HowaboutRAW: Those D810 raws are lossless compressed raws, right?

S.S,

Thank you.

tangbunna: can this leica lens take a beautiful brick than other camera and lens?

FLruckas,

Demonstrating that you don't know of what you write isn't a personal attack.

Now calm down and stop abusing the meaning of language so as to get the "meaning" you want. I'll refrain here from the obvious personal attack I could turn this into.

See here your misuse of the word "vaporware" above for one other example of your abuse of language for your desired end.

FLruckas,

That's not a personal attack, it's a remark on your ignorance.

You got caught lying about something I said. You added a noun to statement I made to radically change the meaning, this lie of yours demonstrated your ignorance of better lenses. (Albeit you're not alone in this basic ignorance.)

You pretended that pixel count is all there is to image sharpness. You did this more than once. This is an astounding piece of ignorance of digital photography on your part. This isn't anything subtle like lenses and colour/light.

MikeF4Black:

"your definition of excellence may vary from mine. In any case, I don't see anything special in the combination of thís sensor and thís lens, judging by these images. A 750 with the Distagon 50/1.4 would imo not produce lesser quality images, by whatever measure."

The 50mm f/1.4 Distagon, not the Milvus, is nowhere near as sharp wide open as this Leica 50mm SL.

I owned that Zeiss lens, one had to stop it down to at least f/5.6 for it to be reasonably sharp. Excellent colour that Zeiss had/has.

Now, the D750 is a better higher ISO body than the SL, is lighter, and with AF lenses has better AF--and it's not like the Leica SL has bad AF.

So yes, put a Zeiss 50mm Milvus on that D750 and you'll be real close to the image quality capacity of the Leica SL with this Leica 50mm f/1.4. Now of course, the Zeiss is manual focus and the Leica is a better video camera than the Nikon D750.

FLruckas:

"Your ignor...ance of the facts is based on
the fact that you really can't understand them
or..."

And you have yet to cite facts.

The fact remains that you got caught making up things I'd not said or done. There's a word for that.

"Myth Buster"? Clearly, you've not watched the show, it's pretty conformist. They also got caught lying enough on camera, that the show became a joke--with an over agenda.

"alternate facts"? Like having used this gear?

Again with the "touches" invention.

You remain ignorant of basic facts about lenses and camera bodies. Do try using gear before shooting your mouth off.

FLruckas:

"You ignore facts all the time...
The fact is the 5DS has double the megapixels."

Where did I dispute that?

This doesn't follow, and shows your ignorance, also your incapacity to read my point about the L 85mm f/1.2:

"It will be sharper than any lens you can put on an SL."

"It will have much better color fidelity as well because it has double the sampling size."

I never said anything about color fidelity. Also more mega pixels doesn't equal better color fidelity.

"And it will cost half as much." This is true, and so far the only fact you have posted.

"Oh.. you walked into BH last week and touch some camera and magically based on your touching it become an expert?"

"Touch"?

I don't make claims about gear having only just touched it, except say about weight.

MikeF4Black,

The 58mm Nikon is decent optimally, it's not amazing like better Leica lenses, this SL 50mm included.

Yes the Milvus 50mm on the D750 is amazing.

FLruckas:

And outlier still doesn't mean vaporware.

"It has double the megapixels and that is what matters." Ha, ha, this is joke right?

"It's just your egotistical agenda."

Sad that you think "egotistical agenda" includes having used this gear including just last week the 85mm Canon L on the 5DSR.

Your ignorance of gear and language is showing.

FLruckas:

"Vaporware...." do you even know the meaning of the word? Answer: apparently not.

"You can't make a lens for the SL that will be sharper than a relatively normal lens on a 5DS". Sure you can.

More pixels doesn't making things automatically sharper.

"Your examples, as usual, are vaporware, outliers."

"Outlier" doesn't mean "vaporware". Leica has lenses scheduled to release for the SL system. And Leica has been sticking to this schedule.

The more you post the more your ignorance of lenses shows.

The Canon 5DSR is an excellent camera, Canon L lenses are a weakness for it if you care about optical performance.

As clearly you missed elsewhere in this section:

I just retried a Canon L 85mm f/1.2 on a 5DSR last week. Wide open the colour is a problem and it's not sharp--nor be it especially sharp stopped down bit. That is one of Canon's best lenses. It doesn't come close to this SL lens.

Do stop pretending to be familiar with better lenses and gear.

MikeF4Black:

"So yes, take a Nikon D750 (also a 24 Mp sensor), get a good 1.4/50, there you go."

Well, if that 50mm f/1.4 is a Zeiss Milvus mounted on the D750, right things are pretty close to this SL lens.

Oh, that's not what you meant.

Sorry, less than great colour/light is easy to see with Nikon's better lenses, there are starting to be exceptions, but not in the 50mm type.

Nor does the SigmaART 50mm compete with Leica and Zeiss for colour.

Now there are some other possibilities, but one doesn't offer a 50mm in Nikon's mount, and the other possibilities are outlier to say the least, and have manufacturing consistency issues, and I'm not sure these manual focus lenses come in 50mm.

FLruckas:

"You won't need an Otus lens on a 5DS to take a picture sharper than any picture that can be taken with this camera....."

Likely true, however not all the SL lenses are out, so you're guessing.

No, your other problem remains, colour, any you do need an Otus to equal anything like this colour on that Canon.

Do learn a few things about lenses before posting, you keep embarrassing yourself with ignorance.

desmond2046: This is essentially a Panasonic designed and manufactured full-frame camera. I hope to see a smaller and cheaper version with Panasonic branding.

FLruckas,

And still...

Then akin to onemoreguy you make an odd choice in the name of Hermes.

"can this leica lens take a beautiful brick than other camera and lens?"

Brick?

Yes, put a Zeiss Otus on a Nikon and you can photograph a brick just as nicely as you can with this Leica body/lens combination, and the Otus being big gives for that brick feel. Albeit there sure are lighter Nikon bodies than this SL. But the Leica TL, which also takes this lens, isn't especially heavy.

marcio_napoli: Carey, taking the opportunity to improve this site, considering Auni's criticism just below, why don't you guys shoot (or hire someone specialized on that niche) the most common uses a camera will have?

I'll explain:

- include a fashion shoot with each camera you review. I mean a dedicated fashion shoot, with a pro model, styling, makeup, outdoors, strobes, testing skin tones, cloth moiré and texture, flash sync speed, etc. Many fashion photographers visit this website.

- shoot a real wedding. I'm sure if you guys use your network, there's a wedding opportunity for each camera review.

- landscapes: I mean proper landscapes, go to a nice location, wait for the perfect light, just like landscapers do. This could test weather sealing as well.

- sports: shoot a real sport event, whatever sport is available inside the deadline.

All that stuff besides the usual DR test, high ISO test, etc.

What do Nikon D3X samples posted by Nikon have to do with samples that DPR may have posted from that same camera?

Nikon almost always only posts jpegs. I barely ever look at jpegs.

Only relevant to my purposes, the D3X is not a strong higher ISO body.

DPR doesn't really make money, it's part of a much larger company that makes money, sometimes, sometimes not.

DPR has shot plenty of "real weddings". And DPP testing people have taken all sorts of cameras to nice landscape locations--not limited to the Pacific Northwest.

"skin tones"? Download raws, from cameras shot with very good lenses.

If you mean "jpeg engines", say so.

"cloth moiré and texture", again download raws.

Models, good ones, and good make up cost real monies. Don't pretend otherwise.

PhotographyBlog likes to shoot camera launch events with "real models and make up". The raws they put up for download from these events are often horrid photographs. Albeit, said raws can demonstrate some technical capacity of the camera or lenses.

Credit?

You made a rather large mistake in deifying me.

Why don't you start by using better lenses, on decent bodies, doesn't have to be Leica lenses either. You could use Zeiss Milvus.

Right, it's not a mistake a literate person from the west would make.

But of course, you've already proven your inability to look up the noun "interjection".

As I wrote: Look up the noun "interjection".

It's a remarkable mistake your use of the name Hermes as a term of derision . It's not a mistake someone from the west, who's literate, would usually make.
