SSD upgrade that takes full advantage of APFS

Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH Aperture Series: Mosaic (M240 + Sony A7R)

Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH

The Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH is the finest lens in the entire line of Leica M lenses. With esentially perfect performance by ƒ/2.8, almost no field curvature and exceptional color correction, it sets the standard for the M lens line.

Thus it seems fitting to test it on the most demanding test subject of all: a planar subject with extraordinary fine detail, a true stress test that reveals the slightest weakness no matter how fine the lens.

A dyadic approach in Guide to Leica:

Aperture Series Leica 50/2 APO: Mosaic (M240)

Aperture Series Leica 50/2 APO: Mosaic (A7R)

This ƒ/2 - ƒ/16 aperture series includes HD and UltraHD images as well as large crops across the aperture series.

This particular 50/2 APO is a replacement directly from Leica Germany received late in 2013. It incorporates improvements that adddress (in part) the flare issues that troubled the “rev A” lens.
