I can't wait for bashers from both camps to jump on it

Although it shows everything that is well known: M9 is sharper due to no anti-aliasing filter, it has more noise, NEX tends to like magenta hue a lot... The rest is unconclusive, since the test is not too scientific

Hard to tell sharpness because of DoF FF vs APS.

Slightly more mpix at Leica and a lot more resolution. Not sure its worth for everyone (considering noise), but Im sure that if I could get one, I would.

I think Leica owners know that there are "better cameras" than M9. They just dont care about that.

And I hope M10 will be soon..

If anyone is interested here is my NEX 5N vs my 5d. The NEX is a wonderful camera (amazing camera for portability and MF), but in terms of pure IQ my old 5d still nudges it out in comparison after comparison that I have don....


Both shot with Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 @ f/8.....

Handheld at high ISO? Seriously dude..

Here's a proper comparison, tripod, focus bracketing, timer release:








Zeiss 25/2.8 Biogon by the way..

If Sony ever come up with FF version of Nex-5N, it will create some serious commotion....

^ - nicely done.

Here's another one. This one you will have to take this one with a grain of salt because its using different lenses, but I've done a bunch of these comparisons with equally good lenses on both cameras and the 5d always comes out ahead. The NEX files are larger and thus more magnified but even if I uprez the the 5d to 16mp its still has the advantage. Again, I love the NEX, its amazing, but in terms of pure IQ that FF sensor still rules....

5d....

If anyone was wondering my above rock wall example was using the Yashica 50 1.7 on the 5d and the CZJ 35 f/2.5 on the NEX.

I still prefer the 5D IQ too... but I'm starting to like the 5N handling. I know that's blasphemy, but it's pretty easy to nail focus. Now I feel like I'm straining my eyes on the 5D. I'm excited about getting a EVF for the 5N.

As for NEX vs Leica... I really could care less. I would think most M9 users probably don't care about the NEX either. I'm not bashing on anyone for comparing the two, I just feel like it's a redundant theme that probably only a very few people actually care about and if I had to guess I think those folks would fit the description of gearhead NEX owners (or the fewer that actually own both cameras).

Even if the 5N has better quality, Id stilll take an M9. With Leica it's all about the user experience.

For NEX owners it is probably irrelevant (except for perhaps to see what some of the lenses that can be used on a NEX are really capable of). For M9 owners the NEX can be an affordable backup camera as it can mount M mount lenses. That's why I got one (decided on the C3 rather than the 5N in the end as I don't expect ever to use it and it takes up the least space).
