Upload & Sell: On
I find myself in a quandary, and its name is "50mm."
This might not be the right place, but, so far, you folks are the closest I've found to "my people" in a photographic sense. So. Thanks for bearing with me. :-)
The tl;dr is that I'd appreciate anyone's and everyone's thoughts and recommendations for a 50mm M-mount lens. Please send me a PM if you don't want to post for everyone to read, even if that's just a link to your social media page because you've got lots of 50mm images there. Or post anything you think is appropriate, even if...Show more →
I'm ploughing through a number of the M9... image thread pages, having recently returned home from a long trip (images to be posted in due course).
Noticing your query on 50mm lenses, I have many images that I made a few years back, all still-life test shots at home. I'm in the process of uploading these to a Google Drive folder as I type this, link below
The lenses are:
Summilux-M 50 v1 (with some fungus / haze!)
Contax G45 f/2 (converted to LM)
Jupiter-8 (50 f/2)
Canon LTM 50 f/1.4 (the Japanese Summilux)
Industar-61 LTM (53mm f/2.8, New Old Stock)
Album of lens test shots
I also have the same test shots done on my then Sony A7R (no Kolari mod, however I am not uploading those at this time).
Two lenses that I rate highly that I did not own then, but do now, are the Summarit 50 f/2.4 and Voigtlander Nokton 50 f/1.2 LTM (Version 1). I also really regret selling a V4 Summicron-M 50 that was my first genuine Leica lens.
I realise that most if not all of these lenses may fall outside your interest sphere, however I thought I would upload for possible interest. I had them uploaded as a Flickr album some time ago but they aren't there any longer.
PS - I also generally have Flickr albums that clearly state the source camera and lens for most images.
