Actually i was looking for some consolation after I lost the biggest bargain of my life. So I mounted the 135mm 2.8 Leica trying to convince me I didn't need that extra stop on the Planar.

Gues this is the sharpest 135, did you use it wide open?

Think You used an old trick to make the picture sharper!
By giving it a litle front focus.

Its something I read. If you place your DOF in a manner that your subject is at the end of the sharp zone. It apears sharper.

As the Dof 1/3 befor and 2/3 behind the sharp point you need to frontfocus a litle bit to have this effect.

To bad I lost the article
