My good friend Raaj has just posted some sample images on his site from the new Leica M (240).
As regular readers of my site know, I’ve posted extensively about CCD vs. CMOS sensor rendering at base ISO. Notably, I’ve expressed concern that the move to a CMOS sensor in the new M(240) would equate with a loss in image quality at base ISO, while there would be gains made in high ISO photography, and in movie-making.
Are my concerns well-founded? I don’t believe that question can be answered for certain based on web-sized images, but I’ll let you be the judge. Incidentally, Raaj tells me he will try to post some scenes that were shot with both the M9 and M(240), using the same lens. That will be most interesting to see.
