Using the 50mm Sonnar and M9

I'm having a lot of fun using the Zeiss C-Sonnar 50mm f1.5 ZM lens on the M9.

I tried a few shots while shooting the dancer last week. I don't find them real sharp wide open and up close but love the look once you stop down to f4. The lens has a great look to it. This was shot at f2. It's a jpeg right out of the camera, nothing done to it.
I also took the lens to Haiti for my shoot there. Stopped down it makes a nice landscape lens, although I think the Planar 50 f2 would be better in this situation.

If you're looking for a 50mm lens for your rangefinder, I have the 50mm Planar in stock right now. The Sonnar is on backorder.
