On my walk last Saturday, I found swapping lenses to be a bit limiting at times. Usually an animal or person moment missed because the 25mm was on the camera. For much of what I shoot, a zoom works nicely - does so on the X Vario, a camera I still love. So I did a bit of research. The Leica 28-70mm R f3.5-4.3 has mixed reviews, with many saying the 35-70mm f3.5 has better performance. The 28-70mm F2.8 Leica with superb performance is apparently a very big lens, something I'm not too keen on. So I'm going to give the 35-70mm a try, it will be here in the next few days. For my purposes, 35mm is not too bad for many wider-angle shots. I'll definitely keep the 25mm Biogon along for the wider shots, but my guess is the 35-70mm will cover enough range to be on the camera for most of the time. I'll post my findings, and post shots with it. Has anyone else had experience with this lens? Guessing little, as it's not rangefinder coupled. Not a limiter on the M 240 with focus peaking, however.
