Here are the first few from my Leitz 50mm nickel Elmar. I really like the lower contrast look, although close examination of the scans, especially the vertical shot below, makes it look like it might be out of collimation. The left side is slightly more out of focus than the right in areas that are in the same plane. I'm going to have to test it a little more before sending it to someone to get it adjusted.

Both shots on Tri-X pushed to 1600 and developed in D76 1:1.

Maclaine, it's easy to have the focusing threads on a 50/3.5 Elmar get worn down such that there's some slop, and the lens can get a little sideways. It still focuses reasonably accurately, but things will be a little asymmetric focus wise.

Thanks for the tip, John. What I'm thinking now is that the lens might have been slightly out of alignment due to not being locked in place. The focusing is a little stiff and the lens came unlocked a couple times while I was shooting with it. I had hoped it wouldn't affect the photos, since it didn't seem to collapse at all, but it might have done so just enough to cause the blur in the vertical shot of the trees.

I feel that if one wants to get the most out of uncoated lenses, they should be shooting color. The somewhat softer colors and the tendency for the photo to take on a cast of the predominant hue are qualities to be appreciated.

Nice images. I enjoy seeing an old camera like that getting some exercise.

Great shot, Rick! I didn't know that you are into the Great War now.

Is this shot with a Leica I with a fixed Hektor? Or is it a model C with the Hektor you had already? In any case, the results are fine.

It's a 1938 Model E, with that Hektor I had restored (and Kodak DX 5222 film)

I've been into Great War living history for a few years now. There aren't that many events in the Netherlands though. We have a West Front 1914-1918 group featuring some Doughboys and Poilus.
The photo was taken at Grave earlier this month. We had a 'bomb crater' display complete with a 'casualty' and fake barbed wire.

Come visit us at Huis Doorn this weekend

Do you know this Flickr-account about the Great War? I am following this one for a few years, very interesting, also photographically:https://www.flickr.com/photos/drakegoodman/

Good luck,

Yes, I believe you've posted that link once or twice before, in response to other WW1 related photographs I've posted
