About me:

I <3 grain. Leicaphile. Photophile. Used to shoot Canon, but quit cold turkey. Still love her, though.

LeicaBOSS's recent activity

  • It is a great image, and what has become a classic Leica editing style as well. Actually, for a challenge wwith just over 30 images, there was a lot of talent on display. It was a great pleasure...
  • So - here's two (HUGE) images... The first from a Pentax 645D and 55 f/2.8 lens (at f/11) and the second a 36MP Sony A7r with Leica 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. I had to downsample a little bit for file...
  • I almost always focus manually as well. Admittedly, I hate the focus by wire with a passion... With that completely absurd variable speed and delay. There is just no way to focus intuitively. In...
  • Sorry that I am not with my photos right now, but I have this combo. Use the LA-E4. You won't miss the 1/3 stop at all, that is a promise. The size is basically a bit bulkier than the A7r with an...

    Hey, congrats! And what a wonderful image!
  • Nothing wrong with balancing the two.
  • I have a strong sense that you will be very difficult to please - just a guess, and there's nothing wrong with that per se. BUT - this makes providing a recommendation tricky. Instead, here's the...
  • Steve. First - I really appreciate the conversation here. The Leica forum is really an epicenter for quality discussion. Based on my experience with a film M6 and my Summicron 35mm and older 50mm...

  • It's the sensor. Guaranteed. Even an VERY planar lens - i.e. the Zeiss ZE 50mm f/2 Makro Planar presents a forward bending field at the corners on the A7r. At infinity, you have to focus to ~20ft...
  • Replied in Promised Images
    I promised someone above some "front bokeh" Here's some very "challenging" front-bokeh - very busy subject, handled nicely.  And here's kind of a "typical" wide open shot with the Biogon. Has...
  • user_name "I think we are talking about different things. When I think of field curvature I am thinking about the focus plane of the lens." Actually - I am describing "curvature" of the plane of...
  • If you use LR5 - the Flat field plugin and a custom profile for the lens is a real revelation. Amazing.
  • The actual observed field curvature is a result of the lens/sensor combination. So - it's hard to say that either is a sole culprit. the Summicron is not, by a long shot, Planar. EDIT: You are...
  • Across many images - you will find more field curvature issues with the "right" lens on the first image (as well as less contrast/pop and perceived sharpness wide open). I do have a number of...
  • I like your eye - it works very much like mine. The bokeh is a really interesting item - as I tend to prefer a smoother "blurbutter" as well - but a 35mm, I find that smooth-with-structure works...
  • This is a good suspicion on the flower, and I wish that flower was motion blur or defocus - but it's actually just a veiling/glowey spherical aberration. A very saturated, "fine detail in the...
  • I have a 35mm Summicron f/2 ASPH in my stable. Upon recommendation from a friend, I picked up a Zeiss Biogon 35mm f/2 for a while to compare. Shot about 1,000 frames with each - and I will not...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Lounging in red
    Studio session with the Leica M9.
Most importantly, the martini is Boodles Gin, 2-count of Noilly Prat, stirred with a little bit of the dirty. A smaller cocktail glass, of course - because even at the last sip, it should still be laughing at you.
