Maybe the future of the CL and TL2 will be the same sensor of the Sony alpha 7C: compact camera, full frame and 24 MP?
There are also rumors of an SL2-S with this specs so it can be the end of the CL and TL lineup?
Currently I have a T and I'm worried if upgrade to a TL2 for Black Friday or wait.. I will be happy to uprade for the extra megapixels of the TL2 but there are some cons for the fact that with the same sensor the pixels are smaller?
Happy if anyone can help with my decision

By dneaseI recently purchased a Q2 and subsequently decided to sell my T, T2 and lenses. The equipment is without any scratches or blemishes and works flawlessly.
I got a quote from Adorama and based on that reasonable offer decided to send them my gear. Now they are reducing their offer by a third after having the equipment in their possession.
I'm waiting to hear back from someone at Adorama after complaining.
I'm feeling stuck.
By nicci78After lots of discussion about future of APS-C. How many of you think that the real reason for CL/TL being held back is the lack of native lenses ?
A little history :
- 2014 : T was released with two lenses : 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 & 23mm f/2.0
- 2015 : Then two more with 11-23mm f/3.5-4.5 & 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5
- 2016 : Leica release the only two made in Germany TL lenses : 35mm f/1.4 & macro 60mm f/2.8
- 2017 : CL was released with 18mm f/2.8 pancake lens
Leica were on a good track, 1 or 2 TL lenses per year. But after 2017 ? Nothing happened at all !
We should have 10 to 14 lenses by now. Not 7.
Only 1 fast lens. Only a trinity of slow zoom lenses. Only 2 compact prime lenses.
None of them have OIS. None of the bodies have IBIS.
No portrait lens, aka equivalent to fast 85/90mm or 70-200mm f/2.8.
No fast wide angle. ex : equivalent to fast 18/21mm.
These lens cannot be replaced with any adapted M and R lenses.
So what’s the problem here ? Leica may think that APS-C line do not sell well enough. So they stop releasing new lenses ? It is a kind a vicious cercle. But no new lens = death of the system.
Just like they left the S line died by releasing only bare minimum body upgrade and no new lenses for half a decade.
So what do you think about this situation ?
By plasticmanMike Johnston at TheOnlinePhotographer blog has been musing about the perfect 'simple' digital camera again, and I can't help thinking that a Leica T(L/2) fits his description perfectly - if only he (and his readers) knew it.
He acknowledges that Leica is the only camera company embracing photographic simplicity, but the spectre of Leica prices keeps coming back - both in the blog posts and the comments - and the only cameras they seem to acknowledge are the M-series.
To me, the menu system in the Leica T is the most intuitive and minimal interface that's possible in an advanced digital camera - especially the way that each user can choose their own subset of visible menu items: I have only 4 items in that menu, and regularly only use one of them (the metering type).
Nowadays the T can be bought for less than a Fuji XE3. You can even pair it with an adapter for non-Leica manual lenses (ie: Olympus OM). Couldn't be simpler or cheaper.
Incidentally, one of the points being missed in a lot of the comments on TOP's site is the scenario where the user changes a setting on a camera unintentionally. A lot of the commenters say it's easy to just ignore menus and settings they don't understand. But this was one of the problems I persistently had with my X100 - I'd pick it up after a long hiatus and somehow an exposure or other setting had been inadvertently changed, and it would first take me a while to notice, and then usually a long time to fix (hunting through tens of menus). And I'm an app developer, so used to device complexity.
The T has solved all those problems perfectly.
