Alex, your samples along with Paul's do reminder my 50lux ASPH M, which I feel sometimes, bokeh is a little bit (too) smooth. It could be just distance ratio. but it is kind of new to me. I will look for it further with more samples.

Thanks for share.

Michael, I'm never use the m-system... seems that R-lenses enough for me from Leica I'm really understand you now... a 1-2-3 years ago when i first time meets with all lenses in the range 35-90 step by step i was in the incredible condition. Now - less...

My feeling is the 50 Lux ASPH-M is a bit smoother, more gaussian neutral. These R50E60 images remind me of some 50 Lux-M pre-ASPH images in terms of background rendering. The blur discs have a bit more edge to them. There is a bit more shape and roundness to out of focus objects, like the out of focus photographer behind the painter, than I would expect with the ASPH-M. I also see this in the skyline of Paul's images on the previous page. But you could also be right that it's a matter of camera/subject/background distance ratios... In any case, it looks to be a fabulous lens.

Ron, I agree with you after go through my flickr to see 50lux sample I have so far. it definitely has more blur with the M.

Want to show how I mean 'smooth' Hopefully, people don't mind I post M in this thread. All 50lux WO

If you have both Lux R and M, maybe you can do a side by side test.

That would be great.

Thank you.

Are any of you AE180 owners using the STA 1 tripod collar with the lens? I'd be interested to learn more regarding usability and stability.

TIA,

Ron

Used with the DMR it rates a solid 'meh' from me. Stability is adequate, rotating the camera between horizontal and vertical is fiddly, the locking knob is on the wrong side (too close to the DMR's hand grip) and there's very little clearance to operate the aperture ring. The Burzynski tripod collar gets much better reviews.

I have no personal experience with the Burzynski. I have heard that the shipping charges from isarfoto.de are outlandish and the shipping charges from photo-nature.fr (same company, in France) are reasonable.

All old 180/2.8 has the normal designed aperture unit:
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1166710
The blades long and "no ninja" at near WO position

The most modern 180/2.8APO has a short blades - this is reason of ninja. For exapmle, this is mine, shot from seller:

Testing out the Elmarit 19 (ROM) for the first time....

I think it's a keeper....

telyt, many thanks for your feedback regarding the STA1. Much appreciated!

Since stability is key with the D800, I'll probably opt for the Burzynski. Foregoing a collar will likely not be an option, considering the weight of the AE 180...

The Zeiss Distagon 21/2.8 (both the former C/Y and the current ZE/ZF.2) is also a stellar performer. I personally prefer 20-21mm focal lengths to 18-19mm. The latter is usually too wide for my taste, resulting in unnatural looking perspectives.

Edit: although I do like the shot with the bridge - well done!

Paul, did you have to make any (irreversible) modifications to you Elmarit-R 19 and, especially Lux-R 50 E60 lenses?

Ron Pfister wrote: I personally prefer 20-21mm focal lengths to 18-19mm...

Similarly, I found 16mm UWA I used for a short while rather distracting. For my needs Distagon 21mm may be the maximum wide ride ticket. I have free use/access to Elamrit-R 19 but this lens will not be used WO, so LV/stopped down would be the only option for me, in which case Zeiss 21/2.8 is a better choice for my needs (and it has funky use at close distance, WO!)

I have tried ze21 before...it is a wonderful lens, but....
Two things turned me off ... Size and distortion...

I have been using Contax exclusively until recently...
I am now going back to Leica color....

BTW, I bought this R19 already shaved ....

My Summilux 50 E60 was not modified, but somehow it clears the mirror of my 5D Mk III....
I have read that the E60 version clears the mirror of FF camera.

Paul, I like your 2nd bridge shot. I seems remember you post one similar in M thread with 21/2.8??
You are so fast to accumulate R glass, and they are all top performers. so, when 280f4 happen?

Derek, 2nd one is great. They are great photo though I don't feel they are sharp enough. your photos cover wide from bird to city to landscape and portrait, and they all wonderful.
