You have extreme high standards. Your pics with the Summarit looks terrific to me; love the rendering!

Well, I think it looks fantastic! Both the lens on the camera, as well as your shots. Sooner or later, I will have some leica glass...

Very nice, Wolfgang. Thanks for sharing this, as I also have the Leica 35 Summarit as well as the 35 Summilux ASPH. I am looking for a good quality adapter for M mount lens for the NEX. Which adapter do you have?

Hi Wolfgang, I saw in your blog that you have tested also the Voigtlander Heliar 15mm, but I can't find your review. I am trying to make up my mind if I should buy it or not. Can you please let me know where I can find the review.
Thanks and regards

Hi Volker,

I haven't written the review yet - I had planned it for today, but the weather is so rainy, that can't provide the test images - I hope it's getting better tomorrow and I'll let you know!

Re: Sony Nex with Leica Summarit 35/2.5

Love the look of your pictures Wolfgang. Is it the lens or do you have some secret sauce settings you apply in post processing?

Re: Sony Nex with Leica Summarit 35/2.5

Thank you! You can download some of my Lightroom presets here

http://motimotion.at/blog/category/lightroom-presets/

  • some of them are good starting points for PP. I'm still working on the raw-presets for the Sony Nex - not really convinced yet.

Re: Sony Nex with Leica Summarit 35/2.5

Why do you have the flash attached btw? Doesn't seem like you use it.

I'm using the VC myself and the build quality is as good as it can get IMHO.

Re: Sony Nex with Leica Summarit 35/2.5

I totally agree the VC adapter is great. I had a cheap Chinese one before and I did not like it at all!

You're right - I don't. It's just - if I need it once in every three months, it's at hand...

The corner performance looks pretty darn good. I don't fully understand why people say all lenses under 35mm smear corners.

Nice, I sure would like to see how the tiny 35 f2.5 Color Skopar would go with the Nex-5.

Re: Sony Nex with Leica Summarit 35/2.5

Wolfgang, btw from your website, the 24mm Elmarit and the NEX look like a killer combo! Do you have an further thoughts on this???

Cheers,
