For Leica M Shooters: the Sony RX1R as an Alternative to the M240 + 35/1.4 Summilux or 35/2 Summicron

Leica M Typ 240, Sony RX1R

I alluded to some controversial ideas yesterday (this is to say, controversial if one has cognitive committments based on firmly held assumptions).

Prospective Leica M shooters hankering for the Leica M Typ 240 with the 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH should take a serious look at the Sony RX1R with its Zeiss 35mm f/2 Sonnar.

That’s because the Zeiss 35mm f/2 Sonnar comes with a free 24-megapixel full-frame camera (the RX1R) for about $2300 less than the Leica 35/1.4 Summilux lens alone.

In Guide to Mirrorless I previously published a editorial perspective on the Sony RX1R which was oriented towards RX1R users, in my review of the Sony RX1R.

This new piece in Guide to Leica is designed specifically for existing or prospective Leica M shooters. There are two parts:

Leica M Typ 240 Sony RX1R with EVF and Really Right Stuff grip (my preferred shooting configuration)     
Leica M Typ 240 and Sony RX1R
