- introduction -
i'm quite new to this and caught the Leica virus already.
Shooting for many years as a freelance photographer with a dslr (Canon and only L lenses) I always wanted a Leica M and shoot with film for my personal work. And my dream came true as I bought a 2nd hand mint M6 6 months ago. Meanwhile I've added the Summilux 50 and the summicron 90 (all chrome pre owned/asph) which I love.
Now I'm still missing a nice wide angle. My local camerashop has bought a stock of brand new Zeiss Biogon 28 F2.8 and sales them for 500EUR, which is a great price. (Normal around 900EUR).
Now my question is how does these compare to the latest Leica elmarit 28 asph? Which is much more expensive (1400EUR). I can cough up the money but is it really much better than the Zeiss or are they almost equal? Have anybody of you had personal experience with the Zeiss? I mean it's ZEISS so how bad can it be?
I thought asking you some more experienced guys before I take the jump. Thanks!
