Thanks for everybody helping via forum/emails to find "pair" for Elmarit-R 90mm; I decided to go with Summicron-R 35mm and hoping it's rendering style matches well to 90mm.


Leica Elmarit-R 90mm f/2, f/2.8, 1/30s, Sony A7 @ ISO 100, Leitz E55 P-cir 13357



(reflected sunlight to tree with 120cm/50inch reflector's white side, and because needed both hands for reflector used flarebuster on A7 hotshoe - alternative versions using silver side of reflector and no reflector at all)

Hi "R" gang. Thanks for keeping this thread alive and sharing some excellent work.

I didn't get to go out and shoot much lately but managed to spend the last weekend in Santa Barbara. Here are a few taken with the 90 Cron R Series VII...

one thing i do like about mandler era lenses is how forgiving they are of missed focus. if you miss with a modern highly corrected lens it looks bad.






350mm of course

Samuli, I prefer the sans reflector/flash image, but interesting to view the differing lighting effects, as there's some old Yew trees that I've failed miserably to do justice to. So, a reflector and head torch might be a viable option in twilight/night.

This is super helpful to me. I'm thinking about purchasing some Leica lenses to use on a Blackmagic Cinema Camera, since the flange distance is short enough to accommodate them. If anyone has experience with this, I'd love to hear your feedback.

I agree both of you. The lens are very suitable for manual focus and Video capture. This is pretty much what I did with my R lens. (the way capture is like video capture, keep the frame first and focus continuously and capture)

With more and more frames took, I confirm they (along with D700) are forgiving with focus error. The lens rendering is very different compare modern glass, even though there aren't significant SA or CA exist.

With MF, I have hard time to nail focus at longer distance with stop down aperture or even WO, especially at not great light. But with good light, and closer focus range. I can nail focus as long as subject is not moving fast, like the above first swing pic.(though I doubt AF can do better with focus and frame in this case.)

Had good luck today: noticed Elmarit-R 28mm f/2.8 and shop claimed "latest ROM version" in web pages. First I was slightly suspicious as this shop is known to be really expensive, it could have been v1 with normal 50% they add to market value... Anyways went and checked and they didn't know difference between v1 and v2. Gave the money and ran out of the shop. All v2 what I have seen in eBay have been at least 2x price, and this one is from 1995 production run (S/N 370....) and in absolute flawless, not even any wear on lens barrel.


First 3 photos in ultracrappy light: Leica Elmarit-R 28mm f/2.8 v2 @ f/2.8, 1/60s, Sony A7r @ auto-ISO (400, 200 and 320)







Hopefully will be able to shoot this one in good light at weekend.
