Kodachrome200: the intresting part of this would be info on how this works with photographers. how much do they get paid ect ect
I guess in ur point of view xmichaelx it is too hard for someone who works as a professional reporter to make an article that is complete!
huyzer: Awesome technology!
It IS TRUE Huyzer!!! You can easily find it even in dpreview news about new lenses!!! Na exemple: Tokina&Pentax unique 10-17!!! :)
nickwit: Can somebody please tell me how the extra sensor size affects aperture, i.e. what the equivalent f stop is on a ff.Thank you
PLEASE share it with us!!! :D
PLEASE PLEASE! PREATTYPLEASE Dpreview: we are still waiting for a review!!! ;D
straylightrun: Even regardless of IQ, that $300 10-18 is going to sell like hotcakes.
My 18-135 fails focus sometimes at the long end!!! :/In static objects!!! :/
beavertown: Canon still cares about budget users in 2014, not like Nikon...
Agree 100% NetMage! UNFORTUNATELY for anyone who bought canon like me! :/
At the end there is no excuse for any "sales representative or whatever workers" in such a - REALLY!- prestigious brand to say ANYTHING that will leave the clients unhappy! If People pay such money for LEICA QUALITY PRODUCTS i suppose is ALSO because they want something they CAN TRUST! Unfortunately, it is looking that Leica(like most others) choose the cheesy way! :(And that is unfortunate for the world of Photography itself: Leica was after all the quality benchmark that you COULD in the past look up to! :/
Michael Piziak: So a firmware update upon release of the camera? Doesn't sound too assuring.
@Jakeb: Yes! A RED ONE!!! :D
Rooru S: "you will get the complete scope of functions and performance as described in the manual of your camera".
So version 1.0 didn't had all the functions stated on the printed manual? Interesting...first the claim that their lenses didn't need optical corrections (when they were Software corrected) and now unfinished in-camera firmware?
HowaboutRAW: I do appreciate that you kept the level truly civilised! Well done! :)However, even if you almost made me change my mind(!) at the end there is no excuse for any of the workers in such a - REALLY!- prestigious brand to say ANYTHING that will leave the clients unhappy! If People pay such money for LEICA QUALITY PRODUCTS i suppose is ALSO because they want something they CAN TRUST! Unfortunately, it is looking that Leica(like most others) choose the cheesy way! :(And that is unfortunate for the world of Photography itself: Leica was after all the quality benchmark that you COULD in the past look up to! :/
Why would dpreview excuse a camera maker-and ANY ONE for that matter!- to release something NOT PROPERLY FINISHED?!?Yes! It does NOT sound very reassuring!!!EVEN MORE IF YOU ARE PAYING FOR LEICA FAME AND USUAL PRICES!!! -_-
«Responding to popular demand»?!? For once I would like these PR have to give prove of their amazing statements!!!
The other brands like canon and pentax and EVEN TOKINA ALREADY have it in their lenses for MANY years!!! Pity that dpreview NEVER showed them also!!!
stanmkl: Message from Olympus Japan:
Thank you for your e-mail regarding our product.
We apologize for any inconvenience for the blurred/shaken images at certain shutter speeds.
As you know "anti-shock 0sec" for E-M1 has been updated and we believe that this update can help to resolve the shutter shock issue you mentioned.
At this point, there are no firmware updates for E-P5 to resolve the shutter shock issue.
However, we are planning to update the firmware for E-P5 similar to "anti-shock 0sec" as well. Please wait for the update to be released for a while.
We are sorry but we are not able to tell you when the update will be released at this point. Please check Olympus homepage from time to time for the latest information of firmware.
We appreciated your kind cooperation and understanding, looking forward to see your satisfaction on our service and product.

It is sooooo much similar to how canikon deals with costumers! :/
(PS:haters, I DO have and canon!)
Canon cares for what?!? WHAT A JOKE! I have canon and i WISH it would do some cheap AND GOOD like nikons 50mm f1.8 AND 30mm f1.8!!!
SURE, you are counting in a future 50mm IS that will sell for 700€! Yep! That is budget no doubt!!! -_-GIVE ME A BREAK!!!And YES! I do have canon!!!
just wuauuu!!! XD
Thanks dpreview for a nice work showing it!!! :D
cmantx: Congratulations. Well deserved.It is one of the few times I have voted a 5. I would like to know how it worked out.
Obviously it is not the same!
First Sonyblad and now feica! What a shame that markting and other professionals have dominated the photo industry instead of thos ewho indeed like to and do make Photography!!!
Roger Knight: I think that I am correct in my understanding of your findings that; Leica are "lying" about the quality and efficacy of their "T" series lenses.
I think that I will stick with Fuji who had some minor problems early into the "X" series roll out but who were quick to admit their minor mistakes when they became apparent and were keen to fix them whatever the cost, until they are able to produce "best in class" products as they are. Furthermore Fuji have proven that they are prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to correct and remedy any problems in their customers cameras as DPR have attested. I don't think any of their customers could now complain about the products that they bought in the past.We are not now seeing these admittedly minor problems crop up anymore.When it comes to the question of industrial fidelity, I prefer the Fuji "active" approach to the arrogance of the Leica approach. It is all about Trust and truth.
jnd, PLEASE start to learn how to read properly texts!!! Or make it shorter for yourself and just read what Rooru wrote above in case you cannot grasp reality by yourself!Have a good day and don't mind ANYONE if you want to pay 2000 for a underdeveloped, dark normal zoom lens!
Frank_BR: I do not know why DPR gives so much importance to the method of distortion correction. The modern trend is that the bulk of the distortion be partially corrected optically, and the remainder by software. That Leica is a mystifying photography company, we all know long ago.
Yep Olymore, the problema is that Some people don´t want to see the truth: Leica lied! is THAT SIMPLE!!!But since the begining of times people only believe what they want!!!
David H Dennis: I was at the Leica Store in West Palm Beach, and they had the T.
First, this is a real thing of beauty. It's gorgeous. If you appreciate pretty things, you will want one.
In an age when designer clothes can cost thousands of dollars, I'm not sure why people are so resentful about Leica's high prices. It's just like a designer handbag, but you use it every day. Why not pay a few extra bucks to have a more beautiful and sensuous experience in your photography?
I think a lot of people would love to own this, but can't afford it. That's just the nature of Leica's niche.
I will say that there is substance behind the pretty face. This is the best assembled camera I have ever seen, and I thought the software was beautifully crafted and very well thought out.
Then the Leica guy all but grabbed the camera away from me before I got to really know it. Sad, and poor salesmanship ... but if I was just a little closer to Leica's target demographic, I would have bought one on the spot.
I agree with you Olymore! HOWEVER, if you pay the TOP PRICE you should get the TOP QUALITY!!! WE EXPECT THAT!And the problema is that since a few years (f)eica is making people pay for Panasonic cameras like if they were Leica!!! Its just the same stupidity and vanity as the famous Sonyblad lunar!!!Using your car exemple, it would be just like we buy a RollsRoyce only to find out there was a Toyota engine inside, and the new seats were made in cheap fake leather in china!!! :/
