To kick start 2021 I thought of asking everyone here what will you be using this year as your main gear. What are your top 1~3 lenses that you’ll be sticking with?

I finally came to the conclusion I am a 50mm guy, so I will be mostly using:

1) Summicron Rigid 50mm (my favorite Leica lens) attached to my M3

2) Elmar 50mm f3.5 attached to my M9M 

3) Summaron 35mm f2.8 Goggled version for when I wanna shoot street / do zone focusing / do close(r) focusing

And here’s a shot of my M9M and Elmar (my number 1 spot is now being CLA’d so can’t share). I am using the Flashback Camera hood that allows to change the aperture easily with the hood / filter, making this lens much easier to use. 

Feel free to share your picks  & inspire others!
Happy 2021 everyone!

I'm coming to a similar conclusion about the 50mm focal length, although I shot almost exclusively with a 35mm for the last three years. 

In 2021 I expect to primarily use my Summicron 50/2 v5 (got my eye out for a nice Rigid as well) and the 28mm Elmarit ASPH, when I can get back to some street shooting.

Glad to see a rigid summicron and goggled summaron on your list!

I predict my top 3 lenses for 2021 will be:

1. Summicron Rigid 50mm

2. Elmarit v1 (Wetzlar) 28mm

3. Summilux ASPH 35mm 

and possibly Summaron 35mm f/2.8 goggled on the M3

I am a 50mm guy too. 2021 will be 100% black and white film for me.

1 Rigid Summicron 50

2 summilux 50 pre-asph

3 summilux 35 pre-asph 

Happy new year everyone 🥳

I have number 2 and 3, and could have lived happily with just them!

I also have their modern counterparts, but they are just complementary additions.

😇 Happy (or sad) to say that as every other years, I don't have favorite lens (es).

To say it better, I use my lenses and bodies for what I've learned to use them, depending on subjects and situations.

 

So favorite(s) of the year mean nothing for me.

M9 c/w 21SEM, 35/1.4 and 90/2.8 - as ever - great combination which will cover a LOT!
