A little background of myself, I earn my money by taking portraits and having multiple M systems and lenses I always carry a MF system because I love the rendering for my staged photoshoots. I started with an S2, tried the S006 and upgraded my S2 to a S007. I was always very happy with my S007 but I often struggled with the 100mm f2 for focus and I believed the Mirrorless MF system would fulfill my needs better. After having test the Fuji (which was a piece of plastic and the colors and rendering were far off the S line) I loved the look and feeling of the Hasselblad X1D so I got rid of my S007 with 100mm f2 but kept my Summarit-S 70mm CS in the hope that the S3 would one day be released. The X1D was light, felt good in the hand, has sharp lenses with leaf shutters and has a moveable focus point and performed well at high resolution. In the beginning it was a honey moon I but after a while I started to miss the OVF and mature feeling of the S line and the lenses (although X1D lenses are very sharp) the XCD 45mm and XCD 90mm never gave me the rendering of the S lenses. The X1D also frustrated me of the short battery life, the feeling of a prototype often the focus point didn't move correctly and the interface was buggy even after all the latest firmware updates. Today I found a demo model S007 in a new condition and grabbed it I will shoot it the following time with only the 70mm CS lens but I might slowely add the 100mm f2.0 (which I stupidly sold) or maybe a 120mm CS. Some might call the S as we know it will be the end but I believe the S system will be a classic camera a true Leica cult camera. Attached some photos of my shoots with the S...
