It is because Leica uses a camera suitable for architectural photography ("leica IIIa / Leica 3aAt the same time), and at the same time, there was no digital camera suitable for architectural photography.
However, digital cameras for architectural photography have finally been released.
This is the LUMIX G1 released by Panasonic.
Previously an article about the company's TZ series (LUMIX DMC-TZ series ), But described the current DSLR as a legacy of the past, which is not particularly suitable for wide-angle lenses because there is a mirror between the lens and the image sensor, so there is no freedom in lens design. . He wrote that the direction of future evolution would be to achieve higher image quality, wider angle, and compactness by complementing image processing to compensate for aberrations in color and distortion and lowering of peripheral light, and increasing the degree of freedom in lens design.
And the appearance of this LUMIX G1. The features are summarized below.
XNUMX Because there is no mirror, there is a high degree of freedom in lens design, compact, and no mirror shock
XNUMX Compensation of each aberration by image processing, and overall excellent image quality can be obtained by lens performance + digital processing
XNUMX. Despite the interchangeable lens, real-time distortion correction is performed, and there is no distortion from the live view screen.
This is exactly in line with the direction I foreseeed. The actual image is also good, especially the LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm, which is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent of 14mm, has no distortion and excellent resolution. In addition, it is extremely compact and has excellent performance.
If you need the movie function, you have the option of GH1. It is surprising that you can buy equipment that can shoot ultra-wide-angle movies without distortion at such a price.
