Vaseline – Test Shot.

People sometimes write and ask me how I test a given Leica lens + rangefinder combination for focus accuracy.

Well, for near distances I trust the good people at Vaseline.

On a related note, I dislike the grunt work of testing film equipment.  The arduous process of developing and scanning film seems even more arduous when the test results are off.  That is why I rarely sell gear that I know is working well (ha, ha…).

Fortunately, this time everything looks good.

  1. For a moment there I thought you were going to say that you put Vaseline on the lens for some reason. 😛 I’m glad to know that you don’t lubricate the RF with it.

    Curious if you will try the new Voigt 40/1.2. Seems right up your alley.
