You might want to broaden your inquiry to include users of the Schneider 120 TS as I believe
the Leica version is a rebrand of the same optic.
Couldn't speak as to whether Leica adds anything to the mix with their version.

What do you want the lens to do I've have researched it for macro shooting and have spent sometime discussing my issues with their tech department as for the macro part it would save me stacking about 6 shots so I decided to go another route. In other words I now stack 22-28 shots for an object based on a formula that was worked out by Schneider the lens at full tilt would save me 6 shots appx. I went with hasse's 120mm type ii and the 1.7x multiplier and sometimes a extension tube. For my job its working fine next step WIIL be a tech cam like Linhof or better yet Arca M . Unless this in the near future works http://resources.mpi-inf.mpg.de/KaleidoCam/?
