iudex: Nice. That´s exactly what M 4/3 system needs: fast lenses that take advantage of smaller sensor, thus enabling relatively smaller lenses (compare to Nikkor 24mm/1,4 with 620g and 77mm filter thread).However given the Leica badge it will cost a fortune, so I do not expect big sales. It´s a pitty Oly or Pany do not make such fast lenses (f1,2-1,4) on their own (i.e. cheaper than Leica).
In terms of DoF yes, in terms of light gathering - no.
borgein: And yet, Capture One Pro still lacks the following basic functionality:
1. Cannot open 16-bit grayscale tiff files.2. Cannot open layered tiff or psd files.3. Struggles with some zip compressed tiff files.4. Still lacks lens correction for ALL Leica lenses except the older Summicron 50mm f/2. Also lacks lens correction for many other brands as well.5. Still has a subpar library functionality.6. Still clutters the image folders with subfolders and sidecar files.
These are basic usability features that should have been fixed a long time ago. I had v7 and v8, but I will not upgrade until these basic features are implemented.
C1Pro is announced to have catalog functionality, just like LR. That means it SHOULD be able to read most image files, especially basic scanned 16-bit grayscale files (scanned B&W negatives)! It's not much of a DAM without this super basic functionality! And that is simply the ONLY reason I can't switch to using it, because I shoot film, and about 40% of my images consist of scanned negatives.

Kiril Karaatanasov: Is this version of Sony A7 with monochrome sensor and bulky body?
Anyway seems Sony sold Leica all of the tech for this camera except the metal body. May be this is the next iteration of the celestial cameras from Hassleblad that were selling overpriced NEX-7 and A99 cameras for while. We got to give it to Leica they even removed the color filter!
There isn't a single piece of Sony technology in this camera. The sensor is from a European company named CMOSIS, the viewfinder is in-house Leica, etc, etc.
Photo_AK: "... a single-user subscription is available for 10,00 USD / 8,00 EUR per month for a 12 month plan."
See Adobe? How come Phase One gets it right with their new Capture One Pro 8, and you don't at 9,99 USD / 12,29 EUR for your yearly CC Photography plan?
Media Pro is already built-in to Capture One Pro. Even Capture One Pro 7 had cataloging features, and it can import your existing Lightroom catalog and transfer most of the settings for you, however color edits will be approximations, of course.
Der Steppenwolf: Sigma was not joking when they said that their new lensconcept will change order of things. I am pleased to see some MUCH NEEDED pressure placed on Canon and Nikon. Their price gauging just ended. Thank you Sigma on so many levels.
The 50/1.2 is not a stop faster than 50/220.127.116.11 is half a stop faster than 1.4.A stop faster than 1.4 would be 1.0.
elvedhel: No support for Fuji X series pftttttt
I was one of the first adopters of the X-Pro1.When raw support was added to LR4.1 and everyone was disappointed about the results I was one of the first who said:
Proper raw support for the X-Trans sensor will not show up until the next major version of Lightroom (5.0) and Camera RAW (8.0).
The X-Trans sensor requires a major re-design of Camera RAW. The current support is "as good as it gets" within the capabilities of the current versions.
So to everyone that cries on every minor update (point releases): YOU WON'T SEE AN IMPROVEMENT UNTIL LR5 / ACR8 - NO MATTER WHAT. So stop hoping (and crying because it is annoying tbh).
borgein: It still doesn't support the Leica M Monochrom's (very simple) DNG files either!
There are no color interpolation on the mm raw files, so they should be easier to provide good support for compared to cameras with color sensors.

Francis Carver: Pretty neat product, lots of amazing features here. Of course, if it was up to Apple and the weirdo civil courts in California, nobody else out there on Planet Earth would be permitted to sell any consumer electronics products besides Apple.
Very good lens -- F2.8 at 23mm equivalent, wow!!!! Thanks, Samsung.
It is easily the largest LCD screen digital camera in the world -- at a whopping 4.8-inch screen size. I am not sure what the resolution is of this 'Super Clean LCD,' but it's probably way up there.
Thanks again, Samsung, and good luck to you in your ongoing battles with Apple.
Thanks for the laugh :) Now take your Galaxy and go to a different Galaxy and take pictures with your Galaxy, of that other Galaxy, in a far, far away Galaxy.
Does Samsung give these away for free, or are you a fanboy and hater? Take your Samsung religion elsewhere, please.
MrPetkus: I've been evaluating Revel and 3 glaring omissions are:1) No Lightroom integration other than Publish. EXIF data is inaccessible to the Revel user. Therefore, it is impossible to view photo information or search by name, place, even rating. This makes use of Revel with thousands of images ungainly at best.2) No DNG RAW support. I don't expect Adobe to support proprietary RAW files but why not DNG? As such, hopes that Revel could be a viable photo archive in the cloud are lost.3) No way to recover images en mass from Revel. Oops, I lost 5 thousand images. Thankfully, I'm a paying subscriber - I can retrieve those images from Revel. Wait - I can only recover images one-at-a-time.
Fix these issues and Revel would look far more attractive.
DNG is proprietary. A DNG RAW needs the same decoder routines as if you were decoding the raw file itself. DNG is simply a container format, nothing more, nothing less. The file within the decoder still requires the same proprietary software to be decoded.
