A photo show the problem I am talking about back lighting. No light source in the frame, and I see this often enough to know it is a concern. 1.4G doesn't have this problem. I don't remember ZF is this bad as well. Use hand to cover or slightly change shooting angle will 'help', but one hand shooting 80lux is not easy. With better hood design, it will be better. 'Help' means problem is there just not as obvious to see, but for high quality Landscape shot, I will concern this for sure.

However, The lens paint once use it for what is for

A couple shots from first week I got it early this year. I do have lots of family pics I love from this lens, but not want overload this thread

^^^ damn, your kids are growing fast, Michael.
I like the first shot - very cute, and you saved some $$$ on VSCO software right there
BTW, isn't the spoon supposed to be on his nose?

I can imagine it could harm some serious shot, but this one looks pretty good as it is. Im not entirely sure, but it might be possible to PP it? Never had this issue so I dont know..

Michael thx for posting these lovely shots. Honestly, the first shot doesn't look bad at all. Absolutely love the second shot. Dreamy bokeh with great colors.

Jack on the VSCO comment.

Second shot Zhanguye is really special. I rather like the flare in the first though.

Thank you Manu, appreciate it.
I am sure you track your Lux-R 80; it will not disappoint you, that's for sure.







EDIT: Wrong lens stated! The image was taken with Leica Summilux-R 80 E67 at f/8
Manu, my comment should make sense now

this isn't going to be good for my wallet, but I really like what I see with the 35/2 mandler design. Absolutely beautiful colors, skin tones etc. The corners seem to be problematic though. How bad are the corners ?

Thank you Mescalamba and Michael.

I truly envy photographers who used specific lenses for years, if not decades and know in & outs of each of them. I acquired few lenses in a fairly short period of time and slowly manage to learn what they can do.
As much as I would like to have multiple copies of each and different focal length, I feel I should downsize my gear and concentrate more on taking pictures rather than rushing towards getting more glass.
Said that, I am leaning towards boxing my Zeiss lenses (heck, tried to sell one of them in 100% condition just to realize that I will lose at least 30%. Naah, will rather keep them boxed and I am sure few years from now current ZF.2 will be on a wanted list along Contax line)
Anyhow, Leica R lineup has many great lenses that are out of production and almost out of reach – get them if you can and keep in mind that current Zeiss, Touit, Owls or whatever can be purchased $1000/kg at any time.

Just to make a sense of this; Summicron-R 35 can be used around its flows and still produce very unique images. It got a slow start with me, but I started to really like it!

Smooth; just don't put your main subject in far corners. Alex (Worldinlens) among others posted great photo showing in/out sharpness zones of Cron-35; use it to compose your shots.

Is it THAT bad?
See in this test shot at f/5.6

Manu, I was wondering how come you didn't get Mandler's 35/2 Cron yet?

Jack, I have the zeiss 35/2 which i like but I have way too much stuff and overlapping focal lengths. Really need to thin the herd. I like the cron 35/2 quite a bit based on pics from you and others I've seen. They talk about soft corners on ff and field curvature. But this lens seems to have soul. It seems to be a fantastic photojournalistic type of lens. I'll have to sell the zeiss 35 if I get this. I've also heard good things about the elamrit-r 35/2.8. Decisions !

I'm really convincing myself to return the 80/1.4 that I ordered and you post great portrait after portrait with the 80
