QUICK SHOT: Leica SL and 50 1.2 Hexanon
Hi Steve, Brandon
Please find attached an image I have shot using the Leica SL and a Hexanon Limited 50mm, 1.2. I took the plunge and bought the SL after reading your review. Best choice I have made, I do not miss the M one bit. However, I think I need to stop visiting your great site, due to your almost Jedi like words gently guiding me to purchase new gear. I am going to end up with no money!
My Flickr site is https://www.flickr.com/photos/124324786@N08/ if anyone cares to take a look.
Excellent shot, plus I really like your flickr collection. You’ve obviously got a plethora of great cameras available to use, do you work in a camera shop? (just joking) Maybe you’ll be using the SL from now on but my favourite shot of yours was actually taken with a Canon 5D iii (shock, horror) , wishing you a happy association with the Leica SL but it looks like you can take great shots with any camera, or iPhone.
Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, I will be sticking with the SL for a while, although my dilemma is what lens to keep, what to sell!
Could you tell us a bit more about the subject of this very striking picture?
The shot was taken in Hyde Park and the two women were there urging passers by to repent their sins I believe.
nice shot! flickr says it’s Tele-Elmarit 1:2.8/90 though.
Indeed, I think the camera is making a guess as I am using the M adaptor.
Nice images indeed…especially the ones where the subject is the light itself. I just feel like the B&W ones suffer from an overzealous darkening of the shadows, the color ones look like they’ve been through one too many VSCO/Nik round trips and i notice a general overuse of heavy vignetting.
Definitely you have eye and talent, I wouldn’t hide them behind some photoshop onanism.
Congrats for the camera purchase!
Thanks for your views.
Some really beautiful images on your flickr site. That SL is in good hands.
