Summarit-M F2.5 Question
Dec 2, 2012

Hi,

I am thinking about getting a Leica, I would like the Monochrome version but financial reality suggests that a second hand M8 is more than likely so I've been refreshing my memory by reading up on lenses.

I notice that Ken Rockwell in his Leica column pretty much rubbish's the Summarit-M range, now I've been thinking about Leica's since around 1959 and I have never know Leitz to make a mistake, except perhaps with the filter on the M8, and one or two strange (to me) decisions, so it surprises me that the Summarit's are deemed to be inferior products.

Ok so they are not that fast but for what I do F2.5 is plenty.

Thank you.
