So I have a DR Summicron now and I tried it out on my M10. Close focus works, even with the goggles (though the view is a little wonky) but without the goggles the focus stops at 10m on mine. Reportedly there are some out there that will focus to infinity but as far as I understand it will require modification to do so.

On most digital M Leicas, the DR Summicron will only work in close range. The goggles have nothing to do with fitting. The lens cam hits the inside of the body and I'm sure there are a few out there who tried focusing to infinity and succeeded...
In prying the camera about 4mm wider. It's a great lens on digital in close focus, otherwise get a Rigid version as it is the same lens. The modification of the DR is the removal of the close focus cam and basically destruction of the lens. Afterwards it is just a 51.9 Rigid Summicron that weighs a lot.

Sounds about right to me Phil, I'm not hugely pressured to use it on my M10 anyways as it strikes me as an ideal 50 for black and white film work. It'll live on my M4 along with my 21mm Super Angulon.

I'm working on building a more modern lens kit for digital anyway.

That's my Leica kit as well. M4 with a 50mm DR Summicron and a 2.1cm O Nikkor on an adapter. You can travel around the world with a small light kit like that and not want for another lens. Except maybe a 135mm once in a while.

Just received my Leitz Summicron-M 50mm f/2.0 "Rigid" yesterday. Optical is in like new condition which is hard to find nowadays.

Here are the test shots that were taken by Leitz 50 2 Rigid. I am pretty satisfied with the results provided by this 50 years old lens. Iy has a very elegant rendering.

Not to hijack, but are Leitz glass prices rising faster than the temp in Texas?

Funny, I've been trying to sell a DR summicron for a month now but no takers.

Prices seem to have fallen as well. Maybe because it's not compatible with digital bodies.

Thank you, Pan, this is on the eastern shore of England (WWII bunkers) not far from Harwich in 1980.

One of my favorite lenses. I have to take it for a spin this summer but I have too many other to play with.

My 50/2 Rigid seems to be a bit on the softer side but I like how it renders.

Great pictures, Giganova, they're all great. Fantastic shots. Are the pictures from Buenos Aires or also from other places? I would love to go there for making pictures!

I love that very famous picture of Cartier-Bresson that is shot with an Elmar 35mm, btw. I never realized that the pictures are similar to each other. A great honor for me.

I don't think it is the lens but the way the pictures are scanned or printed that they seem to be a bit on the soft side. Or are they digital?

Hi Erik --

I have been to Argentina 8x now. Buenos Aires, where I usually go, is an amazing city, so full of life! Last time I only took my M4 with 50/2 rigid and loved this minimalistic setup. No fussing around, no distractions.

Regarding the softness of my Rigid, good point that my scanner (Plustek) might be a bit out of focus. I have another scanner and will try to re-scan one negative to compare the sharpness of my scanners.

Amazing photographs!

I use an Epson V600 Photo. I scan my pictures @ 3200 dpi /16 bit grey. I never had any sharpness issues.
