Re: T-mount Leica lenses on FF?

Forgetting the old adage, when in doubt read the manual,

The fairly detailed FP user guide gives me the answer:

crop mode will result in a 9.8mp image which will be a 7.1MB file in fine setting, 14 bit DNG.

I can turn it off if I like, so the sensor will capture the entire image. Still don't know if/how much vignetting will occur. Based on my experience in the Pentax system, some lenses are practically or entirely vignette-free, others have strong vignetting, particularly the shorter ones.

So I suspect the Leica 23mm would vignette if used as a true 23. But I'd want to use it as designed, to give me a 35mm angle of view.

Thanks for your observations guys.
