I may have to get one of mine from storage along with the big barndoor shade.

We will see how it works on the M9

Been checking this thread for a while, so it's nice to finally be able to contribute something. 1949 10-bladed Summitar on a IIIc, Portra 160.

I recently had a friend give me a 10 bladed late 1940s Summitar. I have always enjoyed the look this little collapsable chrome beauty gives, I think it goes well with the Double-X I have been shooting. Those Portra 160 shots are beautiful though!

I use the Leitz "barndoor" shade, or a series filter adapter / hood if using filter.

I have two Summitars, one coated, one uncoated. Both have really clean glass. On the uncoated lens, I use a generic hood I got from Heavystar, which attaches to a Summitar - 39mm adapter. Using that hood, I have not had any problems with flare. On the coated lens, which I have not had for that long, I'm not using a hood or shade (except in rainy conditions), although I keep a filter on the front which may provide a modicum of protection. I'm discovering that this particular lens flares very little, which is contrary to the received wisdom that Summitars are particularly flare prone.

I had another coated Summitar a few years ago (sold it) for which I also had the barn door shade, but that shade was so ungainly I never used it and ultimately sold it.

A clean, uncoated Summitar is a glorious lens, and I look forward to seeing what you do with it, Erik.

Thank you, Luditte Frank and Steve. I will look for a generic hood and an adapter.

Great picture, Steve. I really enjoy your Sweden series, being a big fan of Swedish detective stories (Mankell), but never been there myself.

Erik.

interesting thread, good photos. Now if I would like to have one is anything to be careful when buying? Is a price in the range 350/400 EUR correct for this kind of lens? Any serial number to avoid? Or to look for?

Robert, personally my preference would be for the 10-blade aperture over the 6-blade, but beyond that relatively minor consideration I think it's simply condition. I would think that, with some patience, you could find a nice Summitar for somewhat less than the price range you suggest.

At 350/400 Euro you could by one in very good condition.

The 6-blade aperture supposedly reduces vignetting in the corners better then the 10-blade version does. I don't really see it.


Uncoated Summitar, Fomapan 100, There is some slight shutter drag on this IIIcK

I agree. All three Summitars I've purchased (still own two) were acquired from members here, so they do come up from time to time. Prices run in the $250 to 350 US range. The pre-war versions are uncoated (unless coated later); clean samples can be incredibly fine. The very late serial numbers are actually prototype collapsible Summicrons, and are likely to fetch higher prices. Those considerations aside, the key is sample quality. The Summitar is a beautifully constructed lens. I think it's easier today to find a clean sample than it is to find a clean collapsible 'cron.

Thanks, 250-350 $ (=EUR) is ok with my budget for this GAS attack ! But I need to find something in Europe in order to avoid duty cost. Where I live I had to pay duty also on the shipment cost!
Now, waiting for a few more pictures to enjoy...
