I put a few photos here for what it's worth: http://www.jupitersnake.com/random/35-summilux-t-thoughts/

 

I think that's a fair viewpoint. I think some perspective is in order, though. The lens has beautiful rendering, but compared to its Leica brethren, it's not unique or spectacular. Compared to other lenses, especially APS-C lenses it is lovely.

 

But yes, it's crazy expensive. Especially since they raised the price $400 after launch.

any more images / experience with the lens?

I am planning to get one and interested in any comments. 

 

 

Hello Tom,

in case you would like to see full size samples or different subjects, please contact me via pm as i don't want to showcase all images publicly.

 

Best regards,

Hi Tom,

i've used the lens quite a lot, 75% of my images since i bought it are shot with the 35mm f/1.4

It's safe to say that this is the most versatile lens for the T system and the best 35mm prime for APS-C sensors. I usually stop it down a bit for maximum performance and a slightly larger focus area, but it is already excellent wide open.

AF is fast and precise and handling is great, even with the hood attached.

+1 here. While I love the 18-56 zoom, I don't use it at the long end because of its slow aperture and more temperamental autofocus there (indoors). I forgot how much I enjoy the 50mmn FOV, previously sticking instead to the wide end of the zoom or using the 23mm.

 

The 35mm Summilux is an awesome lens! It's become my go-to lens, despite its larger size. Focus is fast and it handles really well, especially with the half-case (which gives more to grip, and hence better balance). Moreover, it is incredibly sharp, has beautiful bokeh and classic Leica colors and microcontrast. An A+ lens for sure.

Thanks guys for making me spend a lot of money on another lens (35 TL). I will receive my copy next week.

The images you posted look great and I like the normal focal length a lot. 

Is the hood included? I will see if I can find a more compact hood anyways, the original is too large for my taste.

Hood is included but it's way to big for my liking. The only thing to watch for is chromatic aberration when used wide open against back lighting. Hood won't help there but post processing does.

 

Enjoy the lens. It's a beauty. Sharpness and depth of field control is really great.

      I found this Carl Zeiss Jena lens for Leica SM (M39) at a flea market. This is what I could find about it:
      The Herar should be cheaper opportunity to the Carl Zeiss Biogon. It was originally produced for the Contax mount. The lens was produced around 500-1000 times. The one i found appears to be a prototype/sample for the Leica screw mount M39. It has a connection for the range finder and the aperture can be controlled with the front ring of the lens. It was produced before 1939. 
      I hope I got everything right.
      My two questions:
      Are the infos are all right (age, Version etc.)
      and since inform own a Leica with drew Mount I want to sell it. What is the right price? (I only found two offers online both around 3000usd, is it really worth that much?) 
      I also read that one was sold at a Auction at Christies in 1992. 
      I’m very thankful for any held or answer ✌🏻

      Hi there. Couple of days ago I decided to try some LTM glass on my Leica MP and bought a new Fotodiox 50/75 adapter. While it worked perfectly I was surprised and mostly heart broken to see that the mid line of the lens mount had been scratched on my beloved camera which I saved for such a long time to buy. The scratch is superficial as far as I can see and on the 4,5,6 and 7 o'clock directions (The photo which I share on here doesn't do them justice. They are more visible than what looks like here). I didn't have time to develop my film so I cannot say if it damaged the mount on funtional level. But I want to learn your experiences with similar situations if you had any. I read that these things can happen even when you use native lenses on cameras but as far as I know for the last 9 months my Voigtlander 35mm f/2 Ultron didn't damage or let alone scratch the lens mount on my MP. I reattached my Voigtlander after experiencing this situation and shooting another roll of film with it to see if there is any problem. Is there a possibility that I damaged my camera functionally? Can my Voigtlander be attached to the lens mount securely and without further damage either to the lens mount or the lens itself? What are you thoughts on Fotodiox adapters? The adapter that I bought seems that it is made of a material that is not similar to the material that Leica uses on its mount. I would be grateful to read your thoughts. Thanks in advance.
