All digital Leica products need FW updates. Desperately.

kaiser soze: Dpreview: You're really getting on my nerves. What is the point of mentioning the "equivalent" f-number (f11). Have you all lost your senses? All this is going to do is cause confusion. All this is, in total, is a way of saying that the total amount of light captured is the same as it would be with a 35mm camera and a lens at f11. Why do you think that it is meaningful to point this out? I think it is bizarre.It has NOTHING to do with ANYTHING that matters. Nothing at all. The camera exposure value is the same as it would be 35mm camera and a lens at f4, correct? So it has no relevance to exposure settings, and the angle of view, expressed comparatively, is determined by the relative difference in sensor size, i.e., the "crop factor". So what is the point? I find it downright BIZARRE. You have simply come up with something that you think makes you look smart. It doesn't make me think you are smart. It makes me think you are a bunch of WEIRDOS.

I'm sure, a lot of information (incl. DoF FF equivalence) can be confusing to some readers, but it's up to them to study photography a but more and lift their confusion. DPR is not an online photography school.

In reply to:

RStyga: The 50/1.8 looks large, not to mention the tele zoom; not sure that the mirrorless design helped here.

Sure, they need to design a mirrorless FF lens, then.

DoF is an important aspect so stop your obsessive winging...

No, that's not what it means. The lens still collects F4 'amount' of light, not F11. The FF DoF equiv. is F11 due to the smaller sensor.

On article Leica Q In-depth Review (1119 comments in total)

A quick glance at the comparative to RX1R II specs invites at least a modest amount of reservation to kick in: Q has nearly half the resolution and sensitivity, a fixed LCD, no flash, 130g more weight, significantly larger volume, and it's $1500 more expensive (street price); not to mention the 'legendary' less know-how (see Conclusion "Cons")..

On second thought, I'll buy it if it passes a minimum quality bar: at least 30' of hand-polishing.

I think Leica rushed this announcement by a week; it's not April's Fool day yet...

maxnimo: Now the real question is - will this lens be able to take a better image of a distant bear than let's say a Canon or a Sony or a Fujinon lens?

The Leica lens is not constant F2.8. I'm pretty sure that the Sigma 100-300 F4, a true gem, is only a fraction of Leica's price.

Not necessarily, no. Perhaps a bit but in no way worth the price and size/weight trade off.

Jeff Seltzer: I actually own the camera. As a professional photographer, I can say it's my most favorite camera ever owned. The OVF is not a gimmick, and I like to use it in conjunction with the EVF. The camera's handling is great, and images are fantastic. It's more fun and engaging to use than my old Canon DSLRs. It might not win on every objective spec, but the whole is more than the sum of the parts. It's a great camera. Is it "worth" the price? Value is subjective. I think it's worth it.

@darngooddesign - is this certain? I've read a lot of disputes about it, i.e., whether X-Pro2 is free of that problem...

Have you noticed any 'waxy skin' image output on JPG files?
