Reviews and Problems with Leica 90mm f/2.5 Summarit-M
Showing 1-5 of 5
Not up to the usual Leica build quality
17 March 2013
Summary: If you reviewed this lens w/o knowing it was a Leica lens, you would be impressed by its extremely sharp performance. But if you compare it to top end Leica lenses like the 90mm Macro Elmar, you would notice that the Summarit renders images much flatter and colder.
Summary: I was a bit concerned after reading some not so great comments about this lens. In fact, many suggested to buy a used 90mm Elmarit instead. I am sorry, but I do not agree. This is a fantastic lens. Some have also criticized the construction quality of the lens... here again, I must disagree.
Summary: I primarily shoot with a 50mm 1.4 Summilux and 35 f2 Summarit. I wanted something with a little more reach, but did not want to spend the money for an f/2 Leica. This lens is perfect. Nice weight, balances well with my M9-P, and MP. Quality built.
Summary: I had the chance to handle this fine M-mount rangefinder camera portrait (short telephoto) lens at this year's Photo Plus East and came away quite impressed with it. It focuses nearly as quickly as my APO-Summicron-M lens, but, better yet, offers a level of a performance that is as good as, if not...
Conclusion: Jag köpte min Summarit 90mm efter att länge övervägt en begagnad Elmarit 90mm 2.8 eller en Summicron 2.0, åre asph, för ungeför samma pengar.
Summariten hade lite dåligt rykte och jag inbillade mig att Elmariten skulle slå den.
Men jag hart inte ångrat en sekund att jag köpte objektivet.
Pros: skarp, lätt, liten, hög kvalitet, förhållandevis bra pris.
Cons: Billigare än andra Leica-gluggar men fortfarande dyr.
