    Re: Old lenses on new Leicas

    That 50/1.5 ZM is as new lens as it can be (despite the "C" designation).

    Cam, Hope your knee is better. I found my 20mm Russar after a long time.

    Re: Old lenses on new Leicas

    Time to start your own thread on the ZM 50 1.5 C ... I rather like the way it images. And it is a rare old lens that I really desire to use...some great examples here, but I tend to avoid bad glass...I am rather adept at messing up pictures without adding that to the equation.

    Sure you have other oldies. Did you not show an old 90mm Elmar in one of your comparisons? Or was it just for show?

    It's an Elmarit-M 90mm f/2.8. Its cousin is a Tele-Elmar-M 135mm f/4. Neither are very old, and my oldest Leica glass...

    Re: Old lenses on new Leicas

    I just love the "grain" structure from the MM (unless there is any post process induced it).

    Winter Trees in Fog

    It was a lovely, foggy morning yesterday. I took the opportunity to stop at Guadalupe River Park on the way to work and shoot a few scenes with the M9 fitted with a 1960 Hektor 135mm f/4.5 lens. Here's one:


    Leica M9 + Hektor 135mm f/4.5
    ISO 1000 @ f/6.7 @ 1/500 second

    The old Hektor has a lovely, low contrast feel in this light, don't you think?

    Thanks for looking. Comments are always appreciated. :-)

    Canon S-Mount 28mm F2.8 on the M8. It's a cracking lens stopped down, as seen below but rather soft wide open... I loved how compact and light it was, especially compared to my ZM28 but I sold it after a couple of months.

    Re: Old lenses on new Leicas

    I found a vintage Orion adapter on eBay - it adapts Contax/Nikon rangefinder lenses to Leica screw mount. It obviously includes a helicoid. I also found an uncoated 1933 5cm. Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar f2.0 and a Nikkor 5cm f1.4 from the 1950s. The Sonnar is the surprise. Dreamy at f2.0 (almost like a softar) but actually remarkable corner to corner resolution by f5.6 or so. Contrast is quite low but that's easy to work with in post. So far I've shot mainly familiarization stuff - here's a sample at f8.0. A bunch of veiling flair but that's the look. The focus is off a couple of inches at close focus so it's not much use for portraits. Here used on my MM.

    Re: Old lenses on new Leicas

    I suppose Cam's sample shots with a 21 Superangulon have to wait.

    Here is a test shot with an early sample (silver) of Russar 20/5.6. A crappy looking sample with fantastic glass and results.

    Among the older lenses I use every now and then I particularly like the Canon 50 1.2


    The Summitar 50 2.0 (uncoated)


    Best on the MM... :-)
