Recent examinations of performance of the Fujifilm GFX100S versus Sony A1 and Leica SL2 and Nikon D850 make me wonder whether the 60-megapixel sensor of the Leica M11 with the very best lenses (a very few) might be highly competitive.
And then there is the rumored Leica M11 Monochrom, which should be able to outperform the GFX100S on sharpness given a good enough lens.
By “best lenses”, I do not mean the Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH, which has troubling performance limitations. Rather, I mean certain Voigtlander offerings and likely the Leica 35mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH and the Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon (still ranked as the best overall M lens of all). Not very many, perhaps 3 or 4 lenses will be up to spec. Possibly the incredibly sharp Voigtlander FE 65mm f/2 APO-Lanthar (with lens adapter) might do very well too, if ray angle issues are minimal enough. Ditto for certain longer focal lengths.
The trick is getting
ahold of the M11. On my to-do list. UPDATE: will have the M11 and lenses on Monday Aug 8.
