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.

The quirky Sigma DP1 & 2 Merrills outresolve these for sure. Seems as if Nikon took off the low-pass filter but ... so what?

The interplay of light & shadow, and geometries is VERY interesting in this image. Well seen and well captured!

DxOMark test results/specs are great yet the actual image quality even for the "originals" are really no better than say the Panasonic 20 f1.7's which costs about 1/3 and is only a tad slower f-stopwise and a tad tighter FOVwise.

Good maybe even very good IQ but not any better than my $140 Oly E-PL1 body with 20/1.7 Panny lens. Really!

Even Oly's "ancient" E-PL1 w/ Panny 20/1.7 runs circles around this Canon's IQ.

DP2 Merrill low-ISO shots may even exceed these in resolution.

Hmm... even viewing enlargements of the "Original" images, they don't seem light years better than m4/3s, e.g., Oly OM-D EM-5 can do nowadays. Some of these nighttime, high-ISO shots too are very chroma blurred, again not all that different than m4/3s or ASP-C.

I had the Konica Hexar (Silver) film camera with super 35/2 Hexanon lens once. It's been reincarnated in the Sony RX1 ... kind of. Though I didn't and don't care for a fixed, 35mm FOV restriction, many feel comfortable with it. A good move by Sony. If they can offer RX2 with interchangeable lenses, they'll be satisfying many photogs, pro and amateur, and making lots of Yen to boot.

Nice yet a tad overexposed. The right side of his face has blown highlights.
