On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera news story (921 comments in total)

I got the D800 and the x100s and i wonder who is comparing the cameras.
If you need to concentrate at taking THE ONE image - everything on the Nikon is right there and will work - the Fuji is a really fine camera but I would not ask that from it

In reply to:

arndsan: love the design and all the external dials - but is there still a little LCD somewhere? Don't like to switch on the big screen to check the settings.

Yes, i know that concept -but that will be not much more then on my D800. - just the time set.
ISO/Shots available and a idea about the metering before you lift up your camera to the eye is great.

looks too slick to actual use it. ergonomics and haptic like a soap bar?
anyway - very beautiful and i think every face looking trough it will be not as perfect and ruin the design : )

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (471 comments in total)

I love the camera and everything about it. just took some shots wit the x100 so far. good stuff - but i have the feeling that the lens is good but not outstanding like the rest. If the the next generation get THE LENS (F1.4) i will forget that i already have a very good camera : )

On Leica announces $1300 special edition 'G-Star RAW' D-Lux 6 news story (266 comments in total)
In reply to:

h2k: Funny the rage expressed here. Why not "not even ignore it", if the news is so ephemere? Envious?

Besides, I'd still suggest to mention essential specs right in the front-page news text, like sensor size and lens data.

why ignor it?
i think that everyone interested in photography still respect the Leica M and the good lenses and would love to own one somehow (I would like too).
This kind of stuff really destroy the respect for THE ICON of photography.
It becomes a ridiculous luxury fashion item and this beaks every photographers heart
maybe this is why.

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor news story (757 comments in total)
In reply to:

starwolfy: Since most people here seems baffled by Leica, saying they didn't market well their new product etc. Saying that Leica missed the point and nobody here will want one over an already owned NEX7, Fuji X100, or OM-D...etc. I think people here should wake up and understand that this camera was never designed for them.

You are simply not Leica customer target. That doesn't mean you cannot understand the "benefits" of the "counterparts" of owning this camera. That just means you are not the target audience so just move on because this was not design for YOU. You are not part of it and most people commenting here just doesn't have the cash for it anyway.

I don't understand why people stay here waiting for Leica to release a X100s-Leica-something for half the price that would sell like hot cakes like they say. That will never happen. Leica is Leica and demand premium price and that's it. They will never sell cheap.

You don't ask bikers why they chose Harley Davidson over a Kawasaki.

...and Harley Davidson and Kawasaki are both great bikes.

But a Harley Davidson with a Suzuki engine would be what we are talking about.

very smart of you
so, leica don't have a tradition and responsibility to keep it?
Will Leica end up like Rollei then?
You red the press text ? - they didn't wrote that this is for rich people who have no idea about photography.
The Leica customer I know buy the famous Leica f1.4 lenses and f2.
and people have the right to blame Leica for using there heritage for selling that average product for ridiculous price.

so far,...have a smart day

why leica didn't put that into the specs before even developing it?

lord - the press text sounds like composed by the north Korean news.
Other camera brands do there homework too.
The leather case with the cutout for the red dot make the strategy very clear.
Wonder at what point the classic Leica M user embarrassed about it.

On Leica teases 'Mini M' for 11th June release news story (304 comments in total)

I bet Leica is doing the same as Fuji with the X-Pro 1 and put a EVF in and get something like the Fuji X-E1. That would open up a whole new range of customers with no extra development since everything is there already.
The Name Leica M-E1.

On Photokina 2012: Interview - Stephan Schulz of Leica article (221 comments in total)

wow - how arrogant and wrong is this :

People who ask about cameras like the D800 have never experienced medium format. They just look at the pixels, but the world is not only pixels. You can get small DSC cameras with 14, 16, 20MP but no-one asks 'should I buy that 500 Euro compact.

there a great photographer out there doing fantastic work with this great gear nikon and canon providing and in the meanwhile is leica disconnecting from the photographing world with there ridiculous prices for digital cameras.
And becoming something like LV bags for rich chines and comparing people who are passionate about photography with pixel-counting nerds
Hearing this i wouldn't even buy a leica if i had the money.
