Finally I've found a Summilux 50mm f/1.4 v1 in black for my M2. Not new but the glass is perfect.

Beautiful Erik!



Now I am curious to know what's missing on your want list of old leitz lenses

I believe a V1 Nocti but not much else. :-)

Thank you Giulio, I got a bit off the Noctilux. This Summilux is infinitely better.

I got my Dual Range Summicron back from a full going over, CLA and re-set of close up lenses (they were miles out because there was no spacing for the prism). So some celebratory images on my M3. This lens is exquisite, it looks and feels brand new (shows up my M3 a little too, but who cares). I hope to get it out this weekend.

That's a beauty Charles. I always liked the dual-range Summicron.

The poor man's 35. Apparently Tom Abrahamsson liked the version l. I'll give this S.C. version ll a spin. If it's got character wide-open, it's in.

Impressive, but I once had a Collapsible LTM Summciron (13******* S/N), immaculate front lens), very sharp in center but the most flare prone lens I ever had. Sold it to Keep the 1.4/50 Canon RF lens of similar vintage.

Frank, I think you already know the answer to your question. It's a camera geek sub-forum by its nature. Show us a platinum print instead......

I've not tried a collapsible, I wonder if there's a difference in glass or coatings, as after 2 rolls in sunny conditions I've had a couple of sunstars but absolutely no flaring. In that regard it's miles better than my 90mm Summicron that flares far too often.

Thanks - that I didn't know! I think my next 50 is more likely to be a Summilux, but that will be some time yet.

My Leica M3 chrome is in a perfect condition compared..
OK chrome worn thru to brass, vulcanite falling off..
So nice seeing a camera used, not jewelry.

Patina at its most evocative. You don't get that from a rub down and partial respray.

The camera was recently cla'd by Cathy Kuiper from Will van Manen camera-service. She did a wonderful job!

This is my german-russian combination for street photography.
Most of the time, I don't have the time to adjust focus correctly, so I just leave it at hyperfocal distance. When I tried to make candid photography with my rangefinder cameras, I often was too slow to get the focus right and missed the moment very often. So with the M1, it's kind of liberating for me not have to think about focus too much and concentrate more on composition.

The additional rangefinder works quite well, although it's a little bit more cumbersome to use, it's good enough for subjects that don't require quick focusing. And the Jupiter-12 lens gives quite decent results too - if you use it stopped down a bit.

The M just arrived today. Seems to work fine but the advance was a little firmer than I expected.

Ended up having to send this back. The mirror was oxidizing pretty badly.
