Re: Leica S2 review, if you please :)

Let them bash. Bashing is not effective unless substantiated.

As to the limited lens range: When Lighrtoom 1.0 came out, I once filtered my files by metadata and looked at actual focal lengths that I shot pictures with. Next week I sold all my zoom lenses. In about to months I got rid of 14 and 17-35.

All that happened in 2006. After six years I can tell that I had not been inconvenienced a single bit. What's important, I shoot for clients, which does not always let me choose things to photograph according to lenses that I have.

The moral is, the necessity of covering the whole focal range from 14 to 600mm is highly overrated. I'd rather spend my money on a better system than on a cheaper alternative, which includes all possible lenses in the world.
