montoniphotography: what Zack make is documentary and cityscape, but not street photography.
If you mean with street the "I have big balls and hold someone my camera in his face eric kim style", then you are right. that stuff is much better.but I would like to know your difference between documentary in the streets and street photography too
one good so,ution to start with, is to. uy a profile for yoir camera! cost you about 10 bucks and the results are great
tecnoworld: Very nice bokeh and nice IQ. But I still prefer my 85mm f1.4 as a focal lenght on APS-C. Of course this 56mm is smaller, which is nice on mirrorless cams.
in fact, the 56 mm lense is not smaller or significant smaller than the 85 f1.8 what would give a similar picture. it might be a nice lense, but with all these super fast lenses, we are facing very heavy and pricy lenses. finally we end ob with the same size like a dslr in worst case, but for a much higher price
Retzius: The sensor in the Leica T is the same sensor that was in the Leica X-Vario which is the same sensor that was in the Leica X2
now THATS innovation... er, I mean, the "essence of photography"
revenant, you are explaining every new camera. for that you don't have to buy that one
Graham Gibson: So many haters here who bash this thing purely on cost. I wonder how many of them paid a premium for an Apple computer or iPhone over some cheaper alternative? I don't see much difference. Surely there's some level of enjoyment to be had from the design and ergonomics.
compare the apple user with the m240 users, that would be right. but that thing is a joke
ambercool: I might have to get this new iCamera!
howaboutraw, of course it has a touch screen!
jnd: Only USB 2.0, 1/4000, 1/180 flash sync, 30fps video, too large, small grip, not full frame, only 16Mpix, and of course, too expensive!
What did I miss, guys? :)
who cares about USB, I have never used the USB connection. just buy a card reader, done!
Sergey Borachev: Canon, put a Sony sensor in next time, or a sensor that is competitive, then I'll be more interested. A larger than M43 sensor sounds nice, and so does the lens spec, on paper, but is the IQ actually better? We will have to find out about its IQ later, and also whether its IQ is actually noticeably better than a similarly priced E-M10 kit, to give up features in the E-M10 like the nice EVF, lens interchangeability, and more.
marclee, is it possible that you have no clue, what you are talking about?
HeyItsJoel: Question about Fuji lenses:
1. Is the Fuji 56mm f/1.2 a REAL "f/1.2" in comparison to their FF lens counterpart (i.e.: Canon 50mm f1.2)? I mean, does it give the same effects a typical f/1.2 lens would give like a dreamy bokeh, shallow DOF, etc...
2. Is the 23mm f/1.4 a REAL "f/1.4"?
I'm inquiring because Fuji is asking a premium price for those lenses and I'll glad pay it, if the playing fields are equal.
of course is the lense a f1.2 or f1.4 whatever lense you are talking about. and in most cases the bokeh is quite good. regarding the dof, learn the differences in sensor size and you can answer your question on yoir own. f stop is alsway fstop but will not give you thes ame dof on different sensor sizes!
I follow her for years on tumblr and I really love her work
Terry Breedlove: Fuji nor Sony have anything even close to this.
that is the reason why I bought a sony and would buy a fuji but would neber buy this nikon. because nikon has nothing like fuji and sony!
RichRMA: Isn't time for USB-3 to make it at least to the pro camera ranks?
who cares about usb? I use dlsr since 2001 and I always used a card reader. so I don't care about any usb protocol in a camera.
I have a problem with that application, the results are looking very crappy
Nukunukoo: Df does show marginally better noise performance at the upper ISOs, especially when compared to the D610. No real advantage though, except for legacy lens and those who love lotsa knobs.
did you scale down the otheresults to 16 mpix?
the-dude-75: here are so many people writing without having a clue1. sony has not 4 to 4 mounts, they have two, one for the dslr line, the old minolta one and one for the mirrorless, the e-mount. and guess what. all other habe the same amount of mounts, canon has even more, one for full frame, one for crop and one for mirrorless. 2. sony is not stopping the nex line, there will,be new nex coming next year, in aps-c size3. yes you can use leica lenses and all othere lenses. no other FF can do this4. there is a roadmap for lenses untill 2015
@technics: facts are facts, canon has EF, EF-S and EF-M, that makes three. nikon is for the DSLR line more cleverer than canon, there you can use the DX lenses on the FX camera without destroing the mirror and in DX mode.on the mirrorless cameras both canon and nikon has another mount and you can use dslr lenses with adapter. same as sony. so nothing to complain about!
njkdo: I am not against innovation, and this digital viewfinder is really great and impressive, but why don't give an option with optical viewfinder too? For this I will not buy this camera, I really need to see through true glass.I had in past with my first digital camera a Sony R1, wonderful camera, but...
jey, just buy a nikon DF or any other dslr!

tim fisher46: Leica M lenses on the A7R?Is that possible?Does anyone have a link or similar to which adapters might be possible?
Owning 4x new Leica lenses, this sounds like a really good option for a forthcoming project of mine where size of equipment is going to be important, & assuming the adapters are not as impractical and bulky as the above picture, this camera may be a Heaven sent.
the whole world is talking about the possibility to use the m mount lenses, and you habe never heard about that?
HubertChen: Sony forgot photographer have noses.
This camera has an EVF. Why is it placed in the middle of the camera, where I need to twist my neck and squeeze my nose against the display? Not convenient and will always leave smear on the LCD. If you have a Mirror Box, your OVF has to be here. An EVF is connected with flex PCB. You can place the EVF where you want to. And I want the EVF in a conveient position. Not in an inconvenient one.
Look at cameras from Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander and Fuji and the viewfinder is in the corner. Very convenient to hold to the eye. No Neck twisting. No nose squeezing. No Display cleaning.
I presume the design is made by the same team that created the NEX menu system? It is a shame to have so great technical prowess and then not utilize the best possible design.
These kind of usability flaw more influence buying decision for pro photographer then IQ. All cameras today have great IQ. But do they lend themselves to great shooting flow?
I don't know if you realise this, but photographer had already noses in the past.And some people use right, some use the left eye. THere are also "issues" with Leicas.
mediman30: It would have been nice if DPR can post some pictures of this new A7 with another full frame DSLR to compare the size difference. Thanks in advance! Oooopsss...I just found it! Thanks DPR!
the A7 is not really bigger than the M9 and how can the sensor be smaller?
