I am going to Japan for the Sakura in March then extended trips to other Asian countries. I sometimes question if I am short changing the image quality by using old (>50 yrs old) lenses. My Leica lenses are
1. New Summarit 50 mm
2. >50 yr old Elmarit 28 I used with my M3 before
3. a $250 >50 yr old from ebay Elmarit 90 mm
3. a > 50 yr old Heklar 135 I used with my m3
5. a new Voigtlander CV 15 III
My back up camera is a Sony A7r with 16-35 mm, a 55 mm and 55-210 (cropped sensor Tele) plus an adapter to use all the M lenses.
is there a reason to buy a newer coded lenses say a 28 mm or a 21mm?
here is a sample of the 28 mm image:
from the $250 90 mm
