Since the disappearance of convenient labs to develop film and give me good quality prints on CD, my Leica IIIf  stares at me from a shelf, collecting dust.  It does, however, make a good subject for lens tests.

In this case, I was trying the OMD E-M1 with a silent shutter.


Nice portrait. :-) I've never liked rangefinders, so the IIIf doesn't speak to me, although I understand your nostalgia. I do like some old lenses, for their failings that have largely disappeared in more recent offerings. Obviously, I also like the amazing current lenses, for different reasons.

So, I quite like the lens. A slightly older design than the 58/1.2 Canon I have. If you had a Sony A7, you could, as I do, use that old lens very well.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
