  1. If you like the S there's nothing like it. The SL2 is cool but I'd say unexceptional compared to M or Q2. Being in the Leica ecosystem it's hard to choose and probably a combination of M/Q/SL/S is still a way to go.:). Since you are OK with the GFX size the S system will be not much different -- the body might be a bit bigger but the lenses are big too.
  2. I have the SL2 and the 007 (and also a 907x and tons of Ms). The reason I keep the SL2 is the video for the kids. It's amazingly smooth because of IBIS and I'll keep using it and its SL successors until the kids grow up. The 007 is super fun, I got all the 10 S lenses, and it's worth taking out once in a while. Both systems are heavy but the SL2 is certainly more attuned to travel with many lenses, especially now with the light and awesome Sigma ones. The Sigma zoom, 28-70, is the exact size of an AL APO Summicron but lighter and almost as good as the 24-70. The 24/3.5 is super-small an
  3. The S never fails to produce perfect images. It's the ultimate bifurcation point of the Leica world that you can either have a highly portable M or heavy but picture-perfect S. It's hard to see a better answer than "both" here.
  4. I saw it too and think this is his way to say he likes it.:). First of all, the M10-D was not the first screenless Leica, so when Dr Kaufmann talks about hearing it for the first time, he probably means the Edition 60 -- which became the star 60th anniversary of M3 (and the papers for those are signed by him). The M-D that followed was a mainstream version of that, so that might be also what he meant by "the D".
  5. I have the Edition 60 that has started the whole Leica addiction for me. I couldn’t afford it when it came out, so my first Leica was the original M10, eventually upgraded to M10R (many Leicas after), and I got the Edition 60 after that. Now the question is whether to get the M10-D in case it’s the last one…. But after the M10R it’s harder to justify.
  6. Around the time M10-D was discontinued there was a murmur that it was the last screenless Leica. I don’t recall how reasonable that rumor was. However, M10-D had become exceedingly rare. What do we make of it? Does it confirm the rumor? If you are a fan of screenless Leicas, would you try to get an M10-D now?
  7. Yeah I’m in a prolonged honeymoon phase where I carry the silver-red M9-P on a red strap, with a Noctilux, also silver, and enjoy the colors. The other Leicas give it a chance. But the M10R is still coming for the low light and high res, and M10M for the texture or harsh light or rainy days…
  8. Au contraire, Che Guevara, Spanish Civil War, and the Red Banner over the Reichstag are always happening today.
  9. I'm sorry to point out that this is against the LUF best practices, which read: "Get the most beautiful thing you like and also the thing you wanted to get if you were getting the cheaper thing." So the silver M9-P and the lens combo. The silver M9-P is a thing of beauty all by itself.
  10. Within a factor of 10, agreed:). I still prefer the classic silver version, using one since it came out. But the M9, Edition 60, all make great photos too, so M10-R is just a new choice of the Leica look palette. I use it for low-light, hi-res needs (a concert in the evening from afar, eg as yesterday at the Cotati Accordion Festival). I might prefer the M9 on a cloudy day to add punchier colors to reality. Or a monochrom on a rainy day to forget about the poor colors altogether.
  11. Exact same thing after only a few months. Leica owes us free reupholstery.
  12. Whew, back to regular Jeff S, thank goodness.:)
