All 35mm lenses, here we have the least expensive contender Color Skopar 35mm Pancake PII
In the beginning I can say the Biogon C is sharper and has better rendition of blurred backgrounds, while the Skopar is very close. The only one that is different in rendition of color and blurred areas is the Summaron. I can’t decide what lens will be the keeper yet.

Just a quick snap with with a 90mm.
Technical and Visual Aspect:
• Smaller than Most SLRs (travel light)
• Very Low Noise operation
• Really Nice Vintage Look
• Small Sharp Lenses Available
• Focus is easier to achieve manually and more reliable than SLRs (with slow moving subjects)
• Very Low Light Focusing Possible
• Using a fixed ISO such as 400 Film lets you get a constant feel for light and you can guess your shutter and aperture without using light meter at many times and this helps you see light in a different level where you can concentrate more on why you are taking a photo
• My nose isn’t pushed to the side by camera
I will continue to update with more content as I try to explain (to myself) the reason why I enjoy my M3 more than any other camera.
I still enjoy shooting my M3, the camera handles better than the M 240, could it be the size? or is it in my mind…
I did, I committed the mishap of turning the screws to see why it was wobbly. I couldn’t resist. The problem was I could not reassemble it.
So, it’s in DAG’s hands now. Leica repairman.
After last in studio session, as I went trough images I noticed the images from the Lux M appeared sharper. So, I shot the same subject at roughly the same distance to see if I was really doing a bad job at focusing or was my version of the Elmarit M that wasn’t doing very well. After the little test, I know MY Elmarit M isn’t as sharp as people say it is. Could be that the lens needs to be adjusted or could it be that the Lux is simply an amazing sharp lens?
