    Jack,

    Thanks for the review and pictures! You're helping to convince me to buy one of these though I'm afraid that ship has sailed! πŸ˜€ I like what I'm seeing from David, you and other forums members. However I may wait for an updated “snap”! Now if they'll only produce enough cameras to ship!

    Thanks again and do feel free to add to your experiences! πŸ™‚

    David,

    A wonderful review! You guys do a great job with your videos! Many thanks!

    May have to make a trip down your way to handle it one of these days soon. Of course I want a Yellow cover for mine! LOL! πŸ˜€ I'm pretty certain Leica will be pleased with pre sales as it suits as a back up for M/S shooters who are dedicated Leicaphiles, and excellent bling for many in the MB/BWM ranks. As you and Jono point out, it makes little sense from a purely specification comparison, but on other levels it appears to hit the right notes. 😎 I gave up years ago on the Japanese techno crazy menu cameras arriving regularly every 6-8 months or so! UGH!

    Will the lenses cover a potential full frame camera? My guess is no, but am curious. In spite of all the wild forum speculations, it appears to be what it is, an APS-C camera system.

    Thanks again,

    Jim

    Great thread Marc !

    Since reading about this offer I too have been in a bit of a quandary. Like you (well not really as an amateur), I also own, and have thoroughly enjoyed the S2P! Didn't do the S upgrade as I didn't feel the value was there. Opinions expressed are all very valid and I will continue monitoring the situation. Like Marc and others, I much prefer the CCD sensor. Having only recently traded my Phase kit on an M and MM and a bunch of lenses, I find the M great fun to shoot with its upgraded electronics, BUT skin tones in particular are lousy especially given the price! 😑 I have mostly been using the MM with great joy and it is also CCD! It IS a camera to own IF you enjoy B&W!

    All that said, I believe I will hang onto the S2P until we see what Photokina brings. IF its a CMOS sensor and IS proven to perform I MIGHT be tempted to buy one, BUT probably not give up the S2P with the CCD sensor.

    I know David is well connected in the Leica hierarchy but notice with interest his post talking about this offer. His silence on the CMOS speculation is deafening ! πŸ˜€ David, you'll have to do some serious talking with guarantees to get me into this deal! LOL!

    Just my 2 cents worth as a serial non poster! πŸ™‚
