28mm Summicron ASPH shots

I couldn't find a thread like this - can this be true?

I just bought my 28 Summicron back and have now the first moments with the lens again:

Does not seem an aspheric lens, because black and white looks like a classic Leitz lens, with a beautiful gray scale.
However, it is an excellent tool for the reportage and the bokeh is lovable.
I think it's the best fast 28mm available.

Beautiful photos... bravo!

I wanted a fast (strike ZM 2,8/25 and 2,8/28), well-behaving (strike CV 28/2), modern and small (strike CV 28/1.9) 35 equivalent that would spend 90% of time on my M8. I mainly shoot colour.

At first I thought that there is no way that I'm going to spend that kind of money on a single lens, but you can guess the end result...

I like it. But, I now use it mostly on M6 and use M8 less and less and if that continues and I should sell the M8 I would probably have no problem selling 28/2 and buying Zeiss Biogon 2/35. But on the other hand, I've come to like 28mm on FF...

SO nice. The rendering looks a LOT like the 35/2.8 C-Biogon. It's the only current Leica lens that I've seriously thought about buying.

I bought this lens mainly for how it performs wide open - like in the photo above.

This thread is taking off to a nice start ;-) Keep them coming !!!

Mladen - it's no specific joke, just making fun ;-) Works always (almost).

Here is another subject - You will find, that in a city as Shanghai, there are many very fortunate children, raised with iPhones, designer clothing, jewelry, taken out in Lamborghini, Porsche and alike to the finest restaurants for dinner and brought to private schools, to ensure maximum safety for the child's bright future.

There always is the other side, as seen in one of the many demolition sites around Shanghai - here a site, that is currently in demolition status.
Children, likely of workers, who came to Shanghai for labor are playing around the place, given to their parents for living during their time of work, dissecting old buildings, recycling bricks and evening the land for the next construction of high risers (you can see the Shanghai Financial Center, the biggest tower currently in Shanghai, in the background):

Dirk, they loo0k like fine pictures, but the image size is so large I have to scroll back and forth to see them on my laptop. Wish I could see the whole picture on my screen.

I think that Pieter above nailed it when he wrote: "smooth but sharp rendering"

My copy of the 28/2 Summicron is scarily sharp - easily sharper than the Zeiss 25/2.8 Biogon that I had before (but that lens did wobble abit...). It is truly a lens designed to be used mainly wide open. Because then the smoooth-sharp rendering is most apparent. Yes, it does vignette somewhat wide open, but I find that it actually improves many photos because it automatically de-clutters the (wide angle) photo and focuses attention to the centre. However, maybe half the time I compose with interesting subject matter a the edges of photos, so I do sometimes have to lighten up the corners/edges in photoshop for that reason.

This picture illustrates the beneficial effects of the vignetting of this lens. See the luminousity on the boy and the rock compared to the corners of the picture. (Of course it also has to do with the patch of sunlight he's sitting in...)

I should not have visited this thread. Thanks God I already have the 28 2.8 ASPH which snookers me for the Summicron, I hope.

The Elmarit ASPH is every bit as good at every aperture but 2.0

I tested the Elmarit ASPH against the Summicron, was hard pressed to see any difference between the two Leica lenses in prints.

The 28/2 'Cron ASPH is truly a magical lens, particularly on a film M.

This lens has become my mainstay lens. I have come to regard the 28mm as my normal lens and the 50mm focal length as a short telephoto, the same way some would think of the 75mm focal length.

If you have a 28mm and a 50mm, you have probably 90% or more of possible shooting situations covered in my experience. These two lenses would make an outstanding all around two lens kit.

@ Photon42:
I simply love your images in your post #33. Just outstanding! Congratulations on producing such great work!

Well it did come back. But with a new problem, so it had to go back. *sigh* Not sure how long they're gonna make me wait. I just don't like that I can't get a straight answer on the phone or a reply to my email inquiries.

After contemplating about this lens for quite few years and owning CV28/3.5 and Elmarit-M 28 ASPH, I finally made up my mind and ordered one (v1, CLAed by Leica). I should have it early next week and I can hardly wait to test it out.

In the meantime, I'd love to see more photos from you guys. Please show me your favorite Summicron 28mm shots!

I'm very fond of the 28mm Summicron lens, a long-time favorite. Let's start with the Minolta CLE not long after I got the lens.
