Knuckledragger Posted March 4 Author Report Share Posted March 4 TBH, even by Leica standards the Sumilux glass is completely not worth it. Ignoring the massive cost difference for a second, the F/2 Summicron versions are a fraction of the size and weight of their F/1.4 brethren. Heavy lenses get old quickly, especially when attached to otherwise lightweight camera bodies. The 50mm F/2 Summicron is a "bargain" by Leica standards (even moreso on the used market.) The Leica 35mm F/2 is possibly the best camera lens in the world for actually taking photos. The only photographer I've ever known personally who shot Leica used a M6 (late 80s serial IIRC) with a 35mm Summicron. He joked that the "swappable glass" part was optional. He used that combination long into the digital era. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
