Nice kit. I highly recommend the CV 21 Skopar. Lovely little lens (emphasis on the 'little').

thanks, I'm regretting not buying your 21mm earlier this summer now

Heard it is not good with digital. Something about to close to the sensor?

yes, you get color-shifts in the corner with the M9, M240 and A7 series cameras.
Same with the Zeiss 21mm 4.5 version

Yup. Colour fringing.

But should be ok on taemo's M6 and/or M3.

I'am a new (proud) owner of Leica M. Canon lens are bargain vs. same Leica's lenses. I have no lens right now, but seriously i'am looking for a 35 mm. Any suggestions? Thanks!

CONGRATS!!!!!!

Leica glass is pricey but I doubt you will ever loose money on Leica lenses. In fact most only go up in value.

If you can afford it I would HIGHLY recommend a 35 Lux FLE. My lux FLE is sharper in the corners than the 35L is in the center and the rendering from the Leica lens smokes the 35L.

Thanks!
I was afraid to hear that answer :) Unfortunately, in this time, it's difficult to spend another 4000 euro's for a lens.
I find in my area, 3 lenses Leica's 35mm: 35 Summilux old version 1100 euro, 35 Summicron ASPH GREY ONE 1500 euro and 35/2.8 summarit like new 800 eur.
Next days ill try to shoot few pictures with all of them.

I have a good bud that has the cron and loves it, It's smaller than the lux and a great lens.

Zeiss just made a 35 1.4 in m mount! Or you could get zeiss 35 f/2 or voigtlander 35 f/1.2 II ( I love mine). Much cheaper options to the leica lenses.

I like Zeiss 35/2 on Canon, very very much. Should be a good option also for M240, thanks!

The original 35 'Lux is a love-it-or-hate-it lens. It's soft and dreamy wide open, which again you either love or hate. I personally think it is a lens with a lot of character, and looks terrific on film. On digital, I'd want something a bit crisper.

The 35 Cron ASPH is awesome; the polar opposite of the 35 'Lux. Sharp and contrasty, and perfectly suited to digital. On film, I find it a bit sterile.

The Zeiss 35/2 is as good as the 35 Cron ASPH, for far less money. BUT...it's bigger and has a weird filter size. Also note that the ZE mount 35/2 is not the same formula as the ZM mount lens (Distagon vs. Biogon).

The other 35 I can highly recommend is the Canon 35/2 in LTM mount. Its only drawback is the 1m MFD, but other than that, it's a really sweet lens.

Edge100 how do you think the CV 35 1.4 compares to the older 35 luxes?

IIRC the Canon 35/2 LTM, W-Nikkor-C 35mm 1.8 are the same formula, likewise the 35mm 2.5 Skopar. If you're shooting M240 my buddy said that you should code them as 28 elmarit to fix the weird color fringes.

Sorry for intervention, I disliked CV 35 1.4 for specific distortions and weird, sometimes, bokeh. Using cheap, yet, neat and sharp Skopar PII version instead.

I went the other way.

The 35/2.5 is a great lens, but it's very...clean. It doesn't have a whole lot of character, which is, frankly, what I want in 35mm. I have MF and LF for the 'technically perfect' stuff, but in 35mm, I want some life in my images.

The 35/1.4 has character in spades.
