  1. A set with S006 and 120 APO S
  2. S006 with Contax 80mm
  3. 006 with Hasselblad 110mm
  4. 006 with Contax 80mm
  5. Contax 645 80mm S006 Gorgeous bokeh from this lens, you don't see this from modern glass.
  6. I think we are not going anywhere for arguing technical term or personal interpolation. The real value of this thread is presenting the information or fact about particular lens but not arguing the tech term, at least that is my take and even bypass some comments and reply here include OP's. (sorry) I have seen many modern lenses include Leica own SL cron in this range exceed 90 APO M color correction performance include LaCA and LoCA ( or bokeh fringing, whatever that term you or he called) though I don't know how much these get corrected in hardware or software level individually but
  7. Not only better on Z camera. It will be better than 90APO in contrast, near range performance and color correction. ( with 90APO on Leica and 85S on Z). I did the test myself. 90APO has decent color correction but really not better than many latest mid tele in this regard. For example SL cron, Nikon 85S and even sigma 65mm. It has more CA than I like to see for a lens with APO label. I handled multiple copy of this lens, it is normal behavior. Just need align your expectation here. I personally think it is due for change. I do love 90 APO due to size and rangefinder focus and o
  8. Here is one with 70mm Summarit S Hiking during wild fire around Yosemite
  9. A set with S007 100mm Summicron S
  10. Yes, S is special. I have GFX100s and love it as a tool. I only bought 30 and 45mm both incredible sharp glasses. I dont plan to get more focus by wire glasses but adapt long R, OTUS, Nikon F or Leica S (wide open only) for long side. I personally can clearly see how incredible this sensor is. It is the most robust sensor I ever worked with regarding process. BW file is just in another level to other camera include SL2, S007/006. However, if it doesn't allow me adapt FF glasses, I will not use it much other than landscape. S's specialness is real. you also have to consider this is not o
  11. SLR have a separate AF sensor which is phase detection only. There is no point for SLR implement contrast detect on that sensor as it is not for image anyway and it will be slower because of feedback control nature of CDAF. The focus error is not from phase detection but separated path from focus and imaging and open loop nature that focus algorithm instruction can be off from individual lens or camera based on detected phase error. 007 do have CDAF for LCD shooting. There are also technical complication for off center focus accuracy and aperture allowed due to light angle but
  12. I don’t think this could be a NDA case (telling us there is problem free original 006) if you disagree with this statement about corrosion root cause and time line, I am all ear if you have evidence or inside info to share. the problem cause is well known. The key is time line. It is not a rumor by any stretch but more a common logical sense to me.
  13. I was told by Leica NJ that Leica found out sensor problem and solution after stop 006 and SE and have 007 in production for years already. So all original 006 have the same sensor cover glue are prone to corrosion over time. I have seen 006 cameras with almost zero use show random corrosion spots.
  14. Well, be a S users long enough will have lots of chance to talk with store and customer service even headquarter people in Germany. which above info you refer to? Maybe quote directly so I can answer more specific.
