The Light Lens Lab Elcan 50 F2 lens and Canon 7sZ.

 I was in Toronto for a meeting at my condo thst got cancelled due to my paint contractor getting sick, not to waste a day, I decided to play tourist in the city and head to the Distillery District. I picked up at Canon 7sZ from my birth year and test the Elcan 50 f2 lens (in LTM mount) with colour film in this case, Gold 200. 

The Light Lens Lab Elcan 50 f2 lens (a bit of a mouthful), is a faithful copy of a 54 year old Leica Canada made lens that was coupled with a beefed up M-4 for a US Department of Defence contract specifically the US Army. The KE-7A as a set goes for a well equipped brand new VW Golf GTI, that is if you can find one. In the end, the Elcan 50 is a four element in four groups not of which are cemented, like civilian lenses. In the end the LHSA (Leica Historical/Hysterical Society of America) went gaga for this lens. In reality with lanthanite glass, we have a brand new 54 year old lens made with 21 century manufacturing techniques. 

Does it replace the 50 F2 Summicron? No, the LLL Elcan 50 F2, is a extremely well built budget alternative to a very rare lens, you can't get your hands on even if you had the money by someone who cares. The main competitor for the new Elcan 50 f2 is from Voigtlander in the classic Ultron line.
