  • My loyalty just evaporated.

  • Fine. It was the Aperture concept that tempted me to Mac. As much as I love the Mac, and OSX, it is only Aperture that really ties me to it. My next computer is therefore not necessarily a Mac....

  • So, when will the first light field digital picture frames be available? I liked the effect shown in the photo presentation, but it left me feeling a MacBook Air is not the best place to enjoy...

  • I think I learned a lot from it (mainly to use a smaller aperture, the S mode, and auto ISO next time :-)).  Amazing what we learn when we leave our comfort zones.... https://www.flickr.com/photos/ ...
  • Software correction works, and it works well.  I find it hard to believe that the zoom doesn't have some software corrections, given its size.  I'm relaxed about this, but wonder about the price ...
  • Oh dear. So much for the cost of these lenses. I'm sure they're good, but the purchase price suddenly look questionable....

    Edit: BTW, I'm absolutely happy with software correction. It has...

  • You can pay a lot of money for something that will be out of date, a couple of years down the line.  On the other hand, my six year old Panasonic L1 (identical twin to the Leica Digilux 3) takes ...
  • We have a lovely Victorian municipal park, at the end of our street. https://www.flickr.com/photos/jason_hindle/14057218523/ The Park at The End of The Street, ©2014 Jason Hindle
  • For everyone else a fast zoom, starting at 2.8, is really 3.5 because 2.8 is mediocre. For Leica, an f3.5-5.6 lens should be superb at 3.5. Is it worth it?  Well the value is in the eye of the ...
  • I reckon they'll sell more of these than they can make, without actually threatening any other manufacturer.  It's a different market.  If money were no object, I'd be in line for one. Of course, ...
  • But just as the X Vario was the second coming of zoom (I forget who coined that term - it wasn't me), it looks like the first zoom lens for T is the second coming kit zoom (if the term kit-zoom ...
  • The colours actually look nicer than what Olympus have been achieving with their 16MP sensor (which is good, but those famous Olympus blue skies haven't been quite the same, since they made their ...
  • Is that price with a kit lens? It's actually pretty keen by Leica standards, but it faces stiff competition from Panasonic, Olympus, Sony and even Samsung.

  • And none of them are at the maximum resolution this camera should be capable of....

  • Tempting. A camera with no auto focus, no built in meter, but at the same time capable of large format film IQ (if you get it right, behind the camera). At the price, it's worth a punt, but I'd...

  • It's amazing how many great cameras, for no discernible reason, don't sell particularly well*.  Also, the E-M1 was a particularly newsworthy camera, being Olympus's pro replacement for its E-X ...
  • Replied in I like it
    Especially how, from the parents, you can work out who takes after who :D .
