Two more shots with the ZM 50/2:


cool shots Edward.

legit question, between the 50/2 and the 35/2 which would be your desert island lens if every subject magically worked itself out so focal length didnt make a difference?

since you are on RFF too I suppose you may have noticed I chose the planar myself.

One from today with the 35FLE @ f1.4 .. I dialed down exposure (to remove blown highlights) in added vignetting in RAW editing using Photo Ninja to enhance the lighting on the subject's face.

Gary, Ron, redisburning, thank you very much for the comments.

Ron, Great set! All shots are fantastic.

Dale, nice portraits as usual. I like the 1st one the most.

Redisburning, that is a very tricky question I personally could live without a 50 but life would be unbearable without a 35 so subjectively I would choose the 35 regardless of technical considerations. Nevertheless, from the optical point of view, I think both lenses are excellent. The 35 is sharper in the center, the 50 is sharper in the corners. The 35 has no distortion, but there is some spherical aberration wide open that causes a very slight focus shift and veiling haze, and the bokeh wide open is not always good, even though it can also be spectacular depending on the situation. The 50 produces invariably nice bokeh, and may have a tad more contrast, but I feel the 35 produces more 3D pop. So I would say the 50 may have a very slight edge optically.

^Nice portrait^ Goran.
Edward, Nice color as always.
Ryan, Nice series. the #6 is my favorite.
Dale, I like the first.
Ron, it's amazing how much there is to see in one's own 'backyard' when making the effort to get out and actually explore How true. Everyday normal life, place is a great training for eyes waiting for the true moment come Nice set as always. I like the #2 21 SEM shot the best for its unique composition.

one from 50cron rigid

f2.8

Edward, the picture of the kittens is excellent.

Here are a couple from London, including a blast from the Leica past all with 35 lux asph and M9.

Excellent shots all!

Michael, really enjoy your posts with the older lenses, 35CronV1 and the 50Cron Rigid. I think I'll have to pick up a copy of the Rigid soon.
Edward, really excellent street shots with the ZM 50/2! The first set taxi cab shot is my favorite.
Ryan, love those 21Lux shots from Vegas, especially the last shot.
Ron, excellent set! Really like the angles and lighting to the compositions. #1, 7, 9 and the last are my favorites from this set.
Dale, nice series with your son.
Gary, nice shot wit the 50Lux. Is that the E43 or E46 version?
Goran, welcome to the thread.
Ash, excellent set from London!
Daniel, really like the last shot with the dog.

Picked up a CV50 1.1 this week.

Thanks Edward. Wide open or could be f/1.4 but its slightly cropped. It doesn't have the sharp out of focus transition as the newer Leica lenses but rendering is modern.

From what I understood, it must have severe focus shift, like the C Sonnar. Did you do any tests, Joe?

Thanks for comments Ed, Joe.

Joe, That is nice portrait. I had the lens for a while. But never really like it for its size. But I remember it has very decent sharpness even at 1.1 and Bokeh is smooth. Some lens just never works out for me for no reason

Now the 50lux is gone, I start miss it.
Here are few shots from it.

f2 or f2.8

Thanks Edward, Michael.

Michael, excellent set with the 50Lux ASPH! Any news from Leica on the repairs?

Edward, I haven't tested for focus shift but I'm sure its there from f/2 to f/5.6 or thereabouts. On my copy its sharp at f/1.1 to f/1.4. Has some "old school" glow at f/1.1 especially if there is a bright light source. Focus throw is too short for me and its hard focus on moving objects wide open, probably need more practice.

Following were all shot at f/1.1 with 3 stop ND.






















Focus on this copy is spot on at infinity. At f/8 its sharp.

Zhangyue, very nice set, and such a beautiful rendering from the lux!

Joe, thanks for the info and the images. It is definitely a very interesting lens that I have considered at several occasions (and GAS bouts )

Edward go for it!

A few more at f/1.1. Stopped down to f/1.4 it sharpens up and the character of the lens becomes more modern.












At f/1.1, it can also give you the Leica "glow" similar to the Nocti 1.0 or 35Lux pre ASPH







I think the next lens on my list is probably a Canon 50 1.4 or 1.8 ltm. I can't recall if Ron or others have shot this lens and posted on this thread?

Thanks Joe. It is the E46 version and I love the rendering of this lens. Many say it has a similar output to the 50 nocti. Funny you mention the Canon 50 f/1.4... I just got one in the mail the same day my camera shipped out. Will have to wait another few weeks to try it out.... From what I see and hear, it is a really good lens for the price. I also called Leica NJ and they are shipping out the M240s to Solms in batches - I think on a weekly basis.
