Has anybody an opinion or even experience regarding IQ of DMR+Leica R lenses vs the Sony with Zeiss lenses?
I once had a DMR, sold it, used Nikon D3 and M8 - never felt that they are totally up to the IQ of the DMR.
I now started to also use MF which delievers great IQ but which also has clear limits regarding flexibility.
So now I have this friend who sells a DMR set with lenses - I planed to sell it for him and made the mistake to make an even closer look at it. I also mounted the 90/2.0asph and was intruiged how easy it would be to manually focus with this lens (bright viewfinder, shallow DOF). I am nearly in danger to keep the DMR and some of the lenses and only sell a part of the set.
What I ask myself:
1) would a Sony 900 + Zeiss lenses offer more/same (IQ) for less money? DMR-users-if you had to buy from scratch-would you go DMR again or would you go Sony A900?
2) Will the Leica R manual lenses work on a future R10; Will there value decrease much further when a R-AF-lens line will be announced? (Today the value for a mint R-lens seems to be not more than 40-50% of the official price for a new lens.)
