Here I have one Summilux 35mm f1.4 first version steel rim with extremely early serial number: 1730018
I don't see any example earlier than this one on the Internet.


Leitz 35mm f/1.4 Summilux Version.1 Steel-Rim (goggles) by Kevin-Xu, on Flickr

According to the record, this copy is the 18th steel rim Summilux 35 1.4 that been made in its first-year production in 1960.

Is it? I did not know that. Interesting. Thanks! I take it as a compliment. In fact I found what was above them more interesting than what was beneath them.

Do you know more rules of composition?

Erik.

Not really, the rule of thirds is the most often referred to that is why I know it. Editorial pictures use this rule (especially when shooting landscapes) as it gives them plenty of space to write a heading. Some camera makers (i.e. Minolta) would arrange the AF sensors following the rule of thirds back in the 90's (I know that the 7xi, 9xi and 700si follow that).

Edit: actually I am pretty sure that a lot of your pictures follow that rule.

Thank you, Pan. I like to play with composition, but I never take a ruler with me.

I do not like lop-sided pictures, I always try to hold the camera as straight as possible. Because I want to print the whole negative, this is very important for me.
Over the years, one gets a certain feeling of how to compose a picture. In the end you do not think about it anymore, it seems as if it goes without saying.

I like it that you make a lot of vertical pictures (portrait orientated), a completely different way of composing.

Erik.

They are tourists, citizens and workers, all together. There are (free) ferries that depart from the central railway station to Amsterdam Noord. Very photogenic!

Erik, in case you haven't seen it already, there are quite a few videos online about how Stanley Kubrick used to compose his cinematography. I find them interesting although it is quite difficult to spontaneous compose that way when out in the streets.

I am a big fan of Stanley Kubrick, above all Barry Lyndon. I will try to find the videos.

In photography Cartier-Bresson is my hero. It seems that he does not think about composition, but he was a pupil of André Lhote, a painter.

Erik,
here are an ITW of Joe Dunton about Kubrick's fave lenses :

Wow...I never cease to be amazed at the beautiful bokeh the 35mm pre-aspherical Summilux lens produces in photos.

Erik, I really like your work as I have commented many times. thank God you don't think about rules to often what some of the greats had to say about rules of composition. I find your compositions to be personal and not a product of formula's. And because of that and a few other things I can usually tell your work without seeing the name associated with the photograph. This is described by Weston in the last quote below.
A little video by one of the greats Jay Maisel.
https://vimeo.com/116692462 It's short and really worth a watch.

And some words by some of the greats.

"When subject matter is forced to fit into preconceived patterns, there can be no freshness of vision. Following rules of composition can only lead to a tedious repetition of pictorial cliches." - Edward Weston

"There are no rules and regulations for perfect composition. If there were we would be able to put all the information into a computer and would come out with a masterpiece. We know that's impossible. You have to compose by the seat of your pants." - Arnold Newman

"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." - Ansel Adams

"And in not learning the rules, I was free. I always say, you're either defined by the medium or you redefine the medium in terms of your needs." - Duane Michals

"There are no shortcuts, no rules." - Paul Strand

"Photography is not a sport. It has no rules. Everything must be dared and tried!" - Bill Brandt

"I came from the outside, the rules of photography didn't interest me... "-William Klein

"...... a photograph can look any way. Or, there's no way a photograph has to look (beyond being an illusion of a literal description). Or, there are no external or abstract or preconceived rules of design that can apply to still photographs. "-Garry Winogrand

and maybe my favorite " ......so called “composition” becomes a personal thing, to be developed along with technique, as a personal way of seeing." - Edward Weston

I got back into shooting film a couple of weeks ago. With the same M4 I used earlier, but no 35 lux at the moment. Scanning some old stuff makes me miss it! No distortion, tons of character. Some day I'll have to get one again!

My 1972 Summilux 35mm f/1.4 is one of my favorite lenses. I've used it on several cameras ... Leica M9, M-P typ 240, SL, M-D typ 262, and now CL. (It does pretty well adapted to the Hasselblad 907x as well, although I don't have any photos posted from that combination yet.) It has a wonderful range of rendering capabilities available at the turn of the aperture ring and is small and light.

I like this photo I made with it one day as I walked into the garage to get my car:


Leica M-P + Summilux 35mm f/1.4 v2
ISO 200 @ f/2 @ 1/45

I have others posted on flickr.com as well: 71 More Summilux 35 Photos

A lovely, useful lens, worth the hunt for a good example and the price.
