If Leica guaranteed some kind of forward support for new sensors/electronics in the same body say every second or third year, I think many more could be tempted, knowing they would have a classic that could keep up. (If not otherwise, then by offering a high return price when buying the successor.)
But first they need to finish the camera. That pop-up flash and to some extent the card-door leads me to believe top-management is not entirely german. One-piece aluminium or no deal.
And lenses to match, thank you. Black looks weird here.
How can the Tamron be ENTIRELY useless when cut in half?
Thoughts: It is shocking that one of the best camera review site- DPR doesn't have a forum for Hasselblad...
"Sony Alpha SLR/SLT A-mount Talk" ?
aerorail: these polls are useless of course you're going to vote for the one you own. most won't have experience with any other camera to make 'best' judgement.look how the polls reflect what the majority own
If the voters, or a substantial part of them, also logs whether they own/owned/want the cameras, DPR can do the math and figure out what the most wanted (not the best) camera is. Perhaps they can also dig into data and figure out how many would buy another camera than they have. Both figures would be nice for us to see, but not more than that - but they will be invaluable to gearshop and amazon (which also means those numbers will not be published) ;-)
locke_fc: This makes a lot of sense to me. Assuming it was a properly designed study, published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal (granted, that's sometimes a lot to assume), I'm going to say most people here aren't qualified to express anything but anecdotal views as to the validity of its conclusions.
So who is doing that guesswork you claim, the person or the PhD? If it is not the PhD, are you then not moving outside the realm of that science you use to support your claims?
Your PhD taught you to GUESS about the rest of the worlds qualifications, too?
Buhl213: Are FF zooms better for memory than APS-C, then?Or does this study apply to 1/2.3"-memories only?
I shall immediately delete my large-sensor-large-aperture images in the hope of quick reconvalescence.
Now, if I could just remember where I put them ...

"...3 different colours including, white, black and red, ..."
I will now go and figure what the remaining included colours could possibly be. Stay tuned, but do not hold your breath.
Buhl213: Nice - but when I view in 1:1, I can only move the scrollbars behind the picture, the image itself is stuck in left-hand corner :-(
Hmm ... ignore that. Actually I can.

One of the few pieces of art I actually like :)Nicely shot w.r.t. the light!
When one buys X-trans or Foveon equipment, it is because it is deemed superior to common mass-marked targeted Bayer-alternatives by the consumer, right? Why can this consumer not understand that it is an informed choice he/she makes, a choice that also excludes the "normal" software-support from software-vendors who has chosen to target the 70-80% of the most common marketplace within the photography-segment with the best ROI (same software, same demosaiching, same filter-mechanisms, a new table to describe a new lens) ?
I see no economic reason that these SW-vendors should support less common technologies unless directly paid to do so, and hence the camera-vendors have to make it a competitive technology (in terms of quantity, not quality), or seek alternatives (e.g. paying SilkyPix or SPP-developers to do the job).
In other words: STOP WHINING. Go take some pictures - and let the Sonikonicus-users enjoy their support, they need it, they bought inferior & conform technologies ;)
Buhl213: Nickel-coated? Am I the only one wondering about contact allergy now?
Me too, but I didn't plan wearing gloves the last 20 years ;-)
skytripper: I've asked this question before, but I'll ask it again:
How is it that DP Review has such top-notch content but such a motley assortment of rude, lewd and childish comments on almost every topic ever posted here? I don't get it!
Because the only thing that make humans behave is other humans -- a skill honed by our ancestors by reading our surronding's faces, body-language and reactions in general -- and being present in those surroundings makes us vulnerable. Logging in (and out) on a forum does not allow us to read reactions while asserting our statements, nor does it make us vulnerable.

Can somebody please explain to me why this sensor does not (re)introduce moiré at a more coarse level than per-pixel? You can convince me that the new pattern seems sufficient irregular w.r.t. blue+red, but it now groups four green pixels into an adjacent group. Will this not cause the same effect, just at another resolution/zoom? Does Fuji use a more complex de-mosaicing algorithm (which does not blur the images similar to an AA-filter) ?
