I just ordered this lens, the mfd photos posted by @lifeandmylens@@@@ pushed me over the edge. Had a zeiss 35 distagon. really loved that lens but im looking forward to the much closer focusing...and more compact size. will report back with some images.

In the same Distagon boat - looking for a more compact 35mm, testing if the change is worth the extra $$$.

The lens got here 2 days ago, I made a video on it. I don't know how to upload pics here yet. Hopefully a youtube link allowed here

mainly just highlighting the difference between 40cm vs 70cm. It looks like optically the lens is the same as the previous 35 summilux so there's plenty of info out there on colors etc.

In a nutshell, if you want to be able to focus closer get the new leica. There were many occasions with my zeiss that I had to get up out of my chair to take the picture I wanted. I don't see that being an obstacle anymore.

Also I brought the 35 distagon and 75 summarit on a trip to miami. The photos looked noticeably different when changing lenses at the same scene. maybe that'll play a role in your decision.

I've had 4 voightlanders, 2 zeiss and 2 leica lenses. After all those I only have 2 leica lenses left. The voightlanders all underwhelmed me. The zeiss distagon was my favorite of the non leica glass. the biogon was great too but 2.8 wasn't fast enough imo. just my 2 cents.

I got so used to the zeiss, that this summilux almost feels too small. On paper it doesnt seem much smaller but in hand it's a big difference. I got used to the momentum of the zeiss when handling my camera. it's gone with the summilux. almost feels like there's no lens on the camera.

I plan on just keeping the summilux on my m11, so I wanted all the features

haven't had enough time to really test it yet but I'll line a model up soon and do a proper shoot soon. I've actually got a shoot in a few hours I'll bring it to, but it's just studio so that's not very exciting. I have an on location gig sunday that might be cool.


Cool video! Where did you get that skin for your M11? I had one like that for my Xpro3, but that seller does not offer for Leicas. TY!

thank you, It's an alpha guard skin. really good quality, I vouch for it


I got the matrix black one
