Those images are amazing (as is the story). I've posted a direct link to them here for those who are interested....
Agree, Mike, you moved the stage here. You have the ability to capture the atmosphere which illustrated both here Leica thread and f1.2 thread.
Michael - great post! The one in the water is just awesome. The 35 Cron I you have, is it the goggled version? How is it on the M9? A pain, or is it just like any other lens? Minimum distance .7?
I have the 35 Summaron which from what I have been able to tell is very similar in rendering....just f/2.8 instead of f/2. It may be my favorite rendering lens I have, just would like to have f/2 for the times its needed
Thanks Ryan, appreciate.
My version is goggled one, which I like a lot since it is bring up 50mm frame line. As mentioned, Rangefinder for me is a crop tool to crop the world, without seeing out side of frame, how? The goggle will reduce the contrast of VF and has some distortion, but doesn't affect me much. It focus down to about 0.6M or so.
Again, my personal view on both 35cron 8 element and 50cron Rigid are the same, I use them not for their rendering,(Which I don't feel they are very special on Bokeh, I may fail double blind test to spot them that I never will on 50lux ASPH, or 35lux R. * 35cron do have round Bokeh highlight all the way to extreme corner suggest its excellent coma performance.) but they reliably bring me good results at all aperture. they build like a jewel, handle with charm even after all these 50 years. Leica gained my respect from there more than now
