Joo, taitaa olla vaan aikaa kulunut hiukkasen liikaa tuon Elmaritin designista, tuon minun yksilöni jälkeen on ilmestynyt yksi uudelleen suunniteltu malli ja vielä siitä parannettu versio. Ja täyden koon kenno on armoton yhtälailla Leitzeille kuin Canoneillekin. Minä myös!
Tuommoista palautetta tuli, suosittelen lukaisemaan Putsin jorinoita, niitä lukiessa tosin tarvittaisiin joku selittämään mitä mikäkin termi tarkoittaa:
"..All current Leica-R lens is suitable for 35mm Film as well as for digital cameras.
If you want to have the best optical quality second-hand I would recommend newer Leica lenses that are made since 1996. This lenses have newer coating on the glass elements and some improments on design".
"There seems to be a global consensus that lenses designed for image capture on film are unfit for the same image capture on solid-state devices like ccd-sensors. The principal argument is related to the qualities of the capture medium...Nothing what has been said above can be interpreted as a dictum to design lenses that are specifically adapted to the characteristics of the CCD capture. A lens that is designed for optimum performance for film-based image recording (high resolution, flatness of field, good contrast) will produce excellent imagery on film and on CCD-sensor. A good design for film capture will be a good design for solid-state capture too!
The fact that captured images will be stored as digital sampled images, has no relevance for the lens design. The only issue might be the determination of the cut-off frequency of the MTF curve to stay within the Nyquest frequency. But you cannot design a lens where the MTF value drops from a certain value to zero. If that could be done, we would not need low-pass filters to remove the high frequency content of the MTF function. All the algorithms developed for post-processing the digital file (removal of noise, increase of sharpness, adjustment of colour, optimization of the tonal scale of the electronically captured images) operate on the image file that is captured by lenses of classical (film-based) designs."
