Interesting.  He also seems to state it has better image quality than the M.
Here is a quote:

"The SL is not a cheap camera ? EUR6,000+ for the body and a further
EUR4,000+ for each lens makes this the preserve of the very wealthy, though
in reality I suspect most of Leica?s existing audience will see this one as
a no-brainer. M lenses are now virtually native, as are R lenses; they?re
easy to focus and image quality is better than from the M cameras. It would
have been nice to see more resolution, but I suspect this might have eaten
uncomfortably into S system sales. I actually suspect this camera is the
beginning of the end of the M resurgence ? a typical complaint from M users
I know is one of deteriorating eyesight and difficulty in achieving focus.
We no longer have that problem. And for those used to paying $7,000+ for a
body, the SL isn?t a stretch at all."

He also goes on a bit about the size.   BIG

It is the lenses, almost same size and weight as S lenses!

SL compared to a D810 with 24-120/4 lens....

It's really not that big of a camera, but folks are hung up on this idea
that a mirrorless camera has to be a tiny little thing.
SL size compared to a digital M:

I look forward to seeing what you can do with it, Tina.
