On A lot to like: Real-world Leica Q gallery posted article (274 comments in total)
In reply to:

km25: Sorry if I step on toes. The images would more vivid and lively, if the subjects were. The problem with "real world" images are, they need be well, less real and more special. I am sure the old Sony RX1R is a good camera with a fine lens. The Leica should also be the same, come on how bad do you think Leica lens are and the people at leica know what sharp is. The bad part of the Q is price, but Leica has never known for bargain prices. The Leica Q is a better operating camera then Sony. It has a EVF, as part of the camera that is Hi Rez. The Leaf sutter also lends it's self to this kind of camera, not for race car photography, unless they a standing still. I think the Q is a better camera then these images show. It is amore advanced camera then The Sony Rx1r.

The Rx1 is not cheap, it does a fine CZ lens. But the EVF is an add on of lower quality then the Leica. I use Fuji and my M7. The Leica is going in the right direction for them, I do not need a lot of lens nor a big oufit. I am waiting to see what each company does. I am very happy with 16MP of Fuji in APS-C. Film is just too much work for me at my age. I will wait and see what unfolds in the few months.

On Fujifilm X-T10 Review preview (448 comments in total)

What Fuji needs, a new sensor. Maybe 1/8000. It sure does not need glass, it's lens are from very good ( only a few) to excellent (most). Fuji should get a good sensor, like Samsung.

I am so glad that Fuji has made another super fine lens. I both happy and sad. I am sad because I cannot find a reason to buy the lens, which brings me to happy part I have a Leica 90mm APO Summcron F/2.0 Is it better then this lens, maybe, not by much. I paid just under $3k years ago, the are now closer to $4k.So when all of moan about how costly Fuji glass is just compare prices to other high Q glass.

In reply to:

km25: A cancelling filer to conteract the AA. Nikon used that a while ago, then just did put the AA on the sensor. Canon money saving short cuts are one thing, but on a super highend camera like this one, spend a few bucks and just take out the AA on the given model.

The thickness of the sensor stack. How thick, well, no.....No AA filter is better then canceling. Extra stuff in front of the sensor can never be good.The newest Nikon, D810 is made that way, which is an improvement over using a canceling filter, it was lower cost. Cancelling ok, no filter better.

Correct. It is a matter of costs. Just make all the cameras with and put the cancelling filter on the ones without. But nothing in the path is the best.

On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1085 comments in total)

km25: Or even a small LCD to tell you what is happen. Lens, camera balance. I am not a hater, just that it would be so nice to have a camera, not some electric image ray gun. Shooting is part of the creative process....the changes would be so easy. Give in to the light side Sony!

Let me guess, the LCD on the back and and the EVF. Well so Nikon and Canon will soon be ending the useless B&W on the top of the camera. They will learn from a camera maker with so may years behind them. Sony is an image chip maker...in 1960, no one owned a Sony camera. There were none. They had Leica M3/M4, Canon F1s and the Nikon F. The image look great from a Sony imaging thing, but the are very poor as cameras go. You will never get it. You well have to use a real camera. iPhones are fine phones, but to me not real cameras, for example. Again stop taking my take on Sony personally. It is a poor over all designed camera. With some minor improvements it would a fine camera....with a fine, world class Sony chip. For now it is just PASM with thumb wheels.

Like the screen on a Nikon D750, D810 and all the Canon DSLR. This would be for photographers, not Pixel Peepers. Even Nikon F4 had them.

On Leica Q First Impressions Review preview (581 comments in total)

It promblems takes great pictures. But you have to like the 28mm FL. F1.7 is good. The Fuji X100T is more for the rest of us, it has a single lens only. The price is more reasonable. For a few more grand you maybe able to buy a used M and f/2.0 35mm or 50mm lens.

Now make the camera with a M mount and it would be a great Leica deal.

On Mono a mono: Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) hands-on article (688 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nick932: Phase IQ260 is $45000, Red Epic-M (sensor) is $25000, so effectively, M246 is a bargain. Bravo Leica with your marvellous innovations. Not any other camera comes even close.

However, I had a brief test the past few weeks and M246 is an excellent camera worth having but I still prefer my M7.

Nick932,
Did you really compair the M7 with Film to the M246. I am thinking about keeping my Fuji stuff for digital needs and my M7 with for my main needs color and B&W. I shoot a lot of B&W if I use film. I shoot color only with digital...wich makes B&w an after thought. But would you say B&W film is better then M246?
Thanks .

Sorry DP not much of a preview. If the camera came in about 2/3 to 1/2 this cost. I may buy it. It is just over priced. Prehaps Leica should make this camera in an other country. they did with their 35mm SLR. Just too much $$$.

vesa1tahti: Impressive, like most of the Fuji lenses ! Time to switch from Nikon to Fuji ?

Fot it's day the Nikor 24mm f2.8 was a good lens, by todays sandards it would be a little lacking, it does have floating rear elements. I guess Nikon is trying to sell their F1.4. I would be nice if they made a new one. I had one and it producted nice images for me, the best of 24mm Japan had at the time.

Not really, I said the Nikon 24mm F/1.4 was more omney then Fuji. And that Leica 24mm F1.4 is a lot more money. The Fuji 16mm f/1.4 @ $1k is not that bad, compared to the others. The IQ is equal to, if not better.

D810, D610 are full frame cameras. They cost more. A 24mm F/1.4 cost much more then the XF 16mm F1.4. The cameras are very different. The Fuji is a APS-C , not full frame. The Fuji is trageting a different market. To compare apples to apples. You would compare Lecia and Sony FF cameras, in doing so they would be more alike.
