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).

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.

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 !

Thorgrem: So APS-C e-mount is good as dead. The last APS-C lens came in 2013....

Yeah. That is Sony. You welcome them. You buy e-mount. You wait the lenses. They ship new bodies every 6 months and still no lenses. With your money they invest in sensors. Suddenly they go FF and say you good bye. ;)

Damn. Where is my 164mm F8.7 ?

Jacques Cornell: Looks premium, but f4.0-6.3? Ugh. I would have liked a shorter range (100-300 or 100-250) and a constant f4 aperture.

You shoot events at 800mm ? Sounds like paparazzo to me :p

Really nice. I've lived in South Korea for years and this reminds me of my time there. Scenaries are wonderful and hiking is very nice. I can recognize the typical korean style everywhere. Colors, style, traditional buildings, attitude of people.
I wish I could visit North Korea one day. It will be like visiting South Korea 50 years ago.

How does the body performs with M lenses ? Especially wide ones ?

It's the best camera ! I use my Leica equipment to take pictures but also as a status symbol. It makes me feel proud to have something others cannot buy. I feel better when I have this feeling of superiority towards "the others". More than a camera, this Leica is an experience of Life. A leisure attitude than just a few amount of people, familiar with ergonomics principles, beautiful design and simplicity can understand.
