Would love to hear your thoughts on the late model 50/2

Had one a while ago but have now sold all my R lenses.
I have a strange hankering after a 50 summicron 'made in germany', though I already have ZE 50 planar and makro-planar.

I may just have managed to buy the E55 you posted about, it was tricky since they are rather far from me and are going through server upgrades and such, and are unreachable via the internet. Terribly nice people, I spoke to Jackie and a gentleman whose name I didn't catch. It isn't actually boxed though, which I don't mind about.

I have wanted to try this lens for a while, but hadn't gotten around to it, thinking that they were much more expensive. I think I would primarily use it for portraits though, the bubble-ish boke doesn't appeal to me so much, i.e. backlit foliage and such.

Johnahill...just got the late model (373xxxx) made in Germany R Cron 50 yesterday. Taking it, and my E55 Lux 50 to work today and will try to compare them. As I've stated, the Lux is my fav 50 so far. But I am curious to see how the Cron stacks up against it. The Cron was my very first R lens, and got me really into them. Are there any diff between the Germany made vs Canada made? The person I traded from, said he thought the coatings might be a little diff...?? I also have the CV Nokton 50 1.5 ASPH, and it's a fantastic little lens. And, eventually, I won't need 3 50's(although several arguments can be made for keeping all 3), but those arguments will be lost on my wife!!!
I'll post later tonight or through this weekend on them!

will the 50 summilux e55 work on 5D2? (does it clear the 5d2 mirror i mean)


Mine (serial # 3387xxx) works fine on my 5D2 and doesn't hit the mirror. But there are copies which don't work. As far as I know, Serials from 379xxxx on (built in 1998 and later) have problems with 5D-Mirror.

Visited a local organic farm yesterday, and spent most of the day with the Leica 50/2-R on my D610. ...photographing moving chickens with a MF lens isn't easy.

Summilux-R 35 and 80 on the A7R in the Tianshan mountain valley south of Urumqi, China. Kazakh nomads herding there for the summer. A local friend runs a wedding photo studio and I followed her team on a shoot.

Hi everyone, I've been following this thread passively for a while but have only just started posting here. I've been using with great joy my Lux R 35 and 80 and have just posted some images I took with those on my A7R about 2 weeks ago in Xinjiang, China.

Here are some of a carpet and a silk atlas (like South Asian ikat) workshop in Hotan. Again it's Lux-R 35 and 80 on A7R.

A visit to the Brecon Beacon NP to get some mileage on the 'softer' ground of blanket bog and view some relict periglacial landforms. Some interesting weather too and the vertical rainfall of the French Alps is now but a fond memory

Here are some images cross posted in the Sony A7/A7r/A7s image thread of thistle that I took last evening near the top of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, PA. All images tripod mounted Leica R 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens and my Sony A7r; images processed in LR5.6.

I know that I posted the first image in this pair earlier today and I have cross posted this in the A7/A7r/A7s image thread. I am still trying to figure out how to limit the vibration of the A7r camera with long lenses in the vicinity of 200mm and longer particularly in the Portrait orientation. As more tests are run, I will try to post some results. But, both of these images were shot with my tripod mounted Leica R 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens and my A7r. Images shot at ISO 800, I believe f4 for 1/160 second. and processed in LR5.6. The 2nd image is about a 100% crop. Look at the amazing sharpness in some of the lines in some of the thistle flower; this is what I focused on at 14.4X in Live View of the A7r.

Here are some images cross posted in the Sony A7/A7r/A7s image thread that I took last evening north of and near the intersection of Lyon Valley Road and Shale Head Road, New Tripoli, PA. Images were taken with my tripod mounted Leica R 100mm f4 Apo-Macro-Elmarit lens and my A7r camera. All images processed in LR5.6.
