So we're just supposed to blindly praise Leica here?
The M? Great system, appropriately priced.
The S? Wonderful, small MF system.
Everything else? Overpriced me-too cameras.
Had a quick look at a "well loved**" S and 75 Summarit on friday too.
It feels nice, isn't too heavy, and is pretty easy to use for a camera i have never picked up before.
i do like the 1/1000 sync speed of the CS lenses.
its horrendously expensive, but looks cheap compared to some other MFDSLR options, although its sensor isn't quite as big as some of the other options, but it was designed from the ground up as a dedicated DSLR with dedicated lenses too.
again, i won't be buying one, its too slow for what i use an SLR for, but if i needed a MF camera, i would consider it.
** "well loved" meaning, its owner has used the heck out of it, and was sending it back to Solms as it was having issues occasionally, Leatherette had been superglued down in spots so he could keep using it without sending it back.
as for the T
at my local dealer, the T is $2300 body only, the Fuji XT1 is $1724
but the XT1 has a built in EVF, the T its an optional extra.
the lenses cost more too.
Edge, you are right, its overpriced for what it is, its a "me too" camera.
but it is still very nice, beautifully made, and i am sure Leica will sell a bunch of them.
as i said earlier, if i were looking for an AF mirror less, i would consider it, but probably still wind up with the XT1 or OMD-EM1
