More fool the idiot who paid the money. One born every miunte, you just need to know how to find them.
I'll probably get suspended again but frankly the final result wasn't worth all the bother
Great review and nicely done. Proves it's actually hard to buy a poor digital camera these days
Numbers 6, 7, 8 and 9 won something?
I must dig out some of my rubbish shots and submit them
Once again an Emperors-new-clothes camera from Leica.
Pretends to do all sorts of special things but is in reality an expensive, mediocre offering.
I would find it very difficult to respect anyone who really wanted to buy this monstrosity
bigdaddave: The camera is genuine but I doubt the lens is, the black Planars didn't arrive until much later, they were all silver back then
Yes, it does
Yes I read that but the 'facing' presumably refers to the camera body
Anyone who knew and used Hasselblads in the 70's wold know this
Yes, it's possible as on close inspection it doesn't appear to have the T* coating. However all the photos I have ever seen of the early space Blads had silver lenses, Planar Distagon and Sonnar

An interesting perspective from an actual pro. However I still think it is a bit sad that 10 frames per second is enough however 8 isn't. There's a lot of spraying and preying going on. How did pro's ever manage with 4-5 FPS and 36 exposure rolls or even 250 shot backs? They picked the moment.
Certainly shows Barnaby's level. Bit dull and lacking imagination? You really want to show these to the masses?
bigdaddave: This article utterly proves my point about the Fuji X100 series being an utter waste of money.
When you can get this sort of IQ in a small camera WITH a zoom it makes no sense whatsoever to limit yourself forever to a 35mm lens equivalent.
This is not 1950.
I can get an Eos M and a 22mm for peanuts PLUS I can then change lenses, the IQ is if anything even better

bigdaddave: Nothing at PK to even remotely make me upgrade my Canon cameras, which is good for the wallet, but not really good for Canon, they are beginning to lag dangerously far behind
The 7D2 might be a great crop body which I don't need in any way.
I need a 1Dsx(or even a 5D4) with 40 meg and there's nothing coming

joyclick: Now,that's a camera !!!
Why don't I understand?
If you want to buy one that's your choice. The fact is when someone is paying you (like they do me) I won't work with limiting equipment.
No proper wideangle or tele lens is a joke. It doesn't have to be f2,
Paying that sort of money for a fixed semi-wide lens is just crazy and SO SO limiting. Put a decent range zoom on it and it's very interesting. In the 1950's the tech wasn't there to make a good zoom, now it is. Use it.
