Leica M10 Monochrom
Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH

Examples: Mt Whitney Trail (Leica M10M)

The page looks at performance of the Leica M10 Monochrom with the Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH.

Images used the B+W 091 Deep Red filter, a pure red easily by the eye, but also known as “near infrared” (NIR).

Includes images at intermediate sizes up to full camera resolution, plus crops.

Viewing note: users of Retina displays will be hard pressed to understand the comments on noise and detail. To critically review image qualityy, view the full-res images on a display of 110 dpi or so, avoiding 220 dpi and similar displays.
