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.

Fantastic shot, Joe! And congrats for the nokton. Was this shot wide open?

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.

Joe: I haven't yet tried the Canon 50 LTMs, though have given it some consideration. I suppose one can never have enough 50s? I guess you've already read it, but the Huffster did a write-up recently on the 50/1.8 and Ashwin Rao has commented on the Canon 50/1.4... My guess is they'll be very nice lenses on the MM. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to see Gary's results on the M!

Nice work with the 50/1.1 - sure looks better than my impressions of it, though admittedly from very limited hands-on experience.

Michael, love the portraits and they're quite distinctive as 50 Lux ASPH.
Great set Daniel!
Ash, also an interesting selection from London.
Gary, very nice moment! The 50 Lux pre-ASPH is definitely on my want list. Certainly a more affordable alternative to the Nocti in exchange for similar rendering.
Nice portrait Goran.
Also a nice moment, Dexter. It will be fun to look through these photos in a few years and see how everyone's kids have grown up.

Some more from Fort Erie:



























First with 50 Lux ASPH and the rest with 28 Cron.

And the view across the Niagara River of downtown Buffalo NY (90 Summarit):

Joe, The slow down performance is very good from the lens as I remembered and shown in your result. As for Leica service, They are like tooth paste, I need keep asking the status, and get very limited info back. I guess they are overwhelming with M.
Today, I receive a letter though, state my M9 and the lux will CLA free even though my M9 is out of warranty. and they will replace the skin for free
About the lux damage, they listed change hood will be $88, and body will need change whole mount, they didn't tell me the price, I will contact them next week to see if I will change it or not. It is all depend on price.

Ron, such a beautiful processed set. I especially like #5.

The 50/1.1 seems perfect on the MM! Great shots.

Joe, another nice set with the MM. I don't think the nokton will work as well in color. I checked many online samples and was not really convinced. The focus shift made me resell the C Sonnar after less than a month of ownership, but when I buy the M10, things might change

Ron, outstanding set, colors, composition, subject matter.

Zhangyue, that's wonderful news. Only Leica would do that.

Ed, I agree their service is always good. But is it the way luxury brand should be? Just like Lexus, Audi service is way different than Toyota here

Before sleep, I will upload another batch of 50lux photo. I start miss it more no matter what, 50lux is very consistent performer under all condition, all aperture, well, if you can make it focus well. (now, I believe it is the FLE cause its drift over the time. it is a complicated movement both way when focusing, so mechanic requirement must be high)

f5.6

WOW! Zhangyue, that set above is amazing!

Just wondering what raw converter are you using and what settings?
