chadnchady: Let's don't fool ourselves here. If you're a fan of cameras and photography, you'll appreciate Leica. You might not agree with (or be able to pay for) the price, but if somebody gave you a Leica to own, you are lying if you tell me you won't want one. If the SL system was some 50% more for the equivilent canikon/sony system, I would easily pull the trigger. But at 3x the price, sorry leica, i'm not rich enough.

Are you kidding? M-lenses large? Compared to what?

Arkienkeli: Quick comparison:

Leica SL with 24-90 (f/2.8-4) and this 90-280 zoom: total price about $18800 and weight 3.84 kg

Fujifilm X-T1 with 16-55mm (f/2.8 all the way) and 50-200mm zooms: $2500 and 1.68 kg.

Short zoom is faster on Fuji, longer slower. Resolutions now 24 and 16 MPix, but 24 MPix X-T2 coming soon. So basically one is paying 7.5 times more to carry 2.3 times more weight for basically same IQ.

>Fujifilm X-T1 with 16-55mm (f/2.8 all the way)

Wrong. Crop-sensor 16-55 f/2,8 becomes equivalent to 24-82 f/4 on FF and thats slower compared to Leica f/2,8-4

It should be mandatory to indicate flash GN for 35 or 50mm (FF equiv.) focal length coverage.

Mike FL: Here we go "200mm that the quoted GN60m@100 ISO", 200mm.

Yes, and GN at 50mm (in FF terms) is ... 1/4 of 60 ???

In reply to:

Everlast66: I think Pentax should complain and get Leica to change the name, the same way 40 years ago Leica complained and made Olympus change their mount to OM-1, they were initially going to call it M-1.

How hypocritical by Leica, with their history of protecting their mount naming, but now using Pentax's Q mount naming.

This is NOT interchangable lens camera and Leica Q is camera not mount name.

DP, why do you write "which covers an effective focal length range of 210-600mm" using "effective" instead of "equivalent"?

"But nothing else offers the same balance of size, autofocus, and interchangeable lenses." - how about Pentax Q7?

Dear DPReview, please add to overview table information about image stabilisation (YES/NO, lens/sensor based). That could be valuable.

It's another way to collect data of trackable and identifiable gear usage. I suppose that information to some organisations or companies have very high value. Even if no data about actual people are reported to anyone, there are very interesting and valuable analytical decisions available.

Thank you all for your appreciation.
Great, I agree, I sometimes have a hard time deciding how much sharpening to apply.

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1508 comments in total)

DPreview, please add Pentax K-5 II (K-5 IIs) - this camera is announced this year, and many pentaxians prefer it (and also the old K-5) over the K-30.
And "s" version is quite unique and deserves to be highlighted among the other APS-C cameras.
