Pros:colors, blurry, sharpening and lampshade. MUST HAVE.
Cons:not having it is like committing a crime.
Opinion:I own the "CANADA" model and use it on fujifilm x-e2 and I find it absolutely a fantastic lens for portraiture but also for landscapes and street to stay in peace. The lens is MF but it is right that the objectives should be. I hate autofocus because because you don't learn to photograph and then the manual focus is of a unique simplicity, indeed it is almost impossible to miss it especially in portraits with differences of an autofocus. Also great in the still life" where the MF is fundamental. The performance is crazy, I get stunned when I see it on the display and even more so at the monitor of my PC Benq. There is little to do in post production other than to correct some skin defects, but often the portraits shoot them in JPEG as fuji is number one especially in Black and White. The blurred is very soft and the bokeh is very pleasant and as it should be. Perfect COLORS and detail is present on the whole photo in a perfect way. Focal length 135mm on FF but it becomes a 200mm on my fuji which allows me to stand even further back at about 4 meters. The dial of the MAF is absolutely moribid is perfect. A DELNOT NOT AVERLO and I highly recommend everyone not to get brainwashed by taking the latest models by paying them a bang for a fake and unreal sharpness. Take a step back because the real photograph is in MF with vintage lenses, Helios, Zeiss, Leica or Pentax that it is, and then the bokeh and yield is unbeatable. I conclude by saying only the fact that it is called LEICA is a MUST HAVE.
Opinion:I own the "CANADA" model and use it on Canon FF ... I think it is the best lens for the portrait: First of all the lens is ONLY MANUAL .... so I find it perfect to handle the PDC on the face, without error! When you look at the photo you take you are amazed ... After seeing it on the monitor you are literally stuck! The blurred is not clear is very soft and the bokeh is very pleasant to the eye, the colors are perfect and the detail is everything. The length 135 on FF . it's perfect and allows you to stay at 2/3 meters for a close-up! The MAF's dial is very long and soft so it focuses without snaps.
Pros:quality and leica yield, blurry, rendered of the complexion.
Opinion:taken for fun, a pleasant surprise was detected; Great for portraits; used on the Z6, allows for easy focus with focus peaking in the viewfinder, effectively overcoming its main "defect" consisting of manual focus; in practice, he supplanted the 135 DC nikon, also a good lens, for all my shots at close range. Very affordable price/quality ratio; The ease of use with mirrorless and Nikon/Canon's entry into the field in this area will probably increase its value.
Pros:unobtainable quality of the lens, colors, blurred by fear, manual focus
Cons:weight not really feather
Opinion:I tried this fantastic portrait lens for the first time a few days ago with an adapter ring on my canon 5d mk2 ... I know it's almost a heresy do not try it on a Leica, but I could not resist.rnGood photo, blurred to 2, 8 from fear, beautiful color rendering, manual focus that, contrary to what you might think, is fast and far from difficult.rnCI only takes a few test shots and then it goes to burst without problems.rnrnGamma dynamic and yield General colors beautiful, the shots made with this lens come out almost always perfect from the room without the need of particular Post ProduzionernAh is Leica and this also creates charm and does not cost so much.rnrnBellissima
Pros:Dimensions, construction, colors, Booken, rnprezzo Charity for a Leica lens.
Cons:Weight, manual focus, which must be precise, but we can do it.
Opinion:It is used at very good prices, from 200 to 300 euro, and for a Leica lens, it is not niente.rnLa construction is in the standard Leica is robust despite being small in size and weighs its beautiful colors that offers 750 gr.rnI are quite realistic and very alive, even the Booken is great, isolates the subject in the foreground and gives it tridimensionalità.rnNon I found particularly defined, but in post production a slight unsharp mask makes images soddisfacenti.rnIo definitely use it with adapter ring Nikon D 600, the focus naturally is manual, the 600 D helps with the arrows and LED achieved focus, of course, does not lend itself to images of action, but for the rest of the council.
