song for a dollar by cweeks song for a dollar by cweeks
this was a still in the docu i did. i mean ... it wasn't just for the docu as it was made while i was "just shooting some street."

i'm not quite sure what homey was playing but ... it was interesting. the whole sequence is in part three toward the end.

see exif for more information.

Well, I thought it was impossible. In all my experience (which, mind you, isn't THAT much) I've never seen such clarity on a fast, wide-open lens. Usually, it's bokeh out of the ass at anything less than f/2.0, and at a distance of less than, like, 10 feet. Depth of field would be tiny with most fast lenses. It's a 24mm wider angle lens, so while it looks like he's further away, he's probably not much further than the aforementioned 10 or so feet.

But regardless, it's Leica glass, and apparently, it blows my preconceived notions of lens performance out of the water. :)

Nope. f/1.4

Leicas are beyond anything I've ever seen.

I didn't even think getting clarity at that wide an aperture was physically possible. But here, I'm used to shooting with my Canon 50mm 1.8, so what do I know? :lol:

true. but if it was f1.0 it wouldn't look so different.. i suppose this was 24mm f1.4 wide open.

No. Have you ever used a wide aperture prime? It's blur city. The fact you can even make out the background at all means its a considerably smaller aperture. Look down a bit, you can see Chris said that too. He used a manual lens with no electronics.

so what do you think it was then ?

Well, it does look like a wide-angle lens, but definitely with a smaller aperture than f/1. I'd hazard a guess at maybe around 3.5 or so.
