I was hesitant to purchase this thing, mainly because of its price tag
I love taking CLOSEUP shots, with the zoom zoomed all the way into closeup mode!
I was pretty pleased with the Digilux 2's range, but I wanted to get closer to many objects ---- the ELPRO has made that possible!
with the ELPRO on, I can probably get within a few inches of an object, and still keep it in focus..... without the ELPRO, I'll start getting out of focus at around 8 inches or so --- so it makes a difference!
the color quality is still beautiful! The lense is made by Leica as well --- so there is very little, if any, difference in color definition
my only complaint is that this lense doesn't come with a case or cover --- which is a little weird - so hopefully, Leica figures out a solution to that
otherwise ---- it is an EXCELELNT accessory - highly recommended!
