My first R lens: 50/2 with a Nikon bayonet. The lens rarely leaves my D610.

Gregg, I loved this lens on Fuji s5

I guess by Minolta too but just found another info on one forum:

The Leica 35-70 F4 ROM lens was supposedly designed by Leica and certainly built by Soligor. AFAIK, Soligor is not related to Kyocera

That is not correct. Both the last 35-70mm f4 Vario Elmar and the 80mm-200mm f4 Vario Elmar lenses were both designed by Leica and were both made by Kyocera. The Leica 28mm-70mm Vario Elmar lens was made by Sigma.

Regrettably, after just a little over a month of ownership, I sold the Leica APO 100mm today to help fund a lens purchase I've been wanting to make. I truly wish I could have kept it too but the wallet wouldn't cooperate. The good news is it sold to a great FM member whom I know will put it better use than I did. In fact, he may already be participating here with other Leica glass?

Also, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your talent, advice and the incredibly inspiring images I get to enjoy every day. Although I will be unable to post images I'll definitely continue to check this thread daily and admire from afar.

With that said, here's a few that I did have the opportunity to shoot the past month. One thing is certain, I'll have another Leica 100 back in the bag one day. It's a outstanding lens with amazing IQ! If you're on the fence wondering if you should get one. Do it!

Keep in mind, these are hosted on Flickr and their algorithm does crazy things sometimes. Also, ignore the EXIF data as it's incorrect (user error). Finally, I don't think I have posted these before but if so, I'll delete this post. Enough already... here's some photos.

Greggf, great shots with the 35-70. That beer bottle shot is incredible. Sharpness of focal plane looks like most lenses do at f/8, but the background bokeh is as nice as any f/2.8 zoom. Wonderful combo.

Wow!! I guess this is just going to become "My" thread til someone else posts!! More R 4/35-70 Macro. This lens is taking a little to grow on me...whereas the Contax 35-70 is dead sharp and with lots of POP, this lens is much, much more subtle, and not quite as sharp as I'd like at long distance...at least what I'm getting out of my 1D4. I think I'm just used to the A7 sensor...it's so wonderful!
Gregg




















Did a similar shot with the RCron R 90 with close up adapter stopped down...this one wide open at f4

Here are 5 images cross posted in the Sony A7/A7r/A7s Image Thread;

These are images that I took yesterday and last evening. The first is of a hawk on the fence behind my house (Breinigsville, PA) taken about 150 feet away outside my sliding glass kitchen window. Image taken with my tripod mounted Leica R 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens with my Leica R 2X Apo Extender and my Sony A7r camera. Image taken wide open with extender for effective aperture of f8,

The second image is a close up of the hawk cropped from the above image.

The remaining 3 images are of Queen Anne's Lace wildflowers taken at the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, PA late yesterday afternoon/evening with my tripod mounted Leica R 100mm f2.8 Apo-Macro-Elmarit lens and my Sony A7r camera.

All images processed in LR5.5.

Cross post from Mandler thread.

80lux WO

I still use R with DSLR a lot, my favorite combo for my family pictures. I feel the 80/75lux's magic happen at close distance, after 3M they are noticeable sharper, but it is also more similar to regular 80-90ish range fast glass.

Very nice photos, some of these look rather positively "film like". VSCO or something else?

Michael...beautiful Lux shots of your daughter!!
Tri Tran...very nice 35 Cron shots...I miss using one when it was loaned to me!
A few more R Vario Elmar 35-70/4 macro shots. This lens is really growing on me...can't wait to get my A7 back, so I can really compare it to the Contax and Minolta 35-70's I have!!

And a few street shots where I deliver. Nice street with tons of rich people that work in Silicon Valley. Very nice houses, with mainly ocean views throughout, and one celebrity, too!! If any of you follow(or used to) SI swimsuit or your significant others bought clothes from Victoria Secret...Marissa Miller lives on this street with her family!
