Remember that scene in Star Wars™ where ‘ole Ben Kenobi says to those crazy Stormtroopers “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for…”
…and they believe him?!
(I know…I know…Jedi mind trick. Relax.)
In any case, the Summarit 50mm f/1.5 LTM recently came to my house to live…And it is staying for keeps. If you’re shooting the Mono, this IS the lens you’re looking for.
(You see what I did there?)
It is definitely not “digital-clinical”–It has plenty of character, and can be just about anything from “crazy-glowy” and swirly-like-mad, to sharp and detailed.
These photos were all taken in a 24 hour period. I have tried to process them all with slightly different subtleties in order to showcase the nuances of this lens. These may not be for everyone, but for me: It is staying on the camera for a very long time.
Thanks for looking,
