The Leica S2 must have shipped a day late, because it didn’t show up today as expected, too bad because I had some immediate coverage planned that will now need to wait until Monday/Tuesday. See my pre-review coverage.
However, the 70mm Summarit-S lens did show up. The 70mm Summarit-S is larger than I expected, but contrary to some criticism I’ve read, the lens shade is exceptionally functional eg it should be highly effective at eliminating stray light. To each his own, but the lens shade for the 70m means business, and it’s easy to reverse, or just leave in place. I have no issue with it at all, and it also affords excellent protection to the lens eg to keep rain or snow off the front glass.
