i just bought Leica D-Lux 6 it comes with lightroom 5 download its similar to Panasonic LX7
great pocketable camera with a lot of features and a fast lens
mattmtl: This wouldn't have seemed so silly if the LX7 hadn't come out around 18 months ago and hit a street price around half of this version's MSRP. Seems a bit late in the life cycle for special editions.
That said, a lot of the comments are over the top IMO. It's not a bad camera, just a little long-in-the-tooth. And this is far from Leica spiralling Hassy-style. Leica has been rebadging since at least the 90s (or was it 80s?) and has always kept making "real" Leicas while selling the rebadged models, which presumably are good moneymakers or they wouldn't do it. I'd say a lot of people are a little too fond of a good old fashioned pile-on.
Canon 7D is 4 years old by now and its still top of the line by canon..
this camera makes great photos for its class...check it out
so many negative comments...
this camera is amazing...it makes very good photos..classic design...it comes with lightroom download.. check Pbase or flickr for great photos taken by this camera
these photos are mostly taken by clowns , no talent photographer..oh and i love this one: red dot lover wanna be photographer
Paul_B Midlands UK: Years ago I bought DLux3, I didn't keep it long as it gave a horrid purple hue to images and was as Slippy as a bar of soap. To see pretty much the same look all these years later well it looks really ancient, who would buy it now given great choices like Ricoh GR or whatever. Red Spot no longer enough reason to buy.
if you check or google leica dlux6 or 5 you would be surprized how great the photos are ..looks like a lot of great photographer are using it as a 2nd small camera...
Apple was first with Iphone 5s bending and curving like your body
Biowizard: Beautiful camera - lousy English ...
"and no FEWER than 1000 prototype parts."
regarding "lousy English"
sorry but i habe to say this..you need to write and read german to truely understand and feel the soul of Leica...
ts like reading Shakespeare in chines instead of English
photo nuts: From the preview:
"The point here is that the D610 will offer all that made the D600 excellent, plus a few nice improvements, and hopefully less oil."
Less oil? Shouldn't it be NO oil? ;)
"less oil" is a trademark of Nikon new technology
psn: Just wondering... if the D600 really is spraying oil into the sensor and Nikon refused to fix it, why was there no class-action lawsuit? You could have forced Nikon to fix the problem and teach them a lesson in the process. But no.
So, this makes me think it's not really a problem. At least not enough to p*ss off the majority of the D600 users. For those who are really miffed, get rid of your gear and move on... but I'm going to bet most of you will end up buying another Nikon and probably the D610.
Or maybe the people who complain about this oily mess are not really D600 users? :)
do you really think that there is a class-action for every major problem in the industry...the answer is clearly no..
Mike99999: With the FF NEX around the corner, even if the D600 drops to $1000 I would not touch it.
Buying a FF Nikon or Canon is like buying a giant CRT screen. It's ancient technology. The D600 and 6D are a desperate last fart from Canon and Nikon to push their remaining stock as the world switches to mirrorless.
oh wow what a statement...
abortabort: So where are the articles on what the Surface Pro 2 means to photographers?
not going to buy this microsoft product
Iphone fan here: sad but the Iphone was the smart phone leader..time to switch to samsung
the photos are not that good especially in the low light conditions..screen too small...
Touch ID is not secure..
just curious why are fuji cameras look so similar to Leica?
so you think we might see weddig photographer using the new iphone as their backup or even as their main camera because of the brilliant apple invention?
i am not..but sure there are many might really do it
joe6pack: I don't understand why the press call iPhone5C the affordable iPhone. How is $549 "affordable"? It is more expensive than HTC One and Galaxy S4 (street price).
apple is helping mobile provider to sell more 2 years contract instead of just buying phones
iphone 5C one year old technology for almost 600 Euro
good job Apple for this new AFFORDABLE old phone
whats the point of all these negative and meaningless comments?yes leica is expansiveyes you can get more features for your money with other brands..
no one if forcing you to buy a Leica..no one is forcing you to buy a Porsche or a Jaguar..
Simply if you think its too expansive just buy another camera..
I assure you that Leica will still have a lot of fans arround the world despite all these negative comments.
how about you all go out and take few more shots with your cameras and having some fun
is the price $9.99 available right now for cs3(or newer) owner?
could you please send the link to the price plan
"disappointing first quarter sales. Nikon cites poor market conditions"
i thought they make the best cameras in the world according to Nikos Fans.
its good to hear that Nikon is back to reality.
MaxiMax: Photography is a very profitable business.... for the camera and gear makers.
it is also very rewarding for the people who enjoy photography too
keepreal: Judging from readers of DP Review in particular, quite a number of people replace their expensive equipment merely because there is a new model. Of course, a few do so legitimately because they do need the new features. And sometimes the improvements are not just marketing or splitting hairs.
But I am quite sure that the overwhelming majority never take pictures of sufficient quality or reproduce them in way that justifies the original outlay, let alone for the replacements.
It is all a part of the consumer society, this mad acquisition as a way of life.
If you wonder if I am as guilty as the people I am criticising, you will have some difficulty because, after a mere sixty years as an amateur photographer I have little to show for myself. I throw most of it away. That is because I have no time for the dreadful stuff I see everywhere, including among my own efforts!
However, I have kept a few of my best, some of the most recent being at http://www.ipernity.com/doc/contrajur/album.
i agree with you..butif photography is a hobby for you and you are enjoying the newest and latest..and you can afford it..not sure what is the problem with thats...who said everyone need to produce the best and the highest quality of photos...
