Jump the shark comes to mind.
This is what happens when your marketing is wonderful but your product is crap. This is baiting your expectations with a red herring. (Rolls up newspaper) Bad Canon! Bad canon!
I want a pony that shites diamonds and pieces fine scotch.I see the superiority complex gear heads have poked their horns in. It should be f.95 at a quarter the cost and quarter the size. I fart in your general direction if you are less than a 35mm sensor size devotee. All worship "FF" and the virgin Leica from whom gave birth to our lord DOF control. Throw some APSC sensor owners in the volcano to appease our gods anger of those who blaspheme his sensor size. Lay waste to any M43 user and take 1" users as slaves and concubines.
I like how compact it is. Just needs compact lenses.
Where us the damn Fuji X30?!?!?!?Can you please do a "Battle of the 1" sensor" when the X30 comes out? Compare to the Canon GX1II to the RX100III to the Fuji X30 would be awesome. I hope you already have a X30 review unit on hand.
It's not the review that matters but how pithy or troll like the comments are ;)
Peter KT Lim: Never mind about Leica lens, the little red dot command the respect, this camera command the respect for those like to show off.
If this were made by Samsung it would sell for $800.Who is the market for this camera? If money is not an issue (what a lot of Leica snobs say) why not just buy the M9??Who wants to pay Germans to polish aluminum? How about a knurled surface that would add grip. Buy a Fuji and with the extra money fly to Germany and take pics of the assembly line and try to pocket a red dot. $20 says the people polishing these cams are not even German.
Ben Stonewall: Lieca!All fur coat and no knickers!LOL!
I don't care who you are, that's funny right there I tell ya (Cable guy voice)
If this had a Foveon chip it would negate a lot of the FF argument. In five years this could be something even the critics would have a hard time nay saying. As it is it is a pretty cool looking enthusiast/soccer mom cam. If it were interchangeable lens cam in the future that would be even more interesting.
Its not Full Frame!!! It's crap! Is there room for a Leica red dot? Then they could charge triple. All the bourgeoise will have red eye and not want red eye removal.
Will there be a Metabones Speed Booster for MF 645 lenses to the Sony A7? That would shake things up.
What, no "Art" filters?I want a pinhole art filter ;)
Not interested in the video but how many stops of DR?How will stills compare to a frame of video?How large can you print before diminishing returns?
MrTofu: Death Star
That's no moon...
likeafoxow: All those pictures, and not a single one of a person actually holding that strange looking camera. How do I know if that shape will work ergonomically?!
Lol. Nobody seems to know how to hold it.
I dub thee "Limo" as in stretch Limousine. The Sigma Limo.
The right side strap lug looks like it will be a bother.
