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.

good idea - but the design really have to be more purposeful and not such pointless minimalist T design - Please give us external controls and some grip to it. Potential users would love a black model too (my guess).

Marty4650: There seems to be a real disconnect between making an "affordable camera" for lenses that cost between $4,000 and $10,000.

I mean... why bother?

Can't the Leica lens owner afford a Leica camera?
If someone can't afford those lenses, they why would they buy this camera?

Did I miss the part where Konost was planning to create a few affordable lenses for their affordable camera?

I'd say Konost is solving a problem that doesn't exist. Perhaps they might have been better off creating an affordable rangefinder camera that uses Nikon F lenses?

I think this would be perfect for zeiss or voigtlander m mount lenses
There many great second hand one out there too.
Also - people I know think that the lens is more like a investment and like to pay for the good quality. The Leica digital camera prices are ridicules because it will not hold the value and the quality difference to any other camera (Sony 7R) is just not there.
So it makes perfect sense so produce a affordable platform to put that good glass on. Without going to Sony's playstation menu !

Txoni: Two few physical buttons for a digital camera, imho. They may want to make it look like an old film rangefinder, but for a digital one I'd miss extra buttons and dials for iso setting, EV compensation, image/menu selection joystick,...

I don't think that a touchscreen is the best solution for this kind of camera, where the user wants to have control on everything.

yes - feel that the target group want external controls, a bit more grip and a black version! - or at least I would find that perfect : )

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (281 comments in total)

after a short test... - i found the life-view AF now usable.
a draw back for me is the little LCD on the shoulder.
If it not show all my settings anymore and i need to use the big screen
(what I don't like at all during shooting) it becomes useless.
Make me wondering why not using the Pro-line controls from the D800/810 for such advanced camera.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (425 comments in total)

why apple want my pictures in the cloud?
Btw. not everyone got everywhere super fast internet to upload 45mb files from the D800.
I found it more then strange how apple first try to win you over and then do what ever they want. Knowing that apple is many times right with there prediction of the future development ,...my pictures in the cloud ...NO!

On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera article (919 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 : )
