LOL, hopefully the M bodies/lenses are made by Leica, not Sunny Optical... because then Leica is just a certification company
kodachromeguy: I am impressed that Leica is putting out these lenses for their T. But why did they not make these T lenses also available in another mount, such as Fuji X or Sony? I have never seen a T camera even in popular tourist places.
You should go where rich tourists go.
Who cares about IQ? This is a camera lens combo that is meant to be lug around whenever there are people.
Hugo808: Does the price include a team of Sherpas to carry it around for you?
no but it includes a small team of cheerleaders dancing and shouting I love Leica...
vesa1tahti: I'll keep my D7200 with it's 10 lenses. Nikon is winner, Fuji takes the second place.
I have nikkors lenses, optically not as good as Fujinons. So yeah, better carry 10 mediocre lenses for sure.
seriously DPR, no other lenses worth reviewing more?
Canon has no shame, clearly.
FantasticMrFox: First thought: "Wait, I read about the 'new' Canon 100-400 quite some time ago. Is there another version now?!"
Then the realisation that no, there isn't. This lens has been out for about 1.5 years now, why even bother with a review?
Because many Canon shooters are interested? I know I am
Must be a rare photo.
Andrew Elliott: If only Pentax would release lenses very very similar to these.
matthew saville: As I sit here reading this, if I look to my left towards my camera gear shelves, on the topmost shelf that is reserved for display I see four cameras, three of which were inherited from my two grandfathers.
There's a Nikon FM2 which I bought on Ebay, (I'm currently a Nikon shooter) a Nikon FG, a Sawyer's Mark IV, (a TLR knock-ff that shot Kodak "super slides"; I still have some trays and the projector)
...and an Asahi Pentax K1000 with a 50mm f/2 and 135mm f/3.5.
As an Astro-Landscape photographer, I'm strongly considering getting the K-1 plus a couple Rokinon primes. It'll cost FAR less than a D810A!!!
what does m4/3 have to do with this discussion? LOL. For astrolandscapes and alike, m4/3 is the worst choice. And 135mm is actually usable for certain shots. Speaking about portraits, I also prefer FF cameras over smallish sensor - or at least APS-C...
QuarterToDoom: Now only if it was 4:3 photo size format i'd be right in.
Clearly you are the oly/panny fanboy. Nothing to see here then
Aroart: I find it amusing that people will hate this camera because of no 4k and those same people would not need or use 4k to its full benefits .... but a real film maker Casey Neistat uses a 70d for most of his vlogging...This is a you tube vloggers dream come true camera...
Those who dismiss 4K mean they don't give a darn about video. Got it? If video is SO important to you, look elsewhere. How difficult is that?
the rants over no-4K thing is getting lame
I left Pentax and regrettably sold my Limited lenses 8 years ago but I still have plenty of Takumar M42 and A lenses. Would love to have the K-1!!
MarwanGhazi: too late and unprepared to join the competition.
@MarwanGhazi - OTOH, you are ready for some fanboy competiton.
micke69: Ricoh obviously has no clue what its customers want. First they release a follow up model that is basically the same as the old one, then they make an anniversary model that is even worse by being shiny and conspicuous. The very thing the typical user wouldn't want!
Psst...Ricoh is trying to attract Leica users.
Oh wow Ricoh just pulled a Leica!!
kewlguy: I'm sure the X70 is a good camera but these samples are just ugly. Many not well exposed, not carefully taken photos. Pity, maybe because it's not a sony, no oh Wow kinda thing ;)
Nahh, I stand corrected. If they want to show high iso performance, at least find real low light situation. Who underexposes and shoots high iso in broad daylight? At least repeat the same scene from iso200 to iso800 for the sake of comparison. Lenstip, photozone, all take better sample shots, they just don't provide the raw, too bad.
@Greynerd - those photos look like normal circumstances - if you never shoot with other than a mobile phone.
