Won’t ever let it go either. I will get my CLA’d user copy go thought! Just haven’t listed it yet.
nice images above!

i stumbled on mine in the B&H used store. it was priced unusually low, so i took a chance and ordered it. much to my surprise, it had perfect glass. i suspect the prior users used filters at all times. the only downside being that the "key" inside was old or worn out, so it had quite a bit of wobble when focusing. a quick trip to DAG fixed that up. couldn't be happier.

collapsible summicron filter question

I am planning to use my clean collapsible summicron on an upcoming trip where space is at a premium because my wife thinks so. I have a yellow "1" and a green filter, and have read different views as to exposure factors (expressed in stops). Can one of your fine and experienced folks please give me your own views as to how much exposure to add for the yellow and green filters, respectively.
Thanks
Steed

Most standard K2 filters need 2/3 stop via my Pentax spotmeter. If the green is the “GGR” Leica one, it’s about the same. If you are using an m6 or m7, it should adjust on its own. If not, just give yourself an extra stop or so.

When you use Flickr if you want to share a picture use the Share Button and then the BBCode option. Copy and paste the code into Rangefinderforum text box. You do not need to use the link or picture buttons.

And then you are all set. I posted your picture above to demonstrate what it will look like.

This is such a great versatile lens. Can get the leica glow, and still be able to get super sharp images.

It really is. Someday soon I'm gonna do a shootout between all my 50s to see what real world differences I can see. I suspect the collapsible will be top 2 or so for what I'm looking for.

Yes. The rigid summicron. Another of my favorites.

Duckies!

M3 with coll. Summicron, Tri-X 400 in DD-X.
My lens is quite scratched and the pictures are slightly murky, it also is quite flare prone.
I like it, it somehow is superior in character to my Summicron-M 2/50.

I've compared my Collapsible Summicron (has slight haze under the front element and cleaning marks front and back - seen under bright light) directly with my Asph Summilux. The Summicron produces less contrast throughout the stops with a slight (I mean very slight) grey haze - also at every stop, but this is largely correctable in PS. However, as far as I can detect, both lenses are comparably sharp from f/2.8 on.

Absolutely incredible lens considering it's age and condition.

I bought this Summicron on eBay as a "parts-only" lens (but the barrel is immaculate) and sent it to DAG for a CLA and had it 6-bit coded. He brought is back to life! Total investment - $450 (one tenth the cost of my Asph Summilux).

The Summicron is permanently mated to my M2.
