bigdaddave: There are some dreadfully amateur comments here.

The 5DS/R's are professional tools, to be used by people who know what they are doing. For those users these are almost perfect products because they know how to light and how to use dslr's the way THEY need to get their jobs done.

Sonys and Nikons are great too but for a Canon using pro these are superb tools

"5 FPS is quite pathetic"

Not if you know what you're doing it isn't. If you aren't good enough to get a shot at 5FPS you aren't good enough.

Apart from which that is not what this camera is about

Of course, if you are already in the Nikon or Sony system you have some excellent options which will do your job just as well, each system has some good and bad points.

If you are already in the Canon system these are just terrific picture making tools if you know how to use them

bigdaddave: Just goes to show it's rarely the gear that matters, it's what's in front of the lens. You don't need to spend a fortune now to be able to produce good images

You miss the point which is it's not the gear it's the user

This is very impressive but as storage is so cheap I doubt it will be very popular

I'm sure they will sell at least seven. Maybe eight.

ThatCamFan: I am confused, one of them was okay, the rest are regular instagram cellphone level of excitement shots (bland, boring, nothing of interest in them)

I dared to suggest they were less than wonderful pictures and my comment was removed. You daren't suggest anything other an approval here now.

These photographs are supposedly put here to be viewed and criticised, but they don't want criticism, just approval.

That is simply a terrible photograph

Yes all very nice and colorful but haven't we seen exactly these pictures hundreds of times before? Nothing new here.

Was the Bison killed just for this?
When there are millions of cattle with perfectly good hides being slaughtered to make Americans fat this seems very unnecessary

Are the results always this soft and flat?

Once again the predictably pointless offering from Leica.
Still it will look good at the yacht club.

Richard Franiec: Hmm... How did you managed to get so much shadow noise at ISO 100 (Picture 1)?

pushing the RAW file by nearly a stop is not the way to show the camera off. Did you deliberately make these shots look bad? If so why?

The EF-M 11-22mm really is a fantastic lens, especially for the money. Not so much the kit lens though, looks like a duff one

In reply to:

bigdaddave: Just goes to show there is nothing remotely special about Leica images, apart from the cost

There is NO DIFFERENCE if you can't see that the $$$ have blinded you.

It's not hate for Leica, it's a distaste for wasting money on gear that doesn't do anything special
