Re: I think I'm in trouble.....Leica SL2

I think the OP should also look at the CL.  Maybe I'm more of an M-size camera person but the SL2 is a pretty large camera (it's 4x the weight of the CL).  I can't imagine lugging that thing around with a big zoom lens.  My shoulders wince just thinking about it.

The CL provides entry into all the SL/TL lenses as well as all the M-lenses with the M-L adapter.  It does have half the resolution of the SL2 (and a cropped sensor) but unless you print huge or crop a lot, I don't see that as being a huge negative.

IMHO, unless you're a fine art photographer where high resolution is important (ie., medium format), I would take a look at the CL.

Now, of course, if the SL2 really strokes your fancy...it doesn't matter what anyone says, does it?  Go for it!
