Very nice! What camera body did you use?

 

Good to to see an R-lens resurgence thread.

I've only got the 50 Summicron-R v2 so am not fit to post here.

 

Regards,

Mark

I was using Sony A7 to take the pictures.

I'm thinking of buying a First gen A7 just for my Leica Summilux-R 1:1,4/80mm

Should be a good combination; R lenses especially the longer focal lengths can produce fine images with Sony A series - provided you can focus OK . However, I could not get on with a Sony A7R (shutter vibration … colleague's A7 worked better ) so sold it and bought a s/h A7S … which promises to be superb for low light imaging now that I have the settings optimised.

I mostly use the Leica S now a days, but I miss the look of the R1.4/80mm so have been thinking of a 'cheap' solutions to be able to use the lens again. I still use it sometimes on my R8 with film.

I bought a basic A7 body just for my old SLR lenses, and it does very well with the R lenses. They seem a bit big on the A7, but performance is good.

Very few lenses could achieve this with aperture wide open. Many give dreamy pictures. They have to step down for one or two clicks to give such a sharp photo.

I miss all my Leica R glass. Most the 19 the 80 and 80-200.

Wish they would have a possibility like Nikon with their Df.

Just a digital back for these amazing bunch of glas.......

      Hello everyone,
       
      as I mentioned before I have been working on a comparison of Leica M 50mm lenses.
      I compared 10 of them. I ended up with an enormous amount of information and really long articles.
      You can read the whole thing, only the summaries, or only the conclusions.
      I am posting it here because I hope it's going to be a good resource for the community, clarifying quite a few doubts and answering a lot of questions that are often asked here. I would love to see a discussion coming out of it here on the forum, we all have different opinions and my conclusion might differ from yours. If so, do tell! I want conversation!
      The article is in 4 parts:
      https://www.47-degree.com/focus-shift/leica-m-50mm-lens-comparison-part-1, the introduction and first tests,
      https://www.47-degree.com/focus-shift/leica-m-50mm-lens-comparison-part-2, the technical analysis,
      https://www.47-degree.com/focus-shift/leica-m-50mm-lens-comparison-part-3, the bokeh and portrait rendering, 
      https://www.47-degree.com/focus-shift/leica-m-50mm-lens-comparison-part-4, the conclusions.
       
      The lenses in the article are, of course all 50mm:
      Nokton 1.1
      Nokton 1.2
      Nokton 1.5
      Nokton 1.5 II
      Summilux ASPH
      Summicron v5
      Zeiss Planar
      Zeiss C Sonnar
      7Artisans 1.1
      TTArtisans 1.4
       
      Enjoy!

      Hallo,
      ich biete hier mein hervorragend erhaltenes Leica Summilux 50mm f1.4 black paint mit 6-bit Codierung an. Ein Leica Echtleder Köcher ist außerdem dabei.
      Das Objektiv hat keine Kratzer, kein Fungus, keinen Staub. Die Fokusring läuft einwandfrei und geschmeidig. Die Blende Rastet schön ein und es ist kein Öl auf den Blendenlamellen.
      Ich bin kein Sammler und nutze mein Noctilux einfach viel häufiger. Also darf das gute Stück hier den Besitzer wechseln.
      Versand ist versichert möglich. Zahlung per Paypal Friends auch kein Problem.
      Lieben Gruß
      Sven

      Hello, 
      I am offering my excellently preserved Leica Summilux 50mm f1.4 black paint with 6-bit coding. A Leica real leather quiver is also included.
       
      The lens has no scratches, no fungus, no dust. The focus ring runs flawless and smoothly. The aperture locks in nicely and there is no oil on the aperture blades. I am not a collector and I just use my Noctilux much more often. So the good piece can change hands here. 
      Insured shipping is possible. 
      Payment by PayPal Friends is also no problem. 
      The lens can also be collected in Berlin, Germany. 
      Cheers
      Sven

      Hi All, I am sharing my short article few years back when I traveled around France for a month just carrying one body (ME) and one lens (50mm Summilux). It was a regret decision for the fist 1 week but I am enjoying the thrill after that :D. I wonder if you guys have the same experience with just relying on 1 lens for your long trip.

      Having recently purchased an Industar-50 f3.5, I have an issue regarding focussing.
      When set to infinity, it doesn't focus correctly, seemingly needing a slight turn beyond infinity.
      Also when trying to focus on objects at 0.65m (the minimum focal distance of this lens), I need to stand about 1m away to focus properly.
      I don't know if it's a problem with the camera or the lens. 
      Any suggestions?
