People who like Leica Super-Angulon 21/3.4 probably also like Leica Elmarit 28/2.8 v1 because they have similar features. I even suspect that the designers of Elmarit 28 v1 refer to the design concept of Schneider Super-Angulon. These lenses protrude a lot into the body blocks the metering on any M. They also have the same hood and rear cap. (BTW)They have similar color contrasts. Luckily this 28mm lens doesn’t suffer from fringe color shifts on digital M cameras.
28mm On the Street
The photo you get from 28mm lenses gives viewers the impression that they’re right there on the street. For many years, iPhones have been equipped with 28mm lenses. The Elmarit 28/2.8 V1 is great for street photography, using zone focusing you don’t have to worry about focus. It captures a wide perspective but it’s not to the point where you can see visible distortion.
