  1. I have a question about choosing the right 28 mm M lens for landscape photography. If it has been asked in other posts already, I apologise in advance. Background I have decided to buy a 28mm for my M240. It will be used for landscape photography almost exclusively. For the first time in my life, I am leaning towards an Elmarit ASPH. However, I always have this nagging inner voice telling me, that Summilux and Summicron are the only ways to go no matter the situation. So before buying, I want to make sure that I will not be compromising on any key aspects important to me with
  2. 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
  3. Hi all, a while ago I've bought a used Elmarit-M 90mm (latest version) for which I found a few days ago by accident that the aperture blades do not fully disappear when the lens is used wide open. Consequently, the bokeh balls aren't circular, but have a more "saw blade"-like shape. If I turn the aperture ring beyond 2.8, which is possible by a tiny bit, the blades retract a bit more, but never completely (cp. attached images). As I wasn't sure whether this is by design or a defect, I have contacted Leica Support and they tell me that this is the normal behaviour, but offer a CLA fo
  4. Something I consider to be a glaring omission from Leica's current M-lens line-up is a light, compact, 35mm lens. Or am I missing something? F2.8 would be quite adequate considering the high ISOs available on the M10. The target market would be those for whom minimum size and weight is a major actor, plus those seeking a lower cost entry into the world of Leica M. As it is, Voigtlander offer just such a lens, though the reviews are mixed. I assume such a lens would be called an Elmarit, as the code seems to be Elmar -f4.0 Elmarit f2.8 -chron f2.0 -lux f1.4 or fast
  5. Hi! My Leica M10 and some lenses got stolen yesterday in Gothenburg. If anyone sees them, I would be grateful. To moderator, if this is the wrong place to post, please move it.

  6. Hello guys , I just bought a 21mm Elmarit f2.8 lens (the old one) for my Leica MP Typ 240. Really enjoyed the lens. I just noticed that its min focus distance is 0.7 while i read on the internet that you can find a version that focus at 0.38. Any other differences between the two lenses ? Somebody here have experience with the close focus version ? I took some Street Pictures and wrote a little article for my blog: www.walkingphotographer.net/blog/21mm-street-photography Thanks for your time ! Eolo www.walkingphotographer.net
  7. Hey guys, together with Sailronin (Dave) here from the forum, we manage the 70mm Summarit-S lens group, this gave me the idea to start one for every lens: Super-Elmar-S 24mm Elmarit-S 30mm Summarit-S 35mm Elmarit-S 45mm Summarit-S 70mm Summicron-S 100mm Apo-Macro-Summarit-S 120mm Ts-Apo-Elmar-S 120mm Apo-Elmar-S 180mm Vario-Elmar-S 30-90mm Become a member of the groups you have lenses for, or just browse the groups of lenses you are interested in or maybe want to get to see some samples. Please since the groups are new, add photos to the once you've taken photos with so th
  8. Hi, I am in the market for a used 90mm M. What are your experiences with those two lenses - which one would you recommend and why? Used price are somewhat similar... And what about 75mm 2.5 Summarit. I read about some people saying 75 Summarit is brilliant, but at the same time they didn't like 90mm 2.5 Summarit that much. Any help is welcome. Thanks / Alex
  9. Hey guys I wrote a short article about the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm ASPH. You can read it here: Review: Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f2.8 ASPH. - Jip van Kuijk Please leave your thoughts here or in the comment section on my website.
  10. Hallo, ich bin sicher, dass das Thema schon mal behandelt wurde, kann es aber nicht finden. Bitte entschuldigt, falls ich damit nerve. Also: Ich überlege, für meine Leica Monochrom und die M7 ein 28 'er zu kaufen. In der Auswahl ist das Summicron 2,0/28mm Asph. und das Elmarit 2,8/28mm Asph. Einsatzzweck soll hauptsächlich Street Fotografie sein. Also eher schnelles handeln und kleinere Blende (8). Die geringere bzw. höhere Schärfentiefe spielt also keine so große Rolle und der Unterschied zwischen beiden beträgt immerhin 1900 €. Zu welchem Objektiv würdet ihr mir r
  11. This topic of 90mm lenses have been discussed many times I know. But I thought I should contribute too, with my own post and some findings. With my quest to get a Leica mount portrait lens for my Sony A7ii camera, I visited red dot cameras in London. I tried various lenses as below 1) 80 Lux-R (similar to 75 lux it is said) 2) 100/2.8 APO-R 3) 90 elmarit-m 4) 90 Summicron-m (non APO) 5) 90/4 macro elmar m I attach a collage of pictures (raw, unprocessed) made with maximum aperture of each lens, except number 2. Unfortunately, I did not like elmarit, you can see why from
  12. I'm selling my 21mm Super Angulon f/4 M mount in favor of something a little more "practical". While in Cuba earlier this year, I found myself using the Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 on my Contax G2 quite a bit but for my next few trips, I'll bring only a couple of M bodies (M7 & Typ 246). I really love the results that I got out of my Zeiss and am wondering if I should go with another Zeiss (25mm f/2.8 or 28mm f/2.8) OR a new-ish 28mm Elmarit ASPH. So my two questions are "is the Elmarit ASPH quality worth more than double the price of a used Zeiss 25mm or 28mm?" and "In order to keep my work consiste
  13. I just got an Elmarit 28mm V4 lens e46 that came without any protection. Can anyone tell em which front cap will fit the lens. I have also red about the lens hood and some people said the R hood version fits with the 28mm M version ? Thanks for your response PL

  17. Hola everyone! I had a hunch! And I made a lens exchange with a colleague. I changed my Elmarit 28mm for a Zeiss C Biogon T 35mm F2.8. Of course, I got also some very good money because of the difference in price ($2,300 vs $900 approx). I tested already and I'm incredibly happy with the result. I'm new in the world of Rangefinder, I only owned an Elmarit for one year, and now this one. I always used lenses for SLR and DSLR. So I'm very newbie. I was so surprised (in a very good way) about the Zeiss contrast, details, sharpening and almost the lack of imperfections... Wow
  18. Dear Leica community, relatively new to the Leica M world I am thinking about adding a 90mm to my yet small set of glass (50mm Summarit, 35mm Summicron Asph.), especially to take on a 3 months South America trip. I use an M9-P (and a D-Lux 5 as back-up). I read a lot in this forum, blogs, Ken Rockwell/Steve Huff (I know!) etc and my thoughts are as follows: (1) Tele Elmarit (thin) is the smallest and lightest and, therefore, prone to serve as a travel companion. (2) Tele Elmarit is (i) wide open a little bit inferior in terms of optics and (ii) stopped down to f4 equal to the
  19. I am a new Leica M9 user and I bought my camera with a 50mm Summicron f/2. Doing a lot of travelling I felt last week in Chicago that I really need to go wide when shooting skylines, architecture and interiors (it was the art museum). In two weeks I will go to India and I really want something before that trip. I have been thinking of both the Super Elmar M 21mm and the Elmarit M 28mm ASPH and I am going back and forth between them. I am quite well aware of the positives and negatives of them but cannot make up my mind! What would be the recommendation from you using these lenses today i
  20. Hallo, ich möchte mich gerne von meiner Leica Sammlung trennen und habe deshalb die M6, ein Summicron-M 2/35 , ein Elmarit-M 2,8/90 und ein Noctilux 1:1,2/50mm zur Überprüfung an den Leica Customer Service eingeschickt. Ergebnis ist, das für das Austauschen des Entfernungsmessers und Reinigen der M6 fast 600 € berechnet werden. Für die beiden Objektive mit neu fetten, Optik reinigen und neu justieren werden jeweils knapp 400 € veranschlagt. An das Noctilux traut sich "keiner" ran. Ist auch kein Wunder das Teil ist wie neu und wurde nur 1-2 mal verwendet. Meine Frage lohnt sich eine

    This young nephew is studying to be a lawyer. It was an overcast evening and I just managed this with an Elmarit 90 wide open at 1/30 sec. on ASA 200 film.
  22. Die Belederung -eigentlich ist es ja wohl kein Leder sondern eher eine Art Gummi- meines Elmarit 90mm ist auf einer Laenge von ca 3 cm in einem ganzen Stueck abgebrochen. Es sieht so aus als habe der Vorbesitzer dies schon mal geflickt weil das offenliegende schwarze Metall klebrige Spuren hat. Vielleicht war ein Papierkleber o.a. benutzt worden. Soll ich dies mit Superkleber kleben oder Uhu oder...? Vielen Dank fuer jeden Ratschlag! (als Newbie hoffe ich hier im richtigen Forumsteil geposted zu haben, wenn nicht bitte ich um Korrektur)
  23. I can't choose between Elmar 24 3.8 or Elmarit 28mm 2.8 Who has used both and know what lens is better, I know this is a dull question since it depends on what I'll be doing with it... but just in regular which do you think is a better companion for my M8?
  24. Hi. Sorry, I don't mean to re-hash old discussions. I have read numerous threads on 21mm Elmarit vs. 24mm Elmarit issue (as well as 21mm Elmarit vs. 21mm Summilux issue) but just cannot come to a conclusion on the matter. I am looking for a wide angle lens to add to my arsenal of 50mm Lux and 35mm Cron both of which I am very happy with (but I just feel the need to go wide at certain times). I have used the 21mm Elmarit (both pre-asph and asph) and am aware of the issues of loss of shapness and dark edges when wide open as well as some distortions but still think it is a neat lens (actu
  25. Most of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors. Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike. I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio. Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.
