Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75mm f/2 ASPH Review

The Leica SL System continues to grow and mature. Two and a half years since the SL (Typ 601) launched, Leica’s focus is now on expanding the lens lineup. The 24-90 and 90-280, the first two SL lenses, are the first zooms that I’ve used which offer Leica prime...

A Look at the New Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH

Back in November, Leica announced the Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH, one of the most exotic M lenses made to date, with an amazingly complex optical design and some very exotic glass. It's also the largest and heaviest, weighing in just over 1kg (2.2 lbs). And t...

Leica S (Typ 007) Review

It’s official. Leica has just started delivering the world’s fastest medium format digital camera, and perhaps the most advanced. When I met with the product managers for the new S (Typ 007) at Photokina, I was in awe of all the technology Leica brought to bea...

Leica Q (Typ 116) Review: A Full-Frame Mini M

Back when the X Vario was introduced and initially teased as a mini M, many were disappointed. The X Vario (Typ 107) ended up being a great camera, an X with a zoom, and a stellar zoom lens at that, but certainly not the mini M that many hoped for. Don’t get m...
