    Yakі hostility in the portions of the 44th Geliosami? Well, 50 and 58 mm are not reeling.

    It was interesting to see the lens from Leica.
    Thanks for the review.

    And here is the confirmation that a famous brand is not always the best of the best.

    The Leica R has always been a by-product, so it doesn't make sense to talk about extra quality here. Their rangefinder optics are another matter.

      Forgive me, Sergei, but this is sheer stupidity: Leitz did not and does not have any “by-products”. Another thing is that the 44s, smacked and spat upon by our home-grown "experts" sometimes turn out to be no worse than the vaunted "eminent" ones. As I have already noted, this primarily applies to the products of KMZ and MMZ (not BELOMO !!!), especially the 60s and early 70s.

    This is the best fifty kopeck who held in his hands
    Price from 500 cu probably scares many away, especially the lens with F2 .. but this lens is not for schoolchildren and gel enthusiasts 44
    When I tried it for the first time (I myself was skeptical before) .. I was just amazed ... I sold all my trash with 1.2 types of Nikor (rare shit) of Revunen and Rocor (although it is excellent)
    Sharpness is striking by 2 (at least shoot landscapes) detail at 21Mr (you increase the photo to 150%, but it does not drop), by the way about detailing .. on 6Mr-12Mr most of the lenses are ideal, at 16-24Mr they float at 100% viewing (no detail ... just not enough resolution in the lens) ... .That's why Zeiss released Zeiss Otus 55mm f / 1.4 and set the price tag of 4000u.e - for 36MP ... and for the same reason canon is in no hurry to make cameras larger than 21MP
    In general, about the sumicron ... the objective is definitely better than such objectives as the topcore 1.4 planar 1.4 for contax and bayonet ZE and ZF many fifty rubles 1.2 .. well, and any trash like Helios 44 - all versions of pentacons, etc. ... it is true that this is my opinion
    Good luck to everyone in choosing !!!

      I completely agree, those who say that Leica is nothing special and Helios was better than just seeing Leica in the pictures) I also sold the whole zoo of scoops and even Zeiss when I moved to a watering can.

    without a doubt this fifty dollars is the best of the best. it can only be criticized by someone who did not shoot them.

    The main feature of Leek is that the average quality spread is the smallest of all, and the optimization of the circuit for working at open apertures. By itself, Canadian leitz for DSLRs is good, and nothing more. The same planars produced by Tomioka under Kontaks are for the most part never worse than these Leitsev, and if you choose, you can find Zenitar, which will not be worse. By the way, Planar 50 / 1.7 is a cheating glass, and it will receive the sum of R-type microns even in the same edge sharpness on the open one, because this planar is essentially a 1.4 lens according to the scheme, but forcibly squeezed half a stop to correct spherical aberration in an open hole.
    The watering cans, from which it is worth talking with a breath, are the M-series watering cans, and that's not all.

      Yuri! Do you have this watering can? If not, then your words are worth a penny. And this applies to everyone who writes negative reviews about lenses without having them in their backpack ... BALABOLY

    I would add that Leica has one important nuance that she actively uses in advertising - volume. It is achieved by a very smooth transition to the blur zone. It is also interesting that in this zone, many lines consist of very small circles - visible at high magnification. Of course, the rangefinder option is simply not decent sharpness compared to the bayonet R. But its bokeh is worse. In general, this is the taste of pure water, but for some reason, of all brands, this is the most interesting, in almost all focal ones. And zooms from Letz shoot much better than many fixes. The main disadvantage is the chromaticity due to the color of the enlightenment, which gives the photographs a kind of "fat brown" tint.

    I have tried many lenses, including Zeiss lenses. I liked Planar 1.7 very much - the most predictable lens - he shot elements of landscapes in the open - and with a bang. But… I tried Letz Colorplan 90 / 2.5 (I sawed it myself) - volume !!! Everything, it seems, I got sick with Leica - I don't want to put on other lenses.

    Tell me how the interaction with the camera, i.e. How does he transmit aperture information to Nikon, for example?

      There is no interaction with the diaphragm. It's just that the aperture is usually covered with hands, and the camera already selects the shutter speed according to the amount of light. The jump rope usually does not work - the adapter is simply covered and the diaphragm is closed as far as it is closed, when it is closed, focusing and shooting occurs.
      And not all cameras can do this. The Nikons, if I remember correctly, knew the older models. Now I don't know - I switched to canon a long time ago.

    Leitz Summicron-R 1: 2/50 The lens is characterized by a completely recognizable "thoroughbred" bokeh, and is very plastic.

    There is one common drawback to the reviews here - it is necessary to simulate a certain scene at home, and all lenses must also be programmed on it, so that you can see how different lenses behave when photographing in equal conditions, only then you can compare them with each other, otherwise it turns out that the top lens is from Leica is almost no different from Helios. This is definitely not the case. I used this lens, and I also have the M version, and both of them are head and shoulders above the majority of fifty dollars precisely in the transfer of volume. The new Sigma Art 50 / 1.4 was returned to the seller after the very first tests, since it basically does not transfer the volume. By the way, in terms of volume, everything is great only with Leik lenses, Zeiss and Fochtlander lenses are very close to them, for example, I personally can confirm this with Zeiss Loxia 50/2, Zeiss Milvus 50/2. These Lakes probably use some kind of glass known to them alone, maybe this is even their secret, and therefore the pictures from them have been the best for almost a century. I would very much ask respected Arkady, if possible, to simulate a couple of different scenes at home and leave it forever, with the same lighting, and after testing the lens, play it on these scenes. Then it will be possible to really compare them with each other. Also, there is no way to test a lens for a full-frame sensor on a cropped sensor from a camera of the lowest price range. I understand that a Canon 5D is not always on hand, but at least this should be taken into account in the reviews. By the way, Helios also convey volume and very well ...

      Koba, do not languish, show us where the volume is and where it is not! It's so simple, took and put pictures here, and we will admire. Since you are so skilled in entom polyglot.

    As for the lemons in the corners, I do not agree, here the same helios have 44x standard lemons, and here are ovals, which indicates a more elaborate optical scheme, correct if I am mistaken ..
