Every product has its own positives and negatives and I don't think we should make the whole company responsible for one bad product, which this clearly is. If this camera was priced lower than the standard M262, because the loss of an LCD DOES warrant a fall in price, it could be a winner. But pricing it MORE than the camera that DOES have an LCD? Come on. As another poster noted, why not limit the frame no to 24, and while you are at it, make the raw files inaccessible for one day(development time) to give the feel of retro? I am beginning to believe that Leica has started snatching marketing boys/girls from Lomography. Their motto: Sell less for more! Ok customers are sheep and all, but even then...Oh, and I will not bother reading your negative comments, but if you have a lot of free time who am I to judge?
But...but I loved her...
mcshan: Which flash will it accept?
mcshan: Still wondering which flash this camera takes? Has anybody seen a photo of the Q with a flash mounted? I get high ISO so please don't tell me about that. There are times only a flash will do. Will the flash be bundled or another $700 or so purchase?
Leica website offers I think it was sb-260 flşash unit.
I am planning to buy Canon 70D, with Canon EF-S 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens. My intention behind buying this lens is just to make sure that I need not carry multiple lenses, and this should help me learn DSLR techniques. Please advise if this is a good combination.
Hi User :)You can also try the Tamron 16-300mm it's a great travel lens.
Too expensive, too late...
Wye Photography: Hmmmm, considering if it was not for these chaps (Niepce, Daguerre, Fox Talbot and Hershel, etc.), you guys would not be masturbating over your latest piece of electronic imaging gadget. A little respect is in order.
still, we would have been masturbating on something all-right :)
If they don't give full refunds to backers, it's a rip-off, as that amount of money brings them huge interest in any sensible bank.
fedway: skeptics abound.....technology marches on meanwhile the octogenarian crowd in DPReview say, I want my glass plate camera back - don't need no software correction
Glass plate cameras are cool... did you see some samples on flickr commons? Way better than film... If they could shrink this digital one reasonably and put a larger sensor camera(1'') now that would be progress...which they will do sometime in the future. With this, the question I ask is why not 100x zoom? and it will go down in price in a few short years, and Nikon brand demands a premium while there will be other competitors soon enough. Of course, we can always agree to disagree, a gentlemen's disagreement...which usually ended in duels and that's bad.
Yet another 1/2.3'' tiny sensor camera...
munro harrap: There is also another good reason for keeping all the art we have here here. Its called war. You can see online what IS and the Taliban do, so their people's culture would be safer were it in the UK, all of ity, rather than in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan, and we now also have to control who is allowed to buy stuff as any number of artworks purchased privately not only disappear into bank vaults,
but can be bought by people who then destroy them as ideologically unacceptable.I dare say that is already happening, so stop sales and guard our human heritage.
After looting so many of the world's treasures for the empire, it's not hard to understand your worries, they are pretty well founded.
I LOVE Fuji, I have their X100, X10 and one of the earlier zoom models. XT-1 and the lens line-up makes me drool. However, unless they move into larger sensor sizes, I will not be buying a new one.
Some real cool shots, with a few real bad ones.
RPJG: I hate to ask a serious (*and* potentially dumb) question, but does anyone know where to find similar side-on/cutaway images of lenses, explaining what part of the cross-sectional area is used for the calculation of the f/ number?
(Especially in the case of fixed f/ number zoom lenses, where the aperture being measured must be increasing as the lens zooms out to its longer focal lengths.)
There are two possibilities-one is that the smallest opening changes shape, which is unlikely, and the other is that the f number specified refers to the max. value, for example for a 50-100mm zoom lens, if the specified f-number is 2, then the opening must be 50mm, but that also doesn't make sense, as it would be better to specify the f-number as f/1:2 in this case. Hmm... good question.
For all I know, it's the smallest opening light can get throughout the lens.
Too late, I already got my Tamron... and it has no 'C' on it that reveals that I cannot afford the 'S' version...
I was contemplating buying the 35mm for my Df, but this may be a better option...if 35mm is any indication, it's sure to be tack sharp...
jabilson007: I am thinking of buying this. What bag should I get?
The special edition comes in a white designer bag-for ladies only.
I'm not interested in things I can't buy.
Thank you DPR, I now almost have a brand-new Stylus 1. The only problem is now I have to buy the 0.8x wide angle converter for it :) I loved focus peaking and all the other features...Easy installation with mac...
