Subject: [Leica] Zeiss Normal 50mm f/2 Planar T* ZM

While I have only held the subject lens and not actually shot with it, I 
have found the Cosina Zeiss offerings a bit lacking  in quality and overall 
feel.  I am in the minority here on the LUG as most like them.  I prefer the 
50/2 Summicron, which I have and like very much.
