    There has been a lot of talk regarding the new Leica SL and how it stacks up against the Sony A7RII. However, there is no denying the Leica has some benefits which the Sony lacks and vice versa.

    For me the most noticeable benefits of the SL over the A7RII are:

    Build quality

    On the other hand, the Sony has substatial benefits over the SL

    5 Axis In Body Image Stabilization
    Electronic Front Curtain Shutter
    Auto focus of third party lenses with adapters

    Obviously there will be lovers and haters of both systems. But for me, I can buy an A7RII and two A7II for the price of the SL. I don’t see a real need for me to even consider the SL at this time.

    I totally agree. But then again I’m a total Sony fan boy – after Canon & Panasonic (good camera) I went for then NEX 5n, then the 7, then an A7, then a A7r. Now I’ve upgraded to the A7m2 and (two) plus lenses.


    As a user of a Leica M9 am really considering the idea of switching to Sony a7mii or a7rii. Just guessing which one would be better for my old lenses. The SL would be favolous but at this moment no way :)

    Think twice before going from M9 to any other camera. It is a completly different experience shooting with a rangefinder. Yo may miss that once you make the switch. However, The A7 series are much more affordable and your M mount lenses will work like a champ on the A7 with the proper adapter.

    For me, I am 100% into the Sony system now. I still have an F6 and miss shooting rangefinder cameras now and then. But, hey. I’m happy with my choice.
