On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (1977 comments in total)
In reply to:

darklamp: Tell me something it does that a Sony NEX with 18-55 doesn't for a tenth the price.

Ah, yes, it has a red dot.

And while that 18-55 may ( or may not be ) optically great, the reality is that correcting CA and distortion is the norm and accepted as quite reasonable.

Oddly no fast 50mm equivalent at launch and no 85mm equivalent at launch. Surely that's a minimum requirement for a serious camera ?

And they don't even include an M mount adapter for the price. That's cheeky. Who else will buy it apart from rabid M mount owners ? ( Oh, yeah, celebrities - I forgot ).

I can't take Leica seriously any more.

How long before we see the gold version ( or platinum ? ) and the snow leopard skin clad version with matching carry pouch ?

They don't make cameras any more, they make accessories for celebs.

There were gold leicas produced already 1930 or so. and if I am not mistaken also leopard versions ...

On Sony a7R teardown! Roger Cicala gets his hands dirty article (136 comments in total)

The clip-on connector is for the wifi antenna.

The built in battery is rather weird as it is not replaceable from the battery compartment. It is probably used for the clock and settings when changing the main battery.

On Sony Alpha 7 Review preview (1599 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Im not sure why DPR is so obsessed with the propensity for the a7 to choose 1/60.. only a newbie would have an issue with that. Hopefully someone buying a $1700 camera will understand what they are doing. Who do they think this camera is being marketed to?

And poor jpeg quality... on a 36 mp, 14 bit, no-AA, FF sensor!!?? Thats like buying a Ferrari and complaining that the Eco-mode isnt satisfying to drive.

The review is of the A7 (not A7r), it has 24 megapixels not 36

RStyga: If Leica is slowly degrading in quality it surely is not in pricing.

quality is certainly not degrading in the S system. it may not be increasing as fast as the prices though...
