In reply to:

arndsan: I went to the shop and had a hands on myself.
My thoughts after this...
After years of blaming Leica for departing from the photographer needs - I would say this is a great camera. The price is something to swallow and i guess many people who really want to have it can't get it (including me) . Anyway - after so many hype about some new cameras, this seems to be worth to buy and try to forget the price : )
but...The EVF still was not very convincing and I wonder why there is no improvement since everyone is calling this the future.
....I can imagine that this could be a camera to get and stop visiting dpreview for a couple of years.

Rishi Sanyal - it is : )

I'm just so tire d of it. other manufactures have quite a long history as well and the employees at leica working for salaries in a international competitions.
It's about investors and marketing decisions that this price is that high. I would like to have a Leica too, but it something Chinese tourist buy and enjoy.
You can everywhere see the new followers of OSKAR BARNACK and there fantastic work!

In reply to:

arndsan: wow - very expansive but finally a attractive camera next to the M.
wonder how 28mm and 1,7 work in regard to DoF and if we get 1:6000 wide open with the leaf shutter. It's frustrating to have only 1:1000 wide open using the Fuji X100s.

it's expansive - I didn't said it's too expansive : )
The camera would be a no brainer if it had a M mount and you could take the Af lens down and put the old manual focus lens on.
Should be no problem with focus peaking.

arndsan: I hope Sony will fully understand what photographer on this level need and clear up the ridiculous menu and make the camera more intuitive to use. I for example don't need a 3 level smile detection.

Hi Zeisschen
so - what is that for a childish comment? It's very simple isn't it.
If you buy this kind of camera you want a tool to take pictures and not a xBox like menu to spend your afternoon on it.
The Menus i'm talking about is carried over from the Sony point and shoot. - I guess you just have no idea.
Think - why people are willing to pay 4500 for are Leica Q without this Menu overkill.

I know some beginners who got the Sony because it's the "best"and the "future". This guys come to me and ask me about all the icons on the screen. Spending hours to find out what accidentally switched on or why something is not working. Not finding simple settings. Agree it's a fine camera but i don't feel that i want to go through this when I fully understand my lovely D800.

anachronism or a modern marvel?
The monochrome is so special that the question is quite irrelevant.
Why not putting the "normal" M to discussion?

if we get this trouble covered, ...what about a Leica M review?

what is the point of adjusting photos without the brushes. Even in old film days you would kind of do the adjustments for over or underexposed for special areas.
Ok there is LR and it seems to be a bit more advanced.
The annoying thing is how apple always dictate you what to do.
I thought as an graphic focused company it will keep up this values. but now everything becomes iPhone, quick, meaningless and annoying.

In reply to:

arndsan: actually I don't need much features from aperture. Just use auto curves, doge, burn, definition brush and the colour slider. If Photos got this I might try. Anyone know?
For sure I don't will upload my images to the cloud - what ever the future will bring.
Just checked the LR price and it seems OK. would get used to it I guess. I don't like the IPhoto way anyway

right - after research I found out that the brush features are gone.
What is the point then Apple - when adjusting always to the whole pictures and not just to certain areas of it, I think it miss the point of an adding tool entirely.

On Fujifilm X100T Review preview (671 comments in total)

I just went out with my x100s today. So much fun shooting with it. I pray that fujifilm will just carefully refine this camera further without doing some big silly changes. Ok - yes, the lens could be somehow f1.4 and the leaf shutter could have at least 1/2000sec wide open....please!!!

On Fujifilm X100T Review preview (671 comments in total)

love my x100s but...
options and feature are agains the approach of the camera.
If I want to use f2 with more then a 1000sec I need to change ISO or switch on the ND filter or the electronic shutter, how is that intuitive. Give us a 2000sec at least. When I do my setting and learn then that I'm with 1300sec overexposed and I need to think about a other strategy to get around this, I found it very confusing and not engaging. If the electronic shutter is as good as the leaf shutter why not just go for this one.
Same with all the soft buttons - after picking up the camera I need to check all the settings over and over again. The flash just fire, the ND filter is on because it's on the FN button and so on...
And please make the battery meter more reliable...
That's what is missing.
Putting a little screen into the OVF is not really a update - if the manual focus is on wire, I will not use it anyway.
so far

I thought mirrors is so small that it can have it always with me and it "don't drag me down" - still producing designated came bags make the whole idea useless.
Would just get a inlay or a pouch what give me room in my regular bag to do all the other stuff in the city. that's would be Urban Approach.
The Think Tank looks now more like a lap top bag what actually nobody carry anymore as well.

In reply to:

Chaitanya S: I thought whole purpose of mirrorless system was to have lenses that were smaller and lighter. That 90mm macro is bigger and heavier than Tamron 90mm VC lens designed for slrs. These mirrorless systems are mainly a marketing gimmic and they have a diminishing returns based on sensor size to lenses. APS-C and micro 4/3 format seem to be right choice for those people who want to travel light and still want to take good quality photos.

agree !
the A900 was sony's best camera so far.

someone said this already -
nobody in the video using aperture or focus or is dealing in the time. - too funny because it all about the manual controls with this camera.
Looking at this movie again and i'm sure there is nobody serious behind it.
