Comparing a Leica M 240 to a Sony a7 Mark 3 – Review

  Sony is in ways, the leader in Digital Sensor (Imaging) technology and keeps going strong with cameras such as the Sony a9 and with more lenses releasing year after year, they are finally a good match. I really like my Leica M, the small factor, small lenses, overall a very small system that offers…

Sony a7sII vs Leica M Typ 240 vs D4

This will be a short comparison of files from these cameras. Mostly interested in these: High ISO: The D4 and D3s, along with the Sony a7sII  have better performance than the Leica Typ 240. But when it comes to color saturation and separation at lower ISO, the Leica wins. So in some or one system…

Nikon D3s vs D800 vs GX85

So…  Why older tech? Because right now, you can purchase a D3s for around $1400 USD. It has 9 FPS with constant AF. What other 35mm Full Frame can be purchased at this time for that price? Fuji XT2 is fast, but the lag on the EVF is cumbersome when doing high speed action. You…

Micro Four Thirds – 5 Generations

I was one of those who rushed in 2009 to get an Olympus E-P1 camera. It looked vintage, was small and offered great image quality compared to others in the size category. In fact, the photos were sharper than what I was getting with my Nikon D100. Seems the lenses were sharper than the Nikon…

Came-TV Boltzen 55w LED Zoom vs Arri 650w Fresnel

Focusable LED Battery Powered video light. This is a very affordable good option compared to a Dedolight. Works on FP Sony type batteries and can also run on AC power. Everything is included in the 2 piece kit, even a plastic case to travel. I tested it at 4800K instead of the advertised 5600K. All…

Summicron M vs Elmarit M 90mm

I keep reading on the forums that everyone loves the Elmarit M because its smaller and sharper. I simply wanted to find out for myself and share my findings to those who want to know. My version of the Cron feels much better made than the Elmarit M, it feels more precise but yes it…

Voigtlander Ultron 28mm f/2 Leica M Mount Samples

I purchased a 35mm lens some months ago, then again another 35mm only to find that 50mm and 35mm are so close and not worth having in MY opinion. So, I wanted to try a 28mm lens and thought of the Zeiss 28mm f/2.8 in silver but found a good deal on a new Ultron…

Color Skopar vs Summaron vs Biogon

All 35mm lenses, here we have the least expensive contender Color Skopar 35mm Pancake PII Then we have the vintage Leitz Wetzlar Summaron 35mm 2.8  And finally the Biogon C 35mm 2.8 ZM in silver In the beginning I can say the Biogon C is sharper and has better rendition of blurred backgrounds, while the…
