90mm Summicron photos

Hello everybody,
I know that 90mm isn't the most popular focal length among rf users, but those of us who use them....lets see some photos.......

Afghan refugee, Kashmir.....Pakistan


Kolkata, India


Gharamipara, Kolkata.....India


I use an early verison of the 90mm Summicron....it is a big lens but I don't care.......I use a medium yellow filter for black and white....anyways....lets see what other 90mm Summicron users are shooting....cheers, Michael

That one of the hands is quite beautiful, the gritty feeling fits the image perfectly.

I think the Summicron 90AA is incredibly sharp.

Superb job, Michael! Here's my very humble contribution to this thread.

With an old version of the 'cron 90, San José, Costa Rica (Scala) in 2005


Same trip, same town, but Ektachrome 200



Koln, Germany, with a newer version and using Kodachrome 25 (2006)



Thanks!

Here are two images of the cat we adopted in December which were captured with my M6 TTL, Metz 54 MZ-3 flash set for TTL metering with the 3502 module between both, 90mm APO/ASPH Summicron, and Fuji's Acros 100 processed in undiluted ID-11 for 6:45 minutes at 68 degrees. These were printed on Ilford's RC glossy paper.

Thanks everybody for the nice comments.....
Hey EnochRoot, I really like that last photo (the fan/feet photo)..very cool

"That one of the hands is quite beautiful, the gritty feeling fits the image perfectly."
sepiareverb
If you look at her hands, you can see signs of arsenicosis....it's not a good sign...anyways, thanks for the nice comment.....
here is another one from a story that is part of the "hands" photo....



all photos were shot using an m6ttl, 90mm summicron (early version), tri-x and kodak 100vc slide film

I am not crazy about the size of this photo...I am linking it to my flickr and if I choose the next size up (695x1024) it seems too big...and this size seems just a little too small....oh well...lets see some more photos from 90mm summicron users

cheers, Michael

it's a real POS, isn't it? it's nice and quiet, but they die rather fast when under constant use.

These were all taken with my 1st version summicron. My scanner doesn't do this lens justice.

Beautiful contrast. I've noticed it in your stuff before, and wondered how you achieved it. I think it must be the yellow filter.

Opposite ends of the social strata no doubt, but the 90 doesn't care!

Hi
great photos in this thread! Esp. love michaels portraits! the rich color saturation (also because of the colorful subjects) and cristal clear drawing really make them stand out!

I once borrowed a 90SAA from a friend and did some family portraits with it, I was blown away by the details and fine tones I got with the 90 at f2.4 - 2.8 and Acros 100, no other lens I tried in 35mm came close to the Summicron 90 AA, almost a LF aestetic :-)

Here´s some of my favorite street shots with the 90SAA. not the best lens for street b/c of the weight and looong focus throw but the sharpness makes up for that. (allthou I´m definately more of a wideangle guy shooting the 90 was so much fun that I jumped for a TE90 a week after I had to give her beck)


wide open: (on the wet print you can count the little teeth on the jackets zipper)


stopped down:

I received my 90mm Summicron-M (E55, last pre-ASPH) last week (Thanks again to member barjohn !) and very pleased with the results so far. One example from the first roll with that lens:
