Which Mirrorless system should I pick for shooting with Leica M and Zeiss ZM glass? And why?
- Manual focusing assists (can be rangefinder system, can be focus peaking, I hate picture-in-picture though)
- Good viewfinder (preferably build-in, either OVF or EVF, doesn't make much difference for me - I worked with both, enjoyed both)
- Good RAW image quality at low ISOs (don't care about anything above ISO400)
- Lightroom-integrated workflow (suppose I can pass with DXO or something else though)
- High-quality adaptors (don't want anything plastic or some cheap chinese aluminium)
What I don't care about:
- JPG image quality, build-in raw processing or anything that's applied to JPGs only. I'm a RAW shooter.
- Native glass, or adaptors for other bayonets.
- Mirrorless with sensors from Point & Shoot cameras (Pentax Q, Nikon 1, etc.)
I can't afford Leica. Thought about buying Zeiss Ikon, but going fully into a film photography might limit me in some types of the shooting I do, so it went down in priority, perhaps one day when I get enough cash I'll go for it as a secondary camera as well... it's gorgeous. Pure photography tool unlike these mirrorless toys. But for a time being it seems like I could use a mirrorless so: what's your advice?
What are the options on a market?
Are there any particular strong or weak points of any system you propose?
How they perform with M-mount glass? Are there any artefacts?
Is there any specific camera you'd recommend? What would be it's weak points?
