These lovely images are a boost to my mood, this morning. I am grateful for being able to see every one of them. Thanks.

I bought a pre-owned, well-preserved Voigtlander 75mm LTM, some time ago, and have yet to take it for a walk-about. I really should remedy that situation. 

Make sure you post when you do 🙂

Some here say 75 is too long, others love the 135, I enjoy the different perspectives and sometimes challenges of different lenses, for me , I’m just a guy having fun and documenting along my journey to no where that special. 
 

I agree Rex, take out that 75 V and enjoy!

I agree Rex, take that well preserved 75 V out for a walk!
 

I enjoy different perspectives… and what they bring: challenges, a unique point of view, etc. I now use the EVF for almost all 75 shots if not focusing at infinity,  I know there is controversy around it, I think of it as a tool in the bag to be used as needed - it’s certainly increased my focus hit ratio.

BTW - just as a historical note. Until after WW2 (more or less), a 50mm lens was the "normal" cinematic lens on 35mm motion picture frames (what we would call half-frame or "APS-C" on a Leica).

Mostly because a wider focal length with motion (and especially motion towards/away from the camera) tended to make audiences sea-sick. Kinda like Imax or Go-Pro action sequences. ;)

There were exceptions (Citizen Kane) where wider lenses were used for effect, but for the basic "theatrical stage on a screen" scenes, or actor closeups, the 50% longer-than "normal" focal length was vastly preferred.

A lot of the horizontal shots here do have a "cinematic" feel to them. I can see Buster Keaton firing the cannon above. ;)

Hi, excellent pics in this thread!👍 I only own two 75mm M mount lenses. Maybe, this thread will make me use them more frequently ... ---
