They are a long way from debugging this camera. Instead of fixing some bugs, they release more "features" in an effort to catch up with competition and improve marketability. Newsflash, they are light years behind competition... Not that they take notice.. If they fix the bugs, reduce by around 50% the ridiculous and unjustified prices of their lenses and 30-40% of the T body they can hope to compete in the mirrorless (DSLM) market. Until that time, they'll be the stuff of ...laughter (sorry, the "45-minute polished stuff of laughter).

RStyga: I can just see clearer now the mirrorless advantage on these lenses...

I believe you are incorrect. Take a look at lenses including the Sigma 60/2.8 Art DN (M4/3, E), Fujifilm 60/2.4 Macro, Voigtlander 75/1.8 and 75/2.5. Do they look similar in volume to the corresponding FE primes to you?

RStyga: Keeping the resolution at 20MP in a newly developed sensor we expect significant DR gain and noise suppression or else...

Of course you need increased DR in weddings! And as for photojournalism you need ruggedness and portability, and there are many cameras on the market that offer weather resistance and compact size without 1.5kg weight and a $6K price!!

Since when a huge and heavy brick is recommended in photojournalism and weddings? Is this a joke?? Do you know what wedding photographers and photojournalists use and would love to use? What an ignorant comment...

It'd better be a *really* good system, Pantax...

At last! A new Leica limited edition!

The only ergonomic issue I can see so far is the way the LCD tilt mechanism has been implemented: it forces you to place the LCD to the side of the body and then rotate it in order to tilt the LCD upwards or downwards. Thus, when you want - for example - to take a waist-level shot the camera becomes twice in length and the balance as well as the steady grip goes out the window. In my opinion, P5 has the right implementation, but, alas, they had to please the selfie bunch...

Steve Huff? Great source... I'll take the truly unbiased verdict of Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake who awarded SL the 2nd worst camera of 2015. Bye, now.

Well done, Olympus! Superb design, great specs, looks like a winner!

I think I'd better bundle your "unbiased" opinions with HAR's and save me some time.

RStyga: A self-serving competition.... pass.

What "is all" is that we have different viewpoints. I'm not interested in writing an essay about the obvious. You see it not, I see it well. As for the alleged objectivity and targeted opinions of HA-RAW, well, I (and many others, as is recorded amply in the forum) beg to differ and thus have mostly stopped wasting time engaging in conversations with that member: once I or another DPR member post something with the slightest negative nuance about Leica, HAR jumps into to defend the brand...

I hate pretentious BS. I inform you that I owned a digital and currently own a 35mm Leica but don't support the company's policy and behaviour in the digital era. So, try and comment in a similar fashion at member's like HowAboutRaw who blindly support Leica even in the most stupefied releases and corporate choices all over DPR...

RStyga: When you spend $3K and, still, you get a mere 15m water proofing you know you got a Leica. They're hopeless...

My opinion, ex-scuba diver, is founded enough if you care to read past your Leica blinkers: 15m water proofing (in effect much less when including movement) is a JOKE, especially when you are asked to spent $3K and carry them under water.
The alternative (DSLM + case) is far cheaper and better for underwater photography.

Raist3d: if fuji makes more small primes i may go back to them

18/2, 27/2.8, 35/2 (and fairly compact are 35/1.4, 60/2.4); how many more do you need??

X-A1/2's target group is girls? Well, if that makes Fujifilm dollar-happy so be it, as long they keep making Bayer-type sensor DSLM cameras!
