photophile: Why is that "grittier reality" can only be demonstrated in B&W ? Whatever calamity (man-made, or natural) has only ever been witnessed by Man in colour. Show me your true colours.

Photography in its own right is already an abstraction. It seldom tells all the truth, if any at all. B&W photographs are a further abstraction from that very idea. With photography being used in so many esoteric ways, this photographer choose the medium in which she envisioned would suit her vision or experiences best.

Photographs last much longer than witnesses.

Some people are reading too much into this article, or just simply not reading it.

Marb67: Well at only 20 mp it won't even be as good quality as my D750.

I needed a good laugh today. Thanks

I believe that for the right people this will be a hit. The rest will keep on keeping on with what they have. Everything else at this point is just speculation and hot air.

RStyga: Leica's new fixed lens camera is too bulky and too expensive, and no EVF of FF sensor will compensate for it. An A7II would be a more prudent choice. But Leica's target group of victims is immune to these arguments so happy ending for all..

Perhaps this target group is more concerned about image making than arguments.

AksCT: Conventional model for photography is no longer sustainable. Technology and business model have changed, and this is late reaction.
However, I feel pendulum will swing back, but never to what it used to be.

Very well said.

qwertyasdf: The first one and third one...meh...there's just nothing in it, no skills, no story...
Others are very good, especially the owl in flight, it's so eye catching

There is a story to the first one, just not every one will see it. Your opinion is noted.

EssexAsh: £7 a roll! ah those poor tragic hipsters. I'll carry on buying film for £1 from my local pound store and if i desperately feel the need to get my images looking that crap, i'll just adjust the tone sliders in Lightroom.

Poor tragic post

Worth a try for film advocates. Could produce some nice abstract portraits for those who want to venture form the norm. Some people here have imaginations.

Tom Schum: If I were a working portrait photographer, this would be a must-have!

Not all of us can have imaginations. They are too wrapped up in the technical details to think alternatively.

Individualism is all we really have.

srados: E bay sells cheap Chinese triggers for 16-45$...I do not know why is this such novelty item?

But those are not super cute and flashy. I only want the most hip and trendy accessories for my camera. It's an accentuation of who I am and what I do, and makes my camera feel gooood

A good array of images here; though in my humble opinion a bit more diversity could have great. Number 13 is excellent

Well done Fuji. I like where they are going, although I do sincerely hope that they dont abandon the OVF idea and make a successor to the Pro 1.

Intriguing to say the least. I may be so daring to say that I love the bokeh effects of this lens and the focal length is very useful. I cant wait to try it and look outrageous; that is part of the charm.

If you dislike the Df's performance dont buy it. Simple solution. If you like the A7's or whatever cameras performance better, then buy it. Simple solution. If you simply dont care about digital anything then just shoot your film camera. Simple solution.
