On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1495 comments in total)

Yeah, it does look like a German photographic Leica product: monolithic, Big-stone-size, and costing as much as a 645D/Z. It takes a Leica design team to create a DSLM so large and awkward that cancels out any DSLM advantages. Copycat of A7 series with a few twists, Leica? Talk to Hasselblad... Imagine fitting a tiny M lens on it, how ridiculous it will look... stupid.

Exactly what was "missing" from the market: A grossly oversized and overpriced DSLM that has the design lines of a Sony A7 series! What other company could do that "feat" than Leica..

Does it produce uncompressed RAW (like the new Sony A7S II)?

Does the RX1 produce uncompressed RAW? The reviews had reported in the past vastly superior RAW IQ but I'm wondering about whether it's uncompressed RAW?

In reply to:

roserez: Any word on WHEN lossless raw will be available for the A7R II? I'm not buying until I see it.

Please announce, also, the firmware update supporting uncompressed RAW for the the A7 II, too!

Is there a FW update to allow uncompressed Raw in all Sony A7 series models?

Maybe they need to rethink their product naming...

RStyga: To all of you standing in awe at the Leica S photo(s), would you be able to tell the difference if by accident (or not) DPR had posted photos from a different MF camera? This is a rhetoric question.

It was, I repeat, a rhetoric question.

RStyga: The incremental upgrades of Leica are nauseous... 37.5MP cropped medium format in 2015 at £13K is a joke only Leica can "create"... a blast form the past for future rich & stupid.
Oh, sorry, I forgot! £13K is really cheap for Leica! A bargain!!

You can use Leica M lenses on most systems, as well as R lenses, just not on Leica digital cameras for pretty apparent reasons (not to you, obviously).
Anyway, likewise, I'd say that *you* don't have an argument and are a Leica follower, post on most news threads on DPR where the subject is about Leica. People can judge for themselves whether Leica makes sense. I think it does not, not at this price. They are obsolete, and the pricing is offensive.

@Robert Kempen
I agree, Leica is in a different class, that of (usually rich) fools and fashion victims who are content with simplistic arguments and vague notions such as 'build quality' and 'tradition'. That's why conversing with you using arguments is near impossible; and because I'm not interested in repeating arguments for yet another time against a brick wall, read AlanG's comments, as a sample, here:

And good night...

@HowAboutRAW
645Z is expensive? A price of $7-8K including lens, i.e., cheaper than some leica lenses alone! Are you on drugs?? People, can you get more obsessive with your Leica branding than this? You're a wondrous bunch...

Your comments are missing the point (as usual) which is £13K...

RStyga: The RF film Leica cameras are nice but I'd personally prefer the Zeiss Ikon (sadly, out of production, I think, but still available new for $1100-$1500) which is a magnificent camera with the highest standard of build quality and better ergonomics (handling, film change, volume design & weight) than Leica M RFs.

Modern Zeiss Ikon were made by Cosina, true, but they are Zeiss, not Cosina; "rebadged" implies cheap and nasty for some. Cosina makes very high quality gear and according to specifications. Zeiss specifications are very high. Zeiss trusted Cosina to undertake the Ikon project and they performed admirably, as expected.

AlanG: The sensor cover glass in this model is notorious for spontaneously developing cracks. Then it came out that the sensors also suffer from corrosion over time. The tripod mount is attached to the baseplate. The baseplate is not well secured to the body. It turns out that when the camera is on a tripod, the brittle body casting can break where it attaches to the baseplate and the camera can fall.

Leicas had issues where the neck strap lugs came unscrewed due to oversights in manufacturing. Many M8s & M9s have had shutters that failed. The issues on the M8 are numerous. The LCD can develop a "coffee" stain. When the LCD fails, it can't be replaced. I'll stop here.

@AlanG
It's all so true. You're the man. Buyers (incl. Leica-trend victims) need to hear that digital Leicas are not what they are cracked up to be, and sometimes much worse than the competition. I'd go one step further, with caution, adding that even in the film market cameras like the Zeiss Ikon were reviewed and found better featured than comparable Leicas. Leica needs to wake up and design better and cheaper cameras.
