Kodachrome200: the intresting part of this would be info on how this works with photographers. how much do they get paid ect ect

Indeed!!! Unfortunately it looks more and more like dpreview doesn't really care anymore about the level of service they provide anymore (as opposed to the past!) :(

Joris1632: Which is more expensive; a €1000 kit worth €200 in 2 years time or a €2000 kit worth €1750 or more in 2 years time? Ferrari owners don't get rich by being financially incompetent! :-)

if they were not made by... fuji!

In reply to:

dspoel: People here always complain about Leica prices. But at least these cameras are not made in sweatshops under slave-like circumstances.

@ dspoel: if you believe that buy SIGMA lenses!!!

quezra: Sony should sue... tri-navi straight out of NEX-7 and grip from NEX-3... all they did was make it out of pretentious materials as if that justified doubling the price it really was worth.

AND Nikon!
Nikon also anounced the return to true photography. With their DF! So ONLY with it we can go back to doing real photography!!!

In reply to:

Marty4650: The styling really looks like a dressed up version of a Sony Nex C3, or a Samsung Galaxy camera. Except the Samsung actually looks better. The omission of a built in EVF is deplorable at this price.And while "sleek" might be stylish, it just isn't a good design for a small camera that is easy to drop.

Leica would have been better off by rebranding the Panasonic GM1, slapping a red dot on it, and selling it for $1300, lens included. That method worked for them so many times before. Instead they ended up with another camera that might sell 300 copies in the next 12 months.

A $699 Olympus EM10 will beat the pants off it, as will any Fuji X camera made.

This camera will only appeal to Leicaphiles and people with too much disposable income.

Very rigth Marty!!!
Except that leica proved ( also hasselblad and even canikon with their +&+ EXPENSIVE lenses) that there are always way too many people with more money then brains!!! Unfortunately for all us others that in such a way can only buy such lenses in 2nd hand(or more!).

In reply to:

Daedbird: The touchscreen and controls look awesome, and the design of the whole camera is beautiful.

If it had a mic jack, I would seriously think about saving up for one. But it doesn't, and if that is the price tag for the zoom, I shudder to think what other faster lenses may cost.

I guess I am not a Leica guy, but she sure is a beaut.....

Yes! Indeed the biggest problem is in the price of the lenses!!! Migth as well go for M in second hand!!!

In reply to:

Henrik Herranen: Please, DPReview:

Of all web sites YOU should remember that a list that is called "Key Photographic/Video Specifications" but without sensor size is missing, well, for the lack of a better term, one of the MOST key specifications. (This goes just as well for mobile phones, P&S and mirrorless cameras, as DSLRs.)

To continue, the focal length (both real as well as equivalent) for a fixed lens would IMHO also fall under the umbrella of key specifications.

Then again, I've yet to see someone choose an optical system because of the number of lens elements. I don't think that is key to anything.

EVEN if they didn´t mention it directly, does ppl in dpreview want to be real reporters or not???
:(

In reply to:

Snowbird_UT: When are they gonna drop the mirror. Of all the systems that could benefit of going mirrorless I would think this one wins hands down. They could make adapters for all those legacy lenses easily enough.

Rangfinder has some qualities, VERACITY is NOT one of them!!!

In reply to:

gsum: This camera isn't medium format - it is MFDX. To describe it as MF is misleading. Looks good though and is almost free of the usual useless 'features' that afflict modern cameras.

Yes, it is a shame the sensor is smaller then real 645, but so is 90% of all medium format sensors!!!

It's not rare and it's not meteorological. Couldn't be bothered reading the rest of the article after that.

Yep, the article if negatively filled with many jewels of ignorance, astronomical, optical, AND PHOTOGRAPHIC ONES!!!
still it was nice to know about the dates!

In reply to:

Retzius: A gasp at Nikon's headquarters is so loud it is heard all across Japan.

Suddenly, the DX lens team refocuses its effort to come out with a 16-350 F5.6-f8 to replace the newer and just announced 18-300 before it even launches.

Meanwhile, in the Nikon boardroom, they decide it will have a MSRP of $1250 while at the same time scheduling a discussion of why Tamron and Sigma super zooms outsell their own.

Could not agree more wiht you Josh152!!! :D
I only hope Tamron And Sigma will never follow canikon crazystupid price strategy!!! Otherwise we would stop having competition again! :/

In reply to:

Scottelly: I wonder if this lens will work on a Nikon 1 V2 with Nikon's FT1 mount adapter. THAT would be cool. Add the Nikon 6.7-13mm VR lens, and you'd have a great two-lens kit. The 1" 2.7x crop would make this lens equivalent to a 43.2-810mm f3.5-5.6, and the photos might be pretty sharp, since it would only be the central area of the frame that would be captured.

@Henrik: f5.6 IS INDEED f5.6!!!
check ur facts before writing! -_-
