aris14: Cam's development and evolution is equally consistent with pc's rate of evolution in terms of Moore's law, at least in my eyes... Quite safe for predictions about what and when it is to follow...

I am glad that u can see through my eyes and u can correct me too... Obliged..!

C'mon guys, we all know that Canon's 5D Mark VI WCM (with coffee maker) was first... (In otherwords long love the cognitive dissonance)...

Mike FL: SONY as whole is in good shape, and stock price jumped almost 20% after earnings report.

20% price jumping in one day is a lot.

Ιt's maturity time for the industry of photography. So we are going to see some weird things which are not so weird at all....

We can see the subject from various aspects, our needs, abilities, purpose, habits, existing gear, ergonomics, reason, cost, support, even trends and fashion... Knowing our needs leaves a little to chose from, if only one or two...

KonstantinosK: We've been shouting for years for a waterproof large sensor compact and the first firm to come out with one is... Leica? Oh, the irony. I just hope this will drive other manufacturers to make one with a more affordable price. APSC would be wonderful but a 1" sensor could be enough.

C'mon it's not the place for such discussions...

Nikon was obliged to have something, they had the legacy they could not afford to break the chain, but it's 1" sensor is rather not compliant with the legacy I guess, all others have a rugged model just for filling their line up gap with small sensors with rather fair IQ overall. Most samples I' ve seen from these cams look inferior than any enthusiast cam in an underwater case. At least to my eyes. In the other hand we have Sony which has the ability to invest and shake the market for good, no matter its corporate culture faults (they all have after all) with a great ability to listen and adapt fast. And they can smell the niche and the opportunity quite well...

Fuji has found its market position and does well.
It offers greater overall quality than some flagship FF DSLRs some 8-10 years ago which is far from enough for serious enthusiasts and cognitive professionals.

Nikon lost the chance some years ago (in that time they did not offer a competitive DSLR), Canon, Oly Fuji and Pentax feel indifferent for the sector, so the most probable is that something will come from Sony. If there is a move from Pana. I guess that it will come out around an 1" sensor. Crystal ball spoke.
This cam however is aiming to upmarket users or some clever pros and scientists who have strong sponsors support.

Thoughts: It is surprising none of the Japanese companies managed to produce a serious rugged camera (a decent sensor, a bright lens plus RAW) but Leica has led the way.
Expensive, but set the new standard, should be applauded.

Kudos go to Leica marketeers..!

Gesture: Only 25+ dials, buttons, levels on the back alone. The modern digital camera just got lost in the interface-and the obviously locked into sub-assemblies that no one has the bravery to redesign and rethink.

Thinking is expensive. Designing from a blank sheet of paper and a pencil is more expensive. Building it is far more expensive. If being acceptable is priceless...
The deteriorating limit of a new approach is the users themselves.
The only factor that could things happen faster is an urgent/forced need.

I think that the cost of rethink and redesign aiming in somehow smaller dimensions (let's say 1cm) and weight (300 grams at least) would doubled if not quadrupled the R&D cost for this model.

From what I saw 246's files can be easily interpolated from 4 to 8 times rather easily their original size using a dedicated software comparing to non-monochrome competitors. That's something...
