  1. Taken in Tokyo Shinjuku. Leica M9, 21mm f/1.4 Summilux ASPH
  2. For those of you who are contemplating the purchase of this latest, big and expensive engineering prowess from our friends in Solms (until such time as the new Nocti becomes available), I thought I'd post a few pictures taken during a recent trip to Florida. All converted in LR, with standard adjustments (WB, curves and BW conversion - and, oh, yes, liberal use of the clone/heal tool to remove several small specks by courtesy of a dusty sensor...) All in all, this lens a fantastic tool, and f/1.4 makes it highly versatile. I like the way colors and OOF areas are rendered, as well as its sharpness, although these are, as always, highly subjective factors. Distortion is very acceptable (to me at least) and you need to try really hard to start noticing some flare. I'm also happy that I didn't upgrade the shutter, as I found myself hitting 1/8000s quite frequently even in moderate sunlight. ND filter may be the way to go with the new shutter or the M8.2 if one does not want to stop down when using the lens on sunny days. I guess my biggest gripes are inherent to the fact that it's such an extreme design (but then, you can't have everything, can you?): 1- The lens is big - although handling is rather easy and it doesn't feel too disproportionate on the M8 - and so is the hood (not vented); in consequence, a fairly large portion of the viewfinder is blocked and a good dose of guesswork is required to include the lower right corner in the composition you are trying to achieve; 2- Fringing is very apparent when shooting wide open into a strong source of light (somewhat like the current f/1.0 Nocti in this respect); this improves somewhat as you stop down. The above are just my impressions after a few days of real-life use. I understand Sean Reid is working on a review of this lens: I'll be very interested to see what he thinks. P.S.: for those who are interested, I have uploaded more on my zenfolio site (all the pictures currently in the Miami Beach set were taken with this lens)
  3. Does anyone has any idea whether the UV/IR filter must be taken off when shooting film? Will it cause strange colors on film especially with wide angles like 21 or 24 Summilux? Thanks very much.
