Very much, as my purpose in getting it was to lower the finder magnification so that the 35mm field of view appears in the 50mm framelines. First time ever I've been able to see the M2's whole 35mm view even without glasses... and some of the world around it!

Thanks for your comments. Im probably going to get that same combo in the near future. I was thinking about getting a .58 mag camera, but already have a goggled summaron I use on a M3...

Sounds reasonable... an efficient second use for your Summaron. The .58x viewfinder would offer useful 28mm framelines as well, if that's a factor.

Part of the issue here is that the M2 framelines are larger than, say, M6 frames, farther out toward the edges of the visible viewfinder, more accurately representing what would be included on film at longer focusing distances, but at shorter distances the frames include more than will be recorded on film. This can be distressing, so Leica changed later models to have smaller framelines that better represent what is included at about 1 meter, 2m, or even 0.7m... They've been changing viewfinders in this respect among M8, M8.2, M9 etc. so it's clearly not a universally settled matter!

My Summaron works well on the Leica M(240) also, though the hi-res sensor puts a strain on lens performance. There is a bit of resolution smearing in the extreme corners that is not objectionable in all scenes, and it's not the only lens to suffer this.

True. It looks nice here, but the colors still look a bit like a 1960's postcard. I think it's an unbeatable b&w lens.

Hi,

I would have said the film, lighting, exposure and developing probably caused the saturation, or the original printing, scanning etc. Most likely the film, imo.

Yes and no, when I used a summicron, even with the same configuration, the colors had a more modern look. All the lenses before the 70'-80' give a color rendition different from the modern lenses, especially with slide films.

Fascinating. Is there any documentation of this?
Of course pictures from the 30's using 30's color film look "different," but does this also hold true using modern film? You'd expect to see this difference in the "Prewar Leica Glass" thread, for instance.

Hmmm, well, um, a difference but not much of one. All my Leicas from 1926 to a few years ago seem muted or subtle compared to the shot that started this and I've never managed to get one like it.

This is from the oldest:-



It was a test shot taken years ago but we all have a good idea of the colour of a Fuji film carton.

SW Florida in April.
Fuji print film, zero post-processing.
The colors don't look especially "1960's post card" (read: over-saturated) to me.

Yes, that's my experience using different lenses from a Summar (40's) to zeiss and voigtlander (2000's). I only use modern film and scan with Coolscan V.
The modern lenses give more contrast and this affect the colors.
Also, I always find that old lenses give a different color rendition, probably because of the glass used at the time of their production, why do you want any documentation about that? It's only my own experience.
Try a post-war Summar and a recent summarit, the color rendition will be different, don't need a study for pointing that...
