    Talking I joined the club...!

    Finally I joined the "28mm Summicron" Club!

    I found a used one on ffordes.com for 1265,- pounds which is around 1700,- dollars. Most go for 2000 and up.

    First shot with it today, a colleague of mine.
    Not the most artistic shot

    Congratulations! Excellent choice. It was my first leica lens and it convinced me almost immediately that the price was worth it. You managed a very good deal! Best of luck and happy 28-cron-ing.

    Very nice. I keep telling myself that my elmarit-asph is enough but forums make that difficult to believe. Have fun with it!

    According to Ken Rockwell, the 28mm f2.8 Asph has less distortion than the 28mm f2.0 Asph. Is this correct? I ask because there is one more day left for the $300 rebate (saw it on www.bhphoto.com), and the 28mm f2.8 is at a relatively good price for a new lens, speaking Leica-wise. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Here are the relevant quotes and some pictures with this lens:

    Ken Rockwell isn't the most reputable reviewer on the net, IMHO.

    I haven't seen it yet what he says.
    I have had the 28mm elmarit asph too, and found it too harsh, the bokeh wasn't good either. But it was sharp and small.

    You could check Reid Reviews, he did a comparison on all 28's for Leica.

    The best 28mm on the market is the cron ,bar none. Seriously it is just that simple. The 28 cron was and is my favorite Leica M lens
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
