GF1 with Leica C lens
Apr 2, 2010

At a local camera market, I saw this secondhand small Leica Film Camera, and it was sold for as a kit with 2 lenses, for approx US$800. I brought the kit is for the lenes.

First thought was, it is almost the same size as the GF1

The lenes that come with it a 40mm F2 lens and 90mm F4 Leica-C lens. It will compliment my Pany 20mm, and the 35mm Summilux. So, now it is a new prime lenses kit for my portiart use: 35mm, 40mm & 90mm.

The Summilux-M 35mm APSH is the sharpest, and best quality lens I have ever tried (from a previous purchase). Unbelievable performance. Love the colour and bokeh

The Summilcron-C 40mm F2. Even with the adaptor, it is smaller than the pany 20mm. It fits in to the 20mm pany leather case!

The Elmar-C 90mm F4, it is a nice and sharp tele!

I'll do some test shots and post it next time.

See my other legacy lens try!
