Then you are depriving yourself of great lenses like the 100mm Apo Macro, which in
my view is reason enough to get into Leica SLR. So the 35-50mm 2.8 is too
expensive, big deal--I have the 4/35-70mm which is also excellent, costs much
less, and thanks to the bright viewfinder of the R8 does not feel too slow.
