I already have the kit lenses and SAL18200 for my NEX5, and I will probably continue to invest in the E-mount system. However, I want to get one fast Leica MF lens for playing around. I doubt that I will ever be able to afford the Noct, but maybe the Summilux is in my range.
Which focal length would you recommend? 35mm or 50mm? The question may be too broad, but I am looking a length that's general enough for me to keep for life. Is the floating element really worth it? How much difference will I see between the ASPH and pre-ASPH? What's realistic around $3000 range? Maybe the prices are inflated lately, so I could wait a year or so to buy the right lens, once supply catches up, so I'm looking at retail prices, not ebay prices.
