When Leica introduces a new innovative camera...

Hollywood gag writers get a little more perk over their dull routine coffee...

AlanG: Can it pause for a couple of minutes after shooting 36 exposures? That's a feature I need.

Leica will soon come out with a sensor algorithm that will process and give out your image in 3 working days... just like old times...

More intrigued by what model name will come after this series... as there is an existing 100D up the road...

The new features are so predictable.

The model naming continuity is much more interesting to contemplate on...

Leica will soon be coming out with a PATCH for older models of their cameras...

It is a sturdy tough black tape to PATCH over your existing LCD screens.

A bargain at $857.99 on line stores only, while supply lasts.

Nikon: "Eureka! We have discovered a better way to burn fuel by compressing it with a gigantic compressor, then squeezing it into the combustion chambers via a gigantic pump, instead of the aspirated carburetor! Voila!"

Customers: "But, but... Nikon, FUEL INJECTION has been the way since decades ago!"

Nikon: "Oh!... Really?..."

$90 seems a good price...

But, but, could you come out with a life size model of a "Motorola Brick" that could swallow my iPhone? THAT will surely make heads turn...

*[whispers]*....

Psst, Nikon... there is a better way than all of this crap...

Get rid of the reflex mirror.

This lens has the potential to be a best seller.

Unless users would keep it a "Best Kept Secret".

Just when you thought cameras were getting smaller and pocketable...

Along comes a Lazarus to change your mindset and your biceps.

Huge is not dead. It was just hibernating.

Looks promising.

The technology is there, no problem.

The big Lebowsky challenge is how to convince Hollywood and Bollywood directors and producers to embrace the system.

The current system being used will try to hold their fort, of course.

Better team up with the ILM boys.

$32,995.00 ?

No problem.

Here, hold my "Leica SPO-Telyt-R 1:5.6/1600mm" while I get some loose change from my tight jeans...

They should have focused on Defense and Military Strategy.

The FLIR tech of today's missile technology are the obsolescence of tomorrow's armaments.

Same with Lytro.

The Pentax MX, a Reflex Camera, with a 50mm 1.8 is smaller in body footprint.

If Sony could make it at least THAT small, then mirrorless would be impressive.

But no.

This 50mm lens is just a lazy DSLR nifty 50 with a permanent entender welded to the back of the barrel. Just look at that wasted space between the aspherical lens (purple) and the mounting flange where the reflex mirror would normally be.

This whole things is just PART 1...

Now show us, in Macro Mode, the RETRACTING LENS MECHANISM.

Pretty please...

CameraLabTester: Hold your horses and don't worry folks... It's just an APPLICATION for Patent.

April Fool or not, they may get to hold of this for about 14 to 20 years, depending on Utility or Design application.

But don't expect any development from Canon.

They just want to hold their aces up their armpits for this silly idea.

They cant even implement EYE CONTROL® on their DSLRs, let alone this.

.

"they may get hold of this"... means approved. If ever they get approval, they can hold on to it for 14 to 20 years depending on the Utility or Design patent.

CameraLabTester: Image No.9

Look at that mile long distance from Aspherical Element to Mounting Flange!

What's the point of Mirrorless body when you have this HUGE whiskey barrel?

[Notice how Canon has the rearmost element almost popping out the casing!]

This is a lazy el-cheapo lens design.

The optical formula is similar to a full frame DSLR.

The wasted space at the rear of the lens is where the reflex mirror would be located.

Lazy shortcut design.
