    Requests for Summarits

    I just sent a note to leica NJ to see if i can get my hands on some of the new Summarit lenses to test for the forum. Hopefully being a Leica beta tester they can send me something if they have some demo's available. Fingers crossed

    I see Mark Gowin just got a production 75mm Summarit to test. The lenses must be in NJ now.

    Has Sean Reid gotten one yet?

    Hi Rob,

    I'll be able to start testing all four later this week.

    Cheers,

    Sean

    Thanks Peter , i think leica was really thinking here although i did say they need a line of lenses like this a year ago . I am sure the did NOT listen to me. LOL

    But seriously what this does is get people in the door with coded ready to go lenses that perform very well at a very good Leica prices. 1500 is not that bad when you look at the rest of the line. The tough question is how they perform wide open. Obviously and we all know this is were Lux and Crons preform there best. So looking forward to trying these out. Personally i would think they will sell like hot cakes. ( famous american saying)

    Now they need to get busy on some serious fast wide angles and some extreme wide angles. Like a 12mm and 15mm
