Head-2-Head Review: Leica M8.2 vs. Canon EOS 5D Mk II
ConclusionBy Ted Dillard
10-RD HEAD-2-HEAD BOUT: EDITOR'S SCORECARD | USER SCORECARD
A photographer, who is very tightly focused on a style of work such as street journalism or infrared, will find a natural counterpart in the Leica M8/M8.2; however, you will have to work within its vocabulary, its finite capabilities. If you are willing to do that, then you are going to be in for a photographic experience like none other, and the simple act of handling this gem of a tool will be something you will not forget.
Oh, and of course, you’ll be about $3,000 - $5.000 poorer than the guy with the Canon.
