Sony a7 III ILCE-7M3 with Leica Lenses

Electronic Viewfinder: helps you compose and see depth of field, gives you a visual exposure and most of the time is sharp enough to focus manually without focus assist. I…

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.

Well, since a friend let me use his Sony camera for the weekend…  I had to make some comparison and tests right?  Here is a try at emulating the color I typically see from my Leica M. One thing that I must mention, is that I’m using Leica M glass. Both images below were shot…

Sony a7sII vs Leica M Typ 240 vs D4

I’ve used it to support a Nikon D5 and D3s with a newest Nikon…
