    This is an exceptionally superb Leica zoom lens and the quality is as good as a Leica Prime lens of any focal length. The optical performance compared to other zooms of the same length is beyond comparison. The snag is that it weighs almost 2 kgs. It is best used on a tripod or with a camera shoulder stock ( as shown in pic ). The optical performance at full aperture is brilliant and the optimal performance is at f4. There is a slight fall off till f8.

    I used this lens with the DMR in Pacu Jawi last year.

    I am going to the next Pacu Jawi. But, I am going to use this lens with Canon 5D Mk2.

    Manual focussing must've been hard! Exceptionally sharp.

      Manual focussing is a pre-requisite if you a Leica user, be it a rangefinder or a DSLR. You will be surprised that it is sometimes a faster workflow.

            Yep, I saw one some time ago at Keat. You must have paid 50% cheaper what I paid for in 1997. It's a great lens.....I am now comparing the output between DMR and Canon 5DMk2.

                  You'd need another 100L drybox
