Rambalac: Only 1080 60i and 720 only 60p? :( Not action camera replacement
yeah youre right, i wont touch one now if its not 4k
CFynn: Interesting the Kodak V570 dual lens camera had Schnieider lenses. One of the first cameras I owned was a folding Kodak Retina which had a very good Schneider lens.
The V570 had 'folded optics' instead of folding bellows
Ive a kodak Retina 1b and the schneider lens is a cracker. Very sharp. love it to bits and was purchased for next to nothing.
great article. Loved the "holographic" focusing. The night mode looked very useful.
how much! its like that car Homer designed. Is there a button somewhere that makes it play La-Cucuracha?
not very spontaneous if you have to dig it all out your bag, screw it all together, stick it somewhere and line it up for the shot.
EssexAsh: i have a canon , nikon and leica m3. I just never use them as i spend all day arguing with myself
Seriously, Anyone who uses the word expert and ken rockwell in the same sentence deserves ridicule. (although he was spot on about the m3)
have you ever actually seen his site?

BJN: It's too bad that modern DSLRs are lousy for manual focusing, except in live view. The retro manual focusing lens needs a camera retrofitted with a 1970's style focusing screen.
oh this plum has turned up again.
why cant they follow Leica and hassleblads example and cover it in polar bear fur or something?
Good on them for sticking to what they do best.
yabokkie: don't know the camera but it got a 24.2mm diagonal sensor (slightly larger than 4/3") and a lens factor of about 1.85x. so a 50/0.7 will do the job as 93/1.3.
so for the lens part, a 85/1.2L on 5D should be able to beat it.
oh just sit back and laugh at these armchair nobodies.
EssexAsh: another once great company dissapears up its own backside.
+1 to the intenet grammer troll, kudos to you, you da man, get in the hole, be the club etc etc
another once great company dissapears up its own backside.
birdbrain: Forgetting the size aspect for the moment, the sort of money this camera is going for I would get a Canon 5D3. Having used the 5D3 for a while now and seen what the real world results that one can get, then I can live with its size and with carrying it around.
This really needs to be a whole lot cheaper, or are Sony the new Leica? :)
and then try sticking your 5d3 into your coat pocket. Well done for totally missing the point of this camera.
timedrun: I dont know how much a yen is worth precisely, hopfully not a lot. but only a muppet would pay more than 200 quid for this.
if you yanks had to experience our free healthcare you wouldnt bang on about it so much.
Armin1: This camera is ugly, a big chunk of plastic. No matter how good it can be, I won't buy it. it's kind of eyesore.
in that case, Leica would be your best bet. Great looking camera for non photographers.
looking forward to the DPR review
meland: What I have learned from these comments is that there have been approximately 57 ways of attempting to be sarcastic about the red dot and f6.4, none of which are particularly original or even funny. Come on guys, surely you can do better!
"Come on guys, surely you can do better!"
Oh the irony. Could easily be said to Leica.
JEROME NOLAS: The hall of shame has a new leader!
yeah and the carbon fibre one looks pretty cool! just ignore the Pinocchio version.
meland: Come on guys, your green eyes are casting an unearthly glow over the whole Comments page. Admit it, if you were wealthy enough to be able to afford this camera without blinking, you wouldn't be wasting your time bleating about it would you.
if i was wealthy enough to afford this camera, which i am, id buy a different make with better specs, which i did.
EssexAsh: there are 1 or 2 Leica cameras i really do lust after but so much respect has been lost now.
All this thing says to me is Leica think we're complete idiots. Its an insult, its Leica saying "yes we know no one who knows how to use a camera will touch this with a bargepole, we're targeting retards from now and we're laughing about it in our staff meetings. Now stfu and give us your money"
How else could you justify their reasoning in releasing this peice of crap when you see what aps-c compacts are out on the shelf today.
I mean, 1/2000 shutter speed. How is it ever going to need that with a 6.4 lens unless youre standing on the surface of the sun! jesus, what a joke.
ok, idiots with money
