arhmatic: I like your subtitle "retro slick"

I am still amazed how many people deny the importance of good design "because we are pros and because we need good ergonomics" or "this is a tool, not a fashion statement".

Industrial design does matter.
Well done Fuji, well done Leica.

I have owned the X-Pro 1, I have the XT-! and following Fuji lens,
14mm, 23mm, 56mm. The two items I have sold is the X-Pro 1 and the 60mm. Sorry you are wrong. Go count some Megie Pixels.

The Leica cameras may look better, the lens, the difference is much less. With this new sensor, the real category that Fuji has with Leica is Lens quality. Here, Fuji takes no back seat.
Fuji help bring the mirrorless cameras to the for front.The Fuji will be the best mirrorless. I feel as if the true nature of mirrorless and it biggest advantage is size. The APS-C may well be the best use of mirrorless as a format.

Yes, but if money is short super 8. Super 8, 16mm, Super 16, 35mm or Panavision. It is matter of money.

Leica look like a bargain now. Still the Sony crowed will still say the A7r11 will take better pictures, even if Sony does make the sensor. Best be making a living with this baby, a working person's camera. Schneider Kreuznach 80mm LS lens. I really want to laugh when all the experts out there, ask who is Schneider Kreuznach...do they make good lens? They can not make as good a lens as CZ. The people in the know. Know they are some of finest lens you can buy, Xenar, Super Angular and even Compenon ( spell does not count ). I would just like to hold one and take a few shots with it. Echoes of past, when fine cameras were like fine watches.

Good stuff. It does not need to be 100MP and every thing pops out at you, like the land scape of OZ.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2124 comments in total)

The sensor is excellent. The camera not very good. If you go to operate a Nikon or Canon, the controls and information is up front. Sony needs to stop coming out with the same old body each time. They need to create a camera to par with the sensor. They have an excellent point and shoot. The RX100 IV, it operates nearly the same as the A7 series. I do not want a great point and shoot.....I want a camera. Bottom line excellent images, poor camera.

km25: This looks like a great sensor for Fuji. For APS-C this an excellent sensor. The NX cameras seem very nice, but this sensor would be killer in a Fuji XT-2 or Pro 2. Even without Trans -X.
Fuji make a deal with Samsung!

That I can not tell you.That part of photography still belongs to the DSLRs.

You can keep the video, I personally do not need it. You can put two batteries into the XT-1. I would rather over pay bit for camera with the controls al a Fuji or any close to. All most forgot the the real good EVF.

On article 2015 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (222 comments in total)

A bunch of interesting responses, The biggest question is, is one lens enough. I would more then likely get the Leica. EVF and camera layout VS 40MP and 4K movies. Cost, it is a Leica! It should be an honor to pay more, not really.

Leica begets Leica. The camera needs some improvements, in JPEG and noise/dynamic control. From would go a long way on that. Yes the camera is $7500.00, the Zoom lens, never was Leica strong point is an OK Zoom lens, the primes will be a lot better. Oh and if you have Leica glass already, you can use it. Leica mostly makes cameras for photographers with a deep wallet and for artist who like the way they make cameras. You can buy a D810 or a Sony A7R11. The former is a great camera, the latter a fine image maker. But a lot of people may suffer with Leica sensor short comings, because of glass. Just handle a Leica lens and you see why they are the bench mark.

km25: This is Leica's first camera of this type. The zoom is not going to as sharp as the primes and remember if you are a Leica owner, say M, your lens will be less then $400.00, just use your M lens. In real world use all of these camera are in the same ballpark. Give Leica chance for firmware up grades, the RAWS of all are very close.I remember the Fuji cameras when they first came out, all the up grades to get them to where they are today. Why I put up with all the hardships was that the Fuji was made so well and gave me the operation lay out I like. Firmware up grades saved the day. They Nikon D750 is fine camera, it is a DSLR. The only good point about the Sonys are their sensors. The cameras are second rate. Shutter bounce, overheating and poor PASM, Playstation operation design. Only the sensor saves the camera. Leica may do well. Bet ya it is made in Germany.

The A7 series camera would do well to have a shutter speed dial. Or a small window to show the user what the status of the camera setting are. If you do understand why this is important to me and others, it was more then likely your first camera was an IPhone. My first pro camera was a CZ Ikon 6x6 folding camera. Sony needs photographers to design their cameras, not the TV people.Sensors are super great, the A7 series takes great images, but........

Sony fine marker of sensors. But not cameras. Electronic first curtain used to solve the shutter bounce, why not just make a good shutter. But when you look at a camera like Fuji, before you use it you have idea what it is going to do. Even Nikon and Canon DSLRs have little LCD windows to give you the basics. The Sony point and shoot, DX100 IV ( I hope that is right ) Handles very much the same as the A7R11. I do not like p&s cameras

You are how old? Cameras back when for me had shutter and F stop dials. Sensors were a few bucks. PASM to stands for nothing. I want to know what the camera is set for. What F stop, want shutter speed and the ASA. I may not want the camera feels like giving me. And I what to look down at the camera, preset and know what I want. DOF or high shutter speed. I want to take the picture, not the camera as in point and shoot.

The Leica has to par rates with the other 24MP sensors. A FF with less MPs would have better high ISO noise. The JPEGs on Leica are not good. The other companies seem to do much better. The 116 seems sharper then the 106 by a little, maybe lens. The Nikon does the best in JPEG land. But JPEG is a software/firmware repairable problem. As far as cost Leica is Leica. The color from the Leica is very good in RAW, needs work in JPEG. It's biggest advantage is that it uses a good camera useably. That it already can handle carload of lens. But a Nikon D750 with the upper level of lens for it is a much better buy.

Ok, look at my comments about the Sony A7R11, see that little LCD screen on top. Well Sony this how a camera without dial, as in shutter speed. It has a huge battery. It is a on the large size. It will take great photos. Oh by the way it costs a lot . It has to, it is a Leica.This system will be their further, the mount will not change, but cameras will. It is for them Leica folks.
