wet cleaning is not the cause of this, Leica are spinning a turd.
leblase: This seems like a very disappointing camera: I find the quality of the pictures displayed pretty lousy, lacking sharpness and detail. It also seems either the machinery or the lenses provide quite a poor color separation ability.Really, quite a surprise, as I was hoping for something better or at the least more mature.I do not see anything in it that gives sense to the medium format advantages, and many of its inconveniences.All in all (except for the price), when compared to the Blad, it's really not a good deal.As pointed by the authors one really has to wait for someone to come up with a better proposition
lol.....another hero joins DPR.
Samsung have to drop their prices to attract customers who already have a system.
............."but the E-M5 arguably began to look a bit dated when the cheaper model came on the market."
What a stupid statement....come on Brittany, lift your game.
@HowaboutRAW............"My biggest concern, though, was the image quality. While I wouldn't expect the X to match my DSLRs for autofocus, I do expect decent images and found the camera's DNG files to be inadequate. I often like to shoot subjects when back-lit or in high contrast lighting situations and have come to expect Raw files with enough latitude to work with, even in difficult lighting."..who cares how good the lens is.
excellent product, highly recommended.
minzaw: My bet is DPR would score LX100 GOLD award in upcoming review?
@ChrisLumix .... i love Apples :)...never met Mr Mac, so can't comment.
Some fool asked me what Raw program i used after i made a comment on the price of this unit, well after a very good perusal of images produced and shown here i find them average and once again, for $899 its a NO.Its a no for jpegs, its a no for raw.Its just another ok camera, nothing ground breaking like the X100 was......and if you want to feel better, buy the leica version, whatever they call it.
intruder61: for $899...Noaround the $500...maybe.its nothing special.
@HowaboutRAW......How much are they paying you?
you can't half tell, its like they are having an affair....love is blind.
for $899...Noaround the $500...maybe.its nothing special.
One for Bruce and one for Steve.
Wonderful "wifey" camera.
The Canon G7x image is a total blur....redo it.Seriously DPR.
Too many guys believe the BS hype the manufacturers are throwing at you about how good these compacts are, then when they don't perform to what you want it to, out come the guns....compacts are compacts are compacts, small sensors, nothing special, it is what it is....and here is the special, you get shafted by paying premium price....entry level DSLRs with APSC sensors for less $$ are a whole lot better value...oh yeah i forgot, the DSLRs dont fit in your back pocket while you're having coffee down at the cafe.
@ 1:35 .....its gotta be the highlight :)
Dude worked for Leica.
If they make an AMG version I'll buy it.
JaimeA: Reading the specifications we found out that this camera has NO image stabilization. Totally nuts if you like closeups, interior and night shots.
I just checked...none of my film cameras have IS, if only, I've been ripped off.
Meh........waiting for the fuji xpro2, even if its another 12 months.
