    Sony A7II Loxia 50 vs. Leica M240 50 APO

    My article comparing image quality of the Sony A7II with the Zeiss Loxia 50/2 lens and the Leica M240 with the Leica 50/2 APO Cron is live.

    Battle of the Champions: Leica M & 50 APO vs Sony A7II & 50 Zeiss Loxia by Brad Husick | STEVE HUFF PHOTOS

    Quick summary: there's very little difference in image quality.

    Excellent review, Brad and plenty of food for thought. Thanks for sharing.

    I use Leica M (monochrom) and A7/R and the Monochrom still beats the A7 (and often the A7R in overall image sharpness) across a range of lenses, but in the sweet spot - 50mm - the A7R is untouchable. It beats the Monochrom from centre to corner, comfortably. A7R + 55mm FE is quite something. Just breathtaking and the 50 Loxia is fairly similar in resolution I understand.

    I'd be very interested to see any comparison at 35mm, for example.

    How does the AA 50 compare with the Loxi on the A7 II?

    This isn't very surprising to me given how great the ZM50 is/was. Many preferred it to the non-APO Summicron for resolution. Most thought it gave about 90% of the sharpness of the APO version at 10% of the cost.
