I just stumbled accross a free download of Erwin Puts' Lens Compendium (2005 Version). I'm sure some of you have already seen it but just in case.... It has some great information including detailed descriptions of all the lenses. If you are using or considering buying "older" Leica lenses, it may come in handy.

Just want to show the wide open performance, since this lens isn't that popular.







100% crop., mild sharpening is applied

No, this is the Eibsee located in front of the northern Zugspitze.

Isn't the Zugspitze one of the higher mountains in all of Germany? Beautiful looking place.

With 2962 meters the highest in Germany. But this day wasn't a wide angle day, perhaps next time.

My first shots with M9, which arrived today. All with 28 cron

These are my "test" shots to see if everything works, considering overcast, seems fine no?

Joe, wonderful shots of your son! Love the rendering with the 70 Summarit and of course the S2!
Chuckles, excellent action shots!
Brian, very nice roll off with the Carl Jena 5cm.
Rocky, amazing shot! Great feel and depth. I could not go back now to the M9 after the M240, for the ergonomics now. The only issue with the M240 is that the RF re calibration needs to be sent to Solms, which can take about 6 to 8 weeks. With the M9, local Leica service centers can have this done in about 2 days!
Peter, superb series of images!!!
Uhoh, congrats on the M9 and 28 Cron. Amazing combination, and very nice set

I made a photo book of the last year of our family's life, and it made me realize how much I love the Monochrom. Decided to let the M240 go, maybe I'll pick up an M9 to replace it.

MM + Noct:

uhoh7 - The M9 and 28 Cron are magic together, great images btw.

I wish my M240 paired well with the 28 Cron.. I've tried, I just can't get images the way I did with my M9.
I'd honestly consider buying an M9 just for use with the 28, but the bodies are so different, I think the M9 would drive me nuts at this point.

Charlie - good to see you came to your senses and bought a Leica. I am only kidding. It will be nice to see some of your pics with the M9.
Ryan - very nice MM shots! What software do you mainly use to do your PP with the MM files?
Charles - Beautiful! No more 75lux shots please.

I took the M Monochrom and the pre-war Sonnar with me to work yesterday, then for some strange reason turned left instead of right.

Leica M Monochrom at ISO 160 (pull) and 320. Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f/1.5 Sonnar with orange filter, minimal post.

TY all for kinds words

zm18:

This was the "busstop" in the Marilyn Monroe movie of the same name (above)

cv21:

L1000218 by unoh7, on Flickr

The 21 does smear on the M9, though it's much more subtle than A7. The ZM18 is off the hook--I was going to sell it, but now..not so much:

L1000336 by unoh7, on Flickr

Of course I look quite the fool out there trying to frame 18mm with no VF, chimping to see what I had with many shots.

It's like finding water with a divining rod

Also interesting to work with the M9 files in such extreme contrast. It goes from black to white more quickly than the A7, it seems. However, the reward is in the fine fine details
