Yeah, that video was one of the first things I saw that convinced me leica was the way to go.

I don't actually have any leica lenses, but I think I'll be getting my first soon from work, a 35 summilux FLE :woot:.

And this is what justifies the price. I was similarly sold on Lee filters after watching them being handmade too.

^ Lee filters are great, I just can't justify the cost for myself... :(

I know it's off topic but any thoughts on Cokin filters?

Optically they're all about the same, but the Cokin coatings aren't quite on par with say Hoya or B+W. Hoya is best value, B+W is just best. The coatings are what really make a good filter.


So I got my first piece of leica glass.
