Subject: [Leica] 35mm SUMMILUX-M
Date: 21 Jun 99 19:17:07 MDT

I recently purchased a 35mm Summilux-M. It is probably one of the last
produced since it was manufactured in Germany. The serial number is 360xxx.
All the info I see on this lens says the closest focus distance is 3.3 feet.
However the one I have focuses to 3 feet. Does anyone know if there were
changes when Leica started making this lens in Germany rather than Canada? Any
thoughts in general about the 35mm Summilux-M? Has anyone used this lens and
the 35 Summilux-M ASPH? If so,  would you say the improvement is major at the
apertures from 2.0? Thanks. Please respond to my e-mail:
