David, Re: Best Leica lens for landscape?

David,

May I suggest you take a look at the pictures you've taken with your Nikkon gear and have a better idea of focal lengths for the lens/es used.

There were early reviews indicating that Nex 7 can have color shift/magenta cast for symmetric design RF lenses, e.g. ZM Biogons, many CV lenses, Leica compact lenses (28/2.8, 18/3.8, 24/3.8, 21/3.4), a problem which 5N/C3 don't have. Watch out.

Paul Richman (He has several posts here recently) just acquired the Nex 7 and Leica WATE (Tri-Elmar 16-18-21/4), and other Leica lenses. He seems to be very happy with the combo, but he hates the holes in the filter adapter. You can ask him for more details.

-Steven

I'm dumping my Nikon DSLR gear and buying a Sony nex 7. I shoot landscapes almost exclusively. What would be your choice for the best Leica lens. I can only afford one so I want to make the right choice because all their lens are expensive. Thanks.
