| p.1 #4 · p.1 #4 · Leica Elmarit-R 90mm F/2.8 E-55 used on Canon - What do you think? |
I like it. Most of my Alt glass is Zeiss, Pentax, and Mamiya 645, but I've kept the Summicron-R 50/2 and Elmarit-R 90/2.8 E55, for that occasional dose of magic that makes me like a Leica.
The 90/2.8 is very sharp at f/8 and near infinity, which is where I'm most likely to use it. For portraits, I'd prefer to use the Summicron-R 90/2 over the Elmarit.
How is the 90mm Elmarit-R F/2.8 in comparison to the 90mm Summicron-R APO F/2.ASPH? Besides being a lot more expensive, I've been doing a lot of reading where it's one of the top lenses ever made. The ones leading up to the ASPH were pretty good as well and can be had at KEH for around $200-$500 (they had a 15% off sale today as well), but the ASPH wasn't available and when I look on ebay, it's a crazy fortune, around $3K - $5. Out of my league, but maybe one day it will fall inline(?).
Is the one you have in your belief nearly as good as the ASPH? Do you know how it would be different? Or is it a lot of unnecessary hype?
