A couple I shot on my M9 and Noctilux F1 version 1 (E58), wide open at F1. Don't have either the M9 or the Noctilux any more. I don't miss the M9, but I often wish I still had the Noctilux.

honestly, most of the pictures could have been taken with an iphone

 

Many photos with a wide angle , high depth of field could have been taken with an iphone, the lens looks like  28-35mm. The brand boasted an exhibition even with 2*3 meter prints (even though the coulours and forms are there the pictures were rather thin.) I am glad the general toning of the iphone is OK and within standards and the apple screens render magnificently. 

BUT  they would have a different IQ

 

The reason why I tend to agree at times with you is quite different:

the rendering of pictures on this forum of directly uploaded photos is limited to a small pixelcount and compression as such may a make picture indistinguishable from a bland phone photo. To make a pun, some photos are rather phoney. I struggle with that aspect, sometimes my uploaded pictures of 450k reduce to an awkward 60-70k. I ave put more attention to this and I ope my workflow is improving.

The best way to avoid iPhone-look, is to use as small depth of field as possible. This picture is taken with Noctilux f/1.0, and could not have been taken with an iPhone:

I have an iPhone X and thought that I could get away with using it for a get together. I like the Live Photo feature, but the highlights were blown, and the wide angle doesn’t give flattering portraits and colours were unimpressive. An example of a cliche that turns out to be untrue.

75 Summilux-M, M9

A man and his cat or maybe is it the other way round?

I'm usually not into pet photography but the encounter

was rather uncommon, this cat was bigger than some children

and was walked in the street laying in an horizontal stroller.

Too bad it was impossible to lean back a few centimetres more…

      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.

      Hi!
       
      I've been smitten by images I have seen online made by the 75mm Summilux and have recently found one in mint condition for a decent price. Before I decide to sneak another lens into my house... does anyone have any thoughts, reviews, comments or experience they can share with this lens? Love it? Hate it? Any quirks? Any examples of photos you have taken with it to push me over the edge?
       
      Thanks so much!
      Mike

      Some time ago I started a blog (www.mbphotox.wordpress.com) about adapted 50mm lenses on my Canon DSLR. A Leica 50 was on my wishlist for half a year and when I finally went out to buy one, I came home with an Elmarit-R 135mm f/2.8 because the Cron had been picked up by another guy right before I arrived at the store.
       
      A few months later, I found a great offer online and bought an Elmarit-R 28mm and finally also the Summicron-R 50mm I had been looking for.
       
      Having three lenses, I figured "why not get back into shooting film?", and so I started looking for a suitable Leica R body.
       
      The SL2 was not an option since all my lenses are R-only, and the R6 was simply too damn expensive. R3 to R5 it was..
       
      I stumbled upon this expensive offer that had been online for weeks, by a guy who wanted to sell his pristine Summicron-R 90mm together with a near-mint Leica R5...
       
      I ended up talking him down by 20% and bought the package

      Loaded a roll of Superia 200 last night and am looking forward to the results.
       
       
      Here are some pics (more can be found on the blog)
       
      The baseplate shows slight signs of wear, the brass shines through at some areas, but other than that it's perfect.

      My lenses, without the 90mm, I've still got to take pictures of that one. But it only arrived 2 days ago.
