On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1511 comments in total)

Frank_BR: Leica may have thought this camera for use by battle reporters in the war on terror. First, the appearance of this camera with the 90-280mm lens is really frightening. This should be enough to paralyze the enemy for many seconds. But, even so the bad guy opens fire, the photographer just keeps the camera at eye level to protect his head. I'm sure the amount of aluminum used in the camera body is enough to stop a bullet from an AK-47.

Lol!

After being impressed by the excellent (if overpriced) Leica Q, they go and release this monstrosity! Why is it so huge? Its FF not medium format. Then there's the odd unbalanced styling, contrast only AF (even if they claim its the fastest) contextual control system, which can be problematic and unintuitive if not implemented well (Leica T!). And this is what it seems to be - a gigantic Leica T! which was probably the company's worst offering in years.

Still I'll wait for final judgement after a full review. I'd heard rumours about this camera and was quite excited after the introduction of the excellent Q - a new R system! Will Leica disappoint again? We'll see...

GabrielZ: A solid phone with solid specs and a seemingly very good camera. I've been quite impressed by MS latest product releases, they're starting to give Apple a run for their money! And I'm an Apple fanboy, but a sane one! I can recognise quality in design by other manufactures and don't automatically put them down like a lot of Apple zealots do.

But as an Apple fanboy, I hope the company gets off its current high-horse, starts recognising that the competitions products are as good or better than theirs. And start innovating again like they used too, instead of this glacial evolutionary path they've been taking.

That said the 6S 3D Touch and Retina flash features are examples of elegant innovation that'll probably be copied. But as a photo enthusiast I'm still reeling in disappointment at the poor low-light performance and lack of fine detail on the 6S camera. Traditionally when Apple released a new iPhone, its camera was always best in class...not anymore!

I didn't know the retina flash concept had already been in use by other companies.

Impressive spec, especially the 950XL.

Wow this camera is pricey! If it wasn't for that, the lack of weather sealing, optical image stabilisation and 4K video (a lot of if's then!) this would be the first Sony camera I'd consider purchasing. Overall I think the Leica Q still tops it, even though that camera has a lower resolution and (for me anyway) too wide-angle a lens. I know it has crop modes, but with those you lose resolution. But if a future Q2 goes to a higher-res sensor than that would make the Q series almost unbeatable in its class!

GabrielZ: Well that's a little disappointing. Usually when a new iPhone is released its camera shoots to the top of its class. Not this time apparently, only 10th place! Even Sony's super dense 21MP camera beats it. I would of thought Apple's lower density/larger photo-site 12MP one would at least beat the Sony on low-light noise levels.

Interesting, I didn't know that.

On article Light L16 packs 16 cameras into a single portable body (393 comments in total)

An interesting if very pricey concept. I'd actually consider getting one if were a lot cheaper. It'd be nicer if it were more compact too, its seems to be about the same width as a relatively large DSLR...but then it is a first generation product. If they survive the next few years (I hope they do) it would be nice to see a more compact and much more affordable version of this unique camera.

I agree with most of DPreview's choices here. I'm glad to see a site like DPreview start to do this sort of thing. Its a rite of passage of sorts, means you've grown up and a lot of people now take what you think in the realm of photographic equipment seriously.

What an elegant simple solution, good on Sony. I have a feeling now Apple/Samsung et al might incorporate a similar solution on their future smartphone models.

Impressive tech and expensive! But you get what you pay for I suppose.

I stand corrected then.
