Thanks for all the comments and likes I appreciate.

Michael, have you reduced vignetting (I know you like to shoot WO)?


Just check back, There are no lens profile applied and no vignetting adding/minus did on picture. Maybe because of slightly back-lit. I feel 35lux can have strong vignetting depend on focus distance, not so much with 80lux.

A few with 35lux R






















Here is one more with 80lux






I have infinity family pics like these with Leica R almost all WO in my lib. Those are absolutely my favorite pictures to keep me continuing shooting almost everyday.

Love the shots as always, Michael, but I've never seen the Lux-R 35 design attributed to Mandler. I think he was only responsible for the pre-ASPH Lux-M and the Summicrons for both.

Thanks Michael. First of all; great shots, as usual.
Yes, it may be the background light that brightens frames edges. Today I took few shots and ARC profiles for R only remove vignetting.



Shot at f/2.8, slight vignetting added:

Nice portrait Jack! So...how would you compare the R Cron 50 vs the M 50 ASPH vs CV 50 ASPH? I know the Cron R 50 was my first intro into Leica, and I loved it(loaned to me), and subsequently made me purchase my R Lux 50E55...which is still my fav 50. Which in turn makes me want to get an M Lux 50....and so and so forth!!
AND thank God I can't afford a Lux R 35, or M version....

Sorry I had doubt during post but thought it is mandler design. I should have just post in Leica R thread. Sorry, guys.

nice shot again, Jako

Thanks Gregg and Michael!

Gregg, after recently selling Zeiss MP 2/50 ZF I feel that my 50mm set is completed. Nikkor 50/1.2 AI-s is in its own unique class, where C/V Nokton 1.5 asph and Lux-M asph are very alike and both will be used mostly WO (Lux may see more stop down action if used for landscaping)
Now, Summicron-R 50; similarly it was my first alt lens and considering its immaculate condition most likely I will never sale it. The Cron 50 is great at f/2.8 to f/5.6 and it produces fabulous colours, so it will see many uses from portraiture to urban shots and *scaping (it's lately mounted on my Canon SLR camera loaded with transparency film)

One day soon I will compare it to Lux-50 at f2.8 and f/4 to see $4k difference, if any

Cross post from Sony A7r 90mm Leica Elmarit-R
This lens amazes me when I hit the focus spot on. It just takes a bit more patience and with my camera, the use of the focus magnifier.

Gotta love the mutts. Both with the Summicron-M 90 pre-A.

Slowly, I start to understand how to use the Summilux-R 1.4/80mm. I really like how it renders, so it does it's job very well. Whenever something doesn't look good enough, I blame the user (aka me).

Nice shots, kry27! For my own education, could you tell me what apertures you used, because I feel this is the 80 'Lux at its best?

The first two were at f/2.8, the third might be f/2, or then it's still f/2.8. I cannot remember.
The fourth is f/2 for sure.

Thanks, Kry27. My findings are the same, f:2.8 is oftent the best, or at least f:2.0.

Yes. f/1.7 or f/1.4 is very dreamy, and has it's use. Sometimes.

For pictures one wants to be sharp, somewhere, 2.8 is the way to go. Or 2.5, 2.0, sometimes.

I don't know...mine copy is very sharp WO. It's just a matter of nailing the focus. Zhangue's copy WO is sharp, too. And when you nail it...the lens really shines!

I said I got to learn. So long, using somewhat smaller apertures helps getting enough sharpness. I am by no means of the opinion the lens is soft or so - at least I have nobreason tobthinkbtherebisbsomething wrong, so long.

Got to test it at 1.4 more.

I understand where Phillipe and Roland are coming from, since those sentiments are what made me decide I was better off "trading down" to the Summicron 90. But I don't disagree with Gregg. The Lux is sharp (enough) wide open. The problem isn't the in focus areas, but the harsher transitions between in focus and out of focus and the watercolor bokeh. Used at the right distance with the right background, the lens is capable of some beautiful stuff wide open, but for general use, including most things focused closer than 3M, the results are consistently better stopped down to f/2 or slower. Just my opinion, of course.

And a snapshot with the Lux-M 35 pre-A. My older brother holding his first grandchild for the first time.
