    Need Impressions on Leica T and 35-56 Zoom

    I still shoot some weddings and would like a second camera to use. I use the Sony A7ll and like it very much. Is this camera with this zoom good choice for what I am using it for? I do need AF. I also need to use Flash.Thank you

    I really do like the Leica T and also the 18-56 is excellent. I have used it on one wedding (but I was not the mai photographer) and like the small size and it was fine.
    However- if I was a professional wedding photographer I would want a faster lens and a more "professional" camera (faster, better high ISO)
    Also if you use flash on camera that means you could not use the EVF of the camera.
    For me the T is the choice if I want a relativly compact camera which allows good IQ. Its fun to use.

    Yes that is true. The Aperture on that lens should have been a wider one or a fixed one. Does anyone use a Leica with AF on a wedding?

    I think the lens makes sense to keep size down, and its very nice fpor using outside.
    Also there is a 23 mm prime and soon a 35mm/1.4 prime.

    If you use a A7II and like it a lot I wonder why not just buy a second A7II? It does have AF, you can by fast 55 or 85mm lenses, you have an integrated viewfinder and can put a flash on it. What are you missing?

    If you're not opposed to their size then why not a DSLR? They have a wider range of TTL lighting options, as well as, a wider lens selection. If you want to remain with Sony then the consensus opinion is that the A7RII is a Great Leap Forward from the A7II.

    I really like the T for what it is, but I am not sure it would be the best solution for your needs.
