Leica Summicron 50 vs Leica Summilux ASPH 50 vs Zeiss ZM Sonnar 50
Thoughts so far ..
The Leica Summicron 50mm f2 v5 (“Cron”) is fast becoming my go-to 50mm Leica M mount lens. It focuses closer than the Zeiss ZM Sonnar 50mm f1.5 C (Cron = ~0.68M / ZM 0.9M) and is lighter and smaller than the Leica Summilux ASPH 50mm f1.4 (“Lux”) lens. The Lux can be quite clinical in it’s rendering whereas I think the Cron is closer to the Sonnar with more character. Plenty more testing to be done with each lens but those are my initial findings.

Leica cameras are my workhorse tools for all types of photography, both digital Leica cameras and Leica film cameras. I also use medium format cameras such as Hasselblad and Mamiya (+ 4×5 large format cameras) and develop my film in house. The majority of the blog content is either Leica camera related or film photography. I photograph people; portraits, models, fashion, lifestyle, wedding photography so most of my photography is portraits, experimenting with various cameras, lenses and films. The digital Leica M240 camera is my do everything digital M camera but I shoot film whenever possible.
I hope you find the content as enjoyable to read as I find it is to document.
