So, I have been lurking around enough, shot my first roll with my first Leica and made a few initial scans from some frames of TX400 with the 50 1.4 ASPH.
All frames shot wide open @ ISO 3200. The darkest light was with the workers break at 1/15.
That 50mm has NO distortion and absolutely ZILCH flare or ghosting!!!
I am very impressed, how these two things look, compared to my now sold Nikon 50 1.4D and to the 50 1.4G, which I keep for my Nikon bodies.
The Nikon 50 1.4 AF-D has been a ghost machine, shot under these circumstances.
The images are scanned @ 3200dpi, sharpened in Lightroom with secret sauce and exported for web without further post processing.

Tell me, what you think.
Please also have a look at my website, as I will upload more film shots - despite the scanning, I love to shoot film now ;-)
I find, I keep more of the shots, than with digital - strange huh?
