I started loving Leica rangefinders about 12 years ago, and once I really started understanding the system I realized I like to shoot with a 35mm lens. I just liked the amount of image I could capture with that focal length, and when I had bought my first pre-asph cron I noticed that I never needed another lens. It stayed on my M6 at all times and that was that. Its a decade later and at some point through college that camera system was sold due to being broke in college (in part due to that camera). I can finally own and actuall afford a Leica now so I got an M6 again and am looking to buy a 35mm lens. I have always been told and have read about the incredible ASPH 35mm LUX and now have the opportunity to purchase a black one used for $2k. My reason for posting is this: Is that a good price? With lenses like the Voigtlander f1.4 and f1.2 out is the LUX still the BEST on the market, and if you could buy a used LUX ASPH for $2k or a new Voigtlander for far less, what would you do? I have read some of the threads out there stating and showing the Voigtlander lens performance as quite impressive. Any thoughts would be appreciated. For clarification this is not the 6-bit version. Can someone also explain if that makes a huge difference in price. I am assuming I can still use it on the M8 if I ever buy one.
