Re: Leica or Carl Zeiss Lenses?

Actually, CZ lenses are not that cheap. I mean, price wise they are, but it comes at the expense of speed. The only true bargain in the Zeis ZM line-up is 2/35 (and somewhat 2/50). The rest are all f/2.8, and you don't want to know how much 1.4/24 would cost

I am purposefully leaving out 1.5/50 Sonnar, as this one stands in its own category: an excellent lens, which is very difficult to use.
