On Is this the new Leica 'Mini M'? article (369 comments in total)

There is the Leica MD (1964 bis 1966) wich has also no rangefinder.

If you don't have a rangefinder use this:

it is a realy great product.

Please! Look at al the Gs between them! After G6 the Gs got worse. Where is the articulating rear screen gone?

P7700 vs G15 is essentially VF vs articulating rear screen.

Oh, and G15 has got a brighter Lens.

cfgphoto: What kind of ugly made-up word is weatherization? Whatever happened to weather-proofing? I know one of the great joys of English is its free and easy approach to adopting and adapting but this may be a step too far. It's right up there with turning burgling into burglarization. Stop it!

That is right. A light breeze or even sunshine might be harmless but when struck by lightning most cameras get damaged.

On Leica teases 'Mini M' for 11th June release article (304 comments in total)

Without that "expensive" rangefinder part you have to order one of these http://www.kinotehnik.com/products/lcdvf/overview with it. (99$) It is great, I ordered one for my VF-less camera. Unfortunalty my display sucks. Resolution is too low. But I can see all the subpixles really sharp.

In reply to:

Mssimo: "depth of field control of an 86mm F3.2 lens for a full-frame system" Why not just say this is a 32mm f1.2. It has the same DOF on a FF or a Crop system. Bokeh and light intensity of a f1.2 is also the same.

So you if like the Bokeh or DOF you get with a 32mm f1.2 lens...it will act the same way on a crop than a FF.
Only thing that changes is the crop/FOV.

Hm, right and not right. What you forgot is that with the smaller format the desired circle of confusion is getting smaller. If you say the acceptable circle of confusion can be 1/1500 of image diameter than you have to chage its size when you change the image diameter. When you crop the image you reduce the diameter of the image.

In reply to:

(unknown member): crop or no crop the aperture stays 1.2 is it not? I see people multiplying aperture by crop, but thats not the case. So it's a 32mm 1.2 lens with a price that suits a 1.2 lens...

That ist right. It stay's really the same. A 32mm f/1.2 stays the same, no matter how you crop the image. The only thing that changes when you crop format is the angle of view. exposure values and depth of field are the same. But if you compare different lenses with the same angle of view on different crops then some things change. on a smaller crop you need for same angle of view a shorter focal length. A f/1.2 stop is always a f/1.2 stop regarding the exposure values. But as it says f/1.2 (focal length divided by 1.2 equals diameter) the diameter of the aperture changes with the focal lenght and therefore you have a different depth of field with different focal lenght, regardless what crop (sensor size) you use. If someone says a 1.2 stop on one format equals 3.5 stop on another format then it means you have different focal length for same angle of view and the stops have the same diameter and therefore you have the same DoF but different exposure values.

90 MB/s data rate. That is impressive. I need a new memory card. Well, and a 5D III

In reply to:

photo perzon: Prices of m4/3 are now twice of DSLRs such as Nikon D3100, 5100 and three times high performance compacts such as the LX7. Then their lenses are also $ 1,000 easy.

No, these cameras are not nearly as good as OM-D is. Try to operate a D3100 or even a D7100 in LiveView! It is arkward.

Anders Ostmoe: I guess this this camera do not support 4/3-lenses any better than the OMD?

The OMD is way faster with 4/3-lenses than the 4/3-cameras are when used in LiveView.

zinedi: I can't understand this: if there is no built-in VF, which disqualify any camera for quantity of possible customers, why they do a tiltable glossy (shiny) LCD? It is unusable for serious focusing even under overcast sky. Why don't they put there a matt screen?

The touch-AF is realy great. I think the best AF ever. But it would be even better if it would be less glossy.

Well the touch-AF in the EM-5 is just great. This will be great in this camera too.

No, you are not the only one. But this camera has almost everything I am missing at my E-P1. The screen and the optional VF. Flash is also nice. I don't have one of my flashes with me all the time. (FL-14, FL-36R)

Now it is the camera I wanted to have when I bought the E-P1 (used). It has a tilting screen, an EVF optional and a build in flash. I tried the E-PL3 but it lack to much features, the E-P1 has. For example the second dial, the orientation sensor, the bigger screen.

In reply to:

gsum: These shots, they are OK but I can't help but think that the real artist is the one that designed the camera. Far more effort, time and thought goes into engineering design than the taking of photos such as these.

Artists are just better at self publicity than great engineers.

from a well know encyclopedia: "Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences"

Just think of art like in artisan!

Nikonworks: Live View image recording time is outrageous, and for this one issue, how in the word does this camera, which I use everyday, merit a Gold Award?

Live View seems to be irrelvant to the testers. That bahavior in Live View makes this camera unusable in this mode.
