kelvinjay: Price sounds good. Lens looks sharp. LOCA still seems an issue, as shown in this sample shot: http://www.cnet.com/uk/pictures/sigma-50mm-f14-photo-samples/3/

I'm still interested, just a little less enthusiastic after seeing that.

Sorry. I didn't realise that not wanting really quite noticeable LOCA wide open was asking for perfection. I guess we all have different standards.

On Leica M-Monochrom preview (452 comments in total)

Those sample images really do a good job at showing how poorly the camera can perform. Maybe another photographer would have been able to get better results, but those are just shocking.

The one of the girl laying down holding the Nikon is just full of blown highlights and has no detail in the brighter areas of her jacket. The girl in the back of the cab has her nose blown out too. These aren't just insignificant parts of the compositions.
