wri7913: I wonder how many of the Sonikon fanboys could shoot without "chimping" their screen every shot.

Back in the days of film, you had to know how to make a photograph using the fundamentals of Photography. You had to think through each shot and imagine how it would look or know how it would look based on your settings.

Today its pixel peepers galore, chasing after the largest megapixel (while either not printing or small prints under 11x14) while preening about their sonikon gear. LOL

Exactly why I still shoot film. You actually have to get the shot right the first time! Of course, both digital and film have their places and fun factor!

Excellent choice for the purist who cannot be bothered with modern day fluff. However, My M6 Titan does exactly the same thing and if I want a digital photo, I just scan my negative!

ybizzle: Exactly the reason why I have the new LG G5. Wide angle lens built in without the need for bulky add ons.

It is not fish eye. It's ultra wide. And 8mp is more that enough for its intended purpose.

ybizzle: Or just get a real enthusiast pocket camera with a big, bright screen and better IQ for the same price and call it a day.

Oh no, I think I really hit a nerve with Mrrowe8. He must have been the only one person who bought one of these things. Either that or he works for dxo. ;).

Buy a real camera and fish eye lens and call it a day.

ybizzle: Remember the good ol' days when you didn't have to worry about this crap and just buy any old 64MB SD card for your 2mp Kodak digicam? I miss 2002...

I actually still have that cam! My very first digital camera!

ybizzle: Both Tamron and Sigma have raised their game and lens quality which rival or beat the same offerings from Canon or Nikon. Bravo!

I can't comment on that but I do know that my Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 on my a99 is razor sharp across the board at a fraction of what Sony charges for their own brand!

Wait 6-8 months and pick up any of these for 60% of original cost. Remember the $1100 Coolpix A? I bought mine a year after release for $400. And that was Canadian dollars!

ybizzle: Or just buy one camera like the Panny FZ1000 and cover most lengths with just one camera from wide to telephoto at a fraction of the total cost of these 3.

Oh sorry, I didn't know stating facts was "nitpicking". It's your money so go head and spend the extra $200 on this vs the $800 FZ1000. All I'm saying is that for most people, one camera is enough to cover their focal length needs. Yes there will be some that may require the extra wider focal lengths, but for most 24-XXX is good enough.

Right but the Panny costs less and is a faster lens at the long end, though slightly shorter focal length.

ybizzle: Come on Nikon, Sony needs more sensor sales and it's not like Canon is going to buy from them any time soon lol.

@ttran88 So Canon shouldn't be self sufficient and rely on other companies to make their sensors? That makes no sense. Other companies do not have the means to make their own sensors so they buy them from Sony. Do you think Nikon would be buying from Sony if they were able to create their own?

Sir Nick of High Point: Nice images! I actually like the colors on #6. It's by far my favorite from this set, but I'm also curious what it would look like in b&w.

On the street photography comment, I don't think weather sealing is necessary, but it might help. Leica M's are not weather sealed.

And on the film grain, I too find it to be over the top, as is the contrast. One advantage of film is the non-linear response to light and smooth highlight roll-off. I find this film filter to look more like a cheap cell phone camera, though it is better than old Olympus grainy film art filter.

M240 is sealed but your older M lenses are not!

$15000? This camera is a bargain at twice the price! The Leica man will not be disappointed.
