Cani: This 40-150mm f/2.8 lens looks so good...

Actually it is not at all all that big.
It looks big with the retracted hood, but otherwise it's exactly the same size we saw on prototypes.
Truth is I am going to refrain purchasing it, not for the size, but for the price!

Cani: The LX100 would make sense if it had a zoom ring and electronic control of some kind to control aperture. Too bad it is the other way round. These ridiculous ergonomics make it useless for me (and I guess many others who compose first, decide on aperture / shutter speed next).
As it is I sense a vague and non genuine attempt to appeal to old school photographers. Seems to be built in their corporate ADN to leave huge flaws in their products only to be solved by next gen device. Not sure it is so smart anymore.

Time will tell if serious photographers buy it at current selling price.

Is it normal that I did not notice the bug induced by firmware 1.4 on my E-P5?

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2306 comments in total)
In reply to:

Vladimir Vassilev: DPReview are making an excuse for Leica applying software corrections like most other mirrorless camera manufacturers. Wasn't Leica supposed to be like no other camera manufacturer?!? Wasn't Leica's uniqeness the reason for the ridiculously high prices they command?

Please, compare the Leica kit lens head to head with the ~$100 Canon EF-M 18-55 IS, which applies software corrections (abberation and vignetting) to JPEGs only and ONLY if you specifically tell the camera to do so in the menus. Unlike other mirrorless manufacturers Canon know how to make a decent kit lens and price it accordingly and so do Fuji.

Leica now follows in the footsteps of consumer electronics giant Sony... :) So much for the legendary brand name...

Dpreview is just being polite.
And basically yes they are saying Leica is no different than any other manufacturer.
This is enough to hurt, shouldn't it?

digitac: Obliged to own and take shots with a phone or you can't give responses to some questions, and the result of the survey is not posted !!!!
And this problem has been met by some other clients.
Badly written survey, a waste of time.

Strongly agree

In reply to:

onlooker: Questions 60 and 196 are missing "None of the above" option. BTW, I think Q.196 is the key to the survey - "Which of the following would you be prepared to pay DPREVIEW a small fee for?"

So i aborted my participation to the survey.

I am surprised : no whining about the absence of bokeh?

Joke aside, what's in front and on the left of the rover? Meteorites?

On Coming soon: Lens Reviews to return to dpreview.com article (272 comments in total)

DxO reviews are the most comprehensive ones available, that's great news.

Just a comment.

In about every test methodology lenses are tested at (an unknown) close focusing distance only, which is frustrating since lense performance might vary significantly across the range of focusing distances from the closest up to infinity.

More and more we see lenses that test successfully but disappoint in the real world due to poor performance at infinity.
So, imo if you had plans to include an appreciation of lens performance at infinity (other than sample shots) that would be another great improvement.

I think it's cool! Just the perfect (i.e., concise and sober) presentation that could lure me to reading the complete review of the camera even though I originally had no interest in it.
