Sorry to say, but it is a very useless interview. As good as there wasn't any interview at all.

Why don't they try to come up with a product that is not a rip off of something we already know?

In it is not to compete with D810, it is to compete with MF for a much cheaper price. I think they are targeting MF segment with this camera, no 5D MKIII od Nikon D810 users. Pretty sure.

lcf80: Not sure if it's right direction. I would rather want 24MP and D750-like dynamic range. But it should be pretty nice for people who do billboard-like prints.

Vignes, it is not about the # of MP. 50 MP and a better than D810 DR - I take it. But the DR is the same as 5D MKIII. So what is the value of those 50 MP for those that do not print billboards?

Was super excited to read rumors and I was hoping it will be THE LANDSCAPE camera - I would get it in a heartbeat.

It looks like a MF competition, something that will help folks that print billboards.

I own a 5D MKIII and this new camera will have the same exactly AF and no improvement on the DR.

I am skipping it...I was really hoping it will be better than D810 in every area...

The camera is cool, I am very interested, but the studio work is so shallow...I am so glad I do not have to do it for a living.

Marty4650: I never did understand why Sony had IBIS on their DSLRs and DSLTs but not on their NEX and Alpha E cameras. So now a great camera just got better.

A very smart move by Sony.

If Sony is lucky, then Nikon and Canon aren't paying attention again.

There many good things coming from Sony and I am super happy that they show what can and should be done with sensors. Still, I do not see real professionals switch the system from Canon and Nikon - this system is not complete. Maybe 5 years from now, but who knows if Sony will be in business by then. What I do not understand is why Canon or even Leica cannot buy sensors from Sony?

Light Pilgrim: In my opinion, the problem of Sony is the lack of lenses. Personally I find nothing to be excited about so many new camera bodies from Sony is there is no portrait lens to compete with 35 mm, 50mm or 85 mm in the F/1.2-F/1.4 range.

Professionals will have the same issues with A9.

What Sony will do good is landscape photography, but not portraits.

I can't believe people are happy to carry a very ugly combo - Sony camera, Canon FF lenses via adapter and no AF. Great that folks do not need AF, I still find it useful on 5D MKIII

abortabort, why I need a Sony camera for my Canon lenses? I have Canon camera for this:-)

I wouldn't call it "humble" to think you can actually "travel to the heart of any culture" just because you are on a bike. I'd call that naive and rather arrogant.
The photos, I'm sorry to say, are also nothing really special.

JanePete...I do not know anything about you, but I know of Nicolas . He has his own style which is highly regarded among photographers: http://1x.com/member/nico3d/photos/latest

BarnET, 5D MKIII was released 2-3 years ago....something like that:-)

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2249 comments in total)
In reply to:

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 do not think you are 100% right. Leica is expensive, but many people can buy it...and yet they do not. I was attracted by M Monochrom, but the technology is so behind my 5D MKIII. I cannot spend 7500 USD vs 3200 USD that I spent on 5D MKIII and know that I have moved a couple of steps back. Their sensors are not on the same level as modern Canon or Nikon sensors. What I like about Leica is the size and quality of their lenses. If it was one step ahead of Canon or Nikon with sensors, Dynamic Range, ISO....I would get one. But Leica is behind where it matters the most for me.

Unlike with sigma 35 mm, weather sealing is critical....unless this lens is not intended to be used for landscapes.

In reply to:

Suave: Hard to get excited about the Canon version when new 24-105L can be had for $640. Hopefully it makes more sense for other mounts, but, a Canon user, this is not the lens I was waiting for.

Go to any online store and find canon for less than 1000, please share the link.

Direct link | Posted on Oct 25, 2013 at 12:50 UTC

I have to say sigma rocks...their new products are very exciting. Now I hope they will do 14-24 that will be as good as nikon:-)
