I also agree that 24mm would be too similar to a 28mm. I think adding a 21mm to your kit would be a more "versatile" option.

Here's one from a while ago with the 21SEM. I'm planning to use this regularly on the M8 as a 28mm.

Thanks for the input guys!

I had the CV 21 ultron w/vf and did not like the focal length, never really was not that excited for my style of shooting, it sat in my closet for 2 months before I got rid of it. Maybe so, also I just never took the advantage of it, will have to re-think on the 21 or just take one out and force myself to use that lens only for the day.

I am really leaning towards the 24 3.8 elmar asph for it's great sharpness WO, contrast, and compact size, and lens filter size to accomadate many of my ND and colored filters I have now. Also with the very good high iso of the M and MM, I could use indoors in decent light, not candle light

Gary that 2nd shot is incredible, I bet it sounds amazing to be there!

Leon those colours are amazing with thw M8! Thats the reason why I love leica colors, thanks for sharing it, out of all the M's I have/had, the M8 creates the best preffered color tones for me, then the M9, after that the M

Thanks guys again

Phil

24 and 28 mm are probably to close but that kind of logic doesn't seem to apply to my buying decisions


.. .hard to apply "logic" to gear/hobby purchases but luckily lenses seem to hold their value especially if bought used, so Phil you might as well buy both 21SEM and 24Elmar and try them out.

Phil, there might be days where you want a 24, 35 and 50/75/90 as your 3 lens kit and other days where 21, 28 and 50/75 might be better

By the way, excellent shots from everyone, hard to catch up and apologize for not commenting individually.

Rocky - you may have seen this thread but it may come in handy with your M8...

I thought the idea of alt gear is to not shoot cannon

Phil -- I think the choice between 21 vs 24 will come down to what you shoot. Although they're just 3mm apart, I feel that 21 is where the "ultra" of "wide" really starts, where you have to start paying more attention to things like perspective, distortion, subject placement, etc.

Whereas 24 is still bordering at the edge of "wide" -- while there is still issues of perspective distortion to keep an eye out, it isn't as prominent and one could still use it for portraits if one is careful with it (e.g. sitting across the table at dinner).

Just messin' around with the el cheapo 50mm Jupiter f/1.5 lens. Perhaps the poorest built lens I have ever used but the results can actually be decent (considering it's price). I have seen a few good shots with this lens but they were all wide open in low light. I will have to give that a try…. It also produces some funky aquamarine color cast along the right edge of almost all images.

Two sunsets I shot recently, within a day of each other. Managed to get fairly wet on both occasions. Any preferences? Comments and critique are welcome as always.

2 - Leica M240 + 35mm Summilux f/1.4

Gary, 2nd and 3rd shot actually renders really nice and sharp, at least on the screen resolution. Long live the Sonnar!

Arka, I prefer composition on #1 but maybe with slightly less exposure on sky and more contrast overall? I do like the cloud formation on #2 though, beautiful.

Joe88, you're right. The sentiment is echoed by just about everyone who sees them. I was a bit taken with the brightness and thought I could get away with pushing the envelope there, but I think my laptop display was distorting how hot those center areas really are. Here are revised versions using highlight information from near brackets, or differentially exposed RAW files.

Arka I like the second one better, I feel it has nicer composition and I also like the reflections of the clouds.

Phil - yes, first shot WO.
Arka - I also like the second shot. With a little more selective PP, I think it could be really nice. The light and clouds look so good - great timing!

Nice shots with the jupiter 3 Gary. Can you counter that tinge with a gradient filter in post? From what I can remember I think that lens really excels around MFD for portraits.

I did not try to reduce it at all but will try the gradient filter when I manage to get some decent keepers. And yes, I have also seen some good portraits with the lens... My next step is to attempt to take it apart for a much needed re-lube...

Walking around City Center, Las Vegas early Sunday afternoon. Leica M Monochrom, ISO320, Carl Zeiss C Sonnar with yellow filter. Aperture usually at either f/1.5 or f/8. As always, minimal post.

I love the dual nature of this lens. Wide-open it has bokeh like no other. Stopped down, it is almost as sharp from corner to corner as anything modern, better than some.
