Hi Ken,

I have one that's had the spotting corrected and it is stellar.  I can't

compare it to the Leica, as I've never had one, but the lens produces
nice images.  I never liked using anything wider than 35mm on an SLR (I
the Nikkor 24mm which I haven't used in years), but I keep the 28mm on
my M5 
most of the time.


I never cared for the 28mm focal length either. Then I bought a Konica
M-Hexanon 28mm lens. It too has rarely left my M5 since. If you run
across one in your 28mm quest it deserves consideration. In my very
biased opinion.

Good luck!
