Here are a few more shots from my newly acquired 50 Lux...starting to get the feel for the lens. It is much harder to focus, IMO, than the 50 Cron. It is very sharp wide open, and incredibly so at 2.8!! Whereas the Cron focusing feels, at least to me(granted I've only used it briefly, and will have to return it the owner next week), very easy, and is more apt to hit the sweet spot, the Lux requires a little perseverance...but when you hit...WOW!!! But the Bokeh...sweet, beautiful, Bokeh...
All shots below wide open..
Thanks for looking,
Gregg

Got an 80 Lux this week. So far, I think it's a keeper. Much more compact than my ZF 100/2, and easier to focus IMO. More character too.

Not any great pictures so far, but here are some from today on the A7. First three WO, fourth at f/4 or maybe f/2.8 -- it's pretty sharp by f/2.8 at infinity.











And a bonus 35/2 shot - I have to give credit to LR for the PP on this, I hit "auto" and wow, it hit the nail on the head.

Congrats on the 80 Lux, Taylor! Wow! Serious envy...but I can't complain considering I just got my 50 Lux!!

Depends on how much caffeine one has had, among other factors I haven't used a stabilized lens recently but I do think it could help at medium tele and longer FLs.

IMHO, stabilisation is just a gadget. For a 180 mm telephoto you just need a steady hand and a minimum speed of 1/250 s.

worked great for me with my 350mm all the way down to 1/125 handheld using an olympus and kept giving me a high percentage of keepers all the way down to 1/20. i'm pretty sure i can't get anything critically sharp using a 700mm equivalent lens at 1/20 without image stabilization.

Very nice yet again Philippe, it seems you are able to previsualize the scene and then just wait for the right moment for it to materialize.

Then maybe I need to cut out tea and coffee 1/20th is quite amazing at that FL to get a high percentage. With my 400 5.6 manual Nikon I get good success, but I depend on keeping the shutter usually 1/400 or higher.

Very nice, particularly the red berry surrounded by creamy bokeh. Congrats on the sweet acquisition!

yeah, with the same lens without image stabilization on i pretty much have to shoot 1/500 or faster.

I have just found this link which is an interesting commentary on R lenses if you havent seen it

Finally had time to read it; it's an interesting article. Thank you.
I am still wondering where the M and R price differences come from (more work to squeeze glass into smaller enclosure or demand/marketing?) Nevertheless, the write-up is a good guideline to get few R jewels from the past (I have a link to more detailed coverage of selected R glass - will try to find it after dinner)


Few wide open shots from Summilux-R 80 to welcome Vancouver's sky brightening weather.

Wow Jako, that first one 80 lux image of the blue walkway grille brightened by sunlight is delightful!

Here's a couple with the Summicron 90 f2.

@Jako...superb shots with the 80! What beautiful rendering! Love the first shot the most..I'm a sucker for wide open/tons of buttery bokeh!!
@saph...really like the leaves...I just got the 50 Lux, and I think the 90 Cron will be my next...but I have been using the 90 Elmarit, and really enjoy the colors from it...we'll see.

Thank you saph, Gregg & Manu.
Summilux-R 80 suppose to shine mid/far distances. Once excitement of shotting WO fades I will put it to land/cityscape use.


Summicron-R 50; great lens but it's hard (for me at least) to capture non-flat images with it.

@f/5.6






@f/2.8

+1, incredible clarity. A7R or D800E?
I am curious to hear your opinion between the two, Jack.
