    Yes, the 28mm f/2 is a “magical” lens, I have the ZF version and love it.

    So I ended up buying a Leica R Summicron 50mm after talking with Peter from RP Lens. It's a 3XXXXXX serial, which I understand are the better of the series. I haven't had a chance to work with them, and there aren't many cinematographers in my area that might have one to rent/borrow. I should have it by early next week, so we'll see how I like it. If it's good, I'll send it off for a cine-mod. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there was something about the Zeiss that I couldn't jive with. They look like great lenses, but it wasn't the flavor I was after.

    Good,choice, Leica lenses are very nice, and would be my first choice outside the 28mm f/2 Zeiss.

    I'm starting to drive myself nuts because it has a 32xxxxx serial, and I'm second guessing whether I should've looked a bit longer for something over 34xxxxx. Ah well.
