On Leica reveals D-Lux 6 fast-lensed enthusiast compact article (19 comments in total)

When I hear of rebranding, I think of Vivitar, Pro-optic, Opteka, Bower, Rokinon. Etc.
Well, I guess I'll have to add Leica to the list

qwertyasdf: Finally somebody in the m43 camp realises the crop sensor advantage.
This is the first ever tele PRIME, right?!
300mm F5.6 FF equiv DOF gives pleasing bokeh for mid range objects.
Good for the zoo, but still not enticing to birders.
FF 200 F2.8 lenses are relatively cheap, make one for m43, price it under $999, and now we're birding!

Actually not many 200mm f2.8 are still in production today, they are probably replaced by 70-200 zooms.
But, the Canon 200mm F2.8L II can be bought for $765 brand new.

Wish they styled it like the SX40, which IMO is very beautiful.

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)
In reply to:

technic: "Canon appears almost to have gone the other way, removing as much as it thinks it can get away with at the price. The result is the kind of conservative, slightly unimaginative design that's become the company's hallmark."

that sums it up nicely. what a disappointment :(

Good for Canon that they don't directly compare the 6D to the five year old 5D2 that is below $1000 (used). And who knows, maybe they even decided to use an inferior sensor in this more than $2000 'entry' model.

$1000 --> $2000

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: Just curious, is the ISO of Sony SLT cameras adjusted for the light loss resulting from the semi-transparent mirror?!
i.e. for the same ISO and aperture, will Sony cameras give the same shutter speed as other cameras? Or will it be longer?

Thanks for the explanations.

Kevin Coppalotti: "Does this camera make my nose look big dear?" Yes, yes it does. 35mm to short for a flattering portrait.

Take 2 steps back.

In reply to:

ennemkay: i agree about branding. sony should create a new brand for these cameras. much like auto manufacturers have a separate line for their luxury cars.

+1 for naming a new line
The word "cyber" is so 1990s

Size is about right, full frame cameras should really be the size of the Canon AE-1, or other older SLRs.

minturnino: Finally!!!!! Great Pentax!!! While Tamron do not update the lens to Pentax Camera..... Pentax solve the gap!
I hope that the cost is fair and not excessive in relation to the competition!

Don't over-think, it's a Pentax :D
