Re: Got the lens just now....
In reply to Paul Richman, Jan 12, 2012


I have no real experience using R lenses. In the past, I have looked, in vane, for some R for my Canon EOS.

Leica Rs are great lenses, no doubt, whether made by Leica or outsourced (to Minolta, Sigma, Kyocera). For wide zoom, the 21-35/3.5-4Asph, and for medium zoom, the 28-90/2.8-4.5Asph, are popular (both Made in Germany), which I considered seriously; but too pricy and I opted out. Oh, Asph, oh, APO. The 35-70/4 is very small, light, and affordable.

Enjoy your toys, and have a great trip, my friend.

... I think I might like it. It's not too big or heavy, even with the Novoflex R adapter on my Nex. However, it did not come with the E60 screw in hood, and I can's find one anywhere. Do you know where I might get one?

Again, thanks for this idea! I will now test the lens for IQ.
