Sorry Harrold66 I do not know who you are, as I have not seen you posting here before (I may be wrong), but in this forum we do not respond to people's opinions in that tone and we do not shout at them, so chill out, and if you have anything useful to say, say it the proper way, politely and with good arguments. Using capital letters also shows that you feel you arguments are weak and need to be shouted rather than stated.


I am kind of aware that using capital letters are considered  as shouting  which I always found kind of silly since this is a written silent forum

I do not use capital letters in all of my message but as  part to stress some of the most important points  I was making , like it has been done in most languages since ... well since forever

so if you want to read something else in the use of capital letters that what it means in English grammar  it is your privilege but I am not following you on this path

You are correct in stating that I normally do not post in the Leica forum since I do not own a leica camera anymore but that is not really relevant to the point I was making

Regardless of the forums , I sometimes feel the need to  alert other people s attention when instead of posting an OPINION , someone makes a lot of strong assertions ( like facts) which are plain untrue

too  bad you take issue on it but  I think you are missing my point entirely. Maybe some others won 't

The exact list of mediocrity points of Leica T:

Slow in many regards, according to the reviews.

REALLY ? And how many reviews would that be considering the camera is out for one day and all reviewers worthy of that title only had a preview of the camera. Not sure what your agenda is but your answers are suspicious.. To say the keast

AF is contrast detect only, no PDAF. A must today for new cameras of this segment.

Says who ? Who made you the king ?

Fujifilm X-E2, X-T1, Sony A7, Sony A6000, Canon M2, Nikon 1, Olympus E-M1 have it. Basically each company now has it.

Sensor size - APS-C. Sony A7/A7r are full frame with Carl Zeiss lenses. Some point-and-shoot are APS-C or close. I would also mention Sony R1 here as an example of innovation.

APS is BY FAR with m4/3rds the dominant sensir size in the mirorless market. Mirorless systems in aps size AND SMALLER represent in volume at least 95% of sales. 35mm sensor for mirorless cameras WITH interchangeable market is a NICHE. Market and will remain that way fir years to come. And not to mention that it would make even LESS sense for Leica to go that road considering the M. Lens line- up

I assume you are just confusing what the market wants with what YOU want. Maybe you should get a R1

No image stabilization. All other have it in some way - on sensor or in lenses.

partially true , which i guess is ok considering what is coming next

Maximum shutter speed is 1/4000. Many have it up to 1/8000

so what. ? The question is who really needs it ? Very few people i suspect

No weather sealing. Fujifilm X-T1, Sony A7/A7r, Olympus E-M1 have it.

yes and hiw do you justify this on a camera aimed at being used from the touch LCD. You should really try to THINK. Before you write

LCD does not tilt - all other companies have a camera with a tillable one.


No built-in EVF. Extra 600$ for it. All other companies have a model with EVF built-in.

Even LESS. true than the one before.

you clearly do not have a lot of verified facts in your thread

i personnally have zero interest in this camera but I think making up stuff as you go is a form of trolling
