By Al BrownWhat are your cravings, needs, wishes and desires regarding M lenses that do not exist yet?
21mm Summicron? Perhaps a 24mm Summicron? A brand new and Karbe - updated 75mm f1.4 Summilux? A new line of affordable budget M lenses? Some vintage revivals?
Share your thoughts - within reason of course.
By Al BrownWe already have a very extensive 'Mandler Magic' topic, but as much I am keen on Mandler's signature look and his contribution to the "Leica glow", there is another very distinguished gentleman in the 'House of Leica' that as a leader of Leica's optical design team since 2002 gave us a bunch of new high performance M-Lenses and pushed the terms FLE, ASPH and APO towards modern Leica perfection. He was the guy that had the balls to say Dr. Mandler's 75mm Summilux 1.4 was his *least* favorite design and went on to "Make Summilux great again" - all the way down to 21mm.
Show us some of the "clinical look" of the Peter Karbe magic and do tell what lens he designed is your favorite...

By Herr BarnackHere's a question for M camera photographers (film or digital): If you were to choose to work with just one M lens, which would you choose and why?
Which focal length?
Which maximum aperture?
Is the one camera, one lens approach a valid approach or is it an unnecessary limitation?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this! 😉
By LanarkI just watched this video by Tony Northrup about full frame vs smaller lenses.
He makes some good points about the larger lenses collecting more light due to 'basic physics'
But this also has me wondering about M series lenses which traditionally have very good quality ratings despite their small size - where is the trade off?
I feel like I am missing something in the way that lens size applies to a rangefinder?
