Ok, all of you Leica gurus…this one is actually pretty easy but take a guess what lens I have on the M9. A reader sent it to me to review and it’s a classic. This was the 1st image I tested it with after I attached it to the M9, and as usual I shot it wide open. The image has PP but see if you can guess the lens. 🙂
UPDATE ! – OK guys, it’s been a while and there have been a few guesses. Some of you nailed it! Before I get to the lens here is one more image I shot today of my Niece with it. Again, wide open. You can click it for a large 1800 pixel wide version.
and the lens? A 1942 collapsable Leitz 50 Summitar F2. The guy who write the film article yesterday, Max Marinucci sent it to me to try out and I have to say that it’s one hell of a lens. How much did he pay for it? Under $400! I am going to shoot with it for a while and write up a report on it soon. It’s a sweet lens and when mounted on the M9 makes for a nice small kit! Here it is on the M9:
Thanks for letting me try this lens out Max! Now I want one…bad 🙂
