Ah, but you don't know what you're missing!

(Some) Leica glass is designed to cope brilliantly
with flare.  Indeed, it is precisely because of this
that I dumped my Nikon gear in 1998 and went Leica!

Some examples from my Southeast Tasmanian project
from last year.  All of these following are seamless
360-degree panoramas shot with a Leica Fisheye-Elmarit




There is simply no way the Nikon 16mm equivalent would
have coped with the sun directly into the lens.

Which is why I was interested in how well the R 19mm
and especially the new R 50mm Summilux handled the sun.
