If'the failure comes from a misconception, which is the case here, no delay is required to have the warranty applied . Even after 6 or 7 years' you can let or repaired for free if you can prove than it is due to a bad design.

Debankur Mukherjee: Nikon should learn from Leica........

Nikon has a quick service and do not ask you to pay 300 usd to have a special quick repair as leica does. You do not pay, ok , wait for 3 to 4 weeks before having it repaired.....

Bashir Lunat: To all those non Leica user commenting,its none of your business how Leica handles the problem.
We,the Leica users know how to address Leica management and we have always got positive response from them.
The M9,despite problematic CCD, still remains one of the most desireable camera.
You wont read any nonsense in Leica users forums.

Of course it is everybody's problem : if I want to buy a Leica within the year maybe this makes me thinking twice before investing so much money....

iAPX: So now we know the lifetime expectancy for a Leica M9 : 5 years.

My old Nikon D300 had a better warranty out-of-the-box (and is still in use, 10 years later).

Yes it would definitely

Marty CL: Hmmm. Maybe Leica needs to charge an additional "premium" to assure a longer lasting sensor.

You already pay 300 usd a year for a quick repair option, did you know that ?

PLAMBERT: My Leica M240 was bought used and after a few months the rangefinder cam was out of adjustment (90mm would not focus infinity). Leica said the camera was under 2 years old and so fixed it for nothing including a general check and the latest firmware.
Would Sony do the same, or Nikon?

Of course, at least in Europe : they just apply the law which gives 2 years warranty. I do not understand your astonishment ?

In reply to:

Tim Gander: Isn't it European law that expensive consumer goods are covered for up to six years? I don't think Leica can sidestep that legislation, it's just whether owners are aware of its existence. Certainly whenever I've had a problem with my early 2013 Macbook Pro, the Apple store was quick to say I was covered under EU law.

How can you explain that all second hand shops in U.K. offer only 6 months warranty, which is illegal ? So in Germany and holland. It seems many shops do not know the law......
Eu regulations say : second hand are covered by ONE year warranty.

Totally agree. What's the use of having a technical demonstration of after 30 seconds, your only wish is to stop that crazy speedy film. You need time and to be relaxed to make a good experience of cities...

In reply to:

Ben Herrmann: As I've said it through the years on these forums, every brand is capable of producing cameras that capture outstanding IQ and this M6 is no different. There will be the naysayers and then there will be the folks who love the new release(s)l. It's all part of the game.

The Canon EOS M series of cameras have been a pleasant surprise for me, having "accidentally" jumped into this line a few years ago. Since then I've acquired the M, M2, and M3 - love 'em all, despite them having quirks with regards to operational characteristics. Because in the end (for me), it's the IQ stupid!!!! And there's where the M series do quite well.

However, I've got to admit that I don't see myself getting any more M series cameras until Canon ups the ante by producing more lenses. It's a bit embarrassing that such a large company as Canon did not have a game plan for a continuous release schedule of suitable EF-M lenses when they announced and subsequently released the M line of cameras.

I totally agree with you, this the reason why I bought a Panasonic gx85.....
Canon, where are the lenses ???

The problem with this Canon M series is the samė as Sony a6xxx series : no good lenses to,match the bodies. This is where Fuji , Olympus and Panasonic win

Small, why small ? You can hardly tell a difference between 16 and 24 mgpixel...
Pro cameras have 16 mgpixel.

In reply to:

kodakrome: To me, landscapes are mostly boring photographs. Might as well be shooting a scene on the moon. Most landscape pictures would be much more interesting if there were some people in them.

All human beings are seeking for harmony and beauty.
This is the reason why people make landscape photography. You can make landscape photography AND take pictures with people. There are so many ways to take pictures with people....

In reply to:

LarryLatchkey: Someone else noted that before, but I'm quite surprised seeing how soft Fuji's lense is compared to the Ricoh's!! In the center the Fuji shows a tad more detail (I guess that's is Ricoh's JPEG engine...), but look at the sponge, look at the feathers! The GR is way ahead! What it this?!

(Obviously, for most people the Fuji and Ricoh are the only realistic options)

Ricoh Colors are so so..... plus dust problems and what about Ricoh's future ?

Triangle Physiotherapy: any better camera than this ? I want to be professional photofgrapher.

Please suggest cannon or sony ?

Pro photography is a protected profession in many countries. You need school learning for that to have access.
There are as many camera choices as photographic options : advertising, clothing, landscapes, photojournalism, etc.
If you do not know which camera to use, this means you are not yet ready to be a pro photographer.

In reply to:

DPPMetro: The GR I wanted to love, but two examples suffered dust spots on the sensor, despite having been babied. It was a disappointment that they basically phoned it in on the GRII, as if they were uninterested, but I guess now we know why- Ricoh is having severe issues and enough that they are toying with shutting down Pentax, too.

The other issue with the GR is that the implementation of that incredible sensor didn't give users the K-5 level images, particularly in low-light, that we were hoping for. Base ISO is wonderful, though, but between 1600-3200, noise creeps in very fast. Some of it is the good kind, but towards 3200, it's just too much.

To be honest, even though a zoom, the RX100 ticks so many boxes. Even low-light performance is pretty much on-par with the GR and the extra 25% resolution allows for more NR, if needed, while still maintaining detail. Not to mention, the fast lens...

The rx100 is a pain to use : slippery body, battery door prone to open accidentally, poor poor battery life (approx 200 shots), inaccurate autofocus, slow to start up...

jim seekers: My brother owns a Sony RX1R II and Fuji X100T and the Colours from that Sony are the best I have ever seen, I have always loved Fuji X100 series Colours but they don't come close to the RX1R ii, The images it produces have like a 3D pop to them with a beautiful dreamy and creamy background, it's hard to explain until you see it and skin tones are amazing and I would even have it over the Leica Q, people complain about battery like, just buy a few ... problem solved, I own a Leica X2 and Sony RX100 Mk1 but that RX1R II has the Best IQ , Punch and Colour Tones I have evrr seen from a camera and I am not a huge fan of sony colours but the colour output from the RX1R II is different due to that razor sharp zeiss lens.

Colors ? No, no....
when dim light, shift to cyan/magenta....very very problematic.

Tieu Ngao: Imagine the Nikon Coolpix A Mk2 with the features from the unborn DL18-55! It'd be at least as good as the Fuji X100T.
Nikon is not smart to ignore the premium compact market.

Cool pix A was a very bad selling at the time because too expensive.... reason why maybe they hesitate to invest again in such a camera....
But yes I agree, at 400 usd it was a terrific camera.

IdM photography: Even if both the Sony RX1R II and the Fujifilm X100F have 35mm (35mm equivalent for the Fujifilm) lenses, it is difficult to compare an APSC sensor with a FF sensor... Obviously the RX1R II camera is much more expensive, but if you want to do very serious (or professional) phoography, this camera is the only option... The RX1R II has the best existing FF sensor... It also has a central shutter (no vibrations when taking your photo), and should be declared Winner.

The Sony has also serious drawbacks : (very) poor battery life, shutter button extremely disagreeable, plasticy battery door, slippery body. So lens and sensor quality are not all the question.....
I also disliked the Fuji x100 because it has no stabilized lens and because of too high moire.
Fuji is told to issue a pro x100, wait and see...
