Shootout: Leica 50mm f/1.4 Summilux-SL ASPH vs Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4: Rotten Log (Panasonic S1R)

See my L-mount mirrorless wishlist and Leica M wishlist.

Why am I shooting a rotten log? Well, it’s a nice 'ol log and the background is useful for bokeh. But mainly because I had to shoot a lot of comparisons to get one that works—the Leica 50/1.4 is giving me fits in the field as to focus and focus shift and field curvature.

This series shows much of what has confounded me. I’ll be showing more examples with the Leica 50/1.4 SL that show why it’s so difficult to make a sharp image—and I’ll show a series that exploits its field curvature for beautiful results. Leica 50/1.4 SL owners should find this very useful indeed (and what's to come).

This is a very detailed study of both lenses. In diglloyd L-Mount Mirrorless:
