    Nah... it's the 28-70 which is far less special than that zoom. But, Hell, I got it from KEH for like $650 and it's producing some REALLY nice images. It has zero CA, really good sharpness and only a little distortion at the wider end of the range. Now that I've got the 35/50/80 Summilux R's, I should see how it compares ;)

    This is my current Leica M set up, and actually just purchasing an other exact set, so I have two of each for a two camera set up... ;)

    Leica - 21mm f/1.4 Summilux-M Aspherical Lens
    Leica - 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M Aspherical Lens
    Leica - 50mm f/1.4 Summilux M Aspherical Lens
    Leica - 90mm f/2.0 APO Summicron M Aspherical Lens
    Leica - 135mm f/3.4 APO Telyt M Lens

    But lets wait for final LIST form Jarred... ;)
    Heh I have a similar set except I went Super-Elmar on my 21 - though its a shame that 21 + 35 can't be used on the M mount - heck if they could...the images would just be...well, words can't express how awesome it would be...

    Have you ever used an M lens? Are you aware of the cost of the set you are proposing?
    M lenses are designed for Leica's rangefinder cameras, they are very small and not ideal for cinematography.

    AFAIK, no M-mount lens under 50mm will work on the Epic. Even some 50mm will not work, like my beautiful older Summicron 50mm (two range).

    Someone from RED stated that the main reason to build this adapter was the 50mm Noctilux…

    I second that the M-lenses are great lenses, but in general not perfect for cinematography. They are too small and it's difficult to attach any FF or even pull focus by hand.

    If you want Leica glass, go for R-lenses (and have them cinefied by Duclos). But hurry, with the new M-adapter by Leica they are in high demand again and harder to find by the day.
    Regards,

    Uli

    My Red is called Vertov after a Russian avantgarde filmmaker, a pioneer in modern cinematography, a true revolutionary who later suffered under Stalin's bureaucracy.
