Great pictures in this thread as always.

I seem to be an infrequent visitor these days.

To be somewhat on topic, I have the following 45-50s in LTM or M mount:

50 Cron Type 4
50 Cron DR: yes, I know that's of very limited use on an M8, but I also now own an M6
Jupiter-8
Contax G45/2 converted.

A few from the G45 on my M8, all at ISO160

1. Manchurian Pear leaves, f6.3



2. BIF - I got lucky! f3.5



3. f5.6



4. can't recall aperture, but probably f8 or 11

Sorry to disappoint you guys, especially Zhangyue, but I just found a mint copy of the Sonnar 2/85 and ordered it I remember Ron tested it a while back and I really liked the results despite the purple fringing in overexposed high contrast areas. He also said it is much easier to nail the focus due to the special helicoid that has to be hand-assembled in Germany.

Very nice shots above, Zhangyue. Colors in the top shot are fantastic.



Congrats.....

Congrats Ryan! Interesting cars in your building's garage, considering you guys in AB have all of a few weeks of summer in which to actually drive these kinds of cars...

Congrats Edward! I know you've wanted this lens for a long time. Yes, I was surprised just how easy it was to focus wide open at all distances. Did you find it locally?

Nice sets Michael, Lenticular and Anh!

Just a few I don't think I posted, from about a month ago... Port Dover, at Lake Erie

Ron, my 90Cron AA did not need adjustments but it was a newer serial starting 4xxx. I tried an older 90Cron pre-ASPH and focus on that copy was all over the place. Also agree, 90Summarit is no slouch.

Oops, I forgot Phil, who probably has a secret stash of 50s in a vault somewhere? So how many 50s do you have now?


Joe

50 Noct 1f my favorite esp after 2 meters, sharp to infinity, this is not a garage queen in my hands, its prob my most used baby
50 Cron 6 Bit, what can you say it's a cron and a daily driver for most
Canon 50 1.4 LTM w/adapter - love this lens at 2f! totally artistic lens for me! and sharp, vomit at 1.5
5cm Summarit 1.5 talk about low contrast wide open! @4 it rocks
5cm Summicron 2 colaps Leitz very sharp wide open and love the rendering on this baby! Can you say olde skool?

Will post my 50 Nocti shots later

Phil

Mono and Noct w/.9 ND filter wide open, very bright day

Michael, nice contrasty shots with the 50 Rigid. Brick wall looks sharp
Edward, the above portrait is beautiful, another superb portrait! Skin tones look beautiful. Also congrats on the 85Sonnar. Its a lovely lens, Can't wait to see you shoot with it.
David, excellent shots with those classic lenses, love the BIF shot! Can you share more pics with the Jupiter 8?
Tri-tran, very nice set with the 50Cron.
Ryan, congrats on the M240 (and the car? )
Ron, another excellent set from your local walks. You always seem to know where to look for good light.
Luka, excellent set, #1, 2 & 6 are my favorites but special mention to #3, wow! simply superb composition with the positioning of the diagonal line of ducks!! Love it!! Also like your crisp pp as always.
Gary, what a catch! Superb shot and the 50Cron rendering is really nice! Were you in camouflage?
Phil, Excellent Nocti shots. Looks really crisp but yet soft, hard to explain the f/1.0 magic?

-----
A few from yesterday

50/1.0 on M240. RF focusing on this lens seems easier on the M240 than my Monochrom. I checked calibration with the M240's EVF and it seems spot on, with slight front focus, maybe that's why I had issues on the Monchrom.














Nikkor 5cm 1.4 @ f/1.4 on Monochrom
















Seems glowy and flares unpredictably wide open but @f/2, it starts to really shine. What a classic gem. Thanks to Ron and Gary for their earlier samples and mini reviews.

Phil, Joe, thank you for your comments. Can't wait to receive the Sonnar too

Very nice portraits, Joe. Somehow I prefer the rendering of the Nikkor to the Noctilux f/1. I think the bokeh is more pleasing.
