My collection of Voigtländers in M39/LTM. Original sunshades removed in back row.
All lenses are equipped with the LTM to Leica M adapter for easier change on the Ricoh.

Ricoh GXR-M & Leitz Summicron 50/2 LTM:



Ricoh GXR-M & Topcon Topcor 90/3.5 LTM:



Both just downsized for presentation (no crop). Obviously the Topcor was the better lens for that task. Wink
However, on my 27" monitor the first picture represents more the original size of the lenses, in the 2nd one the appear bigger as they actually are.
Ricoh GF-1 flash was used.

Cheers,

Thank you!

The good thing is that those lenses are quite useful too. Wink
So they are not only collecting dust...

Indeed! Wink

I've published already some examples at MFlenses....

Especially the Nokton 50/1.5 is one of the best lenses ever! I love it.

I really prefer the M39/LTM lenses as they are better usable on different cameras and M39 adapters are very cheap.

Additionally 40mm doesn't add much value between my existing Ultron 35 and Nokton 50.

Actually I own only 1 Leica-M lens, the 90/2.8 Elmarit, because I didn't find a nice copy in LTM at that time, my other Leitz's are also LTM (50/2 Summicron and 135/4 Elmar).
So I'm rather fine with RF lenses. I have some others too to play around. Wink
