  1. 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.

    StayAtHomeWithLEICA SL 2 - Summarit-M 2,5/75
  3. Hello everyone! I'm new to the leica film cameras but I came up a rather very nice iiif in great condition which comes with a summarit 50mm f1.5 going for about $550. This sounded like a pretty good deal to me, however, upon closer inspection the lens seemed to have a lot of haze (not sure about fungus) as when I performed the light test there were specks everywhere. It seemed to be internal and in the second glass?? Not sure how to fix it or if I even can, also the focus ring was pretty stiff (but that isn't a deal breaker or anything). Like I said, the body of the camera was in very good condition however the lens is my biggest concern. As most of you are owners/experts and such please help me out and let me know if this is a good deal or not. Thanks, Ashley
  4. Dear All, I just bought a Leica M9 and have been testing it out only to find a thing red line appearing on the right hand side of all my photographs. Sample attached. Does anyone know why this is happening? Also, my viewfinder is a bit strange. When I am using it I am able to align the ghost square over the square, but other times I have nothing to align meaning when I am looking through the viewfinder i see what is in front of me only. I have to take a couple of unfocused pics to get the focus point to appear again or switch off/on the camera. Has this happened to anyone before?
  5. 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 the groups will soon turn alive! Not that the 70mm lens group is 'owned' by Sailronin, and moderated by me as well hence me sharing it here.
  6. I spotted this lady in a small village in Kephalonia, Greece. Wearing a face mask is common in Japan to stop the spread of germs but I've never seen this in Greece. Mask by Robert Michael Poole, on Flickr M9 50mm Summarit.
  7. Just a question about my M6 and Summarit. I either never noticed or I never had a lens/camera combination do this so I thought I'd ask the pros. When I focus on something very very far away (Like an airliner at 30,000 feet for example) the viewfinder says it's not in focus when the lens is slammed all the way to infinity, but just a degree or two right before infinity. I'm not sure if this is normal or not, I can't remember any lens or camera ever doing this, but then this is the first 35mm summarit I've had and the first time I've used a fully CLA'd Leica camera also.
  8. The photo was taken by Summarit 50mm f1.5 on Sony A7 at Fa Yuen Street, Hong Kong. "Fa Yuen" means garden in local language. It is a street-side market with stalls selling fresh fruit and low cost clothing and apparels. It attracts tourists. The photo was taken by in an early morning when most stalls were still closed. You may check out my other photos at BigBigLens.com - Leica.
  9. Hello guys, I've got this question, when you buy a summarit or R lens new the rubber on the focussing ring is usually black-black... but after a while it usually turns greyish at some parts... Now my question is is there some 'product' that can give the rubber back its blackness. My idea is that it turns 'white/greyish' when it 'dries' out... or something... Now I really don't know nothing about rubber, or plastic rubbers. So please enlighten me! Thanks!
  10. 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
  11. I own both the Summarit and the Summitar. I like the swirl bokeh of Summitar better. What do you think?
  12. laut Gerüchteseite List of new Leica Summarit M lenses to be announced at Photokina | Leica News & Rumors wird auf der PK 2014 eine neue Summaritserie vorgestellt: Beim 35er bin ich gespannt (hier dürfte eine Neu rechnung vorliegen ? ) bei dem Wechsel der Lichtstärke von 2.5 -> 2.4 vermute ich eher Marketing. Trotzdem Dienstag (abend?) wissen wir mehr
  13. Hi All, Whitch one to buy? I can get them both for the same price. I intend to use only one lens for my M9, so who will give best overall performance? Rgds

  16. I've compared a few classical Leitz/Zeiss lenses at the NEX-5N - maybe someone ist interested: NEX-5N and classical 50mm Zeiss / Leitz lenses 1) Leitz Elmar 5cm 1:3.5, uncoated (1936) 2) Zeiss Jena Sonnar LTM 5 cm 1:1.5, coated (1941) 3) Leitz Summarit 5cm 1:2, coated (1952) 4) Zeiss Jena Biotar 5.8cm 1:2, cooated (1953) 5) Zeiss Jena Tessar 5cm 1:2.8, coated (1956) 6) Zeiss Planar ZM 2/50mm (2005) 7) Zeiss C-Sonnar ZM 1.5/50mm (2005) I'ts just a small comparison - but better than nothing. If someone of the native english speaking could correct my terrible English i would be more than glad - just send me a message via "contact" at artaphot.ch, including the corrected text. I will insert it as soon as possible. Stephan
  17. The Summarit 5cm f/1.5 is one of those "You never know what will happen" lenses at night with any light source near the frame. This young lady from Boise, ID was kind enough to pose in the cold while I clumsily framed and focus this shot with the gorgeous little iiif. Portra 400. Leica iiif.

  18. I bought a "like new" M6 TTL last week (serial number denotes a 1999 model) with only three rolls run through it and have fallen head over heels in love with it. Problem is, the 50mm Summarit that I've been using on my M8 will not mount correctly to it. The lens will fit into the mount but will not twist and lock. The issue is particularly strange in that the lens mounts and focuses perfectly on my M8 and Voigtlander R4a as well as my friends' M3's, M2's, and M4's. Furthermore, all lenses that I've used on my M6; 50mm Summilux, 50mm Summicron, 35mm Summicron, 75mm Summilux, an older collapsible 50mm and even my voigtlander, zeiss and konica lenses mount and focus perfectly. I suppose I should mention that the Leica hood that I bought for the Summarit fit's a tad crooked (very slightly diagonal to the horizontal body lines on whatever camera I've mounted it to) but I can't imagine this having anything to do with the issue I'm having with the M6 as it has mounted just fine to other cameras, crooked hood or not. I know every company makes mistakes some times but this is really bugging me.
  19. Hi All, I'm a bit new here or rather I've lurked here for a very long time without posting. I've tried searching a bit, but I can't seem to find anything on the specific question I have or perhaps I'm searching poorly I currently have a chrome 50mm Summilux pre-asph that I am using on a M3 and M7, but as it's well documented this lens has a bit of a classic look to its rendering and at times lacks the micro contrast and corner sharpness of modern designs and do love the look of the lens. The classic rendering is a big part of why I haven't upgraded to an ASPH version. I do a lot of portraiture and this look is very forgiving in that scenario. I've used this lens for about 3 years now so I feel pretty comfortable with its look overall. That being said, there are quite a few occasions where I would like a bit more of a modern rendering. I think I like the modern rending for a lot of the non portrait everyday type uses. So I am wondering if there are any users here who currently field a pre asph summilux and an additional 50mm lens as a complement in other situations. I am seriously considering the 50mm summarit 2.4 as my second lens. I have heard that it has a way of rendering that is a bit classic and modern at the same time and has a smaller footprint. Does anyone an opinion on using the older lux and summarit as a sibling lens? For reference I have also used the 50mm DR summicron(Loved the handling and sharpness, but it was similarly classic to my summilux) and the 50mm Zeiss Planar f/2(liked the lens, but didn't care for the handling) Thanks so much!
  20. Whilst walking through Lido Di Jesolo after a day out over summer I just so happened to be in the right place at the right time. The light streamed through a gap in the buildings diffusing the fountains with a beautiful golden light. Just at the moment a young girl decided to cool off.

  21. Hey guys! I spent 6 weeks in NYC basically just taking pictures ... mostly street, but also Landscape and People ... I mostly used my M9 and 35mm Summilux ASPH (pre FLE) wide open and sometimes my S (006) and 70mm Summarit. If I don't comment which combo I used, it'll be the M9 35Lux combo... Feel free to comment and critique I'm not a pro and I just do stuff the way I like it .. so not everything is perfect... Here are a couple of shots from the End of July .. some of the best sunsets I have ever seen.
  22. Morris dancing is a traditional folk dance from England and dates back hundreds of years. The dancers dance traditional jigs usually wearing bells and ribbons. It's thought the Morris comes from Moorish and they were imitating North Africa/Spanish dances. As you can see from the images, most of the dancers are older and it is thought that Morris dancing could die out. Though there has been a revival apparently with Neopagan Morris dancers and the 'Dark Morris' which comes from a Discworld novel!

  23. Good morning, From time to time I like to give myself a project to try and enhance my craft and keep me interested. This year my project is street portraits. It definitely puts one outside of one's comfort zone. My approach is simple, I look around for interesting characters, approach them and ask can I take their portrait. I have only been declined once (a nun who was praying) it is disappointing but important to respect this even when it means missing a fantastic shot! Most people are actually really happy to be asked, I like to chat a little whilst I am shooting to set people at ease and get more relaxed photos. People have even thanked me for taking time to talk to them which is really nice. I always show them the shot after on the LCD and tell them my website address to see the image later. I'm thinking of having some business cards printed to make this easier. I like to shoot wide open to get separation. One of the staff at Leica Store Manchester gave me the tip of focusing on the eye then moving your head slightly back and forward to find focus rather than use the ring (I'm sure people already know this but i thought it was a good tip). I like to shoot half a dozen frames whilst doing this to ensure focus is on the eye not slightly out. Though I do sometimes miss shots still and kick myself afterwards Anyway, here is one from a rather wet day in Kendal in the Lake District UK Street Portrait Kendal by Robert Michael Poole, on Flickr C/C always welcome. Thanks for looking Rob More street portraits can be seen on my website here: https://robertpoolephotography.com/portfolio/street-portraits/
  24. Hi all, How good is Biogon-C 35 2.8 on M240? Being conceived for film / crop sensors, is there any color cast and/or corner smearing used on full frame digital? And how is compared to Summarit 2.4/35 and 2.5/35? By the way, I've seen MTF figures between 2.4 and 2.5 and they seem slight different, 2.4 seems to be less sharp in center but sharper in the corners than its 2.5 predecessor. Anyone who tried both? How they compares to last (v5/v6) Summicron, that I know quite well? Thanks in advance S.
  25. Hello everyone, recently I purchase a brand new 35mm summarit-m 2.5 online, and discover there are a ring of "gray metal dots" around the lens barrel. Have anyone of you notice this? I am also waiting for Leica to get back to me, but I like to know if this is part of the lens design or something, maybe glue the lenses together to the barrel? I put the lens under light and can see it really clearly all around the lens barrel. Thank you for your feedback. kenh
