Work Planned for Mountain Trip

Every trip is a working trip for me, but I really enjoy Yosemite and the White Mountains, to which I’m headed tomorrow.

Below are some things I hope to cover/prove/disprove/explore on this trip. I won’t get them all done, but I will gather a lot of material to work through over the course of several weeks. Please subscribe— blogging here and on MPG has been enjoyable, but doesn’t support this site.


  • Definitive answer desired: is the Leica M Typ 240 sharper than the Leica M9, especially in the corners with wide angle lenses at wider apertures?
  • Color rendition differences under outdoor conditions (M240 vs M9).
  • How does color and overall visual impact fare with the Leica M Typ 240 vs Leica M9? Is there some je ne sais quoi missing from the M240 CMOS vs M9 CCD?
  • How about into the sun shots with CCD vs CMOS?
  • Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH: does its impressive MTF show up in a transparency of rendition and clarity in the field? Can it deliver superior results even at f/5.6 or f/8 versus the Noctilux or Summilux?
  • Visual style and subject separation and visual impact of the Leica 50/2 APO ASPH, 50/1.4 Summilux, 50/0.95 Noctilux especially at wider apertures. Bokeh and other effects.

Zeiss lenses


  • Ricoh GR first look in the field (any interest here?)

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8

  • First look, probably used as outdoor lens for mountain sheep, etc.
