A few shots with the Leica Summilux-SL 50/1.4

I have one more day with the Summilux-SL 50/1.4, but I’d like to show a few shots and share some thoughts before I start my full review. I really hoped for a lightweight, small 50mm lens with a fast and reliable autofocus. Long story short, that didn’t happen. The SL 50/1.4 is only slightly smaller and less heavy than the mighty 24-90. Autofocus is quite reliable, but slow. There’s also a bright side: the lens renders terrific, is super sharp and has no lens errors.

I’m also playing around with the Novoflex EOS to SL adapter. Some Canon lenses really work, some don’t. More on that adapter soon on this website.

Super sharp, nice rendering wide open.

Great for selfies as well.
