Leica 28mm Elmarit-R f/2.8 35mm Primes
Submitted by Simon Coates a Expert from Stokesley, North Yorkshire England, UK

Strengths: Optical perfection
This is the best wide angle lens I have ever used. Optically, it is pin sharp from f/2.8 to f/22; at f/2.8 it is sharper than the Minolta at any aperture. It does not display any distortion or flare, even with strong sunlight directly in front of the lens!
It feels very well balanced on the camera (R6.2).
The adage 'you get what you pay for' has never been truer!
