dpreview has always been extremely harsh on Leica. What's the motivation for dpreview to write this article? Why didn't dpreview just contact Leica and then write the article once the battery was received? No, instead preview decided to write this article to make Leica look like a bunch of fools. This article is the ultimate troll.

On Never lose your lens cap again with HACkxTACK article (165 comments in total)

What a frivolous product; and the price $24 CAD.

What's really saddening is that DP Review actually posts this product on its website.

Really outstanding photos. Some of the best I've seen on this website.

Vetteran: Many, many photographers never intervene when any "normal" person would think that they should. Photographers who do not intervene or act think they have a higher calling to "bear witness" and spread the truth; which is B.S. I've seen it for myself at car accidents, a drowning, and at other situations where any person would feel morally and ethically compelled to do something. Instead the "photographer" just takes pictures instead of helping.

Owning a camera does not obviate the responsibility to do the right thing at the right time. Photographers are not exempt or special, although, in many cases, they think they are. A disgrace; really.

She could have put here camera down and helped without losing any of the impact of her total body of work.

Put the camera down and do something.

The F4s (remember that camera) had a mirror box that literally would self-destruct over time. Very small particles of metallic "dust" would accumulate inside the mirror box. Wasn't noticeable on film because film always was replaced after 36 or so shots. So, point is, Nikon has had similar issues in the past. not surprised.

Too bad because I was seriously interested in buying the D600, but I suspect Nikon will not "admit and address the issue" until after the Holiday buying season, if at all.

BTW, I have two D300 since they first came out and have no dust at all.

Who cares? Really. What a frivolous post and insignificant product. Pathetic.

On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (648 comments in total)
In reply to:

shaocaholica: There's a solution many M9 owners have for the lackluster rear LCD. Just lose it altogether. When you shot film, you don't know what the photo looked like till it was developed and that 'charm' is missing when shooting digital so if you're going in for a penny on retro handling you might as well go in for a pound.

No surprises here. DPReview continues its long history of Leica bashing along with posters who have never owned a Leica.

I don't feel obligated (it's a waste of time) to extol the quality of Leica images. FWIW, I know of few if any Leica owners who were disappointed with Leica image quality other than the exception of a few who bought a Panny knock-off and wished they had saved some money bought the Panny version.

Really; some people take intellectual property seriously; like Steve McCurry and Magnum.
