  • Surprise, surprise. Leica has been moving themselves toward obscurity for years. At this point in their history, is ANYONE still expecting them to come out with an exciting, innovative product?

  • LOL.

  • @ JDThomas

    I doubt that.

  • @ JDThomas

    Says the guy who advocates for reading comprehension.

  • So no, he doesn't mean you will drop the camera to the ground the moment you pick it up. You are extending his argument to absurdity and then attacking that. It's called a straw man. I'm not sure...

  • @ JDThomas

    The goal is to try to read for correct comprehension. Proceeding is a matter of sequence. Immediacy is a matter of speed. They are unrelated words. He sees that the camera is less than...

  • @JDThomas:

    That's a straw man. He doesn't mention the word "aluminum" in his original post, nor does he use the word "automatically". You clearly are defending the ergonomics of the camera. He...

  • Wrench handles are small bars which allow the user wrap their entire hand and fingers around the handle, hardly a suitable analogy for defending the ergonomics of a camera, which one has to pinch...

  • Will the 16-55mm F/2.8 not be stabilized?

  • Based on today's hand's on article, it would appear that the Leica touch interface has some issues, to put it politely. Certainly far from "the only camera maker that successfully integrated a...

  • @ Robert Spanjaard: the F-number refers to the diameter of the lens' aperture as defined by the focal length divided by a numerical factor. It directly defines the amount of light which is able to...

  • @ Erik Magnuson: my apologies about the M43 lens f-stop error. You are right. Cheers.

  • @igor_s: It says right inside the article that diffraction is a function of the physical aperture size and not the equivalent aperture number, so the crop sensor camera does not have an advantage...

  • @Gstadter:

    This is not true. Compare the noise levels of a 16mp APS or 12mp M43 sensor to a 24mp full frame sensor. All of these have the same pixel size. You'll find that the full frame sensor...

  • @ Just a Photographer:

    Did you even read the article?

  • The point is that the full frame Sony system is supposed to be significantly better than the M43 system in terms of equivalent aperture. Look at the values you calculated. Yes they look pretty good...

  • Actually, M43 has no advantage in deep DOF. Full frame can just stop down two stops to reach exactly the same DOF and noise level as M43. Think about it...

  • Gstadter,

    You are correct. If you are willing to accept half resolution, then the image from your M43 camera will be no noisier than that from a full frame camera on a per-pixel basis. Remember...

  • You can either double the shutter speed or double the ISO, not both.
