Now most of the set should be clear to me:
12 + 21 + 35....
Now i like the fingerprint of the 50lux (and i use it often alone or tegether with the 35), and still I have a nice 90 f2.8 ... Maybe i should buy the 75cron as my "tele" (foollowing your suggestions), and leave both at home?....Another dilemma
By the way, thank to you all guys, (lovely series Jonathan), this forum looks like really something useful and pleasant!
After years of using only a Fujica GS-645S (my Canon F1n and lenses sitting idle) the thought of using only 1 lens was absolutely natural.
I now have a CV15, which I use second. After that comes a CV 35 2.5 and a CV 50 2.5; both purchased to see what I thought about having multiple lenses. (not really a joke, but sounds like one!)
You know what? 99% of the time my CV 25 is on the camera. Sometimes I have to leave it at home to force myself to use another lens.
There really is something in the thought that you should simplify and get down to the real basics to get good photographs. It's tough; we all have GAS when it comes to shiny camera bits.

Any doubts on a Leica 21mm could end right here
But there is no shame in owning a CV12mm. I love this little gem
Better bring your shorts and a cooler pack for you neck. I'm not joking could be as high as 120 degrees at the bottom. This is not the place you really want to be in July . It's hot here.
I truly wanted it, and now I don't regret the choice!
Still another amazing shot Guy, i really like your work!
Probably I'm directed towards a 12-21-35-75...
I've got only one problem: find a nice and cheap 75cron.
I'd love the 75summarit too, but since it hasn't a collapsible hood the lens leave me somehow stuck in the middle with the decision.
I know that you split the 90cronA with the new 90summarit, and i really appreciated your tests, but how you feel with the "absence" of a telescopic hood?
I know that focus is really easier with the new 90 (compared to the AA), is there the same difference between 75's?
Great combination. I did take photos of all the 75mm's in the M forum on my test of the 3 75mm's . Let me see if I can find it. On my 90 summarit I just bought a metal hoofd and screwed it on and left it alone no caps. Which you can do also with the 75 summarit and even leica sells a hood with a cap to go with it . Pretty cool idea from leica.
Okay found the shots of the 75mm
Here is the Leica lens hood with cap for it
Nice thing about this is the filter is inside the hood
Faster than Light... i think i'm gonna give some work to my Leica dealer tomorrow... I could be lucky enough to find both Summarit and Summicron 75.. just to know how "I feel " with 'em...Here in Italy we say, it's a matter of skin!
Monsoon season. Great lightning storms bring a rain coat. LOL
coded (as what?) + UV/IR
uncoded and without UV/IR
uncoded +UV/IR (and maybe cornerfix?)?
I can't seem to find my right way.
I did get the better results with the lens uncoded and without UV/IR, because i find the cornerfix correction's gonna change too much the blue channel, shifting it to a lighter-cyanish form...
I'm hung up!
I don't filter or code the CV 12 at all. When "the purple ir fabric" hits, I just serlectively de-saturate the color.
same for me . No code or filter. I will switch to Zeiss if i need IR filter
I don't bother using filters because the in-camera correction for cyan corners is not enough and I don't use cornerfix. So since I don't filter, and I don't find the lens vignetting objectionable, I don't bother coding either.
well, here are two more.
these are the VVG mod to Jamie's profiles. MORE than enough opportunity for magenta
now you see why I just don't use the filters
BTW, the adjustment for the Tux kept the tie and c-bund the right red!
