Leica T and Hasselblad Lunar - Compared!

We've seen some silly comparisons before but this one may take the cake. Of course, some have considered exactly this comparison in reaction to the new Leica T. But in its defense, it is what it is and does not try to simply dress up an existing camera as the Lunar does. Take it as you will... Gizmag's Leica T vs. Hasselblad Lunar comparison! To be fair, they do give it a nice review in the more serious Hands on: A week with the gorgeous Leica T.

Photozone Reviews the Noctilux has just added their latest Leica lens review - the Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. They clearly use a hard-number approach to quantify the technical aspects of the lens, and of course mention the price. Most users of this lens don't really regard any of that, instead going by the defining look that it lends to our images. Nevertheless, an interesting read just to see what's behind that look. As they remind us, it's not the most expensive (or fastest) lens that's the best. You'll recall that we have our own review of the Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH as well.
