ho, what an assessment! I wish you much joy with the GXR M!
Recently I bought a Sony A7, main reason was to see my many old lenses perform on a medium the size they had been designed for. The A7 has 2 more advantages which sometimes let me choose it over the GXR M, high ISO performance and that one can close focus RF lenses using a helicoid adapter. It's also faster in opration. Other than that I prefer the GXR M, it's use and the photos it takes. One important thing people who only have been using Sony mirrorless are not aware of, the GXR's focus peaking is much better and can be relied on.

the Canon LTM 2/35 is famed for reasons, amazing very small lens, two more taken with it

Superb colours! They don't look too "digital", unlike my Sony A5100, which is what made me buy a GXR again (had one a couple of years ago). The A5100 is great for certain subjects and looks -- and video, especially -- but for personal photography I think I'd rather have a GXR. Probably the only thing that would have made it better would be a CCD sensor (you get stuck at 800, but then I was shooting a Digilux 2 with max 400 ISO for years before I could finally afford a "real" Leica!).

Maybe it's just my eyes or monitor or combination of both, but Canon LTM lenses seem to work particularly well with the GXR. Apart from Kuuan's, I have also seen memorable samples from Canon 50mm 1.5 LTM. But that 35mm 2.0 is tiny! And I like the SLR-type focusing ring.

My GXR has finally arrived, secondhand but in almost new condition. It has a C Sonnar mated to it right now, and I'll see if it doesn't rain this weekend to go and grab some samples. This thread is one of the best on RFF.

It would be great for your Rollei/Zeiss lenses as well as M's.
The Full frame Sony would still be better since you have the M9 for wide angle.

I owned both the Zeiss 35mm f1.4 and 85mmf1.4.
It's a shame to crop them on an aps or m43 sensor.

I agree with you, Andy. One day, I need to buy a Leica Mxx body or a Sony FF body. These two Zeiss lenses are worth the investment. Amedeo is working on a custom adapter for me for the Zeiss 50/1.4 to M. If he can then also create an adapter for the 35/1.4 and the 85/1.4, that would be awesome (and money saving for me), but it could be that the 50 is best suited for an adapter.

thank you Wenge I have read and had been told again and again that the CV 4/25 is meant to be used stopped down, maybe this has been one reason why I have enjoyed to use it wide open
