Giulio,

How many 35mm lens do you have?
I've seen your posts in at least 3 threads: 35 f/1.4 f/2 and f/2.8

Hey Trung! 3 :-)

Summaron 35 2.8 (my first and beloved M-Mount lens I'm using since 2010)

Summicron 35 f2 asph that came in 2013 as I wanted a modern design lens to pair with the summaron.

I thought I could live with the 2 35 above and 2 M2 bodies but...

a summilux 35 v2 infinity lock came in 2014 from Maitani and this is my special rendering 35.

I choose which one to use depending on mood, light etc.

A summilux 50 v2 and a nikkor 5cm 1.4 s complete the kit but I am thinking of getting an elmar-m 50 again (fantastic lens if not for being collapsibile).

Giulio

I highly recommend the Elmar-M 50/2.8 Giulio. Mine's a 1997 model. Compact and capable.

John,


I had one and I loved the rendering of that lens but I wasn't too happy with the collapsible mechanics but indeed I am on the market for another copy :-)

Both pictures with the same histogram.

Been lurking on this thread for a while. The graphics on the cup look sharper to me in the 2nd (version 2) photo.

When you can enlarge the pictures on your device, you'll see that the rangefinder of the used camera (or the curve of the lens) is a bit off: in picture 1 the focus is right on the highlight in the cup. In picture 2 the sharpness is exactly on the graphics.

Here's a shot with the steel rim lens wide open correctly focused on the graphics on the cup. Aperture f/1.4. Lens nr. 2060691.


Erik.

Since there seems to be a great deal of interest in this lens, whose performance varies so markedly at different apertures, I think it would help those trying to decide if they want one if everyone who posts an image would state the aperture at which their picture was taken.

Furthermore, I am really curious what people think a proper price for this lens is right now. Based off of what I have seen on ebay, there is not a lot of good used selection.

Assuming I am not obsessed with having a pristine like new lens, what would you look to pay in USD for these?

This is very difficult to say, because there are so many variations. You first have to decide wich type you want and then follow e-bay for a while on the subject.


Maybe a arrangement of types should be made first: Steel rim type 1 chrome, steel rim type 1 black, steel rim type 1 goggles, steel rim type 1 goggles black, etc.

Whoops my bad. Forgot to specify. This would be on an M4, so I do not need googles.

I am leaning towards the black type 2 summilux. I am fine with some signs of wear on it, just not completely beat to hell

Open to input though if people here think the type 1 has any type of significant advantage over the type 2.

Personally I think that type 1 (steel rim) is a much better lens, above all the lenses starting with serial numbers "206XXXXX". However, I do not know the later lenses "Made in Germany", but I've heard a lot of good about them.

I have a Type 2 Summilux, starting with serial number "222XXXX" but these are to be avoided IMO.

Assuming I did want a canadian summilux, what price would you consider a good deal? All the posts I've found on good prices for this lens are from the early 00's

The best thing you can do is to follow those lenses on eBay for a while and see how much they fetch.

All these lenses are made in Canada, except the last series when the Canadian factory was closed. These are made in Germany.

I guess the cheapest are those with a plastic lever (without an infinity lock) starting with serial number 23XXXXX.

Summilux 35mm pre-asphs sales have been less common on Ebay the last year or so. It seems like the majority of offers come from the same few sellers. They sit there at higher prices and don't sell.

The average sales price for a decent lens seems to hover around $1,800. Ones with issues (separation, significant scratches, major dust, etc) seem to be $300-400 less.

Those prices are for 'common' versions of the lens however.

Hmm, strange, for they are so handy compared to the aspherical 35's.

I wasn't sure where to put this and didn't want to open up a seperate thread for this nonesense... I hope it's okay here.

Today I bought my first Summilux-M 35 Pre-ASPH in a Leica store which got CLAed recently. Furthermore I received my first Jupiter-12 (very clean copy) via post when I got home. Of course I shot a test roll and did a simple and shootout on four frames, just for fun. What do you think: Which one is the Summilux?

When one or more of these shots was made with a Summilux 35mm it was not a good one. De corners and the edges are blurred. Is this with a Summilux 35 with a serial number in the 222XXXX range? I would send the lens back.

It's normal. All 35 summilux pre-asph has field curvature between 2.8 at 8 f/stop. It was projected so.
