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.
