As someone who loves the Leica Q series I expected to buy a 28mm for the Leica M10 Monochrom, it would be my go to street photography focal length. However when I traded for the M10-M it came with a 35mm lens, I then chose a 50mm over the 75mm and instead of the 28mm I opted for the the Leica 21mm Super-Elmarit f3.4, which gives me a 21-35-50 setup. All lenses take the E46 filters, so that’s handy.
It’s been a while since I shot this wide, I thought it could make for some striking street/city and live music shots – I look forward to when this will be possible.
We’ve had stormy weather these last couple of days, so I took it down to the local nature reserve to have a play. I like the layers in the first image below, and the second image is dark and moody and the focal length helps draw you in.
According to the lens scale, it seems you can hyperfocal at 3 metres using f5.6 and get from about 1.5 metres to infinity in focus. This could make for a nice hip-shooting lens!
