Anyone use 40mm Summicron-C with M8/M9?
Jan 23, 2010

And does it focus sharply?

I got a Nokton 40mm f/1.4 as my first lens and sold it to buy the Summicron-C. My M8 had to go back to Leica shortly after I purchased it, so I'll have to wait to test it out. One issue with the Nokon was significant back focusing when it was wide open. I don't know if it was the lens or the rangefinder (which Leica is adjusting). In the meantime, I've heard some things about the Summicron-C's incompatibility with the M8/M9 when it comes to sharp focus. See http://www.rangefinderforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=85203

Any 40mm users out there? How good is its focus on the digital M bodies?

Thanks!
