Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH

M240 vs Sony A7R with Leica 50/2 APO-Summicron (Mosaic)

The Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH is Leica’s highest performing optic in the M lens line. The question naturally arises as to whether an alternative camera body can extract more image detail.

The 24-megapixel Leica M Typ 240 sports a full frame sensor with no anti-aliasing filter. Together with the 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH, it represents the finest imaging quality ever available from Leica in the 35mm format. The combination costs about $14200.

The 36-megapixel Sony A7R is about $2300 and like the Leica M240, has no anti-aliasing filter. But it does have a sensor with a filter cover glass which can impair image quality at wider apertures.
