Leica M9 with the 35mm Summicron f2 ASPH first shots

June 05, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I just got my used 35 mm Summicron F2 ASPH from Leica Store Miami and it's mint! This lens is 6 bit coded and was a very reasonable $2195. The lens is like brand new. Figures it's raining out and the photo opportunities are limited on the way to work so I was only able to do some basic testing. I went down to the water front and jumped out of the car for a brief shot and on the way out my door I grabbed a shot of some bushes etc. Not very exciting but I will post more later on as I get a chance to shoot more. I am including color and B&W just to give you a feel for how the lens performs in drab lighting. I'm not going to go overboard yet but the results are very nice. I set the camera to pick up the 6 bit coding automatically which it seems like it did. Not a lot of data. No shutter speed (aperture priority) and no f stop recorded. The focus is very smooth. I am so used to focusing my very old 28mm Elmarit V.1 which is smooth but slow so the ease of focusing caught me by surprise. Looks like the 28 will be going back to Leica for a CLA. More to come
