From DxOmark conclusion :

Although the Leica Q’s sensor performance hinted at the direction Leica was taking, the Leica SL sensor improves on that. Such improvement might be only in some small way, but it is quantifiable. With impressive still capability surpassing that of many high-end DSLRs, and with access to Leica’s huge range of top-drawer optics with a range of optional adapters, the Leica SL is a compelling choice,  particularly for those who already own a number of Leica lenses. The Leica SL is not cheap, but then engineering at this level never is. Compared with the Leica M, there’s not much in it —indeed, it is even cheaper than a newer M-P at $7950, and that’s before taking into account the extra $570 for the Leica Visoflex EVF2. Given the advantages of the built-in viewfinder for focusing, particularly off-center, the SL may even be the better bet.

The Leica SL Typ 601 features a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor offers a built-in SXAG 4.4MP resolution EVF and a 2.95″ touch-sensitive LCD with 1.04M pixels, complemented by a top panel 1.28″ monochrome status LCD. The Leica SL Typ 601 is capable of 4096 x 2160 4K video at 24 fps, offering 4:2:0 internal recording or 4:2:2 over HDMI.
