Re: Leica T is out, but for who?

What is wrong with Sony A6000 with Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 and Zeiss 16-70mm f/4.0 zoom? This is already well developed system with a lot of lenses of high quality from Carl Z.

My NEX system has been great and I have been looking to upgrade the lenses. Your suggestion is the de-facto upgrade path on Sony APSC if you want better lenses. But compare the sony setup at 24mm and zoom lengths.

Zoom: http://camerasize.com/compact/#551.418,535.393,da,t

Sony has two kinds of APSC lenses at this point. Small and poor quality or huge w/good quality. The pricing within the Sony ecosystem is terrible as well. For a 35mm(eq)+zoom, the a6000+16-70+24mm and the A7 w/kit + 35mm are around the same price. The a6000 is $2,750 and the A7 is $2,800 (current b&h prices).

Basically, if you want excellent lenses the Leica price is roughly double the Sony pricing but substantially more compact. This has genuine value for me and may be what pushes me into this system.

If I knew for certain Leica would build pdaf and image stabilization into the camera on the next generation I would buy this system in a heartbeat.
