The Leica SL is a big camera... with a big list of pro features... and a really really big native lens. To review it properly would require an equally big article. Which is exactly why this isn't a proper review. Instead, this article looks only at one particular aspect of the Leica SL — its ability to work with adapted M-mount rangefinder lenses.
What does one do when one vows to publish at least one article per calendar-month, yet arrives back home — jet lagged and fully booked — on the final day of a month spent mostly in Tokyo? One writes a short article to explain why there's no article that month — thus honoring (though somewhat deceptively) one's vow.
Recently, the mad scientists at Lomography surgically removed the Minitar lens from their cult-classic LC-A camera, tarted it up by grafting on a Leica M-mount bayonet, and sent it into the night to tempt us weak and sinful lens addicts. I'm only human. I succumbed. And here, for the benefit of other weaklings, is my report from the stone-cold morning after.
I haven't seen any mention via online rumour sites, but I think it would be rather ignorant to assume that someone somewhere isn't hard at work on the Human 2.0 project. What new features can we look forward to? What bugs will finally be fixed? And is there anything that can be done to actually make me a better photographer?
