Re: Ken Rockwell 5R Review


I like that he's caught on to the manual lens craze.

Though he doesn't fully acknoledge it, that Summilux 35 eats the kit-lens for breakfast in the corners.

It's no wonder he receives such grief around dpreview:

I compared shots taken at the test range at 16MP with the 18-55mm OSS with shots taken with the LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH mit floating element ($5,000) and adaptor ($5~$40), and they were pretty much the same. I personally wouldn't waste time with manual lenses and adapters. The biggest visible difference is that the images from the kit lens were better because they were warmer, while the LEICA lens was bluer.
