f/Egor for Leica: A Fetishist’s Guide to the Monochrom (Part 3)

f/Egor for Leica: A Fetishist’s Guide to the Monochrom (Part 3) | Leica M | Scoop.it
Posted by grEGORy simpson on November 7, 2012"After getting downright dirty in details in Part 2, we’re going to begin Part 3 right where we left off — in the mud and the grime and the goo of image quality discussions…Highlight FetishistsThere’s been a fair amount of internet chatter over the fact that clipped highlights in a Monochrom are well and truly clipped, and that you can’t reclaim highlight detail from the RAW file, as you might with a color file. The reason color cameras have a little extra highlight headroom is that they assemble an image from three different color channels — so if one of the channels isn’t quite clipped, your RAW converter can interpret this unclipped channel as “detail.” Contrary to this, the Monochrom records only a single (albeit much higher fidelity) luminance channel. So, when a highlight clips, there’s no second or third channel from which to recover possible data.I spent an inordinate amount of time (days) shooting specular highlights and purposely overexposing scenes using both the M9 and the Monochrom. I took hundreds of shots to compare how the Monochrom responded to blown highlights, versus the M9.Here’s what I found:"...blog.leica-camera.com

Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 - Review / Test Report | PhotoZone

Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 - Review / Test Report | PhotoZone | Leica M | Scoop.it


A fast normal prime is a key lens in almost any system. For Leica and the M system, this role is best played by the Summicron 50mm f/2 lens. There is a little difference compared to most other systems, though: usually a fast normal prime is also a really affordable lens. Anyone familiar with the brand already knows that there is no such lens in Leica land, at least as long as we're talking about current products. For the price of the Summicron, one could also buy ten 50mm f/1.8 SLR lenses with F or EF mount. The Summicron 50/2 as it is sold today is already the 4th generation. The first version dates back to 1959, while the current product was introduced in 1979. Since then, the lens has not changed internally, making it one of the oldest products in Leica's portfolio. However, the barrel has been redesigned in 1994, replacing the clip-on hood with an integrated one. In this review we'll have a look at how the lens performs on our test camera, the Leica M9.....
