The Leica 60mm Macro-Elmarit-R f/2.8 lens I picked up from Ken Hansen late last year has quickly become my favorite walk around lens when I shoot my Leica R4s MOD-P, Leica R5 or Leica R6 bodies. The 60mm focal length is close enough to a 50 to make it a nice normal lens. It’s pretty fast at f/2.8, not overly large or heavy and having macro capability gives me the option to get in and up close on interesting subjects I come across.
Here are some shots from a recent photo walk I took with my Leica R6 in St. Helena, CA. I shot Kodak’s Portra 400 film and overexposed by a stop.
Of course, there is always the mirror selfie at the end of the roll so I can remember which camera I was using at the time.
