    Am I the only one completely and utterly fascinated by this?

    Could some 5D Mark II shooters please download the RAW files provided at the bottom of the link and give us a comparative opinion with say a 50mm 1.4?

    That Nikon guy came across a similar Canolica frankenmonster in HongKong for $4700 (I'm assuming that it doesn't include the Noctilux lens) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7ebhYtm31A

    Aside from looking like the body was left face down on a stove...interesting.

    This is just strikes me as trying to teach a pig to sing. Also, I'm not knocked out by the images.

    With Leica ditching the CCD sensor, I for one am very curious to know how this stacks up with the new CMOS in the M10. Till now there was just no way to compare Leica glass on a FF sensor. I wonder too what the images would be like with a Summilux 35mm. Would one of you buy this already?? For science??
