    Leica Leitz Summicron-R 50mm F2 vs Leica Summicron-R 50mm F2

    Hi,

    I can't seem to find any comparison of these two Leicas so maybe you could help me with this?

    The newer one (made in Canada) seems a bit more expensive, but is it better than the older design Leitz one? Any thoughts which one would be better on a DSLR with an adapter?

    Many thanks,
    Klif570

    There is some information on these lenses in the Erwin Puts Leica Lens Compendium (a PDF version without the illustrations is now available online for free).

    Fantastic, didn't think it'd be so extensive. Cheers
