The Fuji ( body ) will give you three things the Leica can't, or will only in a limited capacity:
1. Real low light shooting capability (if it matters to you)
2. In-camera Fuji color emulations (Astia, Velvia, etc.)
3. Better dynamic range (dramatically better I would say)
4. Very natural looking skin tones
5. JPGs which are straightaway usable.
Ok, that's actually five...

I have (and still use) the 6MP S5 Pro, and had various little Fuji snappers over the years, so the points I am making are not based on opinion, but on experience.

Now, what the Fuji lenses will give you over the Leica, that's a different story. While the Fujinons are not shabby lenses (they still produce them for Hassy), as an M9 owner with various Leica and Zeiss lenses, I know where I stand on that question.

And I agree with you... however, rumor has it we'll be able to use our M glass on the Fuji soon enough. Whether it will be practical for manual focusing remains to be seen.


Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
