Any news is good news...
joyclick: It is high time they gave us fixed lens FF compacts instead of tinkering around with small sensors.
You are right! But then, they would be killing a goose who gave them golden eggs. The price for RX1 is laughable, so they make a small body and very special and very expensive lens to justify the cost of a camera. Where's Kodak and others when you need to kill Japanese competition?
Too big for my taste, they could put 1"' or m3/4 sensor in it with 24-70mm f2.8-4.0 lens. That would would be a killer camera.
Amazing pictures. Now we need some amazing photography news...:)
Meh, only 200MP? My cat would be upset if I bring this camera home....
As long as they don't release anything wonderful like Vario X, I am OK with Leica:)
We need some Photokina news asap....
DenWil: I guess I'm lucky to be the only photographer in the world who does not have any use for time exposures in, lol, crop mode.
No, you are not alone!
Martyn McMad: Just had mine delivered today, not even out the box yet !
Check the box for bright spots...:)

Jogger: Doesnt Zeiss have a lens with a similar focal length?
This one has AF!
JEROME NOLAS: How much was it new?
How much was it new?
This is off topic but very important-we need some major news/test/whatever...Thanx for great work guys, we are so spoiled, that's why we complain (bitch)sometimes...
I hope next model will have 1" sensor and fixed lens...
Yes, creative and inspiring!
Great IQ, the only loser in this 1" game is Nikon...
Ww all hope it's not another Df like camera...
sdh: I'm inclined to think a lot of people's expectations are way out of line here.Canon's offering a true ultrawide lens at a price point that halves the previous price floor.
I've used this lens a bit in recent weeks and am very pleased with its images. Stopped down (around F/8) my picutres look consistently sharp from center to corner, even at 10mm.
Maybe my expectations were low (this is admittedly my first UW), but at $300 the lens would have to be truly garbage to warrant complaints about IQ. This lens is far from garbage.
AFAIK UW's are harder to design than standard FL's. This lens reeks of value.
I'm very happy with my purchase.
I think Canon will have to sell it for $1000 to get people interested in this lens...I am not a Canon guy but this lens is more than good!!!
samfan: That's how it's done Nikon...
That's how it's done Sony!!!
