How does the Leica T compare to Film?

For those of you that follow me on social media, you probably know that I shoot ALOT of film....you might also know that I recently got my hands on a Leica T camera....a digital camera.  I decided to take this camera, and my Nikon F2 (produced 1972) out to test how each camera compares to each other.

To be completely fair, this probably isn't the best comparison.  I'm still new to shooting digital cameras.  Shooting "manual" is normal for me, but I have yet to produce the type of images in-camera that I get from film without having to edit them afterwards.  The Leica T is amazing in low light.  Holy moly, it is amazing.  I will post photos of its low light capabilities in a future portrait shoot.....but in the meantime, here is a comparison of the two.

I wish I recorded the "EXIF" data...but again, I primarily shoot film...so I don't normally record that type of information.  I used an external meter at the first half of this shoot...then gave up because the images from the Leica weren't to my liking, so I shot a mixture of "A" and "P" mode.  Enjoy!
