Walking with my Leica Elmar 5cm f3.5 Lens

I has been raining over the last few weeks. Eventually a sunny day has arrived. I can bring some of my kits out to shoot around.

This Leica Elmar 5cm lens is tiny, handy and solid. In order to concentrate on shooting but not worrying what lens to use, I only brought it with my Fujifilm X-E1. The lens can retract safely into the camera body.

Yes, the camera sensor is safe.

The tree with red flowers like fire greeted me en-route.

At f5.6, every single leaf is sharp and crisp.

The floor is still wet.

Almost missed it. The rain has brought new life to a¬†gap on the wall. Even at f3.5, the image is crisp and sharp. Great works of the Fuji’s focus peaking.
