Leica 21mm Summilux ASPH Review Up Very Soon:
I spent last weekend working on my Leica 21mm Summilux review, so that’s why there hasn’t been new content in the past few days on my site. I should be done soon (maybe even by tomorrow), and I would’ve finished earlier but it turns out that it has become larger than I originally planned. It will be one of the bigger reviews with plenty of photos to accompany it. I guess this review is great timing too because there’s a newly announce Leica Monochrom Typ 246 ;). The 21mm Summilux ASPH would make a great lens for the Monochrom Typ 246.
While I’ve been working hard on my 21mm Summilux review, I did take a couple of breaks to shoot with my recently purchased Hasselblad 503CW and I have to say, it’s been quite fun to use. To me, film is not better than digital. I personally love digital photography but I think both mediums are important to photography. Film is just different but a nice change from the faster pace of digital, and sometimes I feel like I need that.
I definitely haven’t taken any great photos with the Hasselblad yet :). I’m still testing out the camera to make sure it works properly and to experiment in general, since the last time I shot medium format film was probably 20 years ago. But even when I don’t take a great photo, I’m super happy with just going through the process of creating that photo. The slower pace of film is nice. There’s a lot of satisfaction in just taking that one shot because even a mediocre photo takes some sort of effort and planning, especially since there are only 12 shots per roll. Plus, the camera does have some unique quirks that let’s just say, take some getting used to ;). I plan to post some scans up soon but I’m waiting to shoot a few rolls first, so I can send them all out at once for processing. So, it may take a while before I get any of those scans up on my site but I will definitely keep you all updated.
Anyway, this post was actually to talk about my upcoming Leica 21mm Summilux review but I guess I drifted off into a completely different topic ;). So, yes my 21mm Lux review will be coming out sometime this week for those who are interested in Leica gear. Thanks for stopping by!
