    How about on the rear LCD in the camera quadrant something like this:

    I doubt you’ll be disappointed.. 😉 I have this lens..it’s superb!!

  • Marc,I think the S is an excellent camera,a polished version of the S2,and given that your a fan of CCD rendering I doubt you would be disappointed with an S,I think the AF is better too,I can AF wide open at 3 meters for portraits and its on the money almost every time.

  • David Farkas;6003 wrote: Rather than going with the same Sony 44×33 CMOS sensor, perhaps Leica will work with CMOSIS to develop their own in-house solution, as they did for the M240.

    There hasn’t been too much discussion around it, but the CMOSIS/Leica chip in the M is actually the most advanced CMOS sensor design to date. The pixel well…

    The colors look a bit strange in that last shot because it is in profotoRGB.. it would look better on a good monitor and color space aware browser like safari.

    A quick shot from the S45mm at f5.6… nothing to get excited about but gives some indication of the performance…

    Paratom;6000 wrote: I am also interested. what surprizes me is that the wider lens (35) is lighter, hass less elements and a closer focusing distance. Normally I would expect it the othr way around.
    I have the 35 but thinking to replace it with the 45, because I find 70 indoors to long sometimes and 35 slightly too wide.
    But then for outdoors…

  • As long as the I.Q is up to scratch it won’t matter too much where they source it but CMOSIS seems like the logical step given that they are already involved,I think another benefit could be that it helps Leica avoid a homogeneous look that could if three MF manufacturers use the same chip.

    Photokina is going to be interesting.. 😉

    Although I would be more excited by a summicron portrait lens..

  • Jack MacD;5993 wrote: Marc,
    Two points:
    The Sony sensor is so close to the size of the S I assume they asked Leica if they would buy some. I suspect that the sensor is actually 45mm not 44. ( Worse case Leica does a 2% crop ) So then the issue is frame ratio. Leica stays 3×2 and the others closer to 4×5. The fact that the competition has gone…

    Personally, I’m firmly in the CCD camp, and really not all that interested in going beyond 40 meg.

    It would be great if Leica were to produce a higher meg S camera for those that actually need it, while maintaining a…

  • The medium format world has been given an injection of vitality in the last few days with the announcement from Hasselblad (and allegedly phase one too) that CMOS camera’s are about to be released..

    Lets see how Leica responds to this..

    I have the 35 & 70mm Summarit-S lenses and 5 Hasselblad V lenses. Few of these get used regularly as the 70mm is my go to lens, so the much lower investment in Hasselblad lenses is helpful whilst maintaining a fabulous level of quality. I would like to complete my set with a 24mm too, as…

    If stepping out and you could only carry one lens (may we put weight as a non-issue for the moment?), is there one you prefer over the other, lets say for portraiture?

    It seems the 35 may have the “potential” for a little more distortion at the edges being the wider of the two. (??) Would love for you…
