Hi all - haven't been very active on here - but promise some images soon! Anyway to the point - I've been really happy with my used T camera purchased in April but have mostly been using for images of my ceramic work that I make. I have been using the Voigtlander 35 1.4 Nokton Classic and also the Leica Elmarit-M 90 2.8, with some excellent results. However after a trip to Greece this summer felt that I am really missing the wide angle end of the scale! My budget isn't overflowing, but interested in what you all felt I should save up for - How does the original Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 fair on the APSC sensor? Reviews of it on FF were pretty bad! I am going on a trip to India/Nepal next Easter and would like something for all of those sweeping landscapes I am expecting to see, as well as lots of crowded city shots! HELP PS I am damn impressed with the T - I know I am a couple of steps behind their current offering but it has proved itself to be a wonderful little thing!
With the launch of the TL2 and the CL this year, Leica has boldly put its weight behind its APSC systems. The cameras look and feel great, though they would undoubtedly benefit from a richer selection of fast lenses to partner with. Personally, I see the TL / CL cameras filling an important void for M shooters. With rangefinders, lengths between 24-50mm tend to hit the sweet spot, and while the fast telephoto lenses render beautifully, manual focusing a 90mm Summicron on a rangefinder for candid street or action is borderline masochistic. In this respect, it would be great to see TL Summicron or Summarit prime equivalents of either the 75, 90, or 135 focal lengths, all with fast auto focus. I know we have the 55mm - 135mm zoom, but F 4.5 is not workable in low light, and the 60mm F2.8 Macro, while gorgeous, is a little too slow to auto focus. I would love to know what other people want to see on the TL lens roadmap. Let us build a little public pressure to ensure that these smart systems get the lenses they deserve.
