Today I (Mehrdad) want to start a new series on our blog and YouTube. "Around the world in 35mm" Why, why, why...read on.
Why? Why? Why?
As a Leica M user, the 35mm focal length is like bread and butter optics. I would bet that every M user has at least one 35mm in his pocket and most of them even looked for a 35mm lens as their first lens.
At Leica, the Summicron 35mm has a very good reputation. Rightly so, I would think.
Leica first launched a Summicron 35mm with Leica M-mount in 1958 with the 8 Elements and since then the Summicron series has enjoyed great popularity.
I'd like to take a closer look at each model (series products!) released since 1958, especially in terms of performance on the M10R (40MP) and the new M11.
We'll start with the wonderful 8 Elements, which we've featured before here and here on our blog.
Thanks to FOTO-GÖRLITZ for the loan.
I still publish here all the images I also show in the video.
Have fun looking at them.
