This page looks at issues with the Leica SL and Leica M240 using Leica M lenses ( Leica M-Adapter-T required for M lenses on the SL):
- With equivalent conversions (white balance and tint), color rendition of the Leica SL vs Leica M240 is shown. The results here were seen to be general results applying to all M lenses and are NOT specific to the lens used here (18mm f/3.8 SEM).
- The Leica SL DNG files from M lenses have lens corrections enforced by Adobe Camera Raw (no option to disable). This changes the field of view and degrades sharpness.
- Adobe Camera Raw has a “double correction” bug in which it is possible to enable lens corrections twice, resulting in a an erroneous output file. This bug has been reported to Adobe.
- Images with and without distortion correction.
