Reviewed: Leica S2 37.5 megapixel DSLR + comparison with Nikon D3x

Just published in DAP is the first batch of material in my review of the 37.5 megapixel Leica S2 digital camera. There are a few rough spots, but I feel that there is high value in my analysis, given the dearth of information out there on the S2, certainly anyone looking to acquire the S2 would be wise to read my report (and it is still in progress)

The review was made possible by an S2 evaluation unit from B&H Photo, as well as the 70mm lens from Leica— thanks to both. See my handy list of S2 bodies and lenses.

Also included is a comparison with the 24MP Nikon D3x. I plan a few more comparisons, another with the D3x, and perhaps the Canon 5D Mark II and Leica M9 also. I’ve had the camera for about 30 hours now, not everything can be done at once.

I want Leica to succeed with the S2 and M9, but my first duty is to tell it like it is for my subscribers, and so I am very disappointed to report that the Leica S2 has some troublesome usability issues. At present, these issues are enough to dissuade me from considering the S2 for my own use, even if the cost were not persuasive enough. I document these issues in my review.

S2 or D3x?
