Subject: [Leica] pushing the envelope question

I had to try and photograph number 2 daughter from our house.
With the naked eye the little beach is just visible but people are not.
Mounted the 560/1:6.8 Telyt on the Canon using one of mr.Gandies adapter
Handheld at ISO 1600 through thick double paned glass.
While it was a suprise to be able to recognise my daughter in the
picture,the lack of detail I did not understand.
The markIII not being a full frame sensor makes the telyt magnify like a 730
would on 35mm.

Would that combination be refraction limited at the aperture used of F11.0

Had no time to try something else like no glass in between etc.because I,m
studying hard for a new aircraft type
an Airbus! After flying 74's since 88 and past my retirement have steam
coming out of my ears.
Will experiment later with a 50 summicron R and the 400 telyt which I'm fond
The upload is a full size jpeg at low quality.The save quality made no
difference in resolution.
Best,Simon Jessurun,Amsterdam
