Leica M (Typ 240) and 28mm Elmarit ASPH, 24mm Elmar ASPH samples?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I have been disappointed with residual uncorrected color shifts in the corners of shots with my M9P and 28mm Elmarit ASPH and 24mm Elmar ASPH lenses (particularly snow scenes). The built in profiles of my camera don’t seem adequate for my samples of these lenses. Has anyone with the new Leica M worked with these lenses? If so, could you please post samples?

 

Thanks, Steve K

Steve,

Did you update to the latest firmware? They include improvements of all wide lenses.

Yes I use M9 1.196 firmware, but I’m not satisfied with the flatfield correction on these lenses with my camera body, the 28mm has cyan corners and the 24mm has some cyan corners and some red corners. I suspect minor manufacturing variations lead to the color casts being acceptable with some M9 body/wide lens combos and not good enough on others. For example Lloyd Chambers noted the same flaw I am experiencing with my 24mm/3.8 elmar with a 21mm/3.4 Super Elmar he tested on his M9. For landscape work, I prefer the Elmarit’s smoother out of focus rendering to the blurrier rendition of the Summicron, but the color casts are much worse with the little Elmarit.

 

I was curious as to how improved the corner color rendering may be with the new Leica M model 240 with the 28mm/2.8 ASPH and 24mm/3.8 ASPH lenses in particular. I have seen some nice photos from the 28mm Summicron but not the Elmarit ASPH yet, and I have not seen any samples from the 24mm/3.8.

With the latest firmware this seems strange. Would you be able to post some examples?

      Whilst sat at the traffic lights today I noticed this guy and managed to shoot it very quickly through the closed window of my car. First time I have tried this.

      South Downs National Park, Hampshire, England. Not the best of weather, but trying to get out of the rut. I am also trying to change direction away from street photography a bit:

      My Leica D-Lux 3 that displays (1) a purple color shift for white colors in bright light; and (2) a photos show a green or yellow tint in low light.
      I have looked over the presets and defaults. I cannot find a switch that improves the display.
      I believe that the exposure sensor is damaged or malfunctioning.
      Otherwise, the camera is in good shape cosmetically and according to a review of the presets and default, working correctly.
      A used replacement on Ebay is about $150 to $200.
      My questions are:
      -1- Can I send my camera to the Leica repair for a new sensor for that amount of money? I know about the submission form that requires a maximum repair cost to be stated.
      -2- Is a Leica repaired camera totally checked out and then repaired so as to insure long lasting functioning?
      -3- Is it better to purchase another non-leica camera for $150 to $200 with improved specifications like increased megapixels?
      Thanks for reviewing my questions,
