Don't you normally have to actually sell some regular editions before you come out with special editions?

In reply to:

Retzius: She writes like a 14 year old.

I'm sure she will hate that.

I hate her example images, they look like puke.

Its her own words...

She uses "hate" more times than I can count and says she doesn't like the pictures the 7D makes because they "look like puke".

Let's not pretend this is an eloquent article because its 2014 and any criticism is somehow sexist or racist.

She writes poorly... If any man or woman of any color or sexuality spoke like this in a meeting or product presentation they would be out of a job.

BrightTiger, if you post up an image in a challenge and someone comments to you, "I hate your image it looks like puke", don't pretend that somehow its OK if a female writes like that but not ok if a man writes like that.

Bad writing is bad writing.

I'm a relatively young photographer, but I'm also a professional. If I referred to things I don't like as "puke" and expressed my discontent as "hate" I would quickly lose credibility in a meeting or presentation. The venue here is different, but the consequences are the same. If she can't express her feelings better than the visceral language of a teenager than perhaps she should stick to shooting pictures for the paper.

On Tune in to DPReview Live this Thursday and Friday article (236 comments in total)

Please tell Canon that 2008 wants their sensors back.

Please ask Nikon if they are still "studying the demand" for a D400.

Please tell "Fujifilm" that in the digital age "Fuji" doesn't sound so anachronistic.

Please tell Sony... forget it, Sony doesn't care what you tell them.

Lastly, do we really need to interview two people from Lytro? I mean seriously, there isn't even a Lytro forum for the 5 people who have purchased their camera.

What kind of warranty would come with the item? I don't think the manufacturer would extend the warranty to the purchaser since they weren't the original buyer and rental items tend to get "beat".

Retzius: They are still "studying demand" for a D300 successor?

translation - if the 7D Mk II does good then we have to make one too, but we are too scared to launch our product first because then some executive in the company would have to commit hari kari if it sells poorly

It hard to be a leader when you are obsessed with risk management...

I don't see any talk of innovation, leadership, development of new technologies and new markets. Its all wait and see, evaluate, wait and see, respond to change, respond to the market.

They are never going to be #1 and overtake Canon with that mentality

Which is better? This or the Nikon D400?

Oh wait...

In reply to:

nir-vana: A journalist should ask the tough questions and not just let Canon representative make an online advertisement. The man talks extensively about video but the changes are minor, late and not substantial. No articulated screen, no 4K, low end 4:2:0, no focus peaking, no advanced codec, no WiFi, no touch focus, no word about full sensor readout or line skipping. All of that make it inferior to the latest MILCs of Panasonic, Sony and other mirrorless brands, or even to Panasonic latest compacts.
It seems like Canon still believe that their only rival is Nikon.

Investigation journalism and tough questions?

Bro, he's talking to a company rep about a camera... Not how to defeat ISIS

webber15: Retzius,,one of the points of this cam is a lack of electronics (less things to go wrong) so is purely mechanical...

If you think its a purely mechanical digital camera I have some beachfront property to sell you in Arizona.

What are the benefits of a backside illuminated sensor?

Using this logic, Leica could release an individual camera for each individual focal length fixed on the camera and tell you its forcing you to learn that focal length because now you can't change lenses.

They could charge twice as much and Leicaphiles would eat it up as "awesome"

audijam: no more LCD peeping....awesome.

part of the beauty of shooting film is you don't really know how it turns out and this camera captures this feature. awesome! but i still can't afford a leica so will continue with my EOS3.

to me, an new innovation should separate CMOS module from the body itself so users can always upgrade the module but keep the same body. just like we could use films from different manufactures.

But, its not a film camera.

Its a digital camera missing any way of displaying not only image preview, but also battery life.

Buying a digital camera and removing some of the features that actually made it useful is not progress. Its regression for the sake of nostalgia.

Is removing an LCD really "awesome"?

You know, you could just show some self control and turn off image preview...

Zvonimir Tosic: A big feat for a small manufacturer. Leica out-shined all the Japanese at this Photokina. Well done Leica.
I like how Leica diversified its crop choices:

Leica X with new f1.7/23 mm optics
Leica XE with retracting f2.8/24mm optics (same as X2, no video unfortunately)
Leica X-Vario with a zoom lens.
Leica T system camera, now with 4 lenses, that very much cover everything from 16mm to 200mm equivalent.

Add to this new D-Lux, new M bodies, new S bodies, lenses, etc.

They definitely out-shined everyone in MSRP!
