Leica 75mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M for Leica M8/M9/M

Leica 75mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH

I’m working with the Leica 75mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH on the Leica M9, and I will be adding my report to my review of the Leica M9.

My initial impressions are of a very fine lens, but one that pushes the rangefinder accuracy of the Leica M9 to its limits, an issue I elaborate on in detail in my Leica M9 review in DAP.

The accuracy of a rangefinder is often cited as excellent. But it’s really a crap-shoot, especially when one realizes that the accuracy of the optical system includes the human eye behind the camera, which might not be 20/20, might have astigmatism, might be tired or irritated, might be seeing low contrast or dim light, etc.

To exploit the quality of its lenses, Leica must move to a Live View feature as soon as possible, something not possible with the present CCD sensor in the M9, though perhaps a preview feature could be added, so that at least when using a tripod one could verify critical focus.
