Leica R 50mm f/1.4 Summilux type 1

Postby LotusExcelle » Tue May 18, 2010 3:51 pm

This is shot on a Canon XSi. Lens is the Type 1 Leica R Summilux 50mm. I tend to shoot wide-open so this is an example of a wide-open shot on that lens. As the lens does not report its aperture to the camera, the EXIF data claims an f/2.0 but it is actually at 1.4.

ISO is at 800 and the shot length is 1/5s. Shot freehand.

The lighting was iffy at best and there were neon signs that tinted everything slightly pink. I think it contrasted well with the teal color of the bike. Also I would much prefer to have shot on a full-frame but as I do not have a digital of my own yet I have to make do (and may get a 1.6x anyway).
