Leica 35mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL ASPH Aperture Series: Landslide Hillside and Bend in Alpine Creek (SL3)

re: Leica SL3 vs Sony A7R V: In-Depth Value Comparison

Leica SL3

These aperture series evaluate the Leica 35mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL ASPH from f/2 to f/11 on the 60-megapixel Leica SL3 using a subject at distance.

A serious sharpness-robbing behavior is shown and discussed. Each series confirms the other perfectly, definitively. I am not happy.

In diglloyd Mirrorless /diglloyd L-Mount, this pair of aperture series each confirms the other.

Leica 35mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL ASPH Aperture Series: Bend in Alpine Creek

Includes images up to full camera resolution, plus crops.

I am really turned-off by my discovery in these series. Without extra work, you are guaranteed inferior results due to focus shift. Accordingly, I drop my recommendation for the Leica 35/2 APO. I refuse to work with a lens that all but guarantees that I will not be able to enjoy its optimal performance (superb) without extra care and work.
