Im considering picking up a copy but Im less sold on its mid distance to infinity gestalt, even if macro shots with it look really good. It's been tough to find images though.


Two middle distance woodland images made with the 60/2.8, it is a fine lens and I'd doubt you'd regret purchasing it

Edit - 2nd photo added, a senior moment, sigh ...

Picture This! - Relying on Green

Manu, further to our discussion here are few test shots taken just before and at dusk using OVF and green dot focus confirmation on D800E. I did use tripod to prevent camera shake at speeds slower than 1/60.

WO --> f/2.8

Keep going this direction, Michael. You capture it at very interesting angle.

Jack

I tried the method you suggested and the results between LV critical focus and green dot are consistent. There is a bit of play when using the green dot which is only a consideration for close range and macro type shots where dof is very shallow. For normal shooting I'm now fine with the green after trying the procedure you suggested.

I have posted this before, but since you asked:

By the way, these are berries, not apples or tomatoes. Even in the size presented the berries are much larger than life size. I have a metal print of this image printed to 15" 20". Image shot on tripod mounted Lumix G1 camera.

Elmarit-R 60 is one of the rare lenses having correction for macro as well as far ranges. Here's one on D800E:

redisburning -- Really! I don't use the 60/2.8 as much for macro as I do for general photography! It's great throughout its focusing range. Maybe I'm spoiled, the Nikon 60/2.8 macro, the Canon 50/2.5 Compact Macro, EF-S 60/2.8 macro and especially the 100L IS macro are all outstanding throughout their focus ranges from close-up to infinity. The Leica ranks right up there.

Salgado used it extensively for his Workers and Migrations photos.

Thank you Manu and carstenw!

You should listen this one than: Montreal

I always felt that a small handful of Leica-R lenses I have exhibit slight colour shift towards blue, at least comparing to Zeiss Distagons and few Nikkor AI-s I use. Itís not a complain, but rather an observation.
My recent Leica-R purchase came with Hoya Skylight 1A pink filter so I decided to give it a try. The two test images below were taken within seconds apart and all PP settings were identical. During import into ACR I had to match colour temperature to 4975 deg; shot with filter was 4950 and without was 5000.
Comparing images below on a calibrated NEC PA series monitor to captured booklets leads me to believe that Skylight 1A filter contributed to more realistic, truthful colours. I guess there was a reason after all why the original lens owner purchased that filter in the first place.
Am I going to get Skylight 1A filters for my R lenses? Unlikely. I just thought some may find the above interesting.

JaKo, regarding your color tests, my understanding is that there were coating changes over the years for the R80, and likely affecting the color temp. If you don't mind, what's the first 4 digits of your lens? Just wondering.

Thanks agent-Jon. It's very likely that coating was identical on mid-1980s lenses as some I own were from that period:

cron 35 - S/N 3385xxx - year 1985
cron 50 - S/N 3298xxx - year 1984
lux 80 - S/N 3266xxx - year 1983

Thanks for all the comments and like, I appreciate.
Eiffel, very nice composition.
Jako, Nice set of 80lux, I like #2 the best. and thanks for illustration about color hue. Good info.

50lux E48 (zero crop, All I hope is it won't bit my lens)






35lux R WO






(stop down meter and never LV/tripod force my habit of shooting WO most of the time, though for 3 lux I have, if photos are not sharp and interesting, it is me but not lens. )

The Leica R's continue to look good! This one was taken with the VARIO-ELMAR-R 35-70 f/4 in macro mode at f/16. I really like this lens!

Well, YOU, keep doing what you doing because it looks well, to say at least
Your subject(s), composition and subdued images (meaning in a positive way; as purpously not pushed or over cooked) perfectly lock into a very unique set of portraits that seem to be distinguishly unique to your style.

Few shots from this afternoon in Point Roberts, WA (interesting US location is you ask me)

Jack, I appreciate your comments. In above 80lux set, #1 and 2 are very nice shots, especially #2 I would do the same waiting for right timing for people went to right place. Nice job. The portrait is very nice too. How do you feel Manual focus with D800? Especially 80lux.

More 35Lux R
