New lens constructing engineer at Leica...

...you didn't respond to my question about variations in French question marks...

I can't seem to recall the question you asked Howard, sorry.

...crop factors don't change apertures. But they do change _effective_ apertures. ...the point has been repeated on LuLa...

Looks like i've missed something here Howard as i don't know what is an 'effective' aperture and what is LuLa as well... if it's not the name (or the nickname) of the President of Brazil of course

. I can just repeat that i agree with what Guido wrote above: 'a Cron is a Cron, no matter if on FF or M8'. Quite obvious to me.

Thanks. It's totally off topic, but it amounted to:

LCT--

May the first pair be interchanged in French, i.e.

» and « ?

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Not aware of this Howard. To my humble knowledge its either:

Incidentally isnt it entirely possible that this new engineer might simply be replacing someone who retired, left for a better paid job at Zeiss, or heaven forbid fell under a bus?

 

That's what I thought, too.

 

And there is also a much worse version:

 

Perhaps excellent engineers capable to solve unsolvable-said technical problems were too frustrated being reduced to an instrument of a certain Mr. Lee, who said (not directly, but between the lines) in his interview, that he will clearly prefer quantity rather than top-quality?

Who knows? Perhaps they did not change to zeiss, but just escape?

 

Just my 0.02 Cents...
