Thanks, it's my car under the rain :-)
Shooting on film with a Leica, driving this car....for all the people around me i'm coming from the past with a time machine.

I was noticing a strong vignetting in my last few shoots with the Canon 35\1.5 i suspect it's the filter, i have bought this lens years ago with all the original accessories and the filter it's an UVa Canon filter 48mm...it look like the same period of the lens, but probably it's not the correct one, i don't know, anyway without this filter the lens doesn't show this black corner.

People still wonder why i shoot film, as they see it as an inconvenience. I like it.
You have a lovely car by the way. Must be fun to drive!

Nice lens, car and pix, there.

The correct filter is what Canon called "Slimline" and it is flat-fronted, only threaded on the rear. The complete set of original 48mm Canon Slimline filters came in color-coded, bakelite tube that screwed together, so very neatly organized and safe. I found a complete set on Ebay last year, for a good price.

Regular double-threaded filters -do- vignette. Hence the special "Slimlines".

Thanks for these informations...i have checked mine and it's not slim at all...hahaha....as you can see from my pictures, i will take an eye on the market to find an UV for my canon 35 but i have to admit i'm not a great fan of filter on my lens...i always have a lot of flare and ghost image in my pictures when i use them with back light and evening shot.

Canon rfdr lenses

I must have been very fortunate, in that I bought the Canon 19mm 3.5, 28mm 3.5, 28mm 2.8, and 35mm 1.5 back in the '70s. I used them in serious photojournalism for years on my Canon and Leica rfdrs, and they show it although all of them still perform splendidly. My 50mm lenses were/are the Summilux and Canon f/0.95, and my "long" rfdr lens, Nikkor 85 2.0. Their capabilities have not changed, they are splendid, lovely things to use and delight with every image.
I did find that using some of them at small apertures with a protective filter over the lens could cause ghosting from the white letters and numbers on the front lens-retaining ring, and filled in the white with flat black paint. They are lenses that have been "there and back," and show it, but by god they've been used right.
Thank you for helping me appreciate these old friends.
Perhaps I should stipulate that I disdain using any filter over my lenses, but there are conditions which can destroy lens coatings in very short order, such as the silicate blast from a diamond drill used to rescue miners from a collapsed gold mine tunnel. For that, I considered a filter excusable. The 19mm lens still shows that assignment.

Sounds like you have had some excellent times with these lenses. I'd love to see some of your works. I'd also take the beach as a place where a filter is required. nothing like that sandy salty wind leaving stuff in your lens!

Got a user condition 35 1.5 yesterday (with a 7S and 100/2) at physical auctions in Paris. Optics are clean but looks batterd.
Tried it on an hybrid camera and must admit I have been really impressed. Really another league than the Canon RF 35 2.8 I had until now.

Even been pleased by performance at full aperture. Creamy bokeh and still very sharp. Whites glow a bit in dark atmospheres but it is more character than a flaw.

Though what is strange is that yesterday aperture was pretty easy to action. It is now quite hard. Not sure what happened as the blades are oil free (unlike my 35 2.8)..

Does someone know if it is difficult to open and fix, knowing that I dont want to touch optics but only helicoid and clean the aperture trigger.. ?

(I have spanner, rubber rings, tweezers, helicoid grease.. as I open SLR lenses I put on my hybrid from time to time..)

just a quick question, do you use a filter or
hood with this lens ?

raytoei
btw, the W-50 hood is rarer
than hen's teeth.

I also use a W-50 on mine, but I really have to crank the thumb-screw hard to get it to clamp on securely. It's almost as if the hood was designed for a lens with a slightly thicker rim. (My 35/1.5 is very early, #10020, so maybe the hood was made when later production lenses, with possibly thicker rims, were available?)

And the W-50 is rare, but not uncontainable. I see 2 on eBay right now.

I also have this problem, Ari. Maybe it better to get a screw-on off brand lens hood.

I would love to have one, but I can't seem to find a suitable wide-angle hood in 48mm size.

Try using a 48-49mm ring first, and then get an easy to find 48mm lens hood.

After a few months using this lens, I can definitely confirm it doesn't really leave my Nex hybrid camera. (and sometimes goes on the P)
I really like it's sharpness and look which is not dated, and give great results even on digital.

Regarding it's flaws, I can confirm that direct lights reeeaalllly glow at f1.5. Incident lights and dim atmosphčre give much better results at widest aperture, as sharpness is not really diminished.

Never had a Leica lens, but would be interested to know how it compares to the Summilux M 35

below shots at f1.5 and 2.8 respectively. not PPed.

Does anyone use ND filters on the Canon 35/1.5? Would anyone be able to recommend which step-up adapter would be better to use?

Regular double-sided filters will vignette with this lens. As far as I know Canon did not make an ND filter in the "Slimline Style" which were designed to work with the lens. Perhaps you could reload the camera and put in slower film. I switch rolls back and forth in bodies and it's not difficult to do. I've tried using stepdown rings with bigger filters on Canon RF lenses, and the tested results were not a success.

Two sold recently for EUR 765 (ebay 261345183744) and EUR 571 (ebay 291028262668).

Something in the front group is radioactive by the way. I measured about 2,35 µSv/h with the copy I had.

The radioactivity is news to me. Interesting.
As for the current market value, it is quite high.
I have the Canon 1.5 trio.

I've been away from the site for a quite a long while now due to my health, but now I'm slowly getting back into shooting my PinUp girls again.

My f1.5/35 is still broken, it shoots fine but the aperture blades are blocked wide open, does anyone have the name of a good Canon RF lens repair person, outside from DAG, maybe someone closer to or in Florida?

Tom

Hi Tom,
I am glad that you are feeling better. The 35/1.5 is a special lens. I would send it to a well known camera repair person. Have you used the services of Don Goldberg or Sherry Krauter?

Those Japanese sellers can ask whatever they want. It started at $1400, then $1300, then $1200, never selling each time. One did sell for $760.

Edges with M mount lenses usually look terrible wide open on the edges. Though I will say that this lens has some cool swirly bokeh.

My first version Summicron 35/2 does not have "edges" issues.

Oops, I meant the edge problem is on Sony cameras. Not on M digitals.

Just wanted to keep this thread alive lol

This lens is one of my 3 main daily drivers for film and digital.
There is a certain magical character to it that you can't find on any other lens. The only one that comes close is my other daily driver, the Summicron 40mm lol
And what keeps bringing me back is that often ill be tempted to buy a vintage V4 Summicron 35mm or Summilux. But i see sample images online of those lenses and i realize that this lens performs better wide open than those lenses hahaha. And if you decide to stop down to f2, its nearly perfect in every way. These 2 images were shot wide open at f1.5
