Showing 1-9 of 9
4 May 2014
Excerpt: I have an M6 and at this point I have only been using the less expensive Voightlander glass. On a whim I busted out the credit card and bought this and the 35 (crazy I know). The short summary is I have since sold all my Voigt glass and I couldn't be happier.
Excerpt: Absolutely pin sharp lens, from corner to corner.Great compact size. The only negatives are from the removable lens hood - it intrudes into the viewfinder image and it makes access to the aperture ring slightly awkward.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Sharp And Contrasty
Summary: i have been using it for less than 1 month, i shoot with an M8 . i use the 35/1.4 asph as well and used the 50/1.4 asph+ the 75/2.5. i like this tiny lense very much as it is sharp ,flare &distorsion free and is very light ( 180 gr) only, it does not block the viewfinder the only thing i miss...
Pros: light, sharp, flare free, distortion free ( even at 2.8)
Excerpt: Excellent for landscape photography or other areas where a wide angle with a wide depth of field are required. Light weight ( but solid construction) make it ideal for a trek through the woods. Not a bargain by any means, but a decent lens that satisfies 50% of my photographic needs.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
Summary: This is a superb lens that is well thought-out and produces excellent results.
Pros: Lighter and more compact than the previous (E49) version. Very sharp and contrasty even at full aperture. Clip-on shade has a snap-in cap. Ergonomic thumb tab for focusing. Shade has an an offset mount so you can only put on one way (with the cut-away in the proper position for the viewfinder). C...
Summary: One of leica's very best lenses. If you do not need a wider aperture, and there are few occasions when anything wider than f2.8 is really necessary, then this lens is perfect. The current version is much better than the previous version.
Pros: Very high level of sharpness, resolution and contrast across the whole frame right to the corners and at every aperture., Very compact even with lens hood permanently attached. Accurate depth of field markings. Nice bokeh., Can see the framelines with 0.72 ( just) and 0.58 viewfinder bodies.
Summary: I have replaced the release three of the Elmarit 28, by the last release. The last Elmarit 28 is more compact and sharper wide open than the previous model. It is very handy on the M6 and pleasant to use.
Pros: Sharpness, even at the widest aperture., Colour rendition and resistance to flare., mechanical quality is outstanding., I have never seen distorstion, even at the closest distance.
Cons: None. Todays summicron 28 offers the same quality from f2 for the same volume, but for a much higher price. Should you not need f2, do not hesitate for this Elmarit.
Conclusion: Det har ju funnits ett antal olika versioner av denna 28:a.
Jag har haft en 28 från 90-talet. (Misstänker att det var den näst sista versionen?)
Kostade ny då c:a 7-8000:-
Men fanns ju såklart som begagnad till ett lägre pris.
Och den var bra!
mycket låg distortion, och bra skärpa.
Pros: Liten, kompakt "normal"-vidvinkel till Leica M
Cons: Som vanligt då det gäller Leica så kan man ju tycka saker om priset, men slå ut priset på en 10-15 år, så blir det inte så mycket...
