Can`t believe the cost of Leica lenses
5 months ago

Once upon a time I used Leica lenses on film cameras, they were expensive but very good. I`m using the x pro 1 with various Fuji lenses but two lenses stand out from the crowd ( 14mm 2.8 and 35mm 1.4) You`d have to spend in excess of £5k for the Leica equivalents.

The Fuji 14 f2.8 is around £570 after cashback and the 35 1.4 was free after purchasing the x pro 1. after using these lenses for a while now I have to say that they are not only built superbly but are a very close match for the Leica equivalents.

The Fuji system must really be hurting Leica, even the die hard Leica fanboys are switching over. Just think what a decent Leica digital system would cost you now!!! £15K for a body and maybe three lens system:-(

I feel so much better now that I've given up Hope
