X2 or lens for the M240?

I am about to buy a M240 and will get the 50mm summicron. My question is should I keep my x2 or sell it and get a wide angle lens for the 240?

I am not a pro, just a hobbyist.

Thanks

Ted

Hi Ted,

First of all I do not think (unfortunately) that you can sell your X2 and get a Leica wide angle lens, unless if it is used and then maybe not... You can definitely get a Zeiss or Voigtlander though.

Also, do you need the autofocus? And are you happy with the 35mm fov or do you need wider?

Best, D

We are terrible enablers.  You NEED both.
