You got the 35/2.5 right?

Great choice. I've owned this lens myself and found it very sharp with nice oof rendering.

To me personally the choice between Zeiss, Leica, Voigtlander and the rest is not so much a matter of better, but of personal preference for particular charasteristics. For example the Voigtlander 35/2.5 is very sharp and very contrasty. A less contrasty lens will not be anything worse, just different.

Pity that Leica M lens prices have sky-rocketed. Long live digital mirrorless...

Well, one day the digital crowd (myself included) will start dumping these systems and their lenses again, in trade for something newer and 'better'. Prices for 30-year old optics can't be this consistently high, can they? Hm, perhaps they can
