Thanks for the link.
Impressive size for a medium format, compared to the Eos 1Ds III.
I’m blown away, every time I see the Iq from the Leica S2. And that is one serious viewfinder !

Would liked to have seen the ISO 640 and ISO 1250 shots.

And its thin like a smaller dslr

And its thin like a smaller dslr too.


Yes Leica S2 images deliver the goods. An example of spending more and actually getting more image quality. $22,000 body only is alot of money. More money than I've spent on all the imaging gear I currently own. If I sold off everything I own, then I'd have to buy a lens for S2, what's that another $4000 more. Ouch.

Yeah, not much of a 'versus' here other than the size difference.

The size is very deceptive. It does almost look like the camera is about the size of her head!

The Canon looks like it has been pulled from a war zone.

Canon trumps it when the iso is big.

Juza really uses his stuff a lot....


On another note, the S2 isn't all that big compared to a camera with the built in grip. It's sweet for sure, but who can afford it. And let's not even talk about the lenses
