of the shroud is hitting. I also show how I've done the job myself of shaving 1mm off the shroud to allow the focus to get to infinity without obstruction. There are illustrations that say measure 7mm from the bottom of the ring to measure exactly how much to shave, but my video shows what I've done and it works for me. I'm now a happy camper. Happy enough to share what I did. PS: I did not show it but I did tape the lens glass to protect it while I was grinding the shroud with my dremel tool. Here is the video for future adventurers: https://vimeo.com/275145377 Ronnie
  20. To all 24mm summilux owners, can you please share some best sharpness images at wide open. It would be great if you can also include two 10x magnified samples, one at the center and one at the corner.
  21. Still in love with my M3 but processing film feels more and more taxing as the years pass. I have been unable to find clean and clear answers to my question: can I use my old Summilux 50/f1.4, Summaron 35/f2.8 and newer Voigtländer 21/f4 on a Monochrom body? The switch is tenting but as I work mostly on a volunteer basis these days and cost is an issue.

  24. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a type II Summilux 35mm and when I shine a light through the front I can see very clearly a large grouping of tiny bubbles and what looks like a streak of some kind opposite of it inside the lens. The coating on the front and rear are clean and the aperture blades are clean, and I can only see these when I tilt the lens in the light. When I shine a light through the lens it is very apparent. Can anyone explain what I'm seeing here? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
