I'd like to hear some input as well.

Are there any 21mm Super Elmar users that have also used the ZF/ZE Zeiss 21mm Distagon?
How would you compare the two?

Zf.2 21mm has been my favorite lens, so I am intrigued by 21mm SEM.

I have had the ZE 21 Distagon with the 5DII, and it is an amazing lens. Very high micro contrast with quite a funky bokeh. Excellent landscape lens.

The 21 SEM has much better roll off and excellent bokeh too. With the M240, I would definitely prefer the 21 SEM, for image rendering, roll off and bokeh. The sharpness of the 21 SEM is also amazing with the M240. I feel the best advantage is the size and weight of the lens makes it for a very unobtrusive setup

How are you liking the 21SEM Charles? I'm looking to add a 21mm and at the moment I'm steering towards the 2.8 ZM because of the MFD and presumably better perspective control.

The 21 SEM is an amazing lens! It is relatively cost effective, and the lens works great. For traveling it is very light, and you don't even notice the lens. Yes I understand the MFD, may not suit, and with the respect to perspective control, a lot of this is easily adjusted in Lr For me, I purchased the lens, second hand, and it was very cost effective, as I had no intention of buying a 21, as I already have the 24 Lux. I did not realize how much I would use the 21 SEM, until my last trip to Bali.

I also owned the ZF21 for my D700 and it was my favorite landscape lens by far. It has some mild mustache distortion but I very rarely even noticed it. I thought it would be near impossible to find similar performance in an M mount lens until I bought the 21SEM. My unbiased opinion is that the 21SEM is perhaps one of the all time best performing wide angle lenses available in any mount. I feel it produces slightly sharper files (compared to ZF21) which look natural without being overly constrasty. Images are sharp to the corners right from wide open onwards. Very flare resistant, small, and zero distortion whatsoever. It is almost always in my bag when I go travelling and I tend to use it far more than I thought I would. Out of all the Leica lenses I own, the 21SEM I could not live without.

You guys are making it hard for me to not want the 21 SEM . I'm just a bit bummed about the 0.7m MFD, I know it sounds trivial but that extra 20cm really makes a big difference in versatility for me.

Yeah - I guess the MFD could be an issue for some but I have not found it to be limiting for my shooting.

Thanks Charles and Gary for sharing your observations/experiences with 21SEM. I think I will have to give it a try. Did you consider 18 SEM and why did you pick 21?

Nice rendering with the Nikkor, Paul. The bench shot is really funky

Joanlv, I really miss the close focus abilities since I started shooting RF. Nice shot.

Based on your output, I certainly agree, those banff shots are breath taking.
Great shots! Everyone.
I haven't post much here recently.
Here are two from last weekend from Disney.

Both by 50lux ASPH WO

Really nice shot's Michael. The pics have such a good "feel" to them…

While we are talking about the 21SEM - how about one more shot? Sorry Rocky and Jawad for pushing you closer to a possible purchase….

EDIT - this was actually with the 35cron....

Thank you all for comments and 'like', I appreciate

Gary, another beautiful shot!
Katie, nice one!

Here are few more from Disney. I took three lens with M9 with me but use 50lux only in the end, though I didn't take many shots this time.

All 50lux ASPH, all WO
