View Full Version : Fall images w/ Summarit
Well, once again, I am pleased with the results of the Summarit. This time in the Smoky Mountains:
Later, I will post a few more. Anyone else have fall photos with their Summarit?
I don't, but I'd love to see more of yours.
Have to leave in a moment, however, just so everyone knows that the Summarit works just as well indoors:
And for those of us who love bicycles:
Watch the classified ads. A friend is to put up an ad for the Summarit M I have to sell if I am to pay for the overhaul of my M3's range-finder.
Sweet...got any more to share?
And, yes, you can introduce flare quite easily without a hood, but it is controllable:
or, you can choose NOT to have flare:
Dave the first shot and the last are beautiful!
The Summarit works very well for interesting images in Hard Rock:
Ah, but the leaves always fall leaving the trees barren but with their own beauty:
There are so many more I could post, but this should give you an idea of what the Summarit did for me. I am interested in others' images, so please post!
Dave, is this the f/1.5 50mm Summarit? (There are f/2.5 ones currently in production.) I also have an f/1.5 which I had Sherry overhaul. I'm just now in the process of trying it out.
Yes, I believe mine was manufactured in 1953...
It is the only lens I have used this entire year except for a few trials with the Industar 26 which yields nice images but does not have the character of the Summarit 50mm 1.5. I find the Summarit especially good for portraits and special effects but I am impressed with the character of images for other applications.
This is my setup:
Thanks for the additional picture of the old truck ('36 Dodge?)... couldn't ID from the first shot.
Lovely photos !
Great photo !
Interesting comparison of the first photo of the truck using the M3 + Summarit and this photo using the D2X:
IMHO, the Summarit gives more of a 3D effect and a bit of a "glow"...
I have used a Summarit 50f1.5 and it was cleaned by Sherry Krauter (sp), with hood and if there is no white objects then the flare is not apparent. The pictures are very good otherwise but the glow is not what I want to have in my pictures. The hood did help somewhat. I have had it for sale and have had a few bites but no sale yet. It has M mount on the lens.
The area Where I lived in 1958....Shot last week,so it is fall.50/summarit.
I love my Summarit, but the fall colors have been short here this year.
Hopefully they are still around next week when I plan on doing a lot of shooting with that lens.
The Summarit M I am trying to sell is in the classifieds. It is said there that e-mail should be sent to me, but some people have sent PMs to the friend who posted the ad for me.
Not really 'fall-esque', but they were shot this fall on my Summarit.
Beautiful images. Nice comp between the Summarit & the D2x. I like the Summarit image better, ethereal.
