By RoriboI have bought my first Leica T. It is nu first endeavour in the Leica system. It was a demo model in mint condition with alle accessoires and box. Just not a lens.
I am wondering how to best the Leica experience for the least amount of money.
So I have found a few options from cheap to more expensive:
1. Adapt my existing Nikon D glass with a lens adapter
2. Buy a 50mm Summicron F2 lens and an adapter.
3. Buy a new Sigma 45mm f2.8
4. Buy a new Leica 18mm f/2.8
If money was no object I'd would have liked the 23mm f/2. Alas that is not the case. So any advice would be much apreciated, about the above options and getting the best Leica colour and pop experience.
By Big JohnHi all,
Often read discussions about which is the best 35mm M mount lens with debates comparing the Zeiss distagon 35/1.4 against the 35 Summilux FLE Asph.
Comparing the lenses to each other is fine but I don’t read much about whether the combination of Leica glass and Leica camera/sensor is an optimal pairing yielding special results. I am shooting the distagon on an SL and wonder, for example, if I would get greater micro contrast with an Lux FLE.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

Book is in excellent used condition. Like new, with very minor indentations on a couple corners (see photos) - it came that way when I bought it new.

By HarpomaticHi, this is my first post. I would appreciate some advice: I'm about to leave for almost a month, going to Bolivia for a leisure trip. I won't be alone, so it's not a trip focusing on photography, but I will definitely use my camera as much as possible.
I have a passion for street and documentary style, a little portrait, environmental and not, but I definitely don't disdain landscape!
I use a M240: first of all, I'm a 50mm man - that will be the main lens for me. I'm still trying to decide which between the Nokton 50mm 1.2 or the Planar ZM 50mm f2 - lightness or speed? I might go for speed, that Nokton is not that big at all! And a pleasure to use. The other lens I already decided about is the Biogon 21mm f2 ZM, great wide angle; that will definitely be in my bag.
Two doubts: 90mm Tele-Elmarit thin or 135mm Tele-Elmar? if I go light, will I miss the reach? I really enjoy shooting both, and both don't see use too often. But I don't mind a little more weight if necessary.
Second doubt: should I take my 35mm? I have a wonderful Biogon 35mm f2 ZM but I fear it would see almost no use...although I think i interiors it might be more useful than the 50mm when shooting people!
What are your thoughts?
Thanks in advance!!
By Keith1974I am interested I purchasing my first Leica and have my
eye on a T body which I can get for a reasonable price.
The lenses are rather expensive and currently out of my budget.
Would you be able to recommend alternative lenses or ways to use lenses on the T for someone on a budget?
