    Comments about Leica S Medium Format DSLR Camera (Body Only):

    The Leica S is a beautiful camera that takes beautiful photographs. The layout of the body is simple and elegant. While it is heavy, it feels much better in my hand than the M. The viewfinder is enormous and fantastic. The only small drawback with the camera for me is, being medium format, the lenses are a tad slow compared to the fastest 35mm lenses. Otherwise, wow.

    Comments about Leica S Medium Format DSLR Camera (Body Only):

    I have had an M9, which I replaced with an M, for years. I was extremely happy with both of these bodies. But the images were limited to around 40" x 30". At this size, the image quality was absolutely incredible. I purchased the S to enable larger prints. I have not been disappointed! The image quality of the S glass on the S body is incredible! And I do mean incredible!I have the 24mm, 30-90mm, 45mm, 70mm, and 120 mm lenses. All produce incredible images. The zoom is a little slower F stop, which limits use indoors. But for travel, this is my "go to" lens. The zoom does not sacrifice image quality at all.

        Comments about Leica S Medium Format DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        I believe the S is a substantial improvement over the S2. The improved focus module is superb, high ISO is very useable all the way to 1600, and the S optics are unbelievably flawless performers. I'm very pleased with the ability to shoot at higher ISO when needed as I do not like to utilize lights. The interior image of the elephant was shot at ISO 1600 1/90sec at f/2.5 with the Summarit 70mm. The DNG files are a pleasure to work with in Lightroom. I apply my custom Color and White Balance Profiles I've created with the ColorChecker Passport and I'm done!
