steelhead3: How can a monitor show 130% of sRGB?

sRGB is a limited colour space. This monitor covers up to 95% of DCI-P3 which is a wider colour gamut then sRGB.

CaPi: Interesting price point.. my first thought was "Where does the money go? Is there a PC somewhere hidden in it?"

@Greybalanced - A 65" LG OLED covers 99% DCI=P3 colour space, has support for HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and Advanced HDR by Technicolor. Oh yeah...it's also got a 65" screen and it's $4k vs $2k for this 27" Dell.

Long story short this Dell is way overpriced.

So....$2k for a 27" monitor or you can buy a brand new 65" LG OLED for $4k that covers 99% of the DCI-P3 colour space that also supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and Advanced HDR by Technicolor.

Seems to me that this Dell is WAY overpriced.

Jim Salvas: Why does everyone assume the majority of pro camera buyers are pros? My guess is that most of them are amateurs who would not have nearly this much trouble switching. If you're shooting your daughter's ballet performances, it may even seem cheap to switch to this (silent) and fast camera, while still looking like a pro.

Jackpot...ding, ding, ding!! I've been saying for years that the majority of Canikon Pro gear users are just wealthy amateurs.

Androole: No surprises there, I think Sony kind of yanked the rug out from under Fuji by discontinuing the old 16MP sensor that was the basis for both the X100T and the X70 a few months back.

The X100F was probably well underway already, but I imagine Fuji is a bit annoyed that they're going to need to iterate more quickly than expected on the X70 (or not, I guess - don't know what the market reception has been like).

@Elliot H - Yes it is which is why the 16mp sensor is discontinued. Feel free to put your head back in the sand.

24MP is the new 16MP....time to move on.

Angrymagpie: Gotta love that distinctive medium format look. You can immediately tell which photos were taken with the medium format cameras right away .... (Sarcasm)

Good for you, look at the money you'll save never having to buy a medium format camera!!

RStyga: I don't believe it; Leica builds superior products...

Well AF issues aside....the S line of lenses are widely know to be some of the top performing lenses ever made for any format. Carry on with your sarcasm though...

phill104: This made me chuckle. The law here would protect the customer anyway for at least 5 years making this a rather pointless exercise in pr.

Many of the lenses are older then 5 years

In reply to:

Fujica: "Leica offers FREE fix for faulty AF ".
"In what Leica describes as an act of ‘goodwill’ "

Shouldn't this be normal practice... Especially for the price you need to pay for their products. Its called afterservice and taking care of your customers.

By describing it as 'goodwill' I think there is nothing wrong with calling:
Leica snobbish and arrogant.

If the product is out of warranty then it is 'good will'. Of course the product should not have been faulty to begin with...

Angrymagpie: While this is nice, what we also need is a real upgrade to the 15' macbook pro

I'm still using a 2011 MBP that I updated in the last year with a 512GB SSD and 16GB of RAM. The thing runs perfectly and is faster then the day I bought it. I originally paid $2500 for my MBP but it was worth it as I am now on year 6 with it.

I will never buy another Mac Book Pro so long as Apple continues to solder RAM and other components so as to make them non-serviceable. When you can't update your own computer it's a waste of monet to dump $3k on a new MBP that rolls off the line with subpar specs.

In reply to:

Kaso: What I see is a sensor in a box. There is nothing wrong with prototypes, but it takes much more to release a production-quality camera that is ergonomically refined and a joy to use.

So you want a Nikon D810 or a Canon 5Div.....gotcha.

In reply to:

dennis tennis: Was this a "camera" review or a "system review". Basically, don't buy this CAMERA because it doesn't have the LENSES. If DPR had been consistent it how it reviews CAMERAs, it would have said. MFT sucks no F1.0 or faster primes, APS-C sucks no F2.0 constant zoom lenses. I've yet to see such comments from DPR in their reviews of mFT or APS-c CAMERAs.

An opinion of it's potential??? If that were the case how about an acknowledgement that perhaps faster lenses are coming down the pipe. Many of the arguments against the GFX are based around it's current roadmap of slow(ish) lenses. I would be shocked if Fuji didn't release faster lenses down the road.

Seems to me like a lot of the arguments against the Fuji are based upon the GFX's current lens roadmap of slow-ish lenses. I'm quite certain Fuji will release some fast glass at some point in time. If anything Fuji has shown they listen to their client base.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Say what you want about Leica but their cameras just work. They don't have the most impressive technology ipor spec sheet but they do just what they are advertised to do. You don't have to worry about thousands of settings, lens compatibility, special AF modes and so on. Just use it and it does the job, remarkably well for people who bought one

HughJ - Yes, the M8 had lots of limitations...I should know I actually owned one. The magenta colour cast was a major failing but easily rectified by use of UV-IR cut filters. What I am saying though, is the image quality at ISO's below 400 was simply amazing....superior to my 1DSii or 5D from the day.
Every camera has limitations and the M8's I happily worked through because of the amazing image quality.
