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.

Had  a go with the ElmaritR 35 on M10R.  Pros: close focus and fantastic detail, Cons: Bulky and heavy, not something to take around. Waiting for the lottery to get the new Summicron.

For giggles : same location and same beverage (no colours here, so you'll have to trust me) as in my previous post but different camera and "glass"...

Are you satisfied with Skylanney's workmanship, Jean-Marc?  (I'm not suggesting that you might not be, I just haven't seen any feedback from happy or disappointed customers.)

Hello Pete,

 

yes, I am very satisfied with Chris Andreyo / Skyllaney's craftmanship.  Just went to visit him last week in Scotland and I have been impressed by his equipment and competence.

+1. Chris and Vita are a pleasure to deal with!

Same camera, lens and aperture as above.
