From Sony to Leica?
Nov 13, 2013

Hi all,

I've been using NEX for a few years now, and I find myself mostly preferring to use manual focus (even with system e-mount lenses).

With the announcement of the A7/A7r, I've been considering getting a Summilux 50mm ASPH -- so the A7/A7r with the 50 Lux  would be my everyday setup, and I could use the 50 Lux on my NEX7 for narrower FOV.

But then I wondered -- if I'm going to mount an M lens on a Sony body, should I actually get a Leica M body?

I do like Sony's WYSIWYG/EVF philosophy. Let's just say Sony and Leica had the exact same sensor -- would you still prefer the Leica body to the Sony? If so, why?
