I'm sure it's a great camera, but is the price premium over the Fuji XE2 or Olympus E-M1 worth it? I'd say no, but I'm sure Leica will still have plenty of orders for this camera.
A simple way to designate sensor size would be in percentage terms with 100% being a "full frame" sensor. A diagram with comparison to a full frame sensor would be another way of achieving a similar result.
I bought and I'm very happy with it. I'd still love to see more pancake lenses from Canon though. An EF-S 22mm f/2 pancake would be very desirable.
I'm currently using Lightroom 3.6. Is it possible to upgrade directly to Lightroom 5? Do I get to upgrade for the reduced price?
I'd love to see a similar list of video editing software.
Interesting concept, but I would prefer an 18mm f/2 prime to combine with the exisiting 30mm f/1.4. It would probably end up around a similar price and would have better image quality.
M Jesper: They make the camera smaller but the 18-55 longer, hmm.
Maybe they needed a smaller body to compensate for the bigger lens ;)
Canon needs a few more pancake lenses to go with this body. Surely it wouldn't be too hard to modify the EOS-M 22mm f/2 to fit the EF-S mount. Also if they want to really take the business away from the MILC sector they need to re-engineer the zoom to make it more compact.
$450 for an optical viewfinder? That's almost as much as the cost of the camera itself!!
I don't like the choice of focal length. Something in the range of 35-50mm equivalent would be better.
I would like to upgrade from APS-C to full frame, but the real cost is in upgrading the lenses which would cost more than the camera body itself.
The combination of lens, sensor size, optical viewfinder and retro styling make it look like a great product. I look forward to reading a full review.
The absence of a Canon camera in the test group means that Canon really needs to update its waterproof camera models.
