Another question to the experienced. Leica 35 Summicron ASPH or the Summilux ASPH? I only ask because I have the opportunity to get the lux at a good price and sell my cron.

Everything you see that I've shot is with a 35 Lux FLE

Agree w/Allen all the way

I currently have both and def. prefer the lux over the cron for it's sharpness wo and it's faster performance in low light. If you can afford the lux get it and sell the cron, you won't be disappointed! Although the cron is no slouch either esp if you tend not to work in lowlight for a majority of the time, but the low light performance is excellent as well, the extra stops of the lux makes it worth it

When you say lux asph, did you mean the latest version, the FLE?

There is an older lux asph, quite different

I had the two confused myself in research last fall.

I guess I should of been more clear. I was talking about the older non FLE version on the Lux.

I really dislike the 35 Cron, as it doesn't suit my style of shooting.. I wouldn't say it's a bad lens, I'd just say that I feel for what I'm looking for in a lens the 35 1.4 pre-asph is probably the best 35mm lens for me.. I have the 35 FLE (haven't had much time with it, but it's starting to grow on me), but feel it's a little more of a clean matter of fact lens (but with more character then the 35cron).. Reminds me of the difference between the 28 Summicron-asph and 28 Elmarit-asph (FLE being the Elmarit-asph in rendering vibe).. Anyway, I'd opt for the pre-fle summilux if I were in your shoes. ONE big plus to the 35summicron is it's size and it looks awesome on an M body!


I think the 35FLE would rock black and white images. Airfrogusmc uses one a lot if I'm not mistaken, and with a monochrom.


Anyway, off to HK on an unplanned trip in the morning.. Going to bring one M240 and the 50APO (was thinking of bringing just the 35FLE since it's new, but decided on the 50APO instead). - See Katie, I'm boring and hate changing lenses


Hopefully I'll have some worth while personal images to post when I get back.

Huff:
"The Leica 35 Summilux ASPH (old version) was also a lens I have owned more than once because I love the way it renders an image. It has gobs of character and has an even faster 1.4 aperture. As much as I loved the Summilux, I always ended up going back to the Summicron (ASPH). Why? Mainly due to the focus shift that has plagued the 35 Lux ASPH ever since the M8 and M9 hit the market. I needed a 35 that I could use for EVERYTHING. Portraits, landscape, architectural, etc. The problem was when I tried to take a shot of a barn or old abandoned house, the 35 Lux would give me that damn shift and my images would be out of focus. So while I loved the character of the Lux when it was “on”, I hated it when it was “off”.

I'm sure some real lens owners will chime in shortly, but my impression is that alot of shooters would prefer the cron 35 asph, but of course the extra stop is tempting.

The FLE seems in another league altogether, even the Sony A7r likes it !

I have both lenses and I use them about equally. The Cron ASPH has better performance wide open compared to the Lux ASPH at f/1,4. The images from Cron ASPH (wide open) is a bit crisper and sharper. It also has a more even performance in the outer zone (I also think Cron ASPH is also better than Zeiss Biogon 35/2 at f/2,0 in this regard). But Lux ASPH has a very attractive rendering style at f/1,4. It's not very sharp but sharp enough with good contrast and excellent color and out of focus highlight. My copy does't have the focus shift issue for close focus distance. That is the reason that I do not feel the need to upgrade it to the FLE version. Stepping down to f/2,8 to f/8,0, both lens are very similar. I really like both lenses but use them for different occasions.

Adam, I've seen your 50apo work, and wouldn't change lenses either... That's a performer! !

Yes, airfrog (Allen) only uses the 35FlE lens and totally rocks it!!

Thank you for all your comments and like. I appreciate.
Really nice images from last pg. I enjoy them a lot

I would pick pre-fle for the rendering and 2nd price difference ($800?). FLE is sharper lens cross frame once stop down though. With saying that, for about $3500~4500,(FLE or non-FLE) that is too expensive IMO.

A few more with 28cron

Katie - Thanks!
zhangyue - Nice shots, first one is my fav.

uhoh7 - I didn't noticed any focus shift issues.. I shot mainly @ 1.4 though so I wouldn't have noticed since mine was optimised for f/1.4... Although I did test it on other apertures and I don't recall any big issues?!
But again, this is why I mentioned that for my style of shooting, and my rendering preference, I like the 35asph better then the 35cron, although after looking at some old photos tonight, I've realised I don't hate the cron as much as I let on

I actually sold my 35 Cron ASPH after I got my Lux ASPH late 90'. I only started fully appreciate the strength of 35 Cron ASPH when I got into digital Ms.

Well the 35 lux is just silly expensive compared to the 50 lux. Why so?

great stuff everyone

still out playing with the zm/35:


L1012052 by unoh7, on Flickr
f/16


L1012112 by unoh7, on Flickr
f/2


L1012099 by unoh7, on Flickr
f/4

for comparison, the 28 cron @f/2

L1011399 by unoh7, on Flickr

so far: the zm35/2 seems excellent. it's no sharper than the 21 SEM, 28 cron or 50 cron, to my eyes so far, in fact it might not be quite as sharp as those lenses--depending on aperture. But it's close. The edges really come in just before 5.6.

Frankly, I enjoy the rendering at speed, and I don't have any terrible bokeh artifacts yet. Lens almost seems a cross between the 28 cron and 50 cron, wide open.

It is the most flare resistant lens I own at the moment, amazing really. I may dump the hood. It puts the cron 28, which is supposedly good with flare, completely to shame in this regard. I love the 28 cron, but try never to leave the hood at home.

Think I will keep the zeiss

focus shift is inherent to the design of the pre FLE. the lens has focus shift, period, whether it's noticeable by all end users or not.

I am just re surfacing from a wonderful weekend, and now a married man Thank you everyone for the kind words and wishes.

I have attached a shot taken by my son, with his A7r and FE 55/1.8. I was off duty this evening

I have been liking the many shots, as I have not had the time to comment individually.

This question and issue, has raised many times before. The 35 Lux Asph pre FLE, does have focus shift issues. The important point depends on how well the pre FLE is calibrated for the M9/M240. If the calibration takes into account a slight forward cusp focus, at MFD at 1.4, and then the focus shifts backwards, but is then compensated with the increasing DOF, it does work well.

I have very similar issues with the 50 Nocti f/1.0 too
