Here are two shots from Venice last weekend, both at full aperture and shows the 35mm lux at its worst with the highlights bleeding with flare and some coma. If you can live with this (I can) you get the character and the lightest smallest f1.4 lens available.

Unless you need the 1.4

The cron asph 35/2 may be better at f2 and up, and smaller and cost less than the 1.4 lux asph.

That's my opinion, and I think the opinion of Puts, Leica, and others. But I'm always willing to look at unphotoshopped images from any lens.

thanks Ned, Summilux pre-asph is always great for B&W. But I am quite disappointed with what a film scanner can do for BW film.

maddoc, this shot is very cool. When I looked at this "briefly", I get instant impression that it was shot under daylight. but when you look more at details and recognize the opposite

35mmdelux, may you tell why you like the 35 Lux ASPH better ?

Aaaah! I see you've tasted and understood! What a great lens it is! You have some great shots with it!

Hi NB23,
thanks for the compliment
you can see more shots with the 35mm summilux preasph on http://www.samysnider.com
I really enjoy this lens, it's so perfect, the size, the glow, the tones, the handling, thanks a lot for your advice.I would buy another one if i lost this one. Everybody who wants to have a 35mm and the Leica glow should choose the Preasph, it's so unique.

Ya, it's great!


Gabor,
I like your shot. Again, the character and the fact that it looks like daylight while it's nighttime makes the shot very special.

Just received mine in the mail, but noticed that the aperture closes unevenly. I'm assuming this is not 'normal' ? Will try and get a photo up to show what I mean

Congrats!!!

An uneven aperture (oval instead of round) can be normal. What's important is its overall diameter. Test at all f-stops and check for uneven exposure between frames. If all is well exposed, then all is normal.

Aperture blades shouldn't look, sound nor move in a flimsy way.

Ned,

Thanks for the advice. I'll shoot a test roll with it today and see how it turns out.

I'm still debating if I should switch back to the 35 ASPH or maybe buy a 28mm 2.8 Elmarit to complement this lens. This lens when scanned is super soft (i'm using a Canon 8600). Do you guys normally use unsharp mask, say 50% 0.7 and running the filter twice? I am also finding it hard to work with colours especially wide open. I'll post another shot in colour that is wide open when i find it.

f2.8 1/30 Neopan 1600 (pulled 800)

Clearly, the 35 Lux ASPH beats the preasph in term of sharpness. However, having myself a 35 Summilux ASPH, a 35 Summicron IV, and a 35 Summilux preasph, i can definitely say that my favorite lens is the Preasph one: the bokeh/tones/glow you have with the Preasph, you won't get it with an ASPH lens

yeah i can understand the draw to the glow and softness of the summilux pre-asph. In your images (which are really nice), it seems like there is a degree of unsharp mask used, i could be wrong though. I'm just curious how much unsharp mask people use with this lens. thanks

It's so refreshing to see unmanipulated photo examples from nice lenses.

My first shot with the pre-asph

Light was shocking, shot wide open on Tri-x rated 3200 dev in microphen. Hence the grain.

Hello all,

Wonderful work on this thread. I have been looking for a pre-asph Lux for some low light club photos, but will use it on both M6's and my M8. Is anybody noticing any backfocus problems, as many seem to think is typical of the ASPH verson?

Thanks,
Norm

This one I like for its colors. It reminds me of Velvia somehow.

great shots. the icon for me anyway is the 35 Lux' Asph -- sharper, crisper than my 35 IV. costs a chunk of dabloons but worth it. the only other lens I like as much is my 120mm makro-planar on a tripod.

I don't get the title but like this shot. The guy in his reflecting vest looks funny and it makes a good contrast with the background.

I'm working on my Balls to Pink floyd project for over 2 years now... It's a hard to understand project, even by me... One day I'll post the whole series.

I'm really enjoying this thread. I had completely overlooked the 35 Pre aspheric Lux until now. Still, that 1m minimum focus could be a deal breaker for me. I take a lot of shots at 0.7m.

Yes, the minimum focus distance is a bit too long.
