Great shots, guys, keep them coming.
Thanks for your thoughts. My personal preference is to shoot 50mm cron, but I find I'm missing too many wider shots. I'd love to go wider, but 28mm at 2.8 is just not cutting it for me. I feel that a 35mm at 1.4 or 2 would allow me to get close to people while also giving me that extra field of view for parties and touring. Just that the canon glass is cheaper, so I was wondering if there's a reason for that when compared to leica glass. Thanks for your reply. Will have to think about this one...Show more →
Hi, Roni, Somehow, I totally forget answer your question. I am using Type-S screen from Canon, which is supported by 6D. It is doing fine job and I feel it is crucial for Canon that focus confirmation usability is no way compare to Nikon body. Especially for f1.4 Glass.
35lux R is specialty lens. I doubt it worth prime above Canikon and Sigma for optics. It is for people enjoy manual focus and shooting experience with high build quality lens, It last more than we do, and keep its value better than plastic one with electronics inside, but don't expect wonder from it compare to others f1.4
That is how I have felt about 100mm lenses...and 50s: that they are so distinctive that it is worth collecting a few. I regret having sold my 50 cron and R6 a few years ago. I "need" to pick up another one and find a 35 cron too, it seems.
Jim, About 35cron, I feel i will recommend 50cron higher than 35cron as the FC is kind of extreme and slow down performance is a lot unpredictable. for 35cron V1 M, I just turn to infinity or to desire focus plain and get cross frame sharpness, nothing to worry about. To get 35cron corner in sharp is a lot tricky, at this focal length, I don't have the luxury to have DOF cover all the frame and FC like 21-35mm at 21mm does. For me, it is a less concern as 80% of stuff I do is family pics. seldom i need sharp corner.
It certainly shining at many things, I love its relative smaller size and DOF rendering. I like the fact that it is extreme sharp lens at center even WO, I also like its focus transition at close distance, a merit almost all Leica R have. CA is well controlled as well. another leica's strong point general speaking.
So just prepare it is within your expectation.
I can assume this will be a thought after lens by videophile.
Since I am at 35cron. here are some from 6D.
