In reply to:

RStyga: There is no cost saving (and no logic) behind a plastic mount. Are we certain it is plastic and not metal painted black? Just asking... it'd be very strange to have a plastic mount!

I still don't understand why using a non-metal mount ring...

For those who stupidly insist that the camera is not so big blah blah, it's the person holding it small and has small hands blah blah... have a look here:

Good move from Leica. However, the ridiculous price of the T lenses excludes considering this camera, the price of which has dropped to almost reasonable levels now, plus some people actually do not like touch screen UIs and a largish body with questionable ergonomics. I have an iPhone and iPad, no more touchscreens for me, thanks.

alextardif: Underwhelming ...err, no, disappointing. IQ looks same as my old A99. In fact, remarkably similar. Which isn't to say it's bad on it's own... it just not good by 2015 standards considering all of the recent releases especially considering the size, price, and ergonomic nonsense. FAIL.

It's a waste of time to try to argue about something obvious. Leica has an OK 24MP sensor and that's about it. No 'magic', no 'special' colour, no nothing. Of course, people, i.e., Leica fanatics, can dream of whatever makes them happy and can buy or just drool over SL or any other mediocre Leica camera to their heart's content. Personally, I wouldn't spent too much time about it or try to have a constructive conversation with them. They are too biased to make sense.

Any information on the digital split image focusing of this camera?

Read the hordes of comments here and elsewhere as well as the test shots at DPR and elsewhere... if you can remove your Leica glasses and blinkers before you do.

A7 and RX1 don't have particular moire problems- and you can always apply a very soft blur filter to remove moire. Leica's IQ is not moire-free soft, it's rather low-IQ soft.

In reply to:

Frank_BR: It's easy to blame Leica for banding, but I suspect the problem is within the sensor that Leica purchases from third parties. Banding is basically the result of interference of clock and control signals over the analog signals (image signals). In a CMOS sensor, the analog amplifiers and A/D converters are internal to the sensor, so the interference that causes banding has to be controlled already at the sensor design. It is precisely here that Sony sensors stand out, and explain why Sony and Nikon cameras have virtually nonexistent banding. When it comes to banding, Leica and Canon are in real trouble because they don't want/cannot use Sony sensors.

It's not the first time that the "mighty" Leica delivers substandard products (see M series sensor issues, buffer issues, LCD issues and the list goes on). I laugh every time Leica fanatics rant about Leica build quality and reliability.

I second that. I think, however, that the IQ is very slightly better than A99, and about the same level (not quite, though) as RX1 and A7; still, yesterday's news.

Kamox: I've handled a Leica Q and I found it fantastic: practical, great EVF, great lens, low noise, high detail even @ iso 6400 and f/1.7. Really a joy to use, good ergonomics. Also the price is quite fair, considering what you're getting.
This one, however, is another item in the long list of pointless digital Leica products. A mirrorless camera loses the mirror in order to be compact and small.
This is bigger, heavier and less discreet than a DSLR.
There's no reason to buy it.

Keep dreaming.

Some other Leica fanatics compare it with medium format cameras incl. S and RZ!... unbelievable. You cannot compare with a DSLR like 5D just because it suits you; it's NOT a DSLR. You need to compare it with DSLMs. You're something else, aren't you?

In reply to:

art99: Is Sigma gonna make a few Art lenses for this ?
I predict the price will drop like a brick in water when this ain't gonna sell well. Now if the price was under 2K I would feel much better as I would think I ain't paying 5.5K more for the label.

Maybe because Leica is too small to afford a serious production like in place, plus I doubt that their sales are anything but completely insignificant in the greater scheme of the industry.

TN Args: I've changed my mind about how big it is. It is big but not huge. Check this: http://camerasize.com/compact/#557.479,639.496,595.286,wa,t

Shame on DPR for creating an optical illusion.

Remember, the A7 is a miniaturisation miracle. It is not the measure of 'bigness'.

I think you're hallucinating...

In reply to:

Paul Petersen: I will most likely never own a Leica, but I think this camera has a place in the Leica universe. It seems to adapt to most of the lenses they make. This would allow M users to deploy all their lenses on a modern viewfinder focusing full frame body. Plus it is much smaller than the S and will adapt its lenses so it may be a back up to that models owners especially for video.

Why on earth being smaller than a medium format camera has any relevance here? You Leica followers are unbelievable! Did they pay you or something to speak such nonsense?!
