MTF charts of Heliars 50mm

Perhaps these MTF charts of the wonderful Heliars 50F2 and 50F3.5 taken on a A7RII would help the forum

Do you also have an MTF chart of the Color-Skopar 50mm f/2.5?

I like what I get from Summaron or Elmar, but it's quite difficult to get one in perfect condition, and price should be pretty high.

I just find the little voigtlanders a little bit contrasty and not than sharp (well, actually only noticed it with my old 21/4 LTM).

35&50 or 25&50 it's a great combo to part with.

Black and Chrome are identical in optical performance. Mine was just a joke.

Note, however, that for some lenses (not sure about the Skopar) that the chrome versions of the lens tends to be heavier and made of brass as opposed to lighter alloys.

Good choice, but don't go by Erik's pictures when judging a lens. He sprinkles magic dust on his prints. It would seem that in his capable hands, a negative from a plastic lens would yield just as good a print.

Very nice pitures, Doug! The Color-Skopar 50mm also shines on digital.

Really an excellent lens with T-MAX 400 for these precise and formal shots.

I confess that I really want the Ultron 1.5, but for now I love the results and superb handling of this little brass gem.

The Color-Skopar is much handier.

The Elmar-M is optically maybe better (not much), but very much more expensive and a bit clumsy.

The Elmar-M will not fit screw mount Leicas.

There is no Nikon-S mount version of the Elmar-M.

So: Color-Skopar.

Erik.

I was talking about the Elmar-M LTM, first version, the M version is one of my favorites For my Leica II.

Have You wet printed any with the little skopar, Erik? Good quality? Too much distortion?

I've been offered a S version for S2, but I don't know if I'll like Nikon RF more tan barnack system. Maybe finder is better for 50mm.

No, the Color-Skopar has not much distortion, but the Elmar has absolutely none. Optically the Color-Skopar is much better than the old Elmar: more contrast and a nice sharpness. It is very good for wet printing, much better than the old Elmar.

The S Color-Skopar 50mm is perfect for the Nikon S2.

Erik.

I love the size and handling of this little gem. It does a great job in digital as well - attached is with a Leica M-D. Lightroom now has a profile for this lens, as well as most of the Voigtlanders.
