J A C S: Did they fix the folders permissions fiasco for OSX? This sentence: "Please see instructions to help correct user permissions issues" does not sound promising. Those instructions did not work before for many and the user should not mess with them anyway.

Same situation, but easy fix sadly for those who know IT. Should not be that way, I lost a lot of time talking to the idiots in support. I guess it's not their falt, probably the look for untrained people, pay them peanuts and then expect them to be professionals. If you still have issues I can help you send me a pm. But basically you need to add writing permits to the admin group.

Maverick_: Leica, Here's a free 100 million dollar advise. Close your camera division. You aren't making sense and you are ruining the Leica name. Be only a lens company, like your other German partners (zeiss and others).

You are dragging your name in mud. First by attaching Leica name to Panasonic cameras and charging them for 6 times the price. Then by making cameras that no one wants. No one!!!! (that one fat guy in Canada doesn't count).

PS: I am not a Leica hater, I happen to have a 1953 FIII in perfect condition.

Yes they have some products that make me ashamed of been a Leica user, but the m is a wonderful product like no other camera in the market. So having no competition basically means they can charge as high as they want if people are willing to pay. It was a huge effort for me to get a digitall m, but I don't regret it. And after using many other systems there is nothing that comes even close. Remember is not only about what the technical charts say, if that was the case Sony will be number one :)

On article Leica Q In-depth Review (1111 comments in total)
In reply to:

IvanPavlov: Are there among commentators professional photographers? Or are only wealthy amateurs having Leica Q?

Which are professionals shooting with Leica? And how many professionals are shooting on Leica M/S/SL?

About this camera: May consider this is as professional tool or auxiliary (second) tool in terms of real work taking into consideration its abilities and price and value of brand?

The Q is like the RX1, rarely a professional will be using any of these cameras for a pro job. The M yes but mostly as an additional camera, not main camera, for that you have good old dslrs. I am no professional but spoken to a few that use those cameras that way :) I am not expert shooting, but do shoot more than, cats and flowers, and I am looking into getting the Q. 28mm is my favorite focal, and what could be better than good autofocus, with great image quality, and fast operation? (I had a a7ii with the native 28nn and doesn't even come close).

noflashplease: I don't understand the Scarface theme of these sample shots? It's worth remembering that the Brian DePalma film is from 1983, and in 2016 this sort of imagery is probably borderline offensive towards Latinos.

Offensive toward latinos? OMG, hahaha that's part of the issue with racism now a days, i am not saying it doesn't exist, but most of the time, we tend to look for it where it doesnt exist. You can not say black, you can not say latino, you can not say mexican, maybe is because i was born in a place full of issues, but none of them related to racism... (I am latino by the way).

inorogNL: my x100 pretty much lost all letters from buttons within a year, not to mention other problems. It's not what you really expect from a premium price compact

Many fuji users say that quality now a days have changed a lot. I had an x100 first model, and it was send for service 3 times. Horrible service, (one time they forgot to connect the evf).

That's what stop me from buying any other fuji system. But it seems that they have improved a lot, also the x100 was the first iteration. I guess they learned the lesson.

RStyga: Just keep in mind an alternative reality based on news that certain photojournalists/videographers where caught paying refugees who had just reach the shores of Greece to enter momentarily back into the water and come out again in order to take dramatic shots/videos of them. We live in a "wonderful" world...

Rstyga i am constantly watching the news and till now I haven't seen anything regarding journalists paying, that's why I ask you about the source and if you have links...

Rstyga, I seen the Hubgarian journalist and agree it's very shameful, but what you are suggesting without any facts, just because you saw it in some news channel? common don't spread what you don't know. That's how gossip travels the world, but yes since someone told me it must be true :)

Otto K, i know about the Hungarian woman who kick the immigrants, and yes there has been many cases of journalist manipulating the situation to make it look worst, angle of the picture, positioning of the camera, etc.. but my questioning is about RStyga statement about pj paying immigrants to go back in the sea. I am not saying is not happening, i am just asking him from what source he got that, and with what he sustain this judgment, he sounds to much like the people defending Che Guevera....viva la revolucion, and secret agendas.

Were can I read about this? I know people go to extremes, but are you saying this because it's a fact or you just read it on revolution news...

On article Ultra-compact: Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review (516 comments in total)

Reading this reveiw makes me not want to change v1 for v2. It still is a slow camera to operate, focusing might be faster but operation still remains sluggish.

I was very intrigue to sell the v1 and get the v2, but since i dont really nead that amount of mega pixels, I will stay with v1, (even thou i do want that evf, :) )

In reply to:

zeratulmrye: “Unlike many recent Sony cameras, the RX1R II opens up its aperture to its widest setting to initially acquire AF”

My A6000 is doing the same after one firmware update. (no matter if real time view is on or not)

A7ii doesnt, and i have the latest firmware. It makes the camera unusable for studio, f11 dim light, the camera will not focus at all. Great camera, but a joke for studio. Good thing I rarely use it with strobes.

malabito: I welcome all new products, but if it's going to be very slow, why bother?

Have you seen the videos about the adapter? The persons are shooting buildings, statues, portraits, nothing moving, all static objects that I could easily focus manually.

Now if the manage to do this fast, at least central focus point then it will be interesting.

@SmilerGrogan, you are right, if someone has some kind of issues with the eyesight it will be very helpful, (still not 40 but close :)).

The Silver Nemesis: B-R-A-V-O!

Iamnotarobot: Sorry to be blunt, but why would anyone buy a strap that is sold under a name of a person who takes mostly mediocre pictures.
If it was someone from Magnum Photos... then it would be a different story...

I wouldnt buy his strap considering so many options in the market, but i dont consider his pictures mediocre, he actually shoots much better than many so call street photographers i seen posting all around the web, https://www.flickr.com/photos/ekizz/with/21790409488/

Thorgrem: It's a shame it's so expansive. I think it looks like a great camera to use. Although the next one needs a EVF.

Robert - I have an M and a A7ii, the T feels like a phone, no comparison to the A7. The A7 might not be the best experience as a camera, but its miles ahead of the T, put a nice lens in front of the a7 like a loxia, and the A7 become a really solid piece of equipment. The T might be compared to that samsung camera with android.

Yes the T looks nice as an engineering gadget, but as a camera, is a horrible piece of hi tech...

Great camera to use? It's like shooting an iPhone. I tested one in the Leica store, and it was like shooting a smart phone. Not what I will call a nice experience.
