Taking the ferry over to Helsingør from the Swedish side, Helsingborg.

All with an M3 and a collapsible 50/2.0 Summicron. I’m about due for a modern 50.


  1. Hi Daniel,
    Nice set. Do you meter with Leicameter, handheld or just good guesses?

    I was shooting with M6 and 2.0/50 coll. Summicron today. In color, so results will not be back for a while. (Hard to shoot Vermont foliage season in B&W…;-))

    I am also debating trading both my Leitz 50s (2.0/50 S., and 3.5/50 E.) in for a current 1.5/50 C-Sonnar as my one high speed lens. Of course a used Summilux 1.4/50 (or 1.4/35) would be nice but it would have to be a real bargain… which does happen occasionally.

  2. Hi Jan, nice to see you here.

    These particular shots were all guesstimates, but they were all taken under conditions I know well, so I knew what the meter reading would be if I had taken one. I usually use a Gossen Digisix in incident light mode.

    The one of Ewa with her magazine was 1/15 @ 2. It was a pure guess since the lamp is new and it is one of those energy saving types. It’s not ver strong at all.

    I like my 50/3.5 Elmar. It’s probably worth your while keeping it.
