Unfortunately it's digital - sony a7ii.
I'm quite pleased with it's color output, has almost slide-like look.

When I first started shooting with RF cameras I used a Summitar lens and noticed the shots were somewhat soft. Later when I purchased a IIIG that had a Summicron I noticed the shots were sharper and I put away my Summitar lens. Now I have learned so much about RF cameras and lenses that I am going to get out my Summitar lens and shoot with it.
But I will admit that I have shot a lot with my Nikkor 50.2 LTM lenses and enjoyed not having to pull out the lens for quick shots made it great. But then I could not fully close my IIIf in its leather case to protect the camera on walkabouts.

I am going to look for my Summitar to put it on my IIIf.

After looking I found my Summitar and it was on an extra Leica iiif and the case also had an Elmar 50/2.8 in it that I had forgotten that I had. I will enjoy shooting both.

How is that possible @ full aperture? The blades are all gone then.

I took mine to an early brass car museum. I like that it has a little soft glow, wide open.

WOW! Love how your lens render
Which serial number your lens has?

Background gets swirly depending on light, aperture and distance.
Your pictures look like f5.6 or f8, usually no swirls at that aperture, in my exp.
But maybe, earlier units are more prone to produce swirls.
Mine is from 1949 and can get swirly.

I use the clamp-on SOOPD (And the one for Summitar/Summicron, I forget the code), which grabs it pretty well.
But these barn-doors hoods are HUGE! so they're not for everyone

I have the barn door hood but use it rarely. In my experience the Summitar does not like harsh light, so I prefer to use it when it is overcast or in the late afternoons. Then I don't need a hood. Mine is from the early 1950s.

I have just realised that it has been almost ten years since you started this thread!

I got hold of a barn door hood a few months ago and the couple pics up the page (#577 and 578) are with the cumbersome hood attached. I think the hood did help those examples. The hood closes up to a broad rectangle onto the lens to save a slight amount of space, when not in use.

I use a generic 39mm hood coupled to a step-down ring, which I bought from Heavystar years ago. The barndoor shade is effective, but looks odd in my opinion. The Heavystar hood works just fine. I have two Summitars and have put step down rings on each, which allow me to use standard 39mm filters (and hoods) on them.

I have the barndoor type, but in all honesty I find it a bit unwieldy.
The fact it folds up is useful though
I tend to use an IROOA, which with the Summitar filter fits OK, although not an absolute fit like on a Summicron 5cm or 35mm that's it's designed for.
Seem to remember reading somewhere that the Summitar hood groove shape/depth varies through the years of manufacture, so this might affect how well a slide on pinch hood fits.
