LD_50's recent activity

  • I own an M-P and not an M8. I don't own the Zeiss lens. I also do not own any Fuji gear at this time. I don't believe this is at all relevant to what I've stated since I've not claimed to have ...
  • Read what I wrote. Unless comparing two cameras with the same lens and sensor combination you can't isolate sensor glass thickness as the variable that will indicate the resolution of the output ...
  • Yes I'm serious. Crop factor has nothing to do with resolution. Sensor glass thickness is going to have nothing to do with resolution in comparing these two different cameras. Unless you're going ...
  • I like very much the first image. The juxtaposition of the dark and light halves of the image combined with the near symmetry of the vertical elements is very interesting.
  • I would not expect images shot with the Leica M8+Zeiss 35/2 Biogon to out resolve a Fuji X-T1+23mm given equal test conditions. Black and white or color processing would have nothing to do with it ...
  • It would be very difficult to judge "acceptable" sharpness by viewing these images. A tripod mounted camera with adequate target and clearly defined focusing method and focus point would be ...
  • Thanks for this review. The balet photos are very nice. I was looking at every review I could find on this lens recently to make a decision between it and the 35 Summilux FLE. I ended up going with ...
  • Multiple items for sale in the LA area. All in like new condition. Please PM me or see the links included to email me. Nikon D4s-- $5800 http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/pho/4841714330.html Nikko ...
  • You attack those who disagree (including questioning my understanding of language). It has nothing to do with owning or not owning this lens, as I don't own it and stated this. Putting a coke ...
  • If you recognize that objective measures don't result in subjective value then why bring them up when arguing the Noctilux provides no value? Is there a comparable lens of its size, max aperture, ...
  • "Nothing religious about resolution tests, vignetting tests, contrast, fringing and bokeh." The interesting thing about this type of comment is that there appears to be an assumption that there is ...
  • I've recently switched from a Nikon D4s to a Leica M-P (typ 240). I also own a Sony RX1. The Nikon and Sony produce more useable high-ISO images (advantage to the D4s, even when downsampling the ...
  • Well done. I prefer #3, #2, and then #1. I think #3 would stand up very well as an abstract without the others.
  • Replied in Identity
    I'm lost with this interpretation. It looks like a collage rather than what I associate with HDR. I much prefer the original.
  • Replied in Identity
    I find the composition interesting with the angle of the face and the background. I like it. The brightness of the hair and darkness of the face leads my eyes away from the facial features. Perhaps ...
  • Why not look at examples of photos taken with each lens? Reddotforum has an article with a scene shot with multiple 50mm lenses on an M9. I'm sure there are other examples of the same.
  • The "Leica look" would need to be defined but it is likely not something the gear will give you. If you're after high quality glass in a small package take a look at the Sony RX1. It gets you an ...
  • I prefer the black and white over the color. The first photo is the best of the bunch shown here, well done.
  • Replied in A dying breed
    The subject is not clear as my eyes are drawn first to the animal yet I wonder if it's meant to be about the barn. In my opinion "title" of the photo should not confuse the viewer, it should add ...
  • Higher resolution is valuable for cropping, the advantages gained from downsampling, the outright resolution for larger prints, etc. I can't think of a any negative other than perhaps file size and ...
