What I missed in the whole discussion about digital is the matter of
the lenses. One of the F68-group, who is a specialist for the
technical side of Nikon, Leica & Canon, explained that , if you want
to have the benefit of 5 megapixel or higher, you need specific
designed lenses. Especially for landscape this was absolutely
necessary; he organised a workshop where the different newest, prof.
dig. camera's were tried out. The results were really convincing for
the special designed Leica-lense of the Digilux2; especially in
respect to landscape; w.o.w. not a matter of 'does not hold the fine
detail', but a matter of lense-design. (it was a bit of a surprise
that the price of the Leica looks reasonable :-) Does anyone has
equivalent experience, or is it just the Leica-myth??
