Advice on choosing my first M-lens
Jan 27, 2010

I'm a newbie and have just acquired a mint M8. I don't know much about the Leica M-lenses except that they're supposed to be of excellent quality.

I was thinking of getting an Elmarit-M 28mm 2.8 to start with, but when I searched the internet, I found out that there are so many versions available - the newest ones are the ASPH type. Some prefer version 4 over the older versions, some say the current ASPH version is best.

I'm confused.

Pls. anyone with firsthand experiences on these lenses, could you comment on this? Any suggestions on alternative first lense is also much appreciated.

Regards.
