I used this lens for a quick, informal test (i.e. normal, hand-held shooting) of the Adox CMS 20 film; apparently the world's highest resolving film. The lens is astoundingly good. A real bargain right now too.

Here's a test shot scanned with a Nikon Coolscan V. Fairly unprocessed except for setting black and white points. No sharpening. Be sure to check out the detail in the 100% crops. However, there is actually more detail in the negative itself than in the scan.

Nice samples.

Have to say I absolutely love this lens. I wasn't sure about the focal in advance, but ever since getting this lens I've used it quite a lot. It's totally surprised me how much I use it.. Actually I think I like it more than my 50 slux pre-asph and that's a tall order!

I'll try and add some samples tomorrow.

Thank you! :) This lens never disappoints!

A couple years back it was a downright steal. Now with the price doubled, still - in the grand scheme of things it's got a fantastic price/performance ratio in the Leica line-up. I though about getting the cron, but it's much bigger, heavier and costlier - plus has a different filter size than usual. It didn't make sense, for me, for the extra stop.

I've got a bunch more photos that I'm PP'ing still that are pretty much solely done with this lens... Should be up by the weekend!

^ Nice shots!

I had to remove about three or four of them however - they were huuuuge. Maybe link to a resized version, or attach them here (which will also resize them)?

Yeah, I'll try and repost them. Noticed afterwards that they ended up in different sizes.. don't really know why, as they were all posted in similar manner :-)
