Help seeking low light improvement

Recommended Posts

Quick update, I’ve just received a TL 35mm 1.4 in the post. Initial thoughts; heavier than expected but it feels solid and well put together. Lens hood is ridiculously sized. Shallow DOF capability looks really impressive, I’m not a huge bokeh person but nice to have the option. Already seeing the ISO number roughly halved in similar conditions to the 23mm.

I’ve also gone ahead and ordered an ex-demo TL2 from Leica UK for some comparisons. I’ll see how it is in hand. 14 day return policy if I need it.

 

thanks for all the guidance!

Glad to help. The ISO number change makes sense since the 35/1.4 is twice as fast as the 23/2. This also seems to indicate you shoot wide open a good bit of the time. :)

I had my CL and M-D out together the other day and pulled the Summilux 35/1.4 lens off the M-D to do some testing of the Voigtländer 10mm on the M-D FF format. While I was working with the M-D, I put the 'Lux on the CL mostly as a temporary body cap but couldn't help shoot a couple of exposures in my living room. 35mm is a normal lens on the CL and the 'Lux is indeed fast (the V10 is an f/5.6 lens) ... But the thing that got me was that when I looked at the photo, a 35mm lens seems so so very much like a telephoto when you've been working with the 10mm lens for a week or two! It was funny to think of "my usual wide" on the M-D being a bit of a telephoto lens...
