Old Baldy: Hmmmm, so some more research and it appears that the camera will seemingly work only with M-mount lenses that have bit-encoding on them, as the shutter does not release without the Leica electronic adapter and thus presumably an encoded lens. THAT kills the camera for me, as I'd hoped to be able to use my nice little Voigtlander M-mount lenses on it. Damn shame. :-(
Also, I'd have expected it to have environmental seals so I could take it with me as a travel camera on my motorcycle.
I guess my next camera remains an X-T1 after all. Pity, I really, really, like much of this camera!
The person doing this reviewhttp://www.reddotforum.com/content.php/343-Leica-T-%28Typ-701%29-Reviewhas stacked another adapter on top of M2T adapter and he used various Leica R lenses,.... so it should be possible to use Nikon to Leica M or Minolta to leica M adapters and with that use Nikon F/G or Minolta Mc/Md lenses,... or whatever other adapter that can sit on Leica M mount,...
Kelvin L: Looks nice. It's a shame that material designs such as these (and other digital appliances) outlive their usefulness due to technological obsolescence. I feel sad when I see all these solidly-built Leica M8s, Canon 1Ds and Nikon D1/D2 bodies gather dust because their utility is gone or the electronics are slowly rotting away.
Well, this sounds very nice for those having Leica M lenses:
The lenses of the Leica M-System are arguably the best 35 mm lenses in the world. Thanks to the M-Adapter T, more than 20 of them can also be used with the T-System! The sensor for six-bit coded M-Lenses ensures that the Leica T knows which lens is mounted and can provide full support for functions like exposure metering, aperture priority exposure and manual control.
