Sony NEX-5 vs Leica M8

Here is another shootout comparing the Sony NEX-5 and the Leica M8. The lens used was the Zeiss 18mm f/4.0 ZM. The Sony 16mm Pancake was also used so we can compare the Zeiss against it. All shots are by Boris from Wild-Places.com.

  3. Can you please check if ZM18 will vignette with 49 mm filters?

    Even if you don't have step-down rings & such filters - can you please try with 47mm round hole in dark paper maybe one cm from lens surface.

    Two sample photos wide-open + f/8 would be really great.
    Thanks.
