    Any opinions on what SLR size/weight, F1.X lenses are the best for Epic. I have a set of Canon F1.2-2.0 primes now from my still shooting days - is that the best there is?

    Implications of using rangefinder lenses on digital sensors designed for use with SLR (tele-centric) lenses include off-center color shift : http://diglloyd.com/articles/LeicaM/...-RayAngle.html The example is a Zeiss wide on a Leica M9 sensor, but the cause of the problem is the extreme ray angles and mismatch with the sensor microlenses - a mismatch that is worse, with similar results, when rangefinder lenses are used with SLRs. The particular way the problem shows itself in the posted photo is also a result of a mismatch/problem with Leica's in-camera firmware correction.

    There are many more problems, all discussed at length on the diglloyd website. Poke around there if you like technical explanations.

    This is why support for .R3D raw in photo processing programs like Lightroom would be useful. Profiling and batch processing clips for specific lens/sensor matches would be useful in some circumstances.

    I get it now. Bummer . . . that 21mm 1.4 would look sexy on an Epic.

    But I have been using the leica summilux 50 1.4 apsh with great success.

    I think as Jarred said might not be till June... :(

    Was really looking forward to use my Noctilux .95 and 90mm 2.0 lenses this week, but I guess will have to wait till summer.

    Blame Leica on the extended elements towards the sensor... :-)

    We are working on it.
