starwolfy: This lens sounds quite promising but "Nocticron" ?
That is name is...marketing $!/"@%* lol.

In Leica territory a Noctilux is "currently" F0.95
A summilux is F1.4
A Summicron is F2

So this lens is a mix of F0.95 and F2 all together (Since the use of "Lux" is impossible due to Nocti"Lux") ? lol
A F1.2 lens. Hmmm No ! A Nocticron of course ! xD

I'm not criticizing the lens...but just the name employed.

HowaboutRAW>
I know the first Noctilux was a F1.2 that is why I wrote "current Noctilux" are F0.95.

I'm not talking about F stop or lens quality here, but about the meaning behind the denomination of this lens which is, as Leica do, based on its F Stop.

I've read somewhere that Leica, when they cooperate with Panasonic, don't design these lenses and don't build them. They just "validate" the optical design and share their Name.
That is why the fact Panny is mixing "Noctilux and Summicron" to define this lens is a bit hilarious to me. Despite it may make sense to some, that is pure Leica-Like Marketing.

Again...I am not criticizing this lens. But its name.

A brilliant 2013 camera well fit in our "modern" society.
The best tool for lazy people who don't care, nor have time to spend learning photography. Thank you OMG for this automatic drunken party masterpiece pictures makers.
Thanks to its 28K auto crappy trough-all-in pictures capability I guess we will be able to contribute easier to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or whatever to make sure the world keep a piece of our absolutely essential footprint on the web.
Since the world has never had so much active "photographers" thanks to the web I guess we could all say that the best camera in the world is the camera that is with you that's for sure. I can't wait to see all trendy "photojournalist" launching this new trade by advertising their amazing auto-skills while on duty on field work. lol !
Since in our day anyone with a camera can pretend being a photographer, I guess my dog will be happy to join DPR soon enough with this around its neck.
OMG !!! (not the company name)

Sean65: Note how, in spite of all our advancements in photography, the photos from 1935 are so much better. The framing, depth and clarity are all way more engaging.

I guess in this time being educated in art was more important than in our days.

My wife bought it with the kit zoom and the 40mm pancake.
It's an excellent camera. Very simple to use, superb touch screen. There is lack of buttons so sometimes you have to find your way into the menu but hey it's an entry level camera isn't it ?
The weight is sooooo light you can carry it everywhere. Lenses are ultra silent, focus fast and have great IQ.
I was damn impressed really...it's a very good product by Canon !

v_lestat: Samsung Samsung Samsung
Oh dear lord you people crying Samsung have no idea what on earth you are doing.
If Samsung made a good camera at any price it would be on a list some where of must have cameras.
But it's not.
Not here
Not there
Not anywhere
I own a lot of Samsung gear (phones tv's and more) but I would NEVER buy a Samsung camera because they are garbage and are destroyed by nearly everything on the market in its vertical.
There are even p-n-s cameras better than the NX cameras.

Wow you kids should really use a GOOD camera before call dp review the names you have and imply the childish things you have.

So is DXo mark worthless too?

Show me one Samsung camera on their site anywhere near the caliber of these cameras.

I remember not so long a ago many people were saying: I'll never buy a Toyota because they are garbage cars. Now guess what is the number 1 brand in the world ?
That comment about Samsung cameras is kind of idiotic. Samsung camera, despite being the "best at something" are very nice overall cameras at a decent price.

In reply to:

micahmedia: What a garbage "me too" product. Why remove one of the most desirable features of the Fuji mirror-less cams. I hope this model tanks as a lesson to the entire industry, which causes everyone else to jump on the integrated EVF bandwagon.

...but that ain't likely to happen. Because most people haven't had the experience of using an eye level finder to know how awesome it is.

That is always what I think when someone try to tell me I was a fool buying a real Leica rangefinder. Most people havent'had the experience of using anything else than an electronical viewfinder and focus peaking, so they don't know how a awesome a real rangefinder is.

Troll ON. I would rather buy a Samsung NX300 with a 30mm F2 pancake.

justmeMN: According to camerasizecom it's 17% wider, 12% taller, and 22% heavier than the Canon SL1 / 100D DSLR.

I thought the point of mirrorless cameras was to be light and compact.

Because you think that without mirrorless offerings Canon would have released the Canon 100d ?
You have to think the other around.

In reply to:

mark power: A pretentious video about a pretentious camera. These days if I see someone with a Leica of any kind I see either a rich amateur or an insecure professional who cares how he or she looks. Leica has ceased to be relevant for a long time now and the monochrome camera and this model make my case yet again.

I didn't know in this world it is outrageous to:
1) Have money
2) Enjoy your money
Is there anything wrong being a rich amateur ?

This kind of smartphone rubbish trend is so hilarious.
Yes any good photographer could succeed to produce a great image with any gear.
What I dislike is all this kind of "rebel" trend where people just shoot with smartphone to show the world they are so good they don't need anything more.
Then you hear all the wow and waw and people starting to say: I'll try to use my smartphone more !
If everyone is following the same trend, then it not being rebel anymore.
If some people are serious about photography why they use a smartphone is beyond me. What do they want to prove ? I don't mean they cannot produce the goods with a smartphone but I guess there are plenty better small cameras out there for a small, light and discreet package.
Maybe they like to hide behind the "tourist like" feeling this grants...then they need some more balls maybe.
This pics are great, but it doesn't teach more than the usual photoshop and auto effects. There are tons pics like that on Getty and Flickr.

My wife has a Canon 100d with the kit and 40mm pancake lens.
It is impressively small and light and I've found the IQ quite impressive for a low entry level camera. It's definitely a great camera.

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)

Since most people here seems baffled by Leica, saying they didn't market well their new product etc. Saying that Leica missed the point and nobody here will want one over an already owned NEX7, Fuji X100, or OM-D...etc. I think people here should wake up and understand that this camera was never designed for them.

You are simply not Leica customer target. That doesn't mean you cannot understand the "benefits" of the "counterparts" of owning this camera. That just means you are not the target audience so just move on because this was not design for YOU. You are not part of it and most people commenting here just doesn't have the cash for it anyway.

I don't understand why people stay here waiting for Leica to release a X100s-Leica-something for half the price that would sell like hot cakes like they say. That will never happen. Leica is Leica and demand premium price and that's it. They will never sell cheap.

You don't ask bikers why they chose Harley Davidson over a Kawasaki.

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)

When you are rich, do you really think it's your camera that you will use as a statut symbol ? That is just kind of pathetic... ;)

If it was the case, I guess most people who's only aim is to show off would do it with the biggest possible Nikon or Canon and not with a Leica.

When you show off you want people to recognize you as "rich" or "wealthy".
To bad for Leica haters but maybe 99% of normal people just don't have a clue about what a Leica is !
They will just "wow" and "waaa" when they see your big 5D Mark III with a 80-200mm F2.8 because it looks pro and in people's mind the bigger the more expensive and that's it.

I have a Leica which I take around almost everyday with a 50 lux ASPH or a 35 Lux ASPH. I rarely meet people who know about my camera. Very RARELY !

People just think I am around with a cheap oldie so stop you anger with your "statut Symbol with red logo crap".
