Leitz Wetzlar (Leica) Elmarit-R 1:2.8/35 (II)

I realized today that I just kept this lens around because I knew I liked its photos and its handling, but had never actually gone on a "let's see what happens if" walk with it. So, here are two sample images, one open and close focus, and one stopped down and infinity focus. The lens is a 2nd generation 35mm f/2.8 for Leica's SLR system.

Note that while I played with the development settings of the whole pictures, the 100% crops were set to default Lightroom 4 import settings except increased exposure (2+ stops) on the infinity-focus crops.

Taken with handheld K-5.

Open: I think f/2.8.

100% crop, near center of frame.

100% crop, near edge of frame.

Stopped down: I think f/8.0.

100% crop, near center of frame.

100% crop, near edge of frame.
