The right sensor dealt with in the right way.
With the right glass covering in front of it.
And at the right size.

AGAIN i've gotta say that with both Canon and Leica people shooting 24x36
digital format for when they want quality Leica is not going to be in the
position of offering a 2x crop of 1.5 crop.

you can get a 1x crop from Canon or nikon.

I predict all Leica ongoing programs on 1.5 crop sensors coming to an abrupt
end. Like yesterday.

The time is right for Leica to do what it felt it needed to do from the
beginning. Preset a non cropped format for its glass.

So a 21 Asph gives you what it was designed to do with film.
