'Influencers'....just that moniker is like nails on a chalkboard.

nerd2: I like Fuji OOC colors but the price is beyond absurd.

$1899 for APS camera?????

Speaking as a former Fuji owner (X-Pro1, 23mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4. M adapter) I would never buy another BRAND NEW Fuji product again. In the 2 years I owned the camera it depreciated to the point of almost being worthless. Fuji makes great cameras, but if you like them you're better off buying used.

Yes...all brands depreciate but in my experience Fuji more so then Canon/Nikon/Leica.

Clint Dunn: Nice looking lens. It would be nice if Fuji produced some fast glass though....

Make a GF 45mm 1.8 and then you've got something I would be excited about.

Photographic talent unnecessary.

I'll take two of everything -- one for me, one for my dog.

The jealousy runs strong in this one....

princecody: Leica could create limited edition toilet paper & charge $10k for a role & the Leica cult would still buy. Curious how many of you Leica buyers bought one already??

I picked up two...one for myself and one for my 7 yr old daughter.

wolfloid: It might be nice if a camera company focused on innovation rather than vulgar bling for the rich. Yes, the money is there, but where is the pride of engineering or practical, function focused design?

Uh....they release a new camera every 3-4 years. These luxury items make them a lot of money....and last time I checked the point of a company was to make money. You want to buy from a company that releases a new camera every 6 months, good for you buy a Sony.

Man...the comments here never end. 'Overpriced novelty', 'a sucker born every minute'...blah, blah, blah. Listen...it's a luxury product....it's overpriced like every luxury product is. You can't afford it or wouldn't buy it even if you could??..good for you. It's a free world and if some dude with a wad of cash wants to buy one so be it.

The Fat Fish: I'd love to see what Leica can do if they focus less on overpriced novelties for the wealthy and more on competing with the main three.

These 'overpriced novelties' are part of what keeps them in business.

When this lens was rumored a while back I said, why bother...the current lens is already stellar. Now they come out and release basically the same lens....

the decent exposure: for a nissin i60a a good price :) round about 400 dollar extra just for the red dot. I will buy three

msadat -Are you serious?? That is awesome news....I read multiple reports that it didn't....so you have full functionality not just full manual?? To be clear you are saying the Metz 64-AF1 works with the SL correct??? Obviously the Leica Af64 works...that was NOT what I was referring to.

Well...the earlier Leica SF64 is just a rebranded Metz 64-AF1.....but the problem is the Metz will NOT work with the Leica SL. It seems that Leica learned their lesson with previous products like their EVF that was just a rebranded Olympus and now they make sure only the Leica branded accessories will work with Leica cameras.

I wonder how long it has been since someone actually bought a brand new EOS 1V???? I bet these are old stock from a decade ago.....no surprise they're 'ceasing production'.

CameraTolerantGuy: I recently bought an EOS 3 (cheaper version of this) and I love it. Film is cool.

I owned an EOS 3 back around 2002....GREAT camera.

This happened to me multiple times in 2005 when digital photography was still relatively new. I think most people in 2018 realize you can't just take someone's work and use it for advertising. Apparently these guys didn't care....so pay up!

Clint Dunn: Pointless article. Everyone who knows photography knows what is meant by 'lens compression'....same as 'equivalent focal length'.....don't further confuse things by changing the nomenclature.

You clearly didn't read the part where I said, 'everyone who knows photography....'

Melchiorum: And here I thought this would finally be a good mobile workstation for my editing needs. Until I saw a maximum of 16 gigs of RAM. How is this "Pro"?

I just don't get it. What's the point of designing a powerful machine with the latest processor, a dedicated GPU and a 4K factory-calibrated screen just to cripple all of that with measly 16 gigs of RAM, which has not been enough for any serious work since the advent of 4K content? Do these people ever try using the products they design? Have they ever attempted at editing any medium-length 4K project in Premiere with 16GB of memory?

I bought a laptop with 16 gigs five years ago and it wasn't all that great for serious work then. Nowadays, when 4K60 is becoming mainstream it almost sounds like a bad joke. Also, 8 gigs as an option? Do you really need a calibrated 4K screen to browse facebook and watch youtube? Because those are pretty much the only things you are going to do with that much memory.

Not all 16GB RAM is equal....your RAM from 5 years ago would be a lot slower then what is in this machine. Besides, as a photographer who doesn't do video a machine like this one would be perfect for me.

Laptops are like this are why I won't buy another MBP when my 15" 2011 finally dies.

Where to start....
First of all, this whole concept that mirrorless has to be small is a bit of a red herring. As Sony has already figured out, top shelf autofocus lenses still end up being pretty big. There's other advantages to mirrorless besides size...like no mirror slap and the ability to mount a tonne of different 3rd party lenses.

I bought a used Leica SL a year ago and love it. I think Canon needs to produce a high end mirrorless to compete with the likes of the A9/A7Riii. The low end camera market is pretty much dead...go where the money is, it works for Leica.
