I suspect the Leica executives will be chuckling away at the comments of the plebeian masses who see the Leica T as a piece of bling and not a serious instrument. In truth it IS a piece of jewellry for the likes of people who buy Rolex instead of Timex, or AudioNote instead of Yamaha. Leica doesn't cater to the masses nor cares that most can't afford it. There will be enough dedicated Leica lovers to keep the production line going and it will be around for a while. They are catering to a niche market and I wish them good fortune.
A great chef could probably turn a bag of pig poo into something gourmet.
Can't wait for you folks to start offloading your E-M5's so I can pick up a second body cheap.
Just curious, what happened to Rhein I?
The Steichen is exquisite and I wouldn't hesitate to put it on my wall. A copy naturally. The prices are silly of course but there is no rhyme nor reason to collectors and what they collect. If a photographer can get that kind of money then I wish him, or her all the luck in the world. Personally, I'd rather buy a mansion or for a few million more, Greece.
Who needs the latest and greatest anyway. I'm still having great fun with CS2. Just stick with the latest version you have.
Results not worth the effort for me, but it's always good to have a project to fill your spare time, if you have any, which I don't. Bit boring actually. Nothing more interesting out there? Or is it a quiet news day.
Has anyone yet figured out how many angels can dance on the head of a pixel?
Hmmm, still glad I bought my Olympus OMD.
GrahamJohn: ISO 25600 looks a bit grainy. Too bad.

Tord S Eriksson: Never seen a review here with so many errors, typos, and grammatical problems. Professional proof-reading is evidently needed, urgently!
For instance, what is this supposed to mean: "Should you choose the lens kit, then you'll be find the F3.5-5.6, 18-55 mm ..."
Awaiting the NEX-6 review ....
"Old." Ah yes, an all-encompassing term that means, to be concise, professional, and to have a sense of pride in the presentation of one's work. I can relate to that.
B******t, if the writer can't be bothered to click spelling and grammar check on his word processing software, that's just plain lazy.
Seems counter-intuitive to test a lens with the ISO at varying levels. Should have stuck to one setting.
Not too bad. Almost as good as my Sigma DP1S.
I love the design, simple and elegant, especially the V1 with attached flash. Of the course the proof will be in the image quality, but look at the good response the Olympus XZ-1 has garnered since it's introduction. I eagerly await a more thorough review with samples.
Had it been Sigma we'd be looking at $4995. I hope this starts to push down the price of the EPL-2, which I think I will get instead.
Looks like I was confused, I thought the EPL-2 had a 10 mp sensor, but everyone is saying it's the same sensor in the new range. But then again I still think the EPL-2 has a slightly sharper image in the comparometer. Which makes me wonder if there is a stronger anti-alias filter on the newer range. Interesting.
Interestingly, I still think the E-PL2 has the edge at base ISO. Going from 10 to 12 mp may have degraded the image a tad.
