I just shot another roll on my main Canon IVSB, and I'm really starting to like this lens!

What is the close focus distance on the 50/1.5? I have the 50/1.8 and it's a full meter+. But a few of these shots look noticeably tighter than that.

Jeezus... and I bought mine for $200 at a show last spring. Had some coating issues inside, but nothing big.

It shoots best in Black N' White I think, but with filters or color correction it can be as "punchy" as the Nikkor is in color, (the Canon seems to draw to a reddish cast and the Nikkor more to the blue). I think the Canon is also less likely to flare as the original Zeiss Sonnar or the Nikkor SC does, but you need a hood, (original Canon is rare) but aftermarket screw-in is on evilbay 40mm.

I am a big fan of this Canon, but I have to use it more often, I find myself always picking the original 1940's Sonnar out of my bag to use on my IIIC K while it's lighter than the Canon, but the build quality is much much better on the Canon as the original CZJ Sonnar is/was........I'm just lazy when I don't use the Canon

It is MAYBE? the BEST of all the Sonnar variations to use on a Leica M, due to it's weight, it gives perfect balance and add a soft release and wola!.......Leica M8 owners take notice!

If you don't have this lens, I suggest you find one now, while prices are not going to ever go down on these again.

I sold my Nikon 5cm 2.0 and then I traded a really nice lens for a Canon 50/1.5. I became convinced that I wanted to use such a lens.

I respectfully disagree (it's all a matter of taste, really) - I think Nikkor is better. It's sharper and has a huge advantage - it can focus closer. Otherwise they are very similar IMO. Had both and after running some tests sold Canon and kept the Nikkor LTM 50/1.4. But I do think that Canon is a very good lens too.

I just shot another roll of Fuji 400 Superia through mine on a Canon P. I'm enjoying the lens, not as sharp as the F1.8, but nice look.

I am fairly certain that the Canon 50/1.5 was optimized for F4 and know that the Nikkor was optimized for wide-open.

I changed the shim on my Canon to optimize for F1.5, and it made a real difference. It is sharp, the Bokeh is smoother than the Nikkor. The Nikkor has close-focus ability that few Leica mount lenses can match. I made a J-8 match it.

Beautiful portrait Squinza. I've been using my 5D + 24-70 lately and thinking it was something special, but then you see something like this and realize my Canon Sonnar is all I really need.

Thanks, Koni and Chris!
It is part of a set taken on last sunday: I was shooting with 5DII and 200mm/2, but had with me my M8. I think I took 300 photoes with my DSLR and maybe 3 with the Leica, but this one really deserve a mention, even among the shining perfect photoes taken with the 5D: modern and vintage glass renders very differently, but both have a place in my bag!

Squinza - I shoot a 5D as well and really like the images, I just wish I could put my vintage glass in front of that great sensor (and still have AF, metering etc etc). Shots like this with an M8 get me to wondering if it would be a good companion to the 5D. I'd hate to give up my M3 or M6, and as long as M8 prices aren't comparable I'm in no danger of selling, but if they were closer then I'd seriously consider trading up. Digital processing and workflow is far less onerous than film and that's worth a lot right there. Add in the images you've shown and it gets harder and harder to resist.

Please post more if you would, I'd love to see them.

Chris

When I first got one, I didn't much like the oof rendering of the Nikkor 50/2 relative to other lenses. I appreciated the engineering feat that is its close focus ability, but on film this was largely useless to me. Putting this lens on a Nex has given me new appreciation for it, however. Quite versatile now that I can verify the close focus in real time.

[Funny note - my local shop tech was discussing the nikkor close focus design and he broke his Japanese into English only once, to call it the "God lens." ]

I used this lens ...and i find it okay for my copy...


Just for a little fun of it, can you tell the difference between the 3 which is from the 1.4 and which is from the 1.5? Oso which is from a 1.8?

All the shots are shot wide open and around the min focus distance...sorry for the different pics...didnt really do a test shot for all these 3 lens....maybe i should one day

It's going to be a great experience, Pan F. I think this is the best rangefinder camera and lens they made.
