Someone local was offering an LTM version of this lens for $250 last year which was just outside my budget at the time. I'm still kicking myself for not finding a way to buy one.

Lovely shots all.

I just picked one of these up in Shinjuku tonight for a wicked price with a lens hood included (Under $250 USD). Feel glad to have gone to that shop tonight, I doubt that lens was in the shop more than a few hours.

Sorry for entering this thread without any photos made with the 35mm Skopar. I'm thinking about buying one as cheap and compact second 35mm and I'm not sure, if there is a big difference between the first LTM- and the second M-version.

According to the specs the M-version is smaller and lighter, but how about sharpness and image quality. Has anyone here a good comparison of both versions? Thanks in advance:

There is no optical difference between the two versions, as far as I know… I'd take the M39-version, because it's cheaper and you can use it on LTM-cameras, as well as on M-cameras…

That's what I thought, but the dimensions are quite different, so I was not sure. The size would be an important part of the choice. I'd prefer the smaller one, if there i no optical difference.

With cheap I meant as a really cheap companion to a Summilux, so 50$ difference would not mean so much to me.

Thanks for the answer so far. Any additions about possible IQ differences? Also I'm not sure, if the PII has a focus tab. The image on the Voigtländer site does not show one. Any comments to that?

Yesterday my new used Skopar LTM in silver arrived. It really is a tiny lens and I am very pleased with the image quality. The focus-"thingy" is really usable. Thanks for the useful comments here.

While I generally loved the Canon 35mm 2.8, the soft corners wide open weren't really my preferred look. I took several shots wider open and up close to see how the VC performed in my first roll with it. I'm definitely much happier with the performance.

Little bump for the Skopar. What a sweet lens.



Last of the plumb blossoms in Addison County, Vermont.

Edit: NEX-5 and Hawk's close-up helicoid. Blacks tweaked in LightRoom.

That close-up is really nice. One of the very few things I sometimes miss doing with a RF.

One from me. This house is just around the corner and I always like how it looks through the seasons.

Wow. Those colors really "pop" on my monitor. This lens has high contrast, which can give images made with it a particularly punchy look.

Simon! These are excellent. Are these scans of film Tri-X? The sharpness/contrast of the lens really comes through.

I haven't had much time for scanning lately, but from what I've seen, I'm really loving this lens...

I have been reading all the post and wow! really good pictures! Congrats to all!

This lens seems to be a jewel... I'm looking for a little 35mm and I'm thinking about this lens or de C Biogon T* 2.8/35... has anyone used them both?

Leica M9 + Skopar 35mm f/2.5
ISO 400 @ f/4 @ 1/1800

it is a delightful lens. Works well on M4-2, M9, and GXR-M cameras. Very crisp, very petite.

I think it would be appropriate to say that this little lens does a great job of not standing between a photographer and excellent photos.

Love the work you guys are posting here.

Hello

The Skopar is a little softer in the corners
at wide apertures than the Biogon, centre is
very sharp.
But it is nice and small, light and has built
in hood.

Thank you tonyc!

I'm thinking in a LITTLE lens in 35mm for travelling with a film camera: slides (Agfa 100 Precisa CT) and B/W (Argenti Pan-X).

Regards,
Xabier.
