I can confirm that it is also a problem for the KS-15(4) (military version of the M2-R), so I would assume it would be a problem on the M2-R.

Edit: Looking closely at my lens, it appears that the problem, at least with my lens & KS-15(4), is caused by the larger lens locking pin described by xayraa33 in post #252, not the size of the lens release button. The lens will rotate to the correct locking position, but doesn't lock.

Actually, even it's not mentioned by 7Artisans, I believe it will affect not only all M4 cameras, but also early M4-2 cameras (those with red dot on the release button are fine) and early M3 cameras.

Sorry to re-post, but as I said on the previous page, my one week old 1.1 fits my M4.
Earlier articles suggested a new release in September. It is now September


Do the older lenses have this slot in the lens or does this mean it is a new batch?

My lens arrived this past weekend & has the slot as it should. However, per my earlier post, I am experiencing a "failure-to-mount" w/my KS-15(4)/M2-R (serial #1163***) that seems to have more to do w/the size/shape/position of the lens locking pin (or the slot in the lens).

The 7Artisans mounts fine on an M4 (serial #1184***, made the approximately the period as the KS-15(4)). I no longer have a regular M2 to compare, but the lens also mounts correctly on an M3 (serial #9866**) & modern (M5 & later) film & digital M bodies.

Optically, my 7Artisans front-focuses a bit at f/1.1, but nothing I can't handle by leaning forward a bit when necessary (at close distances, about the width of a frameline).

I ran into someone with a M4 and he wanted to try out the lens. It wouldnt mount. Mine was supposedly the updated version with a bigger notch as well.

Me too if it comes to that!

It certainly appears to render very nicely - and according to a review I just read its a Sonnar lens. Yummy, no wonder it renders well. In fact it's my favorite kind of yummy.

https://www.35mmc.com/29/07/2017/dj-...m-f1-1-review/

EDIT: Having said that other threads say pictures on its box show it to be an Ultron design. And yet more say its design is similar to the classic rare and expensive Zunow 5cm f1.1 which is a Sonnar. I will leave it to others with more knowledge of optical design types to comment.

Anyone's lens falling out of focus? When I first received the lens, it was bang on. Few weeks later, it forward focuses by quite a bit now.

It sounds like your focus adjustment screws may have come loose. Recalibrate (using the provided chart if you want) and retighten.

When I got mine the adjustment screw was quite loose. I had to turn it quite a few turns to tighten it.

I used the 50/1.1 again yesterday, and each image had a purple band at the edge of the image. I used a M 240 with this lens. I have been advised that a IR-cut filter is needed with this lens and the M 240 or the M8.

Oh I forgot about the adjustment chart. I did a quick calibration and it's all good now.
It's a little bit too easy to calibrate though.

Now to decide which lens to take for travel.

Mine does not do that at all, it's perfect at all distances.
It also focused perfectly out of the box with no need for any calibration changes.

The Nokton 1.1 it is.
It is fantastic on film, better than digital I think. I prefer it on film using my M7 (thread posted elsewhere on this forum) than on my M240.

That would not work. I saw the same when I use it on my M240, which is why I really only use it now on film.
If you look at the rear elements of the lens, the glass by the lens mount, you will see it is actually a very narrow circle. My Nokton 1.1 is almost twice the size in comparison. It is because of this that you get purple edges and smearing - the digital sensor does not react well to the acute angles on the corners. In comparison my Nokton does not show any of these 'defects'.

I found it only noticeable in some images and only on the edges. So worst case scenario you can frame wider, and then crop it out. Or shoot in B&W..

Another question. It seems this lens has not so much of CA and purple fringing wide open.
I wonder it is is get corrected in PP or it is the nature of this lens?

It's the nature of the lens. I just checked my unedited images and there is a little purple and green fringing wide open, but less than with my Summilux 50 Asph or Summicrons.

I happen to have both the 7Artisans and the Nikkor 50 1.2 AIS....
I shot both side by side at 1.2 on my M just now as I am home waiting for UPS to show... Exposure is the same on both (I made sure), as is the LR white balance of 5000, -2. What is obvious is the 7Artisans has a warmer tone, and while it has some purple fringing, it does not have the green fringing that the Nikon does. Perhaps because it is warmer? Dunno...
Anyway, here they are, both shot at 1.2 with no corrections applied:

7Artisans 50 1.1:



Nikkor 50 1.2 AIS:



7Artisans 50 1.1:



Nikkor 50 1.2 AIS:



Another thing that is very obvious is the bokeh is much better with the 7Artisans than the Nikkor 50 1.2 AIS. Just check out the shelf in the back.

7Artisans - $365.
Nikkor 50 1.2 AIS - $700

There is more blur, but better bokeh, I don´t think so. Would like to see more samples at slightly longer distances.

Definitely much better bokeh. Just looking at the pics u can see the Nikkor is jittery and nervous in comparison.

Thing is I am neutral in this as I own both lenses, and for the money I spent I'd have preferred the more expensive lens to be better.

I think I prefer a little jitter at 50mm. If I want "super smooth" I use a longer focal length. Maybe most would disagree with me though.

Then you'd love the Nokton 50 1.1
That lens does the jitter bug. But works great on my M5.

7a + Leica M4 + Kentmere 400

Mounts on my M4 (lens S/N is 6520xx), focused mint out of the box. I didn't shoot that much with it cause it was on loan.

Hello, Huss.

Sorry if I missed it somewhere else but what lenshood are you using with the 7a? I bought a generic vented hood which seemed to have a very short depth but even so I still get corner cut-off on my M9-P.

I use a 55-58mm step up ring, then a generic 58mm lens hood. Works perfectly with no vignetting.

I haven't seen Yeti, yet, but I'm in the progress of searching through the house for snowshoes my wife gave me for NY couple of years ago.

Also, I put 50 1.1 in my watch list. I'm watching for both now, Yeti and seven partisans lens!
