Leica: M8 and M9 with Summicron 35 and 50

I decided yesterday to use my trusted Summicron 35/2 Version 1 (with 8 elements) and the Rigid 50/2. Both had hoods.

1. It was shortly before sunset:
I used the 35mm lens on the M9 here.

I used the 50mm lens on the M8 here.

2. I drove back to same location this morning around 7:40am. I switched around the lenses.

I used the 50mm lens on the M9 here.

I like the results from these two old Summicron lenses with the "old digital" cameras. I started out with these two lenses and the M3, and I am returning to the same lenses over twenty five years later but I am using the M8 and the M9. I did not do any editing or PS here.

Your feedback is always welcome.
Thanks.

love seeing images from M8. Still enjoying mine with 28mm f2.8 which stays attached. My 50mm Chron f2 is on my M7.
Cheers Dan

I used my Rokkor 28/2.8 recently on the M9. This focal length is also great. With the M8, the crop will give you a view that gets close to a 35mm view (more).

This morning, I switched the two lenses to a Canon 35/2 and a Canon 35/1.5. I am curious ...and I love using many of my lenses.

Look forward to viewing your canon35/f2 .... just ordered One from Japan

Thank you, Helen. Yes, the Crons rule.

The Canon 35/2 is a great little lens.

Very pretty Raid. Not much water where I live. Love my M8.2 and 262. Somehow the M8.2
Is very social to me.
