28/2 summicron images......

I did the unthinkable last monday. It's not quite here yet. Please, if you have one, show us something

(BTW the next fanciest lens I own is a v4 50/2)

I also did the unthinkable recently (my next fanciest lens is Zeiss C Sonnar 1,5/50 - that's like 3 times less fancy )

Those are on crop (M8), though...

I see from your comment on the Ara Guler portrait that you found another from the 28/2 Summicron on the M8. Here is another 2 from the M8. I'll post a few more as I locate them in my gallery, some low light film shots as well.

Here's a shot on Delta 3200 at 1600 in the small room and difficult light the lens was a blessing.

The 28/2.0 ASPH is one of my most used lenses. These are both wide open:

Hands down this is THE absolute best Leica lens made today... and I've gone through almost all of them.

Some images taken with the 28 Cron:

Below is one of the most recent, taken with the M9-P.

This is my favorite lens and gets the most usage. Permanently mounted to my M6 so I had to buy another M-body so I could use my new 50 Lux ASPH. A 28 Cron and a 50 ASPH is a perfect pair, but two bodies are needed.

wow, another very striking shot, semrich



Was i correct in my guess your wonderful study of Ara Gular was shot with m8



christ, tightsqueez, what a shot! But, hey what's that i see---no no it could not be........B...no I won't say it

you weighing in on this one makes me much more at ease with a fair stretch

other great shots too.

more. this lens wants more...

Thanks to all who liked the shots I included here for this lens.

uhoh7, the Ara Guler shots were both film and M8, my first one was with a IIIF 50/3.5 Elmar. I printed, signed it and gave it to him.

Here is an M8 shot of him signing his book:





You can be happy with the 28 Summicron as you can see, and one last low light shot on Delta 3200.

One thing I've noticed about mine: the focus ring turns quite easy. Some other owners have mentioned the same...do you guys notice that?

Yes, my example is quite 'slippery' in this regard. Almost is as frictionless as an AF Nikkor in MF mode. I had a second one which was more damped, but was not a 6-bit lens, so I kept this one and have gotten used to it. I also like the throw on the 28/2.0- absolutely perfect for me.

BUMP!

Lots of nice images here!

I LOVE my 28 F2.0 and don't have anything to show since I don't yet own a scanner. I've used mine wide open and it's sharp out to the corners and has great color saturation.

Let's see some more!

I bought an Elmarit ASPH, but I wanted a 28 summicron. Someday.

M9 with Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH

Had this as a loaner at a workshop for a couple of hours. I will own one someday . . . . .

Just wonderful in it's rendering! Shadow detail out the wazoo and highlights that aren't too blocked-up! It's as if the lens gives you extra exposure latitude as soon as you mount it on the camera body!

Thanks for sharing!

28/2 lens was your most used lens, then you swapped on 28/2.8 Asph.
Why, if you can tell me?
