Leica M10 with Canon 50mm f0.95

I asked Amedeo Meletti to modify my Canon 50mm f0.95 with M mount.

Have a look at https://eoloperfido.com/blog/canon-50mm-095

The lens at 0.95 is quite "soft" but on the M10 looks so cool :-)

Is the lens usable for your work?

@0.95 is really difficult to focus. And very soft. But still usable for some sort of creative work. Better to use with the Visoflex.

From 1.4 it start to be quite interesting as a portrait lens with a strong vintage look.

I attach a test portrait made today to a friend at 0.95 with a Leica M10

0.95

Portrait looks nice! Soft but suits the image well.

I like the portrait. This is an LTM lens, right? Why would one not just get and ltm to m adapter? Is it more accurate this way?

The 0.95 is not an LTM lens. It has a special outer bayonet mount for the Canon 7, which has the accepting bayonet around its LTM lens mount. There are also "TV" versions of the 0.95 with some kind of video mount. All Canon 0.95 lenses need to have some machine work done to make them M mount. Its not extensive modification, so there's many competent folks out there to do the conversion. Of course, I know there's a few "hacks" out there too, so best to send it to someone truly capable. I know DAG can do it right.

Oh, ok. I always thought it was LTM, so now it all makes sense.

I do not have a Canon 50mm f0.95 though I would most certainly love to try one. I do have a slightly care-worn 50mm f1.2 though, a lens which I got quite cheaply because the coating on the front element was quite worn due to over enthusiastic cleaning by some previous owner. A nice deep hood helps a bit in this regard so the lens is usable and more.......Long story short is that while I had heard these were soft (and this is certainly true when shot wide open) I was pleasantly surprised at just how sharp they can be when stopped down just a tad. I imagine the 0.95 could be more or less the same if stopped down a little. The following shot was made not with my Leica - I used a Sony (I still struggle to hit critical focus with Leicas except when shooting static shots) and was made at f2......check out how sharp the subject's eyes are by clicking to bring up the larger version. Lovely low contrast tonal quality too. You are lucky to have your camera / lens combo it will make a great pair though I must admit I would really struggle at f0.95 but I love the concept.

Ive been using my grandfathers copy for many years on mirrorless bodies until recently where I changed to canon but it is very surprisingly sharp wide open when you nail it. Youre going to have a blast with it!

You remind me that I need to get his canon 7 back up and running so I can use it again!
