I really tempted to go with Leica lenses instead of Canon or PL. I heard the Leica-M lenses are going up in price starting Jan. 1, 2012.
I don't know much about still lenses... The entire Leica-M range covers FF35 right? How large of an image circle do they go?
Just want to be as future-proof as possible....
But the history of getting the first Leica M and R lenses and also Noctilux-M 50mm f/1.0 and Noctilux M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH belongs probably to me.
Even I've lost RED1 warranty, all R1 free upgrades and also main upgrade to Epic X just because of that experiment.
But the early members of the forum know that well.
Even I had a big hope in 2007 that Jim would put some money in development of Leica Summilux-C lenses.
But the things changes today.
Everybody wants to get Leica M or R lenses on Epic and Scarlet.
And I'm always thinking in advance and now I want RED new sensor (aka RED Dragon) as soon as possible (that also has 20.000+ ISO with a super clean noiseless image).
But that's me.
In my "kitchen" I'm cooking a special adapter that can get Leica M and R lenses on Scarlet (that I still didn't make order after Nov. 3rd Canon C300 high ISO shock or f**k)
that means I would be able to swap on Scarlet in a zig-zag way all focal lengths available starting from 15mm to 400mm (talking about the focal range of Leica M & R lenses I have).
Looking forward to see the footage.
Here you ca see my footage test from October 17, 2008, RED1 Firmware Build 3.3 #17 that already has 6,641 hits on Vimeo>>>
Also you can download one R3D snap shot that was shot with demo Noctilux f/0.95 lens in 2008>>
Leica Noctilux M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH (Demo lens/Demomuster) on RED ONE M, Leica Shop Vienna, October 17, 2008.
On the picture at the beginning of the tread Pier 59 Studio has an older version Noctilux M 50mm f/1.0
that has more COMA (a sort of blue ring around the lights at wide open) than the newest, the best and the fastest Noctilux ever, Noctilux M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH.
Here is my old quick & dirty test where you can see that COMA with Noctilux M 50mm f/1.0, wide open @ f/1.0, September 09, 2008>>>
We sure do Sanjin and love you for it... ;)
Now just don't go calling us "OLD" I'm only a child at 46... ;)
Awesome! I might try to look for some extra glass now.
Yes Sanjin, I remember! Leica Noctilux 0.95 rules!
Is that mount going into the store soon?
Great to see such a pairing of great glass with a rich history transitioning into a new realm.
The best part is even more creative choices.
All of us.
