Undisclosed Lens #3 (test shot on digital).

Inspiration, Leica M9(P)/M-E (CCD Lives!), Q&A, Teaching point, Undisclosed Lens #3

If you have been following along, my last few posts contain photographs created with Undisclosed Lens #3.

So far, I’ve only shot with it on film.

I decided to examine central sharpness, wide open, on the Leica M9.

Here is the original test shot:

And here is the central crop of the above image, at 100%:

(focus was on the “T” of the word “Teas”)

Once again, I’m quite impressed with this lens.

  1. “T” of the word “Teas”. Or “T” of the word “tease”? It is hard not to ask….will undisclosed Lens #3 be disclosed or is it one of life’s little moments of mystery? 🙂

    1. Hi Karen,

      The identity of Lens #3 can be accessed through my “Instruction” page for those willing to make a small donation to the site (I hope people understand that I have to purchase new equipment on my own – so that I remain unbiased – and I also spend a considerable amount of time preparing and publishing the results).

      For those not interested in making a donation, my experiences over the years with (and reviews of) dozens of pieces of gear can still be accessed via the “Cameras, Lenses, and other topics” drop-down menu at the bottom of the page.


  2. Looks pretty good!

    I picked up a 35mm Cron ASPH on Friday (to go on an M4)…..the 50 lux was sitting there….decided I would like to give myself a go with 35mm for a while…:-)

      1. I mean what is the point of testing a lens and then not saying what lens it is? I don’t follow the point of the exercise?

        1. Antonio, I’m going to assume your question is genuine.

          The point is I want to know how this lens performs, since I am using it.

          Regarding the issue around its hidden identity, I’m sure you can figure that out, given my response to Karen above.
