    Here is another internet M8 Depth of Field Myth busted

    First photo is with my M6, 2nd two photos are with M8. Both are using the same 35/1.4 pre-asph lux at f8, and both are at 1/30th. Both are on the stationary tripod (note that the M8 has tripod threads under the center, M6 has tripod mount on side).

    Focus for the first two images is on the "Scotch" tape wording on the tape on the white comforter, 6 feet away.

    Focus for the 3rd image, or 2nd M8 image, focus barrel was moved exactly 1 stop on the DOF markings towards wider open, further focus of about 7 ft.

    This author found no improved benefits for the DOF barrel move, to match the DOF of the film image.

    Conclusion? Internet Myth Busted. Leica is correct in that no lens adjustment is needed with 35mm M-mount lens on the M8, in order to equal DOF of M FF systems.

    What's an M8? I think you are in the wrong forum, dude, although I like the color on the M6 shot the best.

    The M8 was an American fighter plane from the WWI era. It cost $5000 (inflation adjusted) and required the pilot to wear special goggles to filter out infrared.

    Gee, isn't the Leica M8 the d----l camera that produces wonder shades of magenta where they never existed?

    The Butterfly Cluster vs. The Lagoon Nebula isn't really on topic for apug.
