Zhangyue, very nice classic rendering in the portrait.

Joe, beautiful colors and rendering. In fact I'm a bit surprised by the Summarit since it has mostly received negative reviews. That looks very good to my eyes.

Thanks Edward. The Summarits are nice except that many people can't get over the f/2.5 aperture and want something faster or more expensive? My 90 Summarit has since found a new home and the new owner continues to regularly post pics taken with that lens on this thread

On another note, I wonder what other photographers will think of me if I show up at a sports event with this combo It does look silly but the best thing about it is it is so light and IQ seems decent for a 1960s lens. This copy looks to be in good condition and you can pick them up for less than $200.

Thanks Edward

Zhangyue love the family shot, nice colors how do yu like that 35cron V1?

Joe very nice, nice to see some color again from you

Allen love 1 & 2 from your ongoing street series! The comp is unique and outside the box, I like that! Do you use a ND filter when you go out on bright days?

Phil

Thanks Phil. No ND filter. Usually crank up the ISO and shoot at 1/500 or 1/1000 for freezing the action and f/8 or f/11 for DoF. I usually hyper/zone focus using the DoF scales on the lens. No autofocus in the world faster than being pre focused.

Great set Allen (and the previous pages too)! I'm really drawn to the simplicity of #2.
Yes, this thread has been moving along - very nice work over the last few pages Edward, Joe, Michael, Phil, Doug.
Wow, Ash, you certainly get to some interesting places. Any special challenges/precautions for that location?

Here are a few from a few weeks ago... trying to make a go of an early season bbq and relaxing at the beach along the north shore of Lake Erie. It was a bit cool and windy, so set up in the brush by the beach, but eventually noticed quite a number of ticks crawling around that motivated us to migrate back to the beach.

































First with 21 SEM, the rest with 50 Lux ASPH. The third image is a fairly strong crop. In this case, I kinda like the odd shapes created by the aperture, which was between 2.8-4 (I believe the 75/2 also exhibits similar).
I was hoping to get some starburst effects off the specular reflections in the looser water shots (at f/11 IIRC), but either it was a bit too cloudy or it just doesn't happen as easily with the 50 Lux ASPH as I remember it happening with the ZM50/2...

Regarding the 90 Summarit: it's definitely a very good lens. I have no hesitation using it for anything. I'm sure it's outclassed by the 90AA, but IMO the Summarit is a good compromise for the size, aperture and price point. I think the 75/2.5 is optically slightly better (it seems a touch sharper) and my brief time trying the 50/2.5 was very positive. Next I'll have to see if I can compare the 35/2.5 against the ZM35/2.8.

Joe, the135/4 is also a lens I've thought about getting... very nice results with it!

Joe, thanks for the explanation. If I remember correctly, the Summarit 90 was mostly criticized for bokeh and CA. What is that monster of a lens btw?

Allen, very nice set but no. 4 clearly stands out from the rest.

Edit: missed Ron's post above. Great set, and I do love 3, 4 and 5. Very beautiful. Especially that shallow DOF in 3 is superb.

Just back from a trip to England and Iceland. Going through all the photos now. Here are a few I managed to process so far. All taken with M9+ZMC35.

Thanks Ron. Looks like a nice day out at the Lake except for the bugs? Excellent set and nice geometrical compositions with the waves. Like the starburst effects on #3, almost like a macro shot. I'll post some color shots with the 135 Elmar when my M240 returns. Monochrom is probably not the best camera to test lenses as every lens normally turns out better than expected

Allen, another excellent set!

1960s Leitz 135 Elmar f/4 M mount. According to MTF charts, its a sharp lens even by today's standards, although micro contrast lags the newer APO or ASPH lenses. The focus ring turns almost 360 degrees, so not recommended for moving subjects

-----
On the subject of 90mm lenses, can't go wrong with the 90 APO. Here is one from my Dubai archives. I posted a B&W version last year but I think the color version works better.

Thanks guys!

Allen, love the last one above, and the set is great too!
Joe - the light has a great quality.
Edward - CA is about the only fault of the 90 Summarit, but does clean up easily.
Goran, looks great and looking forward to seeing more!

Goran, I like #2 and feel #1 is good candidate for BW.
Ron, Nice sets. I remember that 50lux Bokeh highlight at f2.8. I even remember I said it doesn't bother me the first time you mention that to me. now I agree I prefer round one general speaking. But in this case they looks beautiful.
Ron I seems remember You mentioned 28cron is not as good as other modern Leica (in sharpness?) you have, can you specify a little, as i plan to get one myself.
Allen, I especially like #2&3.
Joe, Nice showcase of what 90AA can do

Thanks Allen, Ron, Michael.

Allen, nice abstract shot.
Ron, excellent tree shots. So much details in them!
Michael, very nice shots with the 50Rigid and 35CronV1. Looking forward to more Shanghai pics!

As for 28Cron being unsharp? I love mine and its sharp enough for me.

-------
Actually, with the Monochrom, I'm trying out lenses which are not so sharp and contrasty, for instance the much maligned CV 35 1.4 single coated version. Initial shots wide open.

















I was surprised when I initially opened the package. I though Cameraquest had mistakenly packed a Skopar 35 2.5 in the box because this lens is almost as compact as the Skopar.

Thanks zhangyue. I actually did that one in BW as well! I can't decide which version I like better though.
