Sadly...... Because these little cats are waiting to be sold.... This photo was taken at the front of the pet store. We can do nothing..... Just wish they can have a good home soon.

my feelings are a bit mixed. when it is good, it can render crisp in-focus and average out-of-focus areas

sometimes the out of focus areas can give you a headache

I think mine is very sharp, well-made and smooth, too. Very fast handling.
First shot is wide open at 1/60th, Fomapan 400.
Next two are at about f8, 1/125th, Fomapan 400. All D-76, scanned from prints.

I just received a version 1 from a fellow RFF member ;-)

Unfortunately, this sample shows quite a loose optical cell, but I will test ride it for a while until it goes on the bench for a deserved overhaul.
I like, what I see so far. … and my usual scenery for testing a new lens for infinity performance wide open:

Taken one some months ago for about half the current price.....the focus works right, mechanically smooth, but with a faulty blade in diaphragm and a bit of haze between lenses....I put a bet on this lens, if I'm lucky with the CLA I'll have it for an affordable price.
Mounted on an M camera is hugly a lot.....it's very small....too small may be....

PS: strange filters thread (40 mm?) but I've got the original UV filter.....

Davide, I would not use the original filter with this lens. Mine has been taken off directly after the first evening with the lens - it provokes very ugly reflections and ghosts.

I like the small Canon - it isn't too small in my thinking (say's a guy, who finds the Noctilux, 90/2 or 75/1.4 not really bothersome).

It is a really nice and petite lens, to have with you, or just go completely light, but still have a very nice fast~ish lens for more dim light.

- a few drive by's more from the two day Canon ownership:

Beautiful Rob, I like the last two a lot!

Here is the outcome of me, having the Canon and a 35 Lux ASPH with me, when seeing this flare test scene ;-)

If you can find an Ednalite #617 adapter, you can use Series VI filters and hoods. Don't know what the equivilent Tiffen adapter would be.

How would you rate the Canon 35/2 in comparison to a pre-asph 35/1.4 Lux?

Raid, although, I do have a Canadian pre ASPH 35 Summilux here, I didn't shoot it yet.
But, I do see things in the pictures of the Canon 35/2 LTM version 1, I bought from a forum member here, which remind me very much of the look of the pre ASPH 35 Summilux.

These things are, what I like about the pictures with the pre ASPH (overall softer look, a lot lower contrast, than the modern ASPH lenses, not clipping blacks, but giving smooth tones into the shadows).

Well, the one thing, I found, the Canon is prone to is it's ugly behavior under direct light, like with the Maserati above.

The flare has not a beautiful, geometric nature, but looks like a wave across the frame without even shape - one must use a lens hood with the Canon (oh and screw filters, especially the vintage, original Canon ones - they work like a magnet for washed out detail and reflections)!

The Canon 35/2 handles absolutely beautifully - great ergonomics for it's tiny size!
It is comparable in size to the Leica 35 Summicron version IV, but with an overall smaller of the barrel.

The only thing, one could wish for, is the inclusion of a focussing tab, which would make pre focussing easier (not, that the distance markings in meter are any difficult, to read in any light - I love, how well Canon made these).

One character, I like about the Canon as well, is it's natural light falloff, when shot wide open.
The center of the frame is sharp and contrasty, and the light falloff creates a certain focus, a magic to the center of the frame.
This works very nice with human subjects - I find.
I like that character with the pictures, I see from the 35 pre ASPH Summilux, and I love, that the Canon has this too.

One remark regarding shooting the Canon with digital Leica!

When I use the Canon on the M8.2 or uncoded on the M9, it does show some ugly red edges and an ugly "extreme" vignetting towards the outermost edge of the corners.

This doesn't look nice in my opinion.
I use the Canon manually coded in the menu of the M9 as a pre ASPH Summicron - this way, it really looks nice and natural.

Question:
Is the distance scale centered on top of the lens barrel with the version 2 Canon, or is it the same centering around the viewfinder window, as with version 1?
Although, this might be a fun gimmick, in my opinion, it doesn't work very well for checking distance, while pre focussing.
With such a tiny lens, it is better positioned right on top.

Thanks - I really like this little lens.
It's small.
It's light.
It doesn't clip shadows.
It has a very organic, natural rendering, but still shows sharp detail, where it matters.

It has one fatal flaw though - being prone to flare.
… which leads me to: "Where can I find a nice lens hood, that helps against the flare, but doesn't ruin the nice small size and ergonomics?"

I bought this lens some days ago, and I am very glad to use it, It has a good rendering color and bokeh, I can compare It with a Leica Summicron IV that I've had.

If you can't find a 40mm hood (and I've looked around for one to put on my 50/1.8), an Ednalite 617 adapter for Series VI will fill the bill. Then you can get a decent Series VI hood, and filters. Mine is a really nice plain black metal no-name brand hood, and you should be able to get one in wide-angle from the usual sources. It looks better than the original Ednalite or Kodak hoods.

Small, light, sharp. Prone to flare as others have noted, and the bokeh can be grim. I find that a 40-40.5mm step-up ring makes an ok hood, since the front element is so deeply recessed. Plus its easier to find a cap for 40.5mm

OOF areas look unusual in some photos but not all of them -- is this a planar based design?

Agreed - it is only occasionally that the bokeh bites you. As to whether this is a planar design, I defer to anyone more knowledgeable ...

Haha - nice one Tom - he looks boss!

I will have to strip the sample down, I bought here on RFF and adjust for the play of the optical cell in the focus mount.
Anybody has done this before here - any tips?

I think, you read too much into my "test" ;-)
I got many 35mm lenses, liking them all, especially liking the Canon 35 f2 LTM.

I always shoot a newly bought lens and compare it's behavior to the lenses, I know, so whats the deal?

I thought, it would be interesting, to see the difference between these two lenses wide open in the same scene and same light (a very difficult strong street lamp from up, outside the frame).
I was quite surprised, but not in a way of "Man, this Canon sucks!" but more like "Man, I looove that little Canon 35!"

Hmmm, I think you are undervaluing the Canon... it is $500-600 these days.
