Erik your shots with the 35/1.7 M mount are exceedingly sharp. Never got those results from my CV 35/1.4.

I've never tried the CV 35mm f/1.4, but the pictures I've seen with it are quite sharp. Only that horrible barrel-vault distortion! A wide angle lens should be distortion free.

here we go! :-)

Thank you very much erik for your "help" to decide about this lovely lens! There are really fine pictures in this thread...

I bought mine silver the past week and at first I was shocked by its size and weight, but whenI have tried it on my Sony A7 (I'm still waiting for my M5... it is on the way from Wien...) it has been very special.

Somepictures from yesterday:

I have no shots online in the moment to show it but I wanted to throw in that it performs excellent on the M9. Better than the 35/2 V4 and my 40/2 Crons.
I am still no fan of the design but I'm getting used to it.

I just got one of these hoods for my lens, Erik. Lovely hoods but now I'm wondering what you use as a cap on it. Any recommendation?

I've found the perfect shade for this lens: the Etsumi 46mm for Panasonic Lumix 20mm F 1.7. It is small, does not interfere in the viewfinder and does not vignette. All kinds of colors are available. I have a black one, looks great.

Erik.

I found an old Canon Demi cap that fits perfectly.

This shot is with the old Ultron 35mm f/1.7 LTM. The most obvious difference is that the old lens has a little bit of barrel distortion wile the M-version has none.

Leica III, Ultron 35mm f/1.7 LTM, 400-2TMY.

35mm Ultron 1.7, LTM vs M-Mount

Are there significant differences in image quality?

LTM version is much more attractively priced.

What are your experiences between the two?

Thanks for sharing your thought and experiences!

cheers,

Two totally different lenses. You can see the two models at the cameraquest site, where it's obvious the M mount is a substantially different design.

https://cameraquest.com/voigtlen.htm

The above list starts at the wide end and moves on up the lens line. Just scroll down to the 35mm lens section.

The LTM lens is discontinued and was replaced by the new M mount lens, which has been optimized for digital sensors. I guess it all depends on what you plan to use the lens with. If film, I figure either will do. I just ordered the M mount lens to try with my M262 digital M.

The reviews of the M model look really, really good. I am currently using a 35mm f2 Summicron ASPH, which is excellent but is a sub-par performer against the light with some really nasty flare issues when the sun is the direct FOV or just off the periphery. The Ultron appears to be a winner against the light. I'll find out soon as it's supposed to be in my hands tomorrow.

I use the M mount version on digital Leica and it's as good as any Leica or Ziess lens I've owned or used. There are subtle differences in rendering between all those but the 35/1.7M is a very sharp lens already from wide open with a pretty flat plane of focus and no nasty surprises. As for shooing against the light, it's pretty good. Not necessarily perfect because it is possible to get it to flare a bit with the sun just out of the frame, but better than a lot of my Leica lenses. Best 35 I've used in respect to flare control has probably been the ZM 35/2.8. But the 35/1.7M is sharper than the ZM and IMO more consistent across the frame.

I briefly tried the LTM 35/1.7 maybe 4-5 years ago and wasn't really enamored by it. Not to say it was bad, just nothing really stood out about it, at that time.

Been shooting around with the M mount 35mm f1.7 Ultron on my M262 the last couple of days. To be honest, I think the thing is superior to the 35mm f2 Summicron ASPH. The Summicron is more compact, but they weigh about the same and the Ultron to me is just the superior optic. It certainly works great against the light, something the Summicron has failed to do every time I've tried using it that way the past 12 months.

I wonder if there's a compromise somewhere in the optics to keep the Summicron so small that contributes to the ineffectiveness against the light?

So now every two threads that share a lens name in the title will get merged because of an arbitrary suggestion of one out of the many thousand RFF members that we have ? Doug, you know I respect you but that doesn't seem right. How about checking with the thread starters first ? My original thread had nothing to do with the LTM Ultron. Plus, I cann't read it anymore on iOS/forumrunner (too big now).

Anyways, carry on.

Sorry, it seems a good idea to reduce duplication and scattered info. Was not aware ForumRunner had trouble with long threads, which RFF has plenty of...
Best wishes and enjoy the best you can.

Been using the M-mount version on my digital M262 for several days now. It has basically replaced the 35mm f2 Summicron ASPH as my standard lens, which only bests the Ultron in the compactness category. Optically, it's really not even close. Leica needs to update the Summicron ASPH, and by "update", I don't mean a few more aperture leaves and new hood...

Latest using the 35/1.7 VM with the Leica M262 near, or wide open. Seems like a very flat field lens. One can focus then recompose, placing the point of focus virtually anywhere in the frame and it'll be just as tack sharp as it would be if left in the center of the frame.

So I've been thinking about getting this lens and all the images in this thread have been doing a good job convincing me

I do have a question about the distortion. Is it actually minimal/negligible? I like to take pictures of buildings/architectural and plan on using this lens on film. If so, this seems like it'd be a good one lens kit for me.
