Greetings to all. These were shot with an M3 with 50 Cron or 85 Nikkor on Ilford FP3 at the downtown street market 50 years ago.

I am so happy to see you posting images from your 85 summarex. I will be posting some from mine tomorrow. This is a very special lens and for me much better than the 90 APO which is certainly a wonderful piece of glass.

Let's all of us celebrate the old Leica looks

Thanks, Woody. The Summarex is magic. I love the OOF rendering.
It is a beautiful lens and mine makes quite a statement on the M5.:ROTFL:

kinok1: Did you do some photoshopping on those photos? Very high contrast, low saturation, and grainy - like beach bypass. I like the look, just curious if you played around some either in exposing, developing, or photoshop. Very different from what I've gotten from Portra 160.

CV 15mm and Portra 400NC:


(my brand new) 50 ASPH Lux and Tri-X:


Nikkor 50/1.4 and Tri-X:

Slight desaturation and a contrast boost in lightroom. I've been a lurker here on this forum for a long time. Love the people and the information. Always good. I've been shooting more and more film both personally and professionally, and a big thanks to Cindy for starting this thread!

kinok1, You are welcome. I had already loaded up my M5 with some Porta 160 before I started this thread. Your beautiful photos have made me anxious to finish the roll. I haven't shot any color for a while.

This is from a camera store in Victoria, BC, Canada in 2004. Probably M4-P and a 35/2 Summicron almost wide open, Kodak ISO 400 film converted to B&W.

Mexico - Leica M7, 35 Summilux ASPH, Neopan 100... This is a crappy scan from a print I did on the darkroom.
