New lens in my bag: Leica-M Summicron 28 f2 ASPH

In my long process of chasing the perfection, or better, the ideal combination of camera and lenses for my travel photography, today I’ve added an important and crucial masterpiece: the Leica-M Summicron 28 f2 ASPH, replacing the Summicron 35mm f2 ASPH. Given that I’m a very happy Leica user, after my switch from the DSLR world, I’ve decided to sell the ‘cron 35mm and replace it with the ‘cron 28mm, bought from my favourite dealer Newoldcamera in Milan (thanks, Ryuichi!). If you may don’t know him yet, I can highly recommend you!

Why i’ve decided to get rid of the 35mm?

well, besides the fact that the lens hasn’t fully convinced me with its quality, I’ve also realised that 28mm is the focal length that is much closer to my “street view”, as it adds a bit more elements to the frame i shoot and it allows me to also do landscapes. Furthermore, as my plan is to have 3 lenses to cover all my needs, i find the 28-50-90mm more complete than 29-35-90mm. Usually, my travel photography is about landscapes/street (20mm) –  portraits (50, 90mm) – close-up/details. (90mm).

My perfect travel combo now includes: 

 

Now, let’s have a look what’s in the box…

    Un percorso sofferto il tuo, da convintissimo X-shooter (memorabile il tuo articolo: non torneró mai indietro) a Leica influencer.
    Insomma, pur di campare si vende ogni prodotto… In futuro pensi di passare a Nikon o Canon ?
