A silly pop-up flash has no place on such a camera. A viewfinder is a must in its place. It is incomprehensible why the manufacturers insist on accommodating flash. The indoor photographs prove its available light capability.


wow...impressive! i also would like to see what the camera does in contrasty situations. love it so far.don't know why they couldn't put an optical viewfinder in it for the cost.


Well Im impressed. It holds its corner details very well. Edge detail is impressive, tonality is as good as the big-boys, low light is fantastic and I can honestly say that it probably eats film at this point, though Id like to see what its like in horribly high contrast situations. Id also love to see where its at in black and white.
I love that they went with the Sonnar formula, that says they were thinking when they designed it. Test shooting that lens stopped down is a good idea because it shows the optics at their most flawed, and Im impressed at how it renders. Open up and for those of us who know the difference between one formulation and another we know roughly how it should behave. I must admit, im surprised at how little vignetting & bulge there is for a Sonnar. So again, Im impressed.
If I had the money I would buy one.
Its only a matter of time before everything is mirrorless and everything is full frame.

Dear dpreview, why oh why aren't you shooting a fast lens the way it is meant to shoot, like, wide open @ f2? So many f4.0 nighttime shots. Yes, we all know it performs better if stopped down, thats why I had high hopes to see how it performs in low light wide open. Would've also kept down the ISO2.500 to1.600 but maybe thats just how I see it.

It's like having a noctilux but prefering to bump up the ISO to shoot at 2.8.
And yes we all know that it's a pre-production camera ....
