This is the best Leica lens that I have ever owned. It is surprisingly small, compact and light, and offers three different wide-angle focal lengths. No more huge piece of glass to haul around.
This is not a lens for every day use, nor should it be one of the first Leica M lenses that you buy. However, it does have some very good applications. Uses: I find it impressive for in close(not close-up) photography.
for some reason I use this lens at 16mm most of the time and wonder why I simply didn't buy a wide angle lens to begin with. I am new to leica glass, I have a 50mm 1.4 and a 90mm 2.0 and have the new 35mm on order. For landscape and for interesting perspectives I love this wide angle lens.
The last time I saw an M lens this wide it cost $15,000used, thanks to collectors, so try to consider this abargain This lens on a M8 has put my Canon IDs with 24tilt-shift and the 16-35 on the shelf. It has also made meponder if I really still need my M 21mm 2.8 anymore.
