Leica SL might beat A7S II for video

Recommended Posts

New Leica SL announced. 
Mirorless similar to A7S but : 

24mpx  > A7S II
4K internally and 10 bit 4:2:2 output !!!! > A7x
120FPS in FHD with full frame sensor (no crop like A7SII)  > A7x(if it is clean)
World fastest AF > A7x
Touch screen > A7x
4.4MP EVF with 0.8x magn > A7x
11 FPS for stills > A7x

If it were not for the price... I would buy it. Of course this are specs and it might be that the image is way less good than A7S II.

Price is way way above the A7s so a bit unfair to compare.

It should be compared to the A7sII and the FS5 since both can be had for about the same as the SL body, and they both combine weigh about the same and are actually smaller in hand. Ok the last part is sarcasm, but geez this thing looks fat.

The Verge: "The body will be priced at $7,450, while the lens will cost $4,950"

You can get 2.5x A7SII for one of these. It's WAY above the former's price bracket. It's above the FS5. It's even about the same as an FS7. 

But don't get me wrong. It could be a really nice all in one solution. But for us video minded folks it's not a huge game changer.

^Agreed

When a camera is more than twice the price of another, it's in a completely separate category; it targets a different demographic and may serve a different purpose. 

Yup, could buy a Sony FS5 *AND* a Sony A7s mk1 for the price of one Leica SL. Or a Sony FS7. Makes it madness to buy a Leica SL for 98% of people I reckon.

No game changer, it's just huge.
