I love my Leica-R lenses on the D800E, and I'm looking for a few more. I would appreciate any feedback on the following:
- Elmarit-R 2.8/19: how difficult is it to shave the rear element to clear the D800E's mirror?
- Elmarit-R 2.8/28: will this lens work on the D800 without modification?
- Summicron-R 2/35: how does this lens compare to the Zeiss Distagon 2/35 ZF.2 at medium apertures (landscape work - I'm mostly interested in corner performance)?
- Which Leica-R standard zoom (i.e. wide to short tele) would you prefer for landscape work (mostly used at medium apertures)?
Edit: I should add...Show more →e
19 - modification more difficult than r35/1,4 but possible of course. I saw 2 option of modification: shave the protective ring only and shave both protective ring and rear lens body. Maybe for different cameras. D800 need more cut than D700 for example, it have larger frame around mirror a bit. So I guess need second option of modification. Be careful please, need the good protect against brass shaving and the rear lens not plane, it's spherical
28 - no need any modification and for landscapes this is greatest option, not summicron 35
Regarding zoom - maybe better 35-70/4? I know guy who shoting with this lens and D800e and he have very good opinion about it.
