Hi everyone, I just purchased this lens to shoot on both film and digital, I read forum posts and reviews online, but there's way more information on the V2 / V3 than the V1, which makes sense since this lens only lasted two years so not a lot of people out there actually using it I guess?
I mostly bought this lens to shoot portraits and complement my favorite lens of all time, the summicron 35mm 8 elements (also a v1 lens :p). I tried the 50mm summilux asph and pre-asph v2/v3 but didn't enjoy the rendering of the pre-asph v2/v3 that much, nor the size of the asph.
I think I've tried all 50s that Leica has made, and my favorite is the first Summicron collapsible, so by now I guess you can figure out I really like Leica's rendering from the 50s (and it also seems I have a thing for v1 lenses...)
What do you think of this lens if you own it or have used one before? How's the performance at F1.4~F2, and also a bit closed down at F4~F8?
Do you still shoot with it nowadays? If so, would love to hear your thoughts on it
Thanks and to a 2020 with lots of great memories to be captured!
The thin alu-piece, that is on top of the hot-shoe (not the hot-shoe-cover) fell off my camera yesterday, so the top plate of the hot-shoe is “naked" (see the attached picture).
I don’t know why the alu-piece did fell off, since the only thing that has been sitting on/in the hot shoe is my Leica-flash and Visoflex-viewfinder.
What function does that small alu-piece have? What would you do?
