There has been a long and excellent thread running since January 2010 called "M8 and Old Glass", which contains many beautiful pictures using older lenses on M8's. I've wanted to contribute to the thread for some time since I've been experimenting with older glass but most of my shots now are with my M9-P or M2 and are out of place in that thread, so I decided to start a new thread that's not tied to a particular camera so that we can all benefit from seeing what older lenses can do.   Please

Those are lovely shots, Chaps, and thanks for the support.   Dirk, I've seen those superb shots before and they caused to me to lust after a 73/1.9 but I overcame the lust over time. But now it's started again! Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen?

Summicron-M 50 v5

Hi Kwesi,

Thank you for your post but I respectfully draw your attention to the opening post in this thread, which defines 'older glass' as that "it should not be the current model".  The 50/2 Summicron version 5 is a lens that Leica continues to sell new and is therefore the current model.  I accept that there is confusion here with the 50/2 APO Summicron asph (which is also current).

Pete.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for pointing this out.

I noticed immediately after posting that it was in the wrong thread. I had meant to post in the Nifty Fifty thread. I was just about to delete it when  I noticed that Bags27 had commented so felt I should leave it. 

Mods, please move my post to the Nifty Fifty Thread if that's possible.

yeah, it’s a pleasant enough bridge, would be nice with something of interest in the frame though..... woah! didn’t see that up there, what’s that, a flying bike !?

......and the fish standing at the edge of the stream is a nice touch too. 😁
