I promised to show you guys my new 50mm Elmar-M f2.8 attached to my M3. Here it is. Photos to follow when I develop the film and print in the next few days.

if you ever get bored franklin and decide to buy a 5d or whatever, do give santa a call and maybe he can relieve you of your m ... i certainly know of at least one good home for it ... hehehe

It just goes to reinforce my long-held belief, that the old ones are always nicer than the new ones. If I was buying an 'M', this is the one I'd buy. Just gorgeous.

 

And who needs built-in metering, anyhow? Nothing wrong with a Weston

Franklin, what a nice kit! You will be positively surprised by the results taken with the new Elmar, I have one, too, and it is razor sharp.

 

BTW, to keep your set looking as mint as it does, please do affix the camera strap at its right mounting point (left side in the above picture) correctly, the way it is now it might come off unintentionally and, moreover, it might scratch the top plate.

 

Cheers,

 

Andy
