S1 with vintage lenes
6

Yesterday I wish to look for a 50mm lens for my S1, choices between Lumix S pro-50mm F1.4 and a 2 hand Leica lens, I have tried the Lumix Por 50, it is a great lens, speed good, QC good, but prices also:-|. After cool down, I walk around and found this good condition Leica Summilux-R 50mm 1.4. Slow down the motion taking photo are very fun.

Re: S1 with vantage lenes

Good plan! I really am enjoying using my S1R with a variety of adapted lenses - Canon LTM mount rangefinder lenses, Nikon F mount manual focus lenses of various vintages (pre-AI, AI, and AIS), and Voigtlander, Minolta M-Rokkor, and Konica M-Hexanon lenses in Leica M mount.

Nice photos!

Yeah, the S1 with its great EVF and IBIS makes a terrific camera to use with vintage lenses.

I like my Minolta MD 50mm f/2 and my Minolta MD 200mm f/4. They aren't perfect, but are quite capable.

Anybody using Zeiss Contax to L mount adapter and lenses?  Or Classic Zeiss?  What

adapter do you use?  How is it to work with these lenses?
