Re: Hi : ) !!! Leica 60 mm. and Zeiss 50 mm. - your comments,...


I used to have Leica 60/2.8 and have still 60/2.8 MP C/Y and 50/2 MP ZF1.

I agree with what kosmoskatten said about the Leica and C/Y MP.I would say 50/2 MP is the best of the bunch.Not only because it's the fastest,but it beats 60/2.8 C/Y in mid range/infinity sharpness,esp below f5.6 and has better microcontrast.It is also sharper and contrastier overall compared to the Leica 60/2.8.

This does not imply you'll be unhappy with 60 C/Y of Leica - they are both great lenses,but 50/2 is a clear winner for me.And you won't need any leitaxing,only an adapter to adapt ZF/ZF.2 to Canon and nothing to use with Nikon.

some of the older stuff with MP 60/2.8 C/Y:

NEX at f8







NEX at 2.8 or f4







NEX at f5.6







NEX at f8 - macro







Some with 50/2 MP:

Nikon D600 af f11







NEX af f2.8 ISO 400 - heavily distorted in PP yet still very sharp across the frame at 100% despite poor lighting,one f stop more than wo and high ISO







NEX at f8 distant landscape







NEX at f8






NEX af f8 macro







And finnally Leica at f8 on EOS 50D,this is all I can find now:







and on th EOS 5D2 at f11
