Leica should have asked Sigma for allowance to mount their new Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM as a fixed lens on the Leica body. This would have been an adequate lens-body combination for a brand like Leica.
I have the new 35mm Sigma and I love it. Can't wait to see the 120-300 in real. The delay is ok for me, so I have more time to save the money! :-) Build and image quality of the new Sigma lines is really fantastic.
Glad to have the 6D that comes with integrated Wifi and an App that does all this and much more! :-)
Regardless of all other features of the Leica S: this is just the best looking and best designed DSLR I have ever seen. I doesn't look like a chewed and spit out bubble gum like all the Canons and Nikons. The Leica S looks solid and sturdy, plain and noble - and not because it has a red dot on it.
This will be my next DSLR. I started with a 550D and the 6D seems to be the next logical step for me. Most of my lenses can be used on the 6D, too. I only have to replace two EF-S lenses - of which one of them I wasn't convinced either. The things I like most on the 6D are:- compact design- low light capable focusing points (we will see how they perform)- 20 MP is absolut sufficient- integrated GPS and WifiI hope there will be a reasonable price for this DSLR.
