Subject: [Leica] Leica SL weight comparison.....

Just a note...

The Leica M9 ( and presumably all the other Digi-M's) weigh 600grams.
The Sony A7 weighs 475 grams
The SL weighs 847grams

There are 454 grams to a pound....
The difference in weight between the SL and the A7 is about 375 grams or 13 
Another way to look at this .... the A7 is roughly HALF the weight of the 

The 24-90 lens weighs in at 1.14 KG ( there is a typo in the download 
datasheet, it actually says 1.140grams.  Highly unlikely!)
The weight of the 50 Lux is not stated.

Most Leica M lenses are each around 300 grams.  So the zoom lens is about 
the same weight as 3-4 M lenses.  ( 24,28,35,and 90 together would weigh 
about the same...)

Bulk wise, the SL is surely requires a bigger camera bag solution....
