I had one of the first X 2 zoom lenses that Leica thought « acceptable » in
their eyes, it was called ANGENIEUX 35 x 2 f2.5 - Sold it a couple of years
back to a guy in Taiwan, but it is a lens I will ALWAYS remember as WOW - no
Canon, Nikon, Leica, Oly, Fuji ever matched its signature and bokeh, sorry for
me to say.
I also had the 70 x 3 of that brand - mine is. now in mainland China - which
immediately urged me to dump the leica equivalent I had, a b…y pump zoom that
never was sharp, just as other brands' were too. Minolta design???
OTT - Oly zooms of that era when not as good, far from it. And Canon and even
worse Nikon’s (distortion, vignetting, etc) where hopeless …
I won’t get into second to nth grade Tamron or Vivitar or Tokina’s territories
… horrible memories of these … BAD, no EXCUSE whatsoever :-(
