I’d to like see CCD sensors in future Leica M bodies.
Because I believe CCD is superior (in tonality, micro-contrast, general je ne sai quoi vibe) to CMOS with respect to image rendition at base ISO (you know, the kind of environment in which most of us photograph).
Most of you realize this to be true. Even those of you who initially disagreed now see there is a difference, and it favours CCD.
Am I splitting hairs in citing such nuances in sensor rendition?
Not any more so than the frequent discussions that take place around lens rendition.
Come on, you know the superior qualities of CCD befit a company like Leica!
So, if you haven’t already, please consider signing my Open Letter to Leica.
