Just received my Leitz Summicron-M 50mm f/2.0 "Rigid" yesterday. Optical is in like new condition which is hard to find nowadays.

Here are the test shots that were taken by Leitz 50 2 Rigid. I am pretty satisfied with the results provided by this 50 years old lens. Iy has a very elegant rendering.

Funny, I've been trying to sell a DR summicron for a month now but no takers.

Prices seem to have fallen as well. Maybe because it's not compatible with digital bodies.

Thank you, Pan, this is on the eastern shore of England (WWII bunkers) not far from Harwich in 1980.

My 50/2 Rigid seems to be a bit on the softer side but I like how it renders.

Great pictures, Giganova, they're all great. Fantastic shots. Are the pictures from Buenos Aires or also from other places? I would love to go there for making pictures!

I love that very famous picture of Cartier-Bresson that is shot with an Elmar 35mm, btw. I never realized that the pictures are similar to each other. A great honor for me.

I don't think it is the lens but the way the pictures are scanned or printed that they seem to be a bit on the soft side. Or are they digital?

Hi Erik --

I have been to Argentina 8x now. Buenos Aires, where I usually go, is an amazing city, so full of life! Last time I only took my M4 with 50/2 rigid and loved this minimalistic setup. No fussing around, no distractions.

Regarding the softness of my Rigid, good point that my scanner (Plustek) might be a bit out of focus. I have another scanner and will try to re-scan one negative to compare the sharpness of my scanners.

Amazing photographs!

I use an Epson V600 Photo. I scan my pictures @ 3200 dpi /16 bit grey. I never had any sharpness issues.

Thank you, István, I'm now mainly scanning prints (split grade printed). Somehow the scans get more power then.

I find more and more I miss my good old 50mm Collapsible or at least the look of it. But I don't miss the collapsing part so I am going to pony up big time for a mint 50 F2 Rigid...wow have they gone up in price.

Buy it when you can.
I think Leica old lenses will increase their prices, taking consider that the popularity of mirrorless camera which encourage people to try different lenses.

I searched for quite a bit before I settled on a mint- with a CLA by DAG at Igor Camera for just under $1,300. I think this is the only combination of optics and M3 I will need from here on out.

Just acquired an M3, Rigid Summicron 50 combo. The M3 dates to 1965, the Summicron to 1959.

I'm not a fan of infinity locks, but the one on this lens doesn't seem too obtrusive/obnoxious. I might be able to get used to it.

Do users of the rigid like the infinity lock? Have any removed it and been happier?

It gives a better grip when changing lenses, no need to turn the focusing ring to the other end.
