Thanks Michael - I agree with you about the challenge with green. Some of these have had the green/yellow desaturated in the 20-30% range, particularly the 50mm shot of the ferns. It seems to depend a lot on the light quality/color.

Thanks for comments and likes. It's certainly great to have my M9 back again!

Gary, nice set with the street performer
Michael, I like the second portrait of your daughter
Ron, the 135 tele-elmar looks like an interesting lens. The 21 SEM definitely plays in a different resolution league than the Canon but still a nice set, specially #3 and #4.
Joe, great b&w portrait of your son and the flare shot is cool.

Thanks Edward, Phil, Ron, Michael, Joakim!

Ron, excellent set with the Canon 1.4 and the SEM21. The Canon 50 1.4 seems to render so smoothly, really like it.
Michael, nice set with the 50Rigid. The leaves shot is excellent!
Joakim, you have made Edward's day, another ZM50P convert #1 and 3 are excellent!
Scott, congrats on the ZM25, I think its one of Edward's favorite lens
Phil, nice dreamy shot with the f1.0. The Canon 50 1.2 seems interesting, very unique soft low contrast rendering. I like the first shot best.
Allen, superb hand gesture, you have a great eye for these motifs, love it! The Chinatown set is also excellent.

-----
The Leica 135 M lenses seems to be underdogs. I find them to be really sharp even on the older Leitz version I have. EVF on M240 certainly helps with focusing

On another note, I brought some lenses to Youxin for cleaning and fixing. Had my Nikkor 50 1.4 ltm checked to remove oil from blades. Also had to ask him to repair a recently acquired lens where one of the elements was wrongly installed Always a pleasure chatting Youxin in person, he is very knowledgeable when it comes to vintage Leica gear.

Unfortunately for me, each visit always end with me taking out my checkbook for more than the cost of a CLA, this time it was a Canon 35 1.8 ltm

Youxin checking out my Nikkor 50 1.4






GAS attack! 8 element Cron (not mine) laid naked while my other lenses look on






Back home






As with older classic lenses, there is quite a bit of field curvature and fall off away from the center of image, but I was surprised by the center sharpness, quite impressive considering this lens was from the late 1950s.

Thanks zhangyue and Joe

Def. soft contrast lens at all apertures, had to really bring up the blacks and contrast in post, the last shot was just a comparison shot for you all to see what it looks like wide open

Youxin looks like he really knows his craft! No more GAS for me, I'm on a GAS FAST for now

Love that tricycle shot awesome colors!

Phil

Damn Joe, if you can't find the Nikkor 35/1.8.... you've stumbled upon the Canon! It looks great! Love the glow on the chrome. The 135 also looks great! Fascinating insight into Youxin's workshop, thanks for posting those.

Wow Allen! Love the first three. The guy in the first shot is interesting. I think the second is my fav. The one on the previous page is also arresting.

Phil, the Canon 50/1.2 has a nice quality to it - looks like it flares easily.

Very nice Scott - Zeissy!

Same with you Joakim - the Planar has a nice transparent quality to it. Feels like I'm there with you.

All you Nocti guys should contribute to the f/1.2 and faster thread: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1104043

Allen - I really like that shot of the hand out the window! Super creepy to me...

Ron - very nice work and the colors are all spot on. I agree about the greens which have be troublesome at times to get just right.

Joe - I've now officially lost track of your lens collection. That bike shot with the 35/1.8 has really nice rendering. Does Youxin work on all ltm and m mount lenses? Focus callibration as well?

Phil - very nice shots.

Thanks Phil, Ron, Gary

Ron, another excellent set. Great lighting, like them all. Early flight out?

Gary, don't worry, I've also lost track on my collection , but its a testing phase and I will let a few go. Definitely keeping all of the Leica lenses and all of the ltm lenses. Apparently the "trend" now is to have 4 sets of lenses for Leica M - (i) modern ASPH/Zeiss (ii) classic Mandler era (iii) Canon ltm (iv) Nikkor ltm and for collectors (v) Konica and others? Its nice that I can post Canon and Nikkor shots on this thread and don't have to fear being chastised by either Canon or Nikon fanboys

Youxin works on most ltm and M lenses, Canon, Nikkor and a few others. I think he tends to stay away with lenses with floating elements, as even Leica has issues with those lenses . He doesn't have a collimator and cannot perform focus calibration, for that you would have to go to DAG. I asked him why and he said it was difficult to obtain a collimator at a reasonable price or one that works well enough. I think with his existing workload as it is, he works 7 days a week, and even without doing focus calibration, he already has his hands full with repairs on cameras and lenses.

Thanks Phil, very nice feel to that one!
Interesting character, Gary.

Wow Joe, I guess I underestimated with my theory that a new and old kit would be sufficient? But then I also don't have an M, so maybe it doesn't apply? At the airport dropping off for a late evening flight..

Some more:



























28 Cron (1, 2 and 5, which was cropped a fair amount), 50 Lux ASPH (3, 4)
