Both cameras have arrived.
Four of the five lenses have arrived.
Just handling this gear, I am delighted. Solid, heavy but beautifully balanced, simple and ergonomic controls, quiet and smooth for an SLR of the period ... nothing to get in the way of seeing the subject and releasing the shutter at the right time.
The R lenses are an investment in the future. They're what I'll use for the tele end when I acquire a new M at some point, when it is more available and the money tree is blooming. They are beautiful lenses, built like few others.
The Leicaflex SL body reminds me so much of the Olympus E-1, or is it the other way around? At any rate, they're two of the best SLR bodies I've ever had the pleasure to use. They feel right: solid and business-like, not just big and heavy. Just ordered a mount adapter for the lenses to I can use them on the E-1 too.
I am going to enjoy these cameras and lenses a lot. For a long time. :-)
