Welcome to Leica Welt



It was precisely the most epic photo of a tiny dog I'd seen that day

Upon review, there must have been 20 or so accidental exposures... so that may have played a part in it working too hard. Who knows! No big deal in this case anyway

Xenon99 - nice pic with the 50noct although this thread is for Leica bodies.... Shooting that lens wide open, you don't have to worry about corner performance on the A7!

Richard - welcome to the club! Consider it part of the Leica "experience".

Talking about lockups, my M9 used to require removing the battery, though it only happened 3-4 times in a year, it was always when I was shooting something important. I realized that every time, I was shooting an outdoors event, so basically heat combined with shooting a lot in succession.

With the M(240), I had several lockups too, but these were basically because I was trying to shoot while the camera was sleeping, and it was sufficient to turn off and on the camera to cure them. Since the new FW, I've not had any lockups, but probably because I learned to wait a couple of seconds for the camera to wake up.

Anyone with the 4/135 Tele-Elmar? I bought one yesterday (in black) to use with my newly acquired Sony A7s. I should have it by the end of the week or beginning of next week.

What's your opinion on the lens? It isn't really fast but I am still hoping that I could get some nice background blur for some pleasings street portraits.


I recently bought one as well. I'm sure I used it on my A7, but without exif I'm not sure I can identify which shots use it. I'll attach a couple of test shots with my M240 (probably wide open). It's a nice sharp lens with a bit of purple fringing. The test shots are nothing special but give an indication of bokeh (front and rear).

Very nice Michael

My M9 used to lock up often last winter. Since I changed brand and spec of memory card, it did not need to have it's battery pulled for several months, then yesterday I did need to do it.

Edward, TY so much for kind words. Loving your M240 street work, as I'm sure you know

SEM 21 basically right out of camera:

L1021907 by unoh7, f/8

Above: I find if I'm I'm shooting "with" late light (or early), the M9 can be absolutely brilliant and very faithful to natural colors. If exposure is correct very little or no PP required

Of course that's the exception


L1021980 by unoh7, 50 cron f/9.5


L1021898 by unoh7, SEM 21 f/5.6

Shots without humans or human made object arouse less interest in viewers, studies show, so I try to shoot the earth as if it were a "body", with all sorts of creatures living amongst the curves and folds


L1022024 by unoh7, Summarit 90 f/3.4


L1021984 by unoh7, 50 cron f/4


L1022067 by unoh7, 90 summarit f/16


L1022073 by unoh7, 90 summarit f/8

I have a new to me ZI18 finder which should arrive today, which I am excited to try. The frankenfinder, for me, has a fatal flaw: the frame lines are curvy, so you cannot level the horizon without trying to look at the spirit level, which us not all that fun. I already have the ZI21 finder, which is incredible. I will sell frankenfinder.

Great photos that you guys are sharing here!

I haven't received the first Leica I ever bought yet and I am already thinking about buying another one tomorrow.

The Summicron-C 40 mm f/2 is the one I am looking at.

I have read that the bokeh can be pretty horrible but I am more interested in shooting this lens stopped down and get contrasty and sharp images.

What's the usual price this small lens goes for? I have no idea and don't want to over pay.

Thanks!

Typhoon Phanfone, (well the eye) made landfall less than 4km from my house yesterday. So after the typhoon began to ease, I did what any (in)sane person would do and headed for the beach. The waves were still over 4 meters still a little off shore and I was standing in waste deep water taking this picture. The winds were blowing over 80kph. What you are actually looking is the actual back end of the typhoon. Took two quick shots and headed back for the car.

Three versions, 2 m-rokkor, early and late, and one german made version, which accounted for at least 75% total production. Build quality is good both from german and japan. Perhaps most modern coatings are on M-Rokkor Late, you have to look up how to tell the diff.

40/2 Summicron often goes for 550
40/2 M-Rokkor sometimes seen as low as 325.

Very good lens but not in the league of the 50 cron v4

Bokeh can be pronouced, but seldom horrible.

Here it is on M9:

L1000554 by unoh7, WO


L1001323 by unoh7, WO


L1001336 by unoh7, f/9.5

That is early version M-Rokkor 40/2

Optical formula identical on all three versions.

Handling is great, as the lens weighs something like 120g

The 40cron hits it's stride around f/4:

L1001296 by unoh7, on Flick

Bokeh action WO:

L1020143 by unoh7,
it sort of goes right to the edge of distraction, but often enhances the shot in a unique way

Thanks for the info and photos! I might buy it later today and I'm also keeping my eye on a Tele-Elmarit-M 2.8/90 which I guess is pretty good, right? A good price for that one would be?

I am using the Summicron-C 40 and love it on the M8. Have not noticed any bokeh issues and in fact I think the OOF areas in general look quite good! All my pictures posted here on the last pages were taken with the 40.

I would say 400-500 USD is a fair price for a 40/2 in decent shape. Beware that it uses a bit of an odd filter thread, so if you need to use filters with it I'd recommend a "5.5 - 39mm" adapter from e.g. Heavystar on ebay. I bought one of those with a metal hood and it was quite cheap but works great and allows me to use a 39mm UV/IR filter on the lens.

Thank you very much. In all honestly, I should not of been out there and the conditions were very dangerous. 15 seconds before I took this picture there was no water where I was standing. It rushed in and was up past my waist before I realized it. As soon as I took this picture I headed for higher ground very quickly.

Cheers!

Ryan

Well some good and some bad news. The bad news being that we won't be able to take the couple of trips in the final third of this year which we'd planned for... and partly why I bought the Leica . But the good news being that a couple of weeks ago Helena started her new job at SONY Pictures - immensely proud of her! Because of the new job, we won't be able to take time off until January. But we will still have a good amount of time regardless, so not the end of the world. In fact, it's huge progress really, I'm still just slightly disappointed we won't be able to escape to explore a new land together . But I will get over that.

Here she is before one of her interviews, crumpled over in a nervous wreck

CV35/1.4







p.s. @Edward: I will experiment with the on/off vs sleep mode - thanks for the tip. I kind of like using sleep as it's always active that way, and the battery is wonderful! I think I firstly need to cut out all the accidental exposures. If I can do that I think I'll be fine re: 'freezing', but happy to trial it.

I have a copy of V2 (thin). It is a very nice lens sharp by f/4, and most importantly very compact with only 4 elements. About the same size as 50Cron It is susceptible to to two problems (i) if flares quite easily, even on a clean copy with hood on and, (ii) Optics are sensitive to white fungus growth (could be due to oil or glue used in manufacturing) and it is (almost) impossible to remove. So if you buy, always have to ask seller about the fungus problem and if there is a return policy.
