Pros: Cheap, great bokeh, light, no distortion, very light
Cons: long, soft (not always a bad thing)
This is usually the cheapest ever Leica lens you can get. Mine is used with a 39mm mount on a GF-1 and can get some great results as long as you aren't expecting sharpness at any aperture! This is a people lens, not for wildlife and for landscape when you want a dreamy quality. It is not a telephoto lens in the correct meaning of the term as it has the aperture exactly 135mm from the focus plain. This makes for a long lens, but does mean no distortion at all. Straight lines are straight with this thing.... It has a tripod fix, but this is a screw built directly into the bottom of the lens barrel and can cause damage to the lens, it is so light that mounting the camera to the tripod rather than the lens may be a better idea, even with the fragile m 4:3's mounts of the Lumix. On a windy day however this means the lens bounces up and down and a fast shutter speed may be required. Altogether a great bit of glass for little money and it is nice to own a genuine Leica.
