Last week or the week before he started a thread "Canon needs to make more L lenses" and then linked his gear list. Now, he's switching to Leica. Yeah, there's a good idea lol.

...im planning to sell all my canon gears and move onto either leica s2 or m9, I got tons of canon L lens and dslr, and really planing to list all my L lenses on ebay, to get my hands on one of these badboy, any suggestion weather I should pull the trigger or not, any leica owner out there, that's more satisfy over leica then canon?

I'm willing to buy a pair of lens that you will be selling--if you've decided to start fresh.

PS: in April 2011 you had 6 L-lenses, now (June) you got 20. Are you doing something else than buying gear?

Not to pile on here, but when I read that I got scared for what an addiction to buying gear could do. I just got a 5D a week ago, and I am drooling over lenses I want to get for it. MORE MOAR MOAAAAR!

I would not even have the time to shoot with each of those new lenses in that amount of time. At least, not long enough to make the choice to move on to something "better".

Not to be a jerk here, but with the gear you have, I would have expected a far sweeter "gear shot". That is like 30k worth of gear. This should be a 30k shot. ha.

oh...this is just your "L couch"....the spot where you keep your L's? You had the time to pull out all of your lenses and set them up tallest to shortest, but you didn't have time to set up an interesting shot? You have every possible lens at your exposure, the shot should have at least been sharp.

It makes me think of my friends who tell me I should get a double bass drum for my drum kit. I tell them that if I can't master one, what makes them think I can master two?

Spend the same type of money you did on these lenses on a vacation to take some great shots. Use them.

jfc!

in all honesty i think it's a terrible idea. aren't there cheaper leicas? while i understand the appeal and would love to own it, they are just obscenely overpriced.

get a film leica if you're hellbent on one...but nothing will replace the image quality of your setup imo.

call me curiouse but why 2 70-200 VR II ? add to that the massive ammount of duplication you have in your setup with the mix of canon L primes, zooms and the small collection of sigma lenses you seem to have aquired somewhere along the way
