wootpile: I like the first 2 images that show how it barely fits inside 2 model hands because of size and probably weight.
Image 3 is the best though. That's a fat body. What's in there? You could fit several nexes in there. of course they haven't but the fat style is a trademark... and they can't just leave it empty - it would weigh too little to be a Leica...
AHA, the answer to why it is so expensive: they filled it up with gunmetal grey inside too
This camera could have been at least 50% smaller, but then I guess it wouldn't be a Leica. At least not the modern style of one.
I retract my earlier statement - didn't realize it was fullframe. yes, my bad.
I also had Nikons in the day. BUT, they were that size because of technical necessity. Open one up and there is 0 wasted space. What will you find when you open a leica? lots of machined metal, not as much electronics or components as one might think.Still, I won't persist because this isn't something I could ever afford, or want... just wanted to nag a bit :)

L-glass seems to be struggling a bit...
Deardorff: Posting anything about contests without highlighting what rights they want or take is wrong. Too many of these steal the rights and/or are thinly disguised photo grabs for commercial use.
Highlight the terms and conditions. Just telling folks to read does not cut it. You write the article so show what rights the organizers are asking for.
Adults wanting their hands held? I agree with Damien - put some effort in and read the fine print yourselves. Everyone who can't even spend the time to check what rules apply at every venue will be in real trouble in all facets of life. Grow up!
I for one am happy Dpreview has highlighted a number of good competitions I can enter. Saved me lots of time researching!
beavertown: One thing that Canon will always ahead of Nikon is their color rendition.
It compensates their use of inferior sensor.
If Canon used Sony sensor, there would be no competition between C & N in terms of image quality.
The 1" Sony sensor that Canon uses in the G7X tops the 1" sensor chart that proves everything.
I agree with Brendon. Too much sepia tone on every type of Canon shot (except their compacts). I always had to tweak my camera profiles for 5d. not so with Nikon or Pentax. Sony which I now use also requires a bit of tweak, default a bit too plain, sometimes too red
Hugo808: Blimey, big files but not much extra IQ for your trouble. It must be a niche market...
I see it as a studio camera, always base iso with loads of light.
Cool pics. The most interesting part was seeing how well the chosen lenses handled themselves.
Whatever the stats, specs and results.. the tulip sunset image is adarn good shot. Whoever took it deserves a raise.
winkalman: This camera may be nearly unbeatable for backpackers and landscape photographers. Weather sealed, GPS, multi-shot image quality should at least match (and quite possibly exceed) the D800e, small (by DSLR standards), and relatively affordable. They need to get these things into REI or some other premium sporting goods store.
@Christom It's the modern way.. light and ultralight backpacking :)
Add a good lens and it's way too heavy for backpacking these days.
Cudos to Pentax/ Ricoh for delivering good tech with a mount that has so many beutiful lenses (including legacy). But...
Where is the flipscreen? & too darn heavy. Shave off 200 grams on next release please.
While I applaud the quality of Fuji's lenses, I can't see the benefit of 1.4 in a wideangle. Perhaps someone can explain how a ultra fast wideangle that is heavier, larger and more expensive makes any sense as a photographic tool.
A 2.2 lens would have cost half, been substantially smaller and been easier for Fuji to achieve optical results from...
Thank you DPreview for commenting on the difficulty of using a flipout screen that only flips and doesn't rotate..
If Samsung had mounted a fully articulating screen the camera would have been much more enticing and certainly easier to shoot vertical, and closeups.
wootpile: It's a great camera but it should be illegal to sell a camera today that lacks an audio-in jack. Shame. Shame..
I take it you don't do much video..
wootpile: It's a great piece of software - but I refuse to pay a cloud fee for it. over a 10 year - span - PS CC will cost you $1200. hope they go broke.
It's still ridiculous. A much better scheme - which all software suppliers including MS could use is 1 price for installation + individual price for updates - that way you can choose to skip updates for any period of time. Bug-fixes? should be free since they are part of the manufacturing process-- same as if the brakes on your new car has a fault you get a free fix.Pay for installation. Choose to pay for updates.

coody: If you pay for the good lens at additional $2,000, your spending on the camera will be more than $2500. With $2500 you can buy a better DSLR and many choices. Why must go for the A6000? Good camera with poor kit lens but expensive good lens. That is the Sony A6000.
The camera is always going to be second in importance to glass. I would rather spend my $$ on lenses.The order of importance shooter, lens, camera, brand

Becksvart: The EOS M was the most sold mirrorless in Sweden during 2014. Some more lenses, much better AF = going to sell very well in 2015, is my guess. People here are very much married to Canon and Nikon.
Am not entirely sure why you are glad Canikon didn't step up until very late and are now calling out Canon for not aggressively sweeping the market. Would be pretty sad to see 100% of cameras sold in Sweden to be Canons :/ The more makers the merrier most definitely.
Yes, but Swedes are only buying the M kit because of its extremely low price - which is a result of poor sales globally). If Swedes just stopped buying maybe Canon would realize it's time to step up the game. What is the point of having a enthusiast camera with only 2 lens choices, one of which is a so-so zoom? People are buying the M and using it as a point and shoot. Same as buying a SUV and only using it to go grocery shopping.
