Upload & Sell: Off
Guys thanks for the encouragement and tips!
Jam - I've used the 21ZE and I felt it was the best wide I've ever used.. The 21 SEM seems to have a very similar feel to me, and really for the size it's a lot more practical of a lens to just toss in a pocket when going out (assuming you're wearing a coat with decent pockets). I read this forum backwards, and noticed a few of you were looking for the 21 SEM, I'm very tempted to sell (trying to minimize my dependency, and stress with Leica these days).. Or was, until I started thinking about my shots, and until I went into my office and looked over some of my old 21 ZE shots vs my new 21 SEM shots from Australia, NZ, California... And now I'm thinking I might just keep it, simply because it is such an awesome lens for the size!
Color wise and other, IMHO it has the 21 ZM beat (both versions).. The 21ZE again is really just to heavy/big to compare, as I found myself leaving it at home and ultimately missing shots. But IQ wise, I like them both.
The other lens I feel complements the look, is the 28elmarit-asph, so if you wanted something less wide, it's a great lens as well...
And recently I've discovered that the Sony Alpha (a99) system is pretty fantastic, so much so that I bought all the primes and all the zooms that Zeiss makes for the system, and 3 bodies (replacing my professional Nikon kit with Sony). I really like the 24 ZA, it has the same feel to me as the 21ZE and 21 SEM. But again, same thing, for the size of the a99/24ZA I'd probably leave it at home, which is really where the 28elmarit-asph and 21SEM shine!
