Just got this lens yesterday, tested it out on my SL2-s with my wife, didn't take long into the walk before I realized this lens REALLY good.
I couldn't find this thread because I was looking in the Leica forum, so I was reading the old thread Genji started and comments were mostly regarding Sony body's. (Anyways, I found this one this morning)

I love it. I read that it wasn't so sharp wide open....But on my SL2-s it's super sharp and only gets a little dreamy if I'm close to minimum focus distance, even then, the focal point is sharp.

I shot the 75 Summilux for about a year. That lens, to me, is a character lens, the flare can get crazy and you have to be careful shooting it outside. Introduce sun and enjoy massively reduced contrast. I don't remember it being as sharp as this CV either.

Anyways, cool, found a thread to post some of the test shots in

All wide open, all on my SL2-s

It's a heck of a lot easier nailing focus wide open with the SL series. With my m10r's rangefinder it's hit and miss, and miss. It makes the keepers a little sweeter.

The short focus throw makes it challenging to focus it on the M10-R for sure, especially at close distance.

From my experience after a couple of months of using this lens on different M cameras:

+ Use diopter lens attachments on the M camera to make sure the focus in the rangefinder is ideal in case you are far- or near-sighted and don't use glasses while shooting.

+ The 0.68x or 0.72x magnification rangefinders can still be challenging with 75 mm to focus wide open.

+ Best rangefinder camera to get the focus spot on wide open was with my M3 where its 0.91x magnification proved very beneficial. I simply estimated the 75 mm frame from cutting a bit from each side of the shown 50 mm frame lines. Issue with the M3: make sure not to focus closer than 1 meter (the lens goes down to 0.7 m) since the M3 rangefinder is limited to 1 m MFD. My few out-of-focus shots taken with the M3 were caused by accidentally moving the lens focus below the 1 m mark.

+ Have light available when trying to attach this lens to the camera mount - the tiny red line as mount mark on the lens is invisible in dim light (at least on my silver lens version) and makes it therefore hard to find the correct position to mount the lens on the M-mount camera.

Has somebody compared to Samyang 75 1.8 directly? I had the Samyang, but I didn't like the cheap plastic contrustion. I'm considering the CV75 1.5 with E-mount adapter as first priority, or the CV 110 2.5.
Sigma 85 1.4 DG DN is the same price range, but I prefer MF, and both the CV110 and Sigma is lot heavier than the 75 1.5.

One thing for sure, you will have no complaints about the construction of the VC 75 1.5. It is outstanding. At the same time it manages to be realively small and light. The best part is that it is an optically interesting lens.

I also use it adapted to my Sony e-mount camera. Works great.

Leica M-E 240, CV 75/1.5 M-lens. I am using this lens now more often than my 50 mm lenses. The 75/1.5 has become one of my favorite short tele lenses to shoot with. Amazing bokeh wider open and track sharp corner to corner when stopped down.

Worked in Amsterdam last night. Had some time to burn before my train left. Nokton does well under citylights
