How do you downsample? Some algorithms attempt sharpening in the downsampling routine, which is often not all that satisfactory for ultimate results. The most effective is neutral downsampling and careful sharpening, even in multiple steps if you have the patience.


I believe the problem was PS CS6's default resampling algorithm, Bicubic Automatic. I changed to standard Bicubic and got much less spurious detail and smoother tonality.

Ah, yeah, that one is a bit harsh. I don't know why that is the default. I think Auto = Sharper. This can be set in the settings to plain Bicubic.

Those 80 Lux shots do look great: they remind me a lot of the Minolta 85/1.4G. Who knows, there may have been collaboration, given the Minolta/Leica partnerships at the time.

Also great! Looks like New Haven station?


Alwang, thanks for comments.yes,I definitely seeing Minolta & leica similarity cross the focal length.
It is San Jose train station, myson has beg us taking him to train for a while, and that is his first time.

zhangyue: Thank you for your valuable contribution and sharing experience on Summilux-R 80.
You have provided many images for comparisons between various lenses and personally I do value your input and opinions regardless if it's supported by side-by-side images or not. Thanks again!


Few touristy shots from Easter long weekend in Victoria, BC.

Jako, The more I shoot 80lux, the more I like it. I will add more photo from it later.

There is two thing I want to add in addition to optics:

1. be able to focus down to 80mm is really a plus compare to ZF85's 1M. I found myself get limited quite often with ZF. I also gain the 'glamor' look at that Minimal Focus distance.

2. Focus throw design. The lens has noticeable short focus throw compare to ZF85. from 0.8 to 1.5M, I feel it is about half of the focus movement of ZF85. It is really important to my use. I need adjust it quickly especially at around 1M. With Zeiss, I miss shots because of that. a slightly movement of my kids, I need several turning movement on my hand to catch it. I have found Leica's (all R lens I have) focus ring design is very proper, which is really help my fast shooting and keeper rate.

Both is really important for my main use but may not so much for others.

Hope this helps for people consider this lens for your main use.

Sure, to the extent that the iPhone is able to make telephoto shots with low depth of field In other words, not at all.

Lee, very nice shot, but the sharpening feels quite crunchy. How do you do that part?

Sharpening is not always about making shit lenses look decent, it's often about overcoming the AA filter itself. I don't know which camera you are using but unless it's free of an AA filter I don't see how you can NOT sharpen without a loss of image quality. Even the R 28/2.8 benefits from a standard minimal sharpen (at RAW conversion for example).

zhangyue: thank you for further input on Summilux-R 80 and Zeiss 1.4/85 lenses. One of the additional benefits of Leica is its size; Leica-R lenses are considerably smaller, or rather less bulkier than Zeiss.
At the moment I haven't given up on Zeiss 1.4/85 yet, but I have a feeling that sooner than later I will find a mint copy of Lux-R 80 and perhaps rent Zeiss 85mm to compare it for myself.


Roni1948; thank you. For me Summicron-R 50 is a great walk-around lens; WO and stopped down, close and infinity distances. On DSLR it appears nearly as compact as Voigtlander Ultron SL-II 40/2.0 + its add-on hood.

Jako, Once you got 80lux, how about its twin 35lux? they are about the same size, similar rendering

80lux all WO, let images talk.

























I promise I won't over load my kids portrait here anymore. Just show 80lux's rendering to interesting party. There are almost none 80lux portrait in this forum.

As for stop down performance, I should say it is not priority for me though it is crazy sharp at f2.8 already and f4 reach its peak. But there is no dog in short tele, especially stop down, all lens will be sharp, sharp. I should say I paid exclusive for its 1.4 specialty.

and some farmers market shots, all WO.

General question: You want faster or slower lens? Shorter or longer?


Its pretty much up to you, my favorite is 90/2 or 2.8. Almost ended buying 90/2.8 v2 recently..

I owned a 90 Elmarit, 90 Cron and 80 Lux at the same time, some time ago, and they are all three great. The Elmarit was most uniformly good, the 90 Cron add a little mood at a loss of a little performance, and the 80 Lux did the same to a much greater extent. The 80 Lux is shockingly good stopped down a few stops, which is what made it the last lens that I sold off, of the three.
