Does anyone in this thread has any experience with the Leica Vario-Elmar-R 21-35/3,5-4 ASPH? I'm primarily interested in it for landscape so the fact that it is a little slow doesn't bother me.
For Nikon User, I will recommend 14-24 16-35 over this. For the price and performance ratio. But for A7/R, I like this one for its very small size and real aperture .
It is a great lens after 28mm, and excellent lens after 24mm. at 21mm with 6D, I have to stop down to f11 and focus by corner to have cross frame sharpness. It has very strong FC, so I will not recommend it for M240 with its limited LV implementation.
Flare is so so, but the 14-24 Nikon I had also having flare problem which 21 Biogon ZM has non.
I found for zoom like this, I used 21mm more than 50%, it is a pity it doesn't have great performance at its 28~35mm setting.
Some samples from it with 6D, most at 21mm end. Only really used it twice so far. I put high hope using this on A7R. The lens is useless if not use EVF or LV for its slow speed.
Larger size this time, hopefully, don't get complain.
BTW, I never consider myself critical enough to give thorough evaluation about lens performance. After certain threshold, I no longer care much about sharpness, sharper? of course better and more exciting. This lens seems meet my requirement I wish it offer more coverage. consider all Canikony will have something like 14-24, 16-35 range are more useful.
