They could have at least put the new 20MP sensor in !
@yabokkie I think everyone here is sick of your trolling.
Incredibly aesthetic !
Mssimo: How do they get blue or green?
green = white - red - blue...
Anadrol: Awesome picture !Would it be possible to get it in full res ?
Thank you !!
Very kind of you :) Where was it taken ?
Awesome picture !Would it be possible to get it in full res ?
Really amazing shot ! Congrats.
Impressive !!Any chance we could get it in higher res please ?
pumeco: I've never owned a Leica but have always had respect for their design; I generally love the Leica lines, and I understand perfectly how the designer was thinking when I see a Leica Camera.
Not so in this case, it just doesn't look very "Leica" to me.
There are elements I like, such as the large round viewfinder and the simple but elegant strap eyelets, but that's as far as it goes. Edge placement and even placement of the famous red dot looks wrong by Leica standards. I have no doubt as to the quality of the camera, but from a design point of view, I think it should have retained the classic Leica minimalist but chunky feel they achieved with the M series, but adapted it for the taller SLR style camera we have here.
Too many curves.
I really don't think people buy this camera for the looks...
A clever way of getting rid of their stock of antic Kodak sensors !
ginsbu: Now make a version for mirrorless! 10mm is a useful FL on both APS-C and 4/3-sized sensors.
Of course, a 6 or 7mm specifically for m4/3 would be welcome too!
@Francis Carver, if a lens is built for an EVIL camera, a different optical formula can be used (compared to a design for a longer flange distance), and therefore the lens can be made smaller, "please try to understand it"...
tkpenalty: they mention its rectilinear; this lens has zero distortion. If samyang manages to pull this off, this will be one of the best primes by a long shot. I cant wait to try this out on a x pro1 lol!
By rectilinear, they just mean that it's not a fisheye !
Making a camera with 3G and Android... but that doesn't make calls, how stupid is that !
I hope that Cyanogen mod will be ported to it !
Perfect composition !
Awesome shot, you pushed the camera to the extreme !
plasnu: Focus peaking is coming?
I'm not interested by the X-Pro 1 because focus peaking is missing,but I guess that Sony has patents on it.
Anadrol: 230,000 dot rear LCD... Leica are good for jokes.
If I pay 6800 euros I expect to have a display as good as 200€ compacts.I bet that next year there will be a special edition with improved display, like the M9-P with sapphire glass...
A good LCD would cost them maybe 50 euros, a shameful way of cutting corners.
230,000 dot rear LCD... Leica are good for jokes.
Jogger: This is basically the Rolex of cameras; more status symbol/jewelery... impeccable craftsmanship and timeless design, but it doesnt keep time any better.
Buy an Audemars Piguet, that's real status :D
