I've looked for a thread on this topic but can't find one. My recent thread asking to pick one lens for the M9 resulted in a clear preference for the 50 lux (35 chron and lux were also popular). I was a bit surprised not to see recommendations for other brands for the 50.
I'm sure there are many, many 50's out there. I have "focused" on the Leica lux, Zeiss ZM 1.5, and Voigtlander 1.5. Both the others are a fraction of the price of the Leica. The Zeiss is smaller and lighter, the CV is lighter. Nocti is too big and expensive, so not much interest there for me.
I'm looking at information as to how these lenses compare on an M9 (or M8). There must be reasons that everyone suggested Leicas, but I would like to read specific comments. Smaller, lighter, and cheaper are all positive qualities. But tell me the rest of the story.
BTW, I'm thinking of getting a silver lux at a good price. Tell me, how do silver lenses look on black bodies?
