My bad, I am sure they are. We have a dedicate word for sheep, goat, etc... in Chinese. I default it as sheep in English.

The pics could from f2 or f2.8. This is the headache of adapting lens.

What are the general opinions and merits of of Leica R Summicron 2/50 (which I don't have) vs. Contax-Zeiss Planar 1.4/50 (which I have; this is the lens that currently spends the most time on my camera)?

Any truly side-by-side comparisons? I'm having a hard time finding any.

I have had the Contax 50/1.7 & 50/1.4, and currently have the ZS 50/1.4. Although I am a Zeiss man through and through, I prefer the Leica 50/2 over all of them, and by that I am not claiming to be scientific in my testing process, I just know that I get more enjoyment shooting with it and viewing the images afterwards. That being said, I would take the ZE 50/2 MP over any of them any day.

Leica R summicron 50 is great lens, so do many other 50mm prime lens. but if you value craftsmanship, build, handling over the top, this is one of best 50mm lens at decent price with Leica name on it.

I agree and understand Helimat's POV of MP50. It is definitely most impressive f2 performance of 50mm I ever see, there is something special about its render in focus zone. I, personally no longer value that perception high contrast/micro-contrast as important as before, so I am waiting for the 55f1.4

Some more from Kauai with 35cron

Not so amazing, but an attempt: Griffon vulture with APO Telyt 280/4 + 1,4 x extender on D7100 and cropped to the max - best I could achieve

Thank you Micheal & Philippe.

xenon99: ^^^ Leica R 28 f2.8 E55 at its best!

Philippe, go for it and you won't regret it. After checking your gear profile I feel Summicron-R 35 would be a great addition to your collection as first Leica-R glass (no modifications required beside R to F bayenet swap)

One last take of my favorite angel; Summilux-R 80 @f/1.4, PP: Silver EfexPro2 with Fuji Neopan ACROS 100 & Selenium toning

I did nothing more comprehensive than a quick series of landscape shots last weekend, going through the aperture range of each of the the lenses above. Having said this, I found that I didn't quite nail focus in some of them and stupidly did not use delay-shutter and/or mirror-lockup when using small apertures, so some were blurred and haven't been included in the comparison.

100% 72dpi jpegs produced from CR2 in Capture One Pro 7. No post-processing, default settings OOC.

Once upload complete, look for my public set 'Cron-R 50 and Zeiss Planar 50/1.4 comparison on 5D Mk III'

Thanks for comments! Jack, LZ, Manu.
LZ, for Leica R and your style. Any lux will be good, but be ware of no auto aperture, which is a pain for hand hold shooter IMO.

Here are few from yesterday with 35cron&6D.

more like slightly richer man's XL rx1, i don't know where i could get that combo for less than an rx1 these days.

beautiful landscapes from kauai! i especially love the b&w ones. it looks like you didn't crop after correcting the distortion on the first of those btw.
