  1. Vox populi, vox Dei..... Oddly the other lens I think I might pick up is the Sigma 65mm. A documentary bag with M + 35 and SL2 24-90 or 65mm could be quite flexible. Anyway: time to use them!
  2. Update... I've gone for a used 24-90, which came out as cheaper than a new 24-70 (the Leica version anyway!) I will try and post some pictures! Thank you all for your kind and excellent advice.
  3. Great stuff. And as you say, it's a really great camera. As soon as I work out how to post pictures properly I'll share some tests with 24-90 and 75.
  4. Thank you so much, very useful and interesting points. I would be using the SL system as something complimentary and practical, just as you say. I've sold off all my DSLR gear but not my M. I love that camera and way of shooting more than anything (even more than the Pentax 67 which still makes me smile whenever I pick it up, the great leviathan) And I've just been offered a used 24-90 for what seems a stupidly good price so am tempted to get it, use it and if in 6 months/year it falls out of usefulness I'll sell it on with any small loss as 'rental'....
  5. Thanks so much for these excellent replies! As people have said, guess it comes down to duplicating my usual kit (the M with 35 and an "SLR" with 24/85) or going for an M and then the SL with a zoom. So.... Having read all your brilliant notes I did a test run this weekend thanks to a Leica store.... 24-90 and 75 SL. They are seriously good aren't they....
  6. This is really interesting, thank you so much. That's the other real possibility: the sigma 24 and I was thinking perhaps an M 75 (rather than the 90, which is an interesting choice and I'll read up on it now!) for the SL....
  7. Thank you so much everyone for such detailed and brilliant replies: so useful and welcome.
  8. Thank you so much, that's incredibly kind! Truth is an enormous amount of stuff was with the 35 FLE. It largely lives (and still does) on the M. Had it since 2013, and although he aperture ring is loose and it's lost some paint it's an absolute belter that I can't face parting with for service! Before that I used the 35mm Summaron 2.8, which in a quite different way is completely superb. Wish I could have afforded to keep both..... Drop me a DM (do they do those here?) and I can happily send examples etc.
  9. Firstly, thank you so much for all the useful and interesting things on this forum, which I have been learning from. I wondered whether members might offer some advice. I've just dumped my Nikon DSLR gear and moved to the SL2s. I'm primarily an M shooter however, and I suspect 80% of my work is done with an M and 35mm lens. I do documentary work primarily. You can see the sort of things here: www.jamesphillips.net I used the Nikon for wider than 28 and longer than 50. So I now have a gap in my kit at the wide end and the long end, which was in my Nikon days fill
