My 2 cents

75mm F1.8 has the same DOF no matter what format camera its mounted on.

DOF of this lens is perfect for portraits.

No need to stop it down.

Lots of special glass reduces the need for post corrections.

You get what you pay for and this lens is worth every penny and it will not drop in price for a long time.

In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: Dpreview scores are definitely tainted. The D800 and 5Dm3 get the same score? So despite having 36mp and being $500 USD cheaper, you guys feel the 5D mark III is equal to the D800? The cons for the D800 are more like niggles, while the cons for the 5Dm3 are issues of concern. And even stated on the 5Dm3 review itself "Scoring is relative only to the other cameras in the same category." Yeah right.

Are you passed the 30 day return on your D800? Don't worry, its still just as good of a camera that it was a few days ago.

Why does the final score not take into consideration if your a Canon or Nikon fanboy?

This is a easy fix DPreview...just add a few points to the score based on what forums the users QQ's at the most.

Cipher: Here comes the crying! The fact that it has the same score as the D800 is no coincidence. lol.

The excrement is about to hit the dyson air multiplier.

peevee1: Sorry, but $1300 is WAY too much.

You get what you pay for. I would expect very good performance from this lens.
Here is ephotozine:
-Excellent sharpness, especially in the centre
-Low distortion
-Weather sealed build
-Fast focusing
Constant f/2.8 aperture
-Image stabilisation
-Compact size
Only CON: Although the high price is typical of pro spec f/2.8 zooms, it may put this lens beyond the reach of many

In reply to:

sethmarshall: How is this considered "first constant-aperture standard zoom for a mirrorless system"? It isn't at all.

You have nearly the same focal range with an additional stop of light and constant-aperture with the Olympus 14-35!?

Its made for a normal DSLR with a mirror.

Mssimo: For all "my camera can do it" comments. Your camera is not a Leica; it does not use M lenses (or you could not afford them), It does not have "clear" pixel filter (color filters cut light by at least 1/3) and your camera will be worth crap in 4 years, this camera will be worth much more money as they years fly by, this is a collectors item. You feel more like a photographer than a button pusher.
You guys sound worse than a 10 year old kid, telling you that his iphone 4s pictures look as good as a full frame DSLR...only difference is that a 10 year old's ignorance is cute.

I will never buy one of these cameras. I use u4/3 and FF cameras. What I was trying to say is that you don't compare a Rolex watch to a Timex. A Timex can do a better job at keeping time but it will never be cross shopped with a Rolex. The camera is a timeless work of art like every other Leica before it. (I dont include the PnS models)

You don't really get it. Its not about the camera or its sensor.

In reply to:

armanius: Surely Leica could have at least used a nicer LCD! My M9's LCD is worse than the one from the Oly E410's dating 2007 or 2008.

I think the glass on the LCD is the same stuff they put on Rolex watches.

I think leica should come out with three lens filters (RGB) So people with this camera can take 3 images and merge them like old times!
