need suggestion: whether to buy GXR M mount
Jul 10, 2012

Dear all,

I am shooting film with my leica M system, but sometimes scanning is time-demanding. Also, I just use 35mm f2.8 and 50mm f2.8 as my taking lens, I need a wide-angle lens (21mm, 24mm, 25mm) for land-scape shooting.

So, I am considering to buy a GXR M mount module set + VF2 + Voigtlander 15mm f4.5. The price is ~$1500. On the other hand, I can buy an excellent condition second-hand leica 21mm for wide-angle with roughly the same price, but then I need keep shooting film...

Could you please give me some comments about the choice?
1. GXR + Voigtlander 15mm (digitalized my leica M system)
2. Leica 21mm f3.4 (keep shooting film)

Howie
