Hi John, I think you have a problem with the goggles. In the small, round window on the left, seen from front, there is a prism. I think this prism is out of position. The position of this prism can be adjusted by tiny screws. These are located in tiny holes in the black crinckle painted frame and are usually covered with black wax. BUT: to readjust the position of this prism is not a DIY-job. Most probably the prism is completely loose. The best thing you can do is contact a repairman - DAG for instance - and ask if he can fix it.

Erik.

with M9.

Maybe not the sharpest and it doesn‘t give much 3D feeling but the lens helps making the pictures look dreamy wide open and friendly when stopped down.
Actually I find the sharpness perfect wide open, it gives its character.
Even if I could wish a bit more crisp above F2.8 like a Summicron.

A very useful summary for me, an M-E owner. Thanks. I was looking around for a decent price for this lens (no luck), but having seen most of the images from this thread, I think I'm happy enough with my Summicron iv 35mm without having to get the pre ASPH Summilux.

Just found this thread and look forward to reading all of it. In the interim, here's one from my Canadian serial #280xxxx on M240

This is about f4 or 5.6 were it sharpens up nicely. 'Love to shoot it wide open for a dreamier look.

Erik,
Maybe it is just the mood I am in this morning, and maybe you just got lucky, but I love the combination of the composition and the rendering on this one. The three people in the background against the wall, the three levels of people, foreground, middle ground, and background. The three windows. The three different levels of activity of the people in the frame, the hand gesture of the hidden person middle ground contrasted with the calmness of your main subject in the foreground.
And as someone who freely admits to holding the opinion that the way in which the out of focus areas are rendered can make or break a photo, the way the three windows are rendered here is a large part of why this photo works. Some kind of crinkly double edged bokeh would have been an unfortunate distraction here.
Anyway, even if none of the above strikes anyone else, I really like this one There is just so much going on.
Thanks for posting.

Thank you Larry! This lens is a great portrait lens; I will see if I can print another portrait taken with this one.
