On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1509 comments in total)
In reply to:

starwolfy: Seriously considering this to replace my M8. This camera price point may not make sense for people who dont own any Leica gear or lenses. But as I own 4 Leica M lenses (my entire kit consits of 21, 28, 50 and 90mm) this 100% EVF dedicated Leica is very tempting for me. I may be able to have a not so much bigger new option compared to a M240 that could allow me to natively use my M lenses and use some potential and complentary AF lenses when needed. I think this camera is a very clever offering for current Leica customers. It is like 2 systems in one. It's very clever.

Let me add it simply becomes a 5 in one body camera if you also consider Leica owners that own S T R M and now SL lenses.

starwolfy: Indeed: the 85mm F1.4 zeiss is almost the same weight as my complete Leica M lenses kit: 1304 grams.

- 21mm super-elmar ASPH
- 28mm summicron ASPH
- 50mm summilux ASPH
- 90mm summicron APO ASPH

Why compare with a film era discontinued lens ? I compare contemporary lenses with other contemporary lenses.

Maybe better than my Leica glass. But at that size and weight, better be. If only they were pushing harder with the ZM line...
I have Zeiss conquest HD binoculars...it looks the same design as these lenses. The rubberrized feel is very nice indeed. A good news for DSLR users :)

Another computer camera from the A7 line.
Sold my A7ii 2 months after purchase and went back to a M8. I tried Sony but I am now sure that this type of camera , despite being way newer than a Leica M, is just not my type of cameras. Specs doesn't make it all...and I was missing too much that top shutter speed wheel !

Thorgrem: So APS-C e-mount is good as dead. The last APS-C lens came in 2013....

Yeah. That is Sony. You welcome them. You buy e-mount. You wait the lenses. They ship new bodies every 6 months and still no lenses. With your money they invest in sensors. Suddenly they go FF and say you good bye. ;)

Jacques Cornell: Looks premium, but f4.0-6.3? Ugh. I would have liked a shorter range (100-300 or 100-250) and a constant f4 aperture.

You shoot events at 800mm ? Sounds like paparazzo to me :p

Really nice. I've lived in South Korea for years and this reminds me of my time there. Scenaries are wonderful and hiking is very nice. I can recognize the typical korean style everywhere. Colors, style, traditional buildings, attitude of people.
I wish I could visit North Korea one day. It will be like visiting South Korea 50 years ago.

How does the body performs with M lenses ? Especially wide ones ?

It's the best camera ! I use my Leica equipment to take pictures but also as a status symbol. It makes me feel proud to have something others cannot buy. I feel better when I have this feeling of superiority towards "the others". More than a camera, this Leica is an experience of Life. A leisure attitude than just a few amount of people, familiar with ergonomics principles, beautiful design and simplicity can understand.

justmeMN: No red dot, no Leica logo, no sale. :-) The purpose of buying a Leica is to show off the fact that you have an expensive camera. :-)

Exactly. And that's the reason why i bought 10.000+ euros worth Leica equipment. Now, we such a camera around my neck guess who gets the ladiiieeessss ;)

MPS Photographic: Using a $5950 Leica 28mm F1.4 lens doesn't automatically make you a great photographer. Using a $135 Nikon 50mm F 1.8D lens doesn't automatically make you a bad photographer.

However, if your attitude is "Only rich a-holes buy Leicas", or "Nikons and Canons etc. are only fit for the common rabble", then that automatically makes you a douche photographer.

Disclosure: That lens costs more than my car, computer and photography gear combined.

Using a $5950 Leica 28mm F1.4 lens doesn't automatically make you a great photographer.

RRJackson: When I see things like this it always reminds me of the story of the Marquis de Condorcet. Fleeing the French Revolution and certain death, he stopped at a tavern for a meal. He asked for an omelet and when asked how many eggs he wanted, his reply was, "A dozen." His answer betrayed his station and he was returned to Paris for execution, although he was found dead in his cell before he could face the guillotine.

I prefer to travel with bags that seem horribly cheap. Saves me trouble in the long run. I actually wish someone would build a digital camera that looks like a disposable Kodak Funsaver. Something I could take into deepest, darkest Don't-Rob-Me-Istan without it attracting attention.

That's the reason why I use sand paper systematically on all my Leica gear so it looks rubbish and I feel more safe.
