In reply to:

Harry Lane: Sony crammed too many pixels into an aps-c sensor, too many artifacts present in high iso pictures, and the noise reduction algorithm is smearing fine detail. The quality of Canon T2i photos with its 18-55mm lens + 18mp aps-c sensor clearly trumps that of Sony with its 18-55mm lens +24mp aps-c sensor.
And the Canon combo is about $600 less than the Sony combo. Is the Sony combo worth the $600 premium? I don't think so.

People pay 6x as much for a Leica M9-P that can only get to ISO 2500, and the in-camera JPEG engine leaves a bit to be desired. These high-ISO shots look way better. Keeping in mind that this is pre-production, in-camera, yada, yada, yada, the NEX-7 looks to be a highly credible street shooter. Plus at 24 megapixels, this camera has encroached into medium format digital resolutions. I AM NOT saying this is as good as MFD! But, when viewing images at this resolution, pixel peeping does not cut it. Print the image big (20x30 minimum) to see how good it really is.

Again, very usable image. Considering this is a pre-production in-camera JPG file, I have high hopes that production RAW images will be quite spectacular.

Never catch one of my cats doing that (swimming or kissing someone on the face).

That's why I am ordering this camera with the Zeiss 24 mm and keeping a couple of my CV M-lenses.

This is an extremely usable image even at ISO 6400. My M8 looks 5x worse than this at ISO 2500.

On Leica launches M9-P professionally targeted rangefinder news story (100 comments in total)

Leica M rangefinders are a different breed of cat. A camera that requires a more thoughtful approach to photography. It is very small and very durable. My M8 is still chugging along cranking out great shots. I would really consider the silver chrome version as the black version is painted and I hate it when it starts to rub off (leicaphiles call it "brassing" and view it as a badge of honor - I'd prefer my really expensive camera to not rub off on my hands).
