This was shot with my uncoated 1939 Summar on my Leica IIIc. Exposure was a guess:

Great shot, Ade!

Would make a lovely birthday present as a print

I love how that uncoated lens renders his hair and the grass in the background.

A couple from another roll of Superpan 200 with my Xenon (on another Leica IIIc) taken last week in the historic town of Durbuy.







Starting to like my Xenon a lot

It can't be a Leica II, however. The first Leica II was made in 1932.

Thanks Erik, Yes it is indeed a Leica II, It's a conversion. It was originally a Leica I, which was factory converted into Leica II.

Grrr...my last roll shot with some pre-war Leica glass failed to come back from the lab. Second time they lost one of my rolls in as many months.

Erik, you're wringing some incredible sharpness out of this beauty.

Sad story, Rick. I don't know if it was color or black and white. When black and white, you should develop yourself. It is really easy and takes hardly any time.

I am happy too with the sharpness of the Elmar. I have this camera for many years, but didn't use it because of the internal haze inside the lens. The lens was sharp, but there was no contrast.

Finally I managed to take off (without damage) the frontal retaining ring, wich holds the front element. It was REALLY tight. There were two holes in it made at an earlier attempt to remove it. My repairman didn't dare to do it. With a piece of tape I then could pop uit the front element. The rest was easy.

Erik.

I just got off the phone with the shop, apparently the roll was running late because someone had filled out the envelope incorrectly. So they made prints. Should have some scans by tomorrow.

I've never dared to open up my 1946 Elmar to clean the inside of the front lens element when I still had it. I was slightlye less worried opening up a FED-50 to clean out the condensation.
I need to use my 1936 Elmar again one of these days, when I grow tired of the Xenon.

I will be photographing some Gothic/Fantasy/Steampunk/WW2 models this weekend, haven't decided on which lenses to take. Leaning towards my 1937 90mm f/4 Elmar for portraits.

Thanks,

I'm still trying to find the optimal way to scan Superpan 200. Currently using the Tmax400 Presets in Vuescan and then adjusting the levels and curves in CS2.

Thanks Helen, the Musketeer is my friend Marc, an 80 years' war mercenary fighting for William of Orange against the Spaniards

Another one from the same weekend

I should've gotten more of his face in this one...

Rick you got just the right amount of face on film. The lack of eyes add's to the picture. Nice shot

Thanks Erik!

A lot of this roll the uncoated elements of my summar were showing their character. These were the few frames that weren't overtaken with flare

I know. Even the best shades don't help. I had the same problems with mine. Finally I found a fully coated one. Coating improves the performance of the Summar a lot and makes clear that it is an excellent lens, even by modern standards.

The uncoated Summar however has its charms, but it is not an universal lens.

it also doesnt help that my summar has the black painted flocking removed in parts because the paint just started flaking off.

In a lot of situations though I find my summar to be a very excellent performer. Very impressive how it does for something almost 80 years old.

Yes, absolutely. The Summar is great when the light is coming from behind the photographer. A good shade, like the black FLQOO, helps too. Not the SOOMP. Unfortunately the FLQOO is more expensive than the Summar itself.
