This is more of a 'fun' lens than the primes, and it does have a certain look that gives me something different. Again, like the primes, there is a 'cool' colour balance and it has quite low contrast. Wide open there is a soft, 'dreamy' look which would be nice for a certain kind of portraiture. Its also such an odd zoom length, which does in fact cover the most popular focal lengths for portrait photography, that it makes me look at things in a different way. How much I'll use it I can't say, but at £35 I can well afford to have it sitting on the shelf for when I feel like using it.
Next up, a (very rare) post about the Leica X-vario, which I'm still using all the time, but write about very little.
