    I'm mostly doing MF these days - but that M9 is a lot quicker to use when a storm approaches!

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Too busy at work to contribute much lately, so my apologies. Had a new addition to the family over the weekend....no not a baby, another lens

    The jury is still out as to whether this is my first lens 'error'. I went intending to buy a 90 Elmarit, and came away with a (pre-asph) 90 'cron....difficult to explain, but largely because of build quality and the desire (not need) for speed.

    Anyway, took loads of images both Saturday and today, and I think I picked the wrong lens On the plus side, I think I understand what is meant by the classic Leica look. This thing is dreamy beyond belief but quite frankly I'm not sure I can cope with this degree of softness. Even when I think I've nailed it, it turns out barely anything is in focus. Even stopping down doesn't improve things much. BUT, when I definitely did nail it I can forgive the softness because of the overall 'feel' of the image, if that makes sense.

    So, it's either a lens issue, my rangefinder or (possibly) my eyes

    At web size, these are not going to tell you much, but these are a few of my keepers from this weekend. Forgive the long intro













    Thanks for looking (and listening).

    Mike - that's disappointing to hear (and see) - I was thinking of getting a 90mm f2 pre-asph but not sure after reading your comments.

    Guess I'll have to save up my pennies and get the apo asph version

    I just got a 90 f2 pre-asph, and wide open sharpness is excellent

    this is a wide open shot..




    and a 100% crop of the M9 file




    I've just had this lens a week now, and have found it excellent.

    Since you're just down the way from me, if you're interested in trying it out on your camera for some test shots, let me know.. we can meet at Henry Cowell sometime

    Cheers,
    Joe, first things first...I'm no expert and no lens tester, although I might be getting the ruler out this time

    Don't write it off. It gets good reviews. Perhaps I've been unlucky or maybe I can't handle the very thin depth of field. I'm happy to accept that. I've read a lot about the difficulties associated with focussing 90s. Not sure why they should be any different to any other lens...the rangefinder patch remains the same size.

    Anyway I have more work to do. I can nail focus with 35, 50 and 75s....I'm certainly not used to deleting 90%+ of images due to being out of focus for all apertures between f2 and f4

    Thanks for posting this Jim - looks reasonably sharp - I assume this is wide open?

    I do notice quite a bit of CA - green behind the plane of focus and magenta in front?

    Cheers,
    i've found very few samples of vintage fast glass (preasph) to be CA free wide open (most of my stuff is b/w.. so doesn't matter that much to me.. Capture One also does an excellent job of clearing that stuff up)

    I don't thiink I own any of the new (cleaner) lenses from Leica.. just seem to prefer the imperfections

    Great image Thrice! Did you use a graduated filter or were you able to master this dynamic range post op? Thanks. Gary P.

    Does anyone know if lens selection was accidentally set wrong (e.g. manual and forget to change when change lens), is there a way to fix the lens type later and would it screw up the color shifting/vignetting compensation when load up in LR? Thanks!

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Picked up my new 50mm lux on Saturday and have been shooting with it exclusively since ;-)

    This lens is a little gem - and I do mean little. I was surprised at how small and compact it is for an f1.4 lens.

    Here is a mix of photos I've taken with it - mainly just learning the personality of this lens but so far I'm so thrilled with it that it may never come off my M9











    Comment welcome and thanks for looking.

    Daniel: Thank you, sir! I need to go back when I have more time and can get up early and stay late. I've heard that the light can be better then?
    This was worth the mosquito bites! Brilliant composition with the line of the water and the bits of pink cloud reflection. Your landscapes always set a very high standard.

    Mike: I can see what you mean. IMHO, #3 and #6 are the most appealing. Although, you might have wanted less softness in the girl in #6?

    I'm, convinced that the Summarit will meet my infrequent 90mm needs. Slightly less $ then the Elmarit, and a lot less then the Summicron (both of which i've owned), designed for digital and compact. I just looked at the metadata in LR3 and confirmed my level of use at that length.

    Cheers, Matt

    I'm, convinced that the Summarit will meet my infrequent 90mm needs. Slightly less $ then the Elmarit, and a lot less then the Summicron (both of which i've owned), designed for digital and compact. I just looked at the metadata in LR3 and confirmed my level of use at that length.

    Thanks Matt, just to make it clear that what I posted were the better ones

    Anyway, did a rough and ready test this morning. Results here if anyone wants to comment.

    Seems to me focus doesn't achieve acceptable (to me) sharpness until around f5.6-f8.

    Agree Mike. This lens appears to be a little off. Definitely have faith in your Leica focusing abilities! Can you return or exchange it?

    Hi Gary, thanks for your compliments
    I used two grad ND's, one a Singh-Ray 3 stop reverse, the other a Singh-Ray 2 stop soft.

    This was worth the mosquito bites! Brilliant composition with the line of the water and the bits of pink cloud reflection. Your landscapes always set a very high standard.
    I think I should move to Northern Norway so that I can enjoy hours upon hours of sunset light at certain times of year.

    Thanks for the compliments

    More tests against a ruler reveal a back focus issue at all apertures. Dealer is happy to accept a return.

    Thanks Steve - my wife doesn't like to pose for me so I was very happy to get this capture of her. I usually use my dog as my main model but lately even she's starting to run away whenever I approach her with camera in hand ;-)

    The oof rendering on this lens is fantastic - very smooth and handles difficult backgrounds without much fuss. I'm also impressed with the minimal CA wide open - this lens definitely earned its reputation.

    Cheers,
    -- Joe

    congrats! you thinking of staying with this type (do they have another in stock?) They're normally very sharp wide open, and have great rendering

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    A few from the Iowa State Fair...still getting the hang of the new M9. I'm missing more due to exposure than focus now (which I think is a good and fixable thing!)

    All with M9 and Summicron-M 50mm:

    1. f/4, 1/45, ISO 160



    2. f/2.8, 1/60, ISO 400



    3. f/4, 1/125, ISO 400



    4. f/8, 1/250, ISO 200



    Thanks for looking (more fair photos at my website)...
