Hmm, strange that you can not screw out the lenshead completely. I have both an M2 version and a goggled version (M3) and I can use the lenshead from the M2-version into the M3-version and vice versa without any problems!

Before we start putting too many photos in this thread, keep in mind we already have a sticky at the top of this sub forum for summilux 35mm pre-asph shots. Please post them there!

Thanks for put in the time to do a comparison!

Is jsut me or? I feel like the photo from v2 is sharper and has stronger contrast compare to v1. I am not saying which is better, but I've always heard the v1 is sharper than v2...

Yes, on the target it is sharper (may have to do with the camera used; all rangefinders differ a little bit) but my goal was to show that the lenses are totally different, not to show wich one is sharper on the target.

I've made optimal scans from both negatives. The contrast of the scan of the v2 was much lower, so I adapted the curves of the v2 until they reached the same level of black on the darkest parts of the image: the dark parts in the Leica sign in the background.
Careful study of the background learns that the lenses are completely different.

And look at the high lights on the sugar pot on the left.

Erik.
