Peter Karbe's lens and camera of choice in 2023
Al Brown posted a topic in Leica M LensesIn a recent interview in Austrian Der Standard Peter Karbe was asked which camera and lens would be his preferred choice. The answer was "not an easy one", but it would be M11 and APO-Summicron 35. "STANDARD: One last question: If you had to choose a combo, what would be your camera and your lens of choice? Karbe: The M11 and APO-Summicron 35mm. But that's one of those questions... which of your children do you like best? If I had to choose, I would use this combination." Here is the link to the full (unlocked) Peter Karbe Der Standard interview (in German) by Mickey Manakas, where he speaks about the compromise in building the Noctilux f/0.95 and its evident flaws, the "Leica Look" myth, his views on smartphone photography, his pride in personally calculating the optical formula for Summilux 50 ASPH and many other cool topics: https://www.derstandard.at/story/2000144541043/leitender-optikexperte-bei-leica-wir-waren-vorreiter-bei-der-digitalisierung

Why are Leica Lenses The Best in the World?
Herr Barnack posted a topic in Leica M LensesFrom LHSA, here's a short but interesting read about Leica M lenses and the optical engineering virtuosos who have designed them over the decades. With tomorrow's coming announcement of the APO 35mm Summicron M, the world of photography is about to receive the next installment in this ongoing demonstration of (near) perfection. Why are Leica Lenses The Best in the World? The answer lies at the nexus of objective science, an enduring passion for excellence, and a lineage of inspired optical designers steeped in a great tradition https://lhsa.org/2018/08/why-are-leica-lenses-the-best-in-the-world/
