Michael, thank you for taking the time to provide me with a detailed reply. That V1 is a very distinct lens. Your photographs have a beautiful tone! I am wondering if you have ever compared it to the V4?
Lastly, if I may ask you another question... How does the 35mm R Lux compare to the M version. I am assuming that you have compared them. Thanks Andrew
Andrew, I don’t have V4 35cron and never tried V4, but from MTF, it looks very good once stop down. By seeing image taken at f2, I don’t feel it deserve ‘king of Bokeh’ title Carstenw was point out that person name it clarify later that he was referring slow down Bokeh.
As for 35lux R and 35lux M, I think I answer you from Leica R thread I wish I can afford 35lux FLE. It should be an awesome lens, look what Joe, Allen got.
I feel Leica R lux have special character I am drawing into. For 35mm lens, be able to shoot close and place my focal point anywhere in the frame is my priority. So the 35lux R will bury with me. It also is one of sharpest 1.4 lens I ever had at “CENTER”.
I feel all leica R lux are character lens, means not as strong as some field than others. But modern M are usually extreme capable to do anything you want but lose just a liitle bit of character for particular mood/artish images. I feel if you like 50f1 and 75f1.4, you will love Leica trinity lux R for sure. I just bought the 80lux. it is on my way to me. I am look forward to try it.
