Sorry, more tests of the Nikon 180 vs. the Apo Telyt R. Georg, you are right, without the tripod and at about 1/250s or so, I likely had some camera shake.
This time exposure added (20% Shadows in PSE) since the snow is destroying my ability to estimate exposure. And these should show more of the background blur.
The Leica's more than twice the cost (some of the ones I have seen are more like three times) of the Nikon. Plus add the cost of replacing the mount with a Nikon F adapter.
First the wide open shots.
Leica at f/3.4
