This is the E39 version

All shot with the M9

Most of them straight out of the camera, a few had a little tinkering done in LR for contrast

Even the weather was not good during your visit in Rdesheim great IQ. Clearness and sharpness top-notch. M9 like.

I won't pretend to understand all of that information, but from what I do understand it's an amazing lens. Surprised

That combo plays in an upper league Wink...
That's the sharpness I like.
Thanks for sharing, interesting samples.

Apparently, even the 1950's version is a good performer. I will have to try this version out too!

Very nice IQ indeed. When I found out that this is a Tessar design, it made me think of the Contax Zeiss 45/2.8 which I think gives a bit of the same feeling..

Brilliant lens, highly underrated

still sells for less than 1000 if you want to grab one! see, you're slowly descending into the hither unknown deeper levels of dante's hell - leica lust Laughing
