Does anyone still choose DSLR over this at this price point?

km25: Leica needs to think long and hard, is this camera really worth $7-8k. Can we make it cheaper. If Leica got rid of the expensive RF system, replaced it with AF. The cameras would still be made in Germay. Lens ground in Germany and assemble in Japan. The costs would be a lot lower. The camera $3-4k. Lens would be less then $3k. The new APS-C Leica is a start. Leica needs to jump in with both feet.
In the days of film, buying a camera that last you a "life time" maybe an investment. But with digital and changing technology. What is todays marvel is tomorrows doorstop.

Considering much more niche camera like Pentax 645D, which comes with much more expensive medium format sensor selling for $6000, I have to say Leica's price can't be explained with niche-ness.

Gesture: Beautiful camera. Excellent sensor. Great focus accuracy. World-class ergonomics. AND a great kit focal length.

It is called stealth marketing.

In reply to:

love_them_all: So everything that is not OOC JPEG is potentially altered? I thought this service can detect if an image is a composite of several images or if the model in the photo has been altered to look slimmer or something like that.

They think in camera processing such as Toy camera effect is real, but LR white balanced file is fake, if I don't misunderstand about this service.

Is this thing against RAW file format?

I checked the series at the original site, and I also find they are far from interesting, except only a few exceptions. This is the most boring photo competition result I have ever seen, sorry...

Please don't call me ignorant. I learned photography and contemporary art at college, so I believe I know photography a little more than average people here.

Please cut the body to check if it is not made of plastic.

asp1880: "The viewfinder now operates at 200Hz, meaning a lag of just 0.005 seconds." This is not necessarily correct. The lag can be anything and is not directly related to the frequency, as the quote implies.

XT-1 EVF is very fast.

In reply to:

rhZhao: I think Leica should focus on making good product instead of make the production process looks good.

Because everything inside the camera is made by Japanese. Only thing they did is the enclosure and color calibration.

mauijohn: Overall this smartphone is a lot better than my Canon S100 to carry in my pocket without worrying the lense got stuck with "lense error" message on lcd. Plus the zoom is double on this phone.

Yep. the question is how long this thing last.

I posted the same question. I prefer BEFORE.

photosen: Nice article. I'm sure this camera will find it's market, and good luck to them; beyond Leica's lenses I don't find their wares appealing.

Yes, sure.
Leica also should sell memory cards made with aluminum case for $500.

It's pathetic that they have to emphasize how the body is made... This is probably the only distinctive feature of this gadget.

In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: To understand the present, you must first understand the past. Why are Japanese cameras cheaper?

After the WWII, Germany was stripped of all its intellectual property, its industrial and technology patents made void. It was devastating to German companies who have totally lost momentum, and it created a huge bonanza for manufacturers elsewhere (particularly in the US and Japan).

Many of (then) smaller Japanese companies had actually been repair shops before the war, and were familiar with the construction of the cameras, and most had experience fabricating hard to get parts.
The economic boom following shortly after made Japanese into de-facto holders of 95% of world's photography related patents. Which Leica must pay for through the nose, of course, being such a small manufacturer from Germany. When buying any component, because of its small purchasing power, Leica pays many times *more* for same parts than some Japanese camera company.

Is this supposed to be an excuse for the price of this camera?
