Leica M7, 28 Summicron, TMax 400
Just curious, but have you also used the latest Elmarit 28mm?
How does it compare with the Summicron? Any noticeable difference in contrast / sharpness...?
I'm asking because while it is very easy to find a used Elmarit in good shape, the Summicron is just too new.
Trying to keep my budget down but don't want to make a huge sacrifice in quality (For example I own the 90mm Elmarit which I personally believe is outstanding in terms of its image quality).
Thanks for any feedback,
I had a third gen 28 Elmarit briefly before the Summicron. I think both lenses are excellent in terms of image quality. I got the Summicron for its extra stop. You will not be disappointed with either lenses.
Thanks Simon for the feedback.
I just realised that you are from Hong Kong.
Was there for a week last year in October for business. I went on the trip with no special idea to buy a Leica, but then fell for the M7 (Basically because body is so much cheaper vs. what it costs in France = 3250 euros !!!).
A changed man now as I sold all my Nikon gear and fully appreciate the Leica.
