tedolf: DOF is too shallow wide open.

Almost as useless as f/1.8 85mm was on full frame was.

It is difficult for them to contain Tedolph.

Try though they may!

Franz Weber: Feathered bokeh is only needed when birding. For shooting horses it just makes no sense.

wildbild: purple is my favorite fringe color, by far!

I don't get it.

@Dan,

Dan, let it go.

I know you people are obsessed with Trump but just let it go.

Try real hard.

It's a bit disgusting but that's how the world is.

It's complicated

McEnroe laughed all the way to the bank.

So will this guy.

10x as many people know about him and his band today than did yesterday.

He made $$ hand over fist with all his "antics". He took a "sissy" sport and make it OK for guys to watch on ABC Wide World of Sports.

@Vick,

Ask the bad boy of tennis, John McEnroe if there is any such thing as bad press.

@Beckler,

Do we really need to bring politics into this?

One of the reasons some of us come here is to get away from that stuff.

Marty4650: If art is any good, it doesn't need to subsidized by taxpayers.

If no one is willing to buy it, then it is nothing more than something the artist alone thought was significant.

Marti,

Do yourself a favor-stop digging.

This is coming from a card carrying member of the Libertarian Party.

You might also want read about the concept of external economies to the supply and demand system.

cdembrey: A FILM Pen F had a central viewfinder. It didn't have fake Leica rangefinder styling. If this camera was a true Digital Pen F I'd be interested. But I'm not a poser, so I'li continue to use my 1935 Leica llla Full-Frame-Film camera when I feel the need to look like an Angry Artist 8-)

@cdembry

The film PEN F had its viewfinder on the left side, just like a rangefinder.

Great Bustard: Well, it was "fair use" for Richard Prince:

so, I guess this guy wanted some of the action, too, since the courts approve of that kind of thing.

Good catch GB, and there are other more recent cases like it.

Is this a "transformative work"?

If so, it is not a copyright infringement.

Sdaniella: hair thin dof won't be so hair thin on lower-rez 18mp Leicas
maybe not even on 24mp Leicas
so, slight misfocus has quite a bit of leeway

but hair thin dof will surface more so on those film FF cams, or digital FF cams, exceeding 30/36mp or 40/50mp

for those with digital Leicas with LV, good focus-check magnification capability, would help a long way

Sorry:

CoC (mm) = viewing distance (cm) / desired final-image resolution (lp/mm) for a 25 cm viewing distance / enlargement / 25

Pixel pitch is not a parameter.

Michiel953: Has anyone thought of the possibility this lens might yield exceptional results at f2.0, f2.8, f4.0?

And has anyone thought of the fact that depth of field, at a given aperture, increases with distance?

No one’s forcing anyone to use it only at max aperture. I’d really like to use it max aperture, min distance (75 cms?), focusing on the near eye pupil though. Fantastic!

@Mescalamba,

What do you mean, "most sensors are f2 or higher"?

I have no idea what you are saying.

In reply to:

tedolf: How are you going to focus this thing on an old M3, or even an M7?

The rangefinder base isn't long enough to give you accurate focus with a DOF that shallow. As I remember, focusing a 135mm f/3.5 wide open was hit or miss on a M rangefinder.

TEdolph

So, uh, where was the person?
