Ha ha! Love those reptiles!
Really nice shot. Balanced. Invites close observation. Intriguing.
Fooey, I'm 99 cents shy of the price.
Pat Cullinan Jr: EVF? Sold! Hope it doesn't fall off, though.
If the first iteration had offered an EVF, it would've been reasonably exciting. Can't help feeling that the III is mildly anticlimactic. Did someone say boring? With 9 digicams in the sock drawer, I'm jaded. I'm torn -- should I buy the III, or should I enter a monastery in the Egyptian desert?
I can't help myself. Stop me before I buy again. Lash me to a chair and keep me out of the moonlight.
Those bloated plutocrats should simply give Huff a few million for the lot and have done with it. But no, they want it for nothing.

Anyone know what "drehkopf" means?
arndsan: wow - a flip screen and a better design then the Leica T.
What? This isn't the Leica T?
valdazis: a Porche with Hyundai engine inside :)
And it's pronounced POR-SHUH.
John Roy: Infrared, it hasn't got any sort of battery door, plastic or otherwise. The bottom of the battery sits flush with the camera body.
>what does the VF cost????
blink667: Beautiful camera, but $2000 for $500 worth of performance?
All off a sudden I feel like entering a monastery in the Egyptian desert.
shigzeo ?: Ridiculous product. For the same price I could purchase 1500 bags of Jelly Bellies.
Heck, I could buy enough paint to coat the whole mother ship and have enough to do the rocking chair.
Lucas_: Very beautiful design, interesting set of features and accessories. Since it's a Leica, with all the passion and value that that entails, talking about the price isn't elegant as the camera is, so I keep my mouth shut. I remember when I had a Leica, an M2 plus two lenses: the Summicrons 50mm f2 and 90mm f2, back from 1970-1972. Just superb... not affordable any longer for me. This one has a Sony sensor, the NEX3's modified ( no anti-alias filter ) - sign of the times and another hit for Sony!
Hmmm. If I just parachuted in and looked at these images, I would have thought they'd been made with a moderately priced camera. For example, image L1000279 (big bird balanced on a branch) doesn't look that sharp. The Fujifilm X100S looks better. Strictly unscientific opinion. Willing to hear from others.
Après ma mort, je ferais tomber une pluie de roses,Je veux passer mon ciel à faire du bien sur la terre.
RichRMA: Maybe Fuji can do something about that annoying blank area above the lens?
I drill a couple of holes in it.
Jes' kiddin'! ;)
TheAlexMoore: Oh, what a continuing disappointment...! Digital camera engineering deserves better.Mirrorless rangefinder cameras with manual focus should be a done deal by now. I suppose I'm as easily seduced by novelty features and shiny new digital gizmos as most, and to be fair to all the gadget-heads who are prepared to put up with costly digital gear that looks OK on the outside but still doesn't deliver then you have to admit that Fuji's corporate profit-taking is not as mean as the rest. I mean, it's nice to see Fuji is keeping some form of stabilising eye-level viewfinder. These are time-tested. They not only allow image composition in bright daylight but help steady a camera, something not possible using cut-rate contemporary mirroless, viewfinderless digital toy still and mobile/cell phone cameras at absurd arms-length fashion.
Right on target re the viewfinder!
T3: Now my only question is: black or silver?
This is going way over my head.
topstuff: Image Quality is not fantastic. Seems on a par with my RX100.
I do not think it really matters here.
I think I will buy one, if only because of G.A.S.
Shame about the 30p video though.
I really like that avatar.
Closest focusing distance = ?
In Auto mode, is ISO allowed to surpass 1600?
And how much will that excrescence of an EVF set me back?
I have the G1 X and I was in hopes that the first two points I raised might have been addressed, or redressed. Instead, it's off with his viewfinder!
