Leica 24-90mm f/2.8-4 Vario-Elmarit-SL ASPH

Aperture Series @ 58mm: Boulders Amid Rushing Water in Pescadero Creek

Leica SL camera firmware v1.10. OIS disabled.

Update 15 May 2016: firmware 2.0 fixes some bugs, improves focusing accuracy, and possibly may actually make compensation for focus shift work (that is biasing in a focus difference based on shooting aperture, which of course does not help if focusing manually wide open and then shooting stopped down).

This medium distance scene looks at focus accuracy and focus shift, with disappointing results (to put it mildly).

The 6000 size is the full resolution image from the Leica SL as processed from the DNG and not resampled or otherwise modified, other than saving as very high-quality JPEG.
