Hello all - I have not been able to sit still for the five days since I received my new 21mm summilux. It is an incredible lens. I have, till now mostly used the 35mm summilux, which comes with a finger grip attached to the focus ring. This grip is very useful, as I am sure many 35mm summi users know, because it helps locate the focus setting on the lens without looking down or taking my eyes off the subject - by the time I bring the camera up to my eyes, my finger has done most of the 'thinking' and I'm almost at the focus point. It would be great if there was some way of attaching a similar finger grip to the 21mm summilux. Does anyone know of a way of modifying the lens, or any service out there that does this? I called Leica USA and did not have any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
At a local photo show today I managed to try all three new fast lenses. The Noctilux was a 'demo' lens and I was able to shoot at f/0.95 only. I simply tried all three from about the same place (1m in the case of the Nocti, 0.7m for the others) focused on the yellow dot on the binoculars, all wide open (I'm not sure that I nailed the Nocti focus!). This gives an indication of the depth of field at its least (wide open and closest focus) for anyone who is interested in these lenses. All felt very comfortabl and although heavy, still appeared smaller than nearest equivalent SLR lenses. I'd say any camera that they are mounted on would benefit from a handgrip (the 24 may not need this as much as the others). I thried the 21 at f/8 and it was capable of recording very fine detail indeed.
