Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

During the time my Leica Summicron-M 75mm f/2 ASPH. was at Solms for adjustment I got a Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5 loaner lens.

I created a gallery to show the rendering of this lens. I have to admit, that I like my Summicron more. The Summarit seems to give somewhat harsher images. The Summicron feels ’rounder’, softer. Softer not in terms of sharpness but in terms of the picture impression.

Furthermore there is the advantage of a close focus at 0.7m compared to 1m with the Summarit.

A gallery with the Summicron-M 75mm f/2 ASPH. is upcoming.

Five days in Budapest

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

During my travels in Switzerland, Austria and Hungary, I stayed five days in Budapest.

I several years ago I spent, during a bicycle tour, two days in Budapest, but without a camera. I vowed to come back some day.

I really like Budapest. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The Duna, the parliament, the many old buildings, museums, views. Nice people, what does one want to have more during holidays!

Im am sorry for too many pictures. I have not been able to miss more shots out of the gallery. Any suggestions for deleting photographs are welcome :-).

Unfortunately it’s in german….
