When I visited the Leica Store in Amsterdam two weeks ago, while I was doing a workshop with Asim, Hans (store-chief-master-guy) showed me a Leica Summilux-M 24/1.4 APSH occasion lens. While I normally only buy second hand if the original product can no longer be bought new, this time I made an exception. The lens has quite some wear on the metal, but the glass is pristine. The wear however makes the price tag interesting and while I wouldn’t spend 7+ K on a fast 24, this offer was just too good not to take.
I’ll use it for group shots on weddings where the light is dim, probably also for the kiss moment during the ceremony where I don’t have much room, but it will also feature as a cinematic interview lens on our Sony FS5.
And lastly, this lens SHINES on the Leica M8.
Have a great weekend!
