Leica T: Image samples using modern M lenses

Posted on by Mike Evans

Leica's new T plays extremely well with all the modern M lenses I tried during the recent test. I have no reason to think that many legacy lenses will not perform well but only modern lenses with six-bit coding will transmit lens information to the camera and hence to the metadata. This gallery of images relates to the test of the Leica T camera which you can find here:
