A new review of the Leica T from the Red Dot Forum:
"The Leica T looks like it might have emerged out of Apple, as its sleek uni-body aluminum design more echoes a MacBook Pro laptop than a camera."
"The camera just exudes quality and is simply gorgeous to hold and look at. And, yes, for those wondering, it is made in Germany at the new Wetzlar factory, proudly signified by the writing under the rear LCD: 'Leica Camera Wetzlar Germany.'"
from Red Dot Forum
Okay, time for me to butt in here with a typical anecdote. When Canon came out with the EOS system, I was a happy Canon user in a sea of Nikons. The F1s I owned, I thought, were great and significantly cheaper than the top-of-the-line Nikon F3. But now Canon had forced a choice on me. The new EOS mount, while providing better autofocus and autoexposure function (the mounts actually started with a few more contacts than they had uses, anticipating future requirements), was completely different from the F mount I had heavily invested in. I could stay with the F, haunting flea markets and estate sales for old glass and gear for all time, while technology passed me by, go with the expensive EOS system, or switch to Nikon. Nikon was, as usual, playing catch-up in the autofocus business, but doing it while retaining a lens mount that accepted older glass.
I sold everything and went with Nikon.
Now Leica thinks that, for their new system, I'm prepared to invest in a whole new line of Leica lenses? I know that they're planned to be cheaper than M, R and S glass, but still ...
"An M Adapter-T will be available as an accessory to the T for $395. Like all other Leica-made lens adapters, the M Adapter-T features solid metal construction with polished lens mounts."
I dunno'. It's pretty and all, but I stick with my opinion about the photographic experience.
But read the review for yourself.
