On paper, the Leica TL offers me very little that I need from a camera. In fact, with the context of having one in my possession, I’d go as far as saying that it’s almost completely redundant amongst kit I already own and use. I expected this would be the case too. It’s for this reason, combined with the potentially not insignificant financial outlay, that – despite finding it quite an intriguing bit of kit – I’d have never likely sought to buy one of these cameras. Yet, when I was offered one in part exchange through the shop, I couldn’t help myself. The intrigue got the better of me so I decided to do the deal and that I would give it a go before I sold it on.
