PowerG9atBlackForest: Omitting the icon (other companies desperately do want one) is some form of self-destruction, another sign of schizophrenia at Leica?

Once introduced - no matter when - an icon by tradition is meant to be venerable and shall stand for the whole; at least, it shall serve as a signal, as a substitute if you like. The red dot is Leica. Giving it up is giving up the identity.

On LensRentals looks into the Canon EF 16-35 f/4 IS article (61 comments in total)

Roger and his crew at Lens Rentals' do a great job. I wish one day they would enlighten the mystery behind the failure of some of the first M.Zuiko 12-40/2.8s Olympus never has confessed to.

I sincerely wish my wife would say the same about my purchases.

Any activists out there who might think of air pollution?

The battery was all-ready in the charger, courtesy of Leica Services in an attempt to facilitate the work of DPR as much as possible.

One cannot blame DPR for not finding the battery because the charger was not included either.

Quote: "...To attach the Visoflex (Typ 020) EVF you must remove a small cover from the T's hotshoe. We were delighted (but not altogether surprised) to find that even this component is lovingly crafted from brushed aluminum..."

Unfortunately when re-attached, this lovingly crafted cover will cause a beautifull short cut within the electronics. Well - unless the camera is not deposited safely in the display cabinet. Also note the logic: No battery - no short cut!

It was a test to find to what extend DPR would be capable of reviewing things thoroughly.

I am glad and satisfied at the same time that I could feel the need for harmony behind what that man says and does. Thanks!

Opinions and reviews are very much o.k. - I do take notice of them and take them into my considerations before I will make a decision.

But I would not complain about a product which doesn't satisfy my expectations - as long as the company does try to fool me.

Can you imagine how a naked, clinically dead metall piece milled down from a massive block of aluminum will feel in your hands. Warm and cosy? - Cold like ice!
