Mike FL: So far, FUJI only has ONE weather sealed IS lens.

T1 is not a bad body, but too bad.

As references:

- SONY has 4 OIS+sealed E- lens

- 8 sealed MFT lens for OLY

- 18 sealed lens for Pentax

It is system camera.

Clearly you're just a gearhead. Sorry, but, *pentax* lenses? You'd be very lucky to find one that is well-centered and the variation is HIGH. Not to mention only few Pentax lenses actually have good optics/resolution. I used to be a Pentax user and I still keep some lenses (limiteds and MF). The new DA zooms are mostly meh. Fuji may not have too many OIS and WR lenses, but most of the lenses in the line up are excellent. Totally different class. So yeah you're good in pure statistics. I give you that ;)

Peter CS: Never mind a weather-sealed x-mount, fixed focal length lens. Biggest weather threat is changing lenses in a harsh environment. For this reason, I want the Fuji- X mount 10-24mm and all their other zooms to be weather-sealed for my landscape and hiking trips! I have a hard enough time just keeping my sensor clean - while changing lenses - in good weather...

WR lenses allow you to take photo under the less-than-ideal weather or harsh environment not to keep changing lenses. Get the 16-55 if you want WR zoom.

Robert Kempen: Now let me see, who shall I believe

The endless BS from the Leica haters, or the reviews coming in from real professional photographers who actually use cameras to make a living

Oh yes and then there is the price of course - haters want the very best but cannot afford it - it is always the same is it not - the same crappy comments from the same idiots who cannot afford Leica

Just get a life - you don't like it or cannot afford it, move on and go talk your BS around your barbecue and leave the forum to people who appreciate the efforts from the camera manufacturers

There's a fanboy and there's a professional....fanboy! LOL

cgarrard: Buying it. Good price, good features, seems like a good optic with two ED elements. A nice focal for casual photography. Done, this is what Fujifilm needs more of.

Same here. Looks like a good compact optic.

semorg: Hahaha LOL! Who is this camera for? Hulk?

I'm sure even Hulk prefers something less fugly! Green version maybe? But no worries, it's Leica. They will put some engraving BS and different color, call it limited and sell it at twice the price ;)

I just read another hands on review on the rumor site, it says Leica put everything people like about mirrorless into the SL. Really?? I love my mirrorless small and easy to carry!

Marty4650: The Canon EOS M series was NOT designed to compete in the MILC market.

It's sole function is to provide Canon brand loyalists with a MILC camera to prevent them from buying a competitive brand. And when you look at it that way, it has been a raging success.

If you want a better MILC camera and a better value, then Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Samsung, and Panasonic all have one for you. It just won't have a Canon name on it.

Correct. I use Canon DSLRs (4 FF bodies) but when it comes to MILC, I use Fuji, and not one of this piece of cr@p called M series from Canon.

Should have been called a Tamtax or Penron lens.

p5freak: High end glass, but focus by hand, ridiculous. Hello Zeiss, the manual focus age is over, since decades. Canon and Nikon bodys and not build for manual focus. What is a razor sharp lens good for, when you cant focus it properly ?
A modern lens has to support on sensor phase detection autofocus. Thats the most accurate way to focus, to get the sharpest possible pictures.

@vscd - Leica uses RF for focusing which is very precise. It works well even in low light. OTOH, DSLR uses AF-assist which is not 100% accurate. In that case, I prefer AF for the sake of comfort and speed...

FuhTeng: I'm looking forward to the super-tele comparison tests that are inevitably on the way. The 200-500 f5.6 is appealing.

I'm hoping Ren Kockwell will cover it.

disraeli demon: Still no affordable, compact 24mm f2 lens for APS-C - I guess if you're into primes, Nikon (and Canon) expect you to upgrade to full frame.

get a Fuji and call it a day?

In reply to:

mgm2: These images are indeed nice, but quite frankly I am not sure they are better that what I get with my Pentax K3 and the Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro.

different kind of drawing, CA, micro contrast, etc.

The images were converted using ACR, has it been C1 Pro 8.3, Iridient, or Photo ninja, the image quality would have been even better.

I had to pick the 3rd sample when buying ZE 25/2. Event the 3rd one is far from perfect (still slightly decentered, 5% of the image mushy on the left side) - but I had to accept because Zeiss said it's expected given it's a retrofocus lens... So having so many sub contractors is not really a good thing - maybe...

Nice shot! Despite what the typical DPR gearheads said...
