    What about the new ZM lens that was announced in 2012?
    Will it be there finally? I need something to feed my Leica M (240)!

      Dear Joerg!
      We are sorry not to be able to provide you with any news at the moment, please have some more patience. We will give you an update as soon as possible.
      Best regards

  2. Usually I would say the 15mm ZE however as this is not a lens I personally own (I rent it when required) I would have to say the 50mm 1.4 (an amazing standard focal range lens, which keeps surprising me - this is my goto lens)

    Another close contender is the 18mm which is really growing on me... Used to find the lens a bit soft and a bit too wide for me, however these days it's my favourite wide angle lens - I love the true colour rendition and high contrast in the details I can capture with this lens)

    Uhmmm... Cannot wait to see the OTUS range at Photokina this year (feel free to let me know if you have a spare 55mm/85mm which I can play with during the weekend of the 20-21/9 :-) I will happily babysit them in my hotel just opposite the Expo :-)
