Why is that? Is I cost, performance... ?

I never touch Kodak anymore, they priced themselves out of the Australian market; $280 for 30m of tri-x, compared to $110 and $70 for hp5 and Fomapan 400 respectively.

Not because of the money, but the quality ... I really don't like it.

In Amsterdam I pay EUR 5,50 for a roll of Tmax400-2 (if I take 10 of them). In a shop. Best fast B+W film ever.

How do I know WHICH 'Version' I have == I never knew there were more than one 'versions' of the early 35mm f1.4 Summiliux -- I have TWO which came with my Secondhand 1965 M2 and 1986 M6 a ' Canadian Leitz' 1966 and a 'German' Leitz 1989
both very 'soft' at f1.4

A nice pair!
Check the serial numbers against a 'known' source.

Thanks -- that 'link' as very useful - didn't know about it . I have found out that the Canadian one is 'Version 1' and the 'German' one is Version II' and only 450 of them were made ! Now to take a few more snaps with the German one when I get the opportunity.

Not arrogant at all and thank you for following my flickr link and your comments. What immediately struck me about your picture is the way the light moves down through the scene, I found it very striking, and the look of the 35 Summilux too of course!

Regards

Simon

Thanks, yeah, a nice lens indeed. I'm not technical enough to explain it well but there's something about the light fall off and rendering of the pre-asph 35 that really appeals for B+W. I seem to only really like the older Leica lens signatures (this pre-asph, Summaron 35 2.8, Elmarit 90, DR cron 50 and collapsible 50 etc) and not big on the newer glass. I don't have a Leica M body right now (mainly MF shooting at the mo and have Nikon for occasional 35mm) so I am able to control GAS for buying another one but I did really enjoy owning and shooting it. Really compact in size on an M body and makes for an eminently practical daily carry rig.

Thank you Sir, you've made my day.

I should explain, I've been inspired by your Japanese film shots for years. It was that work of yours (and about five other people's work on RFF that spring to mind) that pushed me to sign up and take part here. Nice for me to be able to produce a shot that you like.

Thanks Helen, you're a sweetie and certainly the 'Grandmistress of Atmospheric shots' on this forum! With such kind praise from both you and Gabor I think I could die and go to heaven now quite happily.

Btw Ms.Hill, whilst I have your attention, your Flickr albums have a lot to answer for in terms of inducing lens lust! There's both a 35 pre asph lux and an 21SA 3.4 full set with hood and finder for sale very close to me at the minute... I'm trying to resist but your photos are not making it easy :-) Your work with that 21 is straight out of a movie set, blows my mind.

Thanks Giulio,

Yep, a nice pair! But do you get the Noctilux or the SA first...

I'm actually thinking about getting rid of my 21SA. A beautiful lens, but I get confused having two focal lengths and feel much better without the choice. The 35mm summilux is by far my favourite, and I'm much more comfortable with a 35mm. I don't know how you and Erik (and others) seem to move so seamlessly between lenses, always producing wonderful images with the same style. I find it very hard.

Michael, 35 is my main FL.
The Summaron 35 being my fave, the lux 35 the "special" and the cron asph the "modern" one.
I could get rid of the cron as it would be pretty easy to replace it at any time but I am getting attached to my glasses :-)
Since last year I started using 50s ending up with a lux 50 (pre) the nikkor 5cm 1.4 in S-mount (need to use it more!) and the little Elmar-M
The 21SA would fit the rendering of the lux 35 and nikkor 5cm but I rarely going out with more than 1 lens..maybe that’s why I am postponing the purchase since years now…
The Noctilux is growing on me lately and I am looking for a copy but I am still not sure if it will ever happen.
Btw, you are doing great with the 21 + 35 so please keep both :-) !

Giulio

Giulio, that's wonderful! You should cross-post this in "The Look" thread. These women's expressions are like my daughters' when I photograph them.
