Leica digest (Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens review, black dot replacement for M10)


→ A set of six used Leica Summicron-C T2.0 cinema lenses listed for sale at $72,500 (full price: $90,100).


→ David Farkas has some of the best reviews on Leica gear and he just published his review of the Leica Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens:

"The 50mm Summilux-SL ASPH is a formidable lens, offering sharpness at f/1.4 that is nothing short of extraordinary. Combine that detail with luscious bokeh and lovely color rendition and you have the makings of an incredible lens. Leica set out to make a statement with its first prime SL lens, and they have mostly succeeded. It’s not perfectly perfect. There is a fair amount of vignetting wide open (which I quite like), focus is on the slow side, minimum focus distance is a touch long and the lens is a bit of a beast. But if you can live with these minor shortcomings, the 50 SL will reward you with some astonishing results.

Bottom line: If you are looking for a remarkable quality high-speed lens for your Leica SL, the 50 Lux is probably the ticket."
