Hi, I am in the fortunate position of travelling to South Africa (near Cape Town). Photography is not the purpose of the trip but it would be ‘rude’ not to take a camera. I have a cl, which I am excited about. It is a recent purchase with the kit 18mm lens. It replaces my Fuji x100t which I really enjoyed but I wanted to be able to change lens’ and I preferred the cl to Fuji x-pro 3. i just like having a camera in my jacket pocket, hence the 18mm. Physical, it makes the cl very similar to the X-100 series. Now for the questions: Is the 23 Summicron significantly better quality than the 18mm (I cant find the physical length lens so will pop into shop to see)? Is the APO-VARIO-ELMAR-TL 55-135MM considered to have a ‘good’ IQ? Should I be looking at other L-Mount lens? I have a SL2 and the 35mm Summicron, the 24-90 and an underused Sigma 14-24, but I would rather travel with something more compact and in line with the cl. The photography I like is mainly landscape but of course, a bit of street and social photography too. Thank you for your help in advance.
I'm going on a little vacation in two weeks. Might see a little bit of wildlife. Not that I want to be doing professional wildlife photography with the kinds of zoom lenses that entails, but I'd like something with much narrower field of view than my 23mm Summicron-T. Should I rent the Summarit-M 90mm or the APO-Vario-Elmar-T 55-135mm as a secondary lens? Anyone have experience using both? I tried the 55-135mm a few months ago and autofocus was so slow it was almost unusable (so might as well get the more compact manual focus M lens). But I haven't tried it with firmware 1.4.
