The M10 does not record aperture (no lens info is communicated to camera with M lenses). Apertures as shown are best guess based on what I remember shooting at the time.
Images on this page have color fringing corrected, but no other lens corrections.
Examples from June 2017 at the Saddlebag Lake area just east of Yosemite, shot with the Leica 18mm f/3.8 Super-Elmar-M ASPH and the Zeiss ZM 35mm f/1.4 Distagon (a lens I consider the best available for Leica M).
These images were chosen for their beauty and to tell a story of the place and time of year, but equally impressive is the sensor quality that the M10 delivers, at least under these conditions.

Special emphasis is placed on Leica M lenses and certain Zeiss ZM lenses.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly the Summilux/Summicron/Elmarit choice and/or Zeiss ZM.
- Make better images, a sort of “cheat sheet” saving yourself months or years of ad-hoc learning. Processing parameters are discussed and shown.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
