  1. #1 Leica R 19mm f/2.8 Elmarit-R Version 1 Color Fringing 
    It appears that the Version 1 of the 19mm f/2.8 Elmarit-R has some problems with color fringing in high contrast situations. Check out the pictures from this review: http://www.overgaard.dk/leica_19mm_e...version-1.html

    Has anyone else, who owns a 19mm V1, experienced these problems? Could anyone post some hi-res pictures of high-contrasty scenes? Has somebody tried to remove these Color Fringes in Post?

    As the V2 of the 19mm is much more expensive, I would really like to know, if it is worth the extra bucks.

    Would really help me a lot with my decision, if someone could report their experiences.

    Thanks,

    Oliver

    Every Leica r I have used has a good amount of fringing.

    Hey Ben,

    which lenses do you have? Have you tried to remove the fringes in post?

    Yes it will fringe in high contrast scenes, although you have to be peeping pretty hard to really notice it in an edit. You take the good with the bad with these lenses.

    Used about 10 or so of them. You sort of have to shoot around it or embrace it.
