Mike FL: Just noticed that the Leica T is out of stock along with Nikon V3.
All three already manufactured Leica T's are sold. Leica management brings the deepest apologies to the line of photographers awaiting pre-ordered cameras. Both buyers will be served as soon as possible.
Definitely don't like colors of images produced with Leica T. Lifeless, dull, flat. Plenty of fringing.
1drey: Uh, and after release of new model based on this sensor Sony will produce a couple of lenses... in a year or so. And a couple more - during the next three years.
Want to call me narrow minded? I am not against good ideas and non-orthodox technical solutions.I just shared my observation over existing practice.
Please tell me - how many native high quality lenses for Sony A7(r) are available today, almost 8 moths after release of these fine cameras?

Much more attractive alternative imo: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/giroptic/the-worlds-first-full-hd-360-camera
Thomas Traub: It is typical for Sony that everything they can't do based on the knowledge of photography they do with an higher afford of technique.They built a great cam with great technical data.But in a slippery body.with a technical great viewfinder, but you have to pull it out and pull it back before you can use it - not comfortable and not fast for fast shoots.Also the flash: you have to put the cam from your eye and pull up the flash.
Sonys approach to photography is from the technical side, they have great technique and put as much as possible in the unit.
The approach of Nikon/Canon & Co is from the side of the photography, they first think on the photographer and than they develop a technique ....
That's the difference.
Beside my Nikon DSLR-Eyuipment I love to use my Fuji X10 because of the manuel zoom - that's also a realy fast lense that is fast to use and in the same way I use my DSLR - great from the point of view of a photographer (also it has not the same IQ than the Sony).
Totally agree. Nice spec, but not inspiring. I am also infected by Fujifilm X10 - especially love it's manual zoom. I decided to pass on X20, but rumored X30 with 1" sensor can be my next compact.
I already own X-E1 and X100s, but it is hard to stop buying X gear :)

1drey: DPR, don't you want to bring on the front page a photograph of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, a member of Pussy Riot group - she is missing somewhere in the guts of re-born Gulag, hiding from the relatives, her advocates and public. Against all laws - even damned Putin's laws!
Did DPR got money from Putin's PR agency?
Potzreoty goes nahui
Artpt: @ 1drey, I read your link and saw the Pussy Riot documentary....she is committed and they cannot kill her for fear of martyrdom...keep the posts coming with updates...there are many causes and few interested.
@Artpt - glad to hear a voice of human. Unfortunately they can do with this woman whatever they want. As they do it now with other people. Tortures and humiliation - usual practice of Russian police and penitentiary system. Should I remind about absurd accusation of Arctic 30 crew in piracy? They are arrested over a month already - all crew, including doctor and cook. They arrested photographer who was not neither crew or Greenpeace group member.
Marcin 3M: Hopefully somewhere in space there's an Zippo lighter...
LOLThere should be a security agent with Zippo for sure (they are omnipresent) - http://youtu.be/nzwid7jeqiE
peterwr: And this is on a photography news site because...?
Because Ketchum got some money stolen from Russian people to get it on the front page of DPR.
DPR, don't you want to bring on the front page a photograph of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, a member of Pussy Riot group - she is missing somewhere in the guts of re-born Gulag, hiding from the relatives, her advocates and public. Against all laws - even damned Putin's laws!
Maciek_Leopolis: @Higuel/ "Absolutely no point in taking it unlit!"Except for 'enlighting' that whole Putin's propaganda... :(
Unlit "olimpic flame" sent into space for h(uge) load of money - isn't it a beautiful image of that post-Soviet phenomenon?
1 kilogram delivered to the ISS costs $20000.
Not impressed.Or, being precise - impressed, but in negative way.
What a terrible set of sample images.
Do they plan to produce Canon EF to Fuji X-mount? I would love to use my Canon EF 8-15 fisheye on (planned) Fuji X-E1
bollzy: Of course, I've just bought an X10, and the only thing I want now is this X20. Crap.
'Orbs' problem is fixed long ago.
