Camera Porn!

Picture of 1958 Leica M2 + 1954 Leica Summarit 50mm f1.5 lens taken with Leica M9 + Leica Summicron 90mm f2 @f2 and 1/12 handheld

 

My most beautiful camera setup to date. And best of all I didn't buy them to polish and keep in a glass cabinet, I bought them to use! Both the camera and lens are in fantastic condition considering they are over 50yrs old. I don't thin kmy Nikon D800 will still be in use in 50yrs time!

 

Leica Summarit 50f1.5 sample images to follow. There is a lot of bad images on the internet using this lens together with terrible reviews. As far as I can see this was unfair and they should have asked someone who can focus a manual lens to do the review! :P

 

My first impressions of this lens are fantastic (on my M9). Blog with more info to follow.
