I am considering buying an R7, and I want to know what 50mm f/2 Summicron would take best advantage of the camera's functionality. Would it be an E55, a Leitz Canada 3-cam, or a ROM lens? To clarify, I want a lens that will take advantage of what the R7 can do, but not one that has features the camera will NOT support, so e.g. if a ROM lens will do this or that but the camera will not then I don't want to pay extra for a ROM lens when a plain old 3-cam would do the trick.
Hi there.... I have 2 R lenses - Elmarit R 2.8/35 & Summicron 2/50 and would like to use these on a digital body with the appropriate adaptor. I'm resigned to the fact that Leica doesn't see fit to offer a solution - there must be many enthusiasts in this position. Have looked at Lumix G1, Olympus Pen as small bodies (not bulky DSLR) with recognised quality. My question is regarding the manual features of these lenses on new 'Auto/Manual' digitals. For example - focusing - does the camera recognise the lens focus? or is it all guesswork? The speed/aperture - does the lens change the camera or does the user change the change the camera to match the lens, or the lens to match the camera etc etc. Any assistance appreciated as it seems impossible to match R lenses with M cameras so I have to look elsewhere - bugger! thanks in advance!
