What the Sony A7rII taught me about my 42MP Leica M 240

Blog by a leading professional photographer providing hands on review of camera equipment: Nikon, Leica, Fuji, Sony, plus instructional sample images.

Yes, you read it correctly. I am writing about my 42MP Leica M 240, and, yes, I know that a Leica M 240 has a 24MP sensor. The main reason I purchased my Sony A7rII was so I could use my Leica M lenses on a 42MP camera with an adapter in order to achieve very high resolution images for making extremely large prints -- prints capable of going to a 6-8' width. What I discovered in the process was that I could use by Leica M at 42MP and achieve even better results.

The inevitable comparison, like it or not, is going to be with the Sony A7RII. Even though the SL is more than twice the price of the A7RII, these appear to be natural-born competitors. When it comes to a battle of the specs, there really isn’t one

Leica S(007) First Impressions Review - Luminous Landscape

A New S Takes Center Stage Unveiled at Photokina 2014 in September of that year, Leica S(007) availability was announced almost a year later, on August 25, 2015. That’s a long gestation period. This is the third generation Leica S, joining the S2 of 2009

When it comes to build quality, the Leica S is a dream. It feels as if it was carved from a solid block of Unobtainium. Fit and finish are first rate, and, as with an S Class Mercedes, commensurate with its price. The Leica S(007) sells at B&H and has an announced price of $16,900.

We have a lot to discuss. So if you are looking for a summary, the Leica Q brings together the best aspects of German and Japanese engineering perfectly for the first time. I wouldn't say the camera is for everyone and it isn't perfect yet, but it's the best modern autofocus camera we have seen from Leica and the best fixed lens autofocus camera on the market as of 2015.

Hands-on with the Leica Q (Type 116) | La Vida Leica!

An in-depth and hands-on review of the Leica Q (Type 116) camera released on June 10, 2015.

We have to admit, we're rather smitten with the Leica Q. It's compact and handy, has both the aesthetics and intuitiveness of an M camera and adds (essential) modern features like auto focus and an EVF. The latter wouldn't be worthwhile if they didn't perform, and we're pleased to say that they do - and rather well at that. The feel in hand and build quality, it goes without saying, is true to Leica. The camera is sublime; it's all metal and the controls are crisp and precise. It's nimble to shoot with the new function and zoom buttons available.
