Another window light portrait, in front of my “famous” window.
…this time I offer a twist on an old theme: this image was taken with a recently acquired (and adjusted, in Japan) Leica 35mm Summicron (8 element) lens, otherwise known as Version 1 of the legendary 35mm Summicron. My lens was made in Germany in the early 60s. It’s an example of the relatively less common screw mount (LTM) version, but mine was subsequently converted to M mount by Leica.
The lens arrived today. I mounted it on my Leica M9P and fired off the above “test” shot, wide open at f/2.
Here’s what the lens looks like:
It’s tiny, light, and another jewel in the Leica crown.
