  • That's a wise decision. It's most probably the best lens in that price range. Regards, Thomas
  • When buying such old gear a trustworthy vendor is very important. I've therefore bought my old Leitz lenses mostly at the Leicashop.com or comparable vendors. That's maybe not the cheapest option ...
  • As already stated in an earlier post, the M39 versions offer more flexibility and in the end you can always add a cheap M-adapter and leave it on the lens. But there is no way to do it the other ...
  • In 50mm I own several different RF lenses but not the Zeiss one. I've bought all of them second hand much below the price of the ZM lens. I have an old Leitz Summicron F2, a Voigtländer Nokton F1.5 ...
  • From my personal experience I think it will take longer than 8 days. Sometimes it takes much longer. Maybe you select an UK based Ebay seller if the local prices are too high. Usually postage from ...
  • IMHO the GXR body and the SD card is responsible for the writing speed and not the module. Maybe you should try a faster card? Furthermore I don't think that shooting in snap-focus stile with a ...
  • Good choice. The CV 25mm/F4 is a very nice lens and pocketable as well. I like it very much. I have a lot of M39 to Leica-M adapters from China as a leave them always on the lens. I bought them ...
  • I bought my second unit in brand new condition here: http://stores.ebay.de/upgrademonkey-worldwide?_trksid=p2047675.l2563 It's a reliable seller and everything (incl. shipping to Europe) was fine.
  • Well Tom, that's certainly true. We all have different preferences and I'm glad that you found your way out which suits best to your needs. I have also stopped buying lenses as I have already a ...
  • Tom, based on your recommendation I bought the Clearviewer (premium lens, tripod mount version) a couple of years ago. However, I only see it as valid alternative to the VF-2 when I need the ...
  • My strategy is simple: I have a GXR-body, a M-module and a VF-2 as unused spare items to extend the life span of my GXR-M system. However, if I really would have to change my system in the unknown ...
  • Bear in mind that the Ultron 28mm/F2 is still a huge and heavy lens although it's slightly smaller than my 28mm/F1.9 version. That's the reason why my 28mm Ultron stays mostly at home and I rather ...
  • The Jupiter-12 35mm/F2.8 in M39 may be a good start. It can be found for below Euro 100,- and is stunningly good. A short M39 distance ring was used for this example shot at F2.8:
  • I have most of the Russian RF-lenses as well. Especially the Jupiter-11 135mm/F4 is really excellent. I've recently done a comparison between all of my lenses in 135mm focal length (total 10 ...
  • The Leitz Elmarit 90mm/F2.8 in M-mount or in M39 (1st version 1959-74) can be found used starting from Euro 200,- which i consider as a bargain. I like it very much:
  • An overall score of only 2.5 stars is slightly underrated for my taste as the achievable picture quality is rather excellent. I only have to admit that the auto focus is rather slow, even with the ...
  • I finally ended up with M39/LTM RF-lenses from 12 to 280mm. ;-)
  • Having the P10, GR28mm, GR50mm and Mount modules since several years now I can tell you that I ended up in using primarily my Mount modules with different RF-lenses. The P10 is limited due to it's ...
  • Well, that's the reason why my DSLRs stay mostly at home. The GXR-M with small RF-lenses is nicely portable and therefore my no. 1 choice for excursions. Some spare lenses fit even in my jeans ...
  • Congratulation for your GXR. I've bought my second A12/Mount module copy from Upgrademonkey. Everything was fine. So I can recommend this seller. I would also suggest to look for the EVF (VF-2). ...
