I sold my Leica M9 recently so I no longer have a digital camera to test it on, otherwise I would.
Thanks for that statement!
I am not sure if I used the right term for the effect I mean. Some call it "haze" or "flare". I mean this kind of cast across the frame, most of the time with a blueish/purple tint and a drop of the saturation and contrast in the picture.
In fact I never used a hood on it, this may heavily decrease the effect. Gonna give it a try. Do you use an original hood or some 3rd party 40,5mm hood?
It would be really interesting to see how effective the "T" coatings of the Opton Sonnar work in a comparison!
