Hi!

I'm unable to decide what to use as a base 35mm lens for my M10R.
The CV Nokton 35/1.2 III is a great glass, but I find it quite heavy and big for everyday use.
Is the Ultron 35/1.7 (despite its terrible ergonomics) still a reasonable option after all these years?
Has anyone decided between these options?
Thank you very much for any opinions or advice!

What do you shoot primarily/intended use? Have owned both several times. The CV 35/1.7 is a better all-arounder with better resolution across the frame WO and superb flare resistance. The 35/1.2iii is really only worth it if you shoot WO or close to WO often, need it for low light or the softer smoother rendering.

The new CV 35/1.5 is a marriage of both, with great size and ergo and price.

With Leica I mainly document my family and everyday life. I try to keep my camera with me all the time and that's why the dimensions are important for me. But I don't want to completely resign to the quality of the output and if necessary I am willing to accept a compromise in the form of higher weight and dimensions.
Do you think the new CV35/1.5 is generally better option than the Ultron? Or is there any aspect, where Ultron is a better performer?
Thanks for your experience!

The new 35 1.5 (type 1 especially) is my standard mounted lens, but I loved the CV 35 f2 apo on the M10R, as I thought the crispness and colors were just about perfect soon. The Apo is only a little bit smaller than the 35 1.2 iii though, while the 35 1.5 is significantly so.

I would still recommend the 35 1.5 overall
