M9 with Canon 35mm/1.5

I used my Canon 35mm/1.5 with the M9 this past weekend. I used a Canon W 50 lens hood which resulted in some vignetting. Now I think there is no need for any lens hood since the front glass is recessed in the 35/1.5.
I will leave the images without any editing or PS to show you what you get from jpg files.

Handling the lens was easy, but the infinity lock sometimes annoyed me. The M9 has been working very well and without any "going to sleep" since I switched it from discrete mode to standard mode for frame advance.

I used at the same time the M8 with the Canon 35/2. I will upload later images here from the M8.

I have the same 35 f1.5. Mine seems to be RF calibrated for f2.8. Shooting it at wider apertures, I have to focus a bit towards infinity. Is yours like that?

I don't think so. I focus as usual. I need to check it out though.

It is "rare", so to speak. A quick check on ebay shows me several examples for sale for over $1200. It used to cost $300 or so.

interesting. I guess mines that way. I've tested it on a M240 and M4. I havent tried it on my M9 yet.

It can be possible that different lenses have somewhat different RF specs.

Your lens draw nicely and remind me that Canon made good lenses. I have a Canon 35 f1.8 on the shelf for a while. I should use it more.
