^^^ Thank you for info on Rokkor 58/1.2
From images I saw Rokkor has very smooth and creamy bokeh. I will follow your posts in Rokkor & f/1.2 threads to see how you make it look with familiar subjects and your PP.

I will eventually use my copy once mirrorless FF cameras with add-on OVF are available. Till then it will have to wait in the bottom of my drawer drawer.

Back to your Leica ZOOM experience. Please let us know your impressions once you get to use them for a while.


Few shots from this evening; in a flowery mood.

Jean, Enjoy the set. Love the color and detail.
Jack, ĎAge of Innocenceí is great, I feel their happy.
Alex, It certainly looks that way. But actually, it is better than putting money in bank right now.

One from yesterday.

Halfmoon Bay, (sadly, I didnít bring 21-35mm, and miss many interesting shot in WA, there are many opportunity there.)

I brought 35cron, 58mm Rokkor (a new king in my book, the more I use it, the more I am impressed.) and 80-200mm(great lens, cover all my need from 100-200. Almost equal a set of prime performance. Especially before 150mm. F4 is reasonable for Tele.) It is a family out, so no tripod. all snap shots

6D with 35cron, f8? more later

Thanks for comments. The place called Half moon Bay. a 40min drive from here Google's hometown. We spend half day there having brunch at Ritz Carlton and then walk around at beach for about a hour.

Lovely shot.

I too have been looking into the 58mm Rokkor. I see and hear good things. Which version seems to be the one to get?

Thank you guys.

Alex, the first shot is great!

Great scenery, Michael. It looks like a nicely kept golf course.
I follow your Rokkor posts and I am glad I decided to get one too. Which version do you have?

Well, Manu, your lens collection is getting bigger each week Congrats on your new 'R' glass!
Looking forward to see some images. Although not the same focal length or speed but let us know how it compares to Zeiss 100MP.

I just bought this lens as well and am using it on my Leica M240. It is actually a very good performer.

My impression is the glass has copy variation. Mine seems good enough to me. Don't be fooled by its 55mm filter thread, the glass is huge and heavy. I feel almost like hold a 85mm 1.4 Lens. but it does have some play, which is not surprising for the amount of glass inside. Build quality is good but not up to Leica or even ZE/ZF standard. As I feel the focus is very smooth without enough Damping. (could be just my copy, which also show inconsistency at around 1M)


ah, missed this post when i was asking you about how you felt about the rokkor vs the nikkor. for some reason i stopped getting notifications for this thread.

sounds like your rokkor's helicoid was probably relubed with the wrong grease. rokkors typically have stiffer damping than most other lens brands from the same time period and it definitely shouldn't have any play in the focus.

Thanks for all the comments.

Jones, My Rokkor is metal focus ring version. 'Legend' said Metal version has better build and optics. But I don't know about optics and wouldn't trust it, but build should be true. See Sebboh's comment above. He has a lot more experience on Rokkor
Manu, congr! look forward to see pics!
Dreck, previous owner tell me the lens is horrible before he send to Jim have it fully CLA and converted. The inconsistency can't be fixed without new helicoid.
Anyway, I still love what I got and after see through viewfinder with this Rokkor, it is no way back. I should not comment/review Rokkor in Leica thread.

Here are few more from 35cron











and 80-200, I am sure it is WO but not sure about FL.

Lovely picks everyone, really enjoy yours zhangyue! Was inspired and picked up a Leitax'd Summicron R 50 f/2 for my D800. Most of my shots these days are of my kids, so I'll impose two with the Cron 50 of my son and daughter (2nd one heavily cropped). Wish I'd had this camera and lens for a solo photo trip to NYC a few months ago...

Great shots, guys! More and more amazing shots from R! ))

Ordered extension tube 8mm special for R35/1,4. By my experiments the focusing distance will be in the range 10-15mm from the front lens. Maybe arrived in few days, want to try this idea for crazy bokeh

Alex,
the worlinlens-mount has arrived, that was rather quick! Thanks a lot!
(for the others: this is a conversion mount like the Leitax, it seems to have the same quality of make, but a different price tag...)

I will post a couple of shots with the Apo Telyt 280/4 + 1,4x Apo extender and D700,
but first, here is a shot with the Telyt without converter on the D7100 (borrowed), since I try to find out whether it will be worth to get the D7100 for the Telyt as a FL extender, or/and get the 1,4x converted to Nikon so I can use it both bare and with extender on the D700 and/or D7100.

first a shot of a duck for good luck,

with D7100 and Telyt 280/4, no extender, ISO 100, 1/1000, I think f 4.5




edited to a different version I did with Photoshop rather than Capture One (with default sharpening).
I think I should have turned sharpening off in the Camera plus set it to RAW and not JPG (ooops... )

and a couple of 100% crops (some from different shots):



despite the 1/1000 the front of the duck seems to have some motion blur.







then a shot with d700, 280/4 and 1.4 extender, ISO 800 (!!) 1/320, I think f 5.6




and 100% crop.



I have no images that are of the same subject since the D7100 war borrowed during a trip and I also had to change mounts on the Telyt back to Leica to use it with the extender.

I'll need to do more samples, as soon as I have access to the D7100 again, so far I like the results with D700 and extender much better, despite ISO 800. (mood, 3D-ness, fine structures)

comments are welcome

Get it while the getting's good. This seller I can happily vouch for.
