I've a few questions about the MATE, and hoping some of you can help. It would be for use on the M240 and MM.
It seems like a good 'travel' lens; it would be about 300g lighter than my combination of 28/35/50 lenses together. Weight is a significant issue for me, as I have neck problems. But is it a 'jack of all trades and master of none'?
I'm not concerned about the maximum aperture, more about performance and reliability. I've read that the mechanics can be a bit weak; is this correct?
Is there a difference between the E55 and E49 versions? I gather the optics are the same, what about the mechanicals?
And, is the convenience worth it over three (modest) primes?
