Re: Leica or Carl Zeiss Lenses?

I agree the Zeiss 21 2.8 ZM is great. The Planar 50 is also very good. Though I sold off the Zeiss 50 to help fund a Summilux, I think I'll never sell the 21mm.

One relatively minor thing I've personally noted (and admired) that I don't see written is the starburst-like diffractive effect on the Zeiss is a very nice effect that generally is not seen as much when using Leica lenses (though I guess this is just personal taste). For night shots, this effect give a nice 'sparkle' that is unquely Zeiss.

Michael.
