What's IBIS?

Great set Kokusai, makes me want to get that lens. Why do you call it "series VII"?

In Body Image Stabilization, or IBIS.

Earliest versions could only mount the hard-to-find series VII filters (50.8mm). The later versions had an E55 thread, supporting 55mm filters. At one time, Leica converted the former to the latter.

^^^^nice shot again, LtZ...but...to my eye, with the hard vignetting you applied, the focus shifts from the Citroen, to the person in the background. Just my opinion....

Hey gang -- Thanks for the comments and the many likes.

Z - Another excellent shot of the CitroŽn Traction. The strong vignetting works for me because it takes me back to that era. Nicely executed...

My favorite focal range lens are 50 and short teles (80 to 100). Most short teles' minimum focusing range is around the 1 meter mark. I like the cron 90 because the MFD is only 0.7 m.

There are 3 versions of the 90 Summicron-R:

1) 90 f/2 Summicron-R Series VII; also known as version 1 with telescopic pull out hood
2) 90 f/2 Summicron-R E55; also known as version 2 or 90 cron pre asph with pull out hood
3) 90mm f/2 APO-Summicron-R ASPH; latest version aka 90 cron-R AA with pull out hood

Edit -- Added hood info above. Also, I've seen advertised on the net the latest serial #s of version 1 use 55mm thread. Both v1 and v2 have the same optical design. The AA version is entirely different.

Here's a good resource regarding the Leica 90 f/2 R Summicron:

A few more with the 90 Summicron-R Series VII. Thanks for looking...

What LtZ said!!! Really like the first and third shots, Kokusai...the chandelier is my fav, though!
I've been using the 90 Elmarit, and like LtZ, have been lusting after the Cron, too. One of these days...I do look forward to the time when LtZ gets one though...his posts with the 50 Cron are exemplary!! Can't imagine the images he'll produce with the 90!!
