I guess there isn't much SL interest? Just loyal M users?
Well thinking and reading further reviews, etc., I think Leica hit enough of home run with the SL.
However, it seems to me that the obvious minimalist design philosophy that went into
it missed the mark. Minimalist design is a good thing, but the hand grip by all accounts is a major miss.
To me that speaks to a decision of forgetting that the grip is the geshtault connection of the camera to the user, and that subtle connection brings a confidence built of comfort and control to the camera/mind interface.
I'm not meaning to overstate this, just it seems really odd that Leica missed such an obvious design element. Too, when looking at the chassis, it appears a relatively simple fix is possible. A couple other observations, almost being picky - can we just have the traditional 'leather' on the body? And finally, can Leica start putting the MODEL NUMBERS BACK ON THE CAMERAS?
