On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2265 comments in total)
In reply to:

David V: I would not be surprised if this camera were contracted out to another manufacturer altogether (including lenses). A quick and lucrative way for Leica to drop a red dot on them and charge the faithful an exorbitant amount of cash, believing that they are getting Leica quality in a smaller, "more affordable" package.

The lenses look like Panasonic m4/3 lenses and are "consumer grade" slow. The sample images that were posted here are overwhelmingly ordinary. I'll keep my Fuji X gear, thank you.

Indeed the lenses look like Panasonic styled them for Leica, they look very low quality compared to the body.

Looking at the ISO 3200 images, photos from Nikon's V1 look much cleaner at that speed. The sunny weather photos are looking OK but so does a Sony Z1 at good light. JPGs seem over processed and the lens doesn't seem to be very sharp.

beavertown: 12 fps + 60fps in Jpg, APS-C Sensor, that puts Nikon 1 system to great shame.

Well done Sony.

lol, of course. (-‸ლ)

VaLeX: If egami's blog turns into a source of "news" for dpreview, how about having a piece of news on the Olympus 6-24mm F1.4-1.8 (1/1.7" sensor) - allegedly the lens of the future ZX-3?

Or maybe Sony uses dpreview as a platform for launching "official rumors"? A special "partnership"?

You don't need to work for someone to sign a NDA. If they got presented preproduction samples or have gotten review samples they might have signed a NDA.

The body looks like an incarnation of Samsung's old NV line of cameras. Nice copy...

Why did they copy the lens design from Panasonic? They cool cheap.

In reply to:

Robo2k: Those samples are extremely disappointing. Almost all of them are horribly exposed. Then again, this is my biggest complaint with DPR previews/reviews in general. How do you manage to make every camera look so damn terrible? I mean this set barerly scratches the possibilities of this camera (or any camera for that matter)!

Your reviews might be wordefully meticulous (an honest praise!) but, man, your samples galleries (and especially this one) are the worst.

Indeed.

In reply to:

Horshack: With the advent of very fast CDAF (and CDAF/PDAF hybrid designs) plus 11fps such as on the A6000 I wonder if this technology can be acceptably replicated by using an automated focus-bracket mechanism, where the camera's processor identifies different focus subjects in the scene and brackets to each. The user can later select one of the photos for selective focus on a particular subject or the camera can create a focus-stacked composite for when deep DOF is desired.

Exactly.

lol, do you even know what Lytro does?

Michael Ma: You should do this with the app AfterFocus. Instead of letting the phone do it quickly and getting it wrong, It's better that you create the masks. The selection tool is top notch.

Certainly not.

captura: Theoretically you can now view Google Android Kit Kat generated photos on a 32 bit Windows computer with a 4.4.2 Kit Kat OS Install . Interesting?

Have those hacker privacy issues found in India with 4.3 and 4.4 Android devices been resolved yet?

Why should that be interesting?

JABB66: Hello

There's a chance to add some day the Casio Ex-10 or the not announced here Ex-100? Thank you :)

Jose

Amazon can't afford to buy one for you guys?

dodgebaena: thanks to focus peaking, I am quite comfortable shooting my Bower (a Samyang lens) 85f1.4 on my a99. This will be a nice walk-around lens for my NEX-6.

Well, it doesn't. ;)

mpgxsvcd: How is this better than a Panasonic LX7? You get a brighter lens with a bigger zoom range for a lot less money. Sure it has a bigger sensor than the Panasonic. However, the Panasonic's lens is much brighter(More than 2 stops).

A 1" sensor is a lot better, the LX7 gives you almost no control over DoF.

There are more interesting 1 Nikkor lenses.
