Re: Rangefinder without the Rangefinder

Leica may have boxed themselves in but they are not going to launch a Q sized ILC until they have recouped their investment on the SL2 range. If you launched this new camera you would kill the SL2 and SL2-S. You also have to look at whether the large and heavy L glass would work on a smaller camera.

I suspect that this idea is great on paper but from a business case would never fly. Where Leica perhaps could invest is in developing an L-2 range of FF lenses that are both smaller and lighter than the current L range and fills a number of gaps in the L line of lenses.

And then they could look at launching a smaller Q-sized SL3 and SL3-S range of cameras.
