On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2291 comments in total)

Let's see: $2,000US for a camera body, $600US for an EVF, $600 for a lens adapter, and you don't even have a lens yet. All so you can have a camera that behaves like an iToy.

Since the new camera is about 15-percent less in cost than the former model, how long will it be before we see incredible downward price pressure on the older model?

vroger1: ...and meanwhile, they still won't repair the M8.

We need to read more of your story. I doubt that is correct. Sorry.

If sensor size maters then why is the medium format (MF) camera industry basically dead? Why isn't there a consumer MF camera if sensor size matters?

I was foolishly holding out hope for this camera. With the "slightly soft imagest, clipped highlights, chroma aberration," no thanks.

Waterengineer: My experience with DxO film pack is a joke.

I purchased Filmpack at Christmas 2012 and have been fighting with it to install properly on a CS5, Windows 7 64 bit machine since then.

I want to use it inside CS5 and it will only install as a stand alone.

I have gone back and forth with DxO for over five months now. They can't even tell me how to do it or provide a utility for it to install properly.

Topaz Labs and Nik software has installed easily and properly.

DxO, their people and their software are a joke. No way I would purchase Filmpack4 or any of their software for that matter.

Oliver:

There have been several claim tickets but here is one number for your reference: #15719. I have corresponded with at least three people within your organization.

What DxO needs is a script that will install the proper files in the Adobe>plug-ins subdirectory as Nik, AlienSkin and Topaz Labs have.

The reason I chose to buy DxO is because after testing I liked the feel of your film emulations the best of the packages commonly available.

I have two engineering degrees and have tried various ways of getting a plug-in install into CS5, including putting the files into the proper directory but hand. No dice it will not work. Works fine as a stand alone but that is not what I want - I want a simple work flow.

If I am having this much trouble, given my education and experience, imagine the difficulty other are having.

Nikon showing the lens with the optional collar/foot is sort of false advertising, IMHO.

Lenses from this company might actually make me purchase a m4/3 system.

Seems expensive.

The is at least 40-percent too high in cost. Obviously, the target market is the Leica "want-a-be" crowd. The Leica M9 price leaves a lot of head space for Fuji to make a nice profit, but they got greedy. This thing is no where close to a Leica.

Not the "run and gun" camera I was expecting, wanting or need. And no RAW, uber-disappointed. Sorry Canon.

Who is making the lenses? Nikon? Where are they making them? I bet they are farming out the lens sourcing.
