Is a Leica camera worth the price tag?

Leica became a hot topic this week with the launch of the new Leica M11. This is probably the best rangefinder ever and one of the most expensive cameras. The high price of the body alone is $ 8,995 / £ 7,500 / A $ 13,500, which has been controversial for a long time. Can the Leica camera justify the price tag, or is it just a luxury status symbol?

Leica cameras are expensive at all costs, but they are also renowned for their exquisite design, exceptional quality, excellent image quality, and a unique shooting experience. Over the years, I’ve used and reviewed a lot of M, SL, and Q series Leica cameras and enjoyed using them. But do I buy it? It’s a difficult and surprisingly complicated question.

I love shooting with Leica because Leica cameras are beautiful in every way. But I don’t own it myself and I’m not going to buy it for now. I mainly shoot with Sony’s full-frame mirrorless camera. This is because it has a wide range of versatile and high-quality optical systems. And that’s all long before considering the high prices of Leica cameras and lenses.
