This subject may have been discussed before but I struggled to find a thread.
I am looking at investing in a fast 35mm or 50mm lens (summilux range). I have yes been bitten by the Leica bug so I am at this stage only considering Leica however happy to have peoples views if they have used other lenses and can compare them to Leica.
I have the 75mm and 28mm f2 Summicron in my kit and a 50mm f0.95 M converted Canon. The later is hard to use and focus and more a hobby lens.
I am torn between were I invest the next $ and wanted some views as to which lens would be more useful the 35mm or 50mm. Also how do people find the 50mm pre asph. I hear its a beautiful lens and very sharp too. I do like shooting in close so short distance focusing is important to me.
The difference in price is approx $2000. The 50mm 1.4 ASPH is $4,500 (AU) and $2,500 (AU) for pre-asph... $2000 can go a long way to maybe even invest in a 2nd M8 body (or upgrade current body with new upgrades) so the pre-asph is looking like a good option.
Thanks for listening and for any feedback.
