Panasonic S1R- the "do-it-all" Camera Body

I've had the body over a year now, and it's a versatile do everything camera, and for some reason it's "Special Order" only at B&H Camera.

In my heart, I lust for the Leica SL2 but my Visa Card says Panasonic S1R.

Do I give up much by having the S1R and -not- the Leica SL2?

I really don't think so... I understand the high-end German product, but I'm really not a Pro Photographer... just a Prosumer kinda guy.

I've used both manual focus and auto focus lenses from Sigma, Panasonic, and Zeiss.

Yes- it's a heavy, substantial piece of gear.. but I like that. Often, I attach a small 50mm Zeiss ZM lens and it's less of a weighty proposition to carry when I often walk 6-8 miles with this set-up (with a wider Zeiss 35mm in the cargo pants pocket and a spare battery) and I'm light and nimble.

Video? I never use it -nor- do I know how. Strictly stills camera.
