Thank for sharing.
The best is the disposal TriX 😉
After, I just quote the famous Ken Rockwell from his last great reviews “The Mitakon 90mm f/1.5 is an all-metal lens that looks just like the LEICA NOCTILUX-M 90mm f/1.5 with sloppy mechanics and optics good enough for people who don’t actually shoot LEICA.”
But, after about the Leica M11: how we can think of a brand which asks several thousand dollars for a camera and cooperates with Huawei and now XiaoMi (little rice ; like there is fish, military, or business 😉 ). Leica now is a luxury camera brand which sales digital cameras, but if their lens are very good, and personally I will never put something very low in my film Leica, such this copy of Leica lens, I think from you sharing the best for me is the disposal TriX, because this is TriX and a disposal camera could be very useful. For a good mobile phone now, best are: Sony, Apple and Samsung (I secure my communication devices by avoiding any other brand especially if they try to impress me with a Leica logo).
