Encouraged by some of my tests with the Leica M240 in the summer, I decided to be bold and mount the infamous Serenar 135mm F4 on the Leica IIIC and walk down the streets of Singapore.
Nothing is perfect but I managed to nail a few decent shots (below) and miss a few more. The combo Leicaiii+serenar is very nice and shiny, maybe a bit too much, and a bit on the heavy side. The rangefinder works fine, which is a nice surprise. Apart from not being very well considered as a lens in general, my copy has a few issue, a bit of haze on one of the elements and also some internal painting is peeling.
It is very nice to have models on the street at your disposal….
for all tastes, for boys and for girls,
Nothing beats a little nap really.
This guys paints with his feet and is able to do so even when taking very acrobatic positions. Unfortunately I cannot really tell what’s on the banner.
