On Firmware
1

Yes, I know, this is just a rant. Nobody in this forum can change anything on the situation. But still…

Leica yesterday released version 3.0 of the SL firmware, with some nice improvements. Nothing really groundbreaking for the industry, but catching up with competition. Highlights for me are: improved AF eye, face, head, body recognition and tracking, improved HEVC video compression, enhanced low-light live view, image overlay, wave form monitor and more. And of course, they already had a high-res pixel shift modus before.

In contrast, Nikon seems to be super old fashioned. Yes, the AF _works_, but gosh, it's so complicated. Yes, overall, the Nikon Z cameras are totally usable, but they also lack innovation. And I'm super impressed what Leica is able to do with a 2 year old camera.
