A very quick follow up post to todays early post containing my first colour shots from my MS-Optical converted Nikon L35 35mm f/2.8 Sonnar. After I posted those shots, I was asked to take a few with the Leica M8, so whilst out with the family this afternoon I added to a couple of shots I took yesterday.
Nothing mind blowing I’m afraid, but for those interested I’ve tried to demonstrate some of of the lenses traits. Of course the vignette is cropped out by the Leica M8’s smaller-than-full-frame sensor, but other traits are still quite evident. Not least the veiling flare…
I can also see a bit of ghosting in this photo (of my wife looking beautiful and daughter looking mega cute), but where this is a bit of ghosting, the contrast has returned and with it the good colours.
At f5.6 the lens seems to be reasonably sharp on contrasty
Did I mention my cute daughter?
So there we have it – as I say, no life changing photography, but hopefully of interest if you were keen to see some shots taken with a digital camera…
