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.
... but the lens looks soo plastic !
no enjoyable photo experience without a viewfinder !!!
35mm f1.4 and I will read to the rest of the updates.
the S is great and this will be a fine camera too. - love it!
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!
metering mood-switch gone :(
wow - a flip screen and a better design then the Leica T.
45min hand polished - bizarre marketing for a camera.
you got me : )
come on everyone - the D4s is very special and it's cool to be excited about it.Lord, why you guys browsing this page everyday : )
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
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 : )
yes - we can buy such facade pattern on pillows and bed sheds at GOD in Hong Kong. love his 100X100 set !
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 : )
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 heartmaybe this is why.
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.
FYIAbout Leica Historyhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6Mp5Ly_kbI
...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 youso, 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
