Filter size and hood will tell you which model it is. Series VI (shares 12564 hood with first 50 'cron-R) is the first model, Series VII (has pins for locking hood) is 2nd model (David Llado's photo), E55 (built-in sliding hood) is third model (G-W-N's photo).



Thanks. I purchased an E55 version.

I just got a 90mm Elmarit R for my Canon 5D II and loving it. I don't know if I can can go back to using the L zooms. I'll have to look into adding a 35mm Elmarit to the kit. There are some very good deals available on the used market. Here are some portrait shots wide open.

Beautiful shots Mike - I love the compositions, with foreground leading the eye into the background, and the colours are delicious. There is a fly in the ointment for me though, which is this: for some reason the pictures seem to entirely lack either microcontrast, or 3D effect, or some quality which makes one feel one is actually there.

I was wondering when you'd jump in, Richard.

I have noticed this 3-D effect on Zeiss glass, but even on Canon's 24-70L, depending on the lighting.
I think the post-downsizing sharpening has some effect, but it often seems to boil down to Leica
giving the best color and geometry performance and bokeh, and Zeiss giving the 3-D.
Perhaps the point of focus has much to do with it too. If the subject to background separation is
greater [subject close, and focus on it, rather than infinity or hyperfocal] if should be easier to achieve.

This Zeiss 35-70/3.4 shot seems to bear this out:

Mike, very nice shots. Beauties.

Mike,
Great shots until I hit the sunset (or sunrise?) shot, which is simply sublime.

Just when I thought that I had my 35mm wish list sorted! Curses.

How bad is Ver I of this lens (Elmarit-R 35mm f2.8). Heard a lot, but difficulty finding any examples...

Really like your third image. BTW what adapter are you using?
