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.

@farnz, I hope this photo is fully qualified due to the 24mm EOL lately...^^

I can't find the 24/2.8 Elmarit-M asph offered for sale new on the Leica Mayfair site so yes it qualifies ... just. ^_^

Pete.

Is that the same as relegated to antique status?

IMHO, this lens is not old enough to fall under the antique umbrella. 

Perhaps the use of the word "vintage" in the 1980s and ‘90s was largely associated with specific collecting genres.

The adjective "antique" hasn't been used in this thread to distinguish between eligible and ineligible lenses, only "There's no restriction on the type of lens except that it should not be the current model." as correctly quoted by Erato from my opening post.
