Re: A gear question: Summicron 28mm ASPH

I'd love to own this lens myself, the images it renders are beautiful, and the 28mm focal length is a very nice supplement to my 50 lux asph, much more so than a 35mm imho.

Sadly the 0.68x finder of the M9/MM/M-E/M10 makes composing with the 28mm extremely difficult / impossible if you wear glasses. The frame lines go all the way out to each corner of the viewfinder so you basically have to look around to compose properly. Because of this I find that I will have to get a 35mm instead of a 28 simply because composing with the 28mm is nearly impossible (I wear glasses as well).

I wish I could have my MM with a 0.58x finder instead!
