Something more about the Summaron 35mm, my birthday present of this year.

The Summaron 35mm that I've used for a long time is still one of my favorite. Yeah, I'd had a lens of 35mm angle of view. So why now I bought the other one, the Summicron. Quite frankly I had no reason especially, it's just a hobby. Not to forget that it's formally as my birthday present. If there was darely something as a reason, it would be the minimum focal length. People who know, know it though, the minimum focal length of the Summaron is about 1 meter. On the other hand, the Summicron I bought is 70cm. This 30cm looks a tiny difference, but it's actually so big.

もともと長いこと使っている Summaron 35mm は今でもお気に入り。うん、35mm のレンズは持ってたわけだ。じゃあなんでもう1本、Summicron を買ったのか、と。率直に言えば特に理由もない。ただの趣味。正式には誕生日プレゼントってことも忘れちゃいけない。あえて理由があるとしたら最短焦点距離。知ってる人は知ってると思うけど Summaron は最短焦点距離1メートル。それに対して自分が買った Summicron は70cm。この 30cm の違いは小さく見えて、実はかなり大きい。

The one originally I had just after buying the Leica M-P itself was the Summicron 50mm. Yep, 50mm of angle of view. The next Summicron I bought was the APO-Summicron 75mm. This fact is somewhat interesting slightly. What it's interesting? That's order of getting in hand.

Because of the virus, opportunity to go out decreased these 2 years. Oppositely opportunity to spend time at home and take photos at home increased. I mean the telephoto lenses are easier to use than the wide lenses taking photos of something at home. Unless your house is so big. The minimum focal length is as well as that.

Opportunity to go out that decreased because of the virus, will increase again before long. Shortly. It's time to enjoy the wide lenses outside. That can be why now I bought the wide one.

I hope it'll be like that sooner.
