Subject: [Leica] ALERT- Actual Leica R lens question
Date: Mon, 2 Sep 2002 16:02:45 EDT

First off, I'd like to thank all of you who took the time to answer my 
question on the 135mm Leica R lens offerings.

My next question is slightly more nebulous, but for those that 
believe/understand my question, feel free to answer....

In the Leica M series, I have seen certain lens with what I'd call a certain 
signature look.  The 35mm pre-asph, the 50mm nocti (hold your tongue here 
BD), the 75mm lux.   I can't define what exactly the "look" is, some actually 
consider the look "flawed", but some of you might understand, and appreciate 
it as well.  (I particularly like how black and white film works with these 

So, my question is....what are the, if any, equivalents of these lenses in 
the Leica R lens line-up.  I'm not wanting a Leica vs. Japan argument, a 
dissertation on the origins of the word bokeh and how it relates to 
Mesopotamian slave castes in nazi owned factories that made tilley hats... 
I'm just curious about R lens line-up now that I have an R-7 (thank you
