Hello, I'm wondering if someone uses this lens on Leica Monochrom and can give me some advice. I was not happy with my Summicron 50mm collabsible on my Monochrom because of blury pics in the center. For those who wonder the front lens is in perfect condition. So I send it to Leica Service in Wetzlar. The repair would cost 520€. Now I'm wondering if someone can give me some example pictures of this lesns (in better shape) on the Monochrom, so that I can decide if I'll invest this amount of mony or if I save it for a later version of the Summicron. Thanks!
Hi there, I bought a 50mm collapsible Summicron #116.... last week. The lens is in a very good condition. However, after shooting with it today I realized that the aperture ring is just a bit to stiff to turn nicely while looking throuhg the viewfinder. I did a quick search on the web for some repair instructions but couldn't find any. Does somebody know what to do to relube the aperture ring? By the way, do all of the 50mm Crons have such a long focus throw (I do only have the 35mm Ver. IV for comparison). One more thing I noticed is that the aperture index mark of the lens is not centered when looking from the top and the lens is mounted, uncollapsed and the front turned to shooting position. The aperture dot is slightly on the left... Is this the way it is designed? Thanks! Kind regards Gregor
