Very nice Edward! I have always loved the output from that ZM85. It reminds me of the CV90 ltm Apo-lanthar I used to own...

Thank you very much Gary. It's a very well balanced lens, sharp but not harsh, pleasing bokeh and no aberrations. I wish it was f/2.8 though.

Thank you very much Phil! If you can live with f/4 maximum aperture, I highly recommend the Tele-Tessar. Very high IQ from wide open, nice bokeh and no aberrations, all this in a very small package.

May I ask why your looking specifically for the 90 AA? Are u aware the 90AA has 55e filters and the others use 46e?
The 90 elmarit-m and 90 summarit use 46e filters as well.




I also have a question about long lenses:


I'm orientating myself for a longer lens after using a canon 85mm I borrowed. My longest lens till now is the 50 cron.
There are so many choices to pick from I kinda lost sight.


What I find important, I have both crons 28 and 35. I love the 28 because of its rendering and vignetting. The 35 is nice and good, but a bit dull compared to the 28 and I like the 28 way better.

The 50 cron also has its own look. A bit classic and not that great bokeh but I like it a lot.

I would like a long lens comparable to the 28 and 50 crons.

I tried both 75 and 90 summarit in the shop but as u might understand, thats inside a shop which means high iso's and not really great subjects. So I find them hard to judge.
Prices are great, as is the 46mm filter size.
Don't really like the minimal focus distance.

The 75 and 90 AA have a great appeal to me, especially the 75 because of its close focus. But both are pretty steep in price and it would mean I have to sell my 35 cron ASPH.

90 macro I tried and its a really really good lens optically. But I found it a bit boring to use. Also a bit to slow.
Also to expensive (3300 euro)

90/2 cron. Looks good for the prices (about 800 euro). Unfortunately not able to try at the shop so can't really get a grip on how it performs.

90/2.8 elmarit-m. Looks great with its smaller size and 46mm filters. Read everywere its a real great performer, but I find them to high in price at the moment (1700 euro)

ZM 85/4. Edward shows its a great performer. But I don't like it being 85mm for tight framing, also a bit slow.


U see, so many choices I'm not really sure what to pick



My question:
- Do anyone use a 75 together with a 50, and how does it work out? I'm afraid I will skip one and keep using the other instead of using both.
- Does anyone have both 75 and 90 AA. How big is the difference on minimal focus and aspect ratio? Is it a significant difference in favor of the 75 AA, or is the difference pretty small?
- How is the 90 cron pre AA?
- When thinking about the 28 cron ASPH, which of the lenses will fit it best (not in focuslenth, but in drawingstyle/ rendering)
- and last, what did u pick and why?


Lots of questions, but after reading so many tests I lost sight.

I have the 75 Lux and the 90AA. Purchased the 90AA because I've always been a 85/105mm fan on SLR's and it's a focal length I'm comfortable with. Although I love the lens and don't plan on selling it, I found the MFD of 1m a little limiting for my day to day use. Which was a great excuse to pick up a 75mm Lux. I definitely appreciate the extra stop of speed and the 0.7m MFD along with a little more character in the rendering.

As of now, I use the 75mm wide open for natural light, 90mm for studio stopped down.

In practical use I've found a large enough difference between 50mm and 75 to justify carrying both, but if I'm trying to travel light the 35mm/75mm combo is great.

Edward, excellent sets with the ZM 85/4 on p.688. First set, #3 and 4, second set #3, third set #3 and last set #1 & 4 are my favorites. Looks like a really sharp and nice lens.

Cal, #3 with the 50Lux ASPH is excellent.

Phil, nice one with the Summaron. 2.8 or 3.5?

Thanks. The 75 lux looks awesome indeed. But its out of my price range unfortunately.

What I don't really understand from your story. U say the 75 lux has 0,7m minimal focus distance, but according to my leica collectors guide the 75 lux only goes down to 1m minimal.

Comparing aspect ratio's of all the current tele's the 90 macro is best with 1:6.7 (without makro adapter), closely followed by the 75AA with 1:7. Next is to my surprise the 90 summarit with 1:8.9 followed by the 90AA with 1:9. The 75 summarit it last with 1:9.9.

All are a big improvement over my 50 cron with 1:11.5 or the 50 lux with 1:11.3.

Robert and Joe, thanks for the comments.

CVickery, no. 4 is very nice.

Phil, nice moment there.

Joe, perfect timing and composition with just the right amount of movement blur.

Ron: Love the first one from your fort set, the clouds really co-operated with that one.
Joe: Nice work with the CV50 1.1! I especially like the first one you posted
zhangyue: your photos with the little girl and the dog made me smile, along with the shot of your daughter on the swing.
Edward, looks like your having fun with the 85/4, I like the 2nd photo of the last set, great light and composition.

Some more with the MM and 21 Lux. I really enjoyed using it in Vegas, and it hasn't left the camera since.
