Like the Zeiss thread, it would be nice to see samples from all Leica R series lenses on this thread.
Please state the lense, aperture if possible and on which body.

I'll start.
5D with my Leitz 50mm f2
Wide open or at f2.8, handheld. I don't know why I didn't use a tripod

Here are a few with my Leica 90 summicron (non-AA). All of these were stopped down a bit. I don't remember how much. All of these were with an elpro 3 close up lens. I like the .7M MFD with this lens and you can get quite close with the elpro 3.

These are with the 2/180 Apo Summicron and 1DsIII.

Just got my second Summicron-R 50mm. (first one had to be sent back due to oil on blades). One sample:

Apo Makro Elmarit on 5D M2,

all handheld, so if blurry mostly due to me than the lens.

Thanks.

It's sun reflecting off a gold section of the building and lighting up fog that is already thinning. It happens only a couple of times a year.
