Re: The trick is to remember

For everyone else a fast zoom, starting at 2.8, is really 3.5 because 2.8 is mediocre. For Leica, an f3.5-5.6 lens should be superb at 3.5. Is it worth it?  Well the value is in the eye of the beholder.  Leica can argue that the value proposition comes in the size, compared to a similar lens starting at 2.8.  But then again, Leica doesn't need to argue about value. As I wrote, they are their own distinct market; not to mention a rare European manufacturing success story.
