85mm/90mm
Mar 17, 2013

I was looking for a Leica Elmarit 90mm f/2.8, or maybe the Summicron-M f/2 since they are around the same price, then I got a pretty decent offer on a Nikon 85mm 1.4AIS in mint condition.

I have not shot with any of these lenses. I read the Elmarit is top notch, even better than the Summicron as long as you don't mind giving up that 1 stop, and that the Nikon 85mm AIS is supposed to be "legendary", but do you guys have experience with these on the GXR enough to help me make up my mind?
