Cool shot, Michael! It would be interesting to compare the Canon 35/2 against the Cron V1. The image quality from the Canon somewhat surprised me, though the build quality is definitely below that of Leica, Zeiss ZM, older Nikkor RF...
Joe, the Sonnar looks great!
Scott, I haven't seen much from the 35/1.7 and will be interested in what you create with it.
Hilmar - wow - great write-up and images in the full gallery on your site! I saw some of these on your Flickr and love the B&W of the giraffes. I completely agree about how with the 'wider' lenses you've shown a lot more of the environment, rather than the standard long telephoto 'portraits' that are so popular with many wildlife photographers. Might be worth stopping in at the Lumas gallery beside the Leica Store to inquire whether they might be interested? There's at least one other photographer from Munich I follow on Flickr who has done this...
While heading home from trying out the lenses last night, I noticed the neat look of the clouds against the sky (most evident in the last image below). It didn't last that long, so only managed to work it with this location... but for some reason, I really like this garage (and have photographed it and possibly posted it here in the past):
First two with the Canon 35/2. Maybe could have used the 28 Cron instead because I'm torn between showing more sidewalk/road or showing more sky. Maybe a blend of the two in Photoshop?
