    WTB: 35 summilux, black case, etc. (I'm expecting!...)

    .... my first M8 (and RF) that is!

    So, I am looking for
    1. Black 35 Summilux ASPH to get started
    2. Black case - Luigi vs Zhou vs ?

    Any other accessory suggestions? I know there are many - but any really useful ones?

    Thank you!

    I suggest a Thumbs Up CSEP-1 or EP-1 from matchtechnical.com (Tim Isaac's website). Make sure your Luigi case has a cut out for the grip.

    A softie release (Tim Isaac makes these, as do many others) may help as well.

    I also employ the M8/9 grip....

    quite frequently, a 35mm summilux asph would appear... maybe because the new comes came out and some say current version has focus issues but i cant comment since i dont have it. if you do the research, im sure you'll decided accordingly.

    forget the case, go naked. i agree on thumbs UP.

    I have a titanium I am going to sell. Beautiful shape but not black it is 6 bit coded and no focus issues. Box case all that stuff. Good Luck David great lens.

    Edmund,

    You may want to consider a 28mm Summicron instead. I and many others found it to be the ideal replacement for the 35 on full frame. I hardly used my 35 Lux on the M8 and used the 28mm 90% of the time. I now use the 35 Lux 90% of the time on the M9 and the 28 hardly at all (and no I'm not selling it).

    Just something to consider. The 35 is a great lesn though and you can't go wrong with it either. Good luck!

    Shiro - I cant wait to get the M8 out! ....
    Charles - Good advice... Ill be on the look out. That is precisely what I was using on my Nikon D80 - actually my favorite is the Sigma 1.4 30mm.

    How about some Leica 28mm alternatives? Like the Voigtlander Ultron?

    Your photos are amazing by the way!
