ttran88: Could we come up with something more original than "price too high " troll attempts. It's getting played out guys.

@QuartertoDoom - I don't have any medium format gear in my list because I no longer shoot film and sold my Mamiya 645. I plan on buying the Fuji GFX in a couple years once I can find a used one.

Clint Dunn: 'Overdeveloped'....I guess that's what you do when you're committed to a M4/3 sensor and need to try and create value in a $2000 camera.

@William - It depends on the lenses you use...but generally speaking 50mm will work ok on the A7Rii but typically the wide angle lenses do not. With the earlier A7 series cameras there was a lot of colour shifting in the corners and also 'smearing' of the detail in the corners...how bad depended on the lenses used. Some, like my Zeiss 35mm Biogon were terrible but others not as bad.

Your A7Rii has a sensor that plays a little nicer, much of the colour shifting is eliminated but it still has a problem of smeared details in the corners. The reason for this is the Leica has a thinner sensor stack then the Sony and also microlenses on the sensor designed to work with the close flange distance of the Leica wide angle lenses.

@QuartertoDoom - Why did you bother with an E5, surely an iPhone is good enough, after all sensor size doesn't matter remember.

Did I miss something or did DPReview not comment on dynamic range???

Nope, no plan to buy one I just think the price is crazy.
@QuartertoDoom - If you think sensor size is just about 'a couple extra dirty pixels'....then move along.

No I'm saying that Olympus has no choice but to 'overdevelop' because they're hamstrung by a 4/3 sensor. With respect to Leica....yes I have an M240 and yes it is overpriced...but to this day there is NO other camera that performs properly with all rangefinder lenses. The Sony's and Fuji's and whatever else people adapt Leica/Zeiss M mount glass to do not perform properly.

I also think Leica needs a shakeup...now that Fuji is releasing a medium format G1X with lens for roughly $8k it will be a tough sell for Leica to flog a FF rangefinder for $7500.

@Tommi K1 - I've been shooting since the mid nineties using everything from an EOS 3, to a Mamiya 645 to my current Leica M240...but feel free to tell me I don't know what I'm talking about. At any rate...the Olympus is a GREAT camera if image quality is not on the top of your list of requirements for a camera. Yes, it is fast and capable and this may allow it to get shots you wouldn't get with say an A7ii...but the image quality is not as good. I've printed from all sorts of different cameras up to 24x36 and I definitely see a difference.

Anyway...the Olympus is small, compact and very fast. It's also overpriced. You say that there is nothing in APS-C or FF that competes with it...so by that logic we should start to see all the Canon white lenses disappearing from the sidelines at sporting events....yeah right.

Really?? You're tired of 'price too high' comments??? How about sensor too small??? How about...price is too high for a camera with this tiny sensor....does that work?

vscd: Seriously, Wh*Th*Fu*. I would like to see the results... if it beats the OTUS 55mm 1.4 it would be quite amazing, but I doubt it will be anywhere there @f2

$8000!!!eleven!!1!

Objective...says the guy who references DXO and has probably never even touched either lens. The link I sent you was to Roger Cicala's tests....he is fairly highly regarded. DXO hasn't even tested the 50mm APO. Roger Cicala has no skin in the game...he didn't care which lens came out on top.
As for being polite...you started this thread saying Wh*Th*Fu*.

@vscd - Can you read??? I already showed you a link that shows the 50 APO is sharper then the Otus. However...it also just happens to be a LOT smaller.

Toselli: The color may be stupid, but the lens itself does really perform great, this is an 85 megapixel sample (with adox cms 20 film):

@entoman - 'But seriously, can you really see a photographer (as opposed to a poseur) wanting to mount a bright red lens on his/her camera? Or is this the latest fashion?'

You've obviously never been to Hong Kong....or mainland China.

@Grock - Just because people don't think the photo deserved to win doesn't mean they 'don't get it'. It just isn't that good.

NaBalam: "Leica's niche is not "photographers who desire the best", but rather rich point-and-shooters without a brain" SO TRUE. If you take a picture with a LEICA, oh boy you have to say it out loud! "Picture of my cat, #leica #noctilux #FINEART" Otherwise what's the point of owning such amazing equipment?. Leica does not offer NOTHING, absolutely nothing that actually helps to get better photos. Good Glass? Fuji makes great glass, Speed? No way Jose, Weather resistant body? High ISO performance? Size? Leica is about one thing: THE LEICA EXPERIENCE and this so call "experience" has little to do with photography. I love how people tries to justify spending big money on stupid things. "If you've never owned a Leica you don't know what you are talking about"... mediocre.

@NaBalam - No...buying a D-Lux instead of a LX100 would be silly...since they're essentially the same camera. An M240 is not a rebranded Panasonic, Fuji, Sony whatever. In fact, the Leica rangefinders are the ONLY cameras that perform properly with rangefinder lenses. Have you used rangefinder lenses?? I'm not just talking about Leica...my Zeiss 35mm 1.4ZM is AMAZING.

Once again....keep talking about what you know nothing about, you make yourself look foolish.

tkbslc: I get a bit weary of these "largest ever" or "fastest ever" or "most megapixels ever" claims. It's pretty obvious that each year or two as technology advances that the new gear will be "the best ever". Claiming to have the "best ever" every single year, is a little much.

Something a bit less dramatic would be a lot better. Maybe, "Seagate increases portable drive capacity to 5TB".

@AbusiveReducer - 'Whereas a camera that has 32 megapixels probably won't do anything you couldn't do with 24 megapixels'

...or you could look at it this way....your 24mp camera probably won't do anything you can't do with 16mp. See what I did there?

dennis tennis: typical DPR comments, without studying the submitted work, posters will of course claim that they can do better. Isn't this the norm here? Quantum physics? meh easy stuff I could do better "if I wanted to". Brain surgery, meh. for idiots, I would have been a better surgeon, "if I wanted to".

I could do better....no...seriously....
The winning photo is technically sound but other then that it is completely forgettable. In my opinion the nude of the old lady is a much more interesting photo.

Actually...forgetting about other characteristics like rendering, bokeh etc the Leica APO is sharper then the Otus 55mm.

The Leica is also TINY in comparison....although it lacks weatherproofing and AF and is slightly slower as f2 is the fastest aperture. Is it worth this kind of money??? For most of us the answer would be no...but if you can afford it you're getting a heck of a lens. It's called diminishing returns.
