Should I get the biogin 35mm f2.8, or Summarit 35mm f2.4 for my leica m240?
Asked by: Louis
Personally I would go with the Biogin just due to the fact I like the slightly higher contrast and reduced flare ability.

question

We know that the filter size for this lens is 43mm. But what is the exact size we should take into consideration when buying a lens hood for this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
The lens hood bayonet is outside the filter thread. In fact, I can easily put the notorious Zeiss lenscap on with the filter and hood mounted; the hood never leaves the lens.

question

Has anyone tried this lens on a Sony A6000? If so, any problems?
Asked by: Doug W.
