TN, admit it you are jealous in face of such imagination. Frankly, I don't want to be hard on Baznani here...he has put together a consistent and persistent body of work around a straightforward idea, which can be summed up as "honey I shrunk the kids". The question you are raising is about dpreview editor, who titled the article, not the photographer...

rondom: Too bad the conductor is facing the audience...other than that, perfect.

Well, I meant facing the opposite side of stage, maybe facing the "seats" would have been a better word...but jacs is right they have probably rehearsed long enough together.

rondom: Leica folks usually are good at emphasizing the "je ne sais quoi" aspect of their cameras and lenses, and refuse to judge their cameras based on absolute image quality, sharpness, resolution etc.
but ironically, the mono is the ultimate pixelpeeper's camera, and its strength, which I don't deny at all, lies at pixel level analysis and comparison against other cameras.
I guess what I'm trying to say is the following: if you are interested in the "big picture", I don't understand the point for this, and if you are a pixel peeper, then in my mind, you are kind of denying the Leica legacy...curious to hear your take based on this very point.

Don sata: thanks for this...I am not very knowledgeable of every Leica offering. I am personally not interested in clinical perfection neither, and when people talk about unmeasurable qualities of their Leica lenses, I don't feel like challenging them at all. But this camera seems to be about nothing but measurable perfection, hence the point of my comment. If I'm wrong, I sure would like to be corrected.

it is interesting: nobody talks about the winners but the photographer that established the grant. i don't want to raise this as an argument against Reichmann..not at all...but it is obviously not the purpose of this type of initiatives.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1864 comments in total)

This camera is excellent looking until you start shooting with it, and then it looks like a dog with an erection. The built in cap makes it even worse.
One other point: I don't think anyone would be jumping up and down if they saw the lens performance before the built in digital lens correction kicks in.
(Having said that I can understand the enthusiasm over this)
