This close-medium-far-distance aperture series explores sharpness across the field from f/3.5 through f/13 on the Leica S Typ 006 using the Leica 24mm f/3.5 Super-Elmar-S ASPH:
Presented with HD and UltraHD images to to 24 megapixels (6048 wide) and large crops, all from ƒ/3.5 - ƒ/13.
This is a truly outstanding performance probably unequalled by any lens for the 35mm format. To see it on medium format 45 X 30mm sensor is very impressive. The particularly high cost of the Leica 24mm f/3.5 Super-Elmar-S ASPH is neatly explained by this example. But cost should not be confused with value—this is as good as it gets for a lens this wide (19mm equiv in the 35mm format) and thus the 24/3.5 SEM is surely a must-have lens for the S shooter.
