The Sigma fp-L + VM apo-lanthar 50 have become my main walk around combination. 

These images make me want to buy this combo, they look amazing.

What other m lenses do you like using with the fp-L?

Many thanks. The fp-L, like the Leica SL, is adaptable to pretty much any lens in your collection. Your favorite Leica M glass will be well suited. At home I've experimented with just about everything I've accumulated over 40 years of shooting. For travel, my current bag is small and I am filling it with two bodies  - Sigma fp-L with EVF and Sigma fp with Sigma 24 mounted - 3 M mount lenses - VM apo-lanthar 35 and 50, summilux asph 50 - and one longer lens, choosing between the elmarit-M 90, Sigma 85 1.4 or Leica apo macro-elmarit 100. At the moment, I am reaching for the fp-L + apo-lanthar 50 much of the time.

I think I have decided to give it a go with the FP or FP-L as an alternative to my SL2. I do mainly photography, and I am struggling to decide if I should pay more for the fp-L... Part of me feels that 24mp is enough and will work better with m lenses, but another part of me feels fp-L is a better model with (potentially) better AF and I can get the evf... I worry about the lack of stabilization and any effects of the electronic shutter and if these potential issues are more of a problem with the fp-L...

Hard to choose - the two cameras are obviously very similar. The handling of noise at higher ISO settings is excellent in the fp - slightly better than the SL2-S I believe, based on studies. There is more noticeable trade-off with "grain" in the fp-L. I did update the firmware in the fp but I have not yet connected the EVF to that camera. The EVF (or its larger optical cousin) is an important accessory for shooting outdoors in sunlight. I've never had a camera with image stabilization so I don't miss it. The electronic shutter poses an issue shooting indoors in artificial light. Shooting in LED illumination at 1/60 pretty much negates the banding - 1/125 less so. I've not noticed the rolling shutter (I also use it for still photography). The resolution of the fp-L, along with a high resolution apo lens provides some interesting potential to get close to nature with a normal focal length. Either way, the fp is a nice lightweight alternative to the SL series for hikes or long walks.

A new lens arrived, this is with the 7Artisans 28mm f1.4. This was shot wide open at min. focus .7 meter this is a straight jpg. out of the standard fp all I did was crop a little empty space off the bottom of the picture. This was taken Wed. night as they were setting up for "flight nite" four half glasses of wine for 20.00 dollars. I also have a 28 Elmarit 2.8 but at the price of this lens why not have a 1.4 also.

I got myself a second hand fp, but I did not have the chance to use it much yet. Here is one of the first shots from a quick street photography session. I have to say I do like it. I wish it had  a viewfinder but anyway I will try to do the best I can... I like the tonality of the files but I need to work more with them.

Nice photo!

 I'm just an interloper here, but I agree completely about the fp's tonality. Something quite pleasing about its rendering. I prefer it to any Leica digital, except for that of the S.

Yes I agree. I look forward to exploring this little camera further and it makes me wonder if it is worth playing with the fp-L as well... I also agree about the S (I hope you mean the Leica S). I was just looking at some pics I exported to jpegs some time ago and I was think how fantastic they look and i had forgotten which camera it was... It was the S2-P...

Indeed. Probably at the very other end of the spectrum in size and weight from the fp, I bet. I can't possibly imagine carrying it around, so I content myself with photo envy.
