fmian: Wondering what the battery life will be considering it's a medium format size sensor that is always on.

You are right. I have 8 batteries with my old Phase One back.

I like medium format very much! Alpa system is fantastically simple - just frame. You need to use a range meter for proper focusing (for portraits). But the process gives you feel of instant photography. CCD back is preferable!

SergeyMS: A7R is the great camera, perfect IQ with ZEISS 24-70 lenses. One complaint - it has not so fast and reliable AF and very often it die due to unknown fault until turn off and turn on. Comparing with Sony A7R, Nikon 800 or 810 is much more reliable and fast as professional tool. Hope, that in new model all these problems are solved.

I use my lenses "out of the box" without any calibration and have absolutely perfect pictures in all parameters of IQ, excl. vignetting, but it can be easy removed by LR.
Yes, I have to go to with my camera to service center, but (it can be also) video button is located so poorly that I push it sometimes undesignedly? It is not clear to me now. I also did not perform updates, probably, it can help.

Camera looks very stylish. But, afraid, it has no proper market niche this moment. They were late for one year. And, as usually with Panasonic, it is overpriced.

It is not excellence in journalism. It is excellence in horror reflection.

SergeyMS: Just attempt to clone Sony RX1. But RX1 is more Leica, than Leica X...

You are right about colors - Leica has better colors than Sony RX1. But, in my Opinion, Olympus e-m1 and Fuji X Pro1, M have also absolutely impressive colors, if tuned properly, not worse than Leica. I am afraid that Leica lost it's advantage on market and has no attractive cameras this moment. Let us remember time when M8 or M9, X1 appeared - it was great event and long line to buy these cameras. Now situation is changed absolutely.. Nothing special and attractive starting from X2 times. Unfortunately.

I am very sorry, it is even not clone of RX1 - because RX1 has full size sensor. In my opinion, the difference between f/2,0 on full frame and 1,7 on APS is minimal (if it exists et all). It is too good for X to be considered as a clone of RX1...

Yes, it has slightly faster lenses. But it is very small advantage to be competitive with modern full frame compact with low noise on high ISO.

I have x, x2 and x vario and consider them as a brilliant cameras. But do not see any remarkable in this new camera. What happened with Leica?

Direct link | Posted on Oct 5, 2014 at 15:46 UTC

Very nice photos! As for the camera, it seems that it is not so impressive.

SergeyMS: No significant improvements comparing X20... Lenses and sensor are same. Other options not so important for me. I will proceed use X20 and wait really big improvements. Same story with new Sony 100III... Nice cameras, but no reason to replace previous models.

Unfortunately, now Leica lost their advantage of style and quality after FUJI X-PRO and SONY RX-1 has appeared. Now Leica has only superiority in the best lenses and S-system middle format.

SergeyMS: Nikon and Canon lost mirrorless market - they decided that they must to sell expensive SLR's. Sony and Fuji is far ahead.

Probably, not all people buy camera on Amazon?
