Leica Elmar 3.5cm f/3.5, 35mm LTM Silver, Screw M39

Sold

This lens was the new double gauss design at that time and has been introduced in 1948. The design showed it's easily to handle an aperture in 2.8 but the company decided to limit the maximum in 3.5. The lens was also a good solution for user in shooting colour film for its good color correction for the first element.

This lens is the first new design after the war. It is of double-Gauss construction and has been introduced in 1948. Many sources give 1946 as the earliest date, with serial # 601001, but the factory records indicate that this batch was reserved for the Elmar 50mm. See the Appendix for a more detailed discussion. At full aperture the performance is visibly improved when compared to the Elmar 35mm. Contrast is close to medium and on axis (till image height 6mm) fine detail is resolved with good visibility and only slightly fuzzy edges, but in the field the contrast drops rapidly and details become quite soft.

Stopping down brings some improvements, but gradually and we need to use aperture 1:8 to get a clear definition of the fine detail over most of the picture area, excluding the outer zones that stay soft. In the centre we now very good definition of the very fine details. For best close-up pictures, stopping down is necessary. Vignetting is 1.5 stops and distortion very well controlled.
