Anyway, on with the update. The problem with Leica, you may be a little worried seeing the title. Worry you should be as there's obviously a major problem with Leica. Their M lens are too darn good and too different you can't have just one! Few weeks ago I finally collected the long-awaited 24 Summilux, thanks to a few good friends who sourced it for me in Hong Kong. While the 24 Elmarit is a great lens, I always like the 24 Summilux and its ability to throw the background out of focus at such a wide angle. Well, I haven't had much time to shoot with it, but I will share a few quick shots with you.
Crying Baby - Here you can see how much the 24 Summilux can isolate the subject at f2.0. (This is something the 24 Elmarit cannot do with the f2.8 aperture.)
True to Leica's tradition, the 24 Summilux still offers great sharpness.
Also below are a few more photos taken with a recently acquired 50 Summicron. I really need to spend more time shooting this wonderful lens. My M-lens collection has grown too big, too quickly! Time to make a few hard decisions and let some of them go!
50 Summicron, cropped. Note the smooth bokeh. I will try to compare it with the Zeiss Planar soon.
A few more from the 50 Summicron.
Soon I will be on a long business trip. I'm still not sure if I can update the blog during the trip but definitely when I return. The M9 surely will come long. The problem is which lenses!
Have a good week!
