Simple: Too expensive.
I bet somebody sneaked in and drank all the booze in the bottles of the old scene, and then took them in to get the recycling money. That's really why you had to re-do the whole thing. Heh heh...
Due to nostalgia, I still like the old one. That's not to say this new one is bad. It sure beats taking pics of a brick wall which so many photogs post in their threads.
Those aren't "dots on the playing cards." They are atoms! ;)
What a marvel of engineering design! Evolutionary or Intelligent? Who cares!
The first one of the baseball is as good as Sony's full-frame RX-1. Just kidding... ;)
Very interesting shapes' combination and composition. Well done!
Stan K, New York, NY, USA isn't in north America anymore?
I have K64 slides that are over 30 years old. Colors still as fresh as then. A great film. RIP, K64.
Well done. Like a beehive.
Fluidity of movement with a Yin-Yang reflection. Superb!
I bet a lot of really stupid really rich folks would sell their mothers to be able to get this and the must-have case. Many are called to photography but these few are not chosen, to paraphrase some ancient wisdom. I'm thinking of having a red-dot Leico logo tattooed on my forehead as a third eye instead.
Film will rise again!
YAWN........ Another non-event in the world of Leica grossly over-priced goods.
We had bad roof moss due to the temperate rain forest climate here in west-central Oregon, USA. But not this bad! :)
What's the little "pancake" lens on the body in the rear?
Compare the X100S with the lowly, humble and aging Olympus EPL-1 at ISO 100 on DP Review's interactive studio shot comparison widget. Zoom in on various parts of this test scene area. The Oly clearly out resolves the Fuji and has better JPEG colors/hues too.
ulfie: WHOA! 94mm (3.7 in.) long and nearly US $900. Rich guy's toy blunderbuss.
Not "rich guy's toy" but "rich guy's toy blunderbuss," with all the phallic undertones included. ;)
US $900 is cheap? The need for f/1.4 is waaaay over-hyped. An f/2 with IBIS will do just as well for probably 1/3 the cost.

What, being a spy camera I thought it would have .007 MP.
