Leica S2 examples at Golden Gate Bridge

I’m working intensely on my next major offering, but I took the time today to create a new page of examples for the Leica S2 at the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge, part of my review in DAP.

DSLR users might want to take a look at my Leica S2 review, to get a sense of what might be possible with future DSLRs, if Canon or Nikon ever eliminate the sharpness-robbing blur filter (anti-aliasing filter). What if we were to see a 30 megapixel Canon or Nikon with no AA filter? We’d need better lenses in some areas, but boy would that put even more pressure on the medium format camera vendors.

I also added a page discussing the removal of the anti-aliasing filter from a DSLR, which would move a camera like the Nikon D3x towards the S2 per-pixel resolution.

With accurate focus and a steady camera, the sharpness possible with the Leica S2, even at f/2.8, is absolutely outstanding, along with superb contrast into murky shadows or haze-obscured details. The 70/2.5 Summarit-S ASPH is one very impressive lens, I can’t say that I’ve seen anything better in its equivalent field of view, and that’s remarkable. It really is exciting to see such results.

Leica S2 + Leica 70m f/2.5 Summarit-M ASPH @ f/2.8, 1/30 sec, ISO 320 +1 push + Levels

How about seeing the stripes on the US flag? Can you read the word “California” at far right?! This image was underexposed, pushed +1 stop to effective ISO 640, but than also had a strong Levels adjustment to brighten. So don’t judge the noise here.
