pdelux: Only Leica could remove essential features (LCD) and have people applaud their Bravery. Whats next, lets remove the shutter button and just have a monocular.

Take your current leicas and turn off the LCD, and you simulate the same experience of being very annoyed that you cant review your images, just like in the film days.

Your point is valid it is not essential, but there is a reason why every single digital camera ever made (im probably wrong but mostly right) comes with an LCD. The ability to instantly see your image is what drove the invention of Digital photography more or less and that directly relates to the LCD.

Skulls: Can't save in RAW? All the smoke and mirrors and a crappy jpg?

Because at JPEG you've already compressed the image to 8bit and lost some potentially valuable information. That is of course if the sensor was able to capture anything more meaningful that 8 bits.

Thats Innovation! More Ram and remove the red dot. *Throw Bags of money* at leica.

The red DOT will come on the Limited Edition Version for an extra $2000 to be released later this year.

Jogger: Is the HTC actually allowing selective focus?

It seems like its just capturing depth info at the pixel level and applying fake digital blur based on that how far that pixel is from what is in focus. In this case, its not refocusing at all... its more like digital blurring based on depth information.

I've got the M8 it sometimes works well, and sometimes it doesnt and looks very fake. I find the best results are to reduce the amount of blurring to whats appropriate for the FL and scene. This examples seems to empoly max blurring and doesnt look like what a real life lense would produce in such a scene. No lense goes from in Focus to Max blur in such a basic 3 dimensional scene. Reducing the blur will assist in hiding the fall off between In focus and OOF that doesnt exist here.

RichRMA: Why do people, who either can't afford it, or have no intention of buying it, get so upset about a camera? Or did I answer my own question?

Who said these people cand or cannot afford it? If you can afford a D800 or A7r you can afford this..

Maybe they just think their money is better spent elsewhere.

In reply to:

Sir Nick of High Point: Some people enjoy photography, others enjoy talking about high ISO and sharpness. If you fit into the first catagory, then I believe you will understand Leica once you hold one in your hand. If you fit into the latter catagory, then you will never appreciate these cameras. Not that they can't do low light or produce sharp images. I'm just saying that there's more to it.

Every Camera should be assessed based on its own merit, not automatically attributed the merit associated to the badge which is printed on it.

The Analog Leica of Yesteryear does not equal the Digital Leica of Today.

I guess Nikon are sorry they are not Making money Fast enough.

As opposed to the D600 fiasco, they were very silent on that one.

Bravo olympus, way to listen to your customers, though late for the EP5, but better than never.

ngtszhodavid: Seriously is Dpreview gonna actually post a full review on this. How much longer do we have to wait.

Shouldn't be too hard to do a full review, just do a search and replace on the D4 review ("D4" replace with "D4s") update a few product images and review completed.

andywhoa: So DPR is where all the people who never grew up go to present their opinions? Most of the comments here are embarrassing. Would you act this way in front of your parents?

Where do you think they learned such behaviour?

pdelux: How to take a photo of a blood moon.

Step 1. - Go outside and take a photo of the the moon
Step 2. - In Lightroom or Photo editing software of your choice change the colour of the moon to "blood" colour. (In newer Olympus cameras you may use the inbuilt colour function in the camera)
Step 3. - Tell all your friends.

All great responses!! Lots of ways to skin a cat...

My point being, no one would be able to tell if you took a photo of a blood moon, or just took a photo of a moon and changed the colour.
