    TRI-ELMAR-M ASPH. f/4/28-35-50 mm

    Currently I have a M6 with 28mm Elmarit-M

    When I move to 8x10 Large Format, I'd still like a system for street photography. I was thinking of selling the 28mm and getting the tri-elmar.
    I'm curious to know if anyone here has experience with this lens. How far off is the quality from the fixed lenses?

    Thanks!

    Sean,

    I can't say it matches the fixed foucs lenses at the corners, but for a good , overall travel lens that is very, VERY good, it's a great option. The cons are only the legendary high cost of Leica........

    Cheers
