Out of interest, what are your thoughts on M2 vs SL?

So, because I am pretty limited in how I am able use a camera (mostly with an assistant and my camera mounted on my wheelchair), I'm maybe not the best person to answer that question, but I will share what I can...

As you're probably aware, in use, an SLR is very different than a rangefinder and the two are difficult to compare.
For me the M2 is maybe the ultimate 35mm camera. It's small, exquisitely built, has nothing superfluous, and the rangefinder viewfinder is a cleaner, less adulterated way of seeing and framing.
If I am honest though, an SLR is better for how I have to work. Mostly because I can use a right angle finder and then it's much easier for me to actually see through the viewfinder. When I use my M2 I mostly end up scale focusing and composing blind, so I often will just keep to small apertures to avoid focus errors. My M2 shooting method works okay with a 35mm lens, but becomes more difficult if I use a 50mm.
The Leicaflex SL is noticeably larger than the M2, but other than size it is maybe as close to a Leica M that an SLR can get. I have previously said similar things about my Pentax SV, but the build quality of the Pentax isn't quite at the level of the Leicaflex and M2.
I think that my Leicaflex will become my main 50mm camera, and the M2 will be my main 35mm lens camera.

I don't remember what I used for this, it appears it is slide film.

If that's the case I'm very impressed with your M2 compositions!

Is the SL comparable to the M2 in terms of build?

Phil.
Is that also the headquarters of Oceanic Airlines? The airline with the worst safety record in history? (It’s the fictional airline they always use when they need a crash...)
