elefteriadis alexandros: Art mode and filter is just to distract from the real problem, its small format without control in DOF. All pictures look flat because the lens mm its to low for 3D looking pictures, i miss the medium format quality.

Just read it Astrotripper.
Its easy and simple to understand.

The only way is to start all over again about photography aspects, many people miss it because is a fashion victims rather than photographer. Sure you can make a good photography even with phone but this is not the case here... and special if a camera cost 1000 Euro... So use your phone with this logic and leave us to press the companys for a real good camera.

Exactly, because for keep this two factors constant you need different mm of lens when you change format, and perspective is related to mm also of course and DOF.

Exactly, DOF is related to control the depth of field, 3D is related to perspective of thinks inside the pictures. As lens mm is getting low in small format, (for example a ''normal'' lens in medium format is 80mm - 127mm but the normal lens in 4/3 is 25mm), the picture look flat because the lower the mm means all the element in picture is send it far away and take the same dimension.

elefteriadis alexandros: Any serious photographer know that one of the core aspect in photography is DOF control and in small format is not only unachievable but also the picture look flat because the equal mm is low compare to biger format.
The lowest format for acceptable resalts is full frame and even and this is the lower limits.
Its time to move in medium format. The technology is ready.
Nothing to see here.

No problem with sarkasm here, i talk for real photographer not fashions victims.

Overall i prefer B&W filter, is the most easy to clean contrary to HOYA and special the HMC versions, i don't now about this SIGMA.

Any APS-C camera with control on aperture, speed and asa have the same picture quality, so whats the point for so expensive camera.
The retro ''look''??
Camera is a tool and nothing more, nothing to see here....

elefteriadis alexandros: I like to split the cameras in two category's.
1. Those who is the perfect tool for MY style of photography.
2. Those who is perfect as a machine in THEIR category.
And so because for me the depth control is very important, anything smaller than medium format is useless.
And that's why i still use medium format film cameras as the digital medium format is expensive for me.
I don't care if aps-c, 4/3 or what ever have 1 trillion asa, 20 stop dynamic range or 800 terapixel.
Is just not the right tool because in the first place they don't give me the right control of one of the most important factor in photography.

Back in the good old days (I’m showing my age here) when photographers shot on a variety of formats it was no problem. We all understood that how wide a lens’s field of view is, is determined by the format of the camera its used on. We also understood that DOF was not determined by this field of view, but by the actual focal length of the lens (and the f stop used). So you would just shift gears with each change in camera format, and understand that, for example, a 90mm lens on a 5″x4″ (12 x 10cm) camera was a really wide lens, whereas on a 6x6cm medium format it was a slight telephoto, but the DOF at the same aperture would be the same (excluding the enlargement factor).

What seems to be the difficult part for people to understand here is the field of view, and how the DOF relates to it… in short, it doesn’t relate at all. Although a 50mm lens on a 35mm format camera and an 80mm lens on a Medium format camera give you a similar field of view, they will not give you the same DOF for a given aperture. Its an easy mistake to make, to assume because your angle of view looks the same, your DOF will be the same too… But DOF is dependent on Focal length, not field of view, so the 80 mm lens on the medium format in fact has the same DOF as an 80mm lens on 35mm format (for the same aperture).

No my friend iLza.
You unterstand all wrong.
Depth of field and perspective change for a fix giving angle of field when the format is change and why this?
An 80mm lens is an 80mm lens whichever camera its on, the focal length at infinity is 80mm and its DOF is a constant factor of the f-stop used. What changes is how much of the image projection is included in the frame, the angle of view. A 35mm camera has a film area (or sensor) of 36mm x 24mm, whereas a medium format camera has a much larger area of film or sensor, usually between 60mm x 45mm to 60mm x 70mm. This is a considerably bigger area so the sensor “sees” a much wider view of the image the lens is projecting, which changes the perspective to a wider field of view.

As an example in 6X7 medium format the field of view of 55mm lens is equal as 23mm lens in full frame digital camera.
An this is not something different only in DOF control but special the perspective of subject is complete different weil you keep the same field of view.
That's the reason why even with wide angle in medium format the subject look 3D and have distance from the background.

Its hard to explain why those lens is so expensive in a community that grow up with cheap china product and special when this china products have almost the same quality.. so what's the point??
Well, they respect theyre oun people and their job and pay equally because they know with these salary they keep the money in their country..
So send your money in china and in the future try to find a job with the 1/10 of today salary..

djrocks66: I'm just wondering... I have never used a Leica before. Are these lenses really the sharpest and do they have the best color/contrast? I am pleased with my Fuji system and find the prime lenses very sharp with great color and contrast. Is it part hype or are they the real deal? Just wondering.

I use only film and the best lens in sharpness department in 35 mm is contax g lens and special the 45mm f2 in my contax G1.
Its so amaizing sharp that when i look truth a grain Magnifier when i print the negative one particular hair can end in a single grain!!

All the camera today is so close in picture quality that all the samples is equal or at least so close that the most important factor is how you feal with a particular camera rather the diferent in picture quality.
