Mine came today.



Front focus is 1-1.5 cm on 0.8m.

Two at f2.






One at f2.8.



Focusing, taking on infinity is fine. It came unmodified. Framing with 50mm framelines is not easy for me on M-E.

Hmm, never noticed front focus on mine -- now I'll have to check....
I had mine modified to bring up 35mm frame lines, milled for 6-bit coding and replaced the original focus tab with a v3-Summicron-style tab. Love this lens....

BTW, the Nikon HN-N101 hood (from the 10mm f/2.8 lens for the Nikon 1 camera) makes the 40mm M-Rokkor very compact, with virtually no intrusion into the viewfinder:

that's a nice little compact hood solution.

who did the custom focus tab modification for you? is that an original leica tab?

Don Goldberg did all the modifications. Pretty sure it's a generic tab, not a Leica part.

I owe this lens two of my most "flickr-successful" images, but taken on APS-C sensor of Ricoh GXR M ( and on the first and second day of owning it )
