Unlike the x-vario this new leica camera is priced right. Also with hundereds of m mount lenses avlaible on used market this will make sense to anyone who owns a leica M.
I would love to see some video samples shot from this camera. Since it is a medium format camera, DOF is going to be super thin compared to a 35mm camera. Great job by pentax on bringing this monster to the market.
Unluckily its not going to seen from the part of India where I live. Will have wait it for the next one.
My jaw just dropped to the floor. Insane low light capability on this new camera.
There is one video of this product on youtube already. It looks like a decent product.
beautiful photos. I need to borrow a microscope soon for shooting bugs.
qwertyasdf: Next project: an endoscope
Just googled smartphone endoscope and I found this- https://www.anthonyproducts.com/store/p-1113-clearsight-smartphone-adapter.aspx
Someone might have already done it. Smartphones seem to have the craziest add-on accesories available on market.
this looks like a camera target towards travellers and might compete with likes of Canon SX-xxx series of camera. I wont mind a smaller zoom range and larger sensor and faster lens on a similar looking camera.
after reading rave reviews of D7000 and D800 I had bought Nikon DSLR and Lenses. But after facing leaking oil on both the camera and frustrating experience with their service department. I got rid of Nikon kit and went back to Canon cameras. Shame on Nikon with sub-par handling of known issues on their cameras.
Todays announcements from Olympus and Sony shows difference between a camera manufacturer and a consumer electronics manufacturer. I am really tempted to get a mirrorless camera from either Fuji or one of m43 camera makers as a carry around camera for macro work.
Wow, the macro light is awesome. I am placing a pre-order for that one today.
Videographers wet dream.
I am really interested in the film duplicator, I have tons of old films that I need to be digitised.
14-42 looks like a good lens for small m4/3 camera. I will wait for reviews to see how does it compare to Panasonic 12-32 lens.
I guess this camera will support the larger telephoto lenses that Fuji is planning to release in near future. I just want Fuji to release a 90/100mm macro lens with 1:1 magnification ratio before I decide to buy into the X-system.
for the price its really a good deal.
d10694: So we buy a camera because it's very small, and then buy something to make it bigger so that we can hold it. Obvious.
Thanks for the comparison, it was just in time for me. I am currently looking at replacing 10 year old tripod head.
Finally I can replace my old SX-10 IS with a new weather sealed camera. Price seems pretty decent as well.
