So far I like what I am getting with my M8. I suspect my itch will worsen until it is relieved by an M9, thus I want to consider lenses that I would likely keep if I take the aforementioned cure.
I am thinking about a portrait lens, thus 75 or 90mm. I am leaning towards 90mm as I think it will be usable on the 8, and more to my liking on a 9.
My thought at this point is to go for a 90mm Elmarit. I doubt I'd be interested in the cron as I don't believe the price to speed advantage is good, plus a bit deeper DOF will not be unappreciated. And I have seen comments preferring the Elmarit over the Summarit.
I know this is a bit ambiguous, since it implies 2 questions: which focal length/lens do you prefer? and which focal length/lens is best for me? Advise as you prefer on these questions.
And a last question: is there any advantage to a 6-bit coded lens at these focal lengths?
Share your preferences with me.
