  1. 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
  2. Hi everyone, I just purchased this lens to shoot on both film and digital, I read forum posts and reviews online, but there's way more information on the V2 / V3 than the V1, which makes sense since this lens only lasted two years so not a lot of people out there actually using it I guess? I mostly bought this lens to shoot portraits and complement my favorite lens of all time, the summicron 35mm 8 elements (also a v1 lens :p). I tried the 50mm summilux asph and pre-asph v2/v3 but didn't enjoy the rendering of the pre-asph v2/v3 that much, nor the size of the asph. I think I've trie
  3. I've found a good deal on a pre-asph 50 lux 1.4 (43). From what I understand, the 46 is optically the same as well. I was looking for some examples to evaluate sharpness wide open. I know the ASPH is where the sharp end is, but it's not in the budget, sadly. I'm just curious as to how sharp (or not sharp) the 43 version of the 50 lux is. I have the 50 Planar f/2 which I like, but I'm looking for something with a bit more low-light flexibility. I know the 50 lux won't compete wide-open in the sharpness department, I'm just curious how far off it is. I've searched through flickr, but it'
  4. 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!
  5. I received a copy of the summilux 35mm pre-asph lens and noticed that it lacked a shroud or any metal rim to protect the rear element. While a "overly" protruding shroud may prevent proper function on some cameras, the lack of any protective shroud makes me concerned that the rear element will eventually be damaged. Looking at the back of the lens, I would not risk setting it down on a flat surface, but this may occur at some point. I am concerned that there was a shroud present at some point, but it was removed. If the shroud was removed it would be difficult to replace assuming tha
  6. Hi, I have searched the forum for information on the V2 Summilux 50 that was sold with the M6 Traveler Series set. I have read elsewhere the lenses started with the serial numbers 34952xx, but I wondered if anyone here might know just what the first serial number was for this series. 3495200 perhaps? This is the chrome-plated brass 50/1.4 with the ridged, not knurled, focusing ring, and with external hood 12586. Thank you for any information you are willing to provide. -k
  7. Who's tried the Leica Summilux 50 PRE-ASPH Version II on an M240 ? Would you kindly share your experience (and maybe even some images)? I would sure like to know how this lens does with the new Leica M. I know Summilux 50 ASPH 1.4 is amazing - I've seen the pictures! And while I'm sure that the pre-asph ver 2 is not "as sharp" and perhaps doesn't have the contrast of the ASPH model ... there's just something about how the pre-asph lenses "draw" that is so compelling ... that and the painterly character of the bokeh they produce. I imagine the pre-asph lenses at 1.4 are less sharp
  8. Hi guys, I own an M9 and a 28 cron and I absolutely love the images I am getting from this combo. However lately, I came across a 50 Pre-ASPH Lux on one of the websites for £1300 so I am very tempted to swap my Cron for the pre-asph lux to have a try particularly the focal length. (50 lux asph would be ideal but thats out of budget!) So, I have been searching around the forums and obviously cant find any direct comparison since they are not the same focal length to start with anyway. So I was wondering, how much sharper the Cron will be compared to the 50mm Pre-ASPH.( I am assuming it is s

  10. I'm going on a hiking and want to shoot some velvia. I picked up my first Leica (M3) and I love it. I've shot about 18 rolls but only B+W. The only lens I have is a 50mm pre-asph Cron. Does anyone have any pictures posted with this combo? I want to get an idea of what I can expect. Any help is appreciated.
  11. I have a dear friend who is ailing and selling his Leica kit. Among the goodies is a pre ASPH 35mm titanium, German-made, 1.4 lens. I want to purchase the lens and want to offer him a fare market value. I've done a bit of searching and see the going rate to be around $1500. I'm just wondering if anyone can share any insight. The lens is in good shape. (I currently have a 35mm ASPH 'lux, but like the vintage aspect to this lens, as well as it's compact size.) Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated. For what it's worth, the lens will be used on my MP for largely black and white wo
  12. Hey Guys. I'm wondering what the physical differences between the two. And if anybody can provide me with the information on how to tell the two apart by looking at the serial numbers, that would be much appreciated, thanks!
  13. Hallo, ich stehe kurz davor, mir eine M8 zuzulegen. Nach nunmehr zwei Wochen Rundschau durchs Netz und unter Berücksichtigung meiner bisherigen Erfahrungen und Gewohnheiten steht eigentlich als Hauptobjektiv das 2/35 Summicron fest. Bei allem Respekt vor der Leistung und dem Preis des Summarits schreckt mich aber dessen Anfangsöffnung f2.5 ab. Nun denke ich als zweites Objektiv zuerst über ein 50mm nach. (Ein 24 oder 28er wird irgendwann sicher auch folgen, das Summarit 75 kitzelt mich auch, aber ich muss nicht alles auf einmal machen.) Um auf den Punkt zu kommen: Ich könnte mi
