Zvonimir Tosic: Thank God for Leica; they are delivering things as they should be done — right and without cutting corners. It was about time that someone teaches Japanese and Korean toddlers how mirrorless things are done.
This is pro thinking, first time in digital mirrorless history; everything else we had so far was kindergarten play.

Thats some big words for a camera company that aspires to one day reach 1% market share

It appears that Leica's CAD software is only able to draw circles and squares.

I can see a Leica engineer now screaming in a German accent: "Circles and squares only. We will have no ovals, triangles, or any complex polygons when designing this camera. Circles and squares only! Schnell!"

Ive heard the mirrorless-bigger-than-an-SLR is the new thing.

All the kids want one

That camera looks like it was made out of toilet paper tubes and cardboard boxes taped together and painted black :O

Retzius: This seems to be a solution in search of a problem. "I love taking pictures with my phone but just wish it had a bigger sensor" said no one ever....

If you are that involved in image making you will carry a camera. If you are happy using a camera phone you will just carry a phone. The market for this problemless solution is incredibly small.

So you're saying people want a phone with great image quality but then you say they "Now will they carry a camera dongle like this for their phone? Probably not."

Then it doesn't make any difference does it? The product is solution in search of a problem... the market for people that will actually buy it (which is all that matters anyway) is basically nonexistant

Otis and now Milvus? I am sure these are nice lenses but these are the most ridiculous names ever... they should just call their next high end lens the Bestus and get it over with.

Hipsters Unite! This is the perfect way to carry your Nikon Df and Fuji Instax to all those poetry readings.

Retzius: Nice video! Unfortunately, it really underscores Nikon's poor attitude towards DX users. If you are going to use all pro level FX glass and pro lighting (like in the video) you aren't going to buy a semi-pro DX camera... It is rather awkward that you need pricey pro FX glass to showcase your flagship DX product. If Nikon had made a smaller, less expensive, f2.8 trinity for DX I could see the point of a video like this, but the way things stand it seems like failed vision on Nikon's part.

With all due respect, the target market of the D7200 is not as a back up camera for the D810... Will Nikon defenders ever realize that Nikon made a poor decision not supporting semi-pro DX? Probably not.

On article Heavy lifting: Leica S (Type 007) sample gallery (197 comments in total)

a bunch of pictures of a fountain and a bowl of apples don't really show what this camera is capable of...

I think this camera is ridiculously priced except for very high end portrait photographers who book celebrity sittings. these types of images do not show why they would use this camera instead of a competing medium format brand.

thanks all at dpreview but I'm just keeping it real
