Allen, is this the one you're talking about?

Yes its sharper at the edges than any of the Canon or Nikon 50mm are at the center.

This would be the lens to use. ;)

That's a very nice lens, and probably first on my purchase list should I get a Leica (or a future full-frame Sony mirrorless camera with 36+ megapixels). But it's not 12mm...

Wish they'd make a retrofocus version, though, for better performance on full-frame digital sensors. Or that someone - anyone - would make a no-compromises 12mm full-frame lens.

The Zeiss 15mm Distagon is nice optically and has great build quality, but the fixed lens shade ruins it.

The Tri-Elmar would be the best option since it can take filters.

Yep, but I'd also want something wider.

16mm is relatively narrow by my standards - a good proportion of my shots are wider.

The sensor is manufactured by TrueSense imaging, the leftovers of Kodak's sensor manufacturing business.

Negative they still make the M9/M-E sensor but not the new LEICA M sensor. The LEICA M is not CCD its a CMOS sensor.

$1 per ISO point.

Leica is fast becoming a value product! :D


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!
