Poor lens. My cheap nikon 35mm F1.8 is better than this.
M43 lenses all have huge distortion, I bet this is no exception.
jonby: It seems odd that, with an obvious gap in the market for a mirrorless/rangefinder-style MF camera, and with Leica's extensive experience in this field, their MF cameras should be SLRs. The CMOS sensor surely has now opened the door technically for the development of mirrorless/rangefinder MF and I would have thought that Leica would be well placed to be first ones there. If they made one, I doubt they would need to be dropping their prices to compete like this.
I like my Mamiya 7 and would like to have a digital range finder like it.
jonikon: Yes, there are some excellent Zeiss lenses still being made, but unfortunately Zeiss dirtied it's brand years ago when they signed a contract with Sony allowing them to brand any lens Sony chose as a Zeiss Tessar lens. The Zeiss quality assurance of Sony/Zeiss lenses is a joke and is all just marketing. Some Sony /Zeiss branded lenses such as the Carl-Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS are junk on the inside. Photozone only gives it one an one half stars out of a possible five, optically. Unfortunately many Sony users are being duped into paying premium prices for the the blue label Zeiss on the outside, but only getting questionable Sony optical and mechanical quality on the inside.
FE 24-70 F4 is another example. Optical quality is terrible.
I'd rather shoot B&W film.
I found that optical or sensor stabilisation works best at very low shutter speed.
A white 1DX is coming, yeah!
pca7070: Made in Thailand, finally.
Did I say made in Thailand means bad quality?
Made in Thailand, finally.
Why financing program? Aren't these for rich kids?
No. 5 is just a typical set up scene in certain part of China that anyone can take one like this if you pay 2 dollars. The man is there every day for you guys to take pics of him like this one. The old man is not a fisherman (maybe he used to be), his job is posing for tourists.
Feveon X3 or ailke is the way to go.
The optical quality of the kit lens is so-so.
An ugly overpriced "retro" camera.
Why not just get a D610?
I have this new 120-300 F2,8 (on Sigma SD1M) and found its central shapness amazing!
Would the very poor wide angle performance be still present in the new cameras just like the NEX line?
Average height (M/F)：North Korea: 158cm/150cm South Korea: 174cm/161cm
It means D600 is defective.
Eager to buy a used D600 for under $600.
