    24mm f/3.8 Elmar - opinions?

    Couple of quick questions - who's got the 24mm f/3.8 Elmar and using it with an M9? Any red edge issues with the current firmware? Do you find that you can frame it accurately without an external viewfinder?

    I have and though I cannot focus precisely but by guesswork I love the quality of the images I get. Don't feel need for add on viewfinder.

    The lens is wonderful:

    incredibly sharp (has the MTF of a short tele!), little distortion, focuses easily and accurately on my M9, is compact, and does not need a separate finder (the whole rangefinder on the M9 effectively covers what the lens covers (and besides, unlike with film, you can chimp you image and re-shoot).
