    Hi

    I joined a few days ago but think I should introduce myself.

    I re-joined world of photography with the birth of my daughter in 2006. I chose a film Leica R9 over the digital cameras at the time as it was comfortable to hold, all the dials were in the right place and I could use it without a manual. I am an amateur who enjoys landscapes and portraiture.

    My current favourite digital camera is the Leica SL and I have the 24-90 but also use it extensively with adapted lenses. I think this camera is almost perfect. The CL was too small for me. I am looking forward to Sigma and Panasonic releases. I also have about 40 film cameras, from Leica, Olympus OM, Canon FD, Nikon F and Contax; as well as Hasselblad and Rolleiflex. My regret is not enough time anymore to enjoy them all.

    The SL viewfinder is the best and I am surprised that almost 3 years after its announcement, nobody else has come close (the closest is the Leica Q).

    There are a few things not perfect with it:
    A dedicated ISO dial.
    Focus peaking with the horizon lines showing.
    LCD labels on the four buttons to show what you have them setup for on long and short press.

    I never looked through a SL2 viewfinder. When I am visiting Leica; i will try to do that though, to compare it with others...
