They might both be for sale once I test my D800 with the ZF.2 35/1.4 But yes, the 35 Lux-R is a fantastic lens, very moody, and centrally very sharp even wide open. My main issue with it is that all my other most used lenses are ZF.2, and the Lux, like many Leicas, focuses a little stiff, has no EXIF, and has focusing the opposite direction to Nikon. Oh, and stop-down metering. For someone who uses other Leicas regularly it would be a great addition.
Focus direction, well that has much to do with Nikon copying Zeiss Ikon and Canon copying Leica. So, for Nikon users it is easier to use Zeiss lenses and for Canon users to use Leica lenses.
well the new zeiss lenses for canon and the old c/y lenses focus the same direction as canon. it's really just nikon and pentax that insist on being difficult.
I forgot that the new Zeiss lenses made in the new mounts focus in the same direction as the camera makers.
