I am settling the lens selection for my new (to me) Rm3di. Wonderful that I can now move lenses back and forth between the 3di and Monolith rail camera. That's the reason I sold the Alpa (sob) and the flexibility is working out as I had hoped.
Anyway, my present range is 70 - 210 mm. I need one quite wide lens in R mount and am trying to pick between the 32 and 40mm HR. I had the 40 previously, and liked it. On the other hand, why shift if you don't have to and the 32 would certainly help there.
I see lots of discussion of the 32, but wonder if experienced shooters end up feeling it is worth the trouble, what with the weight, filter troubles, fragility, and so forth. IOW, is shooting with the 32 rewarding enough to justify the hassle? Using the 40 is pretty simple, in comparison.
