Did my Sunday morning walk around White Rock Lake in Dallas (9.2 miles) this past weekend with my Leica M262 and the three Voigtlander M mount lenses I own, the 21mm f1.8 Ultron, 35mm f1.7 Ultron and 75mm f1.8 Heliar Classic.
Wonderful set, and compared to what it would cost for me to upgrade my same Summicron/Super Elmar lenses to Summilux, a downright bargain for the performance level achieved. I personally think the 35/1.7 Ultron trumps the 35 Summicron ASPH (at least, the one I own) 7 ways to Sunday, the 21/1.8 Ultron from f4 is pretty much the equal of the 21 Super Elmar, with the extra speed when needed or wanted and the 75/1.8 Heliar definitely outperforms the Summicron against the light.
The 35/1.7 Ultron VM is a real champ against the light..
I can choose to stop it down (I believe f8 here) and capture everything sharp from near to far..
or, open it up with beautiful background blur..
I love being able to do this exact same thing with the 21/1.8 Ultron..
The 75mm f1.8, shot straight into the sun. This image is also cropped a little bit..
35/1.7, around f2 or so. I do not bother trying to find a "code" that works on these lenses. Just leave them uncoded and process to taste in Adobe Camera raw.
21/1.8, around f4 or so..
