    isleofgough got a reaction from insideline in Leica SL2 image thread, please post your images here.   
    To me, the Leica SL2 offers a lot for people who have manual focus lenses. I would love to have all the Leica SL primes, but I only have the 50 mm APO SL Summicron. That is a beautiful lens, and the major reason I purchased the SL2. When there is any motion, I am much more likely to get great or at least decent focus with the AF Summicron than any manual focus lens, and the sharpness and transitions to out of focus areas are exceptional with the Summicron.
    However for very precise focusing or video work, there is nothing like the long throw of a manual focus lens. Since I learned I could use the wheel on the SL2 to zoom in or out on the magnified EVF, I now get much better focus, and the focus assist works differently at different magnifications as well. Many decades ago, SLR cameras had pentaprisms or split focus circles for precise focusing of manual focus lenses, but those are long gone. The SL2's EVF brings back precise focusing. In addition, the quality and color of the pixels from the SL2 are excellent, not to mention the great ergonomics of the camera. Here is another Zeiss Otus 55mm for Nikon with adapter shot yesterday with the SL2 (shot at f1.4).

    Exactly!  In this instance, less (buttons, dials, levers, options) is more!  Actually the two main showstoppers for me were lack of R lens profiles (can specify FL only) when using a teleconverter, and no genuine playback magnification in the EVF.

    Those who have not tried C1P, I would recommend downloading a trial. At least on a Mac, C1P has much better color profiles than Adobe Lightroom (tested on a GretagMacBeth color checker card) and adjustment layers/masks are much more stable in C1P than in Lightroom (where those little dots sometimes disappear and one cannot edit or change parameters in a mask, despite "always show" enabled). Version 21 has a pro profile added for the SL2 and tethering as well as some other features (keystroke commands, etc.). There are some "features" in V21 which may not be in the final version as a few were removed in the most recent trial.
