Leica T (Typ 701) Field Test and New Reviews

From Photoreview

“What we can say is that Leica has taken a welcome move into the CSC category and produced equipment that looks smart, performs competently and is likely to please those who yearn to experience Leica’s renowned craftsmanship and style.”

From ePhotozine

“If you are in the market for a unique camera, and have the budget to spend, then the Leica T Typ 701 is certainly capable of producing good results, however we’d be tempted to wait for additional lenses to be released before committing to the system, particularly when there is a much larger range of lenses available for alternative systems.”
