The Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 ASPH is here!

I have a small update on my adventures with the Leica T (type 701). Yesterday I got the Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 after reading a couple of reviews. It’s not the most popular lens for the APS-C system, but the reason I bought it (without trying it first) is that I think it makes the T much, much more pocketable. Also, shooting M-lenses on the T is not that great, unless you have time. With the 18mm, I can fit the T in my cycling jersey back pocket, or in any other jacket.

Here's the T with the smallest M lens, the CV/21/4, attached with the original Leica adapter.

And here's the T with the Leica Elmarit-TL 18/2.8 ASPH lens. Much smaller and much lighter.
