Leicaphiles talks about the “3D” pop of Leica lenses, or some orgasmic bokeh from the Summilux or Summicrons. Of course, they tend to use black and white and crank up the contrast to emphasize the pop even more.
Here is a random shot of Larry at Pike Place Market (I don’t know Larry) using a Contax G2 and Zeiss 45mm with f stop probably set at 2.8 or 4, wide open would be f2. I see the 3D, I see the contrast, needless to say the bokeh and sharpness are all there. The best part? This was done on full auto. Auto focus, aperture priority, auto film loading, film advance….
I can hear the grip now, but the camera needs batteries!!! Of course hipster, the thing needs batteries. And so does your iPhone you carry with you everywhere. I don’t see you insist on walking about with an old crank phone.
