Re: A gear question: Summicron 28mm ASPH

I don't see any red coloring on M9 with 28/2. My copy of the lens is less than two years old and I am using the latest M9 firmware.

The lens is sharp even at f/2, but the performance further improves, especially in the corners, if you stop down to 4 or 5.6. The lens shows very saturated and well separated colors. It has relatively large lens hood, that obscures part of the viewfinder. I tried shooting without it, but I noticed some flare/glare and put it back on. Occasional traces of CA on higher contrast edges.

If the blockage of the VF does not bother you, highly recommended.
