1. Leica CL Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18mm Lens, Black, Pack of 1

Leica 19304 First Impressions

"It way more better."

Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Leica equivalents. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera. Fast or continuous autofocus. Start up and shut down is quick.

Leica 19304 Final Thoughts

"It simply works."

Even the focus lock button on Leica lenses can be customized. Right now, this is the best of the breed. Since this is a new camera not all Leica accessories will work. Overall, I am very satisfied and glad I made the switch. The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light.

Camera takes beautiful pictures. Camera takes beautiful pictures. And I wish the Leica lenses were a bit cheaper. A small upgrade compared to my trusty little X-T20. So I bought this for my California vacation.

Panasonic 9SIV0746Z68539 First Impressions

"Panasonic Lover."

Even the focus lock button on Panasonic lenses can be customized. My husband and I love the Panasonic 9SIV0746Z68539 so much. The grip is excellent for medium and large hands. Let me talk about them briefly. In August I sold my last DSLR and moved to the Panasonic 9SIV0746Z68539.

"Absolutely yes."

"I'm not kidding."

This really shouldn't stop you from buying this Fujifilm . The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. Several things keep it from getting 5 stars, however. The kit comes with so many things!
