I love my 21SA too! It's special on b/w film, I love its freedom from distortion and it's a great size as an object. It's ropey and terrible too!! but can work on b/w film really nicely, I share your feelings on ISO400 -> f/8. The hood made a massive difference with mine.I keep it and an old type 35mm Summilux on my M2.


Yeah I leave the hood on always, I was fortunate and got a complete one for a pretty fair deal. I had to get another viewfinder though as I got a couple fungus spots from shooting in a super humid conservatory. It still works but I want to figure out how to clean it or have someone do it.

I've long been tempted by the pre-Asph Summilux 35 but I was always put off by the 1m MFD, I tend to get close with wide lenses. Still want to try one though.

Generally, I find that ISO 3200 on the M10 is similar to ISO 640 on the M9, which I liked for its somewhat film grain-like noise — but M10 images shot at this speed in difficult, mixed light are much easier to process for color cast and in lifting shadows, for which there seems to be less need than with the M9.

René: that's a sublime B&W image!

Gary - very funny capture.

Mitch - pleeese - no more extolling the virtues of the M10...just when I am trying to sell my M9 and buy an M240!

Confession time: I have many many more Pentax K-1 images than M9 images from my recent trip, however I'm much more inclined to post on this thread

Another few from Buenos Aires, all Voigt Nokton 50 f/1.2 LTM unless stated otherwise.

I knew it was just a matter of time. Wound up buying another M240, so I've gone full circle!

I don't expect the SA21 will work very well for color but I liked the Black and White conversions I was able to get with the M240 so I'll just stick to that for the time being.

I would like to have one f/1.4 lens available though and as big as it is, I'm looking at the Zeiss 35 Distagon. I've seen some impressive work done with it and I feel like in low light I'd prefer a 35 vs a 50. My primary lenses typically are 28/50 though right now it's 21/50. So I'd really only use it as a single lens on the 240 and occasionally on film when the light is low.

Congratulations on your M240 Abram!

Re 35mm lenses, about a year ago I picked up a VM 35 f/1.2 Nokton (Mk I) at a good price. I really like the way it performs.

Re 35mm lenses, about a year ago I picked up a VM 35 f/1.2 Nokton (Mk I) at a good price. I really like the way it performs.


Thanks! The lesson for me is that I should have just kept what I had instead of selling my M240 last year. I've just been spiraling out of control with digital equipment becoming increasingly dissatisfied with what's available, or unable to afford what (in my mind) would suit me well. As such I've shot A LOT more film in the past year and really re-awakened my photographic eye and as I've also been less and less reliant upon having an in-camera meter I think now I will be able to do a better job of understanding the strengths of the M240 as a platform and be able to better utilize it. Though to be fair, in the couple years I had mine I produced some of my best work.

Anyways! I had the CV 35mm f/1.2 VII before in the past and I agree it was a very interesting lens. I never had the chance to try the first version out but I found that (at least on the 240) the Nokton was really wonderful up close and "decent" to "okay" at mid-range to infinity. I'm not opposed to trying another one as realistically the 35mm Summilux options are just not on the table right now. I respect Leica glass, I enjoy working with it, but for me, I'm completely open to alternative options as well. I've also been on an older lens kick for a bit but I thought to have one very modern, very high-performance lens for tough low light shooting would make sense.

I am admittedly put off by the bulk of the CV 35 and ZM 35, ironically they're really not THAT big in comparison to today's giant AF lenses, but I find that on the fairly compact M bodies they just seem to be quite large.

To those of you that have been working with them successfully are you able to put aside the size / weight and just enjoy it for what it is?

Congrats on the M240 Abram. You might also want to consider the new Voigtlander VM 35/1.7...it's not quite as fast, but Ron seems to like his. The M240 does reasonably well in low light up to ISO 3200 and as such the f1.4, while nice, isn't as necessary.

Not every Leica is a camera ... this is a pic of the operating microscope I use at one of the hospitals. Shot with the Q.

I have had the 50mm Nokton a couple times now and while I really, really like what it produces optically, I just find that for me the ergonomics of the lens don't quite work (which is unfortunate because I've grown to like the retro styling).

I'll keep it in mind however, I really love the size / ergonomics of the 35 Summilux Pre-Asph, but I feel like the 1m MFD would be a slight hindrance as is its less than stellar wide open performance (it really livens up as you stop down though!) But it sure is a perfect size / weight.
