Those 35mm f/2.8 C-Biogons are looking mighty tempting now too aren't they?

I like your little Mini pic, and sorry to see it stuffed into the weeds. Fine detail and tonality.

Here's one with my f/2.8 Summaron on an M2... (Edit to add: Fuji 800Z at EI 500)

A wonderful lens; one of Leica's masterpieces IMO. I use the 35f2 Summicron-M ASPH more often but the 35f2.8 Summaron is my favourite 35mm.

There are some very nice images in this thread. My 35 Summaron tends to flare -- and perhaps needs a good cleaning. Still, the atmosphere can work. Here's a favorite image taken with this lens.

Raid, what are you using now that Reala seems to be no longer available?

Together with the Jupiter 3 my most used lens on ltm camera's, the summaron provides fine detail and balanced colors:

I've frequently seen the opinion expressed that the 2.8 summaron is an excellent black and white lens. This seems to imply that it would not be some people's first choice for colour. I think it's OK in this area and can - depending on subject - produce some painterly results. Anybody agree or differ? Attached is a shot using the lens on an M6 TTL with Kodak E100G slide film. Straight scan with levels adjusted.

Great stuff! May I ask which film?

I don't use the Summaron for color often enough because I love the BW results so much that I never feel the urge...but your pictures tempt me to try a few more emulsions!

So many great shots here. I just saw a 3.5 Summaron for sale. (Prices of 2.8 have been skyrocketing.) Is this image quality wise a 2.8 without the extra stop? Do the 2.8 and 3.5 deliver similar images on the stops from 3.5?

I got the non-goggeled ”M” version and it was just the other day that I learned that it could be converted to m39-mount by unscrewing that little screw, now I can use it on my Leica III too


Wide open on the M6 at 1/15 (probably, but it could even be 1/8) and ASA 400 (HP5+ or Tri-x):
