    If so, I would be VERY interested in meeting and doing a shootout between my M10 + M lenses vs. the A7ii + M lenses. The reason I want to compare with an A7ii is because both the M10 and A7ii have a 24MP sensor.

    What is it within you that drives the desperation? :)

    I want to know whether I can sell the M10, switch to Sony, and save myself thousands of dollars. Lots of Leicaphiles say that M lenses are best on the M bodies because the microlenses are optimized for the short flange distance. I want to see with my own eyes how true that is.

    It's a shame you're not in Brisbane Amfibius... I'm pretty sure I have a Leica adapter that you could test your glass on my A7II and A7RIII :) I don't have any Leica glass to play with yet hah
