Leica is too expensive.

Robert Kempen: I notice that Leica is selling the SL faster than they can manufacture it - perhaps the bashers want to discuss this?

Steve Huff calls it the camera of the year (and he owns the A7R2) among many cameras

I also notice the list of people who "had it" has now grown to 45 - my goodness!

Anyway, bravo to Leica - the list of happy owners is growing rapidly and the images sent to "the Leica meet" is testimony to the quality of this fine photographic tool

I love my M240, but the viewfinder on the SL is looking more attractive by the day - Leica please make a similar EVF for the M240!

I've ordered mine in France about 2 weeks ago. Still undelivered. People at camera shops say it's not selling as crazy as the Q...but almost.

Randy Veeman: But Sony marketing says their lenses with out those gaskets and sealing tape are 'weather resistant' too.

Nice to see some REAL lenses made for photographers who make a living out doors in the snow, sand, rain, and dust, and not just in a studio or in fair weather.

Don't forget moon/mars

As soon as I'm home I'll start a teardown of all my Leica lenses.

robmanueb: Good on Nikon for leading the way with the DF, great to see Leica having the common sense to follow. Now if Nikon can build the mythical D400 without video and keep the price down, I would have all my previous faith in them validated.

How long will it take to someone to hack the M262 firmware and reassign Liveview function to the WB button ?
A bit hard to swallow that Leica can lower the price by 2000usd with the same camera...(or worse...a better one: weight/shutter) with just a crippled firmware O_O

dansclic: Battery problem IS à problem. Buy 2 spare batteries, are you kidding ? You pay 500 USD for a small camera and because the battery is too weak you havé to give away another 100 USD ????
Size has little to do. Take the older Casio pocket cameras. My wird has got one. The battery is not big but you CAN make more than 500 shoots with it.
In india, smartphones batteries last more than two weeks...... So,what ?

Manufacturers can do it. I south korea when u buy a smartphone like samsung you get a free spare battery because its obvious u cannot do a full day with one with heavy internet use.
In France...for the same product u need to open ur wallet for the 2nd one.
How can we explain this ? Whats the real cost of a battery from the supplier ? Thing is Sony is happy u go-bank when u realize u need at leat 2 or 3 batteries for security if u are a heavy shooter (i dont even talk about pros requirements).

In reply to:

starwolfy: Seriously considering this to replace my M8. This camera price point may not make sense for people who dont own any Leica gear or lenses. But as I own 4 Leica M lenses (my entire kit consits of 21, 28, 50 and 90mm) this 100% EVF dedicated Leica is very tempting for me. I may be able to have a not so much bigger new option compared to a M240 that could allow me to natively use my M lenses and use some potential and complentary AF lenses when needed. I think this camera is a very clever offering for current Leica customers. It is like 2 systems in one. It's very clever.

Let me add it simply becomes a 5 in one body camera if you also consider Leica owners that own S T R M and now SL lenses.

In reply to:

starwolfy: Indeed: the 85mm F1.4 zeiss is almost the same weight as my complete Leica M lenses kit: 1304 grams.

- 21mm super-elmar ASPH
- 28mm summicron ASPH
- 50mm summilux ASPH
- 90mm summicron APO ASPH

Why compare with a film era discontinued lens ? I compare contemporary lenses with other contemporary lenses.

Maybe better than my Leica glass. But at that size and weight, better be. If only they were pushing harder with the ZM line...
I have Zeiss conquest HD binoculars...it looks the same design as these lenses. The rubberrized feel is very nice indeed. A good news for DSLR users :)

Another computer camera from the A7 line.
Sold my A7ii 2 months after purchase and went back to a M8. I tried Sony but I am now sure that this type of camera , despite being way newer than a Leica M, is just not my type of cameras. Specs doesn't make it all...and I was missing too much that top shutter speed wheel !
