GM1 + Elmar 50mm F2.8 (M)

Elmar 50mm F2.8 is a retractable M-mount Rangefinder lens, a faster lens compare to the popular Elmar 50mm F3.5. It is relatively softer in rendering.

This is a heavy and solid lens, not as heavy as the Summitar.  Retractable design is beautiful, and smooth rotation with a nice focus tab.  The copy is not is the best shape.  There is coating loss and dust in the lens, bet it still renders wonderfully.

My Elmar is soft and great for portiarts.  It is actually better for digital, because the result files are more flexible for pushing and pulling the tones.  I don't use it as much as the Summitar, but I should use it more often.
