If my information is correct, and to summarize that I've read so far -

- The Leica is basically the re-branded Panasonic. The outside is much cleaner, while the insides are probably the same.
- Price difference is +300. Basically 25% more for a better, nicer, cleaner envelope.

Is it worth it?
If I was in the market for this type of camera, I'd take the Leica, FIRM!

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1816 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: I'm surprised at the number of armchair camera designers here who are so upset with Canon for not turning its excellent pro-grade, deliberately built for action photography, APS-C camera into just another consumer grade, jack of all trades, wannabe pro pretender. Meanwhile, the real camera designers and engineers at Canon will again be laughing all the way to the bank as the EOS 7DII proves once again to be the only true professional level APS-C interchangeable lens camera system in existence, today, tomorrow, and into the foreseeable future. :)

Why do you think the 7DII is the only true APS-C Professional camera?

Nevermind Nikon, but you are implying that none of the mirrorless are pro-level cameras?

arhmatic: The iPhone is probably the most used camera mainly because it's in your pocket. I've been using one daily since 2007.

Otherwise, is below average, I have to sadly admit... No exposure compensation, no ISO, interface nowhere near Nokia's....

@Mrrowe8 - I am sure you are not imagining I am using an old, 2007 iPhone, right? I've been using them all since 2007 - Fist gen, 3G, 4, 5 --- at the moment they were released, nowhere near Nokia or Samsung. Is it safe to assume that the 6 plus would be good for 2012, but this is 2014 right?

5.5 - 6" is more and more common. This will be standard in not too much time. If Apple is not doing at least 5" on the next iphone, they are pretty much out.

On Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap to end of 2015 article (171 comments in total)
In reply to:

kwa_photo: I do love how Fuji is about as open and transparent as they can be to help their users make informed decisions. It enhances loyalty to the brand IMO.

Agreed, when it comes to lenses. On the other hand, there is some ambiguity if they will go full frame or now, which makes some users hold off purchases in lenses --- myself included.

Latest rumors say it will stay aps-c, which I like better.

Great to push the boundaries.
Sony has been really innovative with many photography products over the years.

Apple has been lagging behind for years now. They are still good at marketing... Little chances I will get yet another iPhone, regardless.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1533 comments in total)

Call this off topic if you will, but can anyone speculate why can't nikon fit the guts of the d810 in a body the size if the nikon F2?

Nothing more, noting less, just the size of the F2... Not for the retro looks, just for the size and portability.

Same bubbly design, but sure, we are all pros, ergonomics are important, style, look, portability is not important, right?

In reply to:

SeeRoy: "Weather-resistant"
A worthless designation, now popular with many manufacturers since it actually costs nothing to offer. What are the chances of getting a warranty replacement/repair when these weasel-words fail to protect the electronics from water ingress? Slim I'd say. You'd be told you got it "too wet".

WR - It's just a marketing thing... Nobody is going to shoot in pouring rain. You get wet, the front element gets wet, you can't see... Dust? Well, if you care about your gear, you clean the lenses on regular basis, regardless...

On New camera app features in Apple's iOS 8 post (67 comments in total)

What this really needed since 2007 was an exposure compensation button.
A simple +/- thing.
Yes, everything else is welcome, but this is really basic.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

Really surprised how good the movie quality is...
Especially when compared to the Fujifilm cameras.

Either Sony is really good, along with Panasonic, or Fujifilm is that bad. Really like Fujifilm otherwise, got many pieces from them...

saralecaire: This can be done with any Windows tablet/netbook with a 4G router or mobile phone. There are free software already out there which allows for this, so there is nothing innovative here.

Yes, and this whole system would be outdated if there was no issue with the data speed over 4G.

On Nokia releases update to its Camera Beta app post (18 comments in total)

Nokia has the most functional interface in the industry, by a large margin. Period.

The Android based ones are nowhere near.
Apple's is really a joke, where all you got is a button... Can't believe how many shots I've missed by being with the iPhone ever since it was launched, 2007...
